  1. Here we go again, just when some thought it was safe to put their toe in the water, virus strikes again. Quantum of the Seas was on a three day cruise to nowhere. One case of covid confirmed for an elderly person, all other passengers in lockdown. Much to early for this avid cruiser to be even considering booking a cruise from anywhere to anywhere.
  2. Why anyone anywhere is contemplating a cruise is beyond me, reports around that the first cruise out of Greece since the covid shutdown has the virus onboard, despite testing etc before it was allowed to sail. Cruise ships must be the best incubators of the disease and until there is a vaccine for the Covid 19, I am not going to go anywhere near a cruise ship despite what the authorities say or promise they are safe to do so.
  3. We seriously considered jumping on some of those super cheap specials that were available earlier this year, thank god we did not proceed. Crews from around the world? What has changed, nothing but I would not be taking assurances from cruise lines that their ship is 'safe' to sail on until I have a jab - that will be my 'safe to go' tick.and only that will do for me.
  4. I have not read the comments on this thread but as the majority of cruisers are in their later years, I cannot believe anyone would even consider booking or going on a cruise from anywhere until there is a vaccine or a immediate effective cure available
  5. Totally agree, we will endure debt for years but at least we have made every effort to look after our fellow Australians in this very trying times
  6. No posts on the Asia forum for over a week, most unusual. Has every one cancelled their cruises to that part of the world?
  7. Was a full page ad in the West Australian newspaper Travel Guide on Saturday 15 Feb, Verandas are $3,499 No it was not my "Imaginecruising" dream either!
  8. All inclusive Indian Ocean Odyssey with Silversea, 16 nights from Singapore to Mumbai Everything included on the ship. ie drinks gratuities, WIFI etc Includes flights, transfers and one night Hotel in Singapore Four nights in Yangoon and Colombo included within the cruise. Prices from $2,999 per person but departure is 28 February so you will need to get a move on

    Vietnam Visa

    You had better believe it CissyFuss, Not only does many cruise lines not know the charges their ships will charge for Visas, give incorrect information, Vietnam Consulates etc have been known to give false or misleading information as well regarding Visas. Princess is probably the worst of the bunch because they impose charges well above the norm to make extra from their passengers and have been doing so for years. According to our resident expert Expat Cruiser, Princess will charge you $USD33 (even though their cruise personaliser says $US56) and the cost of an EVisa is $USD25, for $8 per person extra I would let Princess organise the visa and cop the extra as a cost of cruising. Less hassles and you have to do nothing!
  11. Gardens by the bay are a must see and you probably need 2/3 hours to do it over. Yes you will see plants and flowers from all parts of the world as well as tropical plants Singapore and Asia are well know for
  12. All you need to do is scroll down the topics on this forum and you will find plenty of threads that will assist you to research your trip and provide the answers you seek
