  1. I think the Canadian/US summer season is almost certainly not going to take place. The US is now highly hostile to cruise ships, you just need to look at how they are treating the Princess ships that are unable to dock (despite setting sail from the USA). Some of these ships have no one onboard infected with Covid Virus. The officers onboard can’t stay on the ship indefinitely, so it would make sense to return to Southampton, which of course will accept the ship. Holding the ship for many months in the Southern Hemisphere for the next Australian cruise season isn’t ideal either, es
  2. Excellent news from P&O’s official Twitter feed “In light of the Coronavirus situation, we are reviewing our current transfer & cancellation policies to offer greater flexibility for our guests. Details will be available within 48 hours. For sailings within 48 hours please call us on 03453 555 111 to discuss your options.”

  4. You are right you would only contact your travel insurance company after receiving a letter from your Doctor advising that it is in the interest of your Health and wellbeing not to travel. With world leading Public Health authorities such as the US CDC issuing such clear advice against travelling on a cruise ship I think most GPs would see this as extremely sensible. “It has become clear that people with underlying conditions such as heart disease, chronic lung disease, diabetes, and other conditions that cause suppression of immune system particularly among the older adults, are a
  5. I would suggest you are in a similar position to many of us. I am sure your GP would write such a letter and would certainly do so if Public Health England issue specific advice to “At Risk” groups to minimise situations in which they find themselves in large gatherings. I would hold firm on claiming on your insurance as I would hope as the situation progresses P&O will be forced to change their cancellation policy, especially if the travelling party contains people over a certain age. This would likely allow you to transfer your booking to a later date, in either 2
  6. I am a Biologist with a Virology background and some of the media hype about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has frustrated me massively. However I feel it is vital that we recognise the importance of educated discussion on the matter. I have found it very alarming that P&O groups on Facebook have decided to close down discussion on the matter. Posts about the Virus are not anti-P&O or any other Cruise company they exist because rightfully people have genuine worries about stepping on a Cruise ship under the current climate. Let me start by saying that I believe we are in very good
  7. The Captain explained that on the night of the first sea day when they would normally host the welcome party we picked up the Hamburg pilot at 11pm that evening. The Captain/Deputy Captain/Safety officer then had to remain on the bridge until we docked at about 7am the following morning. Hosting the Welcome drinks would have meant the Captain and his Deputy would have been on duty from 5:45pm until around 8:45pm, leaving them little over 2 hours rest before the 8 hour trip down the River Elbe into Hamburg (accompanied by the Pilot). On the Second Sea Day evening all of t
