  1. The problem is, to allow social distancing on ships would mean fewer passengers so a good hike in prices. To have to wear face masks on a cruise would be similar to a chap shaving his beard off after being on holiday... lots of white bits. Prices have already gone up 🙁
  2. I rang up yesterday but I don’t think the person I spoke to knew what I was talking about..
  3. Whilst I have only booked cruises through Bolsover at their main premises, I am sorry to hear that there premises at Meadowhall will not be reopening. I am sure that others will join me in wishing Bolsover cruise club well for the future during these difficult times and that we may all soon be cruising again... PP 🙂
  4. I see P and O have now cancelled all cruises until 2021
  5. If it protects Venice I’m all for it. The ships are getting too big and shouldn’t expect to be able to berth.
  6. Oceana is now berthed in Greece... web cam is on if anyone is interested
  7. We are all lucky at present and fingers crossed we will remain so but some of us know folk who have died from this dreadful disease. I am one of them. Yes we endeavour to remain positive but it’s not always possible. It’s not all about reading books and gardening.. just my opinion but I await more backlash!
  8. I wasn’t being negative, just that if the shops are open you pay duty on everything... I give up!
  9. Guernsey was an example to make it duty free that was all
  10. That would be good as long it stopped at Guernsey to make it a duty free cruise. Not that you save much but at least you could buy some alcohol at reduced rate.. I wonder if you could get cruise insurance for it
  11. At least Bolsover are finding ways to diversify with normal cruising being on hold. I wouldn’t be booking a new cruise until such time that I can get insurance as mine couldn’t be renewed. Fingers crossed they can sustain the change.
  12. It’s just off the Isle of Wight... camera is working... I just put this on another thread...
  13. It’s just on the south coast of the Isle of Wight... the camera is operating too
  14. One thing for sure, I bet the prices escalate.... some cruise lines are already quoting double for single travellers. There’s also the problem of arranging travel insurance..
  15. Judging by doing a bit of googling there are some carnival ships named but it makes you wonder whether they should have commissioned something the size of Iona. I can’t see them filling it on a regular basis..
