  1. Hi everyone. I would take the train into town. The Motorway (freeway) you use to get from Greenock into Glasgow can be a nightmare with congestion, particularly after the airport. One accident or breakdown causes havoc. The HOHO is a good option as suggested, and there is a Metro which essentially does a circle around the city. Its a good and cheap way to get around and is safe. http://www.spt.co.uk/ If you're into Art / Architecture there are some amazing galleries and buildings. https://www.glasgowlife.org.uk/museums Check Tripadvisor for specific ratings. Last bit of advice. Bring a brolly! Have a great trip. David
  2. We were in 8070 a month ago, and one night had to go at full speed all night to outrun a storm, missing a port on the way. Zero vibration. A little early morning ‘set up’ noise from Windows cafe but nothing intrusive. Have a great trip. David
  3. uktog, there is a lounge at City you could use depending on your layover. From recall I think its £35 pp. It's situated landside at the Jet Centre about 5 min drive away and there is a free shuttle. This isn't a good airport for a long layover if you're familiar with it as its cramped and the retail isn't that good, so not much to do. We haven't used the lounge but a friend of mine said it was good. Just an option for you if you plan to raid the fridge 🍸😉
  4. Great to read this Phil, and so glad you are feeling like a valued customer again and that the standards are back up there. Ive been flat out since getting back but will review our recent South American trip this week. Hope you have a lovely holiday. Welcome home. David
  5. Hi everyone. We are just back yesterday after a couple of weeks onboard Pursuit. Cabin was kept spotless, service in restaurants and bars top notch, and there are lots of smiles and good mornings etc from the crew. I did manage to speak to some senior staff (that we knew from quest and journey) and they all admitted that they did have many teething problems. The initial crew plan apparently was to have a rough 50/50 split of new recruits and old hands from the other ships, however that didnt pan out. The split was more like 80/20 (20% being the experienced AZ crew). I didnt get a full explanation why this was, but they did admit that this had a negative effect during the initial few months. Whilst i have no doubt there were issues as reported, im pleased to say we didnt experience anything negative that was a fault of the cruise line or its crew. David
