There is no ‘if searched’ and ‘if they catch you’ option. Any bottles in a bag, no matter how big, will show up when scanned by the ship’s crew. Refusal to have the bag scanned or searched by hand...

On a recent cruise on Oriana, there was a dish of Glacier Fruits in the cabin instead of the very small fruit flavoured sweets they normally provide. Only time will tell whether this was a mini suite...

I am not trying to be offensive to you but I think if you started giving staff bits of snacks etc some may see it as being patronising and offering charity even though you don’t intend it to be.

Unless there are 4 of you, you are exceeding the 2 litre limit. My advice is to take the wine 2.1 litres, and buy gin from the room service menu and it will be delivered to your cabin. Choice is...

I agree, and another good thing is that you can keep transferring chips, onion rings etc onto the hot rock so everything is hot when you eat it.

April fool or not, it is not such a bad idea. I am sure the Peninsular Club can come up with many worse alterations, if, as widely predicted on here, changes are imminent.

I have never suggested that who you book with has any effect on whether you are upgraded or not. All I am saying is that if you book with P&O, they will tell you if you have been upgraded (or at...

I accepted that P&O bear some responsibility for the original error but it is not up to them to contact you directly regarding the upgrade, when you have passed the booking on to an agent. I guess...
If P&O made an error in passing on the no upgrade...
If P&O made an error in passing on the no upgrade option, of course they take some responsibility. The point I was making is that those who use an agent to handle their booking should not then...

Only been upgraded once but as we booked directly with P&O, they sent an email to tell us. As you passed your booking made onboard onto an agent, P&O will have informed the agent whose job it is to...

I do get a little suspicious when people post something very critical as their first post and then do not post again. It will be interesting to see whether Travel Junkie 1 posts again in reply to...

I am surprised by your story. Last year, we broke down on the way to Southampton and it soon became clear that we would not get there before the ship sailed. We gave progress reports to the terminal...

[quote=tartanexile81;55648333]Nobody knows what shops they will have after the refit. The shops all closed down and stock was removed about 5 days before the end of our recent cruise. Apparently...

I think we will have to agree to differ and do things in the way we think best. Both seem to work well anyway.

The same applies to those booking direct with P&O by phone. They have access to all empty cabins and are able to sell them. If booking online, try entering numbers of cabins you want rather than...

If you booked with P&O direct, I am sure they will move your cabin to one that is more agreeable to you. All you need to do is phone them (use the freephone number). I disagree with the advice of...

Heavy hints have been dropped so Sharon’s post is justified.

At least you have some on board credit to reduce it a little! Does the information about how to pay your outstanding balance include gold bars or diamonds?
Pre-registering has paid off for us
Pre registered for three cruises last week and just discovered we have been allocated excellent cabins. Maybe we would have got them had we not pre-registered but I guess we will never know. Even had...

You can pre register with a TA but they cannot pre register you with P&O. They will try to make your booking for you when booking opens but it is possible that specific cabins you require will have...

A major difficulty with offering cruises to fit the half term holidays is that they vary throughout the country. If they were fixed nationally, this would not be a problem but as they are locally...

What sort of cabin are you looking at. Maybe amount of obc allocated to some cabin types is insufficient to cover the cost of parking?

Deposits are paid so bookings are confirmed but cabins are not allocated until booking opens.
