  1. Yes, I am one of those that are expecting to cancel my 2021 bookings, but not until the balance is due. I think the main reason people are finding prices for next year so high is that as well as those who booked before all this blew up, many who had booked for this year have moved their bookings forward to next year, meaning demand is exceptionally high for 2021. I’ve only been on one cruise so far to see if I would like it, and have currently got five booked between June 2020 and February 2022. As things stand I’m not expecting to go ahead with any cruise until I am totally happy that it is safe, which won’t be until I, and most of the rest of the population, have been vaccinated, and I have seen a few months worth of cruising taking place without incident.
  2. Nobody knows yet, but that timescale fits with what I’m planning for.
  3. Couldn’t agree more, another vote for Tesco beans here... now if only I could get a delivery slot 🤔
  4. Avril, how heartbreaking. My thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time. Remember if you need to talk we’re all here for you. Stay safe. Les.
  5. Personally I don’t think it’s wise to commit to anything until we see how this thing is going to play out.
  6. I agree, and in fact I can see the cruise industry starting cautiously, whenever the time comes, with cruises to nowhere, which would be the safest way to begin.
  7. You are quite correct. I posted that as the main reason I won’t be cruising for a while yesterday on another thread. The way I see it is once a vaccine is widely available and the majority of the population have been protected this will cease to be an issue, and then it will be safe to start cruising again, not before.
  8. I agree. The thing that will stop me is the insurance situation. Until this virus is totally under control and a reliable vaccine is available my view is that it would be stupid for me to cruise as insurance companies won’t cover Covid 19 related claims.
  9. I think anybody contemplating going on a cruise needs to be fully aware of the insurance situation. What would happen if you suffered a coved 19 related issue? Effectively you wouldn’t have insurance and this could end up being VERY expensive.
  10. Sounds like you’re quids in there Dave 😂 👍
  11. That doesn’t sound good. What is your source for that information?
