    No and No.  I am expecting a formal night though.


    I have not received an email yet, and finding the cabin number was not straightforward, tickets etc available 3 weeks beforehand so May get more information then. 


    Please keep us informed when you get more info, wish P&o would email about booking extras and what entertainment is available just to add to the anticipation it’s all part of looking forward to the cruise 😀

    Just checked the personaliser and our stateroom has been allocated today, 24 days before sailing.


    Booked an HA grade Balcony and that’s exactly what we got.  Cabins above and below so very happy 😀

    Hi does your vp say anything about a formal night and can you book speciality restaurants?😀

    Hi that’s fab news we just paid our balance yesterday and our vp says our cabin can be allocated 21 days before starting to get excited now 😳👍

  4. Hi we had a Cunard staycation booked then 1night in Southampton then a P&O Iona staycation booked but we received a phone call from Carnival corporation saying we will have to cancel one of them so now we have August 7 nights on Iona, so B2B not allowed.

    16°C cloudy with light rain.

    We had a run out to the lakes and went over Kirkstone Pass.




    Lovely photos we love the Lake District too, we had an afternoon out yesterday first time since lockdown coffee and cake in a cafe very nice but felt anxious at being so close to strangers hopefully things will get better as we come more out of  the restrictions 🙏

    I think we went of track.  A post was made about travellers turning up to a flight without the correct proof of negative test.  

    Currently for the Seacations this summer, we are only required to turn up with proof of vaccine.  Any tests P&O would like us to take will be provided at the port free of charge.


    However, they do state whilst not required, that we do test regularly at home as per Government guidance and not travel to the terminal if positive.  


    I was just saying I think to use NHS LFT’s was acceptable, as we should be doing it anyway, you can just change your schedule to do one the day you are travelling to Southampton.


    But I don’t believe NHS PCR’s should be used for the purpose of travel. 



    Hi have you had your cabin allocated yet?

  7. I remember one evening on QM2 an American gentleman came to the restaurant with no jacket or tie and was creating quite a bit of noise about wanting to eat in the dining room whether he had a jacket or not eventually a waiter was sent to collect a jacket and tie for the gentleman to wear which surprisingly he did and was then allowed to dine, rules are rules if you don’t like them then go elsewhere to dine he really did make a fool of himself and was known to other passengers as (the jacket)

    So do I, but I hope not. I and many others have found this popular thread, as the number of posts prove, a lifeline over the last 14 months or so, and even though cruising is begining to return I think it will still be needed. We have come to know each other in a different way. As Sharon says there are other places to post however, this thread has become our own little 'family' group and many still find it helpful and very easy to just pop into while reading other  P&O threads. 


    Absolutely agree it feels like a friendly family group on here and it won’t feel the same now posting on a different thread and has definitely been a lifeline to many including me.🤗

    Pauline is dressed up every night on board and gets compliments from other ladies.

    Get dressed up as much as you like Lindy and enjoy yourself.

    I hope your daughters appointment at the Eye Infirmary went well.



    Good morning Graham thanks for asking but daughters eye appointment didn’t go too well steroid drops have not worked so she’s now prescribed oral steroids so fingers crossed they will work🤞🏻Getting dressed up every night and going for dinner is one of the highlights of our cruises can’t wait, and Pauline looks so glamorous and immaculate even on your beach walks have a good day👍Lindy

    My formal trousers have shrunk !  Have to try and get some timber off before my cruise in August.

    Yes us too,  have to make some room for all that delicious food we have to eat.

    That is strange because when you ring they say you should be travelling in the next 30 days which implies a time limit although it could be done so the people who need it get it first.

    Yes I thought it would have had the same expiration date as is on the one we can download from the NHS app, but I’m happy there is no expiration date so. Looks like this one will suffice for all my cruises this year 👍

    It is good Kalos that they are checking your heart.

    Hopefully everything is good and maybe they might have further treatments to improve your heart function.

    Good luck mate.

    I have to go to the eye hospital today.

    10°C and sunny this morning.



    Hope your hospital appointment goes ok Graham you might bump into my daughter she is there at 1 pm today
