  1. Logistical challenges mean that care home residents are not top of the list. Care home staff and NHS staff are. Annie
  2. https://www.seatrade-cruise.com/ship-operations/no-coronavirus-board-tuis-mein-schiff-6-greek-authorities-confirm
  3. Let me think about this - who would I trust more tests carried out on a German ship or by the a.n.other nation?? And they then went for another opinion. Alas no testing regime is 100% - (however the Germans are very thorough) what the cruise industry decides to do about that is way above my pay grade
  4. Test results are false positives.
  5. Sorry Reports are the test results are false positives. We in the UK NEVER rely on the Daily Mail which has the well earned nickname Daily Fail. Follow the liveish thread from the ship on the Celebrity board. Annie
  6. FWIW Norway is currently experiencing a very high incidence rate far in excess of the UK. Annie
  7. No worries. My source: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/coronavirus-age-sex-demographics/ FWIW I wish the media would highlight that yes there have been over 126,000 cases but less than 55,000 cases are current. The balance are closed cases. Annie
  8. Check your source. Mortality rate for men 2.8% and 1.7% for women. Annie
  9. Did you keep quiet?? that has been attempted on me but I speak up. Annie
  10. I tip my hat to you. Good health and happy cruising to you. Annie
  11. I am over 65 and my basic travel insurance for Europe is free from my bank. To extend to worldwide including North America costs me £40. This is an annual policy and covers multiple trips normally to 31 days in length. I have 1 pre-existing medical condition which is covered for free.
  12. Neither have I. I am curious what the premiums would be?? Annie
  13. Correct. I did intend to post that info too but forgot. I was an independent traveller and no visa was required. Annie
  14. I was on the same cruise. I think future cruises have less Japanese ports in the itinerary which is a pity - JMO. Petropovlovsk was cold - river still frozen in the town centre and it was May! I do cold btw - I am Scots.There were tendering issues and not all the passengers made it ashore. That port is once and done. The activity team and the CD did themselves proud with a very crammed schedule. I travel solo and if there were solo activities, I don't recall them. That said, it was no hardship and I and a few others formed a very fun internatio
  15. Where does it say 30 items?? It used to but I don't see it now. Annie
  16. A party on the ship or a night in New York City?? 😉 Annie
  17. An Update: Success. I have just received an email from Rccl confirming all is good. Interestingly the reply came from an email address not listed anywhere and I think is relevant to customers who booked via a consortium of agencies. Freedom@rccl.com Many thanks for your support and suggestions. Annie
  18. I don't do Fb but thanks for the suggestion. Annie
  19. Thanks. The situation WILL be resolved in my favour. Annie
  20. Thanks - if they would just answer the phone it would help 😉 Annie
  21. Frustration was the word I used in today's emails. I am just following the advice given on the ABTA website but I can't get anyone to answer the phone or reply to my emails. It is not just those who booked through TC shops that are impacted but I will update if I hear anything. Annie
  22. Thanks. I am not worrying - just annoyed they are not responding to anything. Annie
  23. Mobile packages?? They have my contact telephone numbers - customer service?? sadly missing. Would they ask US customers to telephone them at their expense?? Rant over 🙂 Annie
