  1. We are staying on the QE2 for one night prior to our cruise, which incidentally is permanently moored at the cruise terminal. mklions
  2. I I probably did get the £199 deal but with the added emirates flights the balcony cost came in at £699 per person. With only a £50 discount for the three children. Still I think it’s a great price for a weeks balcony cruise. mklions.
  3. Just booked yesterday for a week sailing on the Jewel in January around the Emirates. We are travelling in a party of six adults and three children. Just looked online at our booking and see the ultimate drinks package is £41.80 per person per day. Multiplied by six adults and then by seven nights this is a whopping £1,755.60 for our party.! My question is will the online/ booking price likely to drop nearer the date? Or will it be better to book when we board? Thanks in advance for all your responses. Mklions.
  4. Thank you HGC, It maybe worth adding to your "tips" spreadsheet that you can have dinner served in your cabin on any evening from the MDR menu. Thats a pretty good tip IMO. Mklions.
  5. Fantastic, thanks for that! We are fortunate enough to have a cc suite would the dinner be served course by course by our butler? That would be the icing on the cake! Mklions.
  6. Hi all, We are sailing Lisbon to Rio on the Pursuit in November and sometimes (as on other cruises) we like to chill out and have dinner selected from the main dinning room menu served to our cabin or even on our balcony, is this an option on Azamara? Kind regards, Mklions..
  7. Thanks Lucy, The balcony hot tub sounds great! Do you have to fill it each day and can you set the temperature?
  8. Hi Lucy, we have also booked the royal suite on the Explorer 2 sailing out late August. how did you find the cabin?, and can you give me any helpful advice on the added benefits of a suite. Thanks in advance. mklions
  9. I am not sure how buying our own would work to well, as we do not tend to drink in the cabin and carrying a bottle of gin from bar to restaurant to bar each night would be looked upon very strange indeed! Mklions
  10. A gin cocktail maybe the answer then. Shame really because I am sure if you are a whiskey drinker the range would be much greater than the option of two.
  11. Hi All, We will be sailing on the Ovation in a couple of week time and wondered if they have a good assortment of Gins. In the UK at the moment Gins are vey much in vogue with most pubs and bars selling a large range of different flavours and types. My wife likes the Gordon's Pink Gin and the new Beefeater Blood Orange Gin) and I wondered if Seabourn have much of a selection on their ships? Bottoms up! Mklions.
  12. Thank you all for your responses. i will (excuse the pun) take on board your comments and try to book a table as soon as we embark,. I am also looking forward to dinning in the evening at the alfresco restaurant Land and Sea which on our last Seabourn cruise on the Encore was not available at the time. thanks again. Mklions
  13. Hi All, Today we booked our next cruise,whoopee! on 27th April ( 24 days time) sailing on Ovation. Athens to Barcelona ( 8 days) Just logged into our Seabourn account for the first time to book the Thomas Keller restaurant only to find out that there are no available tables left for the whole cruise!! Is this normal? Really disappointed as we were looking forward to dining in this restaurant. Kind Regards, Mklions..
  14. I thought the discovery in in the far east in Feb? Mklions..
  15. We are flying Thomson airways ( Dreamliner) from Birmingham to Langkawi in January to cruise on Discovery1. Being a bonded flight ( only put on for the cruise passengers) will our luggage go straight to the ship or will we need to collect it from the airport in Langkawi Thanks
