Will ships be stopped from sailing from British ports before 17th May?

Seems reasonable. 

I can't imagine the P&O marketing team allowing the newest flag ship to go first. If anything goes wrong,  it would be a PR disaster.

But,  letting the second best ship lead the way seems reasonable. Good publicity,  but an old ship, so no damage to the brand, if things go Pete Tong.   

But the flagship Britannia can handle the first sailings better then the smaller vessels and be more flexible in how they work things out and help to more accurately nail everything down for the rest of the fleet?

I thought Iona was now the flagship, so yes, let Britannia sail first, so if things do go wrong, the reputation of the flag ship will not be sullied.

But both have room to play with so to speak to fine tune everything?

It would be interesting to know how many colds there were this year.  Nobody I know has had a cold.  We don't tend to get them anyway, but would be interesting.

The social distancing will have reduced the number of colds, as it has with flu, less contact with people less ability to transmit.

I had one last year, long after the advent of covid restrictions, which I put it down to a funeral I attended five days before the first symptoms, but that's a longer than usual incubation period. Other than that, I didn't set foot outside the door, so it must have dropped by through an open window.

 

I do wonder if our immune systems are now long overdue for a good workout.:classic_unsure:

I had a cold mid December, caught it off my daughter who works in retail, she caught a cold while her shop was still open . She is/was fastidious about her mask wearing and hand washing, her only unprotected area was her eyes and she had a few customers who wore their masks under their nose, on their chin and one who removed their mask to sneeze!

Trouble is when I get a cold it hangs around for ages and often ends in a bout of bronchitis, laryngitis  or something similar, sometimes makes me ill for 3 months at a time. This time I was no where near as unwell but was coughing and congested for 6 weeks.

We have been talking about this recently because neither of us have had a cold this winter.  I think it is down to the lockdown stopping us socialising.
