In all honesty in your opinion Flatbush Flyer. I find Gordon's Gin to be fine - certainly not "rubbish" as you say. I also like Bombay Sapphire. I had been told for ages that Hendrick's was...

If they ever do one, they may prove me wrong but I doubt they would give a free drinks package on a World Cruise. Think of the cost to them :eek:
But luckily for the OP, this will not affect them.

I am sure the big chunk of on-board credit will help ease some of the pain... :)

I too have had exactly the same issue with an airline - and yes, after inputting credit card details etc. With cruises, I check the on-line price and then call my cruise-specialist TA, who will...

I would have preferred that TUI kept the name Thomson but as they didn't, it makes sense for all their ships to have the same form of name.

Many thanks for the tips. Will check out the excursions from CMV when they become available.

Other tell-tale signs when you are on board are if you see a tray with paper plates and plastic cutlery outside a cabin or you see stewards going in dressed in 'coveralls' and a face mask! Pleased...

Formal nights for me are very much part of cruising - and something I enjoy. However, for my Thomson cruise in January, I will take a linen jacket to wear with smart trousers, shirt & tie for Dress...

I was on CC long before CN Phil - but as you can see have posted a lot more on the 'light side'. Cruise Critic Forum was virtually unknown in the UK back in 2009 and catered almost exclusively to...

It was a few years ago but last time I went to the Caribbean, cigarettes were cheaper ashore - especially in St Maarten if you are going there. Also watch out for on-board promotions, as in 2 x...

It certainly is within the Ts&Cs but I think why pax feel so hard done by is that other brands within the Carnival fleet offer much better compensation when a cruise is cancelled. Also, the length...

I don't think it is just P&O. Many of the mass-market cruise lines are avoiding Turkey. I guess Thomson still go because they sell land-based holidays there too.

It may well be that prices rise a little but I don't think it will be significant. Unless things have changed in the USA since I was last there, alcohol prices are much higher than in the UK, so...

Certainly did not mean to suggest that Dai but Pat made it clear she was going to make a request to P&O.

Re Dining Docco, Oriana has one fewer alternative options as there is not a Glass House. There is a Sindhu and a Beach House. There is also Al Fresco, which is an alternative for light breakfasts...

I agree, they may well be for some cruisers Brian. P&O do however have some USPs for some cruisers - Formality, lots of UK departures & set dining times. I know these do not appeal to everyone but...

For her size, Oriana has very good entertainment options. You have a main show in the Theatre, some sort of cabaret in the Pacific Lounge, music at different times in Tiffany's, Lord's Tavern and...

I think they serve them in the ship's 'premium' bar - so on Oriana & Aurora, that is Anderson's. From memory, on Formal nights they serve canapes and on other nights, things like vegetable crisps.

I would not be happy leaving a car on a random street and going off on holiday. Imagine if you got back from a cruise with all your luggage and the car had been stolen!

In answer to your actual question however, I would suggest the Crows Nest or - if you want a 'private' venue - the adjacent Medina Room.

Couldn't agree more with that statement! I took my first Cunard cruise for many years last June, having done many P&O cruises (and others) in the interim. I felt food on Queen Elizabeth was...

Hi Caroline,

I have not yet cruised with Thomson but will do in January! I did a lot of research and found the 2018 brochure quite helpful. From that, I can say that baggage is unlimited for UK...
