APRIL CRUISE ISSUE: The cruise ships. Where are they?

The first Monday in the month is normally the BTN cruise issue.  Hopefully by May we might have something positive to say.  We had planned for P&O Iona preview.

This is a list of cruise ships popular with the British market and were due ex-UK voyages this spring?  Nobody knows when they might be active.

Please do find time to view a video from the CMV flagship Columbus which this morning was due to berth at Malta for a technical stop.  Guests on board, still in a holiday mood, are in for a nasty shock when they eventually reach Tilbury!  https://vimeo.com/403311191 Look for 2 minute 25 secs plus.

If your ship is not on this list BTN would be delighted to add to the website and highlight.  Any more details welcome.  Deep sea ships only.   info@btnews.co.uk  Please credit BTN if used for your own reasons. 

Once bookings are firmly open for the balance of the year we plan to report on the splendid Saga Spirit of Discovery and also with something different Le Champlain, one of the new Explorer class of ship coming on stream from Ponant, the French cruise company.   Spirit of Discovery arrived at Southampton just before the crisis and featured in ON TOUR 17 February
