  1. We have done the Cookery Club this was good different cuisine different sea days. We have also dine gin tasting and wine tasting if you like that kind of thing. Movies are shown and sometime performances are put on in the theatre in the afternoon. The hydrotherapy suite is also a treat . We have also done a behind the scene tours of the Galley on Ventura not sure if this available but if it is do go really interesting then you have lunch served afterwards. There was also a food festival showcasing the speciality restaurants where you can try small samples
  2. We had booked Azura for April 2021 but was cancelled by P&O. Ironically this was a replacement for another cruise cancelled. So next cruise August 2021. Hopefully will go ahead need a holiday as we have both have worked all through this pandemic. My husband takes a weekly test for his work and is now doing the instant test with a result in five minutes. Maybe this might be used for future cruises. Who knows
  3. Not too sure, first time to the Baltics for us as well. But you know make the best of it considering what we have been through this year. We went to Norway in August one year really good weather apart from Bergen which rained so you can never predict but go and enjoy !! Cruises are well worth doing anytime of the year 😃
  4. The standard balcony is great plenty of space for two. We stayed in C510 But with having a growing teenager we decided to go for the superior for the double sofa bed and the privacy of the curtain.We stayed in A327 We like the suite as he has got older it has more privacy as the room is divided by the wardrobes .Suite number C737. I see you have the price for the Limelight we saw Boyzlife really good show ,it was also a formal night so nice to dress up.
  5. Hi We have just booked the Baltics on Britannia for August 2022. Love this ship. Completely different to Ventura which we have previously sailed on. Lots to do Limelight Club - nice intimate dinner with show. Cookery Club this is quite fun cook then eat. The Crow's Nest love this bar chill out and listen to the pianist. Hydrotherapy suite great for relaxation. The Sunset Bar at the back of the ship great view when you are doing a sail away. The kids club my son enjoyed but by 2022 he will be too old but he is looking forward to experi
  6. We were in Somerset last week and decided to drive down to Weymouth. There was a local boat company that runs all year round and takes you to different sites including viewing ships that are docked. The three of us were on the boat with just one other couple as only five allowed due to social distancing. We were five miles from the ships and had a really good view . Seven ships in total including Britannia. It was quite eerie seeing them and also very sad, they should be on their travels with people enjoying themselves. We
  7. Our staycation is a bit different going tomorrow. My husband, son and I are staying in a luxury lodge with hot tub on a small holding farm in Somerset. We could not be more socially distanced from people as only two lodges there. Booked in for a meal at the local pub five minutes walk away lots of outdoor seating areas. Off to Weymouth on Tuesday to see the ships. Wednesday off to Bristol for the SS Great Britain. Thursday off to Devon. Friday visiting Fleet Air Museum Then finishing off on Saturday at local vineyard on 10 mil
  8. Just received an email from P&O confirming that Oceana will be leaving their fleet this week. Bit gutted never got to go on her.
  9. We had a suite on Ventura at the back of the ship. The balcony was huge with dining table outside and sunbeds. The suite itself was ok but the walk in wardrobe you could not really get in because of the position of the door. Also we found that when the sofabed was made up it was almost touching our bed and quite awkward to get round. Apart from that it was nice and had all the perks of a suite. We also had a suite on Britannia at the back again, this was so spacious plenty of space including wardrobe space felt like two rooms.Bathro
  10. Yes cruises now cancelled until October 15th 2020 just received an email form P&O
  11. Maybe so I sympathise that you too have had to cancel your cruise. But none of us can predict what will happen so in the mean time I will continue with the belief that things will come good again. I will deal with insurance problems if they should arise and I will of course adhere to keep myself and family safe but no-one knows we have to take every day a day at a time. If P&O advises we cannot sail then so be it but again your views are your own and mine are mine so think this should be now be put to bed as it seems we will never agree . I cannot wait un
  12. Hi Zapp99 Very true but there will only be three of us as we are travelling hopefully on August 1st so we won't have Gary😟. Maybe do a Take That collaboration with the Captain 😁
  13. Majortom That is your opinion this post was what I was looking forward to and you have tried in everyway to keep knocking me down with my hopes and dreams. I have had to cancel three cruises this year because of this pandemic including Iona. And as I said it will not stop getting on Iona or the two other cruises I have booked for next year all which are suites as I work hard for my holidays as does my husband. So if senior management does not require my money I would like them to let me know not being given this information from third parties.
  14. Majortom This may be true . But let us have some kind of belief it will happen. Sometimes we don't want to need to know who said what and when. But would like to look forward.to our dreams even if they might not come true straight away.
  15. As I said when Iona is ready I will be get on as soon as I can. I understand people have their views as to when the ship will be ready. But sometimes it's nice to look forward to brighter times rather than give negatives on bleak times. Let's look forward to future cruising!
