    Taxi's all the way, just reclaim it from the company. Some qualified people get taxis over like 150 miles I prefere the train, probably costs as much though!

    No they only pay the night before joining, but I'm travelling from Ireland instead of from home in the UK, so safer to head straight for Southampton a day earlier since there's more snow forecast in Dublin.

    Is your company paying for it?

    The amount of people joining this ship on the 9th is unreal. It's gonna be one major turnaround

    The only title I heard of was SG1A which they mentioned during our induction slideshow and onboard tour. I'm sure someone ele can confirm - if not I'll tell you next week

    Do they have an SG2/SG1B/SG1A structure at Carnival? I had thought it was solely an RFA thing.

    Worst case if you miss it, they will just fly you from Barbados to the next port of call - there are flights between the islands you know :-p

    Edit: Ok, I miss read what you wrote - oops!

    More likely I'd be put on the next day's flight to St Lucia to catch it there. But I'm being optimistic - it will work dammit!
