  1. Thank you! Not the point or intention of my post, but very kindly received ...feeling the love from my beloved USA. Well your corner of her! lol THANK YOU πŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
  2. Sorted. Just cancelled ...it's the easiest way, though very sad! The Β£100 per passenger admin fee cancels out carrying over the deposit to another sailing ...it's like buying your Β£300 (in our case) for Β£300!! Plus the bit I had not grasped is that within a 'cruise move' the balance is still up on the original due date! Useless if financing was the reason to seek the move and if you took the move right up to the 365 day maximum, you're paying your balance over a year early! Madness lol
  3. Morning, I trust you are well ...yes through here, another call, Tim & Andy from Facebook and other research it is as stated! Thank you. It's a dilemma just about math now. Think changing anything is a risk in any sector and unlikely to be free but I think the Β£100 per passenger Admin fee is OTT.
  4. That may be the route I take as even writing off Β£300 I think I can re-book cheaper and certainly once the Β£300 Admin fees are added.
  5. Hello cruisers ...not been around lately as down on my luck. That's an understatement if ever there was one, I'm expecting to contact this Corona virus by the time I cease typing this! Anyway this is not the Samaritans or help a friend ...unless it's sound MSC advise one needs. Looking like I'm going to need to 'cancel' Grandiosa at Easter and once the shock settled in last week I thought about what I 'knew', principally that rather than cancel and lose deposits you can transfer your deposits to a new sailing and feel much better about yourself! Well maybe so, but not as easily, freely or without cost as I thought! MSC UK are saying I can before the balance due date on the 7th February providing.... 1. The sailing is in the same region only 2. From the same port 3. Returning to the same port 4. The cost is the same or greater 5. Within 365 days of original sailing date 6. Admin fee of Β£100.00 per passenger Is this correct? I'm sure others reported differently over the years. Bear in mind there will be 9 weeks to re-sell the Grandiosa cabin and extras. They will not be out of pocket as the deposits stay with them and a balance is merely further out of being paid. Any advise or experience particularly is valued at this time. Cheers gang and I trust the high seas are treating you well. Frank
  6. Bea it was amazing....All that was missing was some days at sea and more drinking! Saw Meraviglia twice in Boston and NYC and she looked majestic. Halloween in Salem was special and something to be glad you have ticked off. Knowing both NYC and to a lesser extent Boston, the real star was Connecticut, a state we will revisit for sure! Getting your thread back on track ...I followed your story all the way πŸ˜›
  7. That's that sorted then ...next florida themed day, forget Kermits 🐸 it's all round to Bea's for a cruise critics gathering with the BEST key lime pie in the world. DO NOT MISS OUT ...invites to follow πŸŽ‰πŸŽ€πŸŽ·
  8. Seaside class overload in the western med!!!!!!!!
  9. That's the only reason and frustration plus disappointment to one side ...who wants to visit something that is less than its goal and eventual best! I'm sure once father time has allowed the location will be every bit all that it promised.
  10. I repeat, with no disrespect or pain to anyone ...Did you really expect it to open on time, or even the early revised times? This stuff just never works and it won't open on 5th December either! To be advised is disappointing, but to be told in advance over being on board is to be respected.
  11. Agreed. And this region should be avoided too in November ...unless you are not going to moan about the weather after the event!
  12. Been following on FB too this morning whilst travelling! It's not ideal and I get the frustration, but some of them slating MSC got my goat and I couldn't hold back! It's the weather, you can't buy it, change it or communicate with It! Safety must come first Massive new investment by the line that to date has generated no revenue But you're talking about a sailing from a UK container port (still don't understand why lines use UK ports) in November with two days sailing in notorious waters even in Summer! Why not be expecting the worse, why book flights home the dame day! It's opinionated but I think some took a punt on a cheap sailing to discover a new ship and now want glitz glamour and A-Grade weather to complete the picture. Why sail in mid-November from Southampton 😠
