  1. As we have two cruises booked for 2021 with CUNARD this is a very worrying time for us because Carnival UK have not as yet been in touch with us. They have an e-mail address for me so I am waiting and also checking my credit card current account statements daily.
  2. We sailed in on the Queen Elizabeth and what a wonderous site it is to sail into the lagoon. When we berthed the ships either side of us were monsters so, yes stop all these large ships going in and damaging Venice.
  3. Well river cruises have been given the go ahead so how long do we have to wait for ocean cruises? Things coming out of the FCO and transport ministry do not sound to good but, how many of these people go on cruises from those two ministrys?
  4. Read about this over a month ago. The people that back them have money troubles so, if they go under so will CMV. At this time we do not want to lose them.
  5. Do we believe Dr Zhong Nansham or anything coming out of China? So many lies have been told already. The FCO do not want anybody to cruise ever and Public Health England just want us 70 and over to stop indoors and fade away. We have two cruises booked for next year but I have not taken out any insurance yet because no one knows what is going on.
  6. I have just been looking in the money section on the web when I came across an item about the owning company of CMV which said the they were having cash flow problems and were looking to ditch their cruise arm.
  7. From what I have found out is that the ships will all possibly from the American market and maybe older ones from P&O or Holland America lines.
  8. Having just read this blog I am shocked at what SINBAD has written. We were booked to sail on 24 July with CUNARD. I have had lots of e-mails from them explaining all the options that we have. As we are both 70 and I have heart trouble CUNARD advised me not to sail. I rang BOLSOVER but the lines were very busy but, the next morning I got a call from them to see what they could do for me as my number came up as a missed call. This is why we book with BOLSOVER because they CARE. I explained what CUNARD had e-mailed to me and asked if our deposit could be used to book another cruise. This she did
  9. Just looked at OWT's photos. This looks an amazing ship with its radical new shape. As we are now both 70 this is not for us but, for the kids in the future this will very tempting I am sure. We are waiting to see what the new Cunard ship will look like as that maybe more our style.
  10. Just back from a Med cruise on the Queen Victoria and was saddened to read about your illness. Hope that it does not stop you from cruising. Several people on the cruise were new to Cunard and had swopped from P&O and Princess as they thought that these two lines were not up to there past standard. Having only cruised with Cunard over the last 10 years I think that they are now cutting corners. As for on board tipping that they add to your bill, well I think this is getting too much so went to the purses desk and got it removed. As most cruise lines have now put a stop to it so should Cuna
  11. Is this for real? Will she be walking with that little camera and bumping in other passengers like she does, then there is the film crew. If you are in shot will they want you to move. NO....this is not what I want from a cruise (nurishment not punishment) thank you very much.
  12. Been with Cunard 7 times now. We always book Cunard fares ( cost a little more but get what you pay for) With booking this way you can book your dining time and also a table for two. Bolsover always sort this for us.
  13. Not been on the forum for a while. Got quite a shock when I signed in with the new set up. Has any one else found this or is it just me?
  14. You can give it a try but, I would like to bet that hidden in their T&Cs there will be a get out. So be lucky and keep us all posted.
  15. We go on cruises to get away from these things. It is on for the 200 mile trip to Southampton and home again. I text my son when we are on the ship as he likes to know we have arrived safely. It then goes in the safe until the return trip home. Why bother with a cruise just to keep finding out what is going off at home?
