    Cool Cruiser
  1. We are on the Spirit on 7thOctober 2017 and La Dame was fully booked for every day within minutes of reservayions opening. We are wait listed for one night and it is currently showing availability for 1 on most nights.The cost has increased to 60$.
  2. We used them to transfer from Miami airport to Fort Lauderdale hotel and they were excellent. Met us outside the baggage claim no problem. Cost was $100 Chris and Pam
  3. Hi We have booked the following for our cruise in October, recommended on Cruise Criticsl Walter Mena contact@bluriviera.fr His charge is 80€
  4. Hi Keith We have really enjoyed tyour posts and your blog. We board the Spirit on 31st.March, our first time with Silversea and as a result of reading your posts we now have a real feel of the ship. Once again many thanks Chris and Pam
  5. Thank you all for the advice which has been very helpful
  6. We will be getting off the Spirit in April 2016 and will be flying to New York same day. Anyone any idea what time the earliest flight would be safe to book.
  7. So did we on the Navigator in April Talented artists who were very professional:)
  8. We cruised with Regent, Barcelona to Mone Carlo on the Mariner last September having been on the Seabourn Quest the previous two years. in our opinion, Seabourn was better for the design and size of ship and excellence of service. Entertainment we felt was slightly better on the Quest Regent food was slightly better although that was marginal. We feel that Regents destinations are better. Quality of tours was about the same but of course some not all are included in Regents price Seabourn suites are better particually the bathrooms. Generally we felt Seabourn to be a more intimate an welcoming experience although if we had not done them first we would havebeen more than satisfied with Regent. Chris and Pam
  9. We have done many Cunard transatlantics originally on QE2 and latterly on QM2 There is no comparison with Seabourn. the accomodation, dining and general service on Cunard are very poor now.
  10. I have to concur with the doubts expessed. I have done the reverse journey Southampton to Gatwick and there is little or no space for luggage. If a car is out of the question then try National Express. http://www.nationalexpress.co.uk. depending on time the fare for two is £36.00 and the luggage is loaded on the coach, no lugging around. Im not sure of times but really is a better option.
  11. We would be grateful if you wuld keep posting. We are on the Mariner, Barcelona to Mone Carlo 6th.September and are really interested to know what we can expect having previously cruised with Cunard and Seabourn.
  12. Whilst not on the cunard list, the Casablanca hotel in West 43rd street is excellent. Small boutiqe type close to Times Sqare. Well worth considering.
  13. I agree with you totally. I think that Cunard management lacks imagination and is to intent on dumming a fine brand down.
  14. Yes we were there having lunch having just boarded the Quest. A wonderful display which was followed by a wonderful cruise.
  15. Very well put I agree totally This constant debate is really about elements in western society who enjoy breaking the rules.
