    Cool Cruiser

    Brian is right. They will want everyone off by around 1030 - the ship has to be cleaned and got ready from top to bottom ready for new passengers by lunchtime.

    Early booking ! Why we won't bother again ?

    I agree with all you say.....we booked our upcoming cruise in April 2011 and didn't look at the price again....but we had an email offering the same cruise, same grade for 1180 pounds each less !! [img]http://www.egala.info/g.php[/img]

    Great thread.

    Exclusively Adults Only

    All the ships have early sitting at 6.30, late sitting at 8.30. Only Azura, Oceana and Ventura have Freedom Dining. All the ships have buffets plus additional restaurants for a supplement, eg. Sindhu, Marco-Pierre White's Ocean Grill, Seventeen etc.

    P & O newbie seeks advice

    We looked at the on board duty free shop and the prices seemed very reasonable, and you could take it to your cabin if you wished.

    Please read P & O

    Cruise itineraries are worked out 18 - 24 months in advance so they would have to know the dates and I can only guess at the prices !! [img]http://www.egala.info/g.php[/img]

    17 never again

    I agree with Dai - the meal we had in XVII last year was amongst the best we have ever had, let alone at sea. It is a shame when something you look forward to turns out to be a disappointment.

    Inboard account-tipping

    Last year we were club dining, so tipped cabin, wine and waiter individually and left a lot of loose change in box in the buffet dining room! [img]http://www.egala.info/g.php[/img]

    shore excursions

    You can then explore from there. But there are some very nice trips organised by p and o too, like the war tunnels,the rock, (see apes too) and st Michaels cave usually around £30 for a half day, this includes the cable car to the top of the rock. Well worth doing - much more to Gib than 'duty-free' shops (which never seem that cheap to me anyway!) [img]http://www.demama.info/g.gif[/img]

    Advice about valletta

    It cost 1 euro for a return ticket when we were there last year, though I believe it may have gone up a little since. It takes a splendid route around the outside of the city and drops you at the bus station at the entrance to the main street. [img]http://www.demama.info/g.gif[/img]

    oceana e223 sun 30sept 17 nights help

    I don't know what your other Croatian ports are, but you're in for a lovely treat when you go to Dubrovnik for the day. The shuttle bus will drop you off just outside the city walls and you can just stroll around all day until you get tired.

    Oriana -June Baltic Cruise. 2 Day tour of St. Petersbourg.

    I will certainly look at the other areas you suggested & take your advice on currency. Incidentally we nearly went on Aurora in May, but decided to go in June instead.

    Disembarking - what time to be off ship

    You get a note two nights before telling you which 'muster' station to sit in. They then trust you to sit tight while everyone else files past you.
