Doubt it really as P&O are a small part of Carnival and unlikely to impact on their overall profitability. And as already mentioned - a small reduction in the obc offered, a small increase on future...

The drink was apparently consumed on the plane before arrival - so how do you stand if you'd had a drink or two the night before on board but there may still be some alcohol in your system next day...

Love Oslo. Easy DIY port. For something unusual walk over the roof of the Opera House but top tip imo is to visit Vigeland Park. We got there by catching the Metro from the central square. It was...

And if you're lucky enough to get a sunset behind the stern that's such a bonus too. Magical!

Weekends in particular seem badly affected by timetable changes, engineering work on the tracks and industrial action. On our last journey to Southampton from Gatwick, the guard came round checking...

You've had a taste - just think about all the other places out there waiting for you with lots of ideas in the previous posts! Happy travels - enjoy!

P. S. Buffet 'car' should read 'trolley' (and they stopped buffet cars years ago I was told).

Also like dave, we buy open return tickets for either coach or train travel. This leaves your return...

I agree with yuvraj re the train service.

We've had some really poor experiences of SW trains in the last 6 months. Remember the first Sunday in May with the new timetables? Train, bus, train,...

I have never known excursions being discounted during a cruise. It is slightly cheaper to book on line before you go plus any loyalty discount will also be applied.
As for spa treatments etc they...

I know exactly what you mean - the 'I can't believe I'm really here' feeling. Going to the ballet in St Petersburg felt like that too!

Sooooo difficult! When I was much younger and far less travelled I remember asking an older relative who travelled frequently and to places I'd never imagine visiting which was his favourite...

In Olden, if you like walking, we walked from the town to the lake. If you scroll down this link to page 13/52 there is a map. We walked from A via the green route to the lake at F then returned...

Too true! It's like the bad reviews a) someone with a grouse is more likely to want to air their complaint than the many more who have been happy with their cruise and b) it's the poor ones which...

Sadly, whilst this thread is about lift use, it is a reflection of so many aspects of today. 'Me', 'Me', 'Me''! So often we see examples of lack of respect and consideration - holding doors for...

It's easy to do the Funicular at Bergen yourself. I'd recommend you get off early (perhaps you'll need to take the shuttle if you're berthed a little out of town) and make your way to the Funicular...

Perhaps the 20-year old was little tongue in cheek, but like you, I do wonder who determines the entertainment programme across the fleet - and how they determine suitability for the perceived mix of...

I'm sure you will Jean. Earlier posts have made comprehensive and I feel very balanced views on her. She is so like the Oriana that I feel sure you will feel at home. Sadly, no Tiffany's but I...

School hols shouldn't be an issue as Aurora is becoming an adult only ship next summer with the loss of Oriana.

We haven't been on Ventura but have been on Azura several times which is her sister...

We had to collect our luggage in Malta - we travelled from Gatwick on a Thomas Cook flight. As some of the passengers were going to hotels and weren't all joining the cruise our luggage wasn't...

Thank you kentchris. That's what I had understood and hoped was the case in the beginning but the rider from an earlier post about different countries offering different levels of care (to their own...

Well that's clear enough. Thanks for the clarification - I haven't seen it spelled out so clearly before. Was that off the EHIC Government site tartanexile?

by tartanexile81:
Never had to use it but EHIC is only valid if you have an address on land and not a cruise ship in transit.


These two are not compatible. I had thought it would be ok on land...

Was the Billi Billi on the menu or did you have to ask for it? It had definitely disappeared from the Oceana menu. Interested to know if the menus are the same across the fleet or vary from ship to...
