  1. I find that carefully spinning round just once at the end of the shower washes away the last suds! Have a lovely cruise ⚓️
  2. The deluxe balcony cabins have a bath with the shower over. It’s still a shower curtain but it’s just a little bit further away from your body than a curved shower cubicle
  3. You’ve just made me chuckle on a dark, wet late-summer morning. Thank you!
  4. Have a lovely cruise, it looks amazing ⚓️ Here’s to clear skies and smooth seas 🍸
  5. We’ve been considering this cruise as it coincides with my birthday and our wedding anniversary. It didn’t cross my mind that it might have been chartered. How do we find out if it has?
  6. I’ve taken the battery operated tea lights before when I’ve cruised with my mum. She doesn’t like sleeping in total darkness (unlike me). I love the idea of a string of fairy lights draped around the picture frame, think I’m going to pinch that one 😍 I drink de caff tea and take a huge supply with me. Learnt my lesson when once I didn’t take enough with me and I had run out half way through the cruise. I took some of the tea bags from the buffet for use in my cabin and literally had a strip tore off me from a crew member about it. Oh and I also always pack some vitamin C!
  7. What a lovely review, thank you for posting and I’m so glad that you enjoyed the cruise. I’ve stayed in cabin 4040 on QE, just a few up from you (classified as restricted view because it is metal fronted) and the balcony size is lovely and big 😀 I’m also pleased that you enjoyed your British Isles itinerary. I’m English, Liverpool is the nearest port to my home and I’m in two minds about cruising around my home country. I’d certainly know the culture! Thank you again
  8. Ah that’ll teach me to read posts properly in future! 🤦🏼‍♀️ You’re booking a suite, how lovely! Enjoy 😎
  9. I agree that in the morning the sofa bed restricts access to the balcony, on about the third day of our cruise we discovered that we could easily fold it back into a sofa ourselves. Then when we went for breakfast we folded it out again so that the bed could be made up by our steward!
  10. I’ve stayed in a superior deluxe cabin on Ventura (Azura’s sister ship) with my mum and eldest son who was 20 at the time. The sofa bed is huge and very comfy, in fact I preferred it to the single bed!
  11. Take a posh picnic, something fun to drink, sit back, relax and enjoy! We travel from Lancashire on the cruise coach and have always had a pleasant journey both there and back. We consider it a stress free start to our holiday.
  12. Wishing you a safe journey home today with no delays
  13. I’m following along with interest as I should have been on this cruise but had to cancel. Glad that things are going well now that you have settled in on the ship after your journey there. Hubby and I would have been in an inside cabin too and we’d only use it for sleeping too. Please keep on writing if you can :) Wishing you smooth seas.
  14. From Burtonwood it’s around 8am so I would presume that Manchester would be a similar time
  15. You’ll have no problem in the dining room if you are able to wait for a few minutes in the evening. We ate there at breakfast and lunch too and were always seated immediately. No problems in the buffet either, don’t worry you’ll be fine! You sound like you want the holiday that we had last year, just the two of you.
