  1. We were hoping to do a European river cruise next year, but I think that is now on hold. I mentioned to my wife that we still have a tent in the garage from when the kids were small, and we could take that somewhere. Apparently I will be doing that on my own !
  2. Finally. Royal Clipper cruises cancelled until 3rd October. At least we can move on and get a refund now, - next year not an option as already fully booked. It’s a shame, as we were really looking forward to this, our second Clipper cruise, when we booked it way back in 2018. Not committing to 2022 as I think the whole cruise industry will struggle for a long time now, at least until there is a vaccine for COVID-19.
  3. Royal Clipper cruises all now cancelled until 5th September, so we are just hanging in there. Next update will probably be beginning of August. Part of me wishes they would cancel, then we could look at rebooking for 2021. There again, it could be a great opportunity to see Venice, Rome, Dubrovnik, Kotor etc without all the usual crowds.
  4. To further complicate things, - our return flight from Rome to Manchester, with Jet2, is now cancelled ! Alternative looks like BA via Heathrow. Will have to change car park timings at Manchester also. Hey ho.
  5. Hi everyone. Just paid the final balance for Venice - Rome cruise, leaving 5th September 2020. Must say, I was ( and still am) very doubtful that this cruise will go ahead, but was advised to pay up in full, in order to get a full refund if the cruise is then cancelled. (If I cancel my booking now, I lose the deposit and flight costs). Just wondered if there are others out there hoping to go on this cruise. Not sure if we are actually looking forward to it now. If there are social distancing measures and compulsory masks etc. It will be a very different trip to the one we had hoped for, but
