  1. Yes it includes the coffee and tea in Cafe al Bacio. I’m not sure if it also includes the alcoholic coffees - hopefully someone else can answer. We always upgrade to the premium package for about £10 each a day for better wines and decent spirits
  2. We were hoping to spot some cruise ships sailing by when we go to our static caravan in Fife. With the current Scottish government ban on cruise ships this unfortunately won’t be happening.
  3. I think you would have to find a way to access BBC iplayer online using a VPN and search for The Cruise
  4. Yes that’s what has been stated in the news. There is currently a push to try to have those vaccinated who have previously refused it.
  5. Yes that’s part of the reason why we haven’t booked anything. I thought the Scottish Government were to make an announcement about this last week but I haven’t seen anything on the news.
  6. In Scotland we’re not receiving any proof of vaccination so we’re not willing to book any cruises or holidays yet.
  7. I’ve received it in Scotland and the time for the webinar is 6.00 GMT so it may be only for U.K. Maybe it’s to compensate for the Alaska one which we weren’t invited to.
  8. Just completed new activity - answer questions on Europe for 20 power up points.
  9. My favourites are Sydney and Venice but New York was great as well.
  10. We sailed in Concierge on Solstice in February. We chose it to get a cabin on the hump with a larger balcony. We also like the extra points as we are not quite at Elite. The embarkation day lunch and the invite to the helipad while in Doubtful sound were also appreciated.
  11. Looking forward to reading this. We cruised Auckland to Melbourne in February on Solstice. We were very lucky to get back to the U.K. less than 2 weeks before we were locked down.
  12. I thought all M class balcony staterooms had the bed by the bathroom, but I could be wrong.
  13. Have you thought about an apartment? We prefer to stay in one for the extra space. We stayed for a week in the Arise Ivy and Eve apartments which we enjoyed. Convenient for South Bank, CBD and train station.
  14. I would like to try Holland America but I’m afraid the buffet closing at 8pm and bars deserted after 11pm would be a deal breaker for me. Although we are aged early 60’s we like to eat after 8pm then either relax with a drink or go to some venue to dance.
