Patterson - Answered a Question by Walsh (17 Nov 07 17:40)

My hubby and I did this cruise in Februay 2006 and had one of our best holidays. During the cruise we had a Wild West Night, a Red,White and Blue Night, a Caribbean Night and 2 formal nights. Wild West - trying to buy cowboy hats in Dominica. Red, White & Blue - buying bits and bobs in Antigua!! The age group was really mixed, probably starting at around 40ish. I envy you - it was brilliant. If you would like any more details, please feel free to as.

Thanks to Patterson of Bedlington for her answer to my original query. Since you kindly offered to respond to any further enquires, can you/someone please tell me which system is used to pay for goods & services? I've been told by someone who used a different cruiseline (not Fred Olsen) that no money changed hands and final bills were settled at the end of the cruise. Personally I would rather pay as I went along so there were no shocks in store for me! Thanking you in advance.

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
