  1. Thank you for your review. Looking forward to sailing in Jan/Feb a b2b first time on Oasis. Fist time on a ship that size! Really excited!
  2. Booked on 30th January with 6 days in a hotel before it. Flying from the UK and final payment due at the end of this month. Really unsure what to do. On one hand I want to go but on the other will it actually be worth all the stress and hassle? If it actually goes ahead anyway. Oh for a crystal ball!
  3. Very similar set up in the Radisson at East Midlands airport yesterday. 3 guys there. We had been there back in July and our tests were wrongly/un labelled so no results. This time it all went smoothly and the results came through early this morning. Looking forward to being back on the Silhouette, had a great time in July going nowhere.
  4. I wasn't impressed with the Celebration either, but have been on the Discovery twice and really enjoyed it. Obviously still an older ship but much better. The entertainment was first class. Booked to go with them again at new year on the Explorer, which was cancelled last year.
  5. We had the same problem with Eurofins they had failed to scan the barcodes for all 3 of us. Really easy at Southampton apart from the 20 minutes waiting for the results to come through. Going back again to the same place in a couple of weeks so will be reminding them to make sure they have scanned everything correctly!

  8. On the 9th July cruise it was the second night and then the second last one. There were quite a lot of people dressed up including me and my friends. We certainly didn't feel we were in the minority.
  9. We were on the 9th July and did the same, enjoyed it so much we booked the 18th September too. It would be wonderful if we had good weather for it too, but it will be nice to have extra ports of call.
  10. Ha ha, having already done a seacation with Celebrity which was wonderful, I'm now prepared for the worst with Princess on Tuesday. Maybe things will have improved by then. Thanks for all the information.
  11. In my opinion the shops were pretty poor unless you wanted high end stuff like Effy. I usually manage to buy at least one wee trinket, but not this time. I never spent a penny in the shops. Nice handbags though, but I really don't need to add to my collection, so avoided them!
  12. Lewis? What happened to Manuel??? He was very funny.
  13. Same on the 9th Sailing too. But this time the bar outside the Theatre always seemed quiet.
  14. Not sure about alcohol free but certainly no pink gin sadly.
  15. Just off the ship and now waiting for the train home. Had a wonderful time, so good have booked again for September. The ship is beautiful and very very clean. Felt safer on there than back home going around town. They are constantly sanitising including the pencils they use for the quizzes. I did try to post earlier but the free wifi is not great. I wanted to let people know that if they had any problems with their PCR test results the system they have at the port is very slick. Eurofin had not properly labelled ours so could not give us the results. We left the Holiday Inn at 11.45am and walked to the port, the first person we met asked if we had PCR result and we said no so were shown into an area where we gave our details and got swabbed and were given a sticker to wear to show we were part of the 'untested" group. Through security and shown to a seperate area to await results. These came back about 20 minutes after the test. The lady who brough the results then processed us through check-in and then it was straight on to the ship. No need to go back and stand in the check-in queue. We were on board ship at 12.20pm greeted by a welcoming party from all departments. Loved the ship and all the space and ease of fifinding seats. This will change I suppose when more passengers are allowed back on board, but for now it's wonderful. To all of you still to go, have a great time. It's so good to be sailing again!
  16. Just woken up in the Holiday Inn and our beautiful ship us just outside my window. Just need the testing to go smoothly. There seems to be a lot of people leaving from the car park already.
  17. Thank you. Just getting ready to travel to Southampton and keeping my fingers crossed it all goes to plan tomorrow. I'll relax once I am finally on board. Enjoy your last day.
  18. I've just checked the website and on mine it says - you have no test results. So maybe 'waiting' is better. I hope you get it ok eventually. Cruising used to be so easy 😭
  19. Just to add - the guy on the phone said, "oh very sorry about this but it will be fine you will still get on your cruise, you will just get tested again at the port" Like it was no big issue! All easy for him to say! He said the results would take 20 minutes at the port.
  20. They phoned my friend and told her there was a problem with her and her husband's. She asked if mine was ok and they said no it was the same. They didn't actually call me so I got the number off my friend and called them. I told the guy on the phone about not having the QR codes scanned and it seemed to be an 'oh right' moment as if ' oh that explains it' kind of thing, but maybe that's just me reading that into it.
  21. I think but don't know for sure that the problem might be that they didn't scan our QR codes. They told us today that they couldn't match our appointment to the barcodes on the test. I went with my 2 friends and there was only the 3 of us, so no rushed job. The 3 people there were very friendy and chatty and seemed as if they knew what they were doing.
  22. It seems Eurofins have messed up again. There is no barcode against our booking so they cannot connect the test to our names (or something like that) So we now need to get retested at the Port on Friday. To say I am raging is an understatement!
  23. Thanks to everyone giving their time to answer our questions and tell us about life onboard. I have a question to add. Are the prices on board in Sterling or Dollars and the casino slots if they take notes which are they? (ok that's 2 questions) Many thanks and enjoy your cruise.
