  1. So why have I posted this on the Celebrity board? Hurtigruten are not one of the big 3 cruise companies but with 16 ships they are NOT a small player either. The point is 14 of their ships will be back in service at the start of September. Visiting only home nations (depart Norway going round Norway / Depart UK going round UK) and almost exclusively for locals (called drive to passengers) It makes a lot of sense and results in automatic reduced capacity due to travel restrictions. It appears an ideal way to get started. It's getting to the point where Celebrity must be contemplation no restart until Spring 2021 but this would give them a start up option. I've said for some time that Apex will be the first ship back running a late summer season out of Southampton. My full restart guess!!!!!! Apex - Staying in Europe - starts FULL program in Spring 2021 - Does some of Silhouette Fall cruises out of Southampton starting late September Constellation - Cold layup in Med - Starts Europe program Spring 2021 - Or sold!! Infinity - Cold layup in Med - Starts Europe program Spring 2021 - Or sold!! Edge - First ship to restart in Caribbean - Will do the Infinity short duration cruises Winter Season Equinox - Will restart Late 2020/Early 2021 on planned itinerary as longer cruises become acceptable Solstice - Will cover either her Australia Winter 2020/Spring 2021 cruises or Cover Millennium Asia cruises depending on demand and flight availability Millennium - Cold layup - restart Alaska season 2021 Eclipse - Cold layup - restart Alaska season 2021 Summit - Cold layup - restart North East Season Summer 2021 Reflection - Cold Layup - restart dependent on demand But could be Europe 2021 Silhouette - Europe 2020 and South America 2021/2021 cancelled - New short Caribbean cruises introduced starting Early 2021
  2. This is the most encouraging piece of news I’ve seen to date. I don’t know anything about ship operations or hotel admin, but I know that everyone else on that list is a fairly heavy hitter in the scientific/epidemiology world, and they even included a pathology person as one of the MDs! There are some people with CDC inside ties and HHS connections - I know for many people that brings up conspiracy ideas and quid pro quo, but it is also true that if you don’t speak the language of HHS and CDC, your plan isn’t going to get very far. As for Carnival, whether they truly were less compliant or not, their corporation is the face of the cruise ship pandemic, and it may be that through CLIA, they chose to stick to the international scientific summit (which may be where this working group gets a lot of the scientific legwork done in a single document), in an attempt to avoid controversy. As for the navy, the military always has something to offer in any logistics discussion, but I would think that it would more apply to crew than anything else on a passenger vessel. I read this as CDC kinda saying, “we don’t have time or manpower to deal with you people, you need to present us with a plan, but it better pass muster with a lot of infectious dz and epidemiology experts or you’re wasting your time”.
  3. I use add blocker plus on my laptop with no issues. BTW, we were in Chalottetown P.E.I last September on the Summit.We really enjoyed our visit.
  4. This WTTC and Carnival Corporation Present COVID-19 Scientific Summit could have something to do with it for now.
  5. I've made my view clear on Apex a number of times and with Europe starting (fingers cross) to get this thing under control I'm still of a view that Europe will start up first. Interestingly these have been a number of comments to imply that the ships are now in their start up positions. It seems logical to me that Apex, Constellation, infinity will ultimately stay in Europe and probably restart FULL cruising at the start of the 2021 Europe season on the Spring. That's not to say that, if things improve, they will not do some of the 2020 late Summer cruises but given the problems with getting Americans over, only thing Southampton could justify a restart this fall. The UK currently does not ban Americans but does require a quarantine. Critical however is the number of local passengers and Southampton has more "drive to" passengers than any other Europe port. Hence I think Apex might do some of the Southampton Silhouette late Summer sailings. Over the pond things don't look good. Short cruises will. in my opinion, be the order of the day. So the infinity fall programme is likely to be the first to start. But it would be a waste of money to bring her over from the med so my guess is the the these will be on Edge!! So hear goes Apex - Staying in Europe - starts FULL program in Spring 2021 - Does some of Silhouette Fall cruises out of Southampton starting late September Constellation - Cold layup in Med - Starts Europe program Spring 2021 - Or sold!! Infinity - Cold layup in Med - Starts Europe program Spring 2021 - Or sold!! Edge - First ship to restart in Caribbean - Will do the Infinity short duration Winter Season Equinox - Will restart Late 2020/Early 2021 on planned itinerary as longer cruises become acceptable Solstice - Will cover either her Asia Winter 2020/Spring 2021 cruises or Eclipse Australia dependent on demand and flight availability Millennium - Cold layup - restart Alaska season 2021 Eclipse - Cold layup - restart Alaska season 2021 Summit - Cold layup - restart North East Season Summer 2021 Reflection - Cold Layup - restart dependent on demand But could be Europe 2021 Silhouette - Europe 2020 and South America 2021/2021 cancelled - New short Caribbean cruises introduced starting Early 2021 Anyone agree!!
