    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...

    Artemis - Istanbul & the Black Sea

    We embarked Artemis on Monday 1st September, having dropped our car with CPS. Embarkation was painless and quick and we were soon having a well earned lunch at 2.30, having driven for 4 hours. My first impression of the ship was spacious and airy, nice atrium and for us, she seemed a large...

    Artemis - the Black Sea!

    Hi all Just got back from Artemis - 25 nights to Istanbul and the Black Sea. It was wonderful, although we did miss a couple of tender ports, Sochi and Nessebar - both too much swell for the tenders and looking at the frailness of a lot of folk, I wasn't surprised. Istanbul was wonderful and...

    The Black Sea - Sochi?

    Hi, only three days to go until we sail on artemis to the Black Sea. Still wondering whether we will actually go into the port of Sochi - we are sailing into a War Zone!! :( Sorry I haven't checked in for a while. Summer is busy where I work.

    Wine prices P&O

    Can anyone tell me the price of a bottle of house wine on P&O. I saw one post that said £18!!! another that said £12.50. Seems expensive for house wine.

    Cruise Baggage from Terminal 5

    Having spent yesterday afternoon talking with my British Airways friend who has just returned from a trip to Miami, taking cruise passengers to join their cruise, there must be a lot of very unhappy people who have arrived in Miami to join their cruise without any baggage, because she tells me...

    Ventura without kids?

    Hi all - thinking of going on Ventura in 2009. At what time in the year could we be fairly certain not to have hoardes of kids on board. I've not been on a cruise yet where there were any kids and we are on Artemis this year which is child free.

    P&O - Smoking?

    I've just read on another forum that P&O Australia have banned smoking in cabins? On all the cruises I have done, smoking has always been banned in cabins - that was on Athena, Van Gogh and Ocean Majesty. What about P&O UK - I do hope people are not allowed to smoke in the cabins, the smell...

    Cruise friends - how nice!

    :biggrinbounce2:Just have an e-mail from some friends we made on Athena on our Caribbean cruise last January. They are thinking of doing the Black Sea on Artemis with us. That will be a hoot if they do. I am getting excited already!!

    Cunard Sylvania

    I emigrated to Canada on the Cunard Sylvania in October 1967. We left Southampton with the band playing and went to Le Havre to pick up cargo. We then sailed for Montreal. 2 days out we hit a Force 12. Had no idea at the time what a Force 12 was. I was 20. Everyone was ill, but after 24...

    Cunard prices?

    :( Wow, Cunard prices for their cruises seem much more expensive than say P&O. Is there a reason for that?

    Artemis Refused entry to Libya!!

    Artemis has been turned away from Tripoli because of a brand new law saying that all passports must have an Arabic translation. Never wanted to go there anyway!! Travel | Cruise News | Artemis turned away from Tripoli | New passport rules | The Sun |HomePage|Travel

    P&O - Extra Costs?

    Having never cruised with P&O before, can anyone tell me if there are extra charges? Do they add tips to the bill and can you take them off. We did our own tipping on Athena. Anything we should know before we go?

    Istanbul excursions?

    has anyone done a private tour in Istanbul or done it themselves? I have found Viator.com who are offering quite a good one for $125 US for two people. Anybody used them?
