  1. How do people who cruise quite often guard against this? Only two cruises with p&o and my wife has come home from both badly affected, 1st arcadia (Baltics ) and now just returned off the Britannia ( Caribbean ) so different ships different climate same outcome. Also off this topic, earlier this week I posted Britannia where i mentioned shorts on board but the one I wanted answers on was has p&o given up with trays on all ships as they have done on Britannia, the post appears to have been taken down, have I missed something?
  2. Just a note to WilsonGR, the tui letter given at the end of the flight is incorrect in that it states we were delayed 28.49hrs but it was nearer 32 and the absolute shocker that due to being tired only realised when talking to my own insurance was the statement on our letter of IMPORTANT INFORMATION is scheduled time of departure...21:55 1st of feb, Actual time of departure 02:44 2nd feb which if correct would mean less than 5hrs overdue and under this is the line Total length of delay 28hr and 49 minutes.
  3. We were on the same flight, i have just filled in a compensation form on the tui site and will await a reply. Can you also claim off your insurance? P.S. This delay was handled very poorly by p&o, one rep at hotel we were put up in and she was not good at keeping people informed which resulted in a lot of angry passengers! Also the note given by tui says 28 delay,it was 32!
  4. We are on the Britannia this w/e on a Caribbean cruise, through family problems I need to stay in touch with my relatives. What is the best and cheapest way to use a mobile whilst out there and due to the refurbishment of the ship have they took this into consideration? Thanks for any answers in advance.
  5. No doubt been asked before but is it wise to take mozzie spray for a Caribbean cruise ?
  6. Yes mbs we are sailing last weeks of feb, maybe st vincent not popular enough
  7. I have had an e-mail today to inform me that a excursion we have booked to st Vincent whilst sailing on britannia has been cancelled and p&o have successfully processed a refund into our bank, well two things......no money yet showing in bank and at this moment even more annoying no explanation of why the trip has been cancelled. Anyone had any experience of this in the past? Thanks.
  8. Went to the Baltics on this ship in may, not a well travelled p&o couple but really enjoyed this ship and hope the Britannia is as good in jan!
  9. Have another try as there has been some strange messages coming out of there in the last few days, I had been trying to book flight seats for January but the site was down most of yesterday but managed in the end but not before some strange messages coming back about my site was not secure and people were trying to hack my computer!
  10. Trying to book flight seats but when I go to pay it says site is down and they only hold the seats for 2 hr ( 20 min left)
  11. would not want to go it alone, even the passport girls seemed angry and spilling for a fight and the one going into russia was a stunning girl that should have been happy with the world!
  12. Having taken our 1st p&o cruise in may to the Baltics we found it easy to pick our excursions as we wanted to see all the countries we docked at and chose different ways with p&o to view these places. Our next cruise is in January to the Caribbean for my wife's 60th and this is the problem.....we are docking at nine destinations and feel to a certain degree if you have seen one Caribbean beach you have seen them all so we may pick about three ( cost comes in also) if I give the nine can you give me the must go-to and the ones to forget. Barbados Curacao Aruba Granada Saint Vincent Saint Lucia Saint Kitts Antigua Sin Martin Thanks in advance for answers.
  13. I am 60yr old so no spring chicken but the point I am trying to make is that it seems silly to me that people can wear the same suit 4 times on a formal night that may be years old and looking it and yet on a casual night smart trainers are banned.I appreciate that standards need to be kept but clothes and fashion change with time and generations, people in their 4os are getting to a cruise age but doubt they want to wear a dj on holiday. Also I may live in the north and have been a season ticket holder of my club most of my life but I do not own a football shirt, I also do not shop in primark and mr moonstone I will have a different shirt on everynight, how about you?
  14. Shows how out of touch some people and p&o are, adidas are a smart expensive item of clothing the ones I own are smart fairly plain but not black( I have more taste).I could go to various lower range shops and buy a pair of cheap looking shoes for a tenner and they would be ok, I get the formal bit where you have to be looking the part expected but this is casual nights I am asking about, this reminds me of the hotels we have been in where shorts are barred in the evening meal( I agree with) yet people are allowed in with cheap shabby three quarter pants on and yet the m&s shorts that can cost much more are not allowed, very out dated!!
  15. Another dress code question and that is p&o say no trainers on casual nights, does this mean trainers as in tracksuit bottoms or footwear because if it is footwear I find this strange as I have a few pair of smart adidas that cost over £100 per pair which is more than the cost of most pair of shoes and also they say CASUAL NIGHT !
