  1. I am aware that you are reluctant, but feel it could be time to play your joker! Live blog! I am still in trouble from the illness picked up on that cruise, 2 courses of anti biotics later, I have still got a barking and reaching cough and still producing,
  2. Sorry Clodia, this has nothing to do with air con, lungs full of yellow mess, on board air borne virus we were told. So many staff from day 1 with cleaning products all around the ship, all wearing gloves, Mr wishy washy on deck 11 most of the time
  3. Re Medina breakfast: Fried bread is an option, but not on the menu, we also found that the breakfast sausages were actually chipolatas, and beans or tinned tomatoes were served in little ramekins the smallest sizes possible, so we always asked for 2 portions, Also the Medina lunch time we always had a mix and match lunch, choosing whatever we fancied from whatever parts of the menu, and as much as required, but always washed down with a bottle of Chablis, or Money Spider, and always on table 109. Trust it will not be to rough for both of you going forward
  4. Exact Sturgeon equivalent in Portugal is called CINARIZINA, hope this helps
  5. Selbourne. we had the same problem with our suit cases not being able to fit under the bed, our cabin steward, part covered them with plastic and placed them on the balcony. I was not happy with this arrangement. I finally lifted the bed and then kicked them under, no more problem
  6. Selbourne ,have a good cruise, recommend you say hi to Ben, Hotel and Catering manager and Cleo a white shirt, one strip, from Zambia, both superstars! Looking forward to your posts ,I have not posted about my opinion on board in December, thought it may be better to let you form your own opinion. Looking forward to it
  7. Thank you all for your kind wishes, am aware of why we locked down for such a long time. defiantly not mild, I have felt ill for at least 12 days, on a coarse of anti virials, and as a full time carer no choice but to carry on. Enough of our wows We wish you all a Happy and Peaceful Christmas, and may Your God be with you, in the New Year
  8. Strongly suggest taking Benylin Chesty Coughs, or similar ,forgot to take ours, so purchased Spanish version in port, Used 2 bottles on cruise, along with loads of tablets, yet sitting here, still renching and coughing and going though tissues in boxes. Due to pay final balance of 19 night April cruise on Aurora today, might be happier to drop £300 deposit at this time, will make decision later
  9. Thank you. understood that it was being explained as an air born virus? We were told that the Doctor had caught it at one stage. Coughing every where, selfish stupid people not using hankies coughing there guts out. Never seen as many crew on cleaning duties and also though out the day. Last evening you could see that a lot of the crew were struggling, red watery eyes gave it away. Sorry to report that in our opinion the Menu and Food in the MDR was incredible poor, did not order main course on 5 occasions, also being coaxed or bullied to leave by white shirt, at 10.20 whilst still finishing wine very poor. The glasshouse menu's have also become very boring, maybe due to us over using them. on previous occasions Very stale and rushed Best for us was Medina for lunch, mixing courses. Overall it is the staff that makes it, the product itself, is now very third world in our opinion.
  10. First time for us, a calendar and a diary. however Still coughing from Aurora R323,a very sick cruise, so may be the wrong time for appreciation from us.
  11. Thank you, Off today stopping overnight in Ringwood.
  12. I do not think it is limited to fix dining, I have had bottles from the package in the Glasshouse and in Sindu,
  13. Although it is of no interest to us, as we cruise under the radar, not even a phone, I will ask, and report back on our return
  14. Selbourne I am aware from your previous postings that you tend to have two bottles on the go, white and red. We are on Aurora again on Friday, I will ask the question for you and report on our return. Also for your upcoming adventure may I suggest that you down load and print off,16 square sudoku, I find they keep me occupied on sea days.
  15. We can confirm after looking at our Aurora May statement, that the wine packages are priced nett no further discount
  16. We have had the Commodores package on most of our cruises, it includes the wine that we would normally drink at restaurants when we go out out. On the first night, we choose the first bottle and also the second bottle for the ensuring evening. When we arrive at my table the wine is already there, so its all about convenience for us. No wine and food matching, we drink what we like. We also only order whilst on board
  17. My friendly Nigerian, who calls regularly, from over seas, always enquires which Bank I use, I tell him ant and dec, just saying
  18. Pete How was the muster briefing done? In May, we went to our muster station presented our cruise card and then went to our cabin to listen to the briefing on the TV is this still the case please? Seems like you have had quite an experience, does look cold though!
  19. Accepted but where are you, in the lounge!! I am in the room!!
  20. As I say on a few occasions having crossed palms with silver, I was able to remain in place.
  21. Maybe worth contacting the Hotel and offer to pay for a later departure. This has been successful for me on a few occasions.
