Glowing report for P&O…this customer is impressed!!

After my last report from a customer of mine on a recent P&O cruise that had left them feeling very disappointed , this report followed shortly after, from another of my regular customers. These customers couldn’t have disagreed more and in fact had nothing but praise and positive feedback from their recent P&O experience.

It’s holiday time…..

and this time we’re flying off to Menorca. As you probably know from previous blogs Menorca is one of my favourite places having worked there as a holiday rep in my younger days. We went as a family last year for the first time and we had such an amazing holiday we’re going back with my parents and my sister and her family. It’s going to be the first time we have all been on holiday together with the children and we’re all really excited, Sofia will have her two cousins to play with so she is especially excited.

MSC’s Flexi dining….is it really what it seems?

MSC’s Flexi dining isn’t quite as “flexible” as it seems…

Usually if you book the flexible dining option for your cruise, for example Freedom with P&O, or My Time with Royal Caribbean or Anytime with Princess, then it means just that. You can arrive to the main dining room whenever you choose, of course between the hours they are open, usually from around 6pm until 9pm. It means you aren’t restricted to a set time to arrive for your evening meal and you can dine at different times each evening on your cruise.

Dress code….what dress code???

No matter which cruise line you choose you will find there is a dress code some more formal than others, some more casual. As a cruise specialist it’s something I talk about every day, and I come across lots of passengers who love to dress up and feel it’s part of their cruise holiday. I also speak to others who really don’t want to dress up and want to dress casually throughout their cruise.

For all those families out there…

This week I have seen an increase in calls from families looking to book their cruise for the summer holidays, what better way to holiday as a family than a cruise! I have spoken to different families with a variety of requests for family cabins, balcony cabins, cabins close to each other….and all looking for that last minute great deal! I have to be honest and say the majority of them have not got what they wanted and the reason……they have left it too late.
