  1. As always governments will bail out firms and industries that suit them and their friends and allies.
  2. And of course what's to say people will be allowed to work on ships just now? Is it safe to have a few hundred workers on board if you cant have passengers? It's all part of the current madness.
  3. And now it seems the government plan is about to change too Massive lockdown expected. So the herd immunity plan looks like it's off now Welcome to the modern day dark age.
  4. No they haven't. But who do you think has been advising all of these separate organisations? Football wouldnt stop for anything in the uk unless someone was pressuring them.
  5. If the government allowed Manchester united to play soccer tomorrow there would be 70,000 there.
  6. Oh give over. Yes everything in now banned in the uk. Banned by a scared government and a rabid scaremongering press. But fear didnt stop 70,000 every day at Cheltenham this week. It didnt stop our national conference on Thursday night or visits to many very busy pubs afterwards. It didnt stop myself and family going out to a very busy restaurant last night either. I was working in London all week and everyone is cracking on as normal. But of course the bbc this morning is searching like mad to fi
  7. As if getting a virus and being quarantined wasnt it. This would flip over the egde, or maybe even overboard.
  8. I am sorry but the way people are talking about the end of the cruise industry is just self fulfilling nonsense. Its almost like some want it to happen. And whats wrong with the cruiseline giving credits instead of a cash refund? The cruise industry isnt to blame for coronavirus, China is. And if my next cruise is cancelled I will be booking the same with my credits as soon as possible. Surely thats what you will all do, if you love cruising as much as you claim?
  9. Of course my username was intended to raise a chuckle in itself. So I asked the question but cant answer it myself. Some interesting choices though and food for thought for next years cruise. As long as we all dont become zombiefied prior to that.
  10. No. The world will never be the same again. We will be living in caves and drinking ditch water. We're doomed.
  11. And then someone scores and they all cuddle. They are either really stupid or the no handshake rule is just idiotic.
  12. I cant wait for the shows where everyone has to be 3 apart from the next person. That'll make us all safe. Anyone else see the shebelives soccer this weekend? Players shaking elbows instead of hands. But them drinking out of the same water bottles. Lol. Honestly if the world hasn't gone bonkers then I am a monkeys uncle.
  13. Probably been done before but this place is as depressing as a miserable Sunday. So what's your favourite ship and why?
  14. I honestly believe too many people have watched too many zombie movies. Its completely crazy behaviour from what you would have assumed were sane people. We had it in the uk with brexit. People are so stupid its almost impossible to explain.
  15. Italy is unfortunate, or fortunate, that is has one of the oldest, if not the oldest population in the world. It probably shouldn't be a surprise that is being adversely affected compared to other countries. Some parts of italy are quite densely populated too. And is a very religious country and therefore lots of people spend a lot if time together. I read somewhere that the average age of those that have died is 81 there.
  16. I dont disagree with any of what yoh have said here. And I am not that young either and have elderly relatives. Maybe it's my cynical disposition but I still believe the media are making this whole situation a lot worse. And in this litigation era the politicians are running scared. It's like the weather forecasters these days always predict apocalyptic conditions when it turns out to be just very windy.
  17. Information isn't. 24 hour media news chammel frenzies are. Dont you think the media is loving this?.
  18. Yes well this current farce has proven many people are ridiculously stupid. So giving them facts isn't going to help them. They are too busy stocking up on toilet rolls and tinned beans ready for the apocalypse.
  19. Define elegant ship. Or rather dont.it might lead on to how would should dress in such elegance. Or how only the etiquettely trained should travel in such elegance. I want a buffet on these elegant ships just so I can throw a sausage at you.
  20. Maybe we should all just go and hide and live in a cave. The world, including the politicians, has gone bonkers. I am currently on a very busy train and guess what? Most people are just carrying on as normal. Yet the media, the political classes, and a certain element of the public have gone completely off the rails. This would never have happened pre social media.its time to ban 24 hour news channels and the internet. Barking mad.
  21. Sorry but I read some of that. You sure that wasnt written by the scriptwriters for 28 days later?
