Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by wilson (21 Oct 08 15:24)

Plenty of water in the cafeteria and the restaurant and the water from the taps in the cabins is completely potable. You can buy water if you like or just refill your own containers as and when although they do not like you to do it yourself from the cafeteria supply point for health reasons, you either take a glass full and pour that into your container or ask one of the stewards. ....

Drinking from the tap is fine but as most ships make their water from seawater via a desalination plant it is more salty than 'normal' water. If your doctor has told you not to take salt or you have high blood pressure, I think it may be unwise to drink from the bathroom taps. Check whether the taps in the buffets are also 'ships desalinated water'. I usually buy water in port and take into the cabin. thats one thing they wont take off you !! When I arrive in S'oton I board with 2 X 5litre bottles plus a six pack of 1/2 litre bottles.

Ports of Call or Sea Days?

By Lee Johnson

After booking a passenger yesterday on a 24 night Caribbean cruise from Southampton return it got me thinking about the different itineraries, some that are port intensive and some that have lots of Sea days, as this one did.Having taken my first Cruise back in 2002 on board the QE2 transatlantic to New York I fell in love with the cruise experience during those sea days. There was always something going on, be that Ballroom dancing or learning the tango (I didn’t do any of this for th...

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
