  1. Morning PC. I cancelled our cruise before it was cancelled by Marella, I’m not sure if it has been cancelled or not at this moment, given the lifting of some travel restrictions,we were due to sail on the 25th July. Our TA said we would lose our deposit (£500) but this was back in March and I figured it was a price worth paying for peace of mind. Do you think I should get onto the TA and push for a refund?

  2. No cruises taking place (and this is ‘Cruise Critic’) so not really surprising. Discussions about refunds, or not, has been done to death by now, so nothing to talk about on here sadly. If I ever go on another cruise, which looks unlikely, it won’t be with Marela.
  3. You may as well take it ASAP Pc. Nobody is cruising anytime soon me thinks. We’re all going to be locked up at the weekend anyway! Anybody want my stash of euros cheap?
  4. I take it most people book direct with TUI? I booked with a well known on line cruise company and have been told 10 weeks before I see the refund of my deposit. A lesson learnt! However, I doubt we will cruise again, which is a shame.
  5. Not cruise related but my son ‘escaped’ Spain over the weekend, driving non stop overnight. They left a cat they had adopted over there ready to come to uk. Now Spain has shut down ‘La Gata’ is costing £10 a night until they can release her for the flight. I can’t see an end to this any time soon. Cruise companies, airlines, retail businesses, they are all very vulnerable. Dunno about you but on so many levels, I’m worried! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  6. I contacted my (on line) TA this morning just to check my refund is going to happen. Her reply was ‘to be honest, all refunds are taking up to 10 weeks now as due to the number of customers we are having to cancel please just bear with us we are at the moment dealing with people stuck in other countries to get them back and informing on cancellations going in the next few days .’ So there it is, it will understandably take a while but it’s a relief to I will get it eventually.

  7. Just heard that Madeira is not only closed to cruise ships, but flights in are also banned! Just out of interest.
  8. Pleased to hear the TUI refund notice still stands. Being a sceptic, I was pretty sure they would get out of it if they could. I’m going to ring my TA tomorrow for an update. If I get any news I’ll post it on here. if mrs S2B and I are trapped for 4 months together, this may be my last post, I won’t survive!
  9. The link was indeed there on Friday, it was what my TA referenced when told her on government advice I wanted to cancel. However, it has been taken down now.
  10. [quote ‘so as the situation is going to get a LOT WORSE I have decided to self isolate. ‘ According to the news earlier, everyone age 70 and over have self isolate for 4 months. I wonder how they will enforce that? Now that will have a major effect on the cruise market. Sent from my iPad using Forums

  12. Yes,PC. 25th July, cruise and stay. Usual haunts round the med, including 2 in Italy (!) and some other ports I can’t remember. We would have been staying in Majorca, really nice hotel. Shame! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  13. Hi PC, haven’t got it yet, TA confirmed we will get it though. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  14. This could bring a lot of the cruise companies to their knees. Imagine the overheads of keeping a fleet in ports, paying staff, maintenance etc, with no income and millions in refunds. I just wonder who will be the first to go? Sent from my iPad using Forums
