  1. Never book with an agency that demands a fee - there is no reason why they should be asking for one at all.
  2. Unfortunately all Cunard voyages cancelled until at least November I believe........announced a few days ago.
  3. Up to 450 job cuts from 1600 employees across P&O and Cunard head office in Southampton. All those who remain to take pay cut - just seen this on BBC website. So sorry to read this but not really unexpected in the current circumstances.
  4. We have received a full refund for our cruise (and flights booked through Cunard) due to depart 23 March. The monies were sent to our TA and they then sent it on to us via our bank account. The TA has since closed. We were one of the first of the cruises to be cancelled I believe and this was approx at the end of Feb.
  5. If you have an annual policy you are covered for travel within that time frame ie 9/5/19 to 9/2/20 ( ?) or do you mean 9/5/20. You are not covered for travel after it finishes that's why the Insurance Company are telling you you have up to the 9th to have it cancelled as after that you are not covered. Then, you will have to accept a refund or future cruise credit. I am quite willing to be corrected on this, however, but I believe that this is the case.
  6. But your insurance will have expired by the time you are due to travel - the 17th June?
  7. Their insurance may still be available but does it cover coronavirus ? Possibly not.....
  8. Thank you for this Hattie - yes we will check of course but were just wondering how other cruisers were feeling and being advised. We have had a full refund from this year's cancelled cruise plus 25% off a further one .....the fly in the ointment is the insurance.
  9. Apologies if this is covered elsewhere but where do we stand with insurance on a new booking? We would like to cruise later on or next year (this year's cruise has been understandably cancelled) and there is a repeat itinerary October 2020 and October 2021 but we gather that there won't be any cover for coronavirus on a new booking -its a huge risk. Suggestions?
  10. The Churchill has a great restaurant - Locanda Locatelli. It's one of our favourites...... the hotel is only about 5 minutes from Marble Arch tube so convenient for travel. Handy for Oxford Street shopping, Hyde Park and Park Lane.
  11. Also wondering about our call there and also our call at Shanghai early April on QE......
  12. Forgot to say it's best to book in advance for all the places mentioned especially the Town of Ramsgate. Don't worry about the buffet element - it.s all very civilised as people tootle along to the buffet when it suits. It,s no way like a huge long line of customers waiting for ever. Go up as and when you,re ready...... bus 100 from Tower . There's also a Sunday roast at the Chamberlain (Fullers) which is 1 minute from Aldgate tube but they seem to have gone a bit up market since their refurb and I can't see Yorkshire pud on the menu although they do offer roast beef and chicken on Sundays. It's a good excuse to pop in and find out!! JB - I must be a city type !!!😀
  13. There's a Marriott, Radisson Blu and a Hilton and they are all very central and convenient. The Hilton overlooks the Castle -which is worth a tour. Also a very interesting museum. You can walk to Cardiff Bay where there is lots to see and do and if you fancy going further afield take a trip to St Fagan's Folk Museum which is interesting - houses brought from all over Wales and set up as a village. If you're into Golf, perhaps take a trip to the Celtic Manor Hotel and Golf Course where the Ryder Cup was held. Good choice of restaurants in the hotel and around the course(s) and they do a lovely afternoon tea. Further afield, Swansea and the Gower make a lovely day out - more so when the weather is favourable. Penarth is also an attractive little seaside town. Be aware that the weather at the end of November may not be the best however. Cardiff city centre has dozens of bars, pubs and restaurants - you will be spoilt for choice. If there are any Rugby matches scheduled to take place at the Millennium Stadium (especially International ones) make sure you book your hotels sooneer rather than later as prices will rise considerably and the City centre will be extremely busy then.
  14. Excellent Sunday roast at the Town of Ramsgate, Wapping. The 100 bus stops more or less outside the door. Echo the recommendation for the Narrow and Galvin.
  15. The Rookery is handier for the Tower of London, river cruise and Sky Garden( from near the Tower). Bus no. 100 from round the corner or tube to Tower Hill (direct.) Also easy walk to the Millennium Bridge where you can pick up a river boat.
