Had I known that there was already a thread regarding Travelcards then I would have suggested that the poster avail themselves of the information contained therein. Obviously, neither they, nor I,...

Yes, the London Travelcard is a better option for you if you are going to use it pretty much every day. The Oyster card works for me because I only go for a day at a time. You do have to pay a...

Sorry, forgot about the London Travelcard. If you are there for a week and plan to use it every day than that's probably a better option than Oyster. Since I am only there for a day at a time the...

Other posters are correct - the museum gives a good overview of the history of the Beatles and if that fit's your time frame, I'm sure you'd enjoy it. As previously mentioned you can walk from there...

Hello - I'm not Towncar but I am from Liverpool so maybe I can help a little.

Getting the best rate on tickets can be hit and miss, and you will probably need to book ahead. Just turning up at...

We were on the Silhouette last New Year and the vast majority of passengers were in formal outfits - tuxes, suits, evening gowns and all the trimmings. Wear whatever is comfortable for you but if...

We found Scott Bornstein, who talked about making your memory stronger, to be very interesting, as was Julian Woolford. Not sure if they fell under the 'Insight Speakers' but we were lucky to be on...

"Can't afford to send washing out' is (or in our case WAS understood). However, while the items lost were not expensive at all (four to a pack socks and underwear as opposed to designer labels) it...

I don't think using a laundromat on a deck other than you are located is in violation of 'launderette etiquette', but I wanted to advise of something that happened to us last month on the QM2. ...

We were on the Celebrity Silhouette this past New Year and the majority of people were in evening/party attire, possibly because it was a holiday cruise. New Year's Eve in particular was certainly a...

Many thanks for reporting back, and I'm glad the stop was worth while. If you run into Catherine and Anne from Liverpool please say hello from Cath's cousin. Enjoy the rest of your cruise!

Glad you are able to go ashore. Looks like a fascinating area to visit. Hope it went well. I will find out in about a week or so if my cousin was able to join you! Best wishes for the remainder of...

I will not be in touch with family member on Millenium until her return to the UK (I hard about the Petropavlovsk stop from another person with whom she had been in contact. Interested to know what...

Thanks for the speedy responses. I knew the ship was still scheduled to stop so the report of not being able to go ashore was confusing. Looks as though it could just be delays with customs,...
Millenium now...
Just curious... A family member is currently on the Millenium and reports that passengers have been told they cannot get off the ship in Petropavlousk. Is this always the case? I believe she was...

Just take the Chester train to the end of the line. The station is a bit of a walk to the town center but well signposted. The VisitChester website is good and has lots of information.

Not sure when the cruise ships will be in Liverpool but for those planning on taking trains from James Street (nearest station to the cruise terminal) and onto the Wirral and Chester, please be...

There is a new Museum of British Music in the Cunard Building. Not cheap (16 pounds per person) but interesting if you are a fan of British music. Next door, you can walk into the Port of...

We used Smiths for Airports. They were on time, reasonably priced (in comparison to rail fares plus taxi's to rail station) and professional.

NOT urban legend. Disembarked Silhouette 8 Jan. 2017 guests were 'requested' to vacate cabins by 7am. LONG CC thread attests to this.

We have always used scopalamine patches (advised and prescribed by doctor) which are NOT for everybody, depending on medical conditions, but have worked well for us. We don't actually know if either...

Our contractile arrangements made NO mention when we booked - or indeed up until we received our disembarkation information - that the time to leave the cabin was at 7am on the morning of departure. ...

That was very nice of you. As you say it was very quick and only took a couple of minutes. We were not fortunate enough to run into you (but hopefully on another cruise!) and only had the advice...
