  1. Thank you so much laverendrye... Excellent service... Exactly what I wanted... Have a lovely day!... Cheers Gaybo
  2. Does anyone have an electronic copy of a 'Self - Guided Walking Tour of the Saguenay'? We would like to walk from the cruise terminal into and around the town looking at the significant buildings and any work of art/sculptures etc. Any suggestions as to the best place to stop for a beer would also be appreciated... Cheers Gaybo
  3. Hi Nang, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you but we were also originally told Aust Dollars, then British pounds and it ended up being Euros... Hopefully they will have got this straightened out by the time you board... the prices really were pretty good compared to other ships we have been on... I hope you have a great time as we sure did... despite a few on board that said they didn't... you can't please everyone I guess is true... Enjoy!... Cheers Gaybo
  4. Hi Nang, As promised here is the scanned Bar List & Prices (Euros) that we were charged on the VDG Maiden Voyage - Singapore to Tilbury... Hope this assists you making a decision... Cheers Gaybo CMV VDG Bar Menu001.pdf
  5. Hi Nang, No there were no beer deals available on our cruise... except for the 50% off Bitburger towards the end... Some lunchtimes, they had buckets of 5 beers for the price of 4... but you couldn't mix the brands... even when they were all priced the same... so we didn't buy them as I was drinking Grolsh & my husband Coronas... best of a bad bunch I'm afraid... But... I think you might be luckier as you may have the German brands leftover... fingers crossed... When I get home in July... I am still in the UK... I will scan the drink menu that also has the prices
  6. No problems at Beejay4016. Another point that may be of interest... The Laundry was operating on AUD$1 coins... (3 for the washer and 1 for the dryer) this was a leftover from the P&O days... This wasn't immediately obvious and there were many days with limited coins being used. Eventually CMV had some tokens made up (not enough) to replicate the AUD$1 coins and CMV were then charging the onboard accounts with €1 for the tokens... this in turn gave the many whingers, another thing to whine about... But they were fortunate to have access to a self service laundry as there ar
  7. The Cruise Critics that were going to Jerusalem & Bethlehem on a GTI private tour (CMV only offered these sites separately despite them being only a 20 minute drive apart) met at 7.30am and we left the ship (The Vasco da Gama) and went effortlessly through immigration and our guide, ‘Dikel’ was waiting for us with our driver and a very nice 16 seater BMW Bus… I just love it when things go to plan. Dikel explained our day to us on the way to ‘The Mount of Olives’ up on ‘Mount Zion’, where it is said the Messiah will resurrect the dead on judgement day. It is Jerusalem’s holiest
  8. Hi Nang, Having just disembarked from the Singapore to Tilbury, VDG, cruise... Here are the 'Drinks Deals' that were offered onboard... All purchases were charged in Euros... Cheers Gayle Special Drink Packages… but NOT inclusive of any other discounts or Columbus Club discounts Cocktails = 15 for €60- Coffee = 15 for €36- Specialty Coffee = 15 for €46 Most nights there was a feature of drinks being discounted in a few bars… from 5pm – 7.30pm… 50% off Sours & Fizzes 50% off Aperitif Cocktails 50% off Martinis 50% off Sherry & Port
  9. Hi Nang, We still have another 2 weeks to go... Currently in Naples at present... When I get to a steady/regular WiFi source I will answer all your questions... after 6th June... We are all quite miffed as we are being charged in Euros... and the beers they listed and also the wines are not what we were told... Lots of surprises on board and not all of them pleasant but saying that the cruise is going well and we all keep telling ourselves that 'you get what you pay for' and the cruise was a bargain... So all good really! Cheers Gaybo
