  1. 10 items £32.00,individuel prices are also available Not sure about OBC,having spent mine on day one on combined wine packages.
  2. I use the on board laundry via the white bags, in the wardrobes.I fill out the form and give to my cabin steward. 2 days later laundry is washed and ironed and hung back in the wardrobe. Used 3 times on my recent 16 night baltic cruise.
  3. We were on Aurora R307 Baltics,turn up on time, not a great problem.
  4. Cannot speak for the forum above my pay grade,suggest you ask them
  5. Your experience was not the point of the post. The OP gave there opinion of there experience, and being on the same cruise and at the same time,I whole heartily agreed with them,Twas you that queried OUR experience
  6. Full plates! your having a laugh! not that I require that amount of food, My expectation on mass catering is at the school dinner level of the late 50s and early 60s slightly enhanced by more adult type food.
  7. Do not let them win! Keep going report what you find,others will make there own minds up
  8. I can report the Glass house is back to the way it was,wine flights and all.Medina for lunch was also acceptable.Sindu was rather over staffed to the point of being intrusive.also cost cutting was in evidence on our visit. Dinner in the MDR second sitting was very poor, on one occasion Chefs Recommendation, was Vegetarian Cottage Pie which consisted of a ramekin of vegetables with a sort of mash potato on topI.although the staff in the restaurant were brilliant. None of this detracted from a very enjoyable first cruise,since covid,made better by the number of guests on board, reported by the captain to be around 1400,had already booked the 16 day December Canarie cruise prior to boarding, and added 3 others whilst on board. Agree with Andrew no special or wow factor these days,but doable for us.
  9. Totally agree,bland,and repetitive,night after night,very poor.have included on the questionnaire
  10. Just of Aurora Baltic R307 16 nights,had 4 formal black tie nights,however puffer jackets zipped up,in the MDR was acceptable attire as where old jeans in Sindu on one of these occasions rules are there to be broken perhaps!
  11. Yes,they do;. 2 packages Commodores and Captains just off Aurora today, had the Commodore's 12 + 6. The 12 package was £329.00 and 6 being £175.00
  12. daiB I think Selbournes Suzette would be more palatable😝
  13. Have a good trip,we are on her in a few weeks,first time since the plague.If you would be so kind and if you have time will you find out if the ships laundry is operating,the white bag in the cabin one. Thank you
  14. What did you book? If saver then Pot Luck.
  15. Thank you, Greetings to you both as well Very difficult in your situation so few accessible cabins We are still, just about able to get away with a balcony cabin. There are plenty of cabins still available on this cruise Booked A deck aft near the lift, so straight down to the MDR Empty cabins both sides. Currently looking at private accessible tours in Stockholm, All other ports seem wheelchair doable from the ship. We have also booked the 16 night Canaries December cruise.
  16. Looking forward to R307,first time since Arcadia December 2019 5th time on board.
  17. Age 15 Grays Inn Road. for Sunday Times, Messenger for 10 months, took me all over London 57 years ago
  18. We do not dislike it, We always visit the Trafalgar Cemetery then just amble around but always finish up in the Chinese restaurant for lunch, not the most appealing looking place, but family run and they look after us very well.
  19. If that was for 4 people, I trust you had a starter and fish coarse before it, and a sweet then cheese coarse after.🤮 Having mine on Saturday
  20. Ehg Happy New Year Cannot help always travel steerage🙃
  21. Jane if you are at that stage, I highly reccomend Miriam Stoppard's book Quit Smoking Worked for me, at least 60 a day but not one in over 35 years. Be strong and good luck
  22. Morning ,noon and night, have also slept on it.Star gazing and cognac,whats not to like.
