On QM2 recently we got white cotton bathrobes, but not until the 2nd evening. They were one size, so a bit too big for me and a bit too small for my hubby, but they absorbed the water well after a shower. We also found white towelling slippers in the wardrobe for us. toiltertries consisted of shower caps, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, shower gel and bars of soap. Also a notice in bathroom staing that anything else needd ie toothbrush, could be obtained via your cabin steward. Bath and hand towels plus flannels,all changed twice a day too.

Thank you for your answer to my question. I have had some of the extras you mention on P&O in the past. And we had bathrobes and a surprising amount of toiletries when we had a suite on Island Star recently, but because we were not expecting so much to be in the cabin I packed a lot of stuff I didn't need, not good on a fly cruise!

Thanks for the reply. I originally booked a BB cabin on deck 11 but upgraded to an AA on the same deck because I wanted a cabin with a bath. I've just checked OV website and and they are describing it as a suite rather than a stateroom but as I say never been on OV so not sure what to expect.

Yes they do have bathrobes in the suites, and the toiletries in the staterooms are molten brown showergel and soap.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. Very pleased about the bathrobes, leaves a bit more room in the suitcase for clothes!

Life as a Crew Member The ...

By Elise Otaki

The endless rumours about crew life always tickle me – working 24 hours a day, getting paid next to nothing and sharing a room with 184 other people. The simple truth of the matter is – you do work long hours, you are away from home for long periods and it is blooming hard going sometimes BUT you get a job that takes you around the World! Surely a bit of overtime is worth that?I have to confess that I was lucky – I joined P&O in the Shore Excursions department, so I auto...

So this week marks the Japan week promoting various different cruise lines that are incorporating a stay and cruise, with new 2018 itineraries now in place.So why is Japan a top destination in 2017 – Here’s what my colleague Holly had to say.“Japan had proved to be a top destination for 2017 and is already in demand for 2018 so why is this the case? After visiting Japan myself in 2016 and also with Joanna Lumley’s Japan airing on ITV in September 2016 it really is of n...

Tell me what is on your Bucket List

By Lee Johnson

Over the last few years here at we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...
