BA allow 23 kg in hand luggage, but the case must be of the approved size, so in reality it would be impossible to achieve the allowed allowance, unless you were packing gold bars!

Not only 'cheap' but when we booked we got obc that amounted to almost 20% of the fare.

How is £4 cheaper than the £2.09 I pay? If a pub charged P&O prices round here it would go out of business in a month..

Which, to be fair, is decent price for a cruise ship. Still twice as expensive as my local mind!

My local charges £2.09 for a pint of Ruddles, and £9 for a bottle of Hardys, so can we at least agree that it cannot be claimed that P&O prices are the same as UK pub prices . Cheaper than other...

Well, last year we took a bottle of wine each aboard the Island Princess, plus a further 4 bottles that we paid $15 corkage each for, so not sure why you are so vehement in your totally incorrect...

I'd just say that P&O bar prices are reasonable compared to other lines, but are twice as much as my local, so please no more comments that on board prices are the same as pub prices.

P&O have made no mention as to where to pack your 1 litre, certainly when embarking in Southampton. I assume anyone packing drink in their main suitcase will have to go to the 'naughty room' to...

I think they are still selling alcohol for on board consumption! Not much point having bars if you can't drink on board.
