  1. Looks like the ban will be implemented from August 1st for vessels weighing over 25,000 tonnes, longer than 180 meters or that employ more than a set amount of fuel in maneuvering. Seems this has come to a conclusion after UNESCO proposed putting Venice on the World Heritage watchlist due to its failure to ban large ships. Will be interesting to see what cruise lines now do with regards to visiting Venice
  2. The BBC has just reported that Venice is banning cruise ships from entering the city's Giudecca canal and large ships will now have to dock at the city's industrial port until a permanent solution is found. Wonder if Silverse ships fall in this category.
  3. Dont think I will get anything for this one point but its a start
  4. As Cunard are owned by Carnival Lines I wonder if this delay in sailing will be extended to other parts of the company.
  5. Seems to be that it is taking a lot longer in some countries than in others. Would love to think being done in date order using the date the claim was made but from a quick read of posts on this forum not the case
  6. Having been on another lines shopping with the Chef walk in Bergen would love a similar concept on Silversea. One of the things he bought was black cod he that had been landed that day and was served in one of the restaurants that night, one of the best meals I have ever eaten at sea.
  7. Read that and it applies from 1 June 2020, until end December 2020 only. if you are booked in April and May the 30 day cancellation does not apply. So if Silversea don’t cancel the cruise but you do then it would appear the penalties are much higher.
  8. Have I missed something that covers people with departures in April or May out of Italian ports?
  9. I do hope you have let Silversea know that you are showing signs of Coronavirus so they can, if necessary, advice other passengers and crew you came into contact with
  10. You beat us by .5 point. We are in Indochine tonight as have an invitation from Gabor the shore concierge manager but perhaps meet up after trivia tomorrow (winner buys the drinks!)
  11. My husband and I will be there as going to do team trivia, which I expect will end at 5.30. husband has a white polo sweatshirt on
  12. Hi Kentuckysharon Would be lovely to meet up for a drink, what time is best for you?
  13. We are staying at the Shangri La Kowloon, arriving in on the 17th in the afternoon. My husband goes to HKG regularly for business and we were there this time last year so a quick visit this time. Haven't received an alert but the volcano eruption has been on the news so aware that we may have a change of itinerary if it continues. When would you like to meet up on board?
  14. Looking forward to meeting on the Spirit. Are you staying in HKG before the cruise?
  15. My husband is pretty sure the call will go ahead, he’s been juggling timings for a few calls during the trip and thought he had it all sorted but as we are at sea the previous day when they originally wanted to do this call they have suggested the next day. If the other person is still interested go with them. Let me know what they decide. Sorry to have to back out but at the end of the day him working is what enables us to go on these fantastic cruises and because he can be available for calls when we are in ports is why we cruise.
