  1. I think it depends on whether you prefer Spring - "When proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim, Hath put a spirit of youth in everything, or Autumn - "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun."
  2. The three last cruise ships still sailing with passengers will dock today. MSC Magnifica, in Marseilles, Pacific Princess in Los Angeles, and the Costa Deliziosa in Barcelona (and then Genoa). The BBC has the story of Magnifica's world cruise. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-52350262
  3. If you don't want to go to some event with a fixed date, Spring and Autumn are far the best times to visit the UK.
  4. Amazing what you can find on t'internet: OCEANA is en route to the port of Dover, sailing at a speed of 8.3 knots and expected to arrive there on Apr 14, 06:00. MARELLA CELEBRATION is DRIFTING South of the IOW, sailing at a speed of 1.1 knots MARELLA DISCOVERY 2 is at North East Atlantic Ocean en route to the port of Southampton, sailing at a speed of 14.1 knots and expected to arrive there on Apr 17, 06:00. VIKING SKY is at North East Atlantic Ocean is en route to the port of Portsmouth, sailing at a speed of 16.5 knots and expected to arrive there on Apr 16, 05:00. ALLURE OF THE SEAS is at North East Atlantic Ocean en route to the port of Southampton, sailing at a speed of 19.1 knots and expected to arrive there on Apr 22, 06:00. That's just a few at random until I got bored https://www.marinevesseltraffic.com/2013/06/vessel-cruise-finder.html?full_screen=yes
  5. When are you planning to go? There seem to be plenty of flights from UK to Porto in normal times. AFAIK, Porto is not an embarkation port. You will join at Lisbon.
  6. It should be quite a sight to see all those ships anchored in Weymouth Bay. It might give a bit of a boost to the locals as they will all need services.
  7. My DW suggested that they could be used as hospitals if it gets really bad.
  8. I wonder where they will park them? They surely won't want to pay the Southampton Dock fees.
  9. The cruise lines have done it for themselves
  10. I found this audio BBC broadcast which has some relevant information on it: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p084bhyf
  11. This is all unknown territory and everyone is making it up as they go along. Have you asked your insurance Co about making a claim for the out-of-pocket costs? It could be argued that since Singapore was listed as a high risk country, allowing your TA to route you through there was a risk. I suspect that you will get your money back - eventually, but you need to persist. If it was your TA who booked the flights, then they are responsible.
  12. We always aim for two hours ahead. This gives ample time for bag drop and, with a morning flight, an expensive but leisurely breakfast. Naturally we check in online the day before.
