  1. Here is some speculation, in the absence of facts: 😉 https://malcolmoliver.wordpress.com/2020/07/29/carnival-fascination-and-imagination-to-leave-the-fleet/
  2. Is Fred Olsen the only line that still does not provide a proper lunch on embarkation day. Previously I have been offed a few finger sandwiches.
  3. CMV were often 'more affordable' than Olsen.
  4. CMV generally had three ship serving UK reginal ports and some very affordable fares. I think Olsen may retain 5 or 6 ships in order to attract CMV business. The Olsen product is probably the most similar to CMV's on offer.
  5. I cruised on both ships, some years back. Boudicca had been re-fitted and looked more contemporary. Black Watch was looking a little old fashioned in terms of decor. Is there much difference between the two now, in terms of decor?
  6. It's a tragedy. I fear that CMV's traditional little ships will be scrapped.
  7. I last cruised on Braemar in 1998. She did not handle, choppy seas, so well. Doe she handle them any better now she's ben lengthened?
  8. Great news, although I guess we lose Black Watch and Boudicca (TBC). You can get an idea of what Borealis's interiors might be like here:
  9. Carnival has recently announced that they are going to dispose of at least six ships, brand wide. Many wonder if P&O's oldest/smallest ship will be on the 'hit list'? See article: https://wp.me/PfRKD-7Q2 What do you think?
  10. I'm not sure if this story about CMV crew repatriation has been posted here yet, somewhere? link: https://wp.me/pfRKD-7Rh
