  1. Limoux said We will be in an electric car and looking for parking. Anyone have ideas? We could use CPS but they do not have charging points. Are there charging points in a local car park for after the cruise. Thanks in advance. There is one at the Park and ride, by the COVID test centre W4 Tipner Lane, Virgin Voyages are using presently shows as free to use. Get down early, charge car, Take test, return to Portsmouth Port to park, job done 😁 https://www.portsmouth.gov.uk/services/parking-roads-and-travel/travel/electric-charge-points/
  2. Agree, Taxi always less stress once paid (lol) P&R fare of £4 includes up to five passengers https://parkandride.portsmouth.gov.uk/maps.shtml#citycentre
  3. I would say £7 plus tip. so Bus P&R 3 every 30mins at £4 , 9mins journey from Civic offices, seems cheapest option or Stand D City shops, Route 8/or 20 with 8 stops and with short walk.alternative.
  4. For those not driving and not wishing a Taxi The PR 3 (Park& Ride 3) from Civic Offices driver can issue a ticket on the bus £4 , however other PR services tickets unavailable from driver only available at the Park & Ride. ( Silly system) . Route 8 and Route 20 bus services from City Shops South Stand D (8 stops) getting off at Mountbatten Centre, Stamshore and a 7 minute walk.

  12. I am sure that NCL had a topless sun deck area on Epic , but believe that policy has now changed.
  13. I agree with you above, however my 6 nights (7days) on P&O although refused, as booked through the BLC card scheme has been shown as £30 declined. 7days according to Carnival shareholder obc should be £60 but not according to P&O ? Although the BLC discount is appreciated, and is open to all Blue Light employees and ex, as is the Military Discount scheme, run by same company. It appears that the shareholders in the UK are being disadvantaged. I can understand if the offers were only to shareholders, but they are not.
  14. I would say that is 7days as you are on board for 7 days but 6 nights so one should receive shareholders benefit for 7 days if counting days . or Shareholders benefit for 6 nights. If counting nights. It does make a difference
  15. The Carnival website shows shareholder discount in days, where as UK have started showing nights. This does make a difference as you can be onboard for 7 days but only 6 nights. Which can double the amount of shareholders benefit. https://www.carnivalcorp.com/static-files/50351a91-4dc0-4f6b-bfec-684647e6129f

All other fares types are currently combinable with shareholder benefits. Sharholder benefits need to be applied no later than three weeks prior to sail date. Employees, travel agents cruising at travel agent rates, tour conductors or anyone travelling on a staff red

  19. They do seem to change the goal posts on whim for UK bookings.

  21.
