  1. It should be similar to the image below from Meraviglia.
  2. I posted this in the other Virtuosa thread: From the MSC Plusgrade wbesite FAQ and Terms sections for the US. https://upg.stage.plusgrade.com/faq/partner/9Ck2Ks4MSC https://upg.stage.plusgrade.com/terms/partner/9Ck2Ks4MSC?lang=en Before MSC went to the Plusgrade bidding system YC upgrades got inconsistent benefits. Here's from the Plusgrade Terms: 19. If the Guests are currently in a cabin with “Fantastica” or “Aurea” experience and submit an Offer to upgrade to a higher category, we cannot guarantee that they will be assigned to a c
  3. I do not think they notify unsuccessful bidders. In the US it was only offered through participating travel agents or direct bookings. MSC states in order to receive a bidding offer you do have to be signed up to receive marketing emails through your MSC profile.
  4. I'll refer people to the MSC Plusgrade wbesite FAQ and Terms sections for the US. https://upg.stage.plusgrade.com/faq/partner/9Ck2Ks4MSC https://upg.stage.plusgrade.com/terms/partner/9Ck2Ks4MSC?lang=en Before MSC went to the Plusgrade bidding system YC upgrades got inconsistent benefits. Here's from the Plusgrade Terms: 19.

  5. With US bookings the winning bids, made through the same company, were usually not awarded until after 48 hours before sailing. I met several people at boarding who did not know they had won their bid. However, a very high bid will often get accepted soon after it's made.
  6. If that is MSC's reasoning it presents some real questions regarding their safety protocols.
  7. Petra75 did a report from Grandiosa showing the MSC excursions offered. If you bought the basic three excursion package you could upgrade to nicer excursions. There's a cost sheet for the upgrades but I didn't immediately see it. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2759896-live-from-msc-grandiosa-genoa-september-6-13-2020/page/2/
  8. Did you take advantage of a discount, like adding Voyages Selection, or change to a different booking rate, like from Sail Away to All In? Or was it just a price drop? Im my experience MSC handles each of these very differently.
  9. 1) I answered on your other thread. 2) Cancellation by you or by MSC? 3) If you go through the online booking process past the entering of passenger names (you can make the info up) it will show you the cost of the MSC insurance offer. It's through CSA and links to the following page where you have to put in your state of residence and travel date to get the details. https://www.csatravelprotection.com/certpolicy.do?product=G452 I'd recommend purchasing your own insurance.
  10. The package you can get depends on your ship and sail date, so you can reference the attached list. Easy Plus has the higher drink amount. I posted the included drinks lists for each package in the thread mentioned above.
  11. I'm not sure it's true for every balcony cabin on Meraviglia but the cabins on the deck plans that have two circles, denoting the bunk bed sofa, usually have the bed by the bathroom. So if you select a cabin next to one of these your chances of getting bed by the balcony are greater.
  12. Room service for Bella has a $3.95 fee per delivery, I've seen reports they try to limit each delivery to items for up to two people. Continental breakfast items are free but most other items have a cost. The only other significant thing Bella experience doesn't get is priority of choosing main dining room times.
  13. I sure hope Seabourn implements better self-regulating safety standards than SeaDream did from Barbados. My bet is Barbados, and even other countries, are going to be a bit more strict after that disaster. I really don't think desperate cruise lines switching to less developed, more tourism hungry countries just to evade US and other country's COVID-19 regulations is going to be a good thing for the cruise industry. Whether these countries and ports are actually going to let in large cruise ships, most with no vaccination requirement, will be interesting to follow. Self-regulati
  14. Voyagers Club, Voyages Selection and Healthcare Worker discounts apply towards all booking rates. So yes, they will give you the same percent off the Cruise Only rate as the All-In rate. These discounts will not apply to packages you add on after booking.
  15. The two devices don't have to belong to the same person. So actually two different people can use their own device using the one account. Both devices can be used at the same time. The two device package cost has gone up significantly now that it's unlimited, so sure, if everyone has satisfactory access to the one device that is the most cost effective plan.
