  1. We wish him well in his future endeavours. A true gentleman.
  2. We have one cruise booked on Azamara, one cruise booked on another cruise line and one land holiday. The Azamara cruise is next April, the second cruise after they are due to restart on Journey. Like many others I am hoping for a vaccine by then. If a vaccine isn’t available by then we will have have to consider our alternatives. Like many others I have gotten used to wearing masks but enforced land excursions in a group would be a step too far.
  3. Well my cruise on Journey is now the second cruise out. It’s April 17th. Let’s hope we go!
  4. So have I! Keeping everything crossed too!
  5. The Spanish government have just banned ALL cruise ships from their ports for an indefinable time. Rightly or wrongly, the cruise industry seems to be taking the hit for Covid-19. CMV (small British based cruise line) have started urgently seeking a loan. Barclays have already denied them. Carnival is seeking to dispose of 6 ships. It seems that anyone who has a “weakest link“ will be vulnerable in these desperate times.
  6. The first ship’s casualties have arrived. It’s Carnival but it can only be the beginning. https://cruisemarsh.wordpress.com/2020/06/18/carnival-corporation-have-principle-agreements-for-disposal-of-6-ships/
  7. Viking has now suspended all sailings until August 31st.
  8. Saga has now postponed all cruises until September 1st. I don’t think other cruise lines will be far behind them.
  9. Just FYI I was surprised to receive an email from Azamara today advising me that my TA now had details of my FCC for my cancelled June 11th Cruise. I had only paid the deposit and I cancelled the cruise myself in March before I had paid the final payment. Of course Azamara then cancelled the cruise anyway a couple of weeks ago. I was surprised to receive any credit at all as deposits in the U.K. are usually non refundable. There was no option to ask for a refund of my money.
  10. Yes I thought this was a much more relevant survey and better designed to gain information about our future cruising plans. I also said I was unlikely to cruise again until a vaccine OR effective treatment for Covid-19 was available. It is much better to have a vaccine of course, but do remember that there are many viral infections that still cannot be vaccinated against. An effective treatment may be much easier to find in the shorter term.
  11. Thanks for all your efforts and hard work over the past few years.
  12. Well I am sorry to say it but realistically I don’t think there will be any cruising until next year at least. There will need to be a viable mass vaccine available or a huge drop in the Covid infection rate. Neither of which I see happening soon. However I am looking at booking a cruise with friends in June 2021 that I think has a possibility of sailing. I think I’m an optimistic realist!
  13. Awww. 😅 So happy for them to be on their way home. There was a little dust in my eye too!
  14. So relieved that Azamara have done the right thing by you Corinne. It will give you one less thing to worry about right now. Thinking about you and take care.
  15. At least that’s some progress Corinne. Hope it arrives very soon. I’m so sorry you have had to go through all this unnecessary stress at such a sad time. Take care.
