  1. We were booked on the 1st April Apex preview cruise from Southampton and knew that we would not be allowed to board with existing health conditions. However, we decided to wait until a week before the cruise before cancelling in the hope that Celebrity would join the other cruise lines and cancel all cruises for this period. And it worked out that way - even though we are still waiting for our refund to be processed. You made the choice to cancel early so it's hard to see how they could give you a complete refund now.

  2. Will be interesting to know where she is heading. Captain Laakkonen posted this from the Sky Princess Piazza on the last disembarkation day 😞
  3. There was an announcement that all Fincantieri shipyards will be suspending production from Monday 16th March for 2 weeks. May not affect the plans for Enchanted Princess as it stands but something to monitor. We have just cancelled our Enchanted 19th June preview cruise booking (from Rome) and will hope to book later.

  4. Although one Aussie couple on board apparently got some wine delivered by drone! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7981025/Gold-Coast-couple-quarantined-Diamond-Princess-Cruise-Ship-wine-delivered-drone.html
  5. The early reports from David Abel said that alchohol had been banned.
  6. Posted these on the other press release thread: From Harry Kemble on the shipyard visit to Apex today: The bi-fold doors have been ‘frosted’ and the furniture size has been reduced in the Infinite Veranda cabins "The one thing that we needed after Edge was a little more sun and wind protection in the Rooftop Garden Grill,” says LLP “We are going back and doing the same thing on Edge."

  7. And a couple of pics from the shipyard visit today (via Harry Kemble) The bi-fold doors have been ‘frosted’ and the furniture size has been reduced in the Infinite Veranda cabins “The one thing that we needed after Edge was a little more sun and wind protection in the Rooftop Garden Grill, we are going back and doing the same thing on Edge."
  8. Here's what I managed to grab (food only) Sandra
  9. Loving the details ! We are addicted to new ships too (5 maiden cruises from the 3 different lines in recent years) but have a great love for Sapphire Princess as she was our first - interested to find out what you think!
  10. Yes I have always ordered the Tarantina without the mussels and capers on all 4 Royal Class ships without any problems. Reminds me of a pizza I used to eat as a student - heaven! You don't get many pizzas with shrimp over here in the UK 🙂 Sandra
  11. Yes, they have the pasta dishes: And the calzone and desserts: And the appetizers: Sandra
  12. That's the crew's pool - I recall seeing them relaxing in it from our forward facing suite window. Hence not on the plans. Sandra
  13. The CD held a couple of crowd trivia sessions in the Piazza on the Sky Princess Med Inaugural where you got thrown a Stanley Bear to hold and had to answer 5 of his trivia questions in a row to win a prize. Lots of shouting and sharing of answers but good fun. This was alongside standard trivia though. Sandra
  14. Also, if dining at a specialty dining venue, a large bottle of water (one liter) of still or sparkling is now covered by the package. We made good use of this on our Sky Inaugural. Sandra
