  1. I didn't see any 'trouble' back in 2012 when I did this trip, all I can remember is a number of younger passengers feeling ill on the coach back to Ijmuiden, having over-indulged in certain substances whilst in Amsterdam, and seeing a lady walking around the ship in a 'Tigger' onesie...! However, there was no free bar on my trip, so I'm not sure what the consequences of this might be!
  2. I think they just re-posted last year's page, with a pre registration bit below. As others have said, no doubt a marketing ploy. It worked on me as I've pre-registered ;). It'll be interesting to see which ship it ship it is, not sailed on either of them for a few years.
  3. I don't know about that. Yes, in the earlier days maybe, the restaurants were quite up-market, but by the end both the food and service had declined dramatically, in my opinion. The crew appeared demoralised and passengers just an inconvenience to them. I'm sure BF will have improved things in that respect.
  4. I have to say the prospect of some of my favourite ships being around for several years yet is a very welcome one and not something I think many of us could have predicted a few years back?
  5. DFDS usually offer a new year trip to Amsterdam. I did this back in 2012 and it was a fun affair...!
  6. Thanks a lot. Maybe, but I remember P&O stating at the time that this was about potential changes to UK legislation rather than European regulations. If it were about EU law, why have two ships under the Dutch flag? Stena Line have plenty of UK-flagged ships, including the competing Stena Britannica, and all of P&O's fleet at Dover is UK-flagged. It just seems a really cynical thing to do to me and I don't like it one bit.
