  1. Please do NOT ask for travel agent recommendations as all posts will be removed as contravening CC guidelines. Thanks.
  2. Clearly Britannia is now Ok and all are enjoying their cruise and OBC 🙂 I am turning off further comments to this post.
  3. Dubrovnik will have a shuttle bus to outside the Pile Gate. Easy to wander at will then. At Split you tender ashore to the old part of town - again easy to DIY from there. Sorry - not been to Hvar. I love that part of the world. Have a great time.
  4. As we still haven't left the EU yet, don't forget to pack your EHIC card and that it is current. When this topic arose previously, some people seemed to think it only applied if your were staying i the country and not on a cruise, however, this article says differently. https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/2019/06/-i-broke-my-ankle-on-holiday---but-moneysavingexpert-s-ehic-remi/?utm_source=MSE_Newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_term=09-Jul-19-50570822-10616&utm_campaign=nt-hiya&utm_content=7
  5. It will be predominantly British people on board and a lot more formal than you may be used to - we had 26 black tie evenings in 2017. Drinks and excursions will be cheaper and there are no gratuities to pay. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
  6. She was built with world cruising in mind - hence greater stores capacity etc.
  7. But with considerably less tonnage so deeper in proportion to the others.
  8. There is a whole forum on CC devoted to ports of call - check them out here https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/149-other-mediterranean-ports/
  9. There is a whole forum here relating to travel insurance. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/499-cruisetravel-insurance/
  10. Aurora is probably P&O's best ship for rough weather, as she has the deeper hull design that cruise ships used to have, rather than the flatter-bottomed vessels of today. I have crossed up to Norway in winter on her with no issues, although, as with any ship, it depends on from which direction the waves and wind hit.
  11. P&O UK is much more formal than P&O Australia. This was very noticeable on the world cruise as soon as we hit the Ports from Perth across to Sydney. eg, no shorts in the MDR in the evening etc.
  12. I asked P&O this question today, as since my gall bladder surgery I have not drunk much alcohol. They have told me they have a selection of beers and wines on board all their ships - subject to availability though.
  13. I have only visited the Alhambra from Malaga with Cunard (Caronia) and we were in port until late. I don't think P&O port times allow sufficient time to get there and back and tour the palace.
  14. There is lots more info in our Ports of Call forum - https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/472-mediterranean-eastern-amp-western/
  15. You may not have seen many because there is a separate area on Cruise Critic for reviews. It's welcome here too but it would be good if you could also post it there for others to read. Thanks https://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/memberreviews/collect/
