Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Wilba (24 Nov 08 19:16)

I think I feel a little sorry for the Smiths of Sheffield, they have to go through life gradually attaining all they despise and being miserable getting there. ..... Ahhhhh! ... Neil.

Just read it. It is as several have said, a wind up. Not a nice one at all. Think that they should be barred from getting a BERLITZ CRUISE GUIDE from the total garbage that was written. For the life of me I cannot think why such garbage was written. Havnt they got parents, grandparents, dont they think that one day if they are lucky they may well be elderly? Again I cannot see the point of such (A SO CALLED REVIEW) CANT BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!. (ALL I CAN GO ON IT WAS!!! A WIND UP) Anything else is unforgivable.

I agree, its way out of order, but it did make me smile as it brought back memories - I am sure lots of you can remember back in the 70's and 80's P&O passengers were commonly termed as the 'Blue Rinse Brigade'. An image which P&O have since long rid of. Smith is probably the sort of person that had they cruised in July/Aug with all the School kids they would have still complained that there were too many kids!

Do you think perchance the Smiths of Sheffield are closely related to the Smiths of Stockport? Similar "bloodstock" I suspect!!Cynthia.

Just take comfort from the fact that they are never likely to be on the same ship as you.

I see it's been removed from the Reviews so it may be an idea if the moderators remove this thread as the rest of the world will wonder what we're all going on about. They might think we are all as barmy as Smith of Sheffield. Peace on Earth to you all .....Wilba.

Thank goodness! That review was an assault on our senses. BUT! Smith is going to be very annoyed, so waiting to see what happens next! Probably another name, probably another ship. But well put ALL who commentated. (Still think it was a wind up) But all who love cruising whatever age, us included have a safe and wonderful time.

Fred Olsen and me! A match mad...

By Holly Crabtree

Holly Crabtree's blog

After recently returning form a 6 day adventure to the Fjords on Fred Olsen Balmoral it is easy to see why people have such affectionate things to say about them. Many of my colleagues feel the same way regarding Fred Olsen. It is just the feel of the ship when you embark it just feels like you are back home. Maybe this has something to do with the smaller ships so much more personal and so much more warmth than the larger ships.I sailed from Newcastle which was fab for me living in Leeds , o...

By Kym Hatfield

Kym Hatfield's blog

In just over two weeks time we will be going on our first family holiday abroad!. We have had many lovely holidays in the UK. Cornwall, Devon and the lake district being some of our favs. These holidays have always involved a very long drive with a car packed full of stuff! and then when we finally arrival there is normally food shopping to do, meals to be cooked and cleaning to be done. This year we all felt we needed a “proper holiday” so after many many hours of research we are...
