  1. I'm not a smoker but understand your feelings but you should know that smoking indoors is banned in many European countries so expect sailings to follow suit.
  2. I thought that wonder had a whole section of the ship dedicated to suites?
  3. Thanks my son is at school the following week in October so we can't afford to be stuck in a foreign country. We are all vaccinated so I'd rather mask up and fly home that be in quarantine somewhere. Just looked again and we can now book connecting cabins it's very strange every day for the same booking multiple options appear and disappear Saturday morning all were sold out now there are balconies on multiple decks. Just wish they would allow 3 to a cabin as it's €404 for guarantee balcony which rises to €909 to choose your own...
  4. Great news thanks Mike. From reading this I will still have to take a antigen test even though I'm fully vaccinated and have to take a test on arrival in the UK. This would be a problem as I would be staying in a hotel the night before sailing. I wonder if I can get the test delivered to the hotel?
  5. Thanks for these updates. To be honest I'm not surprised about numbers since they don't allow you to book 3 to a cabin. We want to go with our 16 year old son in October we have tried ringing and they will absolutely NOT allow 3 in a cabin and seem unwilling (???) to book connecting cabins when we phone despite availability on the website. What happens if you test positive getting off the ship? Are you stuck in Barcelona for a week?
  6. I thought it would end in September but I cannot find any information about it. Looks like they are still only doing UK cruises for UK residents for the rest of 2021 ?
  7. This protocol must be a resident of the United Kingdom (including the Channel Islands & Isle of Man). Just plain sucks ?
  8. Soo cool pity it's Cyprus it's a hard place in Europe to get to ? Flights from Belgium with Ryanair are already over €400 each.
  9. Still showing vaccine requirement for cruises out of Cyprus for me. I presume Barcelona will be the same.
  10. I'm so enjoying Matt being speechless. Amazing if I was watching live I would definitely have chipped in the odd 5 bucks lol
  11. This is a great resume about vaccinations and sailings but did you know in Europe and Asia cruise lines have been sailing with unvaccinated guests for many months now? Royal Caribbean has now passed more than 100 000 passengers in its cruises from Singapore and MSC and TUI have been sailing from Europe for many months with only one or two family break outs which were swiftly contained. RC is sailing from Cyprus this summer on Jewel and kids are allowed on already with a negative PCR test. I fully expect there to be the usual temp checks testing and social distancing rules in place and I don't see any problems arising on their sailings. I think the American cruise industry is doing too much hand wringing about all of this and hope this bill to limit the CDC in cruise ship protocols works as they really have went far beyond their remit as far as cruising is concerned.
  12. That never bothers me as I always something to top it up ? Do you think that the rest of European summer cruises will be cancelled? MSC is the only major cruise line in the med at the moment and they are cleaning up most balconies on their ships are gone and suites are gone as well. I'm surprised that Royal have Harmony of the Seas still sitting idling while Anthem is already announced.
  13. I will be cruising this summer from many European locations. Belgium will have enough vaccines to fully vaccinate 50% of the adult population by end June and that is only taking into account 1 out of 4 suppliers who can commit to supply. AZ, J&J and Moderna have not yet given their supply details yet so expect this number to rise perhaps even up to 60% fully vaccinated by end June in time for summer season. I think the Cruise companies might regret moving their ships to cold and wet summer cruises in the UK. Not even thinking of two other vaccines about to announce vaccines in Q2, Novavax and Curavax. the future looks bright for European Cruises this summer with no CDC to worry about. People might be best hanging fire on UK British Isles cruises to see what's out there in the next couple of months. Like I have said before if that is Europe wide then we are talking about potentially 200 million fully vaccinated clients in the EU come July. Cruise lines would be very foolish not to want to tap into that market.
