  1. I'm guessing you have booked on Iona? This will be P&O's flagship when she enters service so should be really nice. As for drinks packages, P&O do sell all inclusive drinks packages at a cost of £39.99 pppd. I think it pretty much covers everything less high end champagne and whiskey etc. Alternatively, you are allowed to take up to One litre of your chosen drink each at the start of your cruise to drink in your cabin. Check their website for details. Have a great cruise! 😊
  2. My wife and I did our first P&O cruise just recently having previously sailed with RCI, Celebrity and Norwegian. To be honest we had a great time and have a 14 night Mediterranean cruise booked on Brittania next year purely because the prices are so much more reasonable. RCI have done a very bad thing to the British public that boils down to nothing more than pure greed. It's good now that there are so many other cruise lines to choose from with new ships offering much better value for money.
  3. My wife and I have booked on Allure for the TA back to the US. I know we have to fly to Barcelona to board the ship but, it's a newer, bigger ship that will have had a major refit to bring her in line with Symphony before we sail. We had a great deal as we booked early and managed to snag an all inclusive drinks package into the deal. I do think however it's absolutely disgusting of RCI to pull Indy out in 2020 when so many people have booked on her. They obviously need high capacity ships in Coco Cay every day to help pay for the upgrade of the island, of which most things that you want to do whilst there are very expensive!!! Greed, greed ,greed.
  4. I think to keep the majority of the UK cruisers happy and to keep the ships full, they will have to make a few changes. MSC made a bit of a mistake by not catering to the American market when they located their ships there. They had a lot of complaints regarding food and entertainment and as a consequence lost revenue. As I have not cruised with MSC yet (first cruise booked with them for next year, cant wait!) so I cannot personally comment on what their ships are like, only what I have heard or read. I suppose time will tell. 😊
  5. I have my first cruise booked with MSC next year on the Belissima. Very much looking forward to it and am very open minded about what to expect. Varietyis the spice of life as they say!
  6. I would imagine they will keep the Mediterranean flair that makes them different to other cruise lines. It'll probably be a few extra touches to please the British clientele such as tea and coffee making facilities in the staterooms and a few minor changes to entertainment and menu options. As for eating cottage pie in the Carribean, I'm pretty sure MSC won't be sailing there from Southampton!!!
