, Not trixie, but just saw your post.. Sorry to hear that bentlegs.. Hope everything works out for you..

Hello Bentlegs, owd pal. I am so sorry to hear you're having heart problems. If you need medical help then please let them take you off the ship to get the help you need in Lisbon. Don't have the stress of waiting for transport - a flight, ambulance, hospital. You don't need that. I know you want to get home, but please wait until you're strong enough to travel again. Take care lad.

Thanks for all your kind comments, Got home on Sunday & was i glad, The medical team on the ship were fantastic but they let me go home, was in A&E one hour after getting home, It turns out that i have a slightly Dickie heart but not life threatening i also have conjestion of the lungs but that is the main problem so i am laid up in this lovely weather,

Drink plenty water and don't stop shouting for "Roy Darbyshire" as that's good exercise for your lungs!

So sorry to hear your problem,pretty worrying.
We got back today. We left a woman in Gibralter she fell and had a bad knee and hurt her head.
Then a few hours later we had to call back inCadiz to drop 2 very poorly ladies off but I never heard what was wrong with them ,quite a few people on the ship taking videos and photos.awful thing to do.it happens quite a lot..the Arcadia cough was going round.we had a great time ,
Hope you are on the mend very soon,this weather will help insure.

Take care hope Mollie improving.x

Bothimproving slowly , Hope your husband is OK,

Posted by: trixie (4912)   Report abuse
Pills only made him worse and violently sick so stopped taking them but he seems a bit better.

Our 4 month old great grandson had bronchialitis phnemonia viral infection on holiday and was very poorly in hospital and apparently it attacked his organs and it will take 4 years to recover from it so alway getting infections now.
So many bad infections about.

The Danube cruise I had booked for July seems to be in jeopardy, one of my travelling companions has had a quite serious operation which will take some time to get over.

Posted by: trixie (4912)   Report abuse

Hope your friend makes a good recovery.

Sounds like Molly should have gone in hospital when you did.

Hope everybody is doing well.

Went on my Danube cruise beginning of July, quite a different experience from sea cruising. Lovely places visited, starting with three nights in Prague, followed by the cruise itself. My favourite place was Budapest. No pictures to show as my camera developed a fault for most of the trip.

Posted by: trixie (4912)   Report abuse
Sounds like you had a good holiday Anne,you will remember the memoryís.
When is you next trip.?

We are going in January.

Posted by: Anne (3317)  Report abuse
Will be going on a relocation cruise with Royal Caribbean late in the year. Sailing from Southampton to Boston, New York then down to Florida with a stay for three nights in Miami then fly home.
Where are you going in January trixie, somewhere away from the winter?
Bent legs hope you and yours are ok.

Posted by: trixie (4912)   Report abuse
Yes across the pond to New York and Caribean 25 days think on Oriana and back.6th January.

Posted by: bentlegs (4234) Report abuse
Still not well. the only time that ihave been out ofthe houese is to the Hospital or to see he Doctor ,They still dont know what is wrong,

Posted by: trixie (4912)   Report abuse
You may never find out.but these things donít half take it out of you.we are not right yet and beginning to think we never will.so tired breathless donít feel like doing anything our daily walks seem to have gone for a burton too.
Nowhere near as bad as you Bentlegs but hope you start living again soon.and Molly too.xx

Went on my Danube cruise beginning of July

Was it a package tour you went on ?

Mrs C fancies seeing Prague

Can you recommend a travel Co please
Thanks

Posted by: Anne (3317)  Report abuse
Cordyline.....yes it was a package, the company was Imagine cruising, Royal Wootten Bassett. The cruise company was "A-Rosa".
I don't think I and my other friends will do another river cruise, we much prefer sea cruises although we visited some lovely places. There are several reasons not to river cruise again, these are mainly lack of facilities if the weather isn't good and lack of choice of food owing obviously to the size of the boat. The hotel and Prague itself we all enjoyed as we did the other stops. One other thing which was off putting was price. This ten day holiday cost £2500 pp, quite expensive we thought. The next cruise I have booked for November is costing £1279 for eighteen days. Of course it is leaving Southampton in November with three nights in Miami but you can see the price difference.

Posted by: cordyline (4506)   Report abuse
Thanks for reply Anne
We will probably stay in hotel in Prague and not bother with the cruise
Next week we are going to Chester for a few days -- so might try a cruise on the Dee

Posted by: Anne (3317)  Report abuse
Cordy... one good thing about Prague was the trams. They were free for oldies so we were told. Not sure if we should have obtained a pass of some sort, however we simply got on and off. There was no one checking.

I've only seen the Danube once and I was dissappointed because it was khaki coloured. Johan Strauss was a liar!

Posted by: trixie (4912)   Report abuse
Cordyline ,the Chester cruise is good also the Manchester ship canal. Was good.from Liverpool to Salford quays and back on the bus.also. Visa versa..
