    Queen Elizabeth Q027 not going to Amsterdam

    When we first cruised, the ships docked at Rotterdam. Then they started using the sea lock at IJmuiden to get to Amsterdam. They are now apparently building a new bigger sea lock to be possibly finished this year.

    Queen Elizabeth Q027 not going to Amsterdam

    €16,000 for nothing and more than that on bigger ships. Also MSC and CMV according to this CC article: https://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/news/3619/ "Cruise Lines Cancel Amsterdam Calls Over Tourist Tax"

    Where to stay in Southampton

    Myself, I would not recommend the new Southampton Harbour Hotel. We stayed there in November and didn't have a very good experience and it's also vastly over-priced.

    Mediterranean cruises

    The QE is missing from Southampton all of next year so that only leaves the QV to do the Med and other Europe round-trips. It is also interesting to read post No 40 on the link below which tells of the ideas they have where the ships might be positioned once the new ship is in service https://boards.cruisecritic.co.uk/topic/2485158-cunard-new-ship-details-revealed-what-we-know/?page=2

    New Cunard Website

    The best thing is to look at various cruise agents' websites. Some of them give cabin numbers. They also often work out cheaper than Cunard.
  6. This is the sort of thing I've read about on the Cunard forum - not hundreds though I might add. There was once someone from the US who actually admitted that they had booked two or three crossings with kennel space on the QM2 because they hadn't decided which date suited them best. They would cancel the unwanted dates nearer the time. They didn't get very kind comments. And this is one of the reasons why you sometimes see booked cabins re-appear (other reasons could be illness etc.).

    New Cunard Website

    I regularly delete cookies but this time I have also deleted cached web content and that has done the trick! So thanks for the reminder. Well, I don't much like the new layout. The lead price is now Inside rather than Balcony. And for one month I just looked at, I had to click through 3 pages rather than just scrolling down to the end of the month. I got to a Canaries cruise which has a map of a fjords cruise!

  9. Yes you can cancel and rebook if the price drops. We did this a few years ago. We lost the deposit, OBC and free parking but we still saved a few hundred pounds. Also we lost the cabin we had chosen as the reduced price was on a saver fare where you don't get choice of cabin number. In the US, you wouldn't lose your deposit if the price drops before the balance is due.

    I just tried again and now the old website is back. I don't know what's going on.

    The new Cunard UK website is back and also the 404 Error pages. Sigh.

    I'm still seeing the old website and can get all prices. I've been doing quite a bit of searching today after not being able to when viewing the new website.

    New Cunard Website

    It's the opposite for me. I did get the new website the other day but now I'm back to getting the old website and it seems to be working perfectly with all cruises and fares as normal.

    I just looked and it seems like they've put the old website back on. Which is probably just as well as they must have missed out on some bookings for the last day.
