  1. I suggest contact P&O Directly, If you have any FCC available or Future Cruise Deposit (FCD) it should be recorded against your P&O Peninsular Club number. P&O will be able to look up your "cancelled" Voyage reference and cross reference it. With their Complete Cruise Solution booking engine.
  2. See here from You Tube for QM2 and QV, Off the Jurassic Coast in Weymouth Bay (UK) today. Posted by Sky_High_Photography today.
  3. Here is the latest You Tube Video of QV and QM2 in Weymouth Bay (UK) , The Jurrasic Coast. Posted on You Tube by Sky_High_ Photography on 2nd June 2020.
  4. Here is the You Tube Video of them if allowed (as P&O Ships)
  5. Taken a few days ago of QV (and Silversea," Silver Spirit" ) leaving Southampton for a run along the South Coast, from You Tube.
  6. It was ages ago that a poster had discovered that the Name Queen Anne had been registered by Cunard for their 4th Ship, and informed us on this forum. Everyone more or less agreed that it would not be name used at the Christening ceremony.
  7. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southampton_District_Energy_Scheme Southampton also has its own District energy scheme, which also supplies Carnival House and West Quay Shopping Centre and the Council Offices and more.
  8. I still reckon that from when we started to get more aware of COVID-19 back in March and to Cruise lines suspending cruising, to now in May 2020 is a Completely different scenario. Who would have expected the UK Government to be paying the wages of over 6million workers in May 2020 ? With the present 6ft social distance recommended and many people scared to travel on Public Transport when restrictions get lifted until a possible vaccine is available, I think many things will be changing , From Possible Suitcase delivery, arriving in the terminal building, to getting on board and once on board to what they used to be , before Cruise ships start sailing again . What those measures will be are known only to the bosses and staff who will get trained for the eventual start of cruising. What "used to be" will be in memory and a new style will know doubt be put in place with major changes and tweaks . Will Queens Grill on Cunard or MSC Yacht Club ever be the same again ? It will be very interesting to hear the changes from those travellers venturing into the unknown world of Cruising with COVID-19 around us. When the ships start taking passengers again.
  9. Will be interesting to see the Embarkation changes to be made due to the COVID-19 situation . Obviously the only people to know what the procedure will be when cruising starts are the staff on board each ship and I am sure even that will get tweaked as time and situations present themselves.
  10. It all depends what one wants from the Hotel in Southampton and if you wish to Travel on to your Cruise ship. Do you want inclusive car parking whilst away , a Boutique Hotel or a Cheap Basic. Southampton has them all, from Leonardo Royal Hotel Grand Harbour, not the same company as The Harbour Hotel Ocean Village , The Holiday Inn, The Pig in The Wall, Ennio's and The White Star Tavern. ? All different
  11. Actually received, possibly for some time to come, my last Carnival share dividend last week .
  12. Saga from 6pm 13th March have now excluded COVID-19 caused by or relating to. ! some other company policies like AXA will still cover if you get ill through COVID- 19 though as long as you are not travelling against Foreign Office Advice here in the UK. Coronavirus (COVID-19) Please not, from 6pm on 13th March 2020, any new Saga Travel Insurance policies will not provide cover for any claim caused by or relating to Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). Coronavirus (COVID-19) Please note, from 6pm on 13th March 2020, any new Saga Travel Insurance policies will not provide cover for any claim caused by or relating to Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).
  13. May be a good idea for some, but not those with Annual Travel Insurance policies who have already paid the premium. Some annual policies once you are in will not allow an opt out, for you to rejoin the scheme one was in, again !
  14. It may not be as easy that, if you go against your government's travel advice, then one will not be insured. Which really would be stupid thing to do ! https://www.gov.uk/government/news/over-70s-and-at-risk-brits-advised-against-travelling-on-cruise-ships
