Ingle - Answered a Question by Lowe (20 Jan 09 21:37)

I have always found that there are always quite a few single people on P&O cruises and there are meetings arranged for singles. Don't think you will be a fish out of water. On our last Ventura cruise in Oct we met a lady of 87 travelling on her own as well as a few others of all ages. Ventura is a very nice ship and we enjoyed it. Seems to me it was the passengers that were the trouble at Christmas not the ship. Incidentally, we are going again on the Ventura transatlantic in March...same as you?

Thanks for your prompt & reassuring answer. I was very tempted to cancel but would have lost a lot of money by doing so at this late stage. The brochure I booked the trip from did say it was 'the perfect family holiday' but other ships I have been on have been described as such & there never was a problem. I assumed all P&O ships would be of a similar standard but I guess anyone who pays the required fare gets to go..(Cabin A235 ) Lets hope the Xmas trip was a learning experience for the Staff and they have found a way to deal with unpleasantness on board.

Mariner of the Seas

By Nicola Milligan

Mariner of the Seas is a second generation Voyager Class ship and joined the Royal Caribbean fleet in 2003. 4252 passengers and crew costing $650 million to build she is going into dry dock in Singapore next week for a 10 week refit and will be then homed in China.

However, although the carpets were worn everything else was in tip top condition.The Royal Promenade was most cer...

Few Days in Rockley

By Gemma Coles

 As you will be reading this I am away. I’m having a few days away in Poole, Dorset. We travelled down on Tuesday evening and are spending 3 nights here.

As my mother in law owns a holiday home here they go down every year to open up the home ready for the season. Me and Jon travelled down last year which was o...

Is Cruising Getting Too Hi-Tec?

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

With the announcement of several new ‘innovative’ ‘groundbreaking’ ‘futuristic’ Mega-ships being built and released in 2018-19, I’m beginning to wonder if the cruise-lines are getting a bit ahead of themselves. Employing A-list global architects and designers to create all these new gadgets & gimmicks which promise to be ‘transformational’, ‘industry firsts’ which will ‘erase boundaries’ for the Sophistic...
