  1. ARRRGGHHH!!!!!!!!!!! You mean not if you BOOK in the UK. Many live in the UK but book in the US when the deals are favourable to do so.
  2. They'll always be exceptions to every rule. But I'm seeing significant rises already for the cruises we're following for 2021. No one knows what will happen but I still think the cruise industry will rebound in time. Interest seems as high as ever for future cruises anyway.
  3. For a short period they hit $45 yesterday. They're so volatile at the minute I've been trading in and out when bored at home. When you say there is "absolutely NO revenues", you do realise they are still taking future bookings right? You do also realise that the current situation is factored into the price right now, hence them no longer being $135 per share.
  4. Agree 100%. We have cruises in May 2021 Alaska, (Certain this will happen), November 2020 Asia (Hopeful this will sail) and october 2020, Europe (A little hopeful). With all the turmoil I've not bothered looking for additional cruises and have basically written off 2020 and 2021 as far as additional cruises are concerned as I expect sailings next year will not be good value. So land trips it will be until all of this has well and truly settled down.
  5. Yes please! I'm getting annoyed with all the rubbish written on social media. People seem to believe anything they read on facebook these days! To everyone wanting to do an Alaskan cruise (like me) I'd strongly suggest you look at 2021. Demand will be higher than ever due to the 2020 season being affected. Book now before prices rocket! Remember not only will demand be higher than normal but the cruise lines will have millions in losses they will want to try and recoup.
  6. I wondered if some of the doomsdayers were deliberately trying to deramp the stock price waiting to jump in. I guess if we see them ramping the sock in the future we'll know!
  7. Been in and out all day doing that with NCL, CLL and RCL as we've seen massive volatility. RCL announced delays until mid march with their sailings and we see another jump, fall back and now another jump. And that's just today. If you wait you're missing lots of opportunities.
  8. RCL over $41 right now. I bought stock in all three of the big boys as a medium to long term hold. Just hoping I can actually take advantage of the shareholder OBC at some point. Not sure if they'll all continue with it in its current form at least. Norgegian are recovering well at the minute too.
  9. Good question. I've always wanted to see X offer more longer cruises of maybe 30 days or so but they are not targeting this market. I think HAL have the best choice of itineraries amongst the mainstream lines but they target an older demographic who have the opportunity to enjoy longer voyages. I know you can book B2B2B2B2B's etc but it's not quite the same thing to me. Azamara may be worth a look at also from reading your post.
  10. I've not read other replies but I would. Assuming the following :- You're happy with the itinerary, room and price available to you (Stating the obvious I know). That you're comfortable with the fact that the cruise may have its itinerary changed or cancelled. You have a plan B and suitable insurance in place to deal with any disappointment you experience.
  11. Even ISIS are advising their members to avoid Europe! https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/isis-issues-coronavirus-travel-advice-terrorists-should-avoid-europe-5m89dvjjw?fbclid=IwAR1awLcABT01NTZKNn6rNxviWSmKGHXitjU4SuTUsFHXxBdqkGqzIpk7yEU

  13. Not sure if this has been posted before. But I just found this in my inbox... Just over a week ago we announced our new Cruise with Confidence policy to help reassure guests who preferred to reschedule their holiday. At the time, I had no idea what the next few days would bring. Within a week, we suspended cruising in US ports from March 14th through April 10th and less than 24 hours after that we suspended all cruises globally. Schools are closing, sports seasons are cancelled, concerts and music festivals postponed. The situation is changing rapidly, to say the least. I am truly sorry for the impact this has had on your holidays at such short notice. I know this is very disappointing for all of you and it’s disappointing for me too. But sometimes things happen that are outside of our control. And at Celebrity Cruises, we always have and always will act in the best interest of our guests, crew and employees.

  14. Check the two blue stocks in a sea of red on a difficult day for the stock markets. Interesting for sure.
