P&O are one of the few cruise lines that allow you to take your own alcohol on board with you at the moment. That is one of the main reasons that I cruise with them, as I like to have a drink in my cabin whilst I get ready for dinner each evening. I usually take a bottle of Champagne on board with me for the first night also. Please do not abuse this priviledge! If the yob culture starts to creep in with people taking crates of beer onboard with them at every port, P&O will obviously join the majority of lines and ban the bringing of alchohol onboard their ships! I aways buy a bottle of wine in the restaurant each evening, and buy drinks in the show lounges and on deck during the day. My drinks bill usually amounting to about £200 for a two week cruise. So long as you are sensible about it and treat this priviledge with respect, I see no reason why it should not continue. Happy cruising.

As a season ticket holder i’ve been a little distracted over the last few weeks as we have been fighting for the second automatic promotion spot to the Premier League! It’s been a close fought battle with Fulham and it went down to the very last game...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...
