    Thatโ€™s very disappointing for you being so close to sailing date. Have you been offered an alternative at a later date?

    In the light of a crew member on QE testing positive for Covid, other cancellations may be on the cards.

      We havenโ€™t been offered an alternative cruise only a FCC or a refund. ๐Ÿ˜‚

        Our Aug 6th QE has just been cancelled too. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ refund or 110% FCC offered. Gutted doesnโ€™t even begin to say how we feel, 6 cruises cancelled since April 19.
        don't want to work, just want to cruise.

            There's another cruise cancelled.

            We were due to sail 6th August. QE cruises cancelled until 13th August.

            Our cruises seem to be the one before the restart, this year. Our QV Northern Lights in Oct was cancelled but the ones afterwards were re assigned to QE, and now our 6th Aug cancelled but 13th August is a goer.

            We have had so many cruises cancelled I have lost count but it's around seven or eight now.

            Bummer. We needed this break too!
            Sorry, didn't see this thread when I posted on Tug's thread.

            I'm not gutted, but I am disappointed.

              I was so looking forward to seeing you both too.

                  Sorry to hear these cruises are cancelled, did Cunard give you a reason for this? Not everyone will be already aware that they had a slight issue on board.

                    Hi all
                    Not a cruise butโ€ฆ..my daughter had her July 27th Holiday in Spain cancelled by TUI yesterday
                    All TUI holidays to Amber List countries due to depart before the 31st July cancelled.

                    The E-Mail never said why.

                      Cunard's return to service will now be on 13 August 2021.
                      Since March 2020 our priority has been to work with public health, medical and scientific experts as well as industry bodies and various Government departments to put in place an approved framework of protocols to protect the health and wellbeing of our crew, guests and the communities we visit, both during our pause in operations and once we begin sailing.

                      These protocols, of which we are very proud, have proven to be very effective and we had no cases of Covid-19 in over 5,000 crew members until last month when a small number of cases were identified amongst new crew boarding the ship.

                      Working with Southampton Port Health we have taken steps to successfully contain the situation and one of these actions has been to limit new crew joining the ship. This has meant we will not be able to complete final essential preparations or deliver our comprehensive training schedule to the full contingent of crew prior to our first few scheduled sailings as we return to service.

                      Therefore, I am very sorry, but voyages Q119P, Q119Q, Q120P, Q120Q and Q121P will have to be cancelled. We know how much everyone has been looking forward to these coastal holidays but we will not sail until we are ready to deliver the Cunard experience you and your customers expect. After such a long period it is critical that all our crew are trained in the new procedures and refreshed in the very special White Star service which makes a Cunard voyage so memorable.

                      Please see the sections below for details of the options available to your customers.

                      Once again, please do accept my sincere apologies and I very much look forward to seeing you and your customers on board very soon.

                      Best wishes,
                      Simon Palethorpe
                      President, Cunard

                        How disappointing.

                        Personally, I would NOT be booking cruises this year. It's just too unpredictable yet.

                          Yes, it's dicey, but if you don't book then you won't be going. A bit of a silly statement I know because it's stating the bzzzzing obvious but the only good thing to come out of all this is booked passengers will get all their cash back or110% of monies paid as FCC [we won't as our cruise was completely paid for by the FCC accrued from past cancelled cruises] so all that's lost is the enjoyment factor from being at sea.

                            Hi Mrs M
                            Sorry to hear that this has been cancelled as it looked like you might get away at last.
                            We looked at one on Princess leaving on my birthday which was reasonably priced, only 3 nights but better than nothing.
                            I doubt I'd get madam on it though

                            Onto the next one.

                              That drink's now on hold now too as well as a meal with Issyalex!
                              Weโ€™re destined not to meet up with some fellow forum friends this year sadly.
