  1. As long as you don’t take the meds ashore with you, it doesn’t matter. The authorities are not going to search your cabin!
  2. He goes to see a nurse to get it done. I’ll suggest he asks to be shown what to do and then if necessary he can do it himself. But I would prefer somebody qualified to keep an eye on it if possible. It’s not the actual dressing, more the supervision of the healing.
  3. So sorry to hear of your troubles. There is currently doing the rounds an extremely nasty chest infection which seems to last a long time and people end up having chest x-rays etc. Several of my acquaintances have had it. I imagine somebody brought it on board with them. Not really the ship’s fault, just the current bug.
  4. On this map, there is an insert box showing the port area in Portland. As I said to Fredziffle, just expand it on a tablet and it is clear to see the area in detail. https://www.portland-port.co.uk/public/files/Cruise 2018/2018 Weymouth Shuttle Bus Map for website.pdf
  5. And you can see it is next to a ‘P’ for parking, which is where the taxis offering tours wait.
  6. Anyway, yes it is the pier at the end of Dock Road, between the big breakwaters, by Castletown to the east of Portland Castle which is the first stop on the shuttle bus.
  7. Really? Maybe you aren’t looking at it on a gadget on which you can expand it to see more clearly? It would be impossible to have a more detailed map if you look at it closely! Try again!
  8. If you look at the shuttle bus map here https://www.portland-port.co.uk/public/files/Cruise 2018/2018 Weymouth Shuttle Bus Map for website.pdf there is an inset box which shows where the cruise terminal is.
  9. Yes, we have found Fred to be very good with giving free upgrades. We have had them several times. We don’t ask for them and we don’t get disappointed if we don’t get them. But it is very nice when it happens! i will add that we always book early on the full fare, not a last-minute saver type. I suspect that helps.
  10. Well, I got a reply, which reads: “We can wrap wounds. This would entail a cost per visit as you know”. I have never heard of “wrapping” wounds. Is this an American expression? Anyway, I can tell what they mean, obviously. So it sounds hopeful!
  11. Thank you everybody for your input. I am still waiting to hear back from RCI. However, I agree that whatever they say, what actually happens on the ship may be different!
  12. Here is the link https://www.portland-port.co.uk/welcome+to+portland+port which has useful info for cruisers to Portland.
  13. I have found a link to a map showing the drop off point Hope this helps
  14. No, it is not on the Esplanade in Weymouth. It is on the Portland side of Weymouth Harbour. You have to walk a little way and then cross a bridge to get into the centre of Weymouth.
  15. We used https://kefaloniataxiservice.gr/tours/. My main observation is that they are over-ambitious in what they say you can do in a tour on their webpage. We did the longer tour and it took the whole time but without the wine tasting or the castle and with an hour for lunch. It is a big island!
