    Can't say I'm surprised. I wonder how many other countries will follow suit.

      I read a similar report last night but will coronavirus even be over?? It could be the 12th of never! Only one viral disease has been eliminated from the global population - smallpox.

        'indefinitely' means until they need the money

          So thousands arriving by plane and train each day are welcomed with open arms but cruise passengers aren't.
          Does seem strange.

            Wasn’t there a small out break recently because the authorities had refused to immunise everyone? Hope not as this would be good news.

            Understandable perhaps of Spain banning cruise ships - but why then are they wanting British tourists given the widespread dismissive nature of many to this virus?

              Blame the Diamond Princess and other cruise ships incidents.

              I wonder if they will clamp down on skiers.

                Will corona virus ever "be over"?

                Looks as though we can say goodbye to our November Iona cruise to Spain, Portugal and Gibraltar then.

                  Portugal is currently a red zone country. Cruise to Gibraltar then??

                    Is it me or is it "them"? Replies are showing latest first not last as has been the case.

                        Depends on what you have selected at top of the threads. Posts/Latest Activity.

                        Click on posts to view in number order, latest last.

                        Click on latest activity to view latest post first, which is my choice as it also reduces size of post and avoids posters profiles and signatures.

                            Hi Garf
                            Cruise ships are full of old dodderer super spreaders.

                              Spain changed to indefinite(no end date) nearly 2 weeks ago. it was part of the announcement that they would be opening up on the 21st June just most report left off the cruise bit..

                              Telegraph(pay wall) reported on the 17th others were a bit later
