I can't wait JB, but for me it's another 8 years, assuming they don't move the goal posts again.

It is luck of the draw sometimes, we have know similar sorts on P&O before, never spoilt a cruise but you do wonder sometimes!

I think the charges are if you go over your limit. I used my mobile this summer while on a cruise in Iceland, and no hidden charges came up, I was looking at weather data as some of their coaches had...

Currency for Martinique and Guadaloupe?
I assume that use Euros at both Martinque or Guadaloupe, but do you need to get some or will they take US Dollars?

Toiletries in cabin?
What do they supply in the bathrroms of the cabins in the way of toiletries? Soap, shower gels etc. We will be on Discovery 1. Just trying to minimise the weight in the cases.

Thanks

Email today as well saying the same for us early January. Quite happy with that change, but wish Dominica a speedy recovery.

That would mean that if anyone was booked on both (1) Paradise Islands and (2) Seven Islands they would be going to Tobaga and Martinique twice. That's we are booked on leaving the 31st December 2017...
Laundry on Discovery 1 ?
Unlike P&O I beleive you don't have those free to use laundry rooms on Discovery 1. What facilities are there or what is the sort of cost if you get it done for you on the ship? Management (Wife) is...

Thank you for posting that liauq, our seven isles is January 7th, but we would be quite happy with those changes.

It sounds a bit controlling to me, a bit like paying for the pleasure to spend a week in prison with all the want you can't do. All inclusive is the way forward, that will stop all this.

Thanks Sheila, we will take our adaptor(s) together with a short extension lead with 4 sockets. Don't worry, just used for phone chargers etc, not electric heaters ;p

Discovery cabin plugs?
Just checking, would I be right in saying that I will need an adaptor from American type plugs or do they have UK 3 pin?

We're trying Thomson (Marella as it is now called), all inclusive and tips included. I've not heard many negative things lately and I won't then come home to a credit card bill. We don't like the big...

You don't need ESTA's for any of those islands. I got ours a week ago as the December/January cruise we are going on go to Puerto Rica and US Virgin Islands and we have be told nothing to the...

The most obvious replacement to Dominica is Martinque and being that they have smaller ships to their rivals and would expect to be tendered in.

Did both our ESTA's ($14) and now showing on my bank statement with an entry of £10.73 and £0.29 (x2) £11.02 each. So hopefully both US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are still a goer for January.
