  1. We’ve been in Vista Suites on every deck and we really, really like the ones on Deck 12.
  2. We’ve done more than 35 cruises on X, all in suites(mostly the PH), and we left X and went over to O and never looked back——we’ve done 11 cruises on O in less than 6 years. We aren’t main dining room people and chose to dine at Muranos, or it’s equivalent, before X went to Luminae. We greatly disliked Luminae as the tables were far too close and the food not all that great. It says something when people dine at L but order their food from the MDR. We love the specialty restaurants on O and even like dinner in Terrace. And you don’t have to pay high suite prices to dine in every
  3. My condolences to everyone. Very sad to hear this.
  4. Looked at booking X for 2022 and saw that Summit, Constellation and Millennium don’t appear on any itinerary after October 2022, despite the fact that all the other ships are booking into 2023. Anyone have insight into this? We loved Summit’s itinerary to Bermuda.
  5. My TA, a high volume Crystal agent, just emailed me to start a credit card dispute for our Crystal refunds. I hope it isn’t too late to dispute the charges.
  6. If you are using supplemental oxygen or are undergoing kidney dialysis will no longer be welcomed on any Cunard ship. This information is from Cruise Weekly, a daily publication out of Australia. Personally, I don’t see how those two things are a part of the CDC’s rules for resuming cruises.
  7. They will charge you for every visit. Bring your own cuff.
  8. Look at the responses I got from a post I wrote a few days ago. You and I are in the same boat, so to speak, and the responses I got in my thread will also apply to your situation. We also had a cruise booked for Feb 2021, and we pretty much know it will be cancelled, so we refuse to give O any more money as far as a final payment is concerned, since O already owes us a FCC for the cruise they cancelled in March.
  9. I’ve been working with my TA on this, and he’s been working with Oceania. The suggestion is to cancel the Feb. 2021 cruise and put the down payment from that cruise onto our May 2022 Med cruise. So, that’s what we decided to do. But still, O will not say anything about what their plans are.
  10. Reading everything about the CDC rules for when cruising resumes, and I’m confused as to why Oceania is still selling cruises of 10 days or more in early 2021, when the rules state that no cruise can be longer than 7 days. We are booked on Riviera for a 22 day cruise in February, 2021, but we haven’t heard anything as to how this cruise is still happening and why it’s still open for reservations. I know we won’t be taking this cruise because I’m immuno-compromised, but should we cancel now or wait until O makes a decision? We already have a 5 figure FCC for cancelled cruises in March, 2020,
  11. Are European countries allowing B2B cruises? I had heard they don't allow it and only cruises of 7 days or less are allowed. Is that true? We were booked on Serenity for July 2021 for 14 days and my guess it will be cancelled.
  12. The voters in Key West voted to ban ships carrying more than 1300 passengers and they will limit the number of cruise passengers to 1500 per day. While this ban will not apply to lines like Oceania, Regent, Azamara, Crystal, Seabourn, Silversea and other boutique lines, it will impact those lines if more than two or three visit on the same day. Does anyone think this will hurt the bottom line in KW, or do they make enough from land vacations? In 2018, KW saw more than 1,000,000 cruise passengers
  13. Just be aware that if you use a power wheelchair that weighs more than 300lbs, American will not allow you to fly on their ERJ and CRJ aircraft. So, you either have to switch to a smaller chair or only fly their larger jets. That’s going to be difficult because many airports only have regional jets or they fly to popular destinations using only the small jets.
  14. You will dock at Kings Wharf and it’s a short ferry ride to Hamilton and their downtown area. The ferry is very accessible but the big thing is, a lot of Hamilton is not accessible. Most of the shops have steps to get inside and curb cut outs are not easily found and can be very steep. There is an accessible mall right at Kings Wharf, but watch for traffic. Those who rent the scooters there drive like demons.
  15. I know it’s early in the process to start up, but we’ve been wondering about a lot of things. Will the pools and hot tubs be closed? My guess is yes. How does one practice social distancing in elevators? Will they have staff on each floor in the elevator lobbies loading each car? Will the casinos be closed? What about Baristas? I can’t see the little snack buffet being open. Can’t play 8 person team trivia and socially distance at the same time. I guess what I’m saying is, I feel sorry for all those who will have to make tough decisions that they know will have a negative impact on th
