You can click the 'Forward' button at the top of your email, if you know the email address of the person requesting or wanting the list. Alternatively you can 'cut and paste' the whole list and publish it on one of these comment blocks. Have a go. Richard.

Yes you can still take alcohol on board. They only reserve the right to take alcohol from any passenger who is obviously the worse for wear. We were on Oriana in July and had no problem taking alcohol on board in our hand luggage.

You are allowed to take duty duty free on board p/o ships.drinks £2.60 for a pint of stella ,drinks no dearer than a local pub. also duty free prices on board for bottles of spirits very competitive. last time we sailed in sept.

Is the tax free shop in Castries on St.Lucia cheaper than on board P&O ships and do they sell branded cigarettes and drink.

Single Supplements Not The Fau...

Freddie Moser's blog

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...

Gemma Coles's blog

Well it is finally time for my holiday. I am off to Poole in Dorset tomorrow to stop at Rockley Park for 11 days. I am really looking forward to a break and spending some time with my husband. We have had a busy year so far and as I am heavily pregnant with our first baby due in August we haven’t been away at all yet this year. It has been so hot the last few days with the heatwave we had and now the weather is turning and the forecast isn’t great for our time away. I wouldn&...
