  1. We are flying to Dubai and as BLJ1 is calling into Dubai still don't think there will be a problem but doubt we'll call in at Khasab
  2. It was much better when cabin labels were given out at the departure airport They were in April but not when cruising from Corfu end of June and it was a nightmare
  3. Are you sure it's not on the excursion list It's on ours for the repositioning cruise from Dubai to Aqaba to Palma in April 9th April 2020 Obviously it's not free
  4. I meant that as you have an overnight and access to Dubai they should be offering the evening trip to Dubai which is well worth doing - better than sitting in port all night
  5. Thankyou so much It's such a shame you are missing Khasabi as there is a woman nderful dhow trip there down what are like Norwegian fiords where you can see loads of dolphins If our trip there gets cancelled in April hubby will be really upset Luckily I've done it. at least you get your overnight in Dubai there is a wonderful evening trip to the burj kaliffa the weather will be great - enjoy
  6. Yes they will We got our last lot this year at £15 per 200 when the special offer was on in April on TA and again in July when visiting Turkey
  7. BLJ1 Sorry to hear about your cancelled stops. We are doing Dubai back to Palma in April next year and have been worried about cancellations due to the Iranian capture of a British Stena oil tanker recently, which has now been released but Khasab is very close to where it was taken. Maybe it is too expensive to have armed guards aboard or gun boats shadowing the boat (Cruise ships do have armed escorts when sailing past Somalia) I have read on this site that P & O have cancelled a whole cruise to the area although they were offered to switch to a Costa cruise. Obviously as P & O ships have a union flag prominent and are registered in London they would have been sitting (sailing) targets. At least you are able to get a refund. Perhaps a discount might have been a good idea too for the lost ports of call and extra sea days. Can you please advise of the cancelled ports and what new ports have been added to give us an idea of what to expect on our cruise.
  8. No it's not, it's as it says on the tin - Live aka lively The atrium bar can be quieter if you sit to the rear of the stairs either side I.e promenade
  9. Wi think you can borrow one from reception My hubby did a few years ago on Dream
  10. Pensioncruiser I would claim for your discomfort with the cabin to the amount you have to pay extra and ask for it to be discounted from your switched cruise
  11. As good as 2Intense, gosh they must have been good. I won't say a word 🤐 Promise x
  12. So sorry you had such a problem with your cabin and balcony Pensioncruiser I would definitely have expected some sort of compensation after paying for a Junior Suite. Glad the food was up to scratch but sorry to hear the show team weren't. What bands were on? Its worrying about dress standards dropping and cruisers who want to drink the ship dry Glad we're on Discovery next year and hope you can switch to E2
  13. Mahogany Bay is a specially built cruise port and yes you can walk around the shops, gardens and the beach There is a type of ski lift which takes you to the beach If this is your thing then get there early for the best sun beds Coxon Hole is the old cruise terminal and ships still go in there and you can walk around here too. (although a few miles away) We got a taxi from here on our first visit which took us on an island tour The driver dropped us off so we could have a drink in a bar and a little wander whilst he waited for us There are taxis at Mahogany Bay which could take you on an island tour too. https://www.mahoganybaycc.com/webcam.aspx check out the webcam and photo
