  1. I'm often checking into the cooler to follow the banter. Thought these would appeal all you cooks. The Canadian, American Welsh and English are true enough, cant speak for the others .
  2. Seriously ? talk about throwing your toys out of the cot. What do you want a gold star, pat on the back. Just go with the flow and enjoy the banter its not all about about you.
  3. You could also say that the FTSE 100 is hugely under valued.
  4. No surprise to read that Q2 figures are no better: From the Times today "Cruise and Hotel giants hit by brutal lockdown losses Two of the largest hospitality companies in the world have reported crushing losses. Royal Caribbean, the cruise operator, reported a net loss of $1.64 billion for the second quarter of this year, a swing of more than $2 billion from the profits it reported for the same period last year of $472 million." The article goes on to report that RCL is burning through $290 million a month and could give no guidance for the full year. It goes without s
  5. What would be the objection to a bit of OBC for holding shares?
  6. Will this now mean that RCL shareholder benefits will apply to Silversea?
  7. Same here, I remember discussing the YF vaccination age conundrum back in Feb! I have now booked this same cruise on Silversea for March 22, was much the same price as our cancelled one. Hopefully the world will have got back on track by then.
  8. I have just booked a cruise for 2022, and asking the agent (UK based) how business was he was very upbeat. Said that they are really quite busy and that business is actually surprisingly very good. He was pretty confident about the industry going forward.
  9. I would imagine they would have some sort of algorithm in place to determine these assignments and that sounds like a plausible explanation. Thanks.
  10. Jumping on this thread with a further question. If the scenario was as stumblefoot described, would Silversea then upgrade an already assigned suite (classic veranda) to the higher category (deluxe veranda) and put the GTY into the classic suite ? Or is it a case of once you have an assigned suite they wont move you?
  11. Yup, we were on the Manaus - Miami one. as I said think we got notification around the 16th March, and TA canceled on the 17/18th.
  12. Have been following this thread with interest. My update: Cruise 5th April, cancelled around the 16th March. Refund requested 17th March and I'm happy to say that today all monies were returned. I had 2 payments of £1000 on 2 separate credit cards (sign up bonuses) and the £6400 paid with another CC which the TA has refunded onto my bank account. Not sure how many days that is but I think I've flirted with a 100 days But all good finally. Good luck for everyone else still waiting .
  13. Well there maybe a price drop on some sailings, but I was looking to rebook our cancelled Amazon trip for next year and the same cruise is now priced at 60% more. So I'm not jumping on that. Original voyage: April 2020. Price for an OB veranda in May 2019 - $4299 (increased in July to $4999) Current Price for same voyage April 2021 $6999 Even those sitting with FCC's of 25% will be in for a surprise on that one
  14. 60 days since I requested a refund and received this: At least I'm not ignored !
