cancelled our holiday

have decided to cancell our Grand European river cruise due to covid19 in Europe.
Sue now booking for sea cruise around Norway and then to Iceland next year . Faroe Islands included
Hopefully this one will go ahead as we now have not had a holiday for over 2 years

Booking the cruise in the first place was the height of optimism.

Why not hire a narrow boat and have a cruise on the canals or take a tour of the Cotswolds in the UK?

Foreign parts are dodgy places at the moment. Make Britain great again by holidaying at home.

Anyway you are retired, every day is a holiday.

Re: cancelled our holiday

After 2 summers of C 19, those lucky enough to be thinking of a holiday have the ideal opportunity to take one here and help our economy .

The UK has such beautiful and diverse areas, something for everyone ...

Re: cancelled our holiday

Most of us have not had a holiday for 2 years or more, itís better to be safe than sorry.

If we go this away year, it will definitely be in this country where it will be much safer and helpful in getting the UK back on its feet.

Re: cancelled our holiday

These days, the very thought of organising things at home, packing a suitcase, sitting in an airport for hours on end, then sitting in scorching sun, fills me with horror!

Re: cancelled our holiday

For goodness sake what a load of stick in the muds with no sense of adventure.
Next year hopefully where we intend to go will be mainly free of the covid business and the vouchers we have can be used with Viking.
this is what we have booked but not saying which dates for obvious reaseons

Re: cancelled our holiday

I won't be going anywhere until the mask rule is dropped.

My last hotel holiday 2 years ago we had to wear masks everywhere - couldn't sit near people - couldn't socialise - no dancing.

It was horrible. I complained & got £100 back!!
