Hi, as Mr/Mrs Bradbury points out the Med Essence cruise calls at Ajaccio in Corsica. When we visited in August we took a bus tour (I think it was about 12 Euro's - starts from the dock area) around the town which went a few miles along the coast. It was okay but nothing special, we then spent time on the beach which is about 20 mins walk away from where you are docked.

I would check your port of call are you sure it is not Ajaccio which is in Corsica. French speaking and Euros. Ship docks right in the town. Lovely pedestrianised shopping street just behind first main road . Small beach to the left.

Hi, also going on the cruise you mentioned but Ajjaccio is in the south of France not CroatiaI am afraid! Euros are all you will need on this cruise - hope this helps.

I mean an Aqua Theatre on a cruise ship! This extravaganza...

P&O Cruises recently announced that that would be building a 9th ship to join the P&O Fleet in 2020. This comes only two years after the Britannia was released and I am pleased to say that after quite a few problems she has become a firm favourite in the P&O Fleet.Hopefully P&O will take forward the feedback on Britannia but we are yet to see what this new ship will look like; all P&O have said is that she will be 180,000 Gross tons and carry 5,200 Guests. This is the larg...
