So what is the purpose of this sticky?

 

Are those in the UK supposed to refrain from posting in the main forum and instead post here?

There is now half a page of stickys which is more than a little excessive, if sub forums are needed can official sub forums not be created?

 

Will there be a sub board for every country, a Europe board maybe, I see there is already a US sub board?

Where are the others going to post? I mean those who do not belong to the USA or UK? We are for sure a minority but we still participate in these forums.

Hello,

 

I think the intention is to stop not quite abusive but certainly frank exchanges between parties that have booked under different T&Cs yet maintain, or at least imply, that their understanding of those T&Cs apply to all.

 

It would be better if (1) All CC posters put their location somewhere in their 'Name' or the location explicitly; and (2) The heading of this thread referred to the origin/home of the T&Cs being discussed ie US T&Cs & UK T&Cs and however many more versions there are (and not just the domicile of the poster).

 

Regards,

 

Cublet

When all the virus situation is over perhaps it will be a good idea to agitate for one set of terms and conditions worldwide!

Very good suggestion Cublet.  I've just amended mine to include UK.  I for one have certainly had some "frank" exchanges regarding T&Cs in the last 48 hours! 🙂

The UK Foreign Office has now advised against all International travel for 30 days.

 

As a side note, while we were away on our Splendida part mystery cruise and it was difficult to access information, I'm grateful to those who took time to look information up on my behalf. Thanks particularly to @ziggyuk

Thanks CF, I appreciate that 🙂 

It was no big deal and I'm glad it helped, I know how hard it can be away from home without a decent connection.

Interesting Cruise Critic interview with Mr A Paradiso , head of MSC UK, you may have already seen it, if not :-

 

https://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/news/5296/ 

 

Deals with cruising Post Covid 19. Some are expected i.e. increased health screening for us oldies. Deep cleaning of cabins etc.

 

Future prices will "depend on demand" and possible "future reduced capacity." Hmm, this may be a reference to his "changes on how we manage Food & Beverages" Could the Buffet be a casualty? what do you think? Reduced capacity may mean fewer cabin stewards but more waiters required in the MDR and specialist eateries if they want tables further apart.

 

Is this a recipe for price increases 2021/22, any thoughts?

Don't know if it's been mentioned but MSC have canceled all sailings until July 10th. 

That's our cruise canceled. I've already put in my claim for a refund from our travel agent.

Just read article etc, I am about to pay a large balance for late August departure, I can't see it going ahead from Venice! 

I don't want to reschedule as it's a Golden Wedding Anniversary trip so pointless another date.

How much will you lose if you just cancel. Could be worth doing that if its only going to be a couple hundred pounds because ofthe trouble people are having trying to get a refund
