I can that.

You and John don't need anymore points, but I want to make good use of the double points promotion.

With all the changes that might happen, it might not be worth being loyal.

With so many cancellations my careful planning of itineraries to maximise the double points has gone out of the window! To wait for Anthem to go on sale just to get 8 points didn’t seem worth it in the scheme of things. And the RCI dates don’t suit either. 
Yes I am a little concerned about my non jabbed 💉 cruise MSC mates but with only 1000 on board I’m sure we can maintain distance.

I can beat that! 😁

 

£1,314 total for a Fantastica balcony with premium drinks package and grats. The price did include 30% NHS discount though + 5% Gold membership discount (I’d previously status matched our RC Diamond Plus membership).

 

We’re excited to be sailing on a new ship and actually looking forward to trying out a new (for us) cruiseline.

 

 


Should have mentioned the price of £1,314 is for 7 nights so a really great deal 😁

Has anyone seen anything relating to COVID restrictions that will be in place on these UK only summer cruises? I know that all adults need to be vaccinated and so will the crew, but have not seen anything else.

Yeah, I do hope they release more information before the Cruises go on sale.

What a great deal, thought mine was good! 😁. Did yours include the NHS discount?

The non jabbed ones still have to pass and provide a negative test   before boarding , no get out of jail free card for them 😆
I am wondering if our August cruise will have reduced capacity , be cool if it has .

No NHS discount just our 5% diamond discount.


So was £1,234 for both of you or per person? If it was for 2, that’s a fab price without NHS discount.

Hopefully cheaper than Celebrity

I thought the posted Celebrity prices were quite good, £1449 for 8 nights all inclusive (drinks tips wifi) balcony, seen that sort of price on Anthem without the drinks package.

That isn't bad.

I didn't realise that was all inclusive.

I can't see Anthem being that though, so hopefully a bit cheaper.

Although space is limited, so is cruisers

Anyone have an opinion as to the likelihood of Anthem sailing to European ports September 12? 

I’m wondering the same thing.  Also concerned about quarantine requirements for non-UK residents

Our final payment date is 06/04/21. Hope there is a decision before that date. I’m not interested in sailing around the UK as we’ve done that before.

I dunno what you usually pay for i normally sail out of Southampton on Indi for 14 nights inc drinks package and pay around 1400 quid inside or 1700 balcony. That is somewhere warm too with decent ports!

 

So no. Not a great deal.

£1,234 each.

Ok. We managed to get a great deal of £1,314 total for both of us. 7 nights, Fantastica balcony, premium drinks package and grats. It did include 30% NHS discount though + 5% loyalty discount. Also, 3rd July sailing which I think the base price was cheaper for than the June departures.


Enjoy! 😁

£1,314 was for both of us not per person so I reckon it was a good deal. No, I’m not expecting a heatwave and the ports aren’t exactly riveting but I don’t care 😂😂. We’re going to be on a brand new ship and it’s got to be better than being bored at home!
