  1. My wife and I were booked on the TA from Galveston in a few months time and it’s still listed on my RC upcoming cruise page. We have not received any email notification about the cruise but obviously we know it’s cancelled. When I checked the “make payment now” tab and it’s still there and if I was that way inclined, I could give them some cash (which obviously I will not). Note in the UK we have to make the final payment 57 days before the cruise starts.
  2. Well after today presentation from our (Dear) leader here in Scotland, certainly need some cheering up as she tells us she is looking from next week to closing all food takeaways and even click and collect from various stores. Thankfully we have enough alcohol in our house to last until mid summer so we should be fine. However, to continue my previous post and some crazy answers, see some others from various quiz shows in the UK (mainly Tipping Point). Q - Manuel Valls is Prime Minster of which European country? A - Africa Q - St Patrick banished snakes from which European cou
  3. We are very fond and familiar with the show “A place in the sun”. It’s a bit of escapism just now, making us quite jealous of better times but we know these times will be back with us soon. We also watch “Tipping Point” on telly whilst preparing our evening meal, and we usually get great entertainment with some of the answers given. Unbelievable how some of these people get on tv at all. Here are some examples of answers given this week - Q - What English County has a black flag with a white cross?A - WalesQ - Fletcher Christian led a mutiny on which ship?A - The Titani
  4. That’s an expensive fine for sure. I do a lot of road trips in the USA/Canada and over the years I have done more than 200,000 miles without any incident and only stopped once by the police. This was in rural Alabama and I must admit the speed limit had been reached and perhaps exceeded ever so slightly. I was driving a rented Camaro so I think I had a good excuse. Anyway, the policeman came up to my door and told me I was breaking the speed limit. I replied and he immediately he noted my strong Scottish accent telling me that his father was born in Scotland. For some reason, I did
  5. I just discovered this thread - great reading indeed. Personally, I took early retirement in March last year and the plan was to do many cruises and even more road trips but obviously this did not go to plan. Thankfully we did get a trip in before all this kicked off doing a Cruise out of Galveston last January followed by a Texas and Louisiana road trip. So I had to find something to keep me busy. We got a black lab puppy in May so many walks with him and so that keeps me semi fit. However, we decided to make use of some space in my back garden and we built a pub. It’s been used a
  6. I trust you are not including the Sunday Sport in your list of “pretty good” media? I still remember the headline they had some years back “ World War II bomber found on the moon”.
  7. Just a follow up to this. I did not hear anything back within the promised 72 hours so called them up. I spoke to a pleasant gent who told me my request to L & S was declined due to different amount of nights - 14 on the new one, 12 on the one I wanted to change from. (my original TA was from Cape Liberty to Southampton on the Anthem). I accepted this and went on to book the Allure for April 22 instead. I just looked up my bookings on their website today and guess what - they have actually done the L & S as I had originally requested. I now have two TA’s booked for April 2
  8. I have absolutely no issue with having to get a card showing you have had a Covid vaccine. Currently (certainly in the UK) some dodgy folks are offering fake cards for sale - https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9038377/TikTok-user-advertises-fake-Covid-vaccine-ID-cards-sale-just-5-shock-video-post.html It’s actually quite common to have to carry a proof of vaccine card. When I was working in Africa few years ago, if I did not have my Yellow Fever card, I was not getting into the country. Pretty certain the Royal and numerous airlines and possibly countr
  9. 2022 is indeed pessimistic. Once the vaccine has been distributed we can expect things to change quite rapidly in the following few months. I am 57 with no underlying health issues and I expect the vaccine (UK) by the end of March at the latest. This should be the case in many countries. We have TA cruises booked for March and April and they certainly will not go ahead but our one in October should. I also expect the USA to open up for foreign citizens flying in approx March/April. My wife and I have a 2 month road trip booked for Canada/USA arriving 26th May - I certainly expect t
  10. Is this the one you are on? https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/dec/09/singapore-cruise-to-nowhere-ends-after-passenger-tests-positive-for-covid-19
  11. Thanks for this. I just used the online form to try and L&S my Anthem TA cruise from April 21 to the April 22 one from Fort Lauderdale to Barcelona.
  12. Really? Have seen any news from the UK recently? The only thing that will put us in the right direction is when the vaccine is actually approved to be used and a large percentage of the population have already received it.
  13. My wife and I are also booked for that cruise but we fully expect that not to happen. We are also booked on the TA one from New York to Southampton in April, but like last one, I will be most surprised if this happens. I expect the first one we can actually board is the TA from Southampton to Miami end of next year.
  14. Looking to lift and shift a 2021 Transatlantic cruise on the Anthem in April 21 to a date in 2022. Do we know when these schedules will be released? I have already booked some 2022 cruises (February) so surely we must be finding out about the TA ones soon. We have the 16 night TA one booked from Galveston in March 21, so perhaps 2 TA ones in a few month is too much hence the L & S. Very hopeful we will be back to some sort of normal by then.
  15. If there are cruise ships sailing, then the quarantine/self isolating will be over.
