Strangely enough I often wish that some disabled parking spaces were designated for wheelchair users only, especially as I drive round and round a shopping centre (mall) car park trying to find a...

I doubt they were watching her, but they will be able to track some of her movements from her cruise card. When she went ashore and returned, when she used her card to buy anything and probably when...

Great video, loved the camera work very professional, and you're right Ventura does not look shabby at all. Very much looking forward to our February Caribbean cruise on my favourite P&O ship.

Customer service on P&O, both on board and ashore, I find is nowhere near as good as on Celebrity or RCI. On Britannia, despite several visits from increasingly senior housekeeping staff, they were...

I have tended to find that e-mails to customer service, if simple, are answered promptly. If I have had a "complaint", which is rare, I have e-mailed direct to Christopher Edgington, now I realise...

As long as it was a festival of pop music from the late 50s and early 60s, then it would suit me.:cool:

Now that I do agree with, on our recent Navigator cruise I asked for 8:30 disembark but they gave me 7:30, didn't bother changing it and as we entered the luggage area just after 8:30 ours were among...

I am just the opposite, I find there is nothing more depressing than a mainly empty cruise ship on disembarkation day. All the bars and restaurants are empty, there are few staff to be seen and the...

They generally dock in Southampton around 6:00am and if you need to disembark early you can opt to carry your own luggage and self disembark can be from 7 to 7:30. Otherwise request a disembarkation...

The main problem with missing Stavanger would be strong winds, neither Britannia nor Sapphire Princess have azipods so manoeuvrability is limited so it would be down to the seamanship of the captain...

I checked one of the Black Friday special offers that were being offered by P&O, the extra special low price for the 4 day Ventura cruise sailing just before our 35 night Caribbean cruise in February...

Tom, Just why do you consider 18 cans of larger, just over 1 per day on a 14 night cruise, to be excessive and yet 1 litre of spirits, which should provide a similar number of drinks to be perfectly...
Looks as though we have been hacked.
Lots of posts with "Chinese" characters purporting to be from Universities.
Clearly P&O are planning for a major overrun.

I don't believe that any cruise line will serve cask conditioned beer, which needs to be served at cellar temperature which I doubt exist in a cruise ship bar. Most beers will be served pressurised...

Spirits drinkers win again, time P&O was more generous to us common men who drink wine and beer.

Nov and early Dec in the Caribbean has always been the bargain price period, and if you are flexible about dates, UK airport and cabin location, then you can obtain some good bargains. If we still...

I have had Peroni, Stella, Carlsberg and Carling on draught on various P&O ships, the taste is identical and I suspect, a bit like petrol, it all came out of the same bulk storage somewhere.

Yes P&O do allow you to drop off your luggage early, 11:30 seems to be the time they start, so you could then get the taxi to take you back into town.
Or, although you need to vacate your room the...

Dai, there was no need to go TT, we were Diamond status via our Celebrity cruise history and enjoyed 3 free drinks over dinner every night. In fact I drank more than normal and ended up with the...

Although I do agree that it helped compensate for some of P&O's other shortcomings, but not really a walk away issue, just yet.

Recently back from the Canaries and Gran Canaria and La Coruna do not have shuttles but are an easy walk into the centres, Tenerfife and Lanzarote are berth dependent, the others do have shuttles,...
