  1. You are correct. I have a Med cruise on Connie for September 2021. Saw the notice about the cancellations and forgot about the May deadline. Tried to Lift and Shift but, of course, it said my sailing was not eligible. I have not received the email someone mentioned above cancelling my cruise. This is the second cancelled today. I'm sure X is busy busy busy.
  2. I've loved reading all of your experiences! We have not done a trans cruise, but are considering one in 2022. Right now sea days sound heavenly! Actually any cruise sounds heavenly! Great thread!
  3. @Miaminice thank you for an informative review. My DH and I are so looking forward to the day we can cruise again. We have been thinking about what we would and would not be agreeable to as far as the "new normal". Everything you have reported is very agreeable to us as we have gotten used to wearing masks out and about and social distancing, etc. One question we had, which I hope I didn't miss in your report, was at the pool - did you notice any grumbling about not getting a seat? Maybe because your cruise was only around 35% everyone who wanted one could get one? We love to relax by th
  4. I'm so glad I saw your post! We have a 9 day Med cruise September 2021 Barcelona to Venice. We are thinking of doing a similar post cruise trip. I just don't know if we would have trouble with snow while driving in early to mid October. I need to look at weather trends. We are fine with trains so we may do trains. Nice to see your itinerary. Very similar to what we want to do although we may try to spend a little more time in Switzerland or at least do a scenic train while there. Hoping 2021 brings back the ability to travel!
  5. @Sleep7 Loved your review! We are somewhat new to cruising and have sailed on X exclusively the past 3 years. During this down time I am exploring what to do when we can cruise again and Azamara is intriguing. We are booked on the X Constellation for September 2021, but am thinking about switching to an Azamara Med cruise. Just seems like port times are too short to see what my husband and I would like to see. Always fun to do the research! Thanks again for a great review!
  6. Thank you so much for your report @Germancruiser I really appreciate your observations and hope you have a wonderful time!
  7. In this time of Covid, your review was a great distraction! We are scheduled for a 9 day Best of Western Med in late September 2021 on Connie. I've started researching/planning as I love to travel. Thanks for a great review, we are looking forward to the time we can cruise again.
  8. I'm sure this was incorrect information on the X agent I was speaking to, but maybe not... We had a 10 day Aruba, Curacao, Bonnaire cruise on the Equinox on May 13, 2020 that was cancelled. I called about the lift and shift because there is a May 14, 2021 9 night cruise (just left off Key West). The agent looked at what cruises were being offered for a L and S and she came back with a 14 night Iceland/Irish coast cruise. What the heck? I am going to call later and see if a different agent has a different answer.
  9. I am wondering if any of the crew are coming down with CoVid-19. I'm sure some of them will get it based on the statistics. I wonder if we will hear about these cases and if they will have to transport those with severe cases to a hospital?
  10. We will be on this cruise with you and yes I did look at the title and think "what? did I miss something??!!" Looking forward to reading your pre-cruise posts and to a great cruise in May!
  11. We rented a car because we wanted flexibility of what we saw on the way to/from Grand Case. I think the contact at Rainbow Cafe said it would be around $40 for a taxi there. It would be very easy to get a return taxi from Rainbow Cafe. It was a wonderful establishment! You'll have a great time on the Edge!!
  12. The last time we were on the Summit was November 2018 and we had a great waiter who played the guitar and serenaded us! I can't remember his name but I'm pretty sure it started with an M. If anyone knows who I'm talking about I'd love to get his name and see if he is still on a Celebrity ship.
  13. You are correct. Anyone who wants to see the show should ask when it is as it is only offered maybe 3 times during a 7 night cruise.
  14. I had one of the Celebrity beach bags. When we were on the beach, I just left it near a rock or tree. A lot of people were doing that. Definitely wear water shoes/sandals. You are walking along rocks and sandy trails. You will have a blast!
