Cullis - Answered a Question by Allan (08 Jun 08 11:29)

IN answer to your questions, the following applies: Firstly car parking, If you have the free parking deal as most P&O clients, you simply arrive at the terminal, join the lanes for car parking, which are signed, your luggage is quickly taken by the porters and your car driven away to the park.All you do is check in, in the terminal. Next point, dress code. The dress code for a two week cruise is 4 formal nights, Dinner suits or tuxedos, for men, long dresses or ball type gowns for ladies. 4 informal nights, jacket and tie for men or smart shirts with linen jackets or blazers, trouser suits or smart cloths for ladies. The remaining 6 nights are smart casual,they even allow smart jeans now, but not trainers in the evening. With regards to luggage, if you are travelling from Southampton, you are free to take as much as you like, but remember there is only enough space under the beds for three cases or so.I trust this information is sufficient for you.

I'm not sure exactly what you were refering to in your question about parking facilities. The process is as Mr cullis describes below, but if free parking was not part of your cruise deal (booked through the wrong channels) then you can get exactly the same service but it will cost you about £70 for a week. If you meant what conditions were the cars parked under and where, then I can put your mind at rest there. They are parked within site of the ship, nose to tail like sardines, in a locked and chained compound with security cameras. Happy cruising .

If you go to the P&O cruises website and click on Oceana you will get a lot of information about her and be able to take a virtual tour of the ship. You could also register on the Community section of the site and there will be lots of information there. We loved Oceana and are sure you will have a great time. You don't need to restrict yourself to 3 cases. You can always put one inside the other and if necessary your cabin steward will take them to be stowed away.

Is it compulsory to attend the formal nights and have to wear dinner suits or tuxedos if so I wish we had not booked a cruise.

WE had booked a family ocean view room which we knew was right at the front of the...

Well its getting to that time of year when Christmas is on the forefront of everyone’s mind so I thought I would write about something loosely based on travel but also a bit personal to me instead of my regular cruise blog.You see I have had my pet greyhound Marko for going on 6 years now and he is a massive part of our little family. He is a truly remarkable dog and has done and achieved more than many humans could put their name to so I’m massively proud of him. As much as I lov...
