Yes, but it might be better to hear from someone who has researched it, rather just inventing it as we go along. :lol:

Ok .... I will await advice from all you real experts about the program and if it is not a rerun of existing footage with pics of parked up ships and crew / food with nowhere to go etc with pie in the sky cruising predictions for 2021 and beyond then feel free to put me straight and I will happily eat humble pie and record it via catch up ... can't say fairer than that now can I, but no porkies in your reviews mind.

Well that's another hour of my life that I will not get back!

Totally biased programme giving the impression that the whole cruise industry was cavalier about Coronavirus when it first appeared. According to this load of rubbish programme all cruise ships should have stopped sailing when the first outbreak occurred on one ship - even though nobody at that time knew what the full impact was going to be.

Having been a passenger on a cruise ship at that time I can state quite categorically that it was taken very seriously.

I’m still traumatised by the couple who performed that song about their experience.

Totally cringeworthy

I was watching the school who stamped out racism on the other side - but OH watched the cruise programme.

He was significantly underwhelmed by the whole experience.

Basically he said hindsight is a wonderful gift.

Not sure I'll bother to watch it on catch up

Nice pictures of some big ships but that's about all.
