I agree but my comment was in reference to DaiB who stated that Princess drinks package is the same as P&O when it is clearly not. If I read correctly on P&O you have to wait 15 mins between drinks...

Just contacted my TA about upgrading my cabin on QM2 for Nov 2019 which was booked when brochure was released in Sept/Oct 2017. Know that you pay the price of the cabin when you booked not current...

Very disappointed that Iona will only be doing 7nt cruises from Southampton so that certainly cancels us out of cruising on her as we dont do cruises of anything less than 12nts. Pity as will be the...

I am not getting riled up about it as it doesnt apply on Princess cruises as soon as you finish your drink they ask you if you would like another. It is P&O who have the petty 15 minute between...

We had many fruit juices, martinis and as for wine in the Vine Bar as soon as our glass was empty he was at our table with the bottle of wine asking if we wanted another one. Every night last thing...

When we asked on Crown Princess we were told as long as the drink is under $12 it was available and none of this silly 15 minutes between drinks and you cannot have large bottles of water, canned or...

Not for us either there is no way we would ever get anywhere near the cost of £1118-60 on drinks on a 14nt cruise so if we ever cruise again with P&O we would pay as you go like we used to do. Only...

If you dont eat your dinner in Princess Grill then you are missing out so much that I dont think the extra you would pay just for a bigger stateroom is worth the extra expenditure.

Ring a specialist cruise TA and tell them your requests of suites you would be happy to book and they will try and book them only. It is only if you book direct that they will only let you tell them...

No it doesnt or at least it doesnt with the cruise specialist TA I have used many times for pre registering. When the day opens for pre registering I have rung the TA and given them 4 or 5 cabins...

As it stands the new menu on QM2 only lasts until 7th September and is $39pp so it must be returning to Verandah which is charged at $49-95pp. Strange because I have asked Cunard direct what happens...

It is often said that you only find out whether a company is found to be excellent is their actions when something goes wrong and clearly Cunard's action were not good and could have been a lot...

When we have booked excursions in the past which hasnt been very often they have always been in an envelope on the desk when we have embarked.

I think you have to take many of the "quotes" with a very large pinch of salt as the article was in the Daily Wail.;p

If you pre register with a cruise TA you can give a choice of cabins that you would be happy to book and then they will do their very best to book one of them and only then is the deposit taken. It...

It would have to be a look a like as the actor that played Onslo- Geoffrey Hughes died in 2012.

It does give impression but does not actually say the "whole" of the season or exclusively in Norway so we will have to wait and see.

They are almost identical in design just cosmetic differences but when we went on the Maiden cruise there was many differences on Ventura i.e. no Glass House it was Tapas, Epicurean was The White...

I disagree with the statement even though they are the same build layout IMO totally different ships. We sailed on Ventura maiden in 2008 and havent sailed on her since we sailed on Azura maiden in...

They wont start selling it on day 2 they will be selling it from the minute you embark the ship and will be available to purchase for the first 2 days after that you will not be able to purchase it....

The flyer that you yourself posted states what I said earlier and I stand by what I said that you might have until the 2nd day of the cruise to buy the package but you will be charged for the full...

But that is what is in the T&Cs. You can take up until 2 nd day but any drinks drunk on first day if within rules will be wiped off your account. They havent put "must be purchased for every day of...

Yes but if you read the second comment in Restrictions heading it states like I said that the package must be purchased for every day of your cruise. You might have until 2 nd day to buy it but they...

Hope people realise that as per details of Ultimate Drinks Package P&O state-

"Only available on cruises of five nights or more and must be purchased for every day of the cruise"
