The UK has just given the go ahead for UK domestic cruises from 17th May, come on RC, seize the opportunity

Sorry its not going to happen that early! 

 

Article states that the earliest it can happen is May 17th which is the date boris said he hoped to have things go to plan it could happen, hopefully it does as we need something to look forward to but given our history of messing things up and going backwards im not that optimistic

Sorry but more false news and misleading headline which builds up peoples hopes when in reality its not going to happen.

 

Article states that the earliest it can happen is May 17th which is the date boris said he hoped to have things open, it could happen, hopefully it does because we need something to look forward to

I think they mean that domestic cruising is assigned to that part of the road map out of lockdown ... the part that is currently slated as 17th May...ie if they move the 17th May date out, then everything slated to reopen at that time moves out to a new date.  I take it as a positive that cruising (albeit domestic) has been specified and added to the road map out of lockdown.

Scroll through this article (post at 3.47pm most interesting) .... International cruising from UK expected later on this summer... not just domestic cruising.

Hope they've discussed this with Nicola before releasing it to the press! 

Its ok saying we are going to cruise around the UK but its 4 separate countries with their own governments and their own covid rules.

If Nicola doesnt want it then it wont happen.

Alas there's but 1 uk government... its a shame the 4 individual states aren't aligned at the moment, as its so confusing. 

Wonder which governing body has control of waters and borders?  Individual states have responsibility for health etc.. but no idea about security, borders, and water‽

Borders are reserved so it's the UK government in Westminster. Some powers are devolved to the governments in Scotland, NI, Wales however those governments have no say on what goes on outside their country whereas the UK government's reserved powers are UK wide.

Going by previous lockdown measures put in place by scottish government cross border movement was banned. 

Even when boris came up to visit nicola tried to stop it

Yet nicola was able to quarantine anyone and everyone from anywhere in the world despite uk government saying it was only 33 countries? 

Which is how the Brazilian strain entered Scotland. 

4 offshore workers flying from brazil to Scotland knew they would have to quarantine in a hotel for 10 days so they flew to paris as france isnt on englands list from there they flew to london then up to Scotland avoiding the need to quarantine.

Had to reread this to see if i had missed something but its not on this link...other reports clearly state these cruises do not dock anywhere,  they are just sailing about the coast of Britain trying to keep warm and dry lol

Ray, that seems to be the case for most of the lines who have announced they will sail from the UK, it's similar to the cruises in Singapore, cruise to nowhere, without the warm Singapore weather

Guess its better than visiting Greenock lol 

Im looking at flying to Lisbon for a few days there then jump on an MSC ship for a 2 night cruise to Barcelona, then spend a few nights there.
