  1. It’s been a no go to change from S or M class to E class for weeks. You can move from M to S class. I’m really surprised they stated you qualified in the first place.
  2. You were not tempted to hold on a while, March next year is a long way off.
  3. We would personally not cruise this year but may still take our cruise next Feb if available. A lot can happen between May and February.
  4. Yep, I’m afraid I agree with other in this case, outside the parameters.
  5. It’s not been great but I guess that given the vast majority of cruise lines seem to have the same complaints it’s just something people will need to move on from or limit themselves to one or two lines that dealt with it better. But in a way that’s just cutting your nose off to spite your face.
  6. I have no idea if one figure or another is true. I can only speak for my wife’s family. Her mother has died and both her brother and sister were hospitalised, her brother was a day or so away from death, they asked him permission to put him in a coma if needed and did he wish to be resuscitated. He was on morphine and using a c pap. We have put back mums funeral twice so brother and sister can attend and brother may still need to be pushed in a wheelchair. Both in their 50s.I guess when some people state it’s all a bit of a con they tend to be the ones not badly effected. Personally as a couple we are not risk averse but having seen this first hand it’s one hell of a frightening experience.
  7. Personally I don’t care if I have to make the bed, or if the room is not cleaned for two weeks. We can run over the bathroom in 10 minutes if we need to every two or three days, making the bed takes 30 seconds.No big deal.
  8. We will see but at the end of the day it’s up to others to make that decision. Should a vaccine shot not be mandatory ( I suspect it won’t) then each individual needs to make a personal decision on whether they choose to cruise or not. Personally it won’t put us off but others may well choose to no longer cruise.
  9. I think it’s highly unlikely cruise lines would demand everyone has the vaccine shot to board. I may be wrong but I’m not aware any such requirement has ever been in place for any other vaccine in the past. The stats highlighted in the article above pretty much rule the cruise lines out from ever making it mandatory, way to high a percentage who won’t get the shot.
  10. I would not wait that length of time full stop.
  11. It’s worth remembering that while these are smaller ships next to some of the huge newer ones they are still 90000 tons, so hardly small. Our first cruise was on the Thomson Emerald, a converted Russian vessel. We thought it looked massive when we boarded, it was 29000.
  12. I can’t see any indications that suggest cruise lines will just close down until there is a vaccine and just about everyone is inoculated, I’m not even convinced they will demand you have one to cruise any more than they will demand one to fly or stay in resorts. Could be wrong but to me they are looking to put in place procedures to limit the risk of contamination, not wait until we have a vaccine.
