Onboard the New Queen Elizabeth

I had the pleasure of visiting the Queen Elizabeth last weekend. (Even before The Queen had named her).

This was my first time on a Cunard ship visit so I was very interested to see how it was on the ship.  Needless to say she was very spectacular on the interior as well as the exterior.

P&O you are fantastic!!

I have just called a passenger I booked on the Azura.  Unfortunatly his mother was taken ill whilst in the port of Cork.

My client couldn’t praise PandO enough for their service in helping his mother to hospital and the way she was treated whilst on board.  They packed her belongings up and everything.

Dining onboard. What options are available?

There are two set dining times on many ships.  Early dining (around 6.30pm) Late dining (around 8.30pm).  With these dining times you will sit on the same table with the same people throughout your cruise.

Attention to detail is first class on Royal Caribbean

When you go on a cruise you always take notice of the WOW factor and sometimes don’t notice the small things which also are included.

Tendering…it’s a bit of a mission unless you are savvy

Leading on from my last blog, I said i would talk about tendering.
