The rule of thumb is that if there is something that you desperately want to do and you do not think you can do it on your own then book beforehand. Don't forget that people often pal up on ships and go ashore together thereby sharing the cost and friendship and, often, experience and knowledge. ..... Neil .

dont need to but you can book before you go the Precruise brochure has a page where you can fill in and send off otherwise you can book over the internet which I have already dont. You can wait until you are on the ship and book then but the trips might be full.

If you are wishing to book a ship's tour then do it before you go as the popular trips may well be booked up. If you go to the P&O site you can book your trips on the Cruise Personaliser. You need to either be a member of the Community section of the site - very easy to register - or you will need to enter your booking reference to access the Personaliser section. If you want to arrange your trips independently then you obviously don't do this in advance.

Good information but there is nothing to stop you organising your independant touring in advance especially if there are four or more of you, we have done it many times and we know the price and they are waiting at the quay for you. The internet is full of touring companies all over the world and you can get good prices but do make sure that their cancellation policy includes "if the ship does not dock then a full refund will follow". All the best tourers offer this. .... Neil.

Just have a look on the cruise personaliser on the p and o website, some trips with limited numbers get booked up quickly, so I would advise you to book these pre cruise. Otherwise you can book on board, If you book before you go you can always change your mind when you get on board.

Sounds like something that JK Rowling could use a title for one of her novels but in the real world the word supplement strikes fear into the heart and wallet of many a single traveller. We receive quite a few enquiries where people make a comment about supplements and how unfair they are, but is the cruise industry cashing in or are the supplements part of a wider dilemma? Take hotels for instance; they charge a room rate and it doesnt matter if there are two people in the room or one perso...

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...
