  1. Yes. We will have to cancel the coach. So many businesses affected.
  2. The best thing for us all to do is sit tight and wait for them to cancel us. Our cruise is supposed to be next month. We have three more booked. The next after April's is in June. Would be surprised if that goes ahead... I had made my mind up to have the cash rather than FCC anyway. Will spend the money on the garden instead. Looks like we will be sitting out there a lot this year!
  3. We have three booked for this year, the first being on Azura on 19th April. Have no plans whatsoever of cancelling and really looking forward to them. If P and O decide to cancel us for any reason we would just book for later in the year.
  4. We will be on this cruise too. It is our first cruise on Azura - the only P and O ship we haven't been on yet. Hopefully we will it at its best!
  5. Thoroughly enjoyed rreading this review. We were the September Aurora USA and Canada ports and like yourselves we missed Corner Brook - Hurricane Dorian put paid to that! We also missed Sydney due to fog so it was interesting to see what we had missed! Loved seeing the photos to accompany the review. Many thanks!
  6. We have cruised on both in the last few months. They are both traditional style ships which we love. We found that Aurora had the edge for entertainment although Arcadia seemed to have more bars to relax in. Aurora had a far better buffet but MDRs were on a par with each other. We like the Glasshouse and Beachouse as alternative dining venues on Aurora. Arcadia didn't have as many choices. I would be happy to choose either for future cruises but for longer cruises would prefer Aurora. These views are purely personal and no doubt others will think otherwise.
  7. Yes, Annie. We were really pleased that the Captain could update us as to the paasenger's condition. We saw quite a few ambulances meet the ship during the cruise.
  8. Not been on a suite on there but in our cabin there were no bedside lights. We had to have spotlights on to read. No good if one person wants to sleep. I read by the light of my phone...
  9. >Ha ha. Weird! I edited my own post but it came up with yours! No idea how that could even happen?
  10. We came off Arcadia on August 3rd and the Ents Manager was called Elaine. We found her to be very good. It was indeed Captain Cook!
  11. We are totally won over to using the coach service now. We always stayed overnight near the port but then did the maths and even if we didn't get free coach it still work out cheaper. When you factor in hotel charges, fuel, meals etc it soon adds up. We travelled the first weekend of the school holidays recently and the coach driver learned of an accident on the motorway and diverted. We were still on time. The added bonuses are that the coach driver loads your cases and that's the last you see of them until you are in your cabin. Also the ship will always wait for the coach.
  12. Wow! We were on Arcadia mid July and we had turn down service on first night. We did have the best steward we had ever had so maybe he went above and beyond.
  13. These are amazing prices! Wish we could take advantage but already have three booked between now and June... Just can't fit another one in.
