  1. BBC is my go to sailaway drink. Also partial to a Tropical Manhattan and Cucumber Martini in the evenings. If you find yourself a good bartender the possibilities are not limited to the drinks menu in front of you.
  2. Hello, I am also a Gibraltar local and ollienbertsmum has got it pretty much spot on! I have had a good experience at both The Rock Hotel and The Caleta Hotel for afternoon tea so either is a decent shout. I would recommend the Caleta Hotel just for the gorgeous beach views! If you are interested in sitting near boats, there is an area called Queensway Quay that has several lovely restaurants for afternoon tea, including The Lounge and The Waterfront. All these establishments I've mentioned do have facebook pages so I would drop them a message a month or two before you head on over here to make a reservation. Enjoy your trip. Rachel
  3. Hi Mike, Gibraltarian local here! Please do visit the post office at 104 Main Street, I am sure they have coins sets and stamps for you to purchase from the philatelic shop. You can't miss it, big red British post box outside the front door. Around a 10/15 minute walk from the port. If you just want 'normal' everyday coins, visit any shop in Main Street, pay in cash and ask politely for your change in Gibraltar pounds. Cant imagine that would be a problem whatsoever. Have a wonderful trip!
  4. Thank you for an excellent review. Loved living vicariously through your family! Hope the post cruise depression doesn’t hit too hard :) Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. I’m thinking of sailing Anthem or Allure summer 2020. Does anyone know what itineraries either one will likely follow? I just did a western med this summer on Symphony so don’t want to repeat the exact same ports again in 2020. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

  9. Joe thank you so much for this review, I really enjoyed reading each time you posted and I hope you had a brilliant time. Hope the post cruise blues aren’t too bad for you. Still getting through mine a month later! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  10. Been searching since waiting in the airport on our way home. At the moment we are looking at Symphony (again!) for summer 2019 or Anthem Christmas 2019. No doubt there will be another live report whenever my next cruise may be :) Sent from my iPhone using Forums

  14. You are welcome! I hope you have a great time in 10 weeks. I miss it already. The page is called Napoli Food Porn. I could spend hours just looking at all the pictures. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  15. Thank you for this recommendation. I had this at the Schooner Bar and it was probably my favourite drink the entire cruise. Hope you have a blast in September. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
