  1. It is interesting to read how others have reacted to this same situation. i think that the FCC route is only helpful if you are sure that you will be going on a future Princess cruise - or it is available on other cruise brands as well?
  2. Thank you to everyone for your very helpful replies. we have booked F311 and are very much looking forward to it. Hopefully in 17 months time the cruising world will be up and running again. What happened on the Grand on its ‘infamous’ February 2020 sailing?
  3. I had this problem with regard to our September 5th sailing to St Peterberg. we booked with a TA so the due date for the final balance was coming up soon. we decided to shift the whole thing to a year later. We now leave on September 4th 2021, hopefully. Having made this amendment nearly all of the cost is is deferred until May 2021. Hopefully our story may be helpful to others. Be very wary about paying final balance, we’d say,
  4. Sounds like these are great cabins if you're not bothered about having a balcony. The suite privilege are qwell worth having obviously. Is the thermal suite one included on the Grand or not?
  5. Yes the TA wanted us to pay the full balance for our September 2020 cruise in order to be able to move it to a year later! The balance was due in May 2020. Now of course our final balance date is May 2021. I am happy to have kept my money in the bank.
  6. We have just come off a Celebrity Cruise where we had a superb extremely large ocean view cabin. We didn't actually miss the balcony and we preferred having the extra Space. Having just had this experience I happened to stumble on the 'Window suites' on Grand Princess. They are on deck 7 adjacent to the Casino. I guess they have been added fairly recently. Has anyone come across these cabins or even had one? We were offered F301 but didn't like the look of that one on the plan (near toilets, lifts etc). Do they come with all the suite privileges?
  7. We booked with a TA. If we hadn't rebooked another cruise then they expected us to pay up the full balance now for our cruise in September. This way we have deferred the full payment until May 2021. Disappointed to lose out on our good deal (and our OBC) but we are happy to have opted out of September 2020 without costing us a penny until May 2021. Who knows what the climate for cruising may be then There might even be a shortage of supply as cruisers take back to the water!?
  8. We have decided to amend our September 2020 cruise until September 2021. Our final balance was due in May and it seemed better to avoid paying this. Our only disadvantage is that we have lost our special deal price for 2020 and the OBC we received. Overall we are happy. What do others plan to do in similar circumstances?
  9. Kinda strange as Cunard has them!
  10. Are there any of these on Constellation? Do any Celebrity ships have any?
  11. The basic service (so called value package) is £135 for one device for 15 days. i thought this was very expensive and not worth paying.
  12. I am new to Celebrity. is it worth buying a value-priced internet package before we depart ?. Or do they have offers just as good or better as soon as you board? I have been quoted about $100 for a 15-night cruise. Is this worth taking? Is the quality of the internet similar to ,say, Princess ships?
  13. I am new to Celebrity. What ‘proper coffee’ is available, where do you get it, and what is the cost? Also are kettles available in the cabins? We are on Constellation in a couple of weeks time.
