  1. I am sure you paid a higher fare for the JS guarantee than the price of an obstructed ocean view. To keep your money tied up in OBC and not offer a cash refund is so wrong. Your expectation of double points seems reasonable to me also. I hope you have a travel agent that can help you with this unfair situation
  2. Finally can the ship now that the fog has cleared some. https://www.galveston.com/cruisevideocam/

  4. Empress of the Seas leaving January 13, 2021 from Miami for 4 nights. Nassau and CocoCay listed as destinations. $1008 per person for an inside.
  5. We were also on Rhapsody the last week of January in 2019. Captain warned us of of 20 to 30 ft seas ahead. Skies all of sudden went dark. Cabin window pointed down towards the water. Ship was listing due to winds. Captain changed course so the winds would hit the stern and correct the list. A great decision on his part. Problem was water gushed out of the pool and went into the forward elevator shafts causing them to be out of order until they were dried. I think January can just be rough anytime. It won't let it stop me from booking in January though. I like the variables of being on a ship and not a land based vacation.
  6. Rough seas happen. I was on Rhapsody last week and we could not port in Costa Maya Thursday. Rough seas back to Tampa. Upper deck 10 closed often. Barf bags were out on railings and never felt the need to take one. I slept well. I am disappointed when I can’t feel movement on a ship.
  7. Was in an inside before on Rhapsody. Mirror was missing on wall behind the beds. All this depends if Royal will just remove the damaged mirror and just ignore replacing it.
  8. Ok. Thank you. I will wait to board later like Royal to avoid the crowd in the buffet then.
  9. Does the MDR open for lunch on embarkation day? I can't remember back from 18 years ago on Zenith...
  10. Not quite. My 11/14/2020 sailing out of Tampa is not being displayed. Did get the cabin # back like others here.
  11. Have not been on Celebrity for awhile either, but booked for November 2020. Do they still have trays in the buffet? I thought that was a nice touch.
  12. Was you reservation downgraded to guarantee?
  13. Celebrity got a lot of free press here in Tampa when it was announced they were returning after almost a decade of no cruises from here. Zenith and Horizon were the last ships to sail from here. The new sailings are not bookable now and many like me who booked when sailings became available are now wondering why they have been downgraded to guarantee status. Not a nice welcome back to Tampa for X.
  14. Might need to be more proactive. Seems strange that some here with 2021 reservations have had their cabin # restored and my reservation is in 2020. I assumed the bookings would be restored starting from earlier sailings to later ones.
  15. Late 2020 to early 2021 sailings from Tampa still not available to book. My November 2020 booking still showing guarantee.
