  1. We also booked our cruise with the above group, which was due to have sailed yesterday...and yes we received the same answer from them as you...we opted for the refund rather than FCC, very quick to take our money and painfully slow in giving it back it would seem.
  2. A Beautiful day In Sydney today, and what a sail away on QE we could have had, all but for the pandemic. But not to worry, I shall open a good bottle of bubbly later this afternoon, sit on our balcony and thank our lucky stars that we are still healthy, and that I hadn't booked more than the cruise to Vancouver... Here's to better times in the not too distant future.
  3. He might be related to that certain North American.
  4. Us as well. If we receive anything back from our cruise TA, it will most likely come in the form of vouchers...Just thanking my lucky stars we didn't book flights hotels etc etc.
  5. According to the Tasmania Dept of health, a passenger from the Sun Princess which docked in Sydney last week has tested positive for the virus. All passengers from Tasmania who were on the ship have been instructed to self isolate until April 2nd. As reported in the Guardian today.
  6. I don't need the cruise excuse for putting on weight anymore. I am rediscovering old cooking skills, a cake a day, and its only the 2 of us.. rock cakes, banana cake, semolina halva etc etc...and a great pizza base recipe using yoghurt and flour.
  7. As of now Australians are banned from overseas travel no end date given. I wonder how Cunard will respond to this, if in fact they do, with regards to the Aussies that have cruises booked in the near future.
  8. Pleased to see some of us still have a sense of humour.
  9. This was announced by NSW Public Health earlier today. I watched it from SBS news.
  10. Dept of NSW Health, 2 passengers and 1 crew member have tested positive to COVID-19 upon swab testing upon arrival into Sydney yesterday.
  11. Arrival yesterday into Sydney, 2 passengers and 1 crew member tested positive from this ship yesterday upon swabs taken yesterday upon docking. NSW Health Dept.
  12. Ruby Princess arrival yesterday into Sydney, just now on SBS news, 2 passengers and 1 crew member confirmed positive for COVID19.
  13. Certainly hope the Captain and the crew of QE have more communication from their head office than we, the paying passengers.
  14. For us it is Cunard. We have a cruise booked and paid for May 9th Syd-Vancouver. Their communication is almost non-existent . Their Aus web page is not kept up to date, their call centre is closed, and they don't answer emails. The company says it is suspending cruises until 11th April, but as Vancouver, our destination port is closed until 1st July, we are not sure of where the final destination is, nor how many ports we will be able to get into. They are only offering a refund if they cancel and even then our travel agent is saying it could be 3-4 months before that is transferred back to our account. I know it is a fluid situation and our cruise is still a few weeks away, but we have to make other plans apart from the cruise. I have had many other travel updates from other companies that we are not currently booked with (incl. Azamara) and for the many passengers that have their 1st cruise experience on Cunard in the offering, this lack of any sort of communication has indeed left a bad taste..
