  1. We tried LV with whom we have car and house insurance and they gave us a really good price...much much cheaper than anyone else and covering everything even America...so have gone with them. Handy to know they go up to 90 day trips and for up to,80 yr old.
  2. Has anyone managed to get reasonable insurance for this trip...been quoted ridiculous amounts. I am 67 and my husband 71..no serious medical problems except high blood pressure and diabetes 2 both controlled by medication ..not insulin.
  3. We have done several cruises on both P&O and Fred. We love the friendliness of Fred...it’s like being in a country hotel. The food and entertainment was very good. The only downside was the old-fashioned cabins but heyho you only use them to sleep in. Out recent cruise on P&O Aurora....50 nights to Amazon...was actually one of the best P&O holidays we have had with them...and we have been cruising with them since 1978..... So it’s difficult to say but we have a 70 night booked on Balmoral for `Jan 2020 and are really looks forward to it...and the great price drinks package! Whatever you chose, Imhope you have a great time.
  4. Thank you.....its nice you can adjust shower so as not to get your hair wet.
  5. You have to,use your OBC before you get any loyalty discount....
  6. Are the showers fixed or can you adjust them?
  7. Just come off Oriana...no problem taking onboard three or four bottles of alcohol and even at ports of call no-one was stopped bringing some aboard. Those who were scared to do so handed in their purchases to collect at end of cruise.....not sure if it was because there is currently no drinks package on Oriana that they turned a blind eye. Off on Aurora in a couple of weeks...wonder if it will be the same.
  8. Does Oriana have a film channel on cabin tv that you can pause and return to whenever.
  9. Not been on HAL but Cunard, Princess, P&O, Celebrity and Princess and still prefer FO. So friendly. Food as good as others and great choice of activities. If you like country hotels as opposed to glitz and glamour, then Fred is for you. Sent from my iPad using Forums
