  1. Food poisoning lasts for at least a few days, not just overnight....
  2. I've found A/C in UK hotels nowhere near as good as US hotels. You may be severely disappointed.
  3. It's been a whole new way of working on another level never seen before. As you say, they've adapted pretty well and quickly.
  4. Thanks, majority of staff are working from home. So it's really quiet at the moment, down from 800 to about 80 staff in work. The NHS has coped excellently, even to the point they now have empty wards, so have never actually been overwhelmed like they were in Italy and Spain.
  5. I'm the Security Manager for the BBC in Cardiff, so still working but on reduced shift pattern. My wife is a nurse and still working full time as you can imagine...
  6. A 2 week quarantine period is being brought in from May for any arrivals into the UK.
  7. Only available on the crap beers...
  8. I live just a few miles down from Cardiff in Newport, and Morgans as just about got it sown up. For restaurants, there are a few good ones. The Ivy has just opened in the city centre, Giovanni's(Italian) either on the Hayes or opposite the New Theatre, The Clink Cymru is actually in Cardiff Prison and is run by Prisoners, has a couple of month waiting list(highly recommended). Across the Marina is the Custom House which houses 2 different restaurants. Further afield you have the Hardwick in Abergavenney(about 40min drive). Numerous other restaurants to choose from, your friends show know most of them. For pubs, well there's absolutely loads, in the city centre and the suburbs.
  9. You dock right in the city centre. Loads of stuff, Beatles, Maritime heritage, Albert Dock, 2 World class Cathedrals to tour round. loads of excellent pubs to stop off at....etc...
  10. What's spiked seltzer?? Cruise lines do take time to catch up though. Pink Gin as been massive in the UK for quite a few years now, but nowhere to be seen on Princess ships.
  11. We always do Anytime, but on our last 2 cruises we've been sat in Club Class when no 2 tops were available straight away.
  12. They have 2 menus, which if you only have one sea day, you'll miss one. They've had the Curry for years.
  13. There's also this new elongated roundabout on the M4 at J28 close to where I live. Which again, works actually quite well and has reduced congestion significantly.
  14. No, people change their hairstyles all the time. Especially women. So your daughter will be fine.
