  1. Hi, We are flying with Jet Blue and have a 5 hour layover at JFK 5:20 am to 10:20 am. My ticket says terminal 5. When I look up all the lounges at JFK they are not in terminal 5. Can we still have access to any of the lounges? Thanks
  2. I recently got an AMEX Platinum card and one of the perks is to get OBC for cruises. For a balcony on Celebrity you can get 200 OBC. I tried to apply this for a cruise and my TA and Celebrity said this OBC perk is not combinable when having OBC from booking the cruise onboard. Can anyone confirm this is true?
  3. Hi, I got my Amex Platinum card. I had 2 future reservations with Celebrity and wanted to see if I could use my new card to pay the deposit and credit the original credit card so I could take advantage of 200 OBC for having a balcony. Surprisingly my TA said I could do this. Then she called me back and said the OBC from AMEX card is not combinable with the OBC from booking a cruise onboard. So for my 2nd cruise where I only had 150 OBC from booking onboard I could forfeit the 150 and get the 200. Is this correct that they are not combinable? Also, I bought 50 Delta gift card. I'll let you know if I get a credit. Thanks
  4. I should be receiving my card by Thursday. I was hoping to get the airline credit by purchasing 4 delta 50 e-gift cards. But I have read that this is not working any longer. Little disappointed because I don’t really think I’ll use this 200. I could use it to get my husband in the Delta lounge as a guest since we always fly out of DTW but also considered getting the 3 extra cards for 175 so my hubby and kids could get benefits especially the credit for Global Entry program. Has anyone tried the Delta gift cards this year and been successful in get the credit?
  5. Thank you for the link. I didn't realize we'd have to pay the 29 at the DL Lounge for my husband. I'm thinking of getting the additional cards at the extra cost. Then my husband could get the Global Entry fee paid and get access to the DL lounge. I have to determine if this card is worth it. It seems to have a lot of perks and I've seen articles and posts in cruise critic where people say they more than make up for the fee with all of the perks.
  6. Both me and my husband have the Delta Amex Platinum that we pay 195 pp per year and basically get a companion ticket and 1st checked bag free. I think we will cancel these 2 cards since I just got the American Express Platinum Charge card. I will be getting the American Express Platinum Charge in 2-3 days. I didn't sign up for the 3 additional card members but I think I should go ahead and pay the extra for my husband so he is able to get the 100 off the Global Entry fee and also entry to Delta Sky Lounge. We usually fly with Delta and I didn't realize I'd have to pay a guest fee for him at Delta Sky Lounge. We are going on our 1st Europe Cruise end of Sept and will be flying from DTW to Barcelona with a layover in Amsterdam. Thanks for your feedback.
  7. I have recently signed up for the Amex Platinum card. We are flying on Delta from Detroit to Amsterdam to Barcelona. We have a 4 hour layover in Amsterdam and it's KLM from Amsterdam to Barcelona. I think in Detroit we can access the Delta Lounge with my husband as a guest. Will we have any access to any lounges in Amsterdam with the Amex Platinum card? Appreciate your feedback.
  8. We have booked our first time with MSC for Aug 2020 on Seaside. How did you qualify for this code? Maybe there will be one available before my cruise.
  9. We just put a deposit down for Aug 29 2020 on Seaside in Royal Suite. Total for 2 is 7222 and we'll get 200 OBC and 5% off from TA. Is this good deal? We have sailed on NCL Aft Haven but we won a bid and paid about 6K. We have not sailed with MSC but have read quite a few good reviews.
  10. I asked Celebrity excursion department for the itinerary for Celebrity Discovery Collection: Best of Mykonos - 8 hours 15 min. It's interesting to see how you spend the 8 hours and 15 min. It's a lot of travel time. I guess the sailing back and forth to Delos could be fun. I wonder if 30 minutes to Mera Village to visit the Monastery is worth the drive. I'm either going to take this excursion or the shorter excursion to Delos which would leave me the afternoon to explore on my own. But the price difference between the 2 excursions is 30 and this longer one include lunch and show. I'd love feedback from someone that has taken this excursion. Thanks

  12. I can call Celebrity but I think they will offer transfers because the flight was booked thru Choice Air (Celebrity). But I wonder if a cab is faster since I don't need to wait for a van to be filled.
  13. Hi, I had a prior post trying to decide which flight home I should take and appreciated everyone's feedback. We were able to get our flight changed to leave Barcelona at 11:05 AM and arrive in DTW at 6:22 PM with 1 h 50 min layover in Amsterdam. 1st Flight is KLM and 2nd is Delta. Our cruise is scheduled to arrive in Barcelona at 6:00 am. I have a couple of questions. Is it worth getting transfers from the cruise or should we just take a cab? Should we disembark where we take our own luggage? Thanks
  14. Hi, The email address for the excursion inquiry department is shorex@rccl.com. They take 2-3 days to respond to questions. Thanks
