  1. Ok, what is the best way to get the discount applied to an internet upgrade?
  2. After reading through you list, I sense you left off #15 which is probably the most important reason. 15. My GF insisted we fly in the day of the cruise. Now I understand and support your logic. Enjoy your cruise.
  3. Enjoy your cruise. Please send some trip reports if you get a chance.
  4. I would think so. Here's the requirement: "This test may be taken as either a PCR test or an Antigen test, conducted within 72 hours of embarkation. "
  5. The CDC has already indicated that people who have a mixture of AZ and Pfizer or Moderna can be given a third dose of either Pfizer or Moderna and then those people will be considered fully vaccinated. I glad that some parts of Canada seem to be recognizing the problem for international travel and are working to solve the problem.
  6. Have the affected people been evacuated from the ship?
  7. That may be, people who arrive early don't comprehend that they are the problem. Hopefully they can maintain a couple of lines. One for people who are on time and a stand-by line for people who arrive early.
  8. Please stop confusing people with the facts. Some people just believe they can do what they want with no consequences and it must be someone else's fault. Sure the suites are told they can arrive when they want but the fact is that there is a limited amount of staff available to handle them when they arrive. It is interesting when people arrive before their arrival time and then complain because other people got to the port even earlier. In all of the complaints about waiting in line, I've never seen anyone ask if everyone in line was supposed to be there because of an earlier boarding time. Everyone that arrives early could be slowing down the process for people that arrive on time. Assigned boarding times are an improvement, it will probably take a while before some people will learn.
  9. Haven't you seen all of the pictures in Celebrity's advertisements? There aren't any older or heavier people in the pictures. No need for steps. 😉
  10. I hope it works for you. But please remember, Hope is not a plan.
  11. Celebrity Sales VP confirmed during a TA webinar this afternoon that mixtures of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are the only acceptable combinations in the US.
  12. Thanks. My question wasn't about finding a cheaper ride but trying to avoid a very expensive ride. I'm always a bit nervous when the driver doesn't want to use the meter. I can't find anything on the Taxi websites about a fixed price to or from the airport.
  13. Was this an official fixed price or were the Taxi drivers just not using the meter?
  14. Arriving outside of your assigned boarding time will only slow the process for you and others. The port does not have the staff to handle people arriving when ever they want without the possibility of a long wait. If there are lines when you arrive, please check to confirm you are in the proper line for your boarding time. Other CC members have been shocked to find that they had to wait in lines when they arrived before their boarding time. They described the situation as terrible when they found lines were caused by people arriving before boarding even started.
  15. Why did they have difficulty getting to the cruise port? Is there road construction around the port?
  16. I don't care what they say the guarantees are, you know all of the options and they aren't good. Do what's smart, fly in the day before your cruise.
  17. Here's a section of a letter that Celebrity just sent to me regarding my August 15 sailing on the Equinox. Following CDC guidelines we will sail with all crew vaccinated and at least 95% of guests will be fully vaccinated. All guests 16 years and older must be fully vaccinated with all COVID-19 vaccine doses administered at least 14 days prior to sailing. As of August 1, 2021, all guests age 12 and older must be fully vaccinated. I thought guests over 16 or 12 did not have to be vaccinated as long as the 5% threshold wasn't exceeded but there were extra restrictions and costs. Is this saying the 5% threshold was met with children?
  18. I'm always skeptical about the changes that Delta makes about 6 - 8 weeks before departure, particularly when they involve large time changes but this issue may be more of an issue for people that fly out of Delta's hub cities. We usually book several months ahead of time and often book departures that are earlier in the day. It's not uncommon for Delta to move us from an early flight to a later flight to allow more seats for passengers with connecting flights that may have fewer connecting flight options. This is more of an issue with returning flights. We are usually able to get back on our original flight if we act fast enough but it is an annoyance.
  19. Excellent, I'm glad it worked out well for you. It sounds like the system works well when everyone arrives at their scheduled times so there aren't any lines.
  20. The back-up at the airport and delays getting a taxi will depend on how many ships are in port. If there are 5 or 6 ships in port it will be a much different experience from what people getting off the Edge encountered today.
  21. Thanks, I would hope that you would have heard from them. Glad it worked out for you.
  22. Flying out of Detroit I'm very familiar with Delta schedule and equipment changes and I agree with you they have always been very accommodating in making adjustments. I've never dealt with Celebrity Air and I was wondering how good they were in identifying changes. In this case Celebrity air is the TA and I would hope they would notify you about any changes.
  23. Nope. Schedule a later flight. Sorry if you can't use your miles.
