  1. If you sailed on Celebrity immediately after the Norovirus the Oceanview Cafe was open! It was different since before entering crew had hand sanitizer ! When you entered the cafe you were restricted from handling the food! Crew members put the food on your plates. Very sanitary! Today the Edge and her sister ships have sinks at entrance to the cafe alllowing you to wash your hands! Crew were still there with sanitizer. We sailed on the Edge on March 1,2020 👍
  2. We have used previously Rome In Limo to get in to Rome and later to the port! Friends have flown in and did a half day tour before going to ship! very reliable!
  3. I guess this only pertains to cruises originating from Great Britain! We have a Celebrity Cruise on July 30th from Amsterdam to the British Isles! Doubt it will be allowed!
  4. Just watching World News Tonight with David Muir! They talked about Volcanoe erupting on island of St Vincent and Grenadines! Seems Celebrity Reflection and three other cruise ships are there to evacuate approximately 18,000 to nearby islands! Seems only those vaccinated will be allowed to board according to report!
  5. TV News showed tonight that infection rate has risen in Europe that many countries, especially Italy, have locked down again. Also many have stopped administering AstraZeneca vaccine due to blood clot complications on a small number ! This gives me more reason to just go ahead and cancel our July 30th Reflection cruise. Celebrity won’t cancel the cruise until after the final payment is due & I refuse to give them it!
  6. Ipeeinthepool, The Reflection is still scheduled to sail in Europe this summer with a British Isles cruise on July 30th! I honestly don’t think Celebrity will sail in Europe this year! We will know more when crews start to move back to ships scheduled to sail in Europe this season. This needs to happen within next two weeks for them to sail in May.
  7. Ashland, I hope that Celebrity will do the proper thing but highly doubt it! We will wait until April 15th, Tax Day, and see if anything happens! I was disappointed in the September 1, 2022 British Isles cruise since Scotland was not included. We plan on booking the Edge Transatlantic Rome to Ft Lauderdale next year! Will spend few days in Rome before boarding the Edge!
  8. We are booked on Celebrity Reflection July 30,2021 British Isles cruise from Amsterdam! What is the chances that Amsterdam & Great Britain will open up by then to International cruisers ? If chances are slim to none will move cruise to next year!
  9. We are booked for the July 30th Reflection cruise! This is the same cruise as Ashland. Celebrity next years cruise to the British Isles leaves out Scotland! I doubt this year cruise will sail but will wait to see what happens! In order for Celebrity sailing the Netherlands and Great Britain must allow international cruising! Doubt it will happen!
  10. We have used Rome in Limo since 2003:on our first visit to Italy! They treat you like family! We were last there in September 2019 on International Tourism Day! The Vatican Museum was free that day so lines were huge! They were able to get us head of line entrance! They took us to great place to have lunch! In the morning it was recommended we go directly to St. Peter’s Square when lines bare shorter! Got plenty of time inside St. Peter’s! Will be in Rome September 2022/and will definitely use their services again.
  11. We received our first Pfizer vaccine here at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, NY. We were lucky to get online the day link went live. Now there aren’t any new appointments for at least 10 weeks. On February 6th we get the 2nd vaccine and will be ready to cruise whenever CDC approve it! Definitely will travel once fully vaccinated!
  12. RoyalBoy, We are on the July 30th Reflection cruise out of Amsterdam! Is this the one you’re on? On the Roll Call we have an active group. Yesterday we found out there is a conference onboard of Infectious disease Doctors, PA, Nurses & other professionals in the field. Her in the U.S. Rapid Testing is now being produced in large numbers! This test gets results in 15 minutes! Yes, currently here in U.S. there is a high infection rate & spikes are happening all over! Even in N.Y. we are seeing spikes due to certain religious groups refusing to wear masks & social dista
  13. I live in Northern Westchester County of New York and our infection rate here is fairly low! Most people are wearing their masks in public and are observing social distancing. Restaurants and stores are open with restricted hours.
  14. We just booked the Movenpick Hotel for July 28-30th! Doubletree By Hilton was still showing sold out! If we were positive that the EU would open up for our cruise would have prepaid for the better rate! At this time we expect to fly out of JFK on 7/27th!
