BLYTH - Answered a Question by Clegg (18 Jan 09 18:06)

Our past experience has been you get told the ship is full but wait until the next day and go and see the purser I have helped get people upgraded before, but there will likely be some charge unless you are lucky, but try if you don't ask you won't get. I even did it on a ferry from Zeebruger to Leith and got us upgraded to a penthouse suite, fantastic but it cost £160 for that one night but we really enjoyed ourselves on the fruit, champers, food and TV, my wife saw the footie match she expected to miss.

You don't say which line your on but the standard answer when anyone requests a change of cabin, for whatever reason, is 'the ship is full & no cabins are available'. Your more likely to get an upgrade onboard if your already in a top end cabin, getting upgraded to even more top end. That said my experiences of Guarantee cabins have been very favourable.......Wilba.

The latest craze to sweep the airline industry is Emotional Support animals. Have you been on a plane yet with any weird and wonderful creatures.A woman tried (without success) to bring a peacock onto a United flight recently, reportedly claiming that it was an emotional support animal, which would allow the animal to fly for free.

 Can you believe it’s that time again? Some haven’t even thought about Summer 2018 let alone Summer 2019 and the cruise lines bring out the itineraries and prices for as late as Winter 2020. As I type 2020 it doesn’t seem five minutes ago we were celebrating the Millennium and scarely that now seems like a distant memory. Where others like and are able to travel on a whim there are families and clients that have different requirements that need and like to book early. E...
