  1. We print them, fold and put in these https://www.amazon.co.uk/GreatShield-Luggage-Resistance-Caribbean-Celebrity-4-Pack/dp/B074Q3VXSC/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=CRUISE+LUGGAGE+TAG+HOLDERS&qid=1561195289&s=gateway&sr=8-5
  2. We're reaching the end of a 14 night cruise on Silhouette and the MDR food has been the worst ever. No Wellington or Dianne and the usual regular New York Strip has not been on the menu for several consecutive nights. Food generally bland and very small portions. Waiter recommended a desert last night which we returned as it was horrible. He returned full of apologies and said the chef had let him down. Nothing has been remarkable, just barely adequate

  4. There has been a spate of attacks on Catholic churches in France since the start of the year. On Sunday last L’église Saint-Sulpice in the centre of Paris was badly damaged in an arson attack. Last Friday Ines Madani, 22, was sentenced following a three-day trial during which she was accused of encouraging would-be jihadists to go to Syria and participate in attacks against France and jailed for 8 years. She is also due to be tried later this year for her part in a failed car bomb attack on Notre Dame three years ago. The fire has happened in Holy Week and with the total destruction of the roof one wonders if the true cause will ever be established. I'm not normally a conspiracy theorist but not a huge believer in coincidence either.
  5. Just received the email to advise that at last MoveUp is being made available in the UK UPGRADE YOUR CRUISE We are very excited to announce the launch of our Celebrity MoveUp programme in the UK. Perfect for those who want to make their holiday even more special, Celebrity MoveUp allows you to bid to upgrade your stateroom after you’ve purchased your cruise. You can even increase your chances by making offers on multiple staterooms.
  6. The deafening silence from RCCL must surely be telling in itself. If there was good news, I'm sure there would have been some update by now.
  7. Some eye witness accounts in this report http://www.tribune242.com/news/2019/apr/02/eight-injured-dockyard-accident/ Getting the ship out of the broken fock with coffer dams in place will be a nightmare and won't happen quickly. The news blackout likely emphasises the seriousness of the situation.
  8. Then there's the issue of the hull and azipod damage caused when the dock broke up!

  10. It will take weeks to extract the ship and patch her up for a TA. Situation likely to be worse than reported so far. No way is it leaving "immediately"
