Went on Aurora a few years ago on a mini cruise. She’s a very pretty ship with her tiered sten and has a lovely Crow’s Nest at the front.
We enjoyed our short cruise on her.

Don’t think they are having trouble selling these. Checked two out this morning and the only had inside and outside cabins left. All the higher grades showed “Sold out.”
New show Astonishi
Does anyone know if this is on all cruises? We are on Ventura in October for 12/13 nights and would love to see it.
Title should read Astonishing. Sorry can’t edit title.

Nearly missed it
Checking my emails today I noticed that the balance of our cruise should have been paid 6 days ago. Panic!

All paid now, so OK.

I use a wheelchair, so with that and lugging our suitcases on and off buses my husband finds this too much for him, so we always use CPS. Park outside terminal, porters take your luggage. When you...

On our last cruise my partner insisted we wait in our cabin until called. I use a wheelchair so had to use the lifts to get to muster. All lifts were occupied until 10 minutes after muster time so we...

Thank you for your reply. We may reconsider this as we are animal lovers and consider that training is best done with kindness.

Jerez. Horses and sherry excursion
I was looking at this P and O excursion from Cadiz when we go on Ventura in the autumn.

A few years ago we called at Stavanger and caught the so called ho ho bus, no cheap. Found out about it from the unhelpful and rude Tourist office. Had to change buses 3 times before we started

Going on Saturday and my wardrobe is nearly empty.
If going from Southampton just pack everything, no limit on how much luggage you can take.
Saga cruises
Could we please have a Saga cruise forum. So many older people in the U.K. use this line and must have many questions.
Thanks

Ventura cabin TV after refit
Think I read somewhere that you can no longer see your on-board account on the TV.
Anyone know if this is correct?
It was something I really liked on Ventura.

In the U.K. insurance doesn’t cover relatives being ill, only those travelling.

Peninsular club - different tiers
My travelling and cabin companion and I are on different tiers, Atlantic and Pacific. How are our on board discounts worked out if we put everything on one credit card?

Great thought John, but I don’t think the cruise lines would go to the trouble or expense of doing this. They don’t make any extra money from an accessible cabin in the same grade as a standard. They...

There is a problem with booking an accessible cabin. As there are so few of these you have to book really early, up to two years in advance. Most insurance companies will not insure more than a year...
