  1. SofA cruises prior to the 20th November departure have disappeared from the website. Perhaps Saga is updating port information.
  2. I was thinking of booking this one. I’ve just searched for it using the brochure code SU035. It says call for availability, so I suspect it must be nearly fully booked.
  3. Thanks for the information maestegirl. We’re thinking of booking a Canaries cruise in January. Enjoy your cruise!
  4. I searched Saga website for this cruise using the Brochure code SUO37. It is still there, says call for availability, so it must be nearly full.
  5. That’s very helpful to know.
  6. Saga advised private transfers would be provided for July and August departures. I don’t know if they have extended this to include later cruises.
  7. I agree, Saga should continue to offer private transfers whilst pre-cruise Covid testing is required.
  8. This will be our first cruise with Noble Caledonia, but have heard good reports from others. We also booked the post cruise extension in Valletta, but can understand why it has been cancelled. Using charter flights both ways should ensure a more streamlined experience, with less hassle at the airport. The Travel Post has been a really interesting read. I enjoyed Neil Horrocks’ articles. He is returning as Cruise Director on the Island Sky so won’t be on our cruise, but maybe next year? I see you already have more NC cruises booked, so you are bound to come across him soon.
  9. We’ve booked the Sicilian Odyssey cruise. We were quite nervous about all the Covid testing and paperwork involved, but Noble Caledonia have organised pre-flight testing at the airport. The offer of exclusive charter flights made it a very attractive proposition.
  10. If you want a private car in normal circumstances, you pay for mileage over 75 miles only. We have booked a private car from Devon to Southampton for our cruise next year, and it will cost us £70.
  11. Hello Norwaylady. Saga cruises are for people aged 50 plus. Their travelling companion can be 40 plus.
  12. Thanks for posting Kentish Lass. We’re booked on the 8 night cruise on SoD departing 25th July. Originally due to call at Orkney, Shetland, Stornoway and Scrabster. We had an email today with revised itinerary along the south coast and Scilly, plus Holyhead. It’s not particularly interesting to us as we live in Devon and have visited all of the ports! Shore excursions info not yet available, so we will wait and see what Saga offer. I wanted to ask you if there was a long wait for meals to be served, given that it is waiter service only?
  13. That’s very helpful Glenndale, thank you. Viking’s 10 night fly cruise - Valletta round trip, including ports in Croatia looks interesting. We are booked on SoD 25th July which is due to sail to Scottish ports, but if the Scottish Government has not lifted their ban on cruise ships by then, we may decide to book something else.
  14. Glad you enjoyed your Viking cruise Glenndale. We’re tempted to try them. How did they compare to Saga in terms of dining, entertainment, crew, enrichment lectures etc?
