  1. Hey, here’s a way to think about it. At least 8 members found this thread a worthwhile read. You don’t. So don’t read it!
  2. You’re working with a travel agent. You don’t get to curate your cruise activity on a website. You made that choice when you decided to let someone else book it for you. Now you will have to go to your agent for everything. Let’s hope something doesn’t have a rub on your cruise on a Sunday and your agent just decides to take the day off.
  3. Yes, agreed it's not optimal. All of the relevant information is on your confirmation PDF that they sent you when you booked. Hopefully you have that stored in a safe place. That will contain pretty much everything relevant: Booking number, passengers names etc, cabin placement, embarkation and disembarkation, ports of call with dates, cabin dimensions, experience level, all charges contemporary to the date of booking, as well as important information on cancellations, etc. So even if the website went down completely you can always refer to that document. Anything done since booking, p
  4. Oh yeah, that's a good policy. Because cancellations are much more important to individuals of high net wealth than to ordinary schmucks like me.
  5. Live and learn. That's the purpose of traveling to countries other than my own, to expose myself to those kinds of cultural differences. That doesn't mean I'm going to just abandon my culture because I'm not sure. If it's really important, the cruise line will tell you. For example "shorts and exposed shoulders are not appropriate on this excursion."
  6. This was, in general, the story Jules was talking about. https://www.nbcnews.com/business/business-news/more-people-are-flying-so-why-are-airlines-slashing-flights-n1271623
  7. Don’t sign in using you username. Use the option on the left, booking number then first and last name.
  8. First time MSC Customer. I don't expect you to know that, or care. I wasn't putting it out there as though I was breaking news. I was just saying I was surprised by it. But thanks for finding something negative to pore over. I'm glad my comment found some use for you. Time to learn that "also not new" ignore feature I guess.
  9. I just noticed: Not only does MSC not REQUIRE tipping of individual crew and staff ... they refer to it as "not recommended." That's a little different than just a casual statement of un-enforcement. "During your cruise, you will meet staff throughout the ship who provide you with excellent service. They are supported by just as many staff and crew who work hard behind the scenes to ensure you enjoy every moment on board. For your convenience, MSC Cruises will automatically add a daily Hotel Service Charge to your shipboard account, based on your chosen itinerary and the number
  10. And now ... you are not. That is a fact. But if you log in with your boarding number as has been suggested by two other people, you will find the information that is currently available to your account based on your embarkation date.
  11. Ok. Have fun not accepting facts. I hope you find what you're looking for.
  12. I gotta believe the airlines are getting hit just as hard as the cruise lines by last year's covid racka-racka. Hopefully this quirk in the booking process is temporary. I'm somebody who baby sits my bookings on, pretty much, a daily basis. So I feel confident I would see a change at least within a day or two. But you're right ... finding out this way that your flight activity is now as vulnerable and in some respects as potentially unreliable as the pandemic has made the cruise industry is disturbing.
  13. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new Covid Discussions policy. Thank you Cruise Critic. Brilliantly executed.
  14. This is the resolution. There is no other resolution. You will not be able to log in using a username and password at least until you are closer to embarkation. This is normal for you to only be able to see your cruise info using the Booking Number method of logging in.
