    how about a cruise to nowhere.

    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

    Carnival selling 6 ships

    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
  7. 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..
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

    Will holidays be the same again

    I agree with HLM, we live on an island. It would have been easy to lock the island down from the first reported case. Anyone who lived here could come back and those that didn’t could leave the UK . Goods travel etc would be allowed. The other thing is, that if the report was right that they failed a pandemic test a few years back, they should have made sure that they had all the necessary PPE in storage should the need arise. I think it’s also time to bring back more manufacturing to the uk for the textile industry so that we can make our own gowns etc without having to order from abroad only to find that it’s useless when it arrives. sorry if I have put my foot in it.. 🙂

    Queen Mary 2

    There’s a report in the news today of a family in France who had it earlier than first reported in China. It was found out by retesting early samples.

    Annual insurance

    Thats worth knowing as I have mine through Bupa and they have decided to stop doing travel insurance so am looking for another company to go with. sorry about the bold, couldn’t change it 😱

    Over 70s

    Apparently PandO and bolsover suggest holiday extras but are not issuing new insurance and won’t cover anyone travelling now, mind you I don’t think any will when the FO has a no travel policy. If I was going on a cruise after this is over I would hope that all ships were extensively deep cleaned to ensure that there were no traces of virus
