It is becoming increasingly so that you are asked to carry them. Recently Amsterdam and La Rochelle were ports were you had to show them. The latter causing long queues. However you are always told...

Round Britain cruises have never been a part of P&O’s main schedule. There have been one or two recently in the fast few years but not on a regular basis. I suspect they have agreed with Princess...

Well the drinks have been as they are now since we started in 2001. So the Change must have been made before then. You cannot expect things to be the same as they were over 20 years ago.

The bungee was on Ventura from new and was removed not long after, less than a couple of years.

Yes a very odd statement. When the Harding company sells the same stuff on all the ships they are on or were on.

Totally agree, meals are hotter and if you want more veg or a side salad just ask. Must be an age thing but I am perfectly happy with smaller meals on board as there is so much food to start with....

Certainly had them in the Crows Nest and Red bar or the Blue bar whichever one is on Ventura. Not in the glass house and not on the first few days.

We cruise on all the ships and we will sail on the new ones as well only not on the maidens.

September or October would be favourite if they come into service in the spring.

Had a look at the pricing for that cruise. The prices seem to be about the same as when the cruise started booking, I take it you booked in autumn last year when the prices were at there highest.

I only drink the Red wine.

With regard to the coffee on shore, I am now finding you have to be there very early to take advantage of this facility. Boarding seems to be getting earlier and...

It’s like Indian tapas, small plates. We had them on Azura but they did not do them on Ventura when we were there. I suppose it was like the glasshouse but Indian. Very good. The Indian lunch was...

Not a “board” John. The only thing I have seen is the slightly curved gangway used to get wheelchairs and scooters onto the vaporetto in Venice. I do not believe it would work unless you were in the...
Boarding a tender

It is a silly idea that you could put a “board” between the ships pontoon and a tender....

Well at last some common sense. I fully agree that if this was a scam it would have been exposed some time ago with the encouraging of whistleblowing which is prevalent.
