  1. It would be nice if P&O would take a group of photos for each variation of cabin onboard giving the waiting cruisers some view of what they might expect. It would be a treat for all the eager passengers to get a glimpse of the staterooms as they would have by now if it had sailed. Photographers abound on ships get one to go around for a day and then post them online. Simple to do, good PR.
  2. Sorry if this has been posted before. There is a documentary on the QE2 hotel conversion this coming Friday 24th on channel 5 at 9.00 PM. “QE2 The worlds most luxurious hotel” first hour long episode of three.
  3. I’m sure the travel insurers will write in a disclaimer on policies to not cover future Pandemics or charge a premium on a policy to cover Pandemics.
  4. We wouldn’t be talking about this unless a contagious virus caught out EVERY country in the world starting from China. The good thing is China looks like it is over the hill with few cases reported daily unless they have recently arrived from abroad.. China is the model..Steep curve..Flattening out..then decreasing. If you go on every countries stastics the curve is the same. The guarantees today given to my children have saved their homes ..their lives. Let’s Pull Together It’s going to get lot worse. Not because of a political party...A little bug.
  5. Politics..Politics this is a cruise forum.....
  6. We used to travel as a couple on Cunard for a few cruises 25th Anniversary on QM2 then our son was diagnosed with heart failure and was very ill last year. My son can’t fly so we booked a P&O cruise last year. Four cruises later trying to give him more experiences to look for he is doing well....His favourite sitting with Marco Pierre White for 2 hours eating and chatting to him. We’ve just cancelled Brittania 7 nights 19 April but still have April 2021 on Iona rear suite to look forward to. We are worried...time will tell..we are in isolation now.
  7. Where are all of P&O s ships going to layup while riding out this Virus..Also the vast numbers of other ships.
  8. We have used these deals on most of our P&O cruises for us and our disabled adult son. on two cruises there was a £1 deal for 3rd and 4th passengers our last was with the £99 for 3rd and 4th passengers all for selected cruises. Our last cruise 12 nets worked out for a balcony £52 per night per person. I’m sure these deals apply to younger passengers as well. The £1 deals surfaced around February this year. Also used on a suite booking to the Fjords.
  9. There are 95 conservatory mini suites on Iona with over 200 passengers, so would be a push with full suite guests for breakfast in the Epicurean. We looked at the mini suite on our last trip to the Northern lights Arcadia but the extra £2000 with no real extra benefits apart from the space I thought was not worth it. Had a disabled suite on Brittania which was excellent.
  10. The Limelight Club does sell out pre cruise for certain entertainers Colsers, look at who’s on and book who you would like to see. It is a whole night of food and entertainment different than anything onboard ..
  11. You are paying for the more intimate atmosphere of a small venue..with a lovely 3 course menu...Gareth Gates was great but it’s more than that for a few quid you can have a different night out... I’ve been lucky to live close to the Lakeside Country Club (google it) in its heyday had all the current Caberet acts. This a very good nod to it...we enjoyed it immensely...Your on holiday!
  12. Excellent jh1809...did make me giggle.
  13. We won’t book Amsterdam on P&O strangely unless from IJmuiden as the shuttles are free and unlimited as against Rotterdam tour/Shuttles are £40 per person...for us £120 for one trip. Rotterdam should also be a free shuttle service to Amsterdam in my opinion.
