Not for general food but yes you’re right, drinks and 15% extra for tips on that bill and also visits to a speciality restaurant, the Spa health and beauty treatments, ships excursions and tips for the escorts, gratuities, laundry, sometimes the shuttle bus ashore, your personal expenses whilst ashore, the golf professionals fees if you use him and the charge for using the golf simulator if it is in operation. There are probably several I have forgotten so allow some extra for these……it’s worth every penny….Nei.

All food including room service is free unless you want to upgrade to todd english. tea. coffee, squash and water is free on deck 7 in the kings court. otherwise the bars are cheap enough (no duty to pay and all in dollars). there are free self service laundrettes dotted around the ship. spa is cheap and with plenty of choices of treatments (go on spoil the missus!). you can pull out of the tips by going to the pursers office once on board and they will remove from the list. very easy and no questions asked. the ship excursions are cheap but to be honest if you are doing the caribbean don't bother and just hire a taxi once you are ashore. read my recent review on this website.

Rocky Mountaineer Part Three

By Alana Mills

Kamloops to Jasper.This morning we left for the station early again as the train was leaving at 7.15am.Today I am experiencing the Silver Leaf Service. The Silver Leaf carriages are a single storey carriage but have large panoramic windows with an additional curved glass panel as the roof curves although the centre of the roof is solid unlike on the Gold Leaf. The windows allow you to see the scenery well so dont worry about missing out.The seats were again spacious and comfortable. They are...

P&O Smarten up the passengers!...

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

No doubt you’ve seen the latest notification from P&O outlining their new Dress Code, and its causing some controversy I can tell you!No more ‘questionable’ slogans or images on clothing, no Fancy Dress – only permitted on ‘Theme Nights’, and only what P&O deem suitable. No Denim, Football shirts after 6pm. This type of outerwear will be confined to your cabins! (No mention of Rugby or other sports?) May need more clarification P&O, as wh...
