  1. The prices went up when they introduced 'All Inclusive' which was all they would allow Europeans to book. People moaned it was too expensive, which it was, and they dropped it in favour of the £99 Free at Sea deal. Et voila! prices dropped again.
  2. We did this cruise with family in 2016. Everyone enjoyed it. It's a great cruise with some great stops. How can you not enjoy Rome.
  3. Its a clever ploy by NCL. They're splitting the show between three ships and calling it Two. You have to cruise all 3 ships to see the full show. Genius.
  4. I've never sailed Haven or had a Vibe pass but I was just wondering why you pay extra for a Vibe pass when you've already paid for Haven with its private areas and bar etc.?
  5. I'd just like to point out that 'cheap gross whitefish' is the basis of Fish and Chips.
  6. There was no access to I95 at the time we were doing the tour, something to do with it being blocked off by engineering temporarily.
  7. I got off the Star yesterday (10th November) we were officially told of a "technical issue" and unofficially told it was due to an engine fire, this came from disembarking passengers on 3rd November. We received notification of the itinerary change by e-mail, in our case at 10:30 pm on 2nd November whilst enjoying a meal in Venice. The itinerary changes were that we would stop in Split at midday on the first full day, rather than Kotor at 1:00 pm, Split is closer to Venice than Kotor. Second day would now be Dubrovnik, this was scheduled to be the last port of call, but we would now be there for a full day, this is not necessarily a good thing. The next day was now supposed to be Bar to get our fix of Montenegro and also because it is a relatively short trip from Dubrovnik, as it happened we didn't get into Bar due to a combination of poor weather and the unspecified "technical issue" and so we carried on to Corfu the next morning. The day after we were in Argostolli (Kefalonia) this was the highlight of the cruise for me. We then had a sea day and arrived in Venice on time on Sunday morning. The two furthest ports of call had been dropped. The distances between ports of call had been made as short as possible. Interestingly the behind the scenes ship tour was confined to the theatre and the galley.
  8. I always take my own extension cord, mainly because there are no UK plug sockets in the staterooms. The cord that comes with the cPAP is plenty long enough. I'm also in the fortunate position that I don't need distilled water. I was in receipt of a new cPAP this year that no longer stores data on a card but uses the internet to send data to my GP this is done by using an internal modem and WiFi. So it'll be fun seeing how that works.
  9. No cans of soda included. They'll probably confiscate it. Yes. Your steward will clear the fridge if requested. I always ask them so as to remove temptation. There are never any snacks in it though, just drinks.
  10. Vans are an item of casual footwear, similar to the plimsoll or sandshoe as we used to call them. They come in a variety of colours, mine are black, and can be slip on or lace up. @bkrickles1 No pants! We call that commando where I come from.
  11. You could try booking adjoining cabins. No need for keycard swaps etc. Just open the internal door and swap staterooms as and when necessary, only use one keycard per stateroom to purchase/book things.
  12. I urge you to read the final paragraph https://www.thebalancesmb.com/plastic-recycling-facts-and-figures-2877886
  13. Perhaps you could tell me what happens to them then?
  14. I've deliberately chosen cruises away from the seas of plastic. Seriously if you don't think they exist then maybe you should look at some of the photos that do exist. Six million bottles from one cruise line, so how many from all the other users and producers of plastic bottles? Were are they going because they don't just disappear.
  15. Good move. I want to cruise on the Ocean not a sea of plastic.
