Were not all like that! We like young people - especially with some fava beans and nice Chianti! 😂

Thank you. Enjoy yours too! Any tips will be welcome

Our ports are Bergen, Geiranger then an hour in Hellesylt, Olden, Haugesund and Flam. Can't pronounce any of them, haha.

We've never been with TUI and we're going with my in-laws which should be fun for a change. Also P&O didn't offer all inclusive last time we went so we're looking forward to taking full advantage of the drinks package. I forgot to say that the ice cream stall near the pool was fantastic too.
I cant eat ice cream unfortunately, but thanks for the tip.

I would like freestyle dining, just because I do fancy trying a few select restaurants, and I tend to base dining around what I have done that day, and what evening entertainment I fancy.

Stupidly I find early too early and late too late, which is a real first world problem I know 😂

Me too! I think everyone does, I would love a 7pm dinner slot, we had 8:30 last cruise and felt like bedtime by the time we finished!

I am of course, not under the impression that everyone is like that. But it would be just our luck we got the table who started the 'my horse is bigger than your horse' debate and Dean and I would just be sat waiting for the nightmare to end (not because we have tiny horses and are embarrassed, more that I can't stand that mentality).

Those who go on cruises will know the tables are very close and I have overheard conversations on the 10 people tables that make me very thankful I am sat on a table for 2

My parents are regular cruisers and have had some corkers on shared tables. They had an ex Yorkshire miner who got the hump when he found out my parents were from a mining community in Nottinghamshire.

One of the best couples they sat with was a young couple. The girl was a goth who loved red wine and the bloke was a one legged biker. They said they laughed for the entire voyage at dinner.

Edited to add that the worse one was a pompous company shareholder that tried to March my dad to the pursers desk to get him to relinquish some of his onboard spending as he thought my dad had too much.

We once sat with an elderly Florida resident at breakfast- he proceded to get out all his meds and lined them up. We thought it was going to be a fun meal. Turned out he was a survivor of Pearl Harbor and he was absolutely fascinating to listen to - breakfast lasted 2 hours!

Horses or houses
Our house is a decent size but we have zero horses to discuss on our first cruise next month

Haha - on our last cruise we did trivia with a couple who had a huge ranch in Wyoming!
