Why not nothing to lose give it a try

len0269   Oct 20, 2016 - 1:16 am

Contact P&O customer service and ask them to ease your frustration then when you know it will be all smiles. Good luck

liane62   Oct 19, 2016 - 4:53 pm

Not got ours yet - but still excited

jessgriffin114   Oct 19, 2016 - 4:29 pm

liane62   Oct 19, 2016 - 2:45 pm

We always stay at Chilworth manor the night before - love it there starts my holiday off a day earlier - park the car there and a taxi takes you to the port - simply relaxing

len0269   Oct 19, 2016 - 2:40 pm

garyboldy1   Oct 14, 2016 - 4:05 am

Don't know for certain, I would guess at 3. That's usual for a cruise of this length. ☺

len0269   Oct 13, 2016 - 2:58 pm

bob1959   Oct 04, 2016 - 11:57 pm

len0269   Oct 03, 2016 - 12:53 pm

douglasmooney   Sep 27, 2016 - 3:59 am

Received mine a week ago.

sianikins   Sep 26, 2016 - 4:47 am

Okay thank you

garyboldy1   Sep 26, 2016 - 4:47 am

You won't need to put your toiletries in clear bottles then, just pack them as normal. ☺

sianikins   Sep 26, 2016 - 4:46 am

We are just wondering if we need to be our shampoos etc in clear Bottles

jessgriffin114   Sep 26, 2016 - 4:45 am

We are not flying we coming from the uk we are sailing from Southampton

garyboldy1   Sep 26, 2016 - 4:35 am

I'm guessing you're flying from the US? If it's in your case it doesn't matter, but if it's in hand luggage it needs to go in clear bottles.

sianikins   Sep 26, 2016 - 4:26 am

Thank you. Do you need to put it in clear bottles

mills147   Sep 26, 2016 - 1:54 am

Got mine last week. πŸ‘

garyboldy1   Sep 26, 2016 - 12:58 am

Hi. You usually get basic toiletries, but I'd recommend taking your own and just using those if you run out. ☺ X

panthernl   Sep 25, 2016 - 2:12 pm

len0269   Sep 25, 2016 - 10:56 am

moqui_girl   Sep 14, 2016 - 6:51 am

70 days to go! Has anyone sailed a similar itinerary at this time of year? Inwas wondering what type of clothing to buy/pack. We sailed a similar trip last year but in mid Oct and it was warm enough for shorts and to go swimming in the Sea in the more southern ports.

len0269   Sep 14, 2016 - 6:47 am

Thanks my provider told me this exactly as you said.thank you.

moqui_girl   Sep 14, 2016 - 6:45 am

I sailed in October last year and there were 60 children on. The following week was half term and they were expecting 600!

moqui_girl   Sep 14, 2016 - 6:44 am

If you are just sending text messages you are probably better just sending them from you phone and paying the per text price. Just don't put data roaming on (especially at sea).

len0269   Sep 14, 2016 - 5:33 am

Received today my e-brochure with the luggage labels. Not long now

len0269   Sep 09, 2016 - 11:35 am

Thanks will do   Sep 09, 2016 - 11:25 am

Wait till we get into port Len there will be plenty of places offering free wifi xxx

len0269   Sep 09, 2016 - 7:42 am

Only want to message my daughters to let them know all is well now and then

len0269   Sep 09, 2016 - 7:36 am

Ok thanks. Works out expensive over the length of the cruise   Sep 09, 2016 - 7:27 am

Meaning after 24 hours the next day you pay again xxx   Sep 09, 2016 - 7:26 am

No as I u understand it you have to pay every 24 hours it did used to be the case you could buy hours at a time but that changed earlier this year xxx

len0269   Sep 09, 2016 - 7:23 am

Hi icandieman

Do you know when you said 24hours does that mean it stops same time the next day or can you spread the 24hours over your cruise.


len0269   Sep 09, 2016 - 7:13 am

Ok thanks for your help   Sep 09, 2016 - 6:25 am

Morning Len unfortunately not you have to pay for it I believe it starts at 7.95 for 24 hours and that's just to browse social media think it's about 25 if you want to have full access xxx

len0269   Sep 08, 2016 - 8:15 am


Can anyone tell me if wifi is free on board the ventura


len0269   Sep 07, 2016 - 2:26 am

bob1959   Sep 05, 2016 - 12:11 pm

Yes len me and the wife have booked in to a hotel the night before we normally travel down on the day but this time we thought we have a change we go out and have a bite to eat in Southampton then back to the hotel and its not to far to go to the cruise ship as I see that we are going from the mayflower terminal

len0269   Sep 05, 2016 - 11:33 am

Staying at the premier Inn West Quay Southampton night before the cruise,not far from docks,arranged for luggage to be collected at my home addressing and taken to the ship and return, purchased train tickets to get to/ from Southampton,home station Croydon, only Β£5 per ticket(advanced fare). I like to do it this way so that I avoid any problems getting to Southampton on the day, i can then relax and enjoy. Anybody doing a similar thing.

garyboldy1   Sep 04, 2016 - 11:58 am

It's usually the first full sea day? Or the day after we board. But don't quote me on it. ☺

len0269   Sep 02, 2016 - 4:14 pm

I think it may be on the sea days if that helps.   Sep 02, 2016 - 3:47 pm

Does anyone know what dates the formal nights will be on as I want to book in the salon and can't find it on the cp xxxx

len0269   Aug 29, 2016 - 6:32 am
