I found it - my bad, i am looking for 2017, not 2018 as per your screenshot!! But great price!
Sorry, I was looking at 2017 too!

I actually didn't realise myself either! Great if people want to book in advance and I think you can just do a deposit too.

Whales - Orca especially. Birds. Anything really. The Alaskan cruises do tend to talk about wildlife sightings. I'm enjoying photography as a new hobby, so anything interesting I can capture in the lens!

Saw some whales in Alaska, in particular in Juneau. The best was Antarctica by far, lots of whales, several different breeds of penguins, birds, seals etc etc. The wildlife was truly amazing. Flocks of literally thousands of king penguins in South Georgia, it was exactly like something out of Frozen Planet.

I don't have access to my pics at the moment, but this was exactly as it was.

If you can time your trip with the hatching season like we did, baby penguins are the cutest!



If you don't mind me asking how much did you pay for the Antarctica cruise? I'd love to go there
We cruised from Buenos Aires to Los Angeles last March including the Falklands. The wildlife was truly amazing. It definitely "makes" the cruise for me so just wondered about Greenland as it cuts out the long haul flights which my husband hates and is considerably cheaper than Alaska.

You've got to be careful tipping individuals. We were told that on p&o, anyone getting a tip has to put put it in the communal tip fund or else it's instant dismissal.

Not sure what your comment that 50 quid per person per day is high for tips is about - i was talking about the total cruise cost on a per day basis. Tips are usually on top (but not with Thomson), and seem to be approaching £10pppd these days some cruise lines. So a 25 day cruise for two could run up £500 in tips.
Thomson have dated ships with dated decor etc. And £50 pp pd for tips is way above the average for even the better cruise lines. Tips included sounds like a good deal but on most cruises you can tip who you want and how much you want. Of course they give you suggested amounts but it is entirely down to you how much you tip.
Be careful Thomsons is or you: 23 days is a long time in hell
We went with Thomson in December and loved it. It was our 1st cruise though so can't compare to other cruises although other, more experienced cruisers on board said they loved thomsons because they were much more laid back and informal than others. I'm sure this cruise was mentioned when we were on board as one to look out for as it's a repositioning cruise and they are usually good value?
grahamc2003
Great itinerary, great price but .... Thomson. We've been with most of the major cruise lines, and the only one we would never go with again is Thomson. They are bargain basement, with no sign of the luxury you would expect. Plenty seem to like them though, so it depends what you're after. Around £50pppn is about as cheap as you can get, but we get this price with traditional luxuryish cruise lines.
Totally agree, you get what you pay for! Would not be my choice.

Whats the food like ?
I see its 1 restaurant so do they cater for various tastes ?
We went on the Nordlys (Hurtigruten) but I think all their ships will be similar. Breakfast was help yourself - all sorts from cereal to meat, fish, fruit etc. Lunch was help yourself - several dishes to choose from and lots of sides, salads etc. Dinner was on a table with 6 others. Same table every night. Waiter service. Set menu - very good. If you have an allergy or something, just tell them when you book, or at the beginning and they will cater for you for dinner. Food was fantastic. Wines etc. expensive. Same price as on the mainland, but that is expensive.
Battery needs charging.

The more ways out of Hull the better...City of Culture!! I've heard it all now
Used to work in Hull 10 years back and to call it a sh*thole, would've been an insult to sh*tholes.
However, I'm led to believe it's much improved now, so before you knock it, I'd suggest a revisit.

I was really interested, until I saw the price for a single room, that's even more than paying twice at the base rate, in fact 4 people can go for that price !! from £5765 for singles, that does not seem fair. Grudgingly I could accept paying twice the cost, as they will lose the occupancy, but more than 4 times, sorry will have to give that a miss.
Just book and pay for a double cabin for 2 and just turn up. Pricing for singles are so unfair. I did this the other week with a hotel, it was cheaper for 2 to stay then pay for a single room

If anyone wants to pay for two I'm happy to tag along :)
Difficult to understand all the negative comments about Hull. Nothing remotely wrong with the place these days and most people who knock it haven't even been there. It's just a silly outdated cliché.

Infinitely better than London and the south east any day!

A night in the North Sea on a 50 year old Russian ship? I'll save my £29 and walk there.

I see what you mean.... oO

On 6 July 2009 Marco Polo called at Invergordon, Easter Ross, Scotland on a cruise outbound from Tilbury in Essex. During a health inspection by the local port health officials up to 150 passengers were discovered to have been infected with what was presumed to be norovirus. The number of infected passengers and crew subsequently rose to 400. Also on 6 July a 74-year-old passenger died of a heart attack on board the ship.

Don't think we can blame the ship or company for somebody having a heart attack lol.....these old ppl cruises always end with at least one person dead!

