BLYTH - Answered a Question by Herd (04 Sep 08 12:51)

The Oasis of the Seas is still at the building stage it may well be a charge might be made but more detials will come to light next year, a bit early yet for them to have made this decision.

Thanks for your reply,i know its still in the building stage.........however if they intend to charge then i would expect to see it on the detailes about it now. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Being a highly suspicious person it is possible this route could be used to help offset the heavy burden of increased fuel charges all the cruise lines are facing, but hopefully not. There was an annoucement by Royal Caribbean it faced a $700 million increase in fuel costs this coming year !! Bill.

It's a small world. Another reason for charging might be that when this adventure type of action is involved your holiday insurance might not cover an accident so that could be another reason. I heard yesterday that the diamond members of crown and anchor the Royal Caribbean loyalty card which anyone can take up membershup, they are being offered the first choice of booking this ship.

I did give another reason for a charge and that it could be to cover users for insurance purposes. Most insurances would not cover rock wall climbing as a normal safe pursuit so it could be this might be a reason in case someone has an accident. I think I read somewhere either a guest climbing or ice skating and they badly hurt themselves and their insurance would not cover such an incident but time will tell.

Sadly they are going down the slippery slope of pile them in and entice with a few aparrent attractions that all will have to pay for. They seem to think that big is best and will learn taht not everyone likes to be a number. Charging for extras is a difficult balance but when you feature items such as the rock wall then charge it is misleading.

Ports of Call or Sea Days?

By Lee Johnson

After booking a passenger yesterday on a 24 night Caribbean cruise from Southampton return it got me thinking about the different itineraries, some that are port intensive and some that have lots of Sea days, as this one did.Having taken my first Cruise back in 2002 on board the QE2 transatlantic to New York I fell in love with the cruise experience during those sea days. There was always something going on, be that Ballroom dancing or learning the tango (I didn’t do any of this for th...

Adonia back with P&O

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...
