  1. It seems to me that the problems arise not from people that identify not as English, Welsh, Scots or Irish, but as British. It seems to be exacerbated by Brexit, but affects particularly organisations that sell on their Britishness. Unfortunately this affects P&O along with less savoury organisations.
  2. Hurtigruten have various sailings with flights included from various British airports next winter. We have booked on the February cruise with inclusive flights from Glasgow next February. Depending on where you are, there may be a convenient flight inclusive sailing for you. If you check the Hurtigruten website and check their offers you will hopefully find one that suits your dates. If it’s the Glasgow flight, please say hello!
  3. We were able to do the tea plantation tour as we arrived in Sri Lanka on 17th October, stayed overnight on Boudicca, and flew home on 18th October (Fred. Olsen charter flight). I am sure there will be tours available en route to the airport, but they will probably just be around Colombo. Your tour book should arrive soon.
  4. We were on Fred’s Authentic India cruise flying back from Colombo to Manchester on 18th October. Had an overnight in Colombo and did the Tea Plantation tour (highly recommended) on an electronic transit ETA with no problems. Sri Lanka is much less bureaucratic than India.
