Oh God have we missed cruising !!

As soon as MSC announced UK Staycation Cruises WITHOUT the need for 2 Covid vaccinations, we couldn't wait to set sail. MSC have been leading the way with Covid-Safe Cruising since last August, which gave us complete confidence in their tried and tested procedures. Every other cruise line is insisting on the double-jab which rules out many younger cruisers and those with children.

Our cruise aboard the 6,200 capacity was restricted to less than 1,000 passengers - and it showed. Normally, we would choose Yacht Club to escape the crowds but there is no need on these initial reduced-capacity sailings (and for some reason MSC are charging double if not treble the standard YC prices for these UK Staycation Cruises).
