Drinks maybe a bit more expensive than a back street café but still only a fraction of what you pay for the same in a café in St Marks in Venice, that is what you call extortionate if not day light...

If they keep the tradition of ships names ending in 'A' then I guess Jura.

You are assuming they do pay the same in envelopes. Am sure many may do but having overhead conversations some withdraw the AG to reduce their spend.

Another reason to have it added to the cost...

Out of curiosity, when someone removes the AG how then do they decide how much to give the CS and the MDR waiters etc. Or do these people know how PandO portion the AG between the staff that it...

Couldn't agree more, would not be the first time that trains have been running in the morning but on strike in the afternoon! I wouldn't trust Italian trains to get me back to catch a cruise ship.

Completely agree, been on both ships in smooth and rough seas and never thought one was better or worse than the other.

In .a few years Cunard will have an additional ship to fill, diluting the dress code may be a way of encouraging a stream of passengers to cruise with Cunard who may not have done so in the past....

IMO a large number of people are assuming there will be people who will be happy to sail Cunard with a relaxed dress code than they would have been under the old code.

Can someone explain to me...

If the F & C Office advise against all travel and a person does travel there is their travel insurance not then invalidated? However if that advise was issued there would surely be no way P and O...

Could you use them to pick up from home if you are waiting for your stateroom number to be advised last minute or even only when you arrive at embarkation?

Oh DaiB you really are a turn. Think you need to look at your responses on here and on other threads to see who is aggressive.

My original post was asking if anyone one had experience of the use...

MMMM such a silly suggestion that P and O have/are using it or maybe you are saying the friends who experienced this system on a P and O ship are lying. Also, as has been said, other cruise lines are...

Sorry to disappoint you but have tendered many, many times on various lines and have always felt that it could be made so much easier if such a device was used, glad to see that it now is being used...

Looks like you are wrong as this method has been used on both Cunard and Celebrity as other replies have advised.

Sorry, but do you mean with a 'board' or without the 'board'.

I'm guessing it is the latter but I have my fingers crossed for the former, lol.
Boarding a tender
Have been told by someone on a P and O cruise last year that a 'board' (their word not mine) was placed to cover the gap between the ship and the tender to aid boarding and exiting the tender. Is...

Let me be clear by pontoon I mean the hydraulic platform opened from the hull. The word 'board' was the word used by the person who experienced the procedure and as her mother is rather elderly...
Boarding a tender
A friend has advised that on their P & O cruise a board was placed between the pontoon and the tender thus covering the gap between them both and making it easier and simpler to board and exit the...

In a reply to a thread yesterday he said he was unlikely to cruise again, or at least cruise with Cunard again!
No credit card charges
Has anyone paid by credit card since the change to the law? Was a 'service charge' applied to take over from the credit card surcharge or were no 'extras' applied?

Thanks for all the replies, I appreciate your time.

Just one thought about the Ageas Hilton is that we leave our car at the hotel and just wonder how secure it would be if there were a cricket...
