  1. We are the same over 70s except one of us also has Diabetes 2, and high blood pressure. So probably not acceptable to sail. I really don't want to be passing more money to Celebrity UK as final payment for the Apex autumn TA, unless i'm certain of a refund, not interested in FCC at this time. How did you get an extension on final pay, was it a TAs decision or Celebrity please?
  2. They don't need to be set up for full hospitals, isolation rooms a plenty though with full facilities to supply food, linens etc. There are at least wto ships docked in the UK at Tibury that have been donated for that purpose...
  3. Taking on MSC and NCL, that'd be nice...
  4. That, exactly what I would do if required - a little less on the waistline won't matter once in a while...
  5. Thanks Janny444, so the day we arrive in Dublin is turnaround day for those 2 groups, one lot off, t'other on. Shall have to keep my arrangements fluid as to how early us mere mortals that are staying on board will be able to alight. Need to get the train to Carlow on one of the days...
  6. Hello all, we've recently booked the 3 nighter leaving Bristol 10/10 to Liverpool via Dublin. Is this mini cruise part of a longer cruise, does anyone know? Thanks in advance, Douglas.
  7. Hate to disagree with a host, but we've been on the Explorer since it left Sydney on 29th March and yes, people wearing shorts have been turned away from the MDR, also the dress code in the Diamond Lounge relating to shorts has been enforced as well...
  8. Thanks, I could have written the same myself and added a few more bits. Lol. The telling thing about Epic's design is that the order for EPIC2 was cancelled and it remains a one off. We have sailed 4 large ships out of the 50+ cruises we have taken so far - Epic, Escape and RCCLs Allure and Oasis. Of these only Epic is a no, never again at any price. Even though we didn't think much to Spirit in comparison with Dawn/Jade/Star we would still sail her with the right itinerary/price, But Epic no, just too many negatives and service issues.
  9. That's fine, as you've probably guessed I'm not into computers and complication. To me and many others a computer and the internet are tools to be used to make life easier whether in a work or home context, nothing else. This "upgrade" does neither for me. I get that dinosaurs like me have polarised views though, and respect that others will think differently.
  10. Because the upgrade to all these "really nice features" has lost the easy to use functionality that most of us know and used, especially those of us that used the no longer available app on mobile phones.
  11. So replace with an identical to use new tech version of what was then, so the end user sees little to no difference. Bit like replacing Windows 7 with Windows 10 but keeping the front page the same which is possible when you know how!
  12. Thing is, who wanted all these changes - I very much doubt it was the end users, us!
  13. Well, well. But why not simply text saying like as per the text saying quote on the other side. Plain and easy, also balances the page layout. Thanks. But why not a mass email to all users explaining all the changes and how to's in plain English.
  14. No, it wasn't widely reported for those who used the App on a mobile phone. I receive regular marketing emails from CC but not one about this change, if they can send guff I don't need they should be able to send notice of big important change! Frankly this website has overnight gone from a really useful and informative tool to a PITA. And still no "like" button!!
  15. Likewise, the app on my Android phone used to give me easy access to everything I wanted without multiple clicks and pages.
