  1. They've changed the 90 days to 60 days. This has been applied to the 2 cruises we have booked for next spring and the cruise we lifted and shifted to next September
  2. So many lovely places on this thread so many places we want to visit sigh! We are relatively new to cruising but have travelled Europe extensively by land but discovered Lisbon on a Silhouette Western Med Cruise and have been back. We liked Singapore at the end of our HK to Singapore cruise so planned a pre cruise stay when doing the Singapore to Dubai cruise but that got changed at the start of all this to a Dubai to Dubai cruise so Singapore is on the wish list. I'd happily spend more time in St Petersburg and explore more of Russia. Fingers crossed we have a France and Spain cruise next year places we've been but happy to go back but then an Ireland/Iceland one later in year very excited about.
  3. Thanks for your reply the itinerary is Bilbao overnight, Vigo, La Coruna and Le Harve We spent 5 days in Bilbao for rugby a couple of years ago and know Paris well so choice would probably be Normandy or Versailles
  4. Hi All hope everybody is keeping well. In these strange times we were trying to look forward to happier times and our cruise on Silhouette at end April next year. We thought we’d look at excursions Celeb to start does anybody recommend any of the trips esp the Beaches or Versailles. Our mobility isn’t great so looking for low impact. Thanks in advance
  5. HOW DO COURT RECORDERS KEEP STRAIGHT FACES????>> These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while the exchanges were taking place.>> ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?>> WITNESS: He said, 'Where am I, Cathy?'>> ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?>> WITNESS: My name is Susan!>> _______________________________>> ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?>> WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.>> ____________________________________________>> ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?>> WITNESS: No, I just lie there.>> ____________________________________________>> ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?>> WITNESS: July 18th.>> ATTORNEY: What year?>> WITNESS: Every year.>> _____________________________________>> ATTORNEY: How old is your son, the one living with you?>> WITNESS: Thirty-eight or thirty-five, I can't remember which.>> ATTORNEY: How long has he lived with you?>> WITNESS: Forty-five years.>> _________________________________>> ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?>> WITNESS: Yes.>> ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?>> WITNESS: I forget..>> ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?>> ___________________________________________>> ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?>> WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?>> ____________________________________>> ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?>> WITNESS: He's 20, much like your IQ.>> ___________________________________________>> ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?>> WITNESS: Are you shitting me?>> _________________________________________>> ATTORNEY: So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?>> WITNESS: Yes.>> ATTORNEY: And what were you doing at that time?>> WITNESS: Getting laid>> ____________________________________________>> ATTORNEY: She had three children , right?>> WITNESS: Yes.>> ATTORNEY: How many were boys?>> WITNESS: None.>> ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?>> WITNESS: Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney.

  6. Feel so lucky we completed our Dubai(Singapore) to Dubai cruise with only a couple of changes, on the Constellation last one completed by Celebrity over there and a fabulous cruise, We have next 3 booked on the Silhouette on Sept 5th Ireland and Iceland and then end of April 2021 a B2B France & Spain followed by Norwegian Fjords all out of Southampton.First one probably in doubt if the Silhouette doesn't come over for a short season After those I want to do South America, New England and Canada, Alaska anywhere!
  7. Our change from Singapore to Dubai cost us £250 more than the Celeb contribution
  8. We managed to get a flight out of UK tomorrow to Dubai was surprised we couldn't get nearer the weekend but saw @sgmn post so good reasoning plus I suspect Celebrity Air acted before they sent the email at 3am this morning and will have rerouted some from States to Dubai via London. First world problems very annoying to miss Singapore but rather be safe and after a couple of hours hassling everything is cancelled and hotel, transfers etc booked for Dubai. All at a cost though the air rebook alone was £250 more than Celebrity's contribution
  9. 75 Best of India and South East Asia (71 night until we fly) 277 nights Ireland and Iceland
  10. I did this last year on the Millenium and as bluehengal said there were 6 stations set up I think France, Italy, Argentina, Australia, USA and Spain. Red and white not bad quality on each. Circle round with cards to mark and go back to the ones you like. Nibbles provided cheese, bread, fruit etc. Mine was about 3 in the afternoon and needed a lay down after lol
  11. I have been known to embrace my former rugby persona and find that they can move when accidentally bumped with profuse apologies and commenting good job there was plenty of room behind you lol
  12. You're lucky @calicakes our first X cruise was in an inside and we've done verandas since so it's taking ages to get to Elite. I'll be 17 points short after our Feb cruise so will hit it in September with the Iceland cruise. Will have to book at least one other just to be elite lol
  13. Jim if you like a good series and haven't read them try Michael Connely's Harry Bosch series
  14. We usually MDR for breakfast and I alternate between Eggs Royale and the French Omelet always with a side of mushrooms and a grapefruit juice
