  1. On the Jewel just had a late change of itinerary we are not docking in Oman tomorrow. The next 2 stops were scheduled to be Khasab and Muscat and both are cancelled. We were told its because of health concerns due to the close proximity of Oman to Iran. Its a sea day tomorrow now while we wait for an update in the morning.
  2. Hi Julie We are sailing on the Jewel next week so following along. Love the shots of the island wasn’t sure what to expect. We should have been on a 10 day cruise from Hong Kong to Singapore this week but like you a long planned holiday was cancelled. We fly out to Doha on Thursday for a few days with our son who lives there . Im now looking forward to this holiday Thanks to your posts, it's taken a few days for everything to sink in. Happy cruising and thanks for posting.
  3. Really love what they have done. We sailed the Spirit and the Bliss in the same year a couple of years ago and and you can elements of both in the decor. It looks sophisticated and updated.
  4. Called this morning and yes they confirm the cruise fare will be funded and it is exactly as reported here a standard template as if we had cancelled. Should know by now CC has the answers. It is really unprofessional of NCL not to have a letter template to deal with all eventualities or make a new one.
  5. Thanks but I dealt directly with NCL. I’m going to give them a call just to be sure.
  6. Sorry I dont understand the first part of your post I didn’t cancel my cruise they did. BTW Thanks for the reassurance and debshomespun Appreciate you sharing your knowledge.
  7. Ok but it reads like thats all I’m entitled too.
  8. Having received an email yesterday cancelling this cruise with a 100% refund I have just had an email with an invoice for our refund. Its for a fraction of our outlay its just for tax’s , prepaid grats and excursions. It hasn’t included the actual cruise fare tell me this is an Admin error. Today has been the first stress free day I have had for a couple of weeks until this happened!
  9. Reports on social media that the 17 th sailing is cancelled
  10. That is exactly my situation and I couldn’t agree more. I am really fed up with been told you should have Travel insurance. I do it doesn't cover this situation I always have comprehensive travel insurance and I am fully covered if I was to contract Coronavirus but I am not covered if I choose not to go. I wish that my fellow CC’s who keep talking about “cancel for any reason insurance” would understand it is not available to every country maybe not even out of North America . I have 77 sea days with NCL and have never once been offered travel insurance at any point in the booking process or afterwards.
  11. I don’t think they will cancel now if you booked in the UK check this out https://www.independent.co.uk/topic/package-travel-regulations

  13. Having cruised both itineraries its a tough choice. Very different experiences I think I would say the Baltic ports just. Yes St petersburg because there is so much to see ( I’ll never forget the Faberge egg collection or the fountains at Peterhoff) but we also loved Helsinki and had a good time in Stockholm and Copenhagen. There is something gentle and polite about the culture of Scandinavia that as a visitor is very appealing.
  14. Yes it is an interesting article that probably sums up my own thoughts on the situation.
