  1. P&O have announced the cancellation of its world cruise sailing from Southampton in Jan 2021. I wonder if Cunard will be doing the same with QM2 and Queen Victoria?
  2. Refund for Transatlantic 24th May arrived today
  3. Looks as though another on of my cruises will be cancelled. I wonder if the World cruise would have more chance of going ahead if it went out via Dubai?
  4. I read in a UK newspaper that South Africa is not allowing International tourists into the country until Feb 2021. I wonder what effect that will have on the 2021 world cruise?
  5. jsailox Cunard told me that I couldn't use a FCC on an existing booking. Has the policy changed?
  6. According to the internet, the QM2 is heading west out of the English Channel. Does anyone know where she is going?
  7. My next cruise is not until May 24th and I'm hoping that, by then, Cunard will have a clear and definite refund policy. Does anyone know why the QM2 is only doing 2 knots in the middle of Walvis Bay?
  8. QM2 now en route to Southampton - currently doing 23knts
  9. QM2 has now turned about and is heading towards Durban with an ETA of 13.00 30th - local time
  10. Does anyone know what is happening to the QM2? It was due to dock in Durban, but it appeared to be sailing at slow speed a few miles offshore and then it was anchored outside the port. It is now said to be sailing at 11 knots away from Durban!
  11. I would check availability with Hartley, but Day 4 looks best
  12. I cant swim, so I thought I was being very brave. It was a most enjoyable experience and probably my only chance to see what goes on under the waves.
  13. Pick up from the pier and then the boat takes you out to a small atoll offshore. Its quite interesting watching everyone squeeze into their diving suits - especially after over indulging on the cruise. You explore the coral about 15 feet below the boat and various fish swim around. Some are well known to the lead diver and are obviously regulars around the reef.
