  1. We're on the 9th December (with our son and his girlfriend). It will give us chance to check out the ship, especially accessibility. Tilbury isn't great for us, but we are going to see our friend in Southend after we disembark, so it should work out OK.
  2. You might think that this is the best product for you, but not everyone is the same. I have found the bands to be utterly useless.
  3. I have my fingers crossed!
  4. Which date in Jan please? We are on Iona at the end of that month . . .
  5. We were scheduled to have our final formal evening on a port day (penultimate day of the cruise). As it happened, we were unable to tender due to sea conditions, so it ended up as a sea day anyway!
  6. We did our Randox tests this morning. I was able to use the app on my android phone. Had some trouble getting my test strip in focus, kept on getting a message to contact supplier. However, I eventually managed it and our certificates arrived about 10 minutes later.
  7. Megabear, I am so glad that your aunt will soon be home. Thank you for taking the time to update us, it's not as if you have nothing else to do!
  8. Friends reporting waits of 2 hours or more. Many people changed to fixed dining but they are now full, they say.
  9. I have friends onboard at the moment. They also report very long queues for freedom dining, to the point that it is virtually impossible to do anything else in the evening. Many people in formal gear in buffet as they want to do things other than queue for dinner. Other problems as already documented (showers etc). We are due to embark on the day they disembark and it does make looking forward to it rather more difficult.
  10. We have Randox tests and I have installed the app on my android phone. Does this mean that I won't be able to use this?
  11. The problem with this is that one person's 'must have' is another's 'waste of space'. We did take an over-door shoe hanger once but didn't really need it, so haven't bothered since. We have never felt the lack of magnetic hooks etc either. However, I do take a small tube of laundry detergent whilst other people are horrified at the thought of washing clothes on holiday. My essentials are medications, device chargers, travel documents and credit card/s. However, I don't travel light (we are within an hour of our nearest departure port) and tend to think 'put them both in' when wondering whether I should take A or B top/dress/shoes etc!
  12. Me too, restaurants and shops.
  13. All we can do is wait and hope at this stage.
  14. We have booked 30 nights to New York in September 24, so would like her to still be with the fleet then 🤞
  15. https://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/20203749.norwegian-star-cruise-ship-portland-port/
  16. I find that the cruiseline excursions can give me ideas for things to go and look at for myself.
  17. The 5thJuly cruise doesn't seem to be showing either.
  18. Our July 'Round Britain' cruise number wasn't accepted and our ports aren't listed . . .
  19. Deleted message as managed to sort out the issue.
  20. My friends are due on this one, and we are supposed to board the day you get off, so I have everything crossed at the moment, not just fingers!
