  1. If anyone thinks a vaccine is going to be a quick cure, have a read http://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-disease-not-likely-to-be-eradicated-sage-scientist-says-12110135
  2. The more I see of Edge class, the more I dislike the look.
  3. Apex scheduled to depart for lay up at Coco Cay 17.00 tomorrow 21 October.
  4. Presumably in port for crew changes, provisioning then back to lay up for a few months.
  5. Quite prepared by to be dismissed as a wing nut but my prediction is that vaccines will have very limited effect, we will have to learn to live with the virus and that a new normal will emerge by 2026
  6. There are no dry docks in Aliaga, they are driven onto the beach and dismantled there.
  7. Not interested in getting into a lift and switch or future cruise credit position. As the pandemic is ongoing, worsening if anything and stories emerging of limited vaccinations even when available we are not even thinking about cruising until this is all over (if ever)
  8. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-54371559 appears to confirm that not a lot will change in 2021
  9. Apex is due to arrive at Ponta Delgada at 9.00am local time on 3 October.
  10. As it's currently impossible to plan anything with any certainty and having no desire to fly and risk quarantine on return all we are doing are short staycation trips booked at short notice as conditions allow. One next week cancelled due to local travel restrictions. Will miss getting away to winter sun!
  11. Having read this article and the reference to restrictions on MS6 I doubt if many cruisers would be attracted to giving it a go! https://www.spiegel.de/international/business/an-sos-in-the-corona-crisis-cruise-industry-battles-for-survival-in-pandemic-a-e7743e72-998c-4502-8ad5-45c66f3b2b61?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter&fbclid=IwAR3T-SrSYWMYilWeGas5GIvDMiPXQQT-YrmmTzQ3jKFeRPGd8AnIyz3v8Kc#ref=rss
  12. Only if it's an outstanding meal with superb presentation, haven't had that experience on a cruise ship for several years now.
  13. Infinity now heading to Malta, bunkering or something else?
  14. Strange place to send her, known as a port for superyachts but not cruise ships
  15. No link just info I was given but as always hard to verify. I was told she will head to India then on to S Korea. We'll just have to wait and see if it's that or Aliaga.
