  1. Having studied for 2 years to gain my Nebosh (HSE )certificate, im pretty sure this is what is meant but has been lost in translation
  2. I think what is being referred to in the statement is the cruiselines Guarantee that it will do all it can to reduce possible hazards involved and try to reduce the risks for those that cruise. By having passengers only using ships excursions they have eliminated the risks of people going off by themselves and mixing with whoever. By having all crew wear masks and gloves they are reducing the risk of transmitting any potential virus. So the cruiseline by taking such actions is Guaranteeing that it is doing all it can to reduce the risks, its all about ticking the correct boxes a
  3. R Rate is what it was in April so they have came up with new rules, schools and workplaces are still open however we CANNOT visit other houses, can only meet 1 other household at a time outside with a maximum of 6 people. If this does not stop the trend then other more severe measures may be introduced, this includes a complete lockdown as has been recommended by scientists for 1 month possibly over xmas and new year. Bloody idiots wont listen to whats being said and either go out partying or protesting etc ruining it for those that stick to the rules
  4. Great news Hopefully our 6 month lockdown that was announced last night in the UK is not extented any further and we are able to get away somewhere other than the local supermarket
  5. Given the fact they booked through RC UK and T&CS clearly state that issues are dealt with in UK under UK Law this should not even be looked at by US Courts, simply because when this family booked cruise they agreed to all the T&Cs! T&CS are there to protect everyone! We enter a contract of agreement knowing this and no court should overrule this as it will open up a precedent that will cause more harm than good
  6. Pizza and a beer ( No Corona from now on lol )
  7. The Danube is the river cruise i would love to do
  8. Bloody hard to fly anywhere as they keep removing then re-adding countries to the red list.. Its safe to fly to spain so people book a vacation, then 2 weeks later its a case of " oh sorry spain isnt safe so you cant fly there now and if you are already there then you better get your ass back quickly" I just had to cancel my 25th anniversary vacation to budapest as they have added Hungary to the Red List.
  9. As said its all about the level of service you get and whatever you leave is a bonus so is appreciated
  10. Got to disagree with this, now i am not saying everyone from the US does not tip , there are some who do and do so extremely generously however the majority do not as its a case of when abroad " do as the Romans do " having worked many years ago as a taxi driver i can honestly say that most US customers were seen by taxi drivers hotel staff and restaurants as being tighter than 2 coats of paint because there were no tips. Thing is it should not matter about tips, no one should need to rely on tips just to survive, companies on land and at sea should pay the correct wage and not rely o

  12. Being Scottish i tried to work out how many drinks i could have had in the time it took to create the spreadsheet
  13. Greenock ???? The only good thing about Greenock is the road heading out of it
  14. While a ship sailing out of Leith would be nice it really doesnt matter to me where Oasis, Freedom, Anthem etc are based, the most important thing for 2022 is that they are at Sea with passengers onboard
  15. Andrews also announced that residents will only be allowed to leave their homes for one hour of exercise each day. Outside of Melbourne's metro area, Victoria will be placed under stage three restrictions starting at midnight on Wednesday. That will mean cafes, bars and restaurants must close and all schools will return to online learning. -------- What do our US forum members think about such measures? It would curb the spread for sure. Not from US but can say now it would not work in the US for 1 simple reason. The Constitution
