  1. If you're including new cancellations - Cruise 14th October 2020 Cancelled by Seabourn 10th August 2020 (four days before final payment date, fortunately!) Refund of deposit requested from Seabourn UK 12th August 2020
  2. I don't think retirement is the current plan. They have announced that all bookings for the full 2021 world cruise will be automatically transferred to the world cruise in 2022. "For guests booked on the full 2021 World Cruise on Seabourn Sojourn (January 3- May 24, 2021) In a review of our options and in light of the current world travel situation, our next World Cruise will take place in 2022 on board Seabourn Sojourn. The 145-day World Cruise: Extraordinary Horizons will depart from Los Angeles, California, on January 11, 2022. To help you fulfill this incredible experience, your 2021 World Cruise booking will automatically be transferred to the 2022 World Cruise in the same suite at the same rate as your current booking, and they will receive the additional five cruise days at no extra charge. Any confirmed early booking amenities will be automatically transferred to the new booking. Although the itinerary is still being finalized as ports are confirmed and is subject to change, we’re confident the 2022 World Cruise will be just as exciting."
  3. This page also confirms that there is currently no change for Odyssey or Quest.
  4. It's now on Seabourn's website as well here.
  5. Thanks. I also found this. And here is the official newswire report.
  6. Hi What is your source, please? I can't see it on Seabourn's website.
  7. Tweet. CLIA That should mean the cancellation of our Sojourn cruise on 14 October LA to Miami. It's been obvious for some time to everyone except Seabourn that it could not go ahead. California - Mexico - Florida (amongst others) - really? Currently considering alternatives.
  8. This is what really depresses me. Maybe I've watched too many disaster movies in previous years. In most of those where the world is threatened by a worldwide catastrophe, meteors, floods or whatever, governments throughout the world soon realise they have to work together and co-operate to meet the crisis. I should have realised they are fantasy movies. Now we hear claims, true or not doesn't matter, that Russia and China are trying to hack and steal and even interfere with vaccine development in the West and the US president decides to buy up the entire stock of remdesivir for at least the next three months so that no other country can have access to it. As the UN Secretary General keeps trying to remind us - We are all in this together! What kind of a world are we living in? Latest figures say nearly 15 million cases worldwide and over 600,000 dead with potentially millions to be at risk of starvation. What on earth are we doing? Sorry, I don't want to upset or depress anyone and probably this isn't the place for such a rant but I feel rather strongly about this.
  9. Side note: The Book with Confidence FAQs now include some answers that I would have thought would have only been available to agents. I don't think they were there before and the answers are clearly addressed towards agents.
  10. Just noticed the Book with Confidence policy has been updated from applying to cruises booked by 31 July to those booked by 30 September. Not sure when it happened but it must have been this week as I last looked last weekend. Book with Confidence
  11. True, but they are still not cancelling cruises that they know cannot go ahead in order to avoid having to issue refunds, rather than FCCs. When the no sail order is extended, they will have no choice. Only 8 days of the current order left. And at the risk of being political, I'm not sure that the CDC is under as much pressure at the moment as Anthony Fauci who should be commended for standing up to the 'bizarre' attacks.
  12. Isn't it about time the CDC got round to extending the 'no-sail' order. Or do they really suggest cruising will be safe from July 24?
  13. And yet Seabourn has still not cancelled the October Sojourn cruise from LA to Miami, in two of the worst affected states for the virus, via Mexico, one of the worst affect countries!
  14. I really wouldn't get too sanguine about antibodies tests. They offer no real assurance about any protection against the virus. This is from the CDC website. A positive test result shows you might have antibodies from an infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. However, there is a chance a positive result means that you have antibodies from an infection with a virus from the same family of viruses (called coronaviruses), such as the one that causes the common cold. Having antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 might provide protection from getting infected with the virus again. If it does, we do not know how much protection the antibodies might provide or how long this protection might last. The italics are mine.
