Take some Vick for under your nostrils as the BO of some passengers is shocking in the confined space of the lifts.

Heathrow to Victoria will always be better by train. Road congestion is a major headache especially crossing the west end to Victoria. National express operate a coach service costs £10/pp whilst the...

Our cruise planner states Classic package costs £30.53 and Premium Package costs £36.08.
Thats a uplift of £5.55pp/pn - with 18% add on should be £6.55. Maybe I am missing something ?

A whole Nova Scotia Lobster is available in Murano albeit there is a surcharge of $29.

Best is to look at the overall ratings for the cruise lines. Why is P&O so far done the list? Only 54% rate it as good compared to 86% on Celebrity.

Begging the question as to when you sailed P&O ?
We cruised on Britannia in December 2017 and the food was a disgrace, inedible in most cases so we had no alternative but to eat in the Beach...

Just be aware this tour run by H2O Visions is snorkelling from the beach not like Woodwind from a Boat/Trimaran.

Yes I have, that’s why I have switched my allegiance away from Celebrity. My last cruise will be a on Silhouette in November this year as the same cruise if a booked now would be 40% more than I...

Oceania is double the price of Celebrity so you would expect the restaurants to be superior. Not so, Murano restaurant on Celebrity S class ships is by far better than either Toscana or the Polo...

Agree, tables are definitely allocated in the order of booking. Food was excellent and another plus is it is CASUAL DRESS even on a Black Tie evening. That why we booked three times and only had to...

The smoking area is just aft of the hump outside the Cafe. Your cabin 6195 is further forward with the wind in your favour, it shouldn’t be a problem.

We were on the same cruise, glad you had a great time. My cruise memories are slightly different, high sea swell and very windy with low sea temperatures. Sea days was a battle to get a sun lounger...

If you want the best cabin location book sooner than later, if you don't really care - wait, the prices will drop.
Final payment is normally due about 90 days pre-cruise. Celebrity is biased...

We have sailed both, deciding which to choose very much will depend on the price difference. Celebrity cruise prices for 2018/19 are ridiculous, they have increased fares by over 30% and not value...

Believe what you like the system is too secretive and open to abuse. Whilst it is still discretionary I am happy, P&O can increase it year on year it has no affect on me.
How do you solve the problem of Sun Bed hoarders ?
Recent experience aboard the Celebrity Eclipse (4-18 March) was the worst we had ever experienced as all sun beds were reserved by 9.00am every sea day. A tour of the deck at 9.30 revealed about 15%...

Onboard offer seldom change, it’s the same as on land except you get a lower deposit and they give you the same deposit back as obc which you can use immediately or keep for the future cruise.

Don’t worry the Speciality Dinning has disappeared across all the Cruises. We have 4 cruises booked and it is blank on all of them. Web site glitch I would expect, not unusual. Suggest you contact...

It has been cheaper to book in the UK since the Brexit vote in June 2016. The price difference is significant in favour of the UK due primarily to the exchange rate that Celebrity are using to...

The ship’s course will probably be the northern route but on many occasions they will adjust their course if weather conditions dictates. On many occasions they re-route south before travelling west.

If you want a CHEAP holiday choose P&O, if you want a good holiday Choose Celebrity.

Yes the same dining packages are available at the same online discounted rate. Highly unlikely you will be able to negotiate a better discount - the 12 night package is $26/pp/pn, that is just the...

That's rather strange, we have bought dining packages many times when Celebrity have run their 20% sale. The lowest price of the 6 night Package was $154 - that's $26/pp/pn. The maximum ever...
