Green List countries: Where can you holiday this summer and with which cruise line?
Green List countries where British travellers can go on holiday without any quarantine restrictions from May 17 were unveiled last week.
Only 12 countries and territories feature on the list to the disappointment of countless travellers.
What's more, most of the destinations remain inaccessible to UK holidaymakers due to local Covid restrictions.

Rita Marques, secretary of state for tourism, told the BBC: “I do believe that Portugal will soon allow restriction-free travel, not only for vaccinated people but those who are immune or who test negative."
She added: "We hope to welcome British tourists from May 17. Everything will be ready by mid-May.”
Meanwhile, Iceland is allowing visitors regardless of origin as long as they can present a certificate of full vaccination against Covid or certificate of previous Covid infection.
