On a recent cruise on Ventura, a couple on our table were celebrating their 60th anniversary, so we organised a cake, balloons and singing waiters. The cake needs to be ordered through reception and cost £6. There is no cost for the rest, just talk to the head waiter. The P&O "anniversary" cruises with freebies have been discontinued.

Yes its the credit crunch again! We were on Ventura for our ruby anniversary, we had £50 onboard credit, flowers and a lovely silver frame for our free formal picture. A champagne cocktail party with cake and a meeting with the captain. Fabulous! but with 300 couples celebrating anniversarys on this cruise, with onboard credit, it dosnt take a genious to work out that cost P.O £15,000 plus the champagne (REAL!) Cake, flowers,photo frames, formal pic. We were told this is the first time it had been done, and would probably be the last! We enjoyed it though, but what should be done (In my opinion) Is restrict Anniversary cruises to the most memorable ones. i.e SILVER, RUBY, GOLD etc. But well done to all who celebrate any in this day and age.

As Ingle says you can organise a cake either by phoning P&O before you go or you can organise it on board. We thought the cakes were very good for £6. If you want balloons on your table etc. as has been said this can be arranged through the head waiter, or again through reception.

New York New York Restaurants

By Stacey Williams

One of the things I love about going to a new city is all the new restaurants you can try! Now we weren’t super adventurous in the places but we did eat very well. Here are the places we tried out –Day One – We arrived in New York at around 4pm so we had something booked to save us looking. We had a table booked at R Lounge at Two Times Square. This restaurant is part of the Renaissance Hotel and is right on Times Square. If you fancy dinner with a view and not pay thro...

Sky Dive in the Sunshine state

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

It’s almost time for my annual Florida fix. I do like to try and squeeze in a trip to Florida every year. If I can of course. This time I’m doing something a little more than just the parks.I’ve signed up to do a sky dive. Moment of madness, impulsive booking, whatever but I’m going through with it. Tandem dive of course with a fully qualified instructor. I’m doing this jump at the highest altitude for a Tandem jump possible which is at 18000ft.We all have things...

She will have a quick refurb and some adaptions to the lounges ready to set sail as MV Columbus on 11 June 2017 afte...
