    What is the single thing you are missing most about cruising?

    For me it is seeing and listening close up to top class musicians playing in various venues around a cruise ship.

    Another cruise cancelled this week ,only December Queen Mary left in a very empty diary . Holidays in general slipping down my priorities. Our daughter and family live in Madrid,speak most days but haven't seen them for 15 months. Would love to snuggle into my little grandsons mass of blonde curls.

    Got it in one, have enjoyed lots of travel both work and holidays, seen and experienced almost all I want to and it would not bother me if I never sat on an aeroplane again, we have 2 trips this year on Viking, both "free" if they happen great, if not so be it. Due to go to Turkey in May for golf, same we have mentally written of the cost of that one

    I would like my old 2019 day to day life back

    Maybe it's because just about everything we enjoy has been cancelled or curtailed but I haven't missed cruising as much as I thought I would. I suppose I miss the planning as much as anything. In the last few years we have often combined our cruises with land based breaks and I've always enjoyed researching the various combinations.

    Travelling to the port, boarding, experiencing a new ship, eating in the speciality restaurants, lounge atmosphere (excludes Celebrity of course) , drinking cocktails, meeting new cruisers, getting off at ports. Sorry that’s more than one but I can’t help myself.
    My sentiments exactly!

    I did mean cruising. See the first line of my post.

    There are only so many title characters that will show on the summary listing and even my abbreviated title is not showing completely.

    Remembering back to my school days, many, many years ago, teachers would always say "Read the question in full before attempting to answer it." but not to worry, all replies welcome.

    We have been very fortunate in being able to see our family even when it was socially distanced. We’ve missed being able to see friends, having meals out every so often or seeing a live performance in a theatre. I think cruising will feel very exciting again once we are able to go on one, providing everyone has been vaccinated against Covid. Little things like being able to go shopping in Manchester will seem like a treat as it has been so long since I was able to head into town. I know people do most of their shopping online these days, but I still enjoy finding a bargain on my travels or being able to try on a dress that looks good on me (a monumental task at times 😆), not to mention other articles of attire that aren’t on show but which are absolutely necessary. 😊

    Most of all, I miss being able to give people a hug when they need it.

    Take care and stay well. Helen

    I miss my family most of all and my friends too. I miss being spontaneous, meeting friends for coffee, going to a movie, out for dinner. I miss cruises and other holidays but, like Peter they are quite low down on my list right now..

    Just like most of you, cuddles from my grandchildren is the one thing I really really miss at the moment and just being with them as it's been so long and they are growing up very fast.

    We do miss cruising and travelling to visit family and friends all over the country but I'm content to stay at home for now especially given today's awful news (sorry about almost mentioning the C word). If I could choose one thing I miss about cruising I think I'll choose simply the motion of the ocean but just a gentle one 🚢

    Family and friends first

    As for cruising, it's the sitting on the balcony with a cold glass of anything, watching the birds diving into the sea, and anything we can spot in the sea

    Both seem a long way off in this never ending nightmare

    Well that's depressing On the up side, my house is looking lovely, .................................................. Carol

    I'm not missing a cruise ship as I know life is what it is at the moment and we will be aboard Victoria as soon as we can.
    You’re right - it’s an open title and I should have noted that. In that case, it’s my daughter who is single and alone in her home whilst working in an extremely demanding role in the NHS. (I’m aware of extended households / bubbles but unfortunately, it’s not that simple)
