  1. I'm in the same boat and I really resent that fact that Celebrity is treating my cancelled cruise any differently than those two weeks before mine. They should honor the cancellation policy they had in place, and refund the non-refundable air. I have absolutely no use for a $2000 voucher on Condor Airlines.
  2. Count me in too! I would gladly take a free massage to thank me for keeping my booking.
  3. I have to say that on land I barely drink. On sea, I am always drinking. It takes a week for my BAC to go back to normal!
  4. I'm sailing on the Infinity in 7 weeks-is there an afternoon tea onboard?
  5. This might be a stupid question...first time on Celebrity in 2 months. Does the beverage packages include the gratuities? They seem to note that 18% gratuity will be added to each bill. I am assuming that is included on the beverage package...I won't be seeing a 18% charge on each drink I get (if covered under the plan) added to my account, right? As long as I stay below $15/drink?
  6. I'm just disappointed it took me 44 years to find cruising. I'm looking forward to a full 2 weeks at sea, getting to know people, etc...I don't think there are many booked on my cruise due to the virus and that fact it is a transatlantic. Entire swaths of cabins are empty. 58 days to go!
  7. It is - Miami to Barcelona with stops in the Azores, Morocco and Spain. 🙂 My first cruise was just 7 days, and it was WAY too short. It took me 3-4 days just to get my sea legs. This is a 14 day voyage, and I can't wait to spend time exploring the ship, and getting to know people.
  8. I Just booked another cruise with 9 sea days. I can't wait!
  9. I've just done my first cruise in December, and had three sea days. I could have dropped all the port days for sea days and been in complete bliss. To me, sitting on my balcony listening to the water splash up against the bow, and watching the horizon go by...I could literally feel the stress melting away. I inevitably fall asleep. One of the best parts of my cruise was waking up in the middle of the night for whatever reason and going out on the veranda. The moon on the water, the glisten of the waves, the sounds...just magical. I had booked my second cruise, and transpac from Tokyo to Vancouver BC, but it was canceled. Now rescheduling for a transatlantic out of Miami. 9 days at sea. I can't wait. In fact, my cruise planner just emailed me that my stateroom is being reserved! whoo hoo!
  10. Wonderful! I am excited to give it a try. It certainly seems to be a different experience than the mainline cruises.
  11. I have to say, I am considering taking a cruise with RSSC, and one thing that worried me about a luxury line was the potential to feel out of place. I am a professional, educated, and based on the responses I am seeing on this thread, I think my concerns can be put to rest. Thanks!
  12. I will too. I'm new to cruising, but this is a valuable lesson learned!
  13. Not at all on X...but Celebrity makes its money by repeat customers and providing an experience to its customers. I'd hate to think if I was on this cruise that my experience was one of scrambling to find last minute flights to Dubai. X was initially offering a refund and future cruise credit, which seemed very nice given the circumstances. I can't say I would be so happy if I was looking at having to pay last minute airfare to Dubai instead of Singapore. Especially if I was already in Singapore and now had to buy a ticket (with no change fees) to Dubai to catch the ship.
  14. That’s pretty horrible. If a last minute flight to Dubai and potentially a hotel the night before is cost prohibitive, then you can cancel with normal penalties? They changed the embarkation...it isn’t the passengers fault this happened.
  15. What about if you are a solo? Would the minibar be included?
