******* banks.

Chase locked me out of my account because I initiated a wire transfer to Chile on Friday. To do the wire transfer online I had to first log on to my account online using my user name and password (1st security check) then to do the wire transfer I needed to get an activation code sent to my mobile (2nd security check). However, this isn't enough, the bank not happy WITH THEIR OWN SECURITY MEASURES lock down the account and require me to call them direct and go through another batch of security checks to get the account unblocked. I mean WTF??

Yup you have just set me off there. A couple of years back I was arranging a trip abroad online. I had various tabs open on my pc, where I had selected the flights I wanted, and another for the hotel. I booked the hotel and paid by debit card no problem. Then I go to book my flights and my card is declined. Even though I knew the funds were in my account I double checked online and of course, they were. So I call the bank and they say they blocked the card for security reasons as there were 2 large transactions in quick succession. All very conscientious and caring and all that BUT by the time they had unblocked my debit card so I could book my flights, the seats had gone and I had to change my plans.

That sounds more like an Ark than a cruise.

How many passengers were left by the end of the ten days? ;)

May I ask what is the appeal of cruises? Even if it was guaranteed that I don't get a bit seasick if I went on one, I've still never really 'got' the idea



They give you a "taster" of different places that you may want to check out and then revisit for longer ( e.g. for us Venice and Barcelona for example).

You pay up front for your cruise and don't have to worry too much about other costs ( unless you want to book excursions, play in the casino on board or buy souvenirs in different ports). Entertainment is excellent and staff are brilliant ( on Thomson cruises anyway).

Food is all included (eat whenever you want!). There is always something to do (even when at Sea). Your luggage is taken off of you at the arrival airport and delivered to your cabin on board ship.

When you leave the ship your luggage is collected from you and you don't see it again until you arrive back at your London Airport.

Cruises are just totally relaxing!

Gooders 14-07-2015 12:12 AM

The cruise I just went on was on a ship with 3,000 passengers.

I can totally see why some people would dread the thought of being in a floating hotel with that many people (and for sure there are a good number of Beatleboys about) but we've taken to it like ducks to water.

We were 50 before we did our first one though - and it's not something we would have seriously considered before that.

Maybe when I'm old they might be up my street. As I said, I don't get on with the sea much though so I'd be nowhere near the side bits

saying that all cruise ships and cruises are the same is rather like saying that all hotels are the same.

It's ignorant and inaccurate.

Having worked in Asda I can shed some light on this... and its just as annoying for the checkout staff as for the customer.

The checkout operator must ask the customer if they needs bags and if they want help with their packing. Asking someone with a full trolley if they need bags is stupid, we all know that, but if you don't say it and you were 'mystery shopped' then you're in trouble.

You also have to scan at 30 items a minute, with the till recording how fast you check and the supervisor checks at the middle and end of your shift if you are scanning below or under 30. I had people get pissed off and shout at me, but what could I do?

Never understood the concept of going to the supermarket to but hot food, I can never figure out how to get it home hot enough to eat and always have that lingering thought that they use all the meat in store that is about to go out of date..

And on the note what ******* cretin at Tesco decide it was a good idea to have Indian food cooking away from 10am to 10pm right at the front of the store, puts me right off food buying. I cannot imagine the sales from the take away counter the negative effects of curry wafting around while you shop for food. And I like a curry! Even the staff at customer service moan about it.

Vendy 14-07-2015 08:39 AM

Cruises always come across for people who lack the wit or imagination to arrange their own holiday. I did have this kind of confirmed when my parents dragged me on to one aged 15, ******* awful. People put on weight because they supply food 24/7 and all you do is eat as there is **** all else to do.

Maz 14-07-2015 08:57 AM

I can imagine.

Some hotels can be awful, but you'd never say they all are. There are some truly magical cruise experiences to be had out there, mainly in those places which it is difficult for the traveller to reach any way other than by sea.

And there are also some wonderful holidays at sea to be had : they may not be for everyone, but that's probably a good thing that we don't all want the same thing, yes?

(As an example, I cannot imagine a worse way to spend two weeks than on a Caribbean beach : Sandy Lane is my idea of hell, (and it's vastly over-priced for what it is as well).

Chacun a son gout, as they say.

Yep, that looks like about 70% of the passengers on most of the cruises we've been on (Cunard excepted) - including us, probably. :)

You're right. If you don't enjoy theatre shows (which are always amusing, even when they're not supposed to be), swimming, sunbathing, casinos, the gym, visiting the pub, nightclubs, mini-golf, pub quizzes, shopping, strolling road the promenade deck and watching the seas and oceans slip by or rocking up in a new country every other day, they're really boring.

When you've visited every place you'd like to in Europe for lengthy holidays, city breaks etc. and you can't imagine finding enough to do spending yet another two weeks there, cruises are a good way to easily explore new places, as others have said.

