  1. Are your teens under the age of 18? I have 2 grandkids on a cruise... one is 17 and one 5 years old. Are they really issuing FCC to minors and little ones? Neither of them can book a cruise themselves of course. Why shouldn't the person who paid their fare receive the FCC in their name (even if there are no bonus discounts)? That certainly does not seem fair. Maybe getting a total cash / credit card refund is a better option for us?
  2. We have a scheduled CAS cruise to Bermuda for 04/17-04/24 that I am pretty confident will be cancelled. Do I still need to contact the CAS staff or will the refunds +/or FCCs just be issued automatically? I hate to clog up the phones if the refund process is automatic. Thanks in advance.
  3. The breakfast was incredible. Not only did they serve more traditional European fare (meats, cheese, breads, etc.) they also offered more traditional American items like cereal, eggs, French toast, etc, rotating on different mornings. If you didn't like any of their offerings, the bakery only steps away had plenty of pastries to choose from as did the corner café directly out the front door of the hotel.
  4. I loved staying at the Hotel Smeraldo when in Rome a few years ago. They recently completed a complete re-do of their rooms. The locations is wonderful with a short walk to Campa di Fiori and Piazza Navona. We walked to the Pantheon and Trevi fountain and to so many churches close by along with so many restaurants. We had a room overlooking a tiny side street with a window that we could open. The smell of the bakery down below as the breads and other pastries were baking in the pre-dawn hours was one of my favorite things! The location is also very near to a central bus and other transportation. We will be back in Rome in the beginning of November this year and I am definitely looking to stay there or use an Airbnb in the same area. https://www.smeraldoroma.com/en/
  5. Thanks for that info. I forgot to mention my husband uses a CPAP and I'm wondering if that will also be okay on the adapter.
  6. First.... Yes, I have searched my questions in the Ports of Call section. When in Rome several years ago for 2 days, the I had an adapter and then plugged the iPhone plug into it. The plug part got quite hot so I removed them from charging. I had to wait until I got on board the ship to finally charge it. I'm looking for information from those of you who have stayed in Rome before or after your cruise in the past few years. We will be staying in Rome 1 day pre-cruise and 4 days post cruise this Fall. As we all know, technology is constantly changing. I am looking for your advice and reccomendations on what types of iPhone / iPad / power bank charging devices you have used that are best in the areas of protection, appropriate voltage, are easy to use and possibly with multiple USB ports. Should I just buy an Italian iPhone power plug I found on Amazon that includes Italy in the description? Will that be compatible with my devices as far as voltage or do I still face any power surge issues? Am I safe in buying a Universal Travel Adapter (says USA to Most of Europe)? If you have a specific item you have used and trusted, please let me know about it. Thank you for any helpful insight.
  7. Just found that out so thanks for that information. If you look in post #2 in my reply to someone pointing that out I replied with the post in plain text. Hopefully you can see my post there. Thanks!

  10. I'm so looking forward to cruising along with you & Sue for this special Transatlantic voyage on the Encore! Your schedule looks packed full with CC events. Congrats on your Haven upgrade!! So wish we had been able to be on board but.... Bon Voyage to you and the rest of the CC group!
  11. Submitted the documentation via email on October 21st.
  12. Thought I'd provide some follow-up. We received an email notice from the Shareholder Benefit Team 10 days after submitting our paperwork to receive an OBC. I am pleased to report that we received $100.00 as a shareholder for an 11 day cruise that was booked through the CAS department. Thank you all once again for your input and great information. Judy
  13. So it’s been 4 days since I sent my Shareholder paperwork and have heard nothing and nothing appears on my eDocs or Summary. After reading the the many posts here, I see comments about my anticipated $100 OBC benefit had further stipulations. We are booked through CAS so have a discounted cabin rate. If I am denied any OBC due to my booking , will they notify my that I am ineligible? Is there a phone number to call or is email my only option of communication? We we will be 2 weeks out from our cruise date as of Monday. Thanks for any fury thoughts on this.
  14. Thank you for your response. It’s exactly what I was looking for. I did get the reply. I cruise in 3.5 weeks so hopefully they clearly see the date and make it happen. 😁
