  1. Talk to Citizens Advice. Before using the small claims procedure you will need to write a 'letter before claim' (https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/law-and-courts/legal-system/small-claims/making-a-small-claim), which the CA will be able to help you with.
  2. I thought this was only for cruises that sail out of US ports.
  3. Have you checked the UK website? I did a mock booking this morning, on the UK site, and it showed available accessible cabins.
  4. If McD's can't get my order right then I won't hold my breath that RCI will get my order right.
  5. Hi, we use Mobility at Sea to hire a hoist, every time we cruise. We have never had problems with Mobility at Sea. We have used them for 5 - 6 years twice a year. My Dad hired his first scooter from them in May 2019. We had no idea which scooter would be suitable or which would fit in his cabin, Dad was in a normal cabin. Mobility at Sea recommended which scooter, a folding scooter in our case, would be best for him and which would fit in his cabin. As my Dad had never used a scooter he was asked to meet a member of their team in the terminal on embarkation day, at a prearranged time. The gentleman spent about 10 minutes showing both my Son and Dad how to use the scooter. It was my idea that my son was shown how to use and fold the scooter, just in case my Dad forgot as he was feeling nervous about using a scooter for the first time. The gentleman was quite willing to spent as much time as we needed for my Dad to feel comfortable using and folding the scooter. My dad hired a scooter from them again in October 2019. This time the scooter was waiting for him in his cabin. On both occasions my Dad had to leave the scooter in his cabin at the end of the cruise. Also on both occasions Mobility at Sea rang my Dad up roughly a week before he was due to sail to confirm his sailing details; Ship; Cabin Number etc. I would recommend Mobility at Sea but I'm sorry I can not help you with their prices, as I only know roughly how much it costs to hire a hoist (approximately £250 for 14 nights).
  6. If you did not want to be 'that guy' you would not have posted your last comment.
  7. A certain TA chain (T) may have some shops open next week. The shops will be operating as a closed opening system. The staff will be in the store but customers are not allowed in, everything has to be via email or phone. The staff member I was talking to stated 'that whilst working at home the staff do not have access to emails sent to store'. I'm not sure if this info helps you
  8. I'm glad we're not the only ones who enjoy a good storm in the Bay of Biscay. Like you, we hope that RC don't pull out of the UK. If they do we will have to find a new line. We are a no-fly family, for medical reasons.
  9. Interesting idea but with a limit on the number of guest allowed to sail how would the line decide which passengers are allowed to sail?
  10. Hi, welcome to CC (Cruise Critics). Your TA (Travel Agent) may be prioritising the cancellation of holidays over complaints. That is what the TA I use is doing.
  11. One theory, that I have heard, is that cruise lines don't allow UK customers access to price drops because the lines have to pay an annual fee to be a member of ABTA. The fee is based on the lines revenue and allowing customers access to price drops makes it harder for ABTA to work out the annual fee for that line. I'm not sure how reliable this theory is so take it with a pinch of salt🤷‍♂️
  12. If you could do with the money why did you ask to extend the FCC by 1 year, in your OP?
  13. What is happening with Anello's trail? I know he has decided to change his plea to guilty and his trail was due to start in April but what is the latest please. Is Puerto Rico holding trails and plea hearing at the moment?
