  1. Still no news from NCL. However this looks interesting This August, Virgin Voyages' shiny new ship Scarlet Lady will be sailing from Portsmouth around England's southern coast — and Virgin Red members can get early access to tickets.
  2. And now Celebrity announce UK cruises this summer. NCL where are you? Discover the newly revolutionised Celebrity Silhouette, sailing brand new itineraries around the UK from July 2021 - plus get your drinks, Wi-Fi and tips always included.
  3. And now Royal Caribbean announce UK cruises from Southampton. Decent new ship too, just like MSC. SUMMER HOLIDAYS FROM SOUTHAMPTON • JULY 2021 ANTHEM OF THE SEAS
  4. Looks like MSC are doing exactly this.....round Britain cruises for UK people only. NCL leaving all that pent up cash on the table. http://static.contactlab.it/img/spacer.gif Here at MSC Cruises we love our UK guests so much that we've got a special surprise in store for you. Our new flagship MSC Virtuosa will sail around the British Isles this summer starting from 20th May, for UK holidaymakers only! Sale
  5. But didn't those sailings have some non-UK ports, e.g. Cork, Le Havre, Iceland? These new sailings will be something like Southampton, Portland, Belfast, Inverness, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Southampton....maybe some clockwise, some anti-clockwise.
  6. Anyone else think the recently cancelled Norwegian Encore, Jewel, and Jade will be redeployed to the UK this summer/autumn?
  7. Which is where this thread started, because of all the unknowns with the different countries and their vaccine coverage and their infection rates, I can see single country only cruises being scheduled over the summer.
  8. No way is any cruise company going to risk being the virus capital of the high seas. They're all going vaccine only, possibly with some exemptions for those unable to get the vaccine.
  9. As if by magic, more justification for "round UK only " cruises appears https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/overseas-travel-ban-extended-until-july-due-to-third-wave-fears-p0t06k0bg
  10. I guess they would give him a bell to wear round his neck..... Yes I agree somewhere between no hope and Bob Hope of anything in Italy/Spain/France this summer. Here is a link to the P&O plans https://travelweekly.co.uk/news/cruise/po-cruises-plans-uk-staycation-sailings-this-summer - never been on P&O, was waiting till I was in my dotage. UK sailings will replace cruises on Arcadia, Aurora, Azura and Ventura which have been cancelled until the end of August and on Britannia and Iona until the end of September.
  11. As the EU seems to be going to hell in a handcart, with their disastrous vaccine procurement programme, and now with a third wave taking hold across mainland Europe, I can't see any cruise ships in the EU this summer. Conversely, the UK has had a terrible pandemic, but now looks to be under control with over 50% of adults now vaccinated with at least one jab. Is there any sign of "round the UK" sailings being scheduled, similar to what P&O have announced? You could probably deploy every NCL ship supposed to be in Europe, into the UK, and fill every one of them, as there is so much pent up
  12. Some real world, as opposed to trials, vaccine efficacy... https://news.sky.com/story/covid-19-vaccine-rollout-linked-to-85-and-94-drop-in-coronavirus-hospital-admissions-in-scotland-study-shows-12225532 The COVID-19 vaccines being used in the UK could reduce a person's risk of being admitted to hospital by as much as 94% four weeks after the first dose, new data suggests. Experts examined coronavirus hospital admissions in Scotland among people who have had their first jab and compared them to those who had not yet received a vaccine. Scientists from the
  13. All the Westbound cruises are available to book this Autumn/Fall, however *all* those ships are currently in the US, and there are no bookable cruises Eastbound. Anyone know anything e.g. they will travel to Europe empty, they are already in Europe, they will announce dates when the lockdown is over, the Westbound cruises will all be cancelled and the ships will stay in the US this summer (cancelling all the summer/fall Europe 2020 cruises).
