  1. There were yes. Bring your own milk jiggers and tea bags though, unless you like powdered milk?
  2. First family holiday in two years, wear what you like and enjoy.
  3. Have a look here: https://www.passportwaitingtime.co.uk UK renewals are fairly quick at the moment.
  4. Still waiting for my results from the 5th July! Good job the backup system worked well, enjoy the cruise we had an amazing time.
  5. I wasn’t able to print them at all but the staff at the port had loads of spares, baggage arrived promptly.
  6. Just cruising back into Southampton, apologies for not answering some of the questions but I never buy onboard internet, it’s my time to be detached. Firstly, my test result never came back even though my wife’s did, tests taken at the same time, Eurofins are off my list now permanently. Secondly, drinks package onboard price I have no idea, we sucked up the £80 per person per day and most days broke even by 2pm. Most importantly, it was fabulous, a great trip with great shows and a great atmosphere.
  7. Onboard now, took about an hour including the extra test etc. And relax.
  8. So quite well-organised, lateral flow test, allowed to pass security then into a waiting area for results to come through.
  9. Came to the port 90 minutes before scheduled time, they have a testing facility here for those waiting results.
  10. Easy to say not to worry, just about to have a brew, ships ready, we are ready, it would appear the testing company aren’t!
  11. Two things, firstly, quarantine for fully vaccinated and closing a bar down are political decisions. Secondly, vaccine prevents illness, fabulous, love it, isn’t that the point?
  12. Same same, tests 1030 yesterday, show on the app as waiting for results. Consoling myself with a bottle of kiwi sauv blanc in the Holiday Inn whilst looking at the ship!!
  13. Anxiously waiting for the test result, less than 24 hours to boarding.
  14. It's back? My post wasn't showing for me earlier.

  16. Same boat as you so to speak! Tests tomorrow, travel down Tuesday, board Wednesday, they've got 51 hours!
  17. It was one of my worries too, I was always planning to turn up anyway and why I used the approved provider.
  18. Indeed, as long as cruise cover is included and you aren’t travelling against FCDO advice you should be fine.
  19. Do you need special travel insurance? As long as you are not travelling against FCDO which you aren’t then surely any insurance is OK?
  20. I downloaded the TrustOne app, it’s a bit naff. It does show our appointment but in Singapore for some reason? It also mentions Royal Caribbean so I’m fairly certain the info will be linked back. Just make sure you take the QR code to the appointment. See you next week hopefully.
