    Cruising after the 'virus'

    I see P and O have now cancelled all cruises until 2021

    Venice to be a 'cruise-free' port-well for now.

    If it protects Venice I’m all for it. The ships are getting too big and shouldn’t expect to be able to berth.

    Oceana is now berthed in Greece... web cam is on if anyone is interested

    how about a cruise to nowhere.

    We are all lucky at present and fingers crossed we will remain so but some of us know folk who have died from this dreadful disease. I am one of them. Yes we endeavour to remain positive but it’s not always possible. It’s not all about reading books and gardening.. just my opinion but I await more backlash!

    I wasn’t being negative, just that if the shops are open you pay duty on everything... I give up!

    Guernsey was an example to make it duty free that was all

    That would be good as long it stopped at Guernsey to make it a duty free cruise. Not that you save much but at least you could buy some alcohol at reduced rate.. I wonder if you could get cruise insurance for it

    At least Bolsover are finding ways to diversify with normal cruising being on hold. I wouldn’t be booking a new cruise until such time that I can get insurance as mine couldn’t be renewed. Fingers crossed they can sustain the change.

    It’s just on the south coast of the Isle of Wight... the camera is operating too
  11. One thing for sure, I bet the prices escalate.... some cruise lines are already quoting double for single travellers. There’s also the problem of arranging travel insurance..

    Judging by doing a bit of googling there are some carnival ships named but it makes you wonder whether they should have commissioned something the size of Iona. I can’t see them filling it on a regular basis..
  13. As far as I am concerned I go with what the foreign office travel advice is not a US government agency. The leisure industry is only just in the process of starting up in this country and I certainly won’t consider travelling abroad by any means until it’s a lot more safer to do so and I dread the thought of being confined to a cabin on a boat should there be an outbreak on board.
  14. Whilst cruising has ceased for the foreseeable future there isn’t much to talk about one folk have stopped complaining about refunds and when they will get them, which the cruise companies seem to be doing their best. I look on the site but don’t log in as it’s easier to read the latest updates that way and don’t bother logging in unless I have something to say. Shall I be controversial and start a new smoking thread that will get folk going 😱 only joking... Fingers crossed things will get sorted in one way or another, hopefully one of these vaccines will be successful, and we can all start cruising again

    P&O -does 'goodwill' exist?

    Try paul.ludlow@pocruises.com I agree that it might be wise to start as Countrygirl suggested.
