  1. You can have mine!!! I don't know how you managed to train your brain not to be light sensitive - I've been travelling for probably a lot longer than you and mine still says blackout or no sleep!!!! 😴 Anne..
  2. I think the reason for the fare differences of the various voyages mentioned is due mainly to their timing. The 2022 voyage is quite late for the Europe to Middle East route - they are usually scheduled in late October, and that route is well served at that time of year as cruise lines reposition ships from Europe to Asia, or for the Middle East winter season… I think this cruise and the following roundtrip Abu Dhabi cruise are well priced to draw interest to the Holiday Cruise, which sails from Abu Dhabi to Mumbai with an included excursion to the Taj Mahal… I’ve lived in the Mid
  3. Not a big surprise, but a big disappointment - I was hoping the final segment of the QM2’s voyage would be my means of returning to the UK next year without having to get on a plane!!!! 🥲🥲 Anne…
  4. I know we are in different time zones but the Serenity isn't just arriving, she has been docked in Cadiz since yesterday!!! 🤔 Anne...
  5. Hi Jay Will you be bravely returning to cruising when the Symphony restarts operations?? According to the Visit Antigua website all arriving passengers must have a negative PCR test result taken within the 7 days prior to arrival… Here’s the link to their website.. https://visitantiguabarbuda.com/travel-advisory/ Enjoy your trip… Anne…
  6. I have no idea where NPR reports from but I saw this pop up on my internet feed just yesterday…It certainly looks as though the Delta strain is being reported to be on the rise in the USA… https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2021/06/08/1004597294/the-highly-contagious-delta-variant-of-covid-is-on-the-rise-in-the-u-s Anne
  7. The transit is over now and the ship is now in the Mediterranean, I believe heading for Cyprus… It was a daytime transit for me as I live out here!!!! Anne..
  8. and especially for Roy (rafinmd) I also managed to catch the exact moment Crystal Serenity sailed past the Ever Given container ship st her anchorage in the Great Bitter Lake…. Anne
  9. For those of you not on the same time zone as me here are a few screenshots from my iPad of the Serenity as she transits the Suez Canal his morning… Sunrise over the Sinai Desert Canal Transit I’ll try to get some more later in the day.. Anne…
  10. Funny you should mention that - it was the first thing that sprung to my mind. I can't think why....😁 Anne...🤠
  11. I’m with you on this one - I couldn’t believe what I was reading. However, considering the number of for v against comments I can only assume it must be an ‘outsider’ view!!!! I’m already on the countdown to receive my booster shot!!! Anne
  12. Hi Maria, Sorry to hear your plans are still uncertain, I'll keep an eye on this thread now so if you do need anything else, you won't have to wait two months for me to reply!!!! Anne...
  13. Hi, Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you but with cruising paused for over a year I haven't even looked at CC during that time!!! As you already know the Expo site is well out of the city however, if you are comfortable using public transport and self-catering then you could look at either aparthotels or Airbnb's in either JLT (Jumeirah Lake Towers) or Dubai Marina as they both give easy access to the Metro (and the tram within Dubai Marina) which by October will run right to the Expo site. You can also go in the opposite direction and take the Metro into the city when y
  14. You haven't missed much Vince!!! I had a vague recollection of having visited during the Holiday cruise of 2015/16 but had to dig into my photo archives to confirm that!! There wasn't a lot to see or do - a scenic tour took us to a couple of forts and a coastal photo opp but my lasting memory is that it also included the airport!!!! Tour buses and tour guides were both pretty basic, but your never know, things may have improved in the last 5+ years....😀 Anne..
  15. and the Sunday Mail’s report/review of last night’s show..... https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-8776447/Britains-Got-Talent-Comedy-singer-Jon-Courtenay-act-make-final.html Anne...
