    New build P&O (unnamed)

    I still think P&o are going to have a difficult time filling this ship. Ventura & Azura are already too big for a lot of loyal P&O customers. I for one won't be even considering a cruise on any of these monsters.

    GAMBIA - WEST AFRICA

    I tried to do a tour with Tillys tours for my Fred Olsen West Af cruise. I was disappointed with their responses, took far too long and in the end I booked a ship tour as I had not heard from them for months. On disembarking braemar for the tour, I saw a man with my name on a board!! I hadn't...

    New build P&O (unnamed)

    Hate to say it, but they are cancelling cruises and can't fill the ships they have already :-(

    Braemar - West Africa & Cape Verdes

    Well, just back from this wonderful cruise 21 nights. We had a fantastic time, loved the ship with only one or two little dislikes. The theme was Choirs at Sea which we joined. There were nearly 90 of us taking part and we gave 2 performances at the end of the cruise. Food was excellent...

    Braemar - West Africa M1225

    Well, leaving home tomorrow and won't be back for 21 nights! Yippee. Obviously I have the ship to myself?

    Not surprised about that!

    royal carribean sale.

    Wouldn't go on RCI if I was paid. Too big, too impersonal for me.

    did anyone watch that cruises undercover show?

    Yes I watched it. I was a bit amazed that they had to pay for their own uniforms! What company charges its staff for uniform? Also, can't quite believe they don't get any time off at all. P&O staff definitely get time off as you see them going ashore in ports.

    Azura is not for me. She's too big, but you may love her if you have been on big cruise ships. It will be our first on Fred, but have done 4 P&O cruises. Last one was US/Canada on arcadia out of Southampton. Fantastic. People say Arcadia is like an old folks home, but that's a load of rubbish.

    Holly - that P&O cruise is very similar to one I did on a very small ship out of Falmouth with Travelscope. It was wonderful. Have a great time. What did you think of Fred Olsen? You look young in your picture but maybe that's not you?

    Ha ha Pam. You have reminded me of giving immigration cards out to Americans when I was a Stewardess. they would frequently say to me "I don't need one of those - I'm an American citizen". AND this is when they were landing into England! LOL You're right we're used to it in the UK, because...

    Hi Pam - I'm amazed that a US citizen can go to Mexico or Central America without a passport. Those are foreign countries. We would need a passport even travel from the UK to Gibraltar and back. Gib is a British colony. A birth cert would not go at all.

    Pam, what's a "closed loop cruise" - does it mean just within the US. I know here in the UK you need a passport or you don't board.

    best website to book a cruise on?

    Jared, try searching on The Cruise Village and give them a call. Always best to get a couple of quotes. I have used them 3 times.

    Ships Arrested !

    I sailed on the Athena 5 years ago when she was with Travelscope. We went from Falmouth to the Caribbean and back. I thought she went to a company in germany called Raisen something or other. What a shock for the passengers.

    Calls Cancelled

    Hmmm, not surprising. We are calling at Casablanca in November, wonder if it will be calm there.

    Chair Hogs Being Eliminated

    Pam, the way I see that is that it simply cuts out more space that could be used for folk who do not want to pay extra. The Retreat on Azura takes up a load of space, and when I was on board, hardly anyone was in there.
