We are also going to be in the PG on the Queen Victoria, first time on Cunard, would love to hear about people’s experiences. Lots of QG reports, but not so many PG.

We are on a Q.V. cruise to the Baltic may 2019. First time on Cunard. PG at a fabulous price. Could not say no.

This question of shorts or jeans comes up all the time. What is so hard about pulling on a pair of pants?

We snagged a terrific deal on the Baltic May of 2019 in a PG. Price has since doubled. First time on Cunard, been on my bucket list. We've sailed mostly Celebrity, some RC, 1 Princess, 1 HAL,...

Just checked, no deal for us. Balcony is $1400 more. sometimes pays to book early.

Thanks for all your insight, but we are looking at comfort seats, not premium economy. These are just over/under $100 upgrade and I am truly frustrated. Flightease told me one thing, my TA another....
flightease frustration
Booked the Koningsdam for May 1, 2018 with a TA. Got flights to Rome, back from Amsterdam, nonstop at a good price. . . but cannot change seats to "comfort" seats, the ones w/more room on either...

that's a lot of travel agencies. Anyone know how to find out if there's an issue? I don't want to be on a cruise with a very large group as they take up lots of public areas. My TA says not to...
all veranda cabins forward and aft taken???
We have signed up for a Koningsdam cruise 5/1/18 and the HAL website is showing ALL forward and aft cabins as unavailable on all decks. I've never seen this before on HAL or Celebrity. Anyone with...

Alaska cruise esp., you can also use compression bags for bulky items like warm jackets/sweaters/fleeces. I love my cubes, but for winter ski vacations I also use the compression bags. Place the...
no booking from us
Celebrity was always our favorite line as far as bang for the buck. For the first time ever we do not have a future cruise booked. Prices are higher, entertainment on our last cruise was poor...
best things
escargot any night for the asking, same w/shrimp cocktail. And don't forget breakfast in Blu at 7:30 on port days.
blu was great
Just off the Solstice, Sydney to Auckland. I thought the food was better than last year on the Summit, service was great. Don't know if it was the ship or the chef, but we thought the food great. ...
just off the solstice
Blu was delightful, never crowded. We tended to eat early, 6:30 to 7:00, also early for breakfast. Service was wonderful, never saw waiters running. Don't forget -we did - breakfast on port days...
Solstice cabin 1674
This cabin was Aqua when we booked, is now consierge. Long walk to elevators which may be a good thing if you are mobile. Be aware there are service closets across the hall and right next to you is...

my vote
My vote is for romeinlimo. We had Fabio (I call him Fabulous Fabio) and he picked us up in a van, took us thru Rome (they can use the bus lanes), gave us a great tour, and then they arranged to have...
where to get tickets?
We are elite level (finally). Can someone tell us where on the ship to go for tender tickets? We've always just stood in the line & waited our turn, but we have some private tours coming up on our...
I'll report back
We just booked them for Oct 28, so I'll let you know. We booked sedan service as it was only a few dollars more than the shared ride, was a little surprised we have to go to their desk to meet the...
York
Got a fairly good deal at the York, sounds like a cross between a hotel and a serviced apartment. I'll give a review when we get back. Got it thru the last minute club, lmtclub.com.
York
Got a good price at the York before our nov 2solstice cruise. Hope it was a good choice
thanks Mr. T
Loved the Molecular Bar, jury's out on World class. They look awfully sweet, but I'll have to taste a few in November. Most just seem like they should have a little umbrella in them.
waiting for luggage
We scanned declarations form, scanned our passports, and then waited almost TWO HOURS for our luggage to be "processed." Until your name comes up on a big board you can go no further. We were in a...
too heavy
I find the Chico's Travelers are just too heavy weight-wise to go in my suitcase. Now let's talk about the Znergy line. I love them and have worn them to death. They are lightweight, yet seem warm...
me too
Third Azamara cruise (10 nights Baltic) was somewhat disappointing. Food just so/so, MDR service a little slow was excused b/c of noro issues. Not quite the cruise we had come to expect. And now...
after dinner
I love having a wonderful dinner, ordering what I want w/o looking at prices, no haggling with friends over the bill, how much to leave for a tip, etc.
