Welcome, Herr Thorsten. Your English, Sir, is excellent! A couple of comments if I may. We have had inside, ocean view and balconies. If you wish to enjoy all that the ship has to offer, you will...

Many thanks for that, Tonopah. We have been on six different cruise lines but never Cunard - we are booked for a crossing later this year. The more we know, the better we will enjoy the experience,...

I have seen 8:00pm for the departure on October 16th.

Indeed I do. Have never been on Cunard but am now booked for later this year. Enquiring minds want to know - is chatting up considered bad form on Cunard? My buddy was kinda hoping to chat up some...

How kind of you, Sir. We appreciate you joining this board and issuing such a warm invitation. I will be boarding in Hamburg on 16th October. I can tell already - this will be a wonderful,...
Well done, PORT ROYAL, we're all proud of you. I...
Well done, PORT ROYAL, we're all proud of you. I would like to think that many of us would have done the same. Can't imagine why anyone would tip in Russia with British coins. Ignorant peasants! ...

Now this sounds like fun! We were on Azamara some years ago when they first tried out a passenger choir called "High C's". (Yes, O.K. I'll wait.....) I enjoyed that. Don't know if they still do...

The cruise port is right in the middle of St. John's. Barbuda is another island, about 40 miles away.

I have always found this extremely annoying, cruise lines quote a huge lump sum and you have no idea what that is for or if it is correct. Every time I buy an airline ticket, taxes and charges are...

Thanks for the clarification. On re-reading my earlier post, that didn't come out quite right. Yes, I'm fully aware that Ft. Lauderdale is not in Minnesota. I was making two separate points. We...
Goodness, this surely depends on where you are...
Goodness, this surely depends on where you are and where you are from. Two examples: if you show up at Emergency in the U.S. they are reqired by law to treat you and argue about it afterwards. ...
"Full highland dress" would do the trick...
"Full highland dress" would do the trick methinks. I have worn mine on other cruise lines for formal evenings but not - yet - on Cunard. That's coming up and I need to lose a couple of pounds or it...

Walk out of the port, turn right on the main drag and keep going till you come to the bus station on your right. Can't miss it. Five minutes, give or take.

Oh boy!! There's some foul-up somewhere that is entirely not your fault. They have asked you to approve the change. What happens if you don't? Since a change of date is critical and you can't...

Feasible? Certainly. Risky? Quite a bit. The are no bus schedules. Buses are minivans, owned by the driver, and he leaves when he feels like it i.e. when there's enough passengers to make it...

There's only one way - taxi. Should be about 40 minutes at most.
Lucky you! Most cruise ships dock in the middle...
Lucky you! Most cruise ships dock in the middle of St.John's and in vary rare cases, anchor off English Harbour. There is no dock at English Harbour so it's a tender port. I would have said St....

We had the same problem, Germancruiser. We were on Celebrity Constellation. Four of us wanted a quiet drink in the martini bar but the music was too loud. Later, we had dinner in the speciality...

Don't know about you, my dear Sir, but my schoolboy days are long since gone. Wrong order is not considered a transgression any more. I hope.
"Nemo me impune lacessit" is the motto of three...
"Nemo me impune lacessit" is the motto of three Scottish regiments in the British army. Freely translated into Scots it comes out as "Wha daur meddle wi' me?" We have got annoyed when we see fellow...

Tit for tat....some years ago, friends of ours were on a South America cruise which sailed into Rio. There were TV News helicopters buzzing around and they only found out later why that was. The...

I think the disappearing beach might be typical. It comes back. I have seen Dickensen beach so narrow the water was up to the wall at Sandals. The sand gets sucked out, but not very far. It gets...

Beachlimerz is on Ft. James beach - right beside Ft. James. It's probably the closest beach to the cruise port.

Make your trip before September. I believe the exhibition moves to the new V & A in Dundee in September. Or else - jings! - go and see it in Dundee.....
