    Lock Down

    We have only yesterday transferred our May 2021 cruise on Britannia to a May 2022 cruise. It might well sail but do not like the thought of the restrictions being rumoured at the moment and think it is a bit early to hope cruising will be back to something normal.

    Lock Down

    P&O prices for Summer 2022 due to go on sail next week have not had a great increase in price. Prices for 2021 have gone up to silly prices because of demand with so many cancelling cruises this year and our cruise on Arcadia in 2021 had gone up considerably since we booked it in September 2019 before Covid and cruise lines ceasing sailing so that has nothing to do with fewer passengers so a hike in prices.

    Oh dear we have been hacked yet again

    It is plainly obvious that Bolsover have no interest in this forum and maintaining it and making sure it is safe for users. Will have to find another cruise forum to frequent.

    Cruising after the 'virus'

    At the end of the day will we ever know the real cause. I very much doubt it.

    P&O -does 'goodwill' exist?

    I recently contacted Bolsover to enquire about changing a booking made in Oct 2019 for a cruise on Britannia in May 2021 for Select price inside cabin to Select price balcony cabin and was quoted price of balcony cabin the day we booked and not the current price.

    How about other UK ports ?

    Also done because QM2 attracts a lot of German cruisers doing TAs to New York.

    Cruising after the 'virus'

    It states on Cunard's website that only QV cruises are cancelled until May, QE until March and QM2 April.

    Ransomeware attack on Carnival

    I dont think that P&O and Cunard being "down" suggests it is them I just think Carnival have done the same thing across all its cruise lines just as a precautionary measure.
  11. I dont think small boats and water taxis will do anywhere near as much damage as 1000ft long cruise ships and their draft.
  12. Unless you were on a very small ship I dont think you entered the lagoon going down the Grand Canal you wouldnt be able to get under the bridges the Rialto being the most famous.

    Apathy rules - or so it seems-

    Personally after listening to Prime Minister on TV I think far too many are thinking the pandemic is over and spreading the virus which will lead to a second wave. We had planned a holiday in Devon in October but have changed our mind we are staying local and being sensible and adhere to social distancing.

    Risen from the ashes-

    Dont think Swan Hellenic will take many cruisers that CMV lost due to thier demise.

    how about a cruise to nowhere.

    Think we are all well aware of that but if as suggested P&O did cruises to nowhere then as I said they would have to up their game with regards to some sort improvement in entertainment compared to the past even in the new norm post Covid.
