  1. There a train line right next door to the terminal :L literally get a train from London 1.2 hours and you walk off the train into the cruise terminal
  2. Yes! my place of work Harwich International Port, they were here for over 30 years with many ships including. legend, vision, splendour, jewel and brilliance. the later 2 i saw come in every 2 weeks when they done the Baltic cruises. thats how I got into cruising, and the minute i go into it they stopped home porting here around 2015
  3. I'm staying 2 days before hand and flying back on disembarkation day. I believe we have to have a test onboard the ship so we can get off on day 8
  4. Still cant check in, I'm flying from the UK and it seems a minefield of misinformation. anyone else still sailing ?!
  5. Hi guys I’m booked on this!!! @Matt are you still on this? See you on aboard @BrandonOwen

  10. its cheap to fly from England to Barbados, well around £300 which is cheap.
  11. Where were you waiting? and did you have an event?
  12. My US Travel agent has secured group rates and we are in the process of all booking up. around 20 cabins in total so 40 guests. she's tried to get some information but has been told what I said in the first post that there are only certain times which seem very very restrictive. all I want I a couple of barmen and a DJ in a venue ? :L Do you think it is possible on a sea day then @Matt they have said it can be done but not till after 10:30pm zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
  13. Hmm I'm unsure this is Covid related. it seems royals events team are about as much use as a chocolate fire guard
  14. Thanks for your response! We are planning our wedding completely independently as royal don’t offer this service for European ports. I believe My US travel agent is in contact with the events team as weddings won’t deal with us. useful insight though JL
  15. Hi all im trying to plan my wedding which is on day 6 of the cruise offshore in Italyand long story short I’m wanting to plan an event on day 7 which is a sea day for around 40 people. But it seems royal can’t do any sort of event until 10:30pm we would be paying for their drinks and food etc. We’ve also tried having an event on the ship on day 6 on Allure of the Seas but again they can’t do this until after 10:30 All we require is 2 barmen and a DJ ? has anyone had any experience of events?
  16. Ah me too its a nightmare to plan. me and my partner have a back up plan in allure of the seas next year. and to be honest i think we are moving it to that date in 2022 as there are too many variables this year which could go wrong! however if it sails in september this year i will still be going!
  17. The Uk must have an announcement soon .... Anthem lingering out there too
  19. MIAMI/LONDON, March 25, 2021 – This summer, Royal Caribbean International guests can soak up the Mediterranean sun and explore the captivating coastlines of Greece and Cyprus on all-new 7-night cruises departing from Limassol, Cyprus. Starting July 10, Jewel of the Seas will call Cyprus home for the first time and sail to the picturesque shores and ancient ruins in Cyprus, Greece and the Greek Isles through October. Travelers can visit a combination of culture-rich cities and idyllic islands, including Limassol, Athens, Greece and the Greek islands of Rhodes, Crete, Mykonos and Santorini. The new 2021 summer itineraries from Cyprus will open for bookings on April 7. Sailing with vaccinated crew, the cruises – at this time – will be available to adult guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and those under the age of 18 with negative test results. These current health and safety measures, like others, may evolve as they are evaluated on an ongoing basis. “I’m delighted to announce our safe and gradual return to Europe. We know how eager our guests are to enjoy a getaway this summer, and these sailings, which include a mix of fantastic destinations and must-visit islands, make for the perfect getaway,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “Cyprus is a beautiful island, and we are thankful to the Cypriot government for their support and enthusiasm in making these incredible itineraries possible.” Travelers on board Jewel of the Seas can enjoy the perfect balance of culture and relaxation, exploring destinations seeped in history, relaxing in small peaceful coves and sampling delicious local cuisine. Guests can immerse themselves in Greek and Roman history at preserved ancient sites, such as Kourion in Limassol and the Parthenon temple in Athens, then take in the multihued waters and beaches of Mykonos and the waterfront tavernas of Santorini. Savvas Perdios, the Deputy Minister of Tourism for Cyprus, said, “We are delighted that Royal Caribbean will call Limassol its homeport for the first time ever. This has been an ambition of ours for many years, and we are thrilled that, finally, this dream has come to fruition. We have every confidence that Royal Caribbean’s presence in Limassol will be beneficial to Cyprus and, similarly, we are very confident that as a homeport and as a country, Cyprus will live up to the expectations of Royal Caribbean and its guests.” On board Jewel, travelers can cool off in the pools and whirlpools, recharge at the Vitality Spa and Fitness Center and dine at their pick of numerous complimentary and specialty bars and restaurants, including guest-favorites Chops Grille and Izumi. Spanning 13 decks, the ship comes complete with a rock-climbing wall, casino, sports court, nine-hole miniature golf course, an outdoor movie screen and more. The Minister of Tourism of Greece, Mr. Harry Theoharis, adds, “We warmly welcome the announcement of this new itinerary that will give the opportunity to even more visitors to create unique experiences in the Greek destinations this summer. Our history, culture and famous gastronomy, together with our philoxenia, will make memories to last a lifetime.” Guests can rest assured their well-being and that of the crew members and communities visited are Royal Caribbean’s top priorities. Details on the health and safety measures to be implemented will be announced at a later date. The comprehensive, multilayered health and safety measures to come will continue to be led by science and leverage expert guidance from the Healthy Sail Panel, Royal Caribbean Group’s Head of Public Health and Chief Medical Officer, and local government and health authorities. In addition, travelers must meet the travel requirements of their home country and Cyprus. The most up-to-date policies can be found on Cyprus’ tourism website. Royal Caribbean’s new 7-night sailings from Cyprus continue the cruise line’s measured and safe return to cruising the world once again. It follows months of successful cruises in Singapore, with more than 50,000 guests to date who have sailed aboard Quantum of the Seas, as well as the recently announced plans for the highly anticipated Odyssey of the Seas to cruise from Haifa, Israel, and cruises from The Bahamas with Adventure of the Seas and Bermuda with Vision of the Seas.
