  1. In all honesty my only surprise about this is that cruise lines have not announced similar much earlier. They have a duty of care to protect their staff and passengers so really should be aiming to ensure all onboard are vaccinated. Though getting younger people from Asia were most of their workforce comes from vaccinated might be a challenge.
  2. Just a quick question. I've booked a Princess cruise for our extended family and a couple of them have a query. I strongly suspect the answer to be a no but thought I'd ask anyway. Do you have tea and coffee making facilities in your cabin onboard on Princess ships sailing from the UK? I ask as I know Celebrity X do on their sailings from Southampton but not from other ports. I know you can order tea and coffee from room service and get them in cafes onboard etc. :)
  3. You do know that before Covid arrived we needed health care workers to treat other conditions right? I'll let you do the rest of the maths.....
  4. For those in the US are you seeing much info of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine? It barely mentioned here in the UK. No ones really reported that it was being administered before the UK started administering the Pfizer vaccine. It all seems very political to me.
  5. I could reply in detail. But I'll simply ask, do we trust the logic of health authorities around the globe who have chosen to vaccinate their front line staff? Or do we choose the word of an armchair expert posting on a cruise forum on the internet who apparently knows better?
  6. This topic is covered in depth by the financial press. You'd be best reading articles by financial analysts rather than asking on here to be brutally honest. But for what it's worth, we have shares in all three of the big companies and don't plan on selling just yet. I monitor the situation regularly though!
  7. Haig scotch and Jack Daniels products being described as premium whiskies... Good grief!
  8. I haven't read the whole thread but this is my opinion. Prices will remain very high for quite some time. We've had a large number of cancellations and so there will be huge demand as people are desperate to go on holiday. Then you need to factor in lift and shift re-bookings and you'll see that sailings for the next 18 months to two years will have higher than normal demand. As vaccination programs roll out the number of Covid cases will reduce. As a result travel restrictions will be relaxed. This will give people more confidence to book holidays and demand will increase further so i
  9. Thanks all for the replies. We're planning on a large extended family cruise featuring several families. Every individual has sailed before, some many times. But as you can imagine trying to take everyone's favoured line, ship, itinerary, duration and dates can be a challenge. The one sailing that ticked more boxes than any other for the whole group is a Star Princess Baltic cruise sailing out of Southampton in July 2022. I've not really considered Princess before but am aware many state that this line is the closest match to Celebrity there is. As you can understand the cruise is ulti

  11. I did that a few hours ago. But only have one reply so far. I've posted here too as the Celebrity board is much livelier. :)
  12. I've never really considered Princess much to be honest. I've discussed them onboard X ships with fellow passengers and found that there's a rough 50% split of who prefers which line. Sky Princess looks quite nice on the Youtube videos I've watched but then again it is very new. It certainly looks a lot nicer than the very tired M class ships I've sailed on previously. A comparable cruise itinerary on Silhouette is around £2100 per person more than a Princess mini suite when you add internet, beverage pack and gratuities to a Princess sailing. The Celebrity equivalent itineraries are a
  13. Interesting as I've sailed Celebrity many times. We're E+ and I've always found the entertainment to be dreadful. But that's not what we sail for so it doesn't matter. What makes Princess so bad?
