CAS - Answered a Question by taylor (21 Jan 09 21:46)

When we went on the QE2 to New York we were not made aware by the travel agent that we would have to pay on board tips for the staff and it would be stopped from our credit card at the end of our trip. We were very shocked at the amount stopped, on all our other cruises previously we had never had this happen. We always now ask if tips are already charged within the holiday price before we book because we prefer to tip as we find and not be told how much we have to pay. It sometimes makes the holiday very expensive when these amounts are added. Most cruise ships have forms that you can collect from the office giving you the choice to have the money stopped on your credit card for tips or you can choose to deal with it yourself.

A good cruise agent would and should be able to tell you but if you want a more permanent reminder I would suggest that you read the information section in the back of Cunard's brochure or on their web site. I am not trying to be evasive but there is so much in the small print and the even larger print that is so useful that no one should book without reading it (as I would suggest with any purchase of size). Regards. .......Neil.

This Is A Really Good Deal But...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Price is obviously a huge factor when booking and cruise or holiday, so looking through the deals on our website 599 per person for a 10 night cruise looks like a really good deal. A look at the itinerary though might make you think it`s a bit cold in this region in December.P&O`s Aurora is one of her much loved older, smaller by today`s standards, ships. This itinerary sets sail on 6th December 2017 and calls at Hamburg, at 2 day stop in Copenhagen, Olso, Amsterdam and Zeebrugge for Bru...

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...
