That's right, 23kg for hand luggage but you must be able to lift it into the overhead locker. You can also carry a handbag or laptop bag. The dimensions of these are listed on the BA site - they...

We have had the date of February 1st for the new alcohol rules confirmed by P&O. Our TA sent a letter saying P&O wished to inform us about the date for the new rules on dress - January 1st - and the...

We have twice had aft suites on both Ventura and Azura but not on D deck, only C deck and once on A deck, so I can't comment on that particular suite. We have only felt any movement when the...

We are sailing on Aurora in January. In our Excursions brochure, which has just arrived, at the back where it gives all the information it states that the Code of conduct, including dress commences...

I eventually saw it last night and I cringed at it. It amused me when they were going round the city and said they had 90 mins to get back before the ship sailed - that must have been some rush to...

The St Kitts Railway tour is on our Cruise Personaliser for when we visit in February.

Yes I saw a notification from P&O that said that the alcohol policy was from February 1st 2018, maybe P&O will clarify.

I certainly don't think the Epicurean would be suitable for young children. I've never seen children in there and the menu doesn't mention children's choices. The other thing about the Epicurean is...

I know you're only on for three nights but just to tell you that if you tell P&O or the Butler that you don't require his services it does mean that you won't be able to have a cooked breakfast...

Redabby, thank you very much, the link does work. The views over the water from Champers do look lovely - menus look good too!

I thought I'd give an update on my coffee problem. I bought an Aeropress from Amazon and I've just made my first cup of coffee using it. Just what I wanted. I used the inverted method for those...

Thanks for all your replies. I can't seem to find a website for Champers - when I Google it I just get a notice saying the site is not active. At the moment I'm veering towards Cin Cin.

A fine posting Grapau - agree with what you have said. It's amazing how many of these critical postings and, in this case with a very misleading title, are first time postings on the site.

I agree with the above. Unless your suit carrier has hard sides I wouldn't take it as hand luggage. I've always packed dresses/long skirts in polythene and folded over in a case. My husband's...

One is being organised by someone on our cruise on Aurora in January. As Dai says these are never organised by P&O, someone has to do the organising and then approach P&O saying they have whatever...
Lunch in Barbados
We're planning to book somewhere for lunch on the day we are in Barbados next February. Two restaurants I've heard of are Cin Cin and Champers. We have had a recommendation for Cin Cin. Does...

Out of interest I looked at what was available on our long cruise - 65 nights on Aurora in January - and found that there is one suite available and one of each of the two grades of mini suite. I...

I've always understood that for the purposes of early boarding mini suites are treated the same as suites, certainly that's always the way it's been for us. The major difference between suites and...

Our trip on Oceana next September has Kusadasi cancelled and Heraklion instead - suits us. We've been to Kusadasi but never to Crete. We were last on Oceana about 14 months ago and while she...

Clodia, thanks for your recommendation of the Aeropress. I've just looked at it online and I think it's just what I want. So I've ordered one and will take some small plastic bags with me to put...

In the light of a previous poster who says Heraklion in Crete on their itinerary has been replaced. We are on Oceana next September and I've just had a letter from my Cruise Agent who tells me that...

Captains always have to communicate with Head Office in the case of having to miss a port, it's not just done at the whim of a Captain as some people on another forum have said. I know when we were...

Thanks for the replies. I don't like Rombouts coffee filter cups - not strong enough and I've tried coffee bags as recommended by someone on another forum but again they were not very strong. I...

We were on Aurora earlier this year in a Mini suite and we got priority boarding. We have often had a mini suite and have been given priority boarding every time.
Taking a Cafetiere on the cruise
We have a long cruise coming up and I would love to be able to make a decent cup of coffee. I know some people have said they take a Cafetiere with them. What do they do with the coffee grounds? ...
