  1. My question is with the vaccines. Do you think cruise lines in the future will be able to enforce the vaccine mandate that all crew and passengers are vaccinated? At the moment those whom are most at need are being vaccinated and this is not the demographic of cruise ship employees. also we seem to have a world where different vaccines are being used, some are researched as being more effective than others. this said will the cruise lines and the Australian boarder force be able to state for those cruising or entering this country or New Zealand, tha
  2. BTW I am still planning my river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam in December this year. APT is holding all our money as credit. If that doesn’t go ahead we will keep moving the river cruise forward.
  3. I would be really happy to book a coastal viewing cruise even if the ship doesn’t stop anywhere. The Australian coast is spectacular. We just did Hobart and what a beautiful place it was. The food and wine is some of the best in the world. Tasmania really is a hidden gem. that said I would be happy to cruise from Melbourne to Tasmania.
  4. I think it was his travel agent being behind. It was the majestic repositioning cruise which as it’s not here we guessed it would not need to reposition.
  5. What I am trying to book is the sapphire princess departing Melbourne 20 December 2022. Caribe deck 2 interconnected cabins balcony opposite the self service laundry.
  6. Yep they are now offering sailings up until October 2022. might be a good opportunity to use some credit
  7. My father just messaged me to state that his March 2021 repositioning cruise from Melbourne to Hong Kong had been cancelled. hoping to Christmas cruise in December 2022.
  8. We are now looking at cruises to New Zealand in February or March 2022 hoping that the September 2022 itinerary is released soon.
  9. Thanks for the replies. The apt cruise can be moved to a different date if needed. We have moved it from September 2020 to April 2021 and now it’s sitting at Christmas 2021. If need be we will move to April 2022, then September 2022 then Christmas 2022. We now have the flights included package which makes moving a lot easier. will see what princess is offering in may 2021.
  10. The young girl was truly inspirational and I hope the future brings happiness for her. the helicopter pilots whom raced out there to help should receive bravery medals. True hero’s and a credit to their country. As for the official rescue teams the call was made to delay the rescue efforts. They did what they had to do with the information that they had at hand. We can all critique after the fact but none of us were there in the moment. a sad day for all involved including the cruise line and tour operator.
  11. Also very happy that we got our ovation cruise in before the world went crazy in 2020. yes I’m excited to start cruising as soon as I can!
  12. Our Europe Budapest to Amsterdam river cruise has been rescheduled for Christmas 2021 but on APT. APT advised that due to this being a Christmas markets cruise that it should be festive and more family friendly and that they will be happy to have us on board. Dads 75th birthday will be on the cruise. He can’t think of a better way to celebrate and is happy to take gifts of fine wine.
  13. We are looking at cruises around New Zealand as every time we plan and book for a cruise there it is cancelled! also looking at repositioning cruises as we love the different ports and offerings