  6. I'm hearing rumors of a solstice class ship replacing summit in summer 2020. Anyone know of anything? Sent from my SM-G960U using Forums mobile app
  7. Thanks so much for your great comments about the penthouse suites. We normally don't spend a lot of time around the ship, at the pool, casino, shopping, etc. so this sounds like exactly what we are hoping for. Not to mention it should be a great place for a sail away gathering. Just curious if you've ever hosted a sail away for folks who would like to see a penthouse in life? Also, I don't know if you do any face booking but if you do I have created a group called Celebrity Penthouse Sailors, should you care to join. With your experience I'm sure you can give great advice for us first timers! Yes, it will be hard to go back down a level or two, I'm sure. We have an S1 (7307) on Solstice just a month before our PH on Summit, so it will good to compare and help us realize how fortunate we are. We normally dine at Luminae most evenings, but I am thinking about 'in suite' for a night or two since Murano is not available on Summit. Can the butler actually make it nearly the same experience in quality of food?
  8. My wife and I have recently returned from the 14-day New England/Canada cruise aboard the “revolutionized” Summit that departed Cape Liberty on September 8, 2019. This was our fifth cruise on Celebrity, and our second on an M-class ship. We sailed on the Infinity back in 2013, and she was fairly worn and in need of updating back then, so we were very much looking forward to seeing what the “revolution” had brought to the Summit. In the posts that follow, I will give my thoughts about the ship (including food, dining, entertainment, etc.), as well as the itinerary, and of course I’ll be happy to answer any questions that I can. (the Summit anchored in Bar Harbor, by turtles06)
  9. The title says it all. What did Celebrity do with the Normandie memorabilia that used to be placed at the entrance of the Normandie restaurant (original wall panel, etc) and the Normandie statue in the MDR? Thanks
  10. We were on Summit in Hawaii after that experiment was over. My exact reaction: Rags hanging from the ceiling, dirty beds and sea views blocked. The whole lounge ambiance was ruined. I wonder if the Eden show will be premiered on Apex also. Such a happy difference was on Silhouette's Sky Lounge on our last trip. We were up there every evening for pre-dinner drinks on a 15 day cruise.
  11. By chance, does anyone know where the window washing platform is located on deck 8? We’re considering a C2, 8046 and 8048. Back in 2015, the window washing platform was outside 8048, ruining the aft view for both of those cabins. Anyone have more up to date information?
  12. "Bar at the Edge of the Earth" was what it was called with the Cirque style show on the M class. The Sky Lounge was converted every night to this goofy venue where sheets were hung around the room, there were beds under all the windows. Really creepy characters costumed as vegetables and other indistinguishable beings. Really was hilarious although it wasn't supposed to be. We were drinking in Michael's (pre-suite days) on the Summit.with the cast an hour or so after they got the email that they had been fired. They hated to lose the gig (obviously) but seemed relieved that they were getting out of the show. We really didn't like it at all and when we saw something similar on the Edge Class we said, "um, no way."
  13. Horizon! It was our second cruise in 1994 with Zenith being the first. Amazing how impressed we were with those 40K Ton ships. Followed those with Century and Summit, each better than the last. We have never sailed on an Oasis class ship although we were very happy with Vision of the Seas for two European trips. Hence, the aborted plan for Symphony which we planned for a time where there wouldn't be many children. The only way we would go on Edge is if we could score a sunset veranda and then only for a week. I have to say that the "show" in Eden is not a new idea. This was tried back in the 90's with Cirque du Soleil on the Century class ships and only lasted a year due to severe lack of enthusiasm by the passengers. Although the Cirque shows in the theater were pretty good. My cousin sailed Edge when it first premiered with her hubby's siblings in an ocean view room but according to them, they never went beyond the Martini bar and the dining room. Had no idea what the Magic Carpet was when I asked about it and they never saw any shows. So they were no help in evaluating the ship.
  14. We are 90% Princess cruisers and like the Atrium as a 'hub' on their ships. We enjoyed one cruise on Celebrity Reflection but felt common areas were a little chopped up. Looking at a cruise on Celebrity Summit - layout looks different on their site, Is Summit a different class from Reflection ?
  15. Seems that the Summit has been chartered for the 13 Feb 2021 cruise. LGBT cruise company is taking over the whole ship. Second time we've been bumped from Summit. Anyone know what the latest offer for a NONVOLUNTARY bump is? Thanks, g3
  16. We have cruised for a few years now, but only just last year visited the Caribbean for the first time for a week’s cruise out of Barbados as part of a TA back to Southampton. My husband took a while to persuade, as we aren’t really ‘beach people’, and kept hearing that it was quite risky on some islands to go off exploring. We loved it. Our favourite was Grenada, but we really can’t wait to go back and see some more islands and include a proper resort stay. Any recommendations? We met such lovely people everywhere, and the sunsets were amazing. We have lost three much anticipated cruises this year, including Summit out of Boston in September , but have recently booked an island hopping cruise in Croatia next April with Azamara, as I need something to look forward to.
