    I really wish they’d give the option to keep your booking if your cruise gets cancelled and the ship is relaunched on different itinerary. I can understand cancelling interior and ocean view, but if you have balcony or suite, I think you should have the option of keeping it.

    I reckon they are booking to full capacity.  If they need to reduce numbers, so far they cancel the entire sailings and "re-debut" the ship.  This is what just happened for Anthem of the Seas out of Southampton,  although they also changed the itineraries as well.

    I think it's not to bad, compare it to a week on Anthem in October, a balcony is £1319. The Celebrity price includes drinks, wi-fi and gratuity. RC is always expensive out of Southampton.

    I was surprised at Celebrity's pricing this morning! I expected them to be pricey but £1500 each for a week round UK, ouch!

    With those types of prices I'll be booking a b2b on the 7 nighter on 25th July and the 6 nighter on 1st August...?

    Pricing isn’t officially public yet, only dates and itineraries. Pricing will be confirmed on Wednesday when the sailings are available to book. I know what you mean I am very keen to find out the prices too. According to a few different people Ive spoken to (my travel agent and also a few different people on Facebook) the prices seem to range from £400 to £700 per person for the lowest price room depending on length of cruise. This to me is very reasonable and a lot less than Celebrity’s pricing, Celebrity do have an all inclusive model though so obviously will be more expensive.

    @Brogan thanks for posting these dates, I was looking for them so I could plan ahead.  Not sure where you found them, but did dates for Jewel OTS for Cyprus also get released?  They also go on sale on April 7th...

    You could become @Matt's European blogging intern...then all cruising would become "work related" travel ?

    At this point I'm not making any 2022 GC plans until we get a clearer picture about which ships/sailing will actually go.

    @em.down.the.rabbit.hole Link to MSC's UK offer for health sector workers https://www.msccruises.co.uk/cruise-deals/health-workers
    Looks to me like you would be eligible for that too: "- Healthcare Volunteers (Ambulance, Social services) who offered their support during the Covid-19 emergency"

    I tried to convince @Matt to book Anthem 07/08/2022 with @GregD and I.  We were booked on the Anthem GC for this July but when they released the Europe itineraries before Christmas, and I saw a very similar itinerary in 2022 with a lower rate, I booked it.
    Unofficial GC? lol

    As of 8am (GMT) Royal have cancelled Anthem of the Seas itineraries and will "re-debut" uk itineraries.
    BIG PROBLEM - they haven't specified which sailings are impacted, on the email!!!!
    I'm presuming both my June and July sailings are gone bit I would have expected more than one email?  Normally when they send itinerary update emails I get one per passenger as well....so far just one email!

    Definitely worth registering for it then. Good luck!
    MSC have been doing something similar on their cruises here in Europe, offering 2nd passenger free for healthcare people, so that's something else to watch out for, in case they do the same with their UK sailings.
