They've just offered free cabins to Bluelight card holders too - well a draw, but if you're both holders like we are then there's double the chance!

Rules did state only one entrant per household but not sure how they'll enforce that... 🙂 Fingers crossed to all others taking part

Beep beep..., here comes another one!

 

Marella to sail British cruises on two ships from Southampton and Newcastle for under £450 a person for three nights, all inclusive


We have cruised twice on the old old ships with them , theatre / show lounge entertainment  was one of the best at sea but that is too expensive to me for three nights  especially , I am assuming , for an inside cabin, not many balconies on their ships.

Are you allowed to get off at the ports?

 

Or is it paid excursions only?

 

Unknown, it's not been stated. I imagine because it's domestic that you will be able to explore. The excursions for Liverpool are Beatle themed and there is a Giants Causeway one for Belfast amongst others. Not sure about Greenock and Kirkwall as I am not on a cruise that calls at them.

Having been on anthem, but cant remember. The indoor pool can it be used by under 18s/children?

Yes, just not the Solarium. There are two indoor pools.

Yes, it's the Solarium which has age restrictions.

The ships Marella has left in their fleet are the former Legend and Splendor of the Seas and Celebrity Century and Galaxy.

Thanks for that  but yes I knew too , we had been on Dream and Celebration which is why I said the old old ships 😆.

We had the honour of being on the Legend’s final RCI cruise and met one of the operations managers from TUI at the key handing over ceremony . I have photos of a wonderful send off they gave Legend . They still don’t have a lot of balconies with the current fleet 😊. TUI refused the offer of Vision of the seas because she had not been upgraded like Splendour and Legend when they converted deck 6 OVs into balconies many years ago. I had that info on good authority from one of the HDs at RCI.

They’ve also put some really bizarre onboard suggestions in regards to mask wearing. “Actively eating and drinking” so sitting at the dining table with masks on whilst waiting? I’m not sure they’re going to sell many with that language online

We have a food and wine cruise booked on Anthem around the 12th of September out of Southampton. Two questions: we are Americans. Do you think it will be a "go" for  us?  RCI announced this month that everyone will have to have a covid test 48 to 72 hours before sailing, but we booked a flight and hotel package two days ahead. How can we get a test in London and get the results back in time?

   We are fully vaccinated.

I’m on this cruise as well.  Just curious where you heard that everyone will need a Covid test 48 to 72 hours before sailing? I have not heard or seen this anywhere.  Are you sure it’s not a UK requirement?
