    CURRENT CRUISE DIRECTORS

    P&O use a number of agencies and some of the agencies have a number of acts that are used by P&O. Some have been appearing for many years with P&O and other Carnival cruise ships leaving Southampton. We have seen many acts on P&O that we have also seen on Princess and Cunard.

    Yes that is the Entertainment Managers job to report back to Head Office which acts were good or those that were not well received and depending on his report is whether Head Office book them again.

    CURRENT CRUISE DIRECTORS

    You may well have been told that by John Bartram but think he might have meant that the Entertainment Managers have no control who is booked on cruises. It is all done and arranged by P&O at head office and I can assure you they would not book anyone without having them vetted before.

    Sea Screen on Azura

    Azura is plenty big enough to find a quiet spot to sunbathe and snooze without having the sea screen impacting on you.

    Obc

    Perhaps so but not everybody drives and the best in price terms is very often coach transfer.

    They might be put forward by their agents but they would not be booked "blindly" without being checked by somebody at head office in Southampton if its the first time they have appeared on P&O.

    Obc

    Sometimes you dont get any OBC in inside cabins even on Select fares it does vary throughout the time on sale with differing offers. You might get OBC later on but the price of the cruise will have gone up.

    How fast is the WiFi on Queen Mary 2?

    In Oct/Nov at best it was awful and majority of times could not even get an internet connection and when asking at Internet desk in Cunard Connexions the lady didnt want to know and wasnt interested all she said it was my settings on my PC. Which it wasnt.

    P & O Revised Dress/Alcohol Code

    Dont think it is aimed at football shirts directly except for evenings in MDR. I think there became a period where people were wearing t-shirts with offensive or what can be deemed offensive on their t-shirts and fancy dress that also could be sen as offensive. We were on Azura one night eating in Sindhu when a group of women walked past and one was wearing a fancy dress outfit of a male penis, obviously a hen party.

    P & O Revised Dress/Alcohol Code

    No it means anything displayed that can be of an offensive nature you will be ok with souvenir t-shirts.

    Currency Areas

    Reminds me of an incident in Bergen when we docked on a Sunday and it was early and very few shops/restaurants were open at the time and a couple off the ship were asking everybody they saw, mostly if not all off the ship, if they had any local coinage because they were desperate to go the toilet and the only one they could find was at the side of the fish market/restaurant building and you needed coins to get in.

    Sorry but my credit card is for emergency use only seen and heard too many frauds abroad especially Spain to risk using my card.

    Sea Screen on Azura

    The screens Movies Under The Stars are very popular on Princess ships.

    QM2 review from first timers

    Think we were very lucky as we made our way down to area where you disembarked the ship and there was nobody about at all except for security and an officer. Wife went and asked when would we be allowed off the ship and he asked if we were disembarking or doing roundtrip. When she told him roundtrip he said you could get off now and that was about 0645 and were only ones in customs hall and were the first to arrive at the pier for NYC Ferry. We were in Wall St by 0730 and took a slow walk to 911 Museum and got there about 0815.
