  2. also asking for a bail out according to yahoo fianace Coronavirus: TUI suspends all package holidays and cruises and asks for state aid https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/coronavirus-tui-suspends-all-package-holidays-and-cruises-and-asks-for-state-aid-082549258.html
  3. You haven't been to Scotland in our Summer then
  4. UK government estimates that we have between 5000 to 10000 cases in the country . https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/health-51862922/up-to-10000-in-uk-likely-to-have-coronavirus-chief-scientific-adviser
  5. hopefully that will be what has happened, badly reported by bbc if that is the case
  6. Reports on the BBC that a passenger on the grand Princess has died- I have not heard that verified from any other source. It does not say if from Virus or not https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lancashire-51798946
  7. he is not on the ship he is getting photos from someone on the ship.
  8. He has not been happy with people using his photos without permission that is why I just posted the link a few posts ago
  9. just saw a photo of breakfast on https://twitter.com/keaneli It included fresh fruit yoghurt free juice coffee milk bread rolls & croiasonts omelet ham potatoes Don't know about anyone else but that would feed me for a day if the need arose I think what they mean is they don't have the unlimited selections they expect on a cruise. At this point in time that would be the least of my worries if I was on the ship
  10. However, late Saturday afternoon, the CDC informed the cruise line of their decision to issue a “no-sail order” until the crew member was tested for Novel Coronavirus, Princess Cruises said. According to the cruise line, they were unable to obtain a test for the crew member, and “due to the unknown timing of obtaining the test and results or anticipated response,” the cruise was cancelled. Princess Cruises says the crew member, who had no known contact or exposure to other guests or crew who were sick on the Grand Princess, is past the maximum incubation of Novel Coronavirus, has been evaluated, and has never developed any respiratory symptoms or fever. https://edition.cnn.com/asia/live-news/coronavirus-outbreak-03-08-20-intl-hnk/index.html the last sentence is odd surely it should be no other contact with anyone who has show symptoms to date
  11. VP Mike Pence announces changes to cruise line industry to fight coronavirus https://edition.cnn.com/asia/live-news/coronavirus-outbreak-03-07-20-intl-hnk/index.html There will be enhanced entry and exit screening for cruise passengers, as well as on-board testing for coronavirus, Pence said. There will also be new quarantine standards for those who took a cruise and need to be quarantined, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will coordinate. The cruise line industry is working with the CDC, Department of Homeland Security and the Coast Guard over the next 72 hours to implement the plans.
  12. Exactly I went 5 months after a 7 months stay in hospital for leukemia- I may not have had 18 months at all never mind to wait in. As long as your consultant team are happy (they were ecstatic that I made it and have photos up in the hospital ward of all the places I have visited over the last 18 months) and I am happy then I will go for it. Things may change for a lot of people with this virus ramping up my team would not be happy if I was to travel at the minute - luckily I got back from my last cruise the end of Jan
  13. One of the reports said that she had surgery and radiotherapy in January and her doctors OK'd the trip as she hadn't started chemo yet. There was a bit of sorting out to see if insurance was going to cover it so they recommended the trip to enjoy time while that was getting organised. Best wishes to the lady concerned
  14. the 15-30 mins is for surgical type masks - there are others designed to last for much longer
  15. Sounds a bit like neither MSC or Greece wanted to be involved anymore that they have too. So took alternative approach - If we look away and you all run it will be fine - Honest!
  16. reports from some on the ship on twitter suggest she has. but no idea what impact this will have on her getting the next chemo soon, as I imagine they will have to make sure she is not habouring the virus before starting
  17. Another Diamond passenger has died today RIP www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-us-canada-51781573
  18. https://twitter.com/SamGodfrey/with_replies The link above is to the twitter account of the SIL of the captain of the ship. Her sister is also on this cruise. So may be a good one to follow
  19. this is false the news item was corrected after I posted it it now says for returnees so will not apply to cruisers
  20. Yip you are correct the report I read has now added a correction That's a great summary link you have posted very useful hope they keep it updated as this progresses
  21. as I already said Everything we do before a pandemic will seem alarmist. Everything we do after will seem inadequate.’
  22. Another possible impact to cruising as the cruises to northern EU/ Russia are due to start up in the next few weeks Moscow Govt just released an updated list of 11 countries w/“unfavourable” situation re coronavirus. The list of countries where travelers MUST self-isolate” themselves for 14 days after arrival: China, SKorea, Iran, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Swiss, UK, Norway+ USA.
  23. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-asia-51764135 Malta doctors threaten industrial action over ship Doctors in Malta have threatened industrial action if a cruise liner bound for the island is allowed to dock over coronavirus fears, the Times of Malta has reported.
