Sim - Answered a Question by Howells (13 Jun 08 18:32)

Sailed on Celebrity Infinity December 2006 from Valparaiso-Buenos Aires. Weather was excellent in Santiago (3 days precruise before joining ship at Valparaiso - recommended and enjoyed although 2 days probably would have been enough). Weather and seas were probably better than might have been expected. No really bad weather, in fact our worst could be described as spring-like in UK. As we went south the weather became cooler and cloudier but nowhere was it bad. The Falklands was beautiful and I do not think any British people should go to this part of the world without it being in the cruise itinerary. Sometimes it is impossible to tender because of bad weather but we had a glorious day and loved it. Montevedio and Buenos were hot. We spent 3 days post cruise in Buenos Aires and would recommend some time here. I have read other reports of this cruise and I have the impression that it may be better to do the trip Buenos-Valparaiso. We sailed through the Chilean Fiords at 5 am in the morning and did not get the wow factor I think is experienced if you sail later in the day as seems to happen on the Buenos-Valparaiso journey. Can recommend ship and itinerary.

One World Again for 2020

Today sees the release of brand new itineraries from P&O Cruises for winter 2019 into spring of 2020, including their 2020 World Cruise Programme. As with 2019 this is the second year in a row that P&O only have one ship, Arcadia, doing the round world voyage.Arcadia is a really good choice for this long trip as she is adults only, I doubt many people would want to take children on such a long cruise, and also has a good range of cabins and on board facilities. She is also quite smal...

P&O and Cunard cruises have for a good while now offered extra on-board credit to serving or ex forces guests. Previously this just had to be added on request at time of booking (not on a Saver fare) and guests may on-board be asked for paperwork to prove their eligibility on-board or lose it (although my clients said that they never got asked ).No both P&O and Cunard have moved the goal posts and require people who book after the 1st March 2018 to be registered for a Defence Discoun...