  17. Do some of our knowledgeable Summit cruisers know who the new Captain other than Capt. Matt is ? Know one of my favorites Capt. Ioannis I believe is now on Millie.
  18. Well, the mystery of part of excursions I'd cancelled but not gotten the refund yet is solved. I cancelled them about 48 hours prior to X cancelling my Summit cruise. I didn't think I had any of them left on there, but wasn't sure how prepaid gratuities would work in terms of the 125% OBC for pre-cruise purchases - my TA said it would be refunded (still waiting ditto port fees/taxes). So I didn't fill out the form for 125% OBC. I guess last week I got an email reminding me about that option, so I figured 125% of 0 is 0 so might as well fill it out and IF the grats counted, I'd have some extra OBC for a future cruise. Today I got the OBC certificate via email for an amount that equals the things I'd cancelled from the Summit plus 25% (and 75 cents). So making lemonade out of lemons - and not wanting to deal with trying to prove I'd cancelled them BEFORE the day they cancelled the cruise - I'm applying it to my 50th birthday cruise so I can do some of the more expensive excursions I was looking at! Still a few outstanding excursions from other future cruises NOT cancelled I'm waiting on.
  19. Interesting. Which sailing next September? We are on 10 September 21 on Summit in 6148.
  20. At Grand Cayman on our 2nd cruise onboard the brand new Summit in 2001we were on our balcony enjoying the sailaway when we noticed a small motor boat heading towards the ship at full throttle.....closer and closer it came until it slid up next to us directly below our balcony and 2 people got up from the boat and were forced to jump from the boat to the ship with 2 X employees helping them make the jump...…...thankfully they appeared to be young & healthy so made the jump easily....I can't imagine having to do that.... but I bet the owner of the motor boat wound up with a good pay day that day.
  21. Well the mystery just gets deeper and deeper with everything going on with mine. On Thursday I had gotten my FCC for the cancelled 7/19 Summit cruise - even my TA was surprised I had gotten it already since I hadn't gotten the taxes/fees or prepaid gratuities back yet. Friday I got a OBC certificate for 125% of the excursions and one specialty meal - all of which I had cancelled before the cruise cancelled. Forwarded those onto my TA to apply to the respective cruises. (The OBC showed up in the one I wanted it applied to today.) I still had several outstanding excursions from other cruises I had cancelled well over a month ago - I had ONE show up refunded in my account but none of the others. So I decided to call today. I got a super nice agent on the phone and she looked first at the cancelled cruise and she said "How did you even get the FCC for that? I'm not even showing that it has processed!" I said "I don't know...I have the email..." She said that until it showed as cancelled in the system (it IS cancelled, but the way their system works) the refund on the taxes/fees and prepaid gratuities wouldn't happen. But she was completely flummoxed as to how I already had an FCC. So I'll let that one lie for a little while. We moved onto the excursions for other cruises I'd cancelled and she showed them locked in some kind of processing for long enough they looked stuck, so she got the information she needed and said she was going to manually push them through and she'll call me tomorrow to let me know where we are at that point. The weirdest thing is she was showing the one I thought had refunded as "processing" as well - I mean, it's possible I had something else for the same amount I had cancelled earlier and just don't remember. So yeah... It looks like I've got an FCC that shouldn't exist yet and a future OBC that shouldn't exist yet, but clearly do. Like I said, she was super sweet and as perplexed as I was. I think I won the award for weirdest situation she'd dealt with today. Haha! We'll see what tomorrow brings.
  22. Got an upcoming cruise with Celebrity and wondering where your vessel is just now? This will be an occasional update of where your cruise liner is docked or anchored until restrictions are lifted. Summer deployment should be APEX - still docked in St Nazaire awaiting her maiden voyage Europe CONSTELLATION - Akrotiri Bay, Cyprus Europe ECLIPSE - docked in San Diego, California Alaska EDGE - off CocoCay, Bahamas Europe EQUINOX - off CocoCay, Bahamas Caribbean INFINITY - off Tampa, Florida Europe MILLENIUM - anchored off San Diego, California Alaska REFLECTION - off CocoCay, Bahamas Europe SILHOUETTE - off CocoCay, Bahamas Europe SOLSTICE - off Bali, Indian Ocean Alaska SUMMIT - off Tampa, Florida Caribbean
  23. Are any of the beds in a standard balcony cabin on the Summit located near the veranda instead of the bathroom? I searched the spreadsheet but could not find one near the veranda. TIA
  24. Very small! Veranda is tiny. But convenient. These are the added cabins where salon used to be. Can see why downgraded to verandas.
  25. I am interested to find out more about the new Deck 10 Aquaclass cabins on Revolutionized M Class ships. Anything good or bad about the location? Could you open up between balconies? Was the hallway private or were there people wandering in from the public areas nearby?
