  1. Thank you, Thats good news, It is a very good site, It will be a shame when Micke does stop.
  2. Re http://www.faktaomfartyg.se/index.html Any one know what happened to the excellent website of Micke Asklander . It was a Ferry encyclopaedia . I remember several years ago that he decided to pack his website in, but after many us asked for him to reconsider he did put his website back on line. He is missed here.
  3. You will find that all Travel companies seem to be going down that option of issuing vouchers instead of a refund. In UK for bookings made ABTA were attempting to get the Gov to amend the t&c for Vouchers for two years with a Refund after that time. However parliament has now off on Holiday so no new laws can be made at present time, however this has not stopped the Companies like British Airways, Carnival , (Cunard and P&O) and MSC only offer vouchers. even though the t&c you agreed on paying monies to them stated that a refund on a cancellation by them would be done.
  4. Check the UK website. Not so if we leave without a deal. My passport expires 13 July 2021 however if we leave 31st Jan 2020 with no deal then the new expired date to travel to an EU country is 13th April 2020 therefore I must renew my passport before the shown present expiry date of Jul 2021 https://www.gov.uk/check-a-passport-for-travel-to-europe

  8. Still have my ½ Stein and key ring from 1987 re the start of ms Hamburg being used to ply the route Harwich - Hamburg. They used Hotel of a 100000 stars to England as advertising, great memories and great ferry. Very tragic when it was involved in the Accident in 1989, how ever the Captain (Captain Kullack) was exonerated, he had handed over control that evening. It was a very Scenic route down the Elbe and at a decent time. Especially the weekend stopovers on board in Hamburg. If I remember correctly their was only once when the ship stayed in Hamburg and did not sail due to the weather. I
