  1. Agreed. It was when checking that they were actually doing what we requested that we discovered they were converting to sterling so we were able to have it adjusted. I should also mention that it was not a Princess cruise.
  2. It’s a good idea to check half way through the cruise that they have followed your request. We’ve had instances in the past that despite us telling them to bill us in $ and let our cc company convert, they have ignored it and done the conversion. We are in the fortunate situation of having one of those cards with no foreign exchange charges. I don’t think any cruise critic guidelines will be broken by mentioning credit card companies, only applies to travel agents I think.
  3. We have 4 nights between cruises at Easter next year and I am looking at both of these hotels. We do like the beach but at Spring Break maybe a hotel away from the action may be preferable. We usually stay in Hollywood Beach but thought maybe a change of scene this time round. Any advice? Thanks in advance.
  4. Thanks for the info. Looks like a major investment. Hope it will be operational by the time we go next Spring.
  5. Are you still on this cruise.? There is a roll call if you’re interested.
  6. I am a little confused about Amber Cove. I read on here that the dock was built by Carnival. Does that mean only Carnival ships dock there? On our cruise itinerary is refers to Puerto Plata but there appears to be 2 docks. We loved Grand Turk and Amber Cove sounds a little like that. Anyone know where Celebrity docks?
  7. We are so used to her being there that we’ll miss her when she goes.
  8. I’m happy to say that after intervention by our wonderful travel agent (I only wish I could let people know about her, but obviously not) not only did they say that it was an error but that there was another promotion at the time of booking and gave us another $100. So sometimes it does work out.
  9. That’s correct. You will use one of the package dinners on the first night and the details of where and when will be in your cabin. You don’t get to choose. I have no idea if you can request a change if you don’t like the selection. We don’t care for Petit Chef and if we are allocated that I would want to change it. For all of the other nights you have to book at the Speciality restaurant desk onboard. Good idea to go there as soon as you board and book all of your dates/times.
  10. I have checked but I’ll double check with our TA. In the greater scheme of things we have 6 cruises booked over the next 2 years which are costing £1000s. I’m not losing sleep over $100. I just wanted to know where it went.
  11. The mystery is resolved. I took your advice and emailed them. Evidently they have adjusted our obc because last week we asked to move to another (more expensive) cabin. They then adjusted the obc and took away 50%. Ah well. If it helps them to recoup the billions they’ve lost!!!!
  12. Yes. It was showing $200 before I booked the tours. It was carried over from a cancelled cruise.
  13. Yes. It was only for under $40. I decided it’s best to cancel and rebook later. However they have only refunded $100 plus the cc charge. I’ve booked like this many times in the past without any problem.
  14. We have a cruise in April next year with some OBC from both Celebrity and TA. I know you can use the X OBC online so I decided to book a couple of the most popular tours. I used $200 OBC and paid the balance by credit card. Today I have an email from X saying they require a payment of $200. Is this just another of the famous X IT glitches.?
  15. We are doing a similar itinerary. Sydney to Honolulu with Royal. Staying 2 nights in Hawaii and then Celebrity to Vancouver. Thank you for that reassurance.
