  1. On Ventura last week the semi-final was screened in Havana on big screen/all the tv screens and also in Exchange. Very busy and a great atmosphere ebven though the ship was alongside in Cherbourg. There was coffee/tea supplied and also breakfast barms, plus the bars were open too.
  2. We were also on the 28/7 sailing from Southampton. We sailed with Celebrity in the Med last year on a fly- cruise and had a great time We have also sailed with P&O when there have been almost 1000 U18's on board The one point that seems to have escaped most people is that there was always spaces at the bars/shows etc In my opinion, some of the behaviour of the adults was as bad as the comments regarding that of children/teens; especially in regard to the reserving of sunbeds for hours on end whilst going ashore in the meantime. This was one of the main reasons that the lawned areas were used for sunbathing etc. With 3000 pax there is nowhere near enough sunbeds to cope. My son was also questioned/commented to on several occasions as to whether he was old enough to drink alcohol when ordering at the bar! Who do these people think they are? I don't think that the comments regarding "feral" children are in any way justified The cruise had a great vibe on board, and we really enjoyed it
  3. We booked an FV on S Class for the three of us( inc 18yo) First time in that type of cabin but it seems to give us seperate cabins within a cabin plus a large lounge area. Square footage the same as a Royal Suite. As an earlier poster said there are only 4 FV on S class and deck 8 have slightly larger balconies. Regarding booking dates we booked ours almost a year in advance for the three of us (5 berth cabin) for a Summer cruise which is now completely sold out
  4. Help appreciated please to find out drinks prices on board; eg standard bottle beers, spirit measures etc We have a soft drinks package and are looking at the maths as to whether to upgrade to an alcohol package for our 18yo I can't remember the prices from last year and I think UK sailings normally include the gratuity on the menu price, so anyone who has info from this recently would be helpful
  5. The "duty-free" store is usually sealed by Customs. Happened to us on 10 day Constellation Venice-Venice last year. We didn't leave the EU but as we had package for drinks we were not charged any extra vat.
  6. Drinks packages are discounted on my CP, such that it's actually cheaper at the moment to purchase a Classic alcohol package than it is to upgrade from a non-alcoholic one (£36.34 pd vs £37.88 pd) Anyone know the onboard prices please?
  7. We have sailed from Southampton with P&O and they always try to include Gibraltar as a stop. Apart from the bonus of cheap duty-free for the passengers, it also means that the ship can sell its own "duty-free" stock as it has left the EU at some point during the cruise. We are on Silhouette this year and our cruise conveniently includes a stop in Gib. Also, something to be aware of. We did a Venice- Venice cruise on Constellation last year. Italian Customs sealed the onboard "duty-free" shop for the duration of the cruise because the ship only did EU ports.
