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.

A Port guide to Le Havre

By Trevor Smith

I’ve done a couple of cruises now that visit Le Havre but on both occasions, I chose to stay on the ship and enjoy the facilities there. Next time I think I will get off and explore, weather permitting. Here is what I missed and what you could do when visiting this lovely French Town.A Taste Of Normandy Unlike the rest of France Normandy is blanketed in apple orchards instead of vineyards. For centuries these apples have been used to make a bubbly fermented cider and distilling that cid...

Me, my husband and my two children have just returned from a long weekend away in Southampton and on the Celebrity EclipseThe cruise was only two nights so I though to extend our little holiday by spending two nights in Southampton before the sailing and take them to a theme park. So we took them to Poulton Park which I highly recommend to families with young children. Great for 2 years old and up to the age of 6 yrs. Here we saw Peppa pig at Peppa pig’s world where all the themed attra...

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...
