  1. i know there is nothing else to talk about except Cricket and Football, but going back to cruising and thinking of Winter 2021 i can see the San Juan cruise being every third cruise starting at Barbados on Sunday a day at sea and arriving tuesday , a lovely port of call as the ship docks in the City Centre and Ten minuets your in the town centre, a stroll a round the walls and a little shopping in the town, such a lovely port of call, next day pull into st Thomas a little similar to St kItts loads of shops on the Quay, i reckon next port would be St Martin we all love this port of call. and next i would say Antigua catch a Cab strait around to your favourite Beach, next i think it could be ST lucia and then pull into Barbados, How sad can i get.
  2. Done both Islands with another cruise line this year, the last cruise out of Barbados St Thomas and Puerto Rico both lovely Islands Puerto Rico would do again cobbled streets and very spanish.
  3. Thank,s Colbrit for early information, i did notice Dream was with Discovery on the St,martin cruise schedule any news.
  4. Hi have been on Discovery twice but never explored deck three, looking at deck plans you have the break out escape rooms and two Pure portrait studios, as P.C said you may go and have your photos taken i really dont know. the only thing of any help if you can afford a Balcony go for deck six port side because sailing into New York you will sail past the statue of liberty and dock into Manhattan, and sailing out you have the City to your left and sitting on your balcony sipping your Gin and tonic and watching the world go by.
  5. You hit the nail right on the head as regards the Britannia, every ship has a pig and whistle and after having a pint or two and a few fags the Bandsmen had to put there hammocks up in a smoky bar when he retired he died of Pulmonary fibrosis hardening of the lungs ,he did enjoy life on the ship because he loved his music, each musician had to play two or three instruments as the Queen loved her dance band music ,rock and when a shore of course marching as you know the best in the world,but it made him proud when they had shore leave and on his epaulettes they had ROYAL YACHT BRITANNIA .
  6. Sorry pal was in M.N in the Sixtys, served most of Cunard. Union Castle and Royal mail, my brother was a Musician in the Marines served H.M.R.Y. for fourteen years done Gib and Malta many times. how about you.
  7. For one moment i thought you going to talk about the (G U T) in Malta say no more.
  8. Done the last cruise on Fascination out of Barbados March 6th ideal size for any ship cruising the Caribbean sorry to see her go.
  9. Hi P.J we are going to do the same closer to the time, ours is June 2021 in the U.S so do a land based from our local Airport .
  10. From TUI chief executive it was suggested that that a sale of tui Marella cruise line was a possibility , what does any one think of that, and who would by a fleet of older ships with most of there home ports in other countries.
  11. Hi L.C have been on the Discovery, Explorer, and Dream and found the Marella Discovery is to my liking, it was the first of the Vision class ships to come across to Tui after being with Royal Caribbean for many years and well looked after, it has a lovely atrium, a Mezzanine restaurant one being Italian a running track and many bar,s and loads of room on the sun deck.
  12. You could be right jack ,its only Anthem booked in for 2021.
  13. Morning all had a general Email from Marella that they will sail with fewer guests on board, and maybe a one way system, also staff will serve you at the buffet and bars will be table service only, also you may be asked to wear a mask both on board and in port what do you all think.
  14. Looking at St Martin cruise schedule for 21/22 Discovery and Dream both in the Caribbean, looks like there hanging on to Dream, but as you see four ship being scrapped at this very moment are a lot younger.
  15. So we could have Indy and Anthem home based So,ton, at this present time a new Cruise Terminal is being built giving us five large berths.
