  1. It's just leaving Edinburgh. 2 and a half hours late. Sincere condolences to family
  2. From a news source in Uk KPMG has so far declined to comment, but indicated only the UK side of the business is affected. Jamie's Italian has collapsed (Photo: Leon Neal/Getty Images) Oliver has 61 franchised outlets in 25 countries. He also has six on Royal Caribbean cruise ships, and a dozen more pencilled in to open later in 2019. A group statement said: "Jamie Oliver Holdings, which operates Jamie Oliver Limited and Jamie Oliver Licensing Limited, as well as the international restaurant franchise business, Jamie’s Italian International Limited, will continue to trade as normal. Fifteen Cornwall, which operates under a franchise, is also unaffected."
  3. Just an observation. With Royal now reducing ships in the Med. Celebrity have increased the load with Edge, Apex, Infinity and Constellation sailing in the Med and Silhouette sailing from Southampton throughout Summer 2020. Certainly a better offering than Royal
  4. Thanks Graham. I couldn't remember the proper story
  5. I wasn't sure when it was to be ready. Maybe move Brilliance from Amsterdam. There was talk Amsterdam had substantially increased there port fees. 1 cruise line has stopped using Ijmuiden because of that. Can't remember what one
  6. Arctic Circle won't get any cheaper. Maybe look at Brilliance from Amsterdam to the Baltics
  7. Welcome. Where are you living. I'm in Edinburgh if you want to pop up for a tour
  8. I think the same. They took Indy away for 1 season and it didn't go down well. Odyssey looks like the only option unless they do more cancelling
  9. Maybe Odyssey will take Indy's place in Southampton
  10. Inflation. I think it was 2 when I was last there, I enjoyed the walk along the marina. With the Cathedral in front of you its a nice setting
  11. Or walk 100 yds and get the public bus foe 1 Euro
  12. In Palma today https://www.webcamtaxi.com/en/spain/balearic-islands/palma-cruise-ships.html
  13. Thanks. I had a look for the report that Aida would have the biggest ship in the world. It was in the Daily Star newspaper in Uk. They have now changed it to 'Carnivals biggest ship'. Lng powered was highlighted. Not sure where it would fit in Europe if it was going to be bigger.
  14. I wonder if Royal will compete for the biggest once the new Aida ship comes out. Over 8000 passengers is big
  15. It was a good qualifying and should bring up a few incidents in the race. Starts at 3pm here and Baku looks like a nice city.
