  1. Apart from famous people like Tom Jones does anyone on here actually know anyone that has had the vaccine? I don’t know of anyone around here or on our local Facebook pages
  2. I know this has been discussed before but just a quick reminder to everyone if you had extra months added to your passport when you renewed it, they will no longer count for journeys to Schengen Countries. Here is a link to the Government Passport Website to check. https://www.gov.uk/check-a-passport-travel-europe-1-january-2021?utm_campaign=transition_p2&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=seg&utm_content=__act77&gclid=CKLJ1dKM-O0CFQR7GwodFtMDQw So my passport is saying it runs out in June 2022 but because I renewed it in September 2011 and had the extra months added it now runs out in September 2021. As you have to have at least 6 months before you travel I need to renew this March. ( fingers crossed for our cruise later this year, roll on the vaccines 💉😷 )

    I will post this in the P & O forum as well. if anyone had extra months added to their passport previously they will now not be counted. Here is a checker from the Passport Office site https://www.gov.uk/check-a-passport-travel-europe-1-january-2021?utm_campaign=transition_p2&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=seg&utm_content=__act77&gclid=CKLJ1dKM-O0CFQR7GwodFtMDQw
  4. Thanks, yes, I know it said the names but as I said I watched and deleted before I read this thread. From reading other comments I think I know who it was now. Really looking forward to being able to cruise soon.
  5. It was interesting I thought, glad to know the conclusion was the industry won’t be going bust. I watched it and deleted it before reading this thread, so which one was Sharon? I couldn’t work out where the photographer and his wife were being filmed, so glad at the end it showed they were on a narrow boat because I could see the port hole and was thinking it was a funny cruise ship cabin.
  6. My daughters and families are staying away to keep us safe. It won’t be long before we get to see them again.
  7. Also for me it would be can I go and see my Children and Grandchildren without them worrying they might give us the virus. We have only seen them from a distance or on video link since lockdown.
  8. Well the Government has just ordered more of the Moderna vaccine so doesn’t seem like bias to me. But surely if a country has developed a vaccine they would rather use their own, it makes sense to me. Plus the Oxford vaccine is easier to store and each dose cost a lost less, makes sense to me.
  9. Well aren’t you the lucky one. You sound just like Donald Trump, I’ve had it no problem aren’t I the Superman. Which stopped people (people who believed him) in the US social distancing and therefore more infections, perfectly healthy people who do all the things you do have had the disease and died, no one knows who is going to get it and how bad. Now for some good news, watching BBC News last night, a Vaccine company in India took a punt and have been manufacturing the Oxford Vaccine just waiting for the go ahead to start vaccinating. The vaccine is rolling off the production line already and they will be producing 100 million doses a month, enough for India , Asia and the rest of the third world. This surely means our lovely crew on the ships might be working sooner than we expected.
  10. We had this an e mail last week from Princess which as I said we weren’t sure if it was a scam, but other people confirmed okay. It said on sale for Elite from 1st December. Here is the link if it works http://static.cdn.responsys.net/i2/responsysimages/content/princessuk/2022Europe.pdf?cid=brand_email_info_internal_191120-europelaunchhighlights-elites_brand&mi_u=8571196067 It was the post from an ordinary person on Facebook that disappeared not the link that is still there. I assume the Facebook post was deleted because as usual people were arguing with each other on the thread.So nothing to do with an agency taking it down
  11. No it can’t be that as the P & O ones for the same period have been on sale for a few weeks already , and a couple of other lines. Cunard also I think
  12. Again though why do people in the US get to book on 25th November yet in the UK even the Elites can’t book until the 1st December?
  13. In the UK it is 1st December for Elite, goodness knows why other Countries get first choice
  14. As good as this offer is it seems grossly unfair that it is just workers in the US. Do Princess value the Medical workers in the UK, Canada. Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere in the World less then?
  15. Actually I have found P & O are better with the Diabetic Menu, but am still more than happy with Princess.
  16. Thanks and no you can’t get it in the UK. Seems a tad unfair to any NHS workers here.
  17. Is there a link to the form please so I can see if it applies to any country other than the US?
  18. So if you don’t live in The US you don’t get it presumably.
  19. I am diabetic and I am always given the menu the night before to pick for the next night. We also go Anytime Dining and have never had a problem. The Guy giving out the menus has always remembered me and anyone else we have seen getting special menus from after the first night. Also when you are given your table it must show up on the computers somewhere as the waiters seem to know, even if you haven’t had them before, and only give my husband a menu and even tell me what I am having. We normally stick to the same anytime dining room but have used another one once, they just had to look it up and no problem.
  20. Thanks. I was waiting for the new itineraries to come out and had heard it would be November so when the e-mail arrived I wasn’t worried, even though my husband said make sure it’s not a scam. So I clicked into it and did notice a few errors in the list so then thought oh perhaps I shouldn’t have gone into it. I was going to post the same link when someone asked for it on Social Media but then what with the errors and I noticed lots of people on there were saying oh we have already booked, which is odd because booking doesn’t open till 1st December so either 1) Some Countries get first dibs on booking . Noticed above also someone saying November 25th. In which case surely that isn’t fair on the UK or 2) the people saying they have already booked are talking about early 2022 and not the summer. Still doesn’t explain the November 25th comment above.
  21. We had an e mail about 2022 Europe cruises. It gave a link to cruises and dates but didn’t give any prices. We weren’t sure if it was a scam or not. It said exclusive window for Elite on December 1st at 2 pm (UK time) but not much good if we don’t know prices of what we are going for. Editing, yes the website above is the same. Is that a genuine Princess website?
  22. My Neighbours Daughter cannot have the Flu Vaccine as she has an egg allergy because of the ovalbumin content. So I assume there will probably be a small minority of people who have an allergy to any vaccine.
  23. In my comment I was trying to post without being political, especially as it isn’t my own country we are talking about. I expect everyone on here knows what the rest of the world are thinking anyway.
  24. i assume if the virus looks like continuing, which it does, they will adjust the guidelines in accordance with that as they seem to be taking this virus seriously. Better to be safe than sorry.
  25. I seem to recall Trump saying it was nothing to worry about recently as he only had a mild case of it. We have a British Isles cruise in May 2021, I’m not even sure this is going to go ahead now. What is the deal with Princess now, can we move a cruise from May 2021 to say later in the year or 2022 without penalty?
