  1. We were on Anthem Oct 2019, New England and had no issues
  2. I was on Empress a couple of years ago out of Miami. Her best years are behind her.
  3. I do not believe the $15/25 is the fee that they refer to when the say “refundable with fee”. I have asked them directly in the past and they just say “if there is a fee”. I am assuming it is an airline fee, not sure when it kicks in or on which airlines
  4. On the air2sea site it always says “refundable ticket (with fee)” I can never get an answer on when that “fee” applies. I had a cruise and I changed the ticket twice to a lower price ticket and never had a fee charge. Is the fee charged only after you pay for the ticket with final cruise payment
  5. Good question. Here is what my insurance is doing for people, not a refund but a voucher. Never hurts to ask you insurance company If you cancelled your insurance policy on or after January 24, 2020 due to Coronavirus concerns and you are not eligible for a refund, you may be eligible instead for a travel insurance premium voucher for the full value of the policy purchased. To be eligible for a premium voucher, your original trip departure date must be no later than April 30, 2020. All premium vouchers issued must be redeemed for a new travel insurance policy for a covered trip booked no later than September 30, 2020. However, the trip departure date may occur after September 30, 2020. also If you have not yet begun your trip, you may modify your insurance policy and apply the entire premium paid to a new booked trip. Your new premium will be calculated based on the details of your rebooked trip. If the new premium is greater than your original premium, there will be additional premium charged. If the new premium is less than your original premium, no amount of the original premium will be refunded
  6. change the preferred times in your search. sometimes that helps.
  7. Looking for reviews or alternative to Luggagent luggage delivery service at FCO. I used something similar in Paris and it worked well. Thanks
  8. Also, if you do not like the fares you are seeing under quick search, modify the preferred times. You will get all sorts of different fares and flight options depending on what you pick. Do not pick a preferred airline or non stop flight options, as those only show high fares. With those set to no preference, they will still show in the results.....For ATL to FCO the best fares show as depart 3PM and return 12PM. A month ago the best fares showed with 6PM and 12PM...... that has been my experience.
  9. I called to change my refundable flights. I was just told by and agent that the fare under quick search on air2sea was just an example of a fare that might be available in the next 3 months, it did not really exist. so the $810 fare was really $2500. He insisted on it. I knew he was wrong so I asked for a supervisor. The supervisor was on a Skype call so he had the agent mod my existing reservation so I could attempt a second booking. Well you guessed it, I was able to book the $810 fare no problem........ What is going on at air2sea that the agents cannot look up accurate fares for flights and then just make up reasons why the fare I am seeing is wrong. I feel sorry for people that don't push back and end up overpaying or getting bad connections.
  10. The question was meant to ask if I purchase a 3 night package and a chef’s table; would there be a combo purchase discount..Thanks
  11. Any opportunities on board to get a discount by combining 3 night dining package and Chefs table?

    More to the story... I was able to get various fares to show up if I changed the default options in search for my ATL to FCO flights...With default departure times the price was $2099 for direct, 1, and 2 stops. With experimentation I found the best times to set were 6PM and 12PM...With those settings the fares listed are $1666 direct, $852 1 stop, $800 2 stop. Even with these settings I needed to submit multiple times to see all the flight option. When I called air2sea I was quoted the $2099 fare. I explained how I pulled up the other fare, and the agent did exactly what I did, including submitting multiple times to see the same rate. The rate was correct and I booked a $852 RT flight
