We loved the Arcadia, a friendly, child-free ship. Art auction seem very good if that is your sort of thing.

We went on the Arcadia March 2007 starting from Acupulco throught the Panama canal to the caribbean. Although we have cruised many time before, mainly with Princess, I was somewhat disappointed with P&O. The ship was fine but the food, in my view, was not as good as Princess. The flight, which was a charter, was terrible it was a Thomas Cook plane and to say the pitch of the seats was small was an understatement. This was without doubt the worst flight I have ever experienced and in future if I could'nt get a chargable seat upgrade I would'nt go. With regard to the art auctions, we went to most of them and ended up buying seven pictures. Most were limited editions but one was an original tile by the artist Martiros Manoukian. I paid approx £2000 including shipping and I note a similar tile is on sale on the internet for $10000. It seems to me P & O are happy if they get the opening bid price so I would avoid getting carried away with bidding up the price.

P&O and Cunard cruises have for a good while now offered extra on-board credit to serving or ex forces guests. Previously this just had to be added on request at time of booking (not on a Saver fare) and guests may on-board be asked for paperwork to prove their eligibility on-board or lose it (although my clients said that they never got asked ).No both P&O and Cunard have moved the goal posts and require people who book after the 1st March 2018 to be registered for a Defence Discoun...

Holly Crabtree's blog

Its seems Royal Caribbean have a bottomless pit of cash at the moment as they have just announced to spend another whopping $200 million in 2019. This isn’t to be spent on a brand new ship nor is it to be spent on a refit of a new ship. This money is to be spent on the re invention of Royal Caribbeans private Islands, revolutionising the biggest makeover of any land programme to date from one cruiseline.Coco Cay, formally known as little Stirrup Cay will be re invented to create what R...
