I wonder what the “policy excess” is likely to be on a cruise liner?


Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

When I damaged our RV by dropping it through the roof of our septic tank, both vehicle and house insurances declined to pay as they both said I had done it to myself on my land?


The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000.
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.

How did that minor bump (!) happen ?

I have seen the video but no explanation of what was going on, there is a lot of disturbed water near the collision point, was the stationary ship trying to move forwards to reduce / prevent the collision ?

Questions galore, but I bet someone will want answers or keel hauling will follow....

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

The Marine Superindenant of Carnival will have a job sorting it out between two vessels - unless one, or both, were chartered.
