  1. Hi All, I’m in Bermuda and our airspace and marine traffic is closed except for cargo. All schools and churches are closed, along with government ordered spas, gyms, barbers, hairdressers. Many office and government business are working from home. A lot of the hotel and guest properties are closed. Anyone who has come into the island in the past week is under mandatory 14-day self-quarantine. There were idiots not obeying this law so are now being fined. Many restaurants have switched to pickup or delivery. Social distancing is the new norm but many feel the shops still open should close for now. There are worse places to be right now. Wishing you all the best across the globe.
  2. My pleasure. I don’t post often but I do keep up with things. 😉
  3. AmaWaterways have posted in their loyalty Facebook group the following: We would like to take this opportunity to inform you about the latest information regarding your upcoming river cruise with AmaWaterways. Your health and safety, and the wellbeing of our staff and crew, are of the utmost importance and we must be vigilant and responsible in ensuring your safety during these uncertain times. As a result of the recent travel restrictions, we are voluntarily suspending the operations of our European river cruise fleet and cancelling all of our Europe river cruises through April 25, 2020. With this in mind, we want to assure you that your long-awaited travel plans will be protected. We are therefore providing two options for you. • 1. Future Cruise Credit: We are offering you a Future Cruise Credit (FCC) equal to 115% of the value of your AmaWaterways purchased services, redeemable on any Europe or Mekong River sailing through December 31, 2022. • 2. Full Monetary Refund: If you prefer, you may elect to instead receive a full monetary refund on all services purchased through AmaWaterways. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding your river cruise cancellation, FCC or refund, please contact your travel advisor as we are in direct communication with them regarding current developments on our policies. If you choose to contact us directly, please note we are experiencing a higher than normal call volume, as expected. We are disappointed that we are unable to fulfill your journey at this time, but we are confident that our ships will make a successful return to the rivers soon and hope to welcome you aboard one of AmaWaterways’ many future sailings.
  4. Uniworld have posted something on their website and Facebook page as well. They are through April 23 in Europe.

  6. Yep, just read this. Let’s see if others follow suit. I see Princess has followed with their ocean voyages. Thank you for sharing.
  7. I know... so excited about. Thanks for this Host with the Most 😉.
  8. Friday is now Mary Prince Day ( https://www.gov.bm/articles/mary-prince-day). The 2 days are called Cup Match, a truly unique Bermudian holiday. Go to the game, if you want a truly wonderful Bermudian experience, go to the game. And both ferries and buses run on public holiday schedule.
  9. Ferry into town, walk up to the bus depot by City Hall, take one of the St. George’s buses. Enjoy the day.
  10. I started river cruising at 41. Love it. I’ve met lots of people in their 40s on river cruises. Grab it and go for it!
  11. We used AMA for our air travel in November 2018 for JFK/Amsterdam/Zurich/jfk. Great service, amazing price. We’ve booked our Cambodia/Vietnam flights with AMA for August. Flying Emirates through Dubai. Also very happy with price and service we received from AMA.
  12. AmaPrima’s mystery wine tour has begun. On our way to Utrecht and I can see that we’re heading to Gent by Tuesday. Sebastian nor our captain knows where we’re going after day 5.
  13. See you there gadugger. Heading to JFK later for our flight to AMS. The mystery tour will be epic! Poor Rhine.
  14. Hi gadugger... our TA is on holiday so we called one of her colleagues today and said could they check with AMA. She called and said AMA sent out the letter yesterday to TAs and they sent her a copy for us today. I think Cruise Critic’s messaging system is down or I’d send you a copy. Again thanks to notamermaid and GMT and all the others who have posted about the river situation.
  15. The credit is full amount you paid for this cruise to use on another AMA cruise. To be used in next 3 years. I’m on this trip with holacandita. Got our letter from AMA today. The other option was to cancel this cruise for a full refund. As holacandita states, AMA will get us to Basel for the post cruise extension. AMA also asks for those who are traveling indepentantly from Basel to give them all those details. Sounds like they are trying to get everyone to Basel regardless. Mum and I are going to take the revised itinerary, enjoy the fact we’re on holiday and go for the full credit for another cruise. We’re happy we get to do our 4 night post trip as planned. HBR777 - if we end in Düsseldorf we take train to Basel. If we’re ending in Amsterdam we fly to Basel.
