  1. Other cruiselines such as Cunard and P&O put the facility in their cabins. We have the drinks package but it would be nice to just boil up a kettle for early morning tea.
  2. Will there be teamaking facilities on Regal Princess when she is based in Southampton in 2021?
  3. Dies anyone know at what price shares are trading ?
  4. We were booked on from 19 March. Got our FCC two days ago but no sign of our refund yet.
  5. Then that is another untruth from Princess. Have read of many, many people who had cancelled cruise dates in March who have also heard nothing and received nothing. People are getting really angry with Princess and I think this will cost them a lot of loyal cruisers.
  6. Not true. Our 19th March cruise was cancelled on 12th March. Have had nothing, neither FCC nor Refund and in fact had a communication from my TA two weeks ago that if we continued to press for the refund, it could take ‘many months’. Yet I read constantly of cudtomers with cancelled cruises after our cruise date who have had both their refund and FCC. I am seriously of the opinion that we will receive nothing back and will be forced to take a short period credit notefrom our TA if we want to get any value at all out of this cancelled cruise fiasco. If this proves to be the case, then ‘never again Princess Cruises’.
  7. Thanks, will try a search but not sure how to do that now. It was easier on the previous CC version.
  8. Is there a list of movies being shown currently (and over the next 8 weeks)?
  9. Excellent. Same advice as us. Have ordered a couple of pairs of trekking trousers in the sale and will wear them in all our SA ports, along with a long sleeved cotton top. We just have to update a couple of jabs and renew our passports on Monday and we are all set. Have already set up our cruise wardrobes in a spare bedroom. Only need to sort out what to do with currencies and we are all set 😀
  10. Thanks for the info. We are doing a full day tour in Rio visiting the usual must see sites and a half day city tour in Salvador. Think we really just need the innoculation/exemption certification for entry into Martinique and St Kitts. I am sure a good DEET lotion/spray will be sufficient 🤞 will make sure we wear appropriate clothing. We sail on 19th March.
  11. Had our consultation - £10 fee Which is only charged if no further action taken. He took full medical and itinerary details and said that as we were not going near the Amazon and because we are both in our early 70s, he recommended the exemption certificate. He said after age 60-70+ your immune system is gradually reducing and it is a live vaccine. So thats what we did. £30 each and it just lasts for the length of the cruise. He said the yellow fever mosquitos are active during the day so we should use a strong DEET repellant while in any yellow fever area. hope this helps 🙂
  12. Thats how I understand it. Have asked question about St Kitts and Martinique several times and people respond that they never have injections for Caribbean (and neither have I) BUT they never travel to either of those two islands direct from a yellow fever area. Hope I get it sorted on Friday. Will post how I get on.
  13. We are going to a travel clinic on Friday to get advice. Do not really want the innoculation at our age - 72 and 70, so really want the exemption certificate. Will see what they advise. No way I am travelling to Argentina and then getting turned away. If they say we need the innoculation, so be it ☹️
