When we went we found that US dollars were readily accepted by shops and market sellers etc. In fact in some countries they preferred it to their own currency. However if you want to do anything...

There are at least two. One being the photo of the incorrect ship and the other being that Mauritius was missed when it's where the cruise began and ended and they are docked there now.

It was Isafjordur I was specifically referring to. One of the most beautiful places we have ever been to and, I should imagine, even better in July. We went in May. We did an amazing little trip....

No worries. I'll dig it out and let you know. Which ports are you going to?

We have friends on a Costa ship now with three stops planned for Madagascar. Initially after boarding they were told one stop had been cancelled. Today they have been told that all three stops have...

It's possible the main tourist area of the Backwaters is a long way away, but we had a private tour and travelled no more than an hour by minibus. We had an amazing day on the Backwaters at Kerala -...

Hi Jennie

Ships clocks will change one hour at a time over a period of 4 days each way. Each time we've been the days of the change have varied so I can't say which days this will happen on. It's...

Odd that because the nightclub on the QM2 has always been practically dead every time we've gone in, aside from a few crew members off duty.

That's interesting because the last time we spoke to Cunard and RCI about this, which was only recently, they both said the e-visa for ports hadn't taken effect yet, even though Indian High...

The Indian visa saga is a long running one and subject to frequent rumours and changes as you've no doubt found in your reading. Despite frequent news stories that the system is going to get easier,...

Too be honest I think it very much depends on the ship and itinerary. We booked on the QV for next October back in March, so 19 months ahead on an Early Saver, but we've also seen Early Saver prices...

The problem with the websites that are supposed to give you port times is that a) not all ships are listed - the Aurora isn't on the first site and b) the second site usually only reflects what the...

Amber Cove is ok. Not much to do really as it's more of a purpose built resort destination with pools, bars etc. The resort itself is ok if you like swimming and lazing about in the sun. There are a...

Your best bet is to look at the cruise ship timetables on the individual port websites. It won't always work for every port, but where the times are given they are usually accurate. We did that for a...

I'll second that and it's not just on the QM2 either. I find it incredible that people can use the fitness centres with no basic instruction on the equipment, no fitness assessment and little or no...

They stopped working some time during the first half of the 2016 world cruise and haven't worked at all on any of our subsequent trips.

I thought there was a passenger ferry now from right near the Red Hook berth to Manhattan? We haven't been since it started, but I've seen it mentioned fairly frequently on these boards

Yes, you are right. It had been a long day and we'd spent 7 weeks on an RCI ship earlier in the year........I was going by the gym location and got my ships mixed up!

It's at the far end of the Kings Court - the bow (Grills) end. If you are walking up the starboard side it's on your left just before the end and if you walk up the port side of the Kings Court you...

It varies every night, but there is always a really good choice. Overall there is a greater range to choose from in the Kings Court though some of the menu available in the main dining room is also...

As no one else has replied I can give it a bit of a go. I can't speak for the Spa on the QV as we've only ever sailed on the QM2, but assume that the facilities are similar.
