  1. They are slowly repopulating the site with rescheduled cruises. Smeralda is no longer going to Dubai and is being replaced by Pacifica. We are interested in the Firenze to Singapore in October for 30 nights.
  2. Unfortunately the Costa website has been a work of fiction for some time now.
  3. This isn't the whole picture. The official press notice says that the Favolosa Caribbean cruises are not included in the winter cancellations. We have a transatlantic booked on the Favolosa in December, plus two Caribbean cruises on it thereafter. I had just about written them all off, but now have at least some hope... But the Fascinosa back from Santos in April 2021 is definitely cancelled.
  4. Sorry -- looks like the Diadema isn't going to the Gulf at all this year but is staying in the Mediterranean and Canary Islands.
  5. The Italian Prime Minister has just said that cruises will be allowed to resume because tourism is so important to the economy. The parliamentary scientific and technical committee signed off the safety protocols last night. The next and final step is for the regional states conference to approve - and they are meeting on Monday. Italy will be open for cruising (as will Greece and Malta, so far..
  6. I promise not to inflict any more Google Translate on the board! The latest news, which I've just read on the French Costa Fans Facebook page, is that the Italian parliamentary scientific and technical committee approved the safety protocol last night and the final decision will be taken by the Conference of Regional States (due to meet on Monday).
  7. This from today's "Corriere della Sera". Google Translated. Cruises and conferences The prime minister says it cautiously, he does not go out of balance. But then he talks about " cruise ships that have to start traveling again because tourism is a fundamental piece of our economy ", he focuses " on the fairs and conferences that we have to organize, because only in this way can all activities be resumed", he understands which direction this new phase is taking. The masks, the distances, "are fundamental , but they must not be perceived as a limitation. I can say it because I recalled from the first day the respect of the rules that provided for the obligation to use these devices and nowI am very pleased to see who derided us, forced to cover our nose and mouth and above all to advise everyone, young people first of all, that we must be careful ».
  8. She is to be sold to CSSC Carnival - presumably for cruising in the Chinese market. At least that was the plan ...
  9. If you didn't do one last year, unfortunately you won't be eligible for an upgrade.
  10. Hey samian, how are you? We have fond memories of the Deliziosa and I enjoyed reading your account of the voyage (even if it differed somewhat from the experience of us inside-cabin, non-drinking passengers!) We have friends on both the Luminosa and Pacifica, but haven't heard from them in a couple of days. They were in Marseille at the time. Lorraine
  11. If it's the Costa Fortuna from Singapore, it's definitely cancelled. They just called me and I have received the e-mail. Don't fly! The e-mail will come.
  12. That's not a change. It doesn't look as though there are major alterations - except Perla members will no longer get 20 euros OBC.
  13. Costa still have those shuttles (call them to add it to your booking). It costs 26 euros pp at the moment. We are using it on 9 April when Fortuna arrives in Savona. We expect the shuttle to arrive at Nice airport at about 1pm. Flixbus (www.flixbus.com) are cheaper but you have to take a taxi to Savona railway station to catch them.
  14. There is usually a bar near the buffet and there are bartenders at the end of each buffet line who serve wine, beer and soft drinks. At the moment their draft beer is Heineken.
