  1. My stage 3 Kidney failure was diagnosed in 2017 - Right kidney removed in November 2017 - we have been on at least 6 times since then - and looking forwarding to our next cruise (hopefully a TA in APril 2021) HANG IN THERE !
  2. I love all of the posts - makes me miss cruising even more ! We have been used to cruising about 3 or 4 times a year - luckily we managed to get in a cruise in early March - just before everything shut down I guess what we will do as soon as we cruise again (hopefully a TA in April 2021) is simply relax and enjoy being able to cruise again - watch the waves from our aft balcony - and do lots of nothing !! -
  3. We are still hoping to be able to cruise on our TA April 2021 (re-scheduled after the TA in April 2020 was canceled) We have already applied the FCC's from the canceled cruise to the 2021 cruise. (even had some "left over" credits ! )
  4. We totally agree - I hope that the cruise-lines will make it VERY CLEAR what the guidelines on-board will be - BEFORE we actually commit to the cruise (So we can cancel) - If we have to wear a mask - we won't cruise - even though we really, really, really miss cruising !!
  5. I simply cannot believe that cruise ships will sail again with a REQUIREMENT of wearing a mask !! What kind of a vacation would that be ?? (Just my 2 cents)
  6. THANK YOU for this (well written) post ! I agree......
  7. We were scheduled for a Transatlantic to sail in April 2020 - which, of course was cancelled. We requested, and received (took about 1 month) 125% FCC. We quickly used part of that FCC to book another TA in April 2021 - with all of the perks - even had about $3,000 left over FCC - used to partially pay for an Alaska cruise in 2022 We've booked a couple of ship's shore excursions (Iceland) and also some private tours with ToursByLocals (all fully cancellable - which, I sure hope we don't have to do !) Air travel booked using Frequent Flyer miles Trying very hard to be optimistic that by April 2021 this mess will all be settled and that we will be able to sail
  8. Oh - I forgot about that ! - Seems that I did that once - several years ago and I had to wait for a long time for them to be delivered - but - will certainly try that again - thank you so much Ha ha ha - a "waffle maker" ???
  9. I read somewhere that you can use your (hair) flat iron to iron your clothes (well - sort of) 😀 Has anyone tried this ? - What brand/type of flat iron Thanks (I know this sounds like a trivial question during these trying times - but still optimistically planning on cruising - next booked one is in December )
  10. We have a cruise booked for December 6, 2020 - Final Payment due in August - totally agree that if the thermal spa is closed - pretty much a deal breaker - You mentioned that you will be calling to extend the due date - is that possible ??? I have never heard of that Thank you
  11. Just some more (very) wishful thinking here - we had to cancel our September 14th cruise (since the current no sale runs through Sept 15) bummer - Our next one booked is a short 1 week out of New Orleans on December 6th - sure hope we get to go ! Then the next booked cruise is an April 2021 TA (replacing our canceled April 2020 TA) - I am thinking better odds on that one ! Stay safe, everyone 😀
  12. Posting this just FYI: We were owed a total of $1,530.00 from Celebrity (long story - change in room) - Credit showed in our account on-line - as a credit due Call to Celebrity on Jun 2nd - were told "total amount of credit will be issued against form of payment used" (our Credit Card) - information sent to Credit Card company today " On June 28th our credit card showed a credit from Celebrity in the amount of $1,318.78 - I tried to calculate just how that amount was determined - to no avail... Then on July 2nd our credit card showed a credit from Celebrity in the amount of $211.22 Grand total = $1,530.00 ! ta da !! 😀
  13. Here is our story: Our April 2020 TA was cancelled - we got 125% FCC (we had not yet purchased any kind of insurance from anyone) We booked another TA for April 2021 - used most of our FCC - no problem - Same room, same perks still had a $3,000 FCC - just used it for a short Mexican cruise in December (hope we get to go !) - no problems at all (we use on-line discount Travel Agent) Never told we HAD to have insurance
  14. We were booked on the 11 Night Southern Caribbean September 14, 2020 from Ft Lauderdale ---- no 11 night cruises next year that we could lift and shift to (only 12 night cruises) - we waited until that cruise was cancelled - and received 125% FCC - which totally covered our 12 night Caribbean cruise in 2021 - with a little bit left over - turned out to be a good deal ! 😀
  15. OK - Yup - trying to stay optimistic (while also staying realistic) Thanks
