  1. I like a reasonably firm mattress (not a super firm one) and find Silversea beds just right. Perhaps if you like a really soft mattress it might be a bit firm, but I'm sure my butler told me last time that alternatives were available if it wasn't right for me.
  2. I contacted Silversea because I am genuinely exempt due to a disability. They have informed staff, my butler and shore excursion staff, and asked me to wear my sunflower lanyard when boarding and walking around the ship, which I'm happy to do.
  3. Glad it's back! Booked my excursions for next week. Restaurant bookings were all still there once I'd changed my password.
  4. Me too, except my sailing is next week! I thought I'd be able to get onto My Silversea by now; looks like I might be booking excursions onboard, or just not bothering..
  5. No. I just managed to upload my covid pass before the outage and received an eticket hours later, but nothing about luggage tags. No good at the terminal because I've booked my case with the Baggage Handling Company who now cover Silversea in Southampton, and they're collecting it on Tuesday 7th. As I'm therefore packing it tomorrow I've made some temporary labels and slid them inside the plastic label holders attached to my case. Also the Baggage Handling Company label has my suite number written on. I sail on the altered 15th September itinerary. That will have to do...
  6. No information apart from the email. I just assumed there would be no further labels but I could be wrong. Got all my documents and going to Southampton. We will see how it goes. It all feels a bit surreal.
  7. Bit difficult if you're in the UK. All I've been sent is an eticket, and that after I struggled just before their systems went down to upload my covid vaccination record to Silversea. I'm getting a new suitcase tomorrow because mine is at the end of its well travelled life, and I'll have to buy one with luggage tags attached to put my cabin number on.
  8. I now have the email. The itinerary is VERY different from the one I booked: no Torquay, Channel islands, France, Hamburg or Amsterdam. Instead it's mainly Scotland, with only Falmouth in England and Fishguard in Wales. Scottish ports are Glasgow, Edinburgh, Oban, Dundee and the islands of Stornaway and Kirkwall. Of course as My Silversea is still down I cannot book any excursions; I assume the ones I'd booked in the cancelled ports will automatically be cancelled, and I assume my restaurant bookings will still be on there otherwise that's going to be a right nuisance! I was offered a refund or 110% future cruise credit in the email. As I've booked baggage transfer, train and hotel the night before I've decided to go and see how it is. At least no flying is involved so only a pre boarding test.
  9. I'm on the 15th September cruise and haven't received a message; wouldn't have known without this site. I am not that worried and did suspect it would turn into a UK only cruise, but lack of communication IS a worry...
  10. I have a lanyard and a badge and am quite prepared to show them if it makes life easier for staff at the terminal or onboard.
  11. All of your comments about staying locked up at home etc because I am genuinely exempt from mask wearing are unlawful disablist hate speech and have been reported. I have enough problems being disabled without this amount of hate. I am removing myself from this forum for the sake of my mental health, What a nasty bunch you are!
  12. I am genuinely exempt and have been told I will need a doctor's letter, which is against the Law. My GP said that doctors are NOT issuing letters because the Law says they don't have to. So between a rock and a hard place, I shall have to cancel. Currently consulting with the EHRC over disability discrimination.
  13. I'm not that bothered about £50 actually; it's the remaining £2000 I'm not paying to be restricted. I would just charge back to annoy P and O
  14. I am booked for July 2021. it might all be over by then, but it was a booking done 2 years ago to get a single balcony cabin. Balance will be due in April; if it looks as though these restrictions will be in place I intend not to pay, and to charge back my credit card for the deposit ( which was small).
  15. A lot of the cases in the north east were students being tested; many were asymptomatic which is why it seemed to spread so quickly. I've just had a message from Durham university ( I do a bit of work for them) that cases are now falling. They did lock down any affected "bubbles" immediately.
