  1. Sailing bookings have stopped for those in the Netherlands due to increased cases in Italy. The information appeared on the MSC Netherlands page.
  2. https://www.cruisehive.com/carnival-owned-cruise-line-temporarily-pauses-operations/43003?fbclid=IwAR3xbWhG8RF3dwFgNI2lZLOFwWQF0jzTnKmRx_vCMYopwgJTHiUNC25uNZo
  3. Currently we in the UK do not have a choice so any answer would be pointless.
  4. “In response to recent misleading posts on social media, #MSCCruises wishes to make it clear that any suggestions of a halt to its Mediterranean operations are completely false and have no basis in fact. MSC Cruises continues to operate successfully in the Mediterranean thanks to a protocol that has evolved and strengthened since the August restart in response to the evolution of the pandemic ashore. As a result guests, crew and the communities they visit are better protected by ever more stringent measures.” The sale of cruises to those in the Netherlands had been halted due to the rise in cases in Italy,
  5. MSC are not pausing cruises in Europe.
  6. Did cruise lines not suspend until the end of November volunterily ? Also Virgin have cancelled theirs to January 3rd.
  7. Posts on social media today that the Netherlands have advised people there not to visit Italy due to higher case numbers and that MSC there have suspended bookings. Not confirmed at this moment.
  8. Did you mean MSC Fantasia ?
  9. MSC Grandiosa was prevented from disembarking passengers in Malta today after a crew member tested positive for Covid-19. The crew member is in isolation and will be retested at a shore lab when the ship - now on its eighth voyage - reaches its next (and home) port of Genoa.
  10. Videos of them from Meraviglia on YouTube which will likely be the same on the two you mentioned. We had one on Deck 12 on Meraviglia but had issues with the hot tub overheating and only managed to use it twice. We were told that the outside temperature can affect the tub temperature which wasn't really a great help to us.
  11. Spa access is still available with the YC but not the massage, the drink package in Aurea was downgraded to the Easy package, YC comes with a far better package and also WiFi We have sailed in Aurea on four occasions and had the premium drink package before it was downgraded. For our next cruise we decided to move to the YC.
  12. That might have been the way under the old way of cruising, no one knows now what the process is now.
