P&O Cruises Say Only Passengers Who Have 2 Jabs Allowed On Board

Holidaymakers planning a so-called “staycation” with P&O Cruises, will have to prove that they’ve had two doses of a covid vaccine or their booking will be declined.

A spokesman for the company, which is the largest cruise line in the UK, said that this is a “strong expressed preference on the part of our guests.”

P&O said that passengers will be required to wear masks in certain areas of ships and that travel insurance is mandatory. Social distancing will be in operation and guests will be served at their tables.

SAGA Cruises has also said that its passengers will be asked for proof of vaccination before boarding. SAGA will resume cruises from June.

P&O Cruises, which is part of the Carnival group, will run trips on two ships this summer. The Britannia will cruise from Southampton along the south coast of England for three or four days, and The Iona will travel up to Scotland from Southampton for seven-day trips.

Any passenger falling ill on a cruise will be tested for coronavirus. Anyone testing positive will be isolated and quarantined.

Well doesn’t that just sound like a whole lot of fun? You get to the port and before boarding you must show them proof that you have been vaccinated. You must wear masks in certain areas of the ship.

You cannot sit at the bar and instead must remain at your table at all times. You must only sit with the person(s) you came on board with. No mingling. If you sneeze you’ll be given a coronavirus test. Fail it and you’re isolated. Presumably you’ll be confined to your room.

No thanks.

A floating coffin as time goes by.

piss and off cruises. Anyone paying for a holiday under these rules and restrictions must be nuts, can imagine the captain in one of those space suits, a mask on under his helmet, ready to pass out saying ” welcome aboard “, are people that desperate for a holiday, mental.

Eric

My thoughts exactly, but you can bet that some morons will be only too keen to humiliate themselves

Rico

A cruise would be my idea of Hell, now it’s Hell on roids.

Kafla

Oh for feck sake. Would probably have more fun on the Marie Celeste these days. I did a Mediterranean cruise in 2008 and enjoyed the places we visited, the people we met (they weren’t all old codgers) the delicious food. Only thing I didn’t like was feeling queasy, obviously haven’t got sea legs. I hope this bites these companies in the backsides.

martin

Kathy the Marie celeste is the same, the masks, it was the social distancing that finished that ship, they followed the social distancing rules that much, they have never been seen again, Panorama have done a documentary about it, it’s being aired later this month, put a mask on and tune in.

Kafla

Hahahahaha and you’re back in the room. 🤣

Michelle

Who wants all those rules and forced compliance while on holiday? Don’t most people get enough of that at work?

Herb

A compulsory surprise anal swab test at the end of a cruise before you disembark would be a “special treat”.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day
This is not an Irish song, but seems to fit in the current climate. Well worth listening to.
Rise Up
Andra Day

You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry-go-round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out in
Move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains

And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
And I’ll rise up
High like the waves
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you

When the silence isn’t quiet
And it feels like it’s getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we’ll take the world to its feet
Move mountains
Bring it to its feet
Move mountains

And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you

All we need all we need is hope
And for that we have each other
And for that we have each other
And we will rise
We will rise
We’ll rise
We’ll rise

I’ll rise up
Rise like the day
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I will rise a thousand times again
And we’ll rise up
High like the waves
We’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
We’ll rise up
And we’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you

Hi Gerry, I know you like a song.

Gerry

Ye can’t beat an oul song Foxy lad!!

Yeh gotta have an oul song!!

To paraphrase an oul Swedish group with an oul Irish twist (and I’m allowed to do it today!!) ..

“Without an oul song or an oul dance what are we.. so thank ye for the oul music.. for giving it to me!!”

Me and the rest of ya!!

Get up da yard!!

☘️

Urban fox

Abba! I believe in angels, something good in everything I see. l cross the street I have a dreem.

Gerry

😄

Kafla

Gerry, you’re back. Was missing your comments. 😘

Gerry

Not as much as I miss masking them Kathy!!

But just had to clock out for a day or so due to matrix enslavement commitments!!

All better now…

For a day or two at least!!

😬

Kafla

Oh dear. Sometimes I wish I could fast forward another year and see what predicament we’re in.

Gerry

Well if the slave masters have their way… It won’t be pretty!!

Gerry

Ha!

Just re read this comment I made yesterday… And I was sure I wrote ..as much as I miss MAKING them..

But I’m noticing now that it says MASKING!!!

lol!!

Now I’m virtually certain it said MAKING yesterday and not “MASKING” .. but I guess.. I can’t be certain now, can I!!

Anyway… The correct wording was “not as much as I enjoy MAKING them Kathy!!”

For clarification purposes!!

Hmmmm… May have to start taking screenshots from now on to see if these posts are potentially being hacked???

🤔

Kafla

Just sent you a private message.

Gerry

👍

Kafla

😘 🥰 Thank you Foxy xx

Urban fox

Hi Kathy good to hear from you. Hope your OK

Kafla

Yes fine thanks.

One may choose the Titanic or the Diamond Princess package.

At 7.30pm in the main ballroom there will be a mass shedding of mutant viral packages ending at midnight when the immune system shuts down.

Mark

Who wants to pay out all that money for the experience of staying on a hospital ship with a load of scared vaccinated socially distanced sheep wearing face masks. These massive cruise ships have never appealed to me their sheer seize causes problems everywhere they go. The only cruise ship I was ever on belonged to the grey funnel line where I served for 9 years.

Craig

The avenues for the unvaccinated are shutting down. We all knew this would happen.

LoopyMoo

Cruises are absolute petri dishes. I can understand the draw for older people as it’s an easy way to see tourism sites. But even before 2020 there was always a real high risk of flus, norovirus, coronaviruses, food poisoning, legionnaires disease…….but all you get from them is “you only live once” and “I’ve never been ill in my life”….. but now because the government have been at them for a year with the constant mind games, I daresay they’ll file on board like obedient masked vaccinated droids.

Healthy young and middle aged people have been severely restricted over the year and possibly permanently harmed mentally/developmentally to protect older people. Now older people are dictating to companies they demand everyone including healthy young people to get jabbed into the future just so they can enjoy themselves… why are they worried if they’re vaccinated? Wasn’t that the whole point?! Selfish selfish selfish.

How funny, they got vaccinated to resume normal life. Only allowed on board with masks and social distancing 😂

One of these ships would provide the perfect vehicle for another high publicity outbreak of a new variant in order to ramp up the fear factor. The Queen Mary 2 variant has just broken out in Southampton lets have another lockdown. Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance will be licking their lips in gleeful anticipation.

Kay

Yeah, it’s completely baffling how the vaccinated don’t see the irony…

Ronald Templeman

Never been on a cruise and never want to so will not cause me a problem, however if you do like cruises then this is the time to fight.

LoopyMoo

I will speak up for anyone even if I don’t intend on participating in their hobbies and holidays. You know the old poem that goes “and then they came for me”. However, with cruises, I suspect their key demographic were the ones knocking the vaccine centres doors down on 8th December

Kay

Sounds like a lot of fun…

cornwallnick

And you are paying through the nose for the privilege….
