Please don't use them. It is bad enough on public transport at home and in recreation places during the normal week without going on holiday to have someone in the chair next to you saying, "I'M ON THE POOL DECK....WHERE ARE YOU? I and many others don't need that. Please please please, this is frightening. Lucy X.

Thank you for your take on the subject. I had not thought of that aspect. However, I have a mobile phone and would not dream of letting anyone overhear my conversations. I do not use it in enclosed areas and find a spot on my own to make calls. I too hate listening to the world and his wife's conversation.With regards to this I have not overheard ANY chat on these walkie talkies [and believe me, on the Alaska cruises I have seen lots of these devices] and as I would use them VERY infrequently, they would be used as a backup. Thank you once again and don't worry, you will never hear my conversations and hopefully, like me, no one elses.

We have a set of 4 that we bought from Argos with a 5km radius and multi band (so that you aren't crashing in on anyone else's conversations!). They are great for keeping in contact with one another without having to charge round the ship looking for hubby & kids. Means we all have a fun time doing what we want to do rather than sticking together as a group. Cost about £50 but well worth the money.

My day out with Emirates..

By Lisa West

Just before Christmas I was invited to Birmingham Airport to take a look around Emirates Airbus 380 while she was doing her very quick turnaround from landing to take off.It seems each time the airbus lands at Birmingham it brings lots of joy and excitement! Our first sighting was just after 11 when we saw her circling the skies waiting for her landing slot, the view from the conference room was great and she came into land right in front of us! I must admit I am definitely not a plane spo...