Good price. We are on the Oceana the week before sailing round the Fjiords and that cost us £579,

My daughter and her boyfriend are going on that one too! Hope you all have a great time - we LOVE the Fjords and Norway. We have always found P&O to be good, although all cruise companies seem to be cutting back a bit (we've found it on Princess and Holland America this year!)

Very jealous we did the fjords last summer with Celebrity and it is beautiful.

Celebrity have a rather better reputation than P&O these days - I think you made a wise choice. P&O (who are doing this cruise) have cut so many corners over the last few years you might think you were at Butlins. That's fine if you're a fan of Butlins - but not so good if you're naive enough to believe all the P&O marketing hype aimed at making people think it's a quality product.

my wife and i cruised with p and o last year, there is no way you could compare with butlins.

I'm afraid I'd have to disagree with you. P&O likes to pretend that it's a little upmarket. In reality, it's now very much a downmarket product thanks to all the cuts in standards imposed by the Carnival accountants running it. They love to cling to the very dated 'formal' dining, but making their guests wear dinner jackets can't change the poor dining standards.

51% recommendation is very low for a cruise ship:
http://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/reviews/review.cfm?ShipID=355

compared to other ships from other lines such as royal carribean or norwegian:
http://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/reviews/review.cfm?ShipID=282 (roughly similar spec ship)

I know the price is cheaper tho...
read the reviews they're clearly written by the same person the two negs who sounds like a whining baby
Hope any who book have a wonderful time
Drinks with meals included the buffet so you can get drinks for fairly long periods not just a couple of hours while you eat.

MSC are doing some good deals and on some dates there Opera trips are zero solo suppliments.
Went on this ship last July, first time cruising and was very good - can recommend it for first timers or anyone wanting a relatively cheap holiday and being able to see lots of different places on one holiday. Plenty to do and all crew were lovey - we were on an all inclusive package which was great value, but this is still a good deal. Heat added - same price at Planet Cruise which is who we booked through, both websites look very similar with identical details,
Thanks for sharing Bailey - voted hot xxxxx

Would be interesting to get some info on how the automatic service charge is distributed. Does it go to the waiter that served you, the managers, etc. I have worked in too many places (and quit shortly after starting) that rob the staff of the tips that customers believe go in their pocket.

Automatic service charges are a difficult one. If they are not added a good 30-40% of people who dine in Britain simply wont tip, a further 20-30% or so will tip very badly (3-5% of the bill) and the remaining 30% or so will tip a decent amount (around 10%). The service charge is there for the people who simply still don't 'get' a tipping culture which waiters rely on to live. (all rough figures from my own experience waiting-on)

Saying a waiter should be prepared to accept minimum wage is naive, you go into the job knowing tips will be part of your wage. Waiting hours are irregular (some weeks 40 hours, other weeks 10-15) and most waiters are on zero-hour contracts.

I do not know a single waiter who would work as a waiter if tips were not part of their job. Every restaurant I have worked in where the service charge is badly or unfairly distributed the staff couldn't give a toss about the customers and service quality suffered terribly.

I believe in giving good service to people I serve, if I gave **** service I would not expect a tip. However giving top quality service and then being tipped badly or not at all is frankly insulting, I don't work to the very best of my ability as a waiter for minimum wage, and why should I?
Ive often wondered why Waiters feel they are above other service orientated minimum wage jobs? I imagine they feel they are more 'arty' and actually better than the job they do and feel they the service they provide is oh so worth it.

Just a quick note re tipping in England which is different to tipping on a cruise ship but several people have conflated them. The minimum wage applies to waiters in the UK. It also applies to the attentive checkout staff at supermarkets and you don't tip them but they have more interaction with you.

The tips can add up to a reasonable amount.

$11.50 per person per day that also includes any children with you.

A family of 4 will pay $460 in tips for a 10 day cruise in a standard accommodation.

On top of this there is a 15% charge on alcoholic drinks from the bar and when dinning, also some on board services like hairdressing and use of the solarium.

Now the QE can take between 2000 to 2500 passengers, so 2000 passengers is $230,000 per cruise,
There are 990 crew, not all crew get this money, so let’s say it’s 600 that would be $383 each for the 10 days or $1149 a month. Somehow I doubt any cruise line pays it's cabin staff that kind of money.

Getting to Belfast might be more expensive than the cruise itself for most UK residents!

Bit of a stupid observation there.

It's cold anyway, literally! X)

Obviously this deal is aimed at the people of Northern Ireland which is part of the UK by the way and I'm sure they read Hotdeals as much as the rest of us do.

From past experience, the less time spent on the Irish sea, the better.

Oh how I wish I was closer to Southampton

Me too, a return train ticket is just under £125!


Check Megabus, National Express, Redspottedhanky, National Rail or all the many other ways that you can travel around the UK for as little as £2 a journey.
I wouldn't expect a HUKDer to pay full on-the-day train prices ;)
