  1. Again I feel that some on this forum are outside the general feeling about cruising. On different forum there is still a great easier to continue cruising and with P&O. Questions like this have been put elsewhere and received replies from hundreds of posters and not just 5/6. Often within a couple of hours of the question being put. Personally we will cruise again with P&O if we can. We have given up on Oct and are looking to meet March or our next fix. It is quite clear that cruising is in for a rough ride. None of the cruise lines has come out well in this so I see no point in going elsewhere as they have all used the same methods of FCC’s and long waits for refunds. You only have to look at other lines forums for that. The main complaint now seems to be the uncertainty of everything that is happening but then again that is across the board.

  2. Great ferry I have heard. Not a lot of space for cars, apparently. :) Sent from my iPad using Forums

  4. I am not saying that they will actually cruise only they are booking now. On top of those already booked.
  5. As ever prices are controlled by a computer algorithm. More bookings induce a price increase. With thousands of people transferring to 2021 it is not surprising at all that bookings are well up and way above what the program expects and therefore the prices go up. It is just simple supply and demand. Assuming that the cruise lines actually survive all of this I would fully expect that most 2021 cruises will be over subscribed. In the long run cruise lines have to survive but will not do this by pricing themselves out of the market. Sent from my iPad using Forums

  7. In that case cruising totally finished. Never been on any cruise when the majority of cruisers have not been over 70. The flaw in the argument is that at the moment over 70’s have no extra restrictions on top of under 70’s. Unless they have underlying issues. They were mentioned at the very start but never again. They are not on the list of 1.5 million who have health issues who have to completely self isolate. They can shop and exercise etc. Just another example of flawed journalism. Lazy and sensationalist.
  8. We tend to keep away from the shop as we are running out of room for any more. [emoji1] Sent from my iPad using Forums
  9. Agreed although I have not bought any peppers or asparagus of late. The Indian and Chinese ready meals, very good BTW were still buy 3 for £6.00 and the cheese slices offer was still on. I do realize that we are in a somewhat privileged position not having our income reduced.
  10. Not noticed this at our local Morrisons, many offers are still on. I do all the shopping on my big scooter so I have a good idea of prices and I have not seen increases. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  11. Quite a few come from the ’Teapottery’ in Layburn North Yorkshire. It has a factory, small, and a showroom/cafe. Sent from my iPad using Forums

  15. To be honest we or rather, I, have found little difference in what I do. Apart from going to Rotary once a week and 41 club once a month I tend to be in the house quite a lot, especially in the winter. My wife ends to be out more often but not a great deal more. Being both retired we have not been impacted by loss of income. In fact we are spending considerably less, as some others must find. I worked out it must be in the the region of £60 to £70 per week. I use the Internet a lot and there seems to be far more things to interest me. Utube has a vast amount of material and of course we have sky Q so more programs to watch than you could watch in 10 years of lock down. Sent from my iPad using Forums
