We normally drink around 7 bottles of wine a week at home. Hopefully we would drink twice that amount on a cruise.

Been to Almeria (lived nearby), Tarragona and Roses. It really depends what you want to do, and how much travelling you are prepared to undertake. Personally , in all 3 I would just stroll into town,...

Totally agree about the "cringe" factor. I have been shot down in flames before on this forum about the awful sailaways, but given that most passengers seem to give them a miss ( on our last cruise...

There was a similar 'party' on our last Arcadia cruise. Meet the officers with cocktails and nibbles. Nothing to do with status, you just had to pay. A profit generator, nothing more.

Not sure about that. Tips are still expected by many in the UK service sector, but not at the US level.

Totally agree with you. Visited twice, the last time about 20 years ago to meet up with friends, and would never go again. Brash, vulgar, with laws that can be draconian.

I have a feeling you are going to be disappointed, although I do seem to member reading that P&O were going to treat each sector as a separate cruise, which, I presume, would mean that you could...

Our last cruise from Southampton left in November - it was dark, cold and raining. Not a great occasion for a sail away!

Didn't know they did free drinks! Still not enough of an incentive to make me stay.

Bottle of wine per person, and as many other bottles as you like, subject to a $15 per bottle corkage charge. Cheaper to take wine on board and pay the corkage, than buy bottles onboard.
