    Carnival selling 6 ships

    I only read pages 12 & 13 but it makes it sound terrifying.

    Apathy rules - or so it seems-

    There may not be any cruises at the moment but I’m still hopeful for our November cruise especially now that the excursions have suddenly appeared on the cruise personaliser. I’m not confident enough to think about booking any at the moment but the fact that they are there & that there are many new & different ones must be a good sign ( I hope).

    Insurance and Covid19

    Our insurance provider has now emailed to say that cancellation & curtailment of a cruise due to the virus are now covered.
  4. A pile of books, a mug of tea & a view of the sea (preferably from a balcony but a window would do) & I'd be perfectly happy.
  5. It would suit me a treat. I love sea days.

    So do I.

    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?

    Where to in our winter?

    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.

    Cruising after the 'virus'

    We are due to sail at the end of November so we’re still hopeful P & O will have started cruising again by then. We prefer the buffet for breakfast but if it’s no longer self service it will only be like when norovirus is onboard. I just want to be able to sit & gaze out to sea - the ports are secondary for me. Hope everyone’s keeping well.🛳

    Good news/Bad news

    The good news this week is that Staysure insurance now covers you if you’re taken Ill with Coronavirus while away on a cruise but not if that’s your reason for cancelling a cruise. The bad news is that P & O have cancelled their cruises until the middle of October. One day we’ll all be cruising again.🌈🛳

    Over 70s

    It was a new policy as our usual insurer (AA) went up quite a lot. The Staysure one also gave us 15 months for the price of 12 & as we have cruises booked for late Nov this year & Feb next year we needed to cover them. Assuming our June cruise is cancelled & that we get FCC we quite like the look of one in May next year so that would be covered as well.

    Over 70s

    We took out a new annual policy with added cruise cover last week with Staysure. It doesn’t cover the virus but my husband is over 70 & there was no trouble getting cover.

    Annual insurance

    I should also add that we’ve gone with Staysure Insurance this time & they are currently giving 15 months cover for the price of 12.

    Annual insurance

    We renewed our annual insurance last week as we have 2 cruises booked in the next 12 months as well as the one in June which we’re still waiting to be cancelled. The price hadn’t risen too much but it doesn’t cover Coronavirus.

    How is everyone

    Were also keeping to ourselves & so far all is well. Our garden has never been in such good shape at this time of year , the good weather having got me out there earlier then usual. We're still waiting for P & O to cancel our cruise in early June as we would like to use the FCC on a Baltic cruise next May. Our next cruise after June is in November so fingers crossed that things will back on track by then. Keep safe & keep well everyone.🛳 ⚓️
