If you want a British experience as well as a British cruise then you could try P&O Oriana end of June doing British Isles. Or look at Cruise and Maritime or Fred Olsen which both do round Britain...

Must have chips on the brain after talking about fish and chips. Tried to edit chip for ship but it doesn't want to change - still a nice seaside image!

Each to his own Jean, but I like to keep my laundry up to date, especially when it's hot.

Thanks for the advice. However I know that laundrettes can be locked on port days. Is there any way of finding out in advance if they are open or not? I was caught out once being clever using a...

That's exactly how I had my little altercation last time. When I got back to laundry it had been removed from machine but the lady who now had clothes in machine thought she had first right to the...
Laundrette Wars
We had a very mild battle over washing machines on Oceana last year, but it wasn't pleasant. I have heard that things can get quite out of hand in the laundrettes.
In view of this, we are on Arcadia...

Don't let this average put you off, for a start the Norway and Iceland cruise is a much longer one plus, if the average is 63 then that still means that approx half the passengers are younger than...

Do be aware that alot of Londoners head out down the M3 on a Friday night and the traffic can be pretty appalling. I should imagine your timings will be earlier in the day but even so, the traffic...

Myself and husband fall in the middle of your age range and have cruised on both Arcadia and Aurora. But probably the best comparison is a 7 night cruise that we did in September 2016 on Oriana. ...

Well we do like to get our money's worth and we weren't in a rush. You can probably wizz round the first displays much faster but we found them interesting on the history of Belfast and at 5pm you...

The lady at the entrance didn't even look at the times on our tickets when we went through early and it was me that anxiously asked if it was ok to be half an hour before our time slot so hopefully...

We were there on Saturday and there were no queues at the ticket office. We arrived half an hour early for our time slot but went straight through. We only booked online the evening before and all...

I saw this exhibition in April and was very impressed with the layout and exhibits and the ending was very moving.

We had a guarantee cabin on a select price on Oceana last October and it worked out fine. However we did specify on the cruise personaliser that we wanted a queen bed. I don't think P&O can be held...

What is your cabin number? Looking at the Oceana deck plan I can't see anything that matches the description you have given.
There are a couple with fixed twin beds but nothing with only 1 fixed bed...

This is useful advice for travellers in USA, Canada and Australia. However the original poster is in Denmark. I think the only way is to call P & O or e-mail via the numbers given in my last post.

We did this independently in October on the repositioning cruise. I'm sure we had a time on our e-ticket but I know I phoned P&O about a different query and asked then and it was either 12 or 1pm...
