  1. Further update from BBC in last few mins: International cruises will be able to start again from England from Monday 2 August after a 16-month break.
  2. Agreed but a step forward nonetheless and worthy of mention.
  3. Today’s news - from Govt press release Following the close monitoring of epidemiological evidence, gained through the restart of the domestic cruise industry earlier this year, the UK government has also confirmed the go ahead for international cruise sailings to restart from England in line with Public Health England guidance. International cruise travel advice will be amended to encourage travellers to understand the risks associated with cruise travel and take personal responsibility for their own safety abroad. To further support the safe restart of international c
  4. This is a not very illustrative picture of when we were caught off the coast of Italy in the Medicaine of October 2018 in over 100mph winds
  5. Hmm true but not always the best though
  6. As a photographer myself, I can assure you that photos can be picked up cheaply, whether inspiring or not, so if a calendar is produced then surely it is more likely to be displayed and commercially doing its job if the photos it contains are well chosen. But you are missing the point. I said I loved the calendar. I use it. I am just sad there are few ships in it, particularly smaller ships.
  7. I want to add that I am a huge fan of smaller ships, hence my concern 🤔
  8. It’s for the Caribbean tier and above
  9. It was lovely to receive the calendar. Did anyone else notice the only ships included were large ones (and not many ship pics at all). Am I being overly suspicious? Is it “just in case”?
  10. The last full Aurora cruise to Arctic Norway, ending around 10 March.
  11. Been the last two years to Alta, Tromso etc on a Northern Loghts cruise. Fantastic!
  12. Agreed. Sorry, I didn’t see this. Just reposted this article on the EU thread Thirty-three crew members of a Hurtigruten cruise in Norway have been diagnosed with Covid-19, with four hospitalised and the rest in isolation. The staff, of which there were 160 in total, were tested at the end of a seven-day sailing around the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard yesterday, with 177 passengers on board; none of whom reported any symptoms of the virus while onboard and all of whom had disembarked by the time the news broke. In what is unfolding as a major test for an industry that
  13. I think this tells us why - today’s news. Thirty-three crew members of a Hurtigruten cruise in Norway have been diagnosed with Covid-19, with four hospitalised and the rest in isolation. The staff, of which there were 160 in total, were tested at the end of a seven-day sailing around the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard yesterday, with 177 passengers on board; none of whom reported any symptoms of the virus while onboard and all of whom had disembarked by the time the news broke. In what is unfolding as a major test for an industry that is only just getting back on
  14. It’s likely. We did the same last December. We had caviar in the surf and beach toys at 2 locations. Mayreau and Carambola Beach.
  15. Iles des Saintes? Beautiful spot. Mine is definitely inferior to Fletcher’s. Here is a video I took at the same place. IMG_2481.MOV