Going back to the same resort in Spain, France, Italy or wherever year after year shows more of a lack of imagination, IMHO.

No.

Most Med cruises, for example, only sail overnight whilst you are asleep. So you are somewhere new everyday.

No - a 14 night cruise will have 7 different ports of call, typically. Our latest itinerary was Southampton, Bruges, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, St Petersburg, Tallinn, Gdansk, Southampton.

ExiledStirling 14-07-2015 09:57 AM

Discussions on the pay gap between men and women, where someone argues that there shouldn't be one only to go on and say women are better than men at some particular skill or task, or men are better than women at some other task, therefore perpetuating the very stereotyping that helps to fuel the pay gap.

The majority of jobs can be filled by a man or woman so no difference in pay should exist because of gender, only ability.

Mine seemed to improve for a while as I went to the falklands during a couple of summers and missed the whole season. Not sure how but it seemed to be better for a few years afterwards. Back with a vengeance this year though. Coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, the works.

We were 50 before we did our first one though - and it's not something we would have seriously considered before that.

Not sure what your comment highlighted above means?


We were 50 too when we went on our first cruise. We don't like the larger ships, to us they are blocks of flats on a hull. - That's why we have stuck with one good company that has smaller ships.

Yeah. What's that about? Are you really going to have a drink whilst having a dump in what is effectively a public toilet? Also, there's sometimes chocolate bar wrappers and sandwich packaging left lying around. People don't eat whilst on the bog, do they?

Don't be ashamed of this. I frequently enjoy a nice, relaxing poo whilst catching up with what's going on at Planet BBS.

Eating, reading, drinking a frappucino from Starbucks, whatever is all wrong on the bog as you're basically breathing in poo particles for the time you're there.

The only reason for staying any real length of time is if you get halfway through wiping and realise a second batch is on its way or you over did the chili the night before and the burning needs to calm down

Jack Regan 15-07-2015 08:06 AM

Why do certain people not know how to behave in a work toilet? In this country we don't bring up a load of phlegm and snot and spit it into the sink. If you have to do that then spit it into the bastard urinal.

Breathing in poo particles? How exactly do you manage that?

Top tip:
Chili/curry burns are can be soothed by placing the bog roll in the freezer the night before in readiness for the morning onslaught.

"Had a claim that was settled recently? Claim more. We will go over your case files and if we think you could have got more we'll take things up on your behalf".

Parisitic bastards. Vomit inducing.

A bit of internet or a game I get - nobody knows anyway - i am talking about people who make phone calls, and believe me, they do

A sure fire way to stop someone making a call in the next cubicle is to start making loud straining and farting noises. Especially satisfying if it's a boss on an urgent work related call.

Remove all the bog paper from the khazis on d-day to make sure the thieving pikey gets a lesson he won't forget in a hurry.

As long as you don't incriminate yourself by posting the details on forums, you should get away with it :)

BT

Got a call from them yesterday:

"We are ringing to let you know that we are going to start charging for BT Sport from now on".

"No you're not, my deal was for it to be free".

"Yes, but we have exclusive Champions League games this season".

"I don't give a monkeys, I'm not interested in the Champions League".

Upshot is that I still get it free for the next 12 months - I have never and will never pay for subscription channels.

People still insisting on calling this year two thousand and fifteen.

Its 20 Twenty 15 fifteen ffs.

No one, in their right mind, says the Great War began in one thousand, nine hundred and fifteen or man first walked on the moon in one thousand, nine hundred and sixty nine, so why do they persist?

No, it should be twenty fifteen.

Breaking rocks 16-07-2015 10:49 PM

As seventeen fifteen, eighteen fifteen, nineteen fifteen etc....

Didn't the Great War began in one thousand, nine hundred and fourteen?

Mini Burgers. If you are going to bother, eat a real burger, you twonks. If you go to an event, and see these f*ckers being offered, leave. The host clearly doesn't give a f*ck about you. Nearly always as dry as a nun's arsehole, with no room for a proper dollop of relish. Cheapest thing on the canape menu. Satan's snack.

Don't see the point on shelling out 5 notes for these little ****ers when I can get better at home. Related to this, Five Guys can do one as well. I'll never know what their burgers taste like because of their prices

Ambulance sirens.

Is it really necessary for them to have that ear piercing feckin thing blaring at 1000 decibels?!??

Took my colic suffering newborn out for a walk in the pram yesterday to try and stop her screaming. Finally got her dozing off when this noisy feckin ambulance startles her back awake and screaming again. I wouldn't mind but there was actually no traffic around at the time to warn of their existence.

Doesn't half feel that those behind the wheel are doing it in a 'look at me' way, making sure everybody knows what a feckin important job they're doing.
