  1. Well I booked QE 517 Alaska for June 25 yesterday. The triple OBC was too good to miss. Now will wait until end May for flight info coming out on Virgins website and go from there. So excited 😊 thanks for all the insights on what was an extremely timely debate for me. Xx
  2. Can you get decaff coffee in the MDR at breakfast time? DH has switched to decaff and the results have literally been life changing, I know they do the nescafe sachets on the cabin hospitality tray but wasn't so sure about mdr. Thanx in advance.
  3. We cruise May 30th and our payment date is March 7th hth
  4. @Kensington-cruiser we too are looking at Alaska 2025 as its our ruby anniversary and my 60th if god spares me lol 😁 my DH hates flying long haul so i want direct flights only to Seattle, i noticed for our particular dates Cunard are offering air fares at £1500 per passenger. I looked up Virgin direct flights from heathrow and economy come out (based on this years dates as 2025 not available) came out at around £1900 return for both of us, i could use the extra money Cunard are charging to upgrade to premium economy. We also want to spend a couple days pre cruise so i think we'll be booking our own flights at this point. Can you add cunard air at a later date?
  5. As mentioned Marella is fairy laid back pretty much what you would wear to a fancy restaurant will be OK for DTIN. You'll have a lovely time staff are smashing and shows are usually of good standard. We always dine between 8 - 8.30 and always managed to get into the late show. Have a fab time πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ₯‚
  6. Just booked to go on Ex2 in June. We could have gone 11 days on p&o for same money but as above comments on that board put me off, also we can fly local LBR and not have to schlep to s'ham or Heathrow win win imo πŸ˜‰
  7. Unfortunately not suitably aged to be idle for that length of time afraid ye olde rat race still rules our lives lol πŸ˜†
  8. I just print the cunard ones off do the origami then laminate and staple and tape. La voilΓ  πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‰
  9. We were last onQV Aug 22 and that's what happened we had a card in the cabin on arrival with our table number on but looks like it was the one memento I didn't keep, must have left it at maitre'd desk. I'll just put aft window pref for 2 in my comments. Thanks all. πŸ‘
  10. QV Brittania deck 2 late sitting we always had a table for 2 in the back window which we loved despite the throbbing of the propellers and noise but can't remember its number 358 or 368 possibly. Want to put it on our next booking comments anybody help?
  11. We fancied trying QA but all her voyages are pretty bleugh. Wish cunard could come up with some new itineraries for her been to most of her ports of call got the badge the rash and the t-shirt lol πŸ˜† now looking at QV in med but again ports of call are same old same old πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ™„ doesn't inspire. πŸ˜•πŸ€”πŸ€”
  12. Not been there but march will be going into the southern hemisphere autumn? So probably layers are your best bet much like northern Europe or alaskan summer.
  13. Exactly you get 4 piddly sachets which my husband has in one cup of coffee leaving me zero! You can ask for more but they only usually add an extra one of each hence take my own. Plus Yorkshire tea bags for proper tea. πŸ‘πŸ˜‹
  14. Milk so long as it is UHT (ultra heat treated,) is fine in sealed cartons, we have taken it on land holidays and cruises as those sachets they supply are abysmal.
  15. I have already posted on another similar top on another page. As a farmer in the UK we have the spectre of African Swine Fever getting ever closer to us across Europe. No meat or dairy are allowed into the UK unlicensed. Illegal food goods can carry disease and a whole industry could be decimated because of some idiot smuggling a ham sandwich or a smelly unpasteurised cheese. California as mentioned above has strict rules as there are in Europe Please please check the rules when you travel. I don't want to have to kill all my livestock because you were an irresponsible idiot. #justsaying
  16. Has anyone docked at Savona, trips on offer appear to be Genoa or Turin. Any input greatly appreciated. Will be a Friday in April.
  17. Today's express holiday supplement review of Azura wouldn't u know lol πŸ˜†
  18. We are but only bringing up other London airports on website as alternatives to Luton nothing north of Luton. πŸ€”
  19. I'm interested in this post as I'm looking at two cruises this coming April dates are 2 days apart both london flights. Cabins both balconies. Marella 5 stops Β£2794 all in P&O Azura 4 stops Β£2298 select fare Β£170 Obc no drinks Been on Marella twice, loved first only liked 2nd so wondering about P&O but finding reviews mixed on Azura, bit marmite lol πŸ˜† Anybody want to chuck in their tennpeneth?
  20. As farmer I am strongly against people taking food on or off ships for picnics that then leave it behind for scavenging animals or birds which may then develop disease which results in the culling of livestock. Lest we forget foot and mouth or African swine fever which is now in northern Europe and only being kept at bay by the strong border force confiscating for example the recent wagon load of pork trying to be brought into the UK illegally. By all means take pre packaged biscuits cakes chocbars etc but no meats or dairy thanks. I don't want to have to kill all my animals because you want to save time and money by breaking rules.
  21. Be thankful they have. Haguesund is a one horse town with not much to recommend it. Alesund on the other hand is a fabulous stop. Enjoy πŸ‘Œ
  22. To me it sounds like they're having a clampdown on maklingerers who ask for assistance believing it'll get them on board early etc, seen it at airports need assistance to get on and off plane best seats at front can hardly move then you see them a day later galloping around resort like teenagers!! I'm never against genuine people who have disabilities getting help but as with everything these days there are are chancers who take the pee. Guess this is what this is all about.
  23. Ditto as a farmer i find the pouches so useful for carrying all sorts of stuff, meds for animals, knife, rope, phone etc. I have work ones and 'good' ones for travelling or excursions.
  24. I saw somewhere that one of the Discovery ships was due to be based in Cyprus cruising to Israel and Egypt this autumn, has there been anything about changes to these trips due to the conflict int he area? They appear to have been pulled from marella website.
  25. Hmm i looked at explorer for a week in canaries in November came out at just under Β£3k same dates on Azura P&O Β£1500 we will not spend the difference on drink even if we really tried. Go figure.
