  1. I really like seeing different photos of the same thing / same place at different times of year, in different weathers and different lights. Really enjoyable thread.
  2. We've sailed pretty much all the main lines but we have radiated to Princess, they seem to do things effortlessly well, freedom dining is a good example. The new all in pricing is really good too. The staff are just so well trained, friendly and super efficient. Princess just do things right if that makes sense.
  3. I'm beginning to forget there was ever a time we weren't in lockdown!
  4. I thought we were in lockdown and should be staying home?? Aurora was in Portsmouth yesterday for a supply stop.
  5. For some reason I can't stay logged in, everyday I go on Cruise critic from my PC and everyday I have to log in, its not the end of the world - just quite frustrating!
  6. We really like the Atlantic Spa on Fort Lauderdale beach. We find its a central location for bars, restaurants and shops along the front, not too far for a bit of shopping at the Galleria or the other way to Las Olas. It's an older style hotel but the rooms are spacious, there is a nice bar and restaurant and the staff lovely.
  7. The Sapphire is one of our favourites, we really like the size being that bit smaller and the restaurants are divided up into smaller venues with different identities which was lovely. A lot of other people say to go for the smaller ships for Alaska. At the moment I'd just be grateful to get on a ship!!!
  8. I also just get squares - click 'Boards' again it reloads and I get the blue dots but it always logs me out!! Another change for the sake of change that has messed things up!!
  9. We call her the Elephant Princess!!!
  10. Brilliant P for Portsmouth - love it!
  11. I could well have been cruising with the entire cast of Hollyoaks, anyone who has been on Love Island, TOWIE, Geordie Shore or any other 'reality' show and wouldn't have had a clue!
  12. We've just had ours for our cancelled Sept cruise to the Fjords 😞 You can apply for the refund on line, if you go to TUI's cruise home page - right at the top there's a Coronavirus section marked with a black explanation mark - there's a refund claim form in there.
  13. Portsmouth gets a few ships in but not regularly. Saga, CMV, Phoenix Reisen, Paul Gauguin and last year a few calls from Viking. There's a lot in Portsmouth and a great base but the port is just a bit far out from public transport and things to see, nothing would be walkable from the ship.
  14. Emma Cruises has posted a video about them returning to RCI and Celebrity, not sure myself why RCI want 2 small 20+ year old ships - especially a the moment! It all looks a bit bleak..
