  1. Thanks everyone! And I apologize for my ignorance re Denmark being part of the EU. I am going to relax a bit and might even go ahead and book that shuttle from port to Bruges- was holding off just in case we wouldn't be allowed to dock in Belgium. I appreciate the explanation about the Schengen zone. Was totally unaware of it. Hopefully all our UK passengers have got valid passports, just in case.
  2. I booked Blackberry this past Sunday for our trip in April and it is 44 pounds total for the trip in a Saloon car (which looks like a mid size sedan) for my husband, me, 2 pieces of checked luggage and 2 pieces of carry on luggage from Heathrow to our hotel in Bloomsbury. The chat feature on the website made it easy, and after an overnight flight we are happy to pay a bit extra to avoid toting all that luggage on trains to taxis to hotel.
  3. I have been cruising on and off for nearly 40 years, so I know that the worst that will happen re the cruise is that we will miss a port. I have been on cruises where ports were cancelled, and there was no compensation. If I were going to cancel the cruise, I would have done so and not asked the question. I am a rational person and wasn't looking for platitudes and reassurances- I was looking for insight into the Brexit situation potentially affecting the port calls, nothing more. I think that I could also figure out what to do in the face of a demonstration. And thanks, but I don't need worry material.
  4. We are sailing on the Sapphire Princess April 27 from Southampton to Bruges, Oslo, Copenhagen and Skagen. I am worried that we will not be able to dock in Belgium if Brexit takes effect, as it is an EU country and I doubt that they will have everything in place re customs and immigration by then if Great Britain leaves the EU on April 12. The other ports are not in the EU so I don't think it will be an issue. Does anyone have any insight? I know I am probably overthinking things, but we are really looking forward to this port. Also a bit worried about our 3 days precruise in London if there are protests, etc, but that's a separate issue.
