Hi, we are booked to go on Ventura on the 2nd Jan. and three of our party have second sitting club and two have been given Freedom. When we phoned P&O they told us that the other two wouldl possibly be given Club when on board. Seeing as we have been booked for nearly a year now we are not happy as we do not want to be seperated. they also told us that they hold some reservations back but surely if you have people who have paid the whole of their money and wish to have club diining who are they holding it back for VIP's. I also read another revied where a gentleman said that he felt annoyed that he didnt get the club as the freedom dining is very casual and that they had take all their formal clothing and could not wear it. Try to get it booked before you go as we were told well just complain when you get back!! (not good enough).

It probably wouldn't make much difference as it seems to be if they are overbooked for 2nd sitting you will be offered Freedom instead. Perhaps give them a call if you really don't want 1st sitting. My money is on that you'll end up on Freedom as many people have criticised it, we actually chose it and found it to be fine if you booked in the morning.

We cannot say for the ventura but we have travelled with oceana and obtained the second sitting upon booking. Once on the ship we spoke to a few people who had freedom dinging but had managed to change their dining bookings to the second sitting in club dining so once on the ship I would enquire at the club dining restaurant they may be able to help. If you go for freedom dining then you will pay a tip each time you use this facility on your onboard account.

What a week it was!

By Eamon Lau

Ok, so as you may, or may not know, I was away for a short break last week. It was very VERY welcomed and my wife and I had a great time.We flew on Wednesday morning from Belfast to Southampton at 7am. Things didnt start too well. I had a booking come in at 11pm at night and it took me until after 2am to complete it all (dedication you may say!) As we should have been leaving the house at 5am, my wife and I decided just to stay up, tidy the house and pack rather than go to bed!We arrived in a...

Many customers have been asking when Royal Caribbean’s 2019 prices from Southampton will be out and we really haven’t got an answer for this as Royal Caribbean haven’t announced yet which ship they will be bringing to Southampton.I’ve heard and this might only be a rumour but it could be the Quantum of the seas or the Anthem of the seas but I really don’t know which ship they will be bringing to Southampton. Some people are saying that we could find out in March ...

It`s Time To Grab A Bargain

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

February has arrived and, apparently, it is going to be the coldest on record. Traditionally this is the time of year when holiday and cruise companies hope we are thinking of warmer days, and planning holidays.Looks like there are going to be some bargains around, but not necessarily for people who leave booking until the last minute. Last week I booked a lovely cruise on P&O Oceana for some clients of mine which we both thought was a really good deal.Oceana is one of P&PO`s older s...
