      I'm not making light of it by any means as I have to wear one at work for most of my day but we may have to think about getting some masks for the formal nights to match the frocks and the dinner suits . It's not a deal breaker for me.
      Once I know that I am sailing, then I will seek out some snazzier masks from the website that Mrs M shared with me.

        One of the benefits of the masks is that it removes the need to apply any make up below eye level.

          Our craft group has a weekly Zoom meeting, and one topic today was 'When did you last wear lipstick?'. Also several had stopped wearing earrings because they interfere with masks. It provided a light break from discussing our new project, hats and mittens for the homeless.

              Hope you're speaking for yourself, and not for me!

              No need to brush your teeth either! ​​​​​

                If wearing masks are the only way to cruise this year then I’ll quite happily be the masked non singer onboard.

                Even if we holiday in the U.K. this year we will still have to wear masks.

                I think masks are with us until after we all receive the booster covid along with our flu vaccines.
                don't want to work, just want to cruise.

                  Absolutely Issy, which is why I am not wasting any more time than I have to staying at home.

                  I've got 3 cruises booked and 3 UK short breaks booked. If they go ahead then great, if not then I will book something else a bit later in the year.

                    Going to the pub will feel like a holiday.

                      When do you think that will actually happen ? I’m not convinced it will happen in the next 3-6 months. Hope I’m wrong

                        The NHS should hope pubs open soon as alcohol related deaths increased 16% in first 9 months 2020 in England and Wales.

                          My husband, mother-in-law and I went to Warners Holme Lacy in October. Mask wearing was compulsory everywhere indoors apart from your room or when sitting down - whether to eat or drink or just to relax. Hand sanitisers were absolutely everywhere and social distancing observed.
                          We were there for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The entertainment was a little different- no dancing allowed- but it was an excellent week. We enjoyed it so much we are (hopefully!) going to Littlecote House later in the year. We found that mask wearing became second nature and in no way interfered with our enjoyment of our holiday.
                          We have a Canaries Islands cruise booked for the end of the year, and as we've already had to move or cancel three cruises, fingers crossed for this one! We have really missed cruising, not having been since December 2019 and can't wait to get back to it, masks or not.

                            The pubs and restaurants we used were well managed so relatively save no data points to hospitality being a problem.

                            The virus has moved on so unknown if the current interventions are sufficient.

                            Get education and their essential services open then wait at least 4 weeks before any other restrictions are lifted

                            We have at least another 4 weeks for lockdown and current vaccines to do their stuff if they can.

                            If teachers play the I have to be vaccinated to open up completely that's a 4 week delay from vaccinations happening.

                            Can't see it being sensible to open up hospitality for at least 3 months.
