  1. Us too for Jan 2021..but will not be not surprised if cancelled
  2. Suggest a lift and shift for a later date, If that is not possible, why invest more money for a likely "no go" . Close to home is the key these days!
  3. What are the required milestones that must be achieved for countries to no longer be banned? What happens if an EU country jumps back up with cases? Any thoughts if distant travel for us are out for now...but we eventually wanted to do a TA on QM 2 with trvl in Europe..,,and then a TA back... Hopes are now dashed!
  4. Treating any customer like this is UNCONSCIONABLE! What was the basis of Xs claim they did not owe you a refund?? Did they include details of why there was a penalty assessed and only a small fcc issued. .,How can they assess any penalty if they cancelled! Have you escalated with Celebrity through office of LLP? Gives the rest of us something to consider in the event we have to deal with this... Seems that once the Card dispute is filed, the Cruise lines capitulates,,,
  5. As always..good thoughts! Hopefully , the advisors decision makers have cruised a few times and not as VIPs!
  6. Perhaps true while on board...but cruisers will return to land and disperse. Wonder if there will be a post cruise quarantine required? Probably most who sign up live a "driveable" distance from the port of________.(?) But anyone desperate to cruise any which way might even fly.! No details in the LLP letter so it all remains to be seen!
  7. And many others did,,, Your experience was not our exprience, We loved EDGE..one week in AQ Class in an Infinite Veranda was too short! We appreciated most aspects of the Veranda sunroom and had no complaints, AQUA class Included dinig in BLU, and Acces to Thermal suite which Included heated loungers and the Relaxation room. Add on spa services were outstanding, (gym was okay but did not blow us away,,,) We also did the 9 /10 days to ABC Islands in a Sunset Veranda...with the 4 mdr plan, Stateroom is oversized with a huge outdoor aft balcony. Food and service were excellent. Loved the Solarium! The shows, music and art collection were amazing...yes, there a few negs ( did not like the teminal ) but overall a very pleasant updated cruise experience! We will be excited to try APEX in 2021.. but.not sure if we will go BEYOND, as we want to try Viking after APEX...looks like a good fit for our taste and cruise reqirements.
  8. We also received the LLP e mail... Hope this new blue ribbon advisory panel is better than the Women's Design panel of a few yrs ago.....many of whom apparently never set foot on a cruise ship. We are not looking for a solitary, antiseptic, masked cruise experience...but we'll see what they come up with!
  9. How countries ( and cruises to or from their ports) fare, depends on individual behavior...Govs and other entities can only do so much to solve this , unless they have full control like Korea.....perish the thought! Being cooped up for months with or without any income or meaningful socialization takes a big toll on some more than others. Some simply are in denial or do not believe in the seriousness of it all,., Many seem too quick to judge others...but may not know their situation. Others are plain out selfish...no excuses! When the number of cases recede things will open up...but it may not be as soon ss some would prefer. Eventually it will work itself out...
  10. Sometimes it's not the user or their equioment, cookies or browser. You can contact Jenn at CC Help or post on the CC help thread. A solution usually comes through.
  11. We also cancelled a Nov 2020 cruise on APEX ..refund of our deposit was slow but is now done . We added a 5 day cruise on her for Nov 2021 ( getting my yrs confused but that seems right?). It's shorter than our orig choice but we reserved a Sky Suite so we could experience Luminae and the Retreat. Hope the APEX art collection is awesome! We enjoyed AQ Class on EDGE ( Blu and Thermal suite) and a Sunset Veranda with the 4 mdr plan.. ...so this will be a new experience for us! Hope to see some Celebrity regulars on board!,
  12. Thanks..i know that one..did not know the name or purpose,
  13. Hope they arrive safe and healthy! Quite an adventure they have had...
  14. Note to self.. pack a wash cloth and use it as a cold water compress on head and wrists in restrm before boarding. Or run cold water over wrists. Drink an icy slushy. I run cold but just in case..... Can someone explain the pulse oximetry reading,?????
