  1. I did it with a Royal cruise. Booked one for Sept. 20 and did the L&S for Sept. 21.
  2. Someone posted it here on the X board. That's how I found out about it.
  3. Just because there is no word from the CDC, doesn't mean that they're not working with the cruise lines as we speak. This is probably going to take quite some time. RCI wasn't exactly open at first with the guidelines the CDC put in place to send the crew home. The CDC also has to hear and work with the cruise line and vice versa before a plan is put in place. It's not as cut and dry as it may seem that the CDC just puts out a plan, and the cruise line follows it. I wish it was, but we are dealing with unprecedented times here.
  4. I agree completely with what you're saying, but we all know the reason why X waits until after final payment. They want our dollars. I know it's business but it's disgraceful. You do the right thing even if you're a huge for-profit corporation. NCL's President even said it will be probably 5-6 months until the fall when they sail again. Even Carnival has been stating recently that their attempt to startup Aug 1 is in doubt. I'm really starting to dislike X and their tactics. I have been for awhile but this just puts it front and center now.
  5. It is confusing. Like you said, you lose the 25% if you keep the same sailing, so you're basically keeping the same price so I would rather L&S than have a FCC. It says you can retain the promo, but doesn't specifically say you can keep perks or obc. The word promo is very vague. Another advantage to the L&S. Thinking of all these different scenarios just makes my head spin.
  6. I'll just call back another time and see what happens. I do have until Aug. 1. Hopefully the 3rd time will be the charm.
  7. It is an excluded category, but I have never had a problem calling and receiving it. I've booked onboard and called when I've come home and received the C2. Booking onboard is the only time I've been told "no" but I've called afterwards like I stated and have received it. I've also called after booking a C1 online and received the C2. I could call the next time you book a C1.
  8. I Right, but I am in a C2 but at the C3 rate. We are Elite, but any CC member with a sailing can get the one category upgrade.
  9. I would not wait until Celebrity cancels. If they do, you can not lift & shift with price protection. When they cancel, your only option is a refund or the FCC unless that it ok with you. If you cancel your cruise planner reservations, your're OBC will be back to $500. I have never made air reservations so I have no knowledge on that.
  10. Can you L&S successfully to a qualified sailing but a different category? I was talking with someone in resolutions who was processing the reservation. He said I would keep my 4 perks and $700OBC but just pay the different between the C2 and C1. The call dropped while I was waiting for the price. I called back but another rep said that was not possible. I would have to make a new reservation at prevailing rates if I switched categories and even lose my OBC for booking onboard which I know is false. That OBC carries over. We are currently booked on an SClass switching to MClass. I prefer the C1 on M as opposed to a C2 in S. It seems like no one knows what to do. I had this problem with a RC L&S but that eventually worked after I had to call back and speak with a different person. That L&S was even for the same itinerary, dates, cabin type and ship etc. This whole CWC is irritating and stressing. I should add I've already done a successful L&S with Celebrity with no problem with same ship, itinerary, category and following date.
  11. Do you have to be 55 when you book or when you sail to qualify?
  12. Not for us either. But, if you put your numbers in where you enter your passenger info and go all the way to the end to payment, you can see the rate. Time consuming but it works.
  13. It has hit the mainstream already. The Miami Herald has a story on it.
  14. Finally. It worked. I was able to switch. It took some pushing. They had it in the notes that I originally spoke with someone from resolutions and it wasn’t good on new reservations. It worked out well that I waited since I was able to take advantage of a price drop at a lower rate that I shifted to. Hello Symphony in 2021.
