    Where to in our winter?

    Good luck from me too. I just hope that wrinkles will be ironed out by the time we are due to cruise in April. I am certain that there will be wrinkles......

    Will keep my fingers crossed for you for both of them but I think February is more likely than November.

    With the current situation nothing is guaranteed but Arcadia should be safe for next year...

    We have two holidays booked on Arcadia next year. So hoping she won’t get the axe.

    The Nolans

    It was MSC Grandiosa, can’t comment on the program as I did not see it.

    No problem 😀

    The Nolans

    Did anyone see the Nolans go Cruising last night? I thought that the ship looked amazing but couldn't see which one it was except that I think it had the MSC logo on the side. Can anyone name it for me please?

    We're supposed to be on Iona in November to Spain & Portugal & again in February to the Canaries. I'm still hoping that they will go ahead even if we have to miss out a few ports. I'm really looking forward to seeing the new ship even though I prefer the smaller ones - my favourite is still Oriana with Aurora a close second.

    Looks very much like the HAL Maasdam could be up for sale. A lovely ship-but the oldest in the fleet [if not her it is one of her class]

    sorry countrygirl, jumped in without looking.

    Totally agree about the Grand Class ships. Been on Azura twice and probably never again - just feels so overcrowded to me.

    Yes, they seem to keep adding extra decks at the forward end!

    Buffets

    They used to be nice a few years back but now are no better than a supermarket own-brand frozen burger.

    Personally, I am not giving much thought to cruising this winter because of the reasons you state. I am due to fly to San Francisco at the end of January to join Arcadia but really doubt that will happen. I am not a Caribbean fan fortunately, so if this winter's season should end up being cancelled it will not affect me. A lot will depend on the future path of the virus and whether there are more spikes.

    Seems clear that the cruise lines who sail out of America and the Caribbean are scratching their heads about re-locating. The eastern USA cruise hubs are looking really bad right now and some Caribbean isles are doubtful what with hurricane damage and Covid19. Any thoughts....?

    We are on the Aurora in April [maybe!] -thankfully neither of us are into 'burgers.....

    Diamond and Sapphire would be my favourite Grand class ships, they were the last of the original design before they added the extra deck, so are less crowded than the later ones, and they spilt the midship MDRs in two giving them 4 Anytime dining restaurants, with signature dishes to reflect their different styles. Any ship faced with the same situation as Diamond would have suffered the same problems, but I imagine it more than any other will be wanting to prove itself in future, which could make it a good choice.

    Cruising after the 'virus'

    Just another thought, if the virus is still around by the general sail date [whenever that is] - how will ships cope with the usual 'throughput' during the day. Will it be a case of port-side passers-by going all in the one direction and starboard going in the other....?

    That was my understanding too - I think it looks a bit top heavy but maybe that's just me
