  1. Yes, X are redeploying Millennium to the West Coast (US) and Royal’s Spectrum of the Seas to Australia, out of Asia and the issues of finding somewhere to dock. They are offering free cruises to fire operatives and emergency service operatives (fantastic, positive PR for them in this awful situation in Asia). See above post for details.
  2. Correct: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-51514837
  3. True, but mine was a hypothetical question about would you feel the same if the outbreak was in the Caribbean instead of Asia. The outbreak is there - no what ifs. Would the cancellations rise if it was closer to home (well, yours not mine 🙂)? Just asking a question, like the OP did on their first post.
  4. Most of you are referring to Caribbean cruises when you say you are still taking them, but if an outbreak occurred in that area, such as the one on Diamond Princess, in the next few weeks, would you still be taking those Caribbean cruises without worrying? Hopefully, you won’t have to make this difficult decision and the virus is contained.
  5. Looks like they changed the port of embarkation for Connie from Singapore to Dubai too.
  6. There will undoubtedly be more as what about all the people he came into contact with on the flights back to the U.K. via France etc? Or the people at the pub he went into when he got back? It’s surprising how many other people one person can infect in such a short period of time.

  8. After a confirmed case from passenger who has recently disembarked Diamond Princess: https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/japan-to-quarantine-cruise-ship-on-which-virus-patient-sailed-2020-02-03 https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2730905-diamond-princess-passenger-tested-positive-for-wuhan-coronavirus/
  9. They did change it on X after many years of being able to do it and many posts stating how.
  10. Yes, give me the Cotswolds, Cornwall, Somerset, Devon etc. any day than some of the large cities.
  11. Reflection is our least favourite X ship (far too crowded for our liking in Europe in peak season), but for that much price difference, I’d go with X. July too warm - I think not - best bring your waterproofs 🤣.
  12. Yes, even more so when you’re around that age and the kids at school still ask if you were evacuated during World War II 🙈.
