Can't imagine webmaster reads all the questions - which of course includes yours ! Can I suggest you "report this question" as one would with offensive offerings, to bring it to webmaster's attention. I was going to do it for you, but you'd not thank me if some automatic programme consequently deleted your question & barred you for life ! Chris.

I agree with you, but this is not the only irritation to what is otherwise an exceptional site. The pratice of using surnames for contributors is very user unfriendly and the intense irritation of completing the same questions each time one makes a contribution are surely things www.CRUISE.co.uk could easily remedy.

Hi! If your still using steam powered Internet Explorer why not change to Mozilla Firefox? It memorises address forms etc & a double click on each line fills the box. It's also about twice as fast as I.E. hence my reference to steam power.........Regards Wilba.

You could always ring the Freephone & ask to be put through to webmaster/operator, as I have done in the past, & found them to be most helpful.

Good idea, it is rather irritating. If you do report it could you mention the convoluted way of replying to questions where you have to enter all your contact details every time you reply? Lots of websites let you sign up once and then that's it and it would be so much better if this was the same. Thanks Liz.

Thank you for all your valuable comments and suggestions which I have taken onboard. We will get the links sorted out asap. We do not ask people to sign in as we have so many usernames and passwords these days that we thought that retaining your information in a "cookie" would be more helpful for our regular users. Using the surname - we wanted to ensure that it was clear who was answering/commenting on who as some of the threads can become long. I appreciate your comments - anymore are most welcome. Glad you all enjoy and find the site useful.

Thanks for the response webmaster - I won't report myself now to bring it to your attention! On the subject of cookies, they seem to have a short shelf life as I seem to have to re-enter the information after just a few hours. Perhaps they could be reprogrammed to retain the information for longer? Keep up the good work with this site by the way - it is invaluable for getting honest opinions on cruise lines and ships.

Would it not be in everyone's interest if each thread were shown as a title in cruise line form as per your rival American site. This may help avoid the constant tirade of previously answered questions. It is quite clear that a lot of people just can't be bothered to read through the questions as very often they are asking the same thing on the same page. 'Stickys' would be great at the start of each cruise line page with the price of a pint, will me curlers work, can I wear me jeans on formal night & the like? As for filling in the address bar, my comments to Taylor, Loughborough may help some.

Are drinks packages worth it ?

By Peter Wellman

It’s a question I get asked almost daily, are drinks packages worth it and of course there isn’t an easy answer unless you want to go through your daily intake on holiday with me! Some people literally work out how many drinks they would have to have to get their money’s worth which is fine but there are other things to consider.First of all do you really want to be thinking about it every day ? How many have i had today, am I getting my moneys worth ? In my opinion no, I li...

By Jodie Baldwin

Jodie Baldwin's blog

The last time I stepped aboard Independance of the Seas was in 2008 when she was brand new and I was invited to Southampton for a guided tour on board. She was the first cruise ship I’d been on and I remember feeling absolutely blown away at how beautiful she was!So here I am 9 years later and looking forward to a 3 night mini cruise to Bruges and Le Havre on her with my my partner Mike and my 3 children! WE had booked a family ocean view room which we knew was right at the front of the...
