  1. Two hours after you but I just finally got my copy too! Was able to get into the booking site earlier today by signing in, decisions decisions!
  2. I haven’t seen the email either and I was hoping to book, grrrr
  3. Can only speak to the clamshells, yes if you want one in the front row you’ll need to be there early. Top of the clamshell had venting that allowed for airflow which was nice all the time protecting us from the sun. Because the side are mostly solid (except for vented section) we felt very private east to relax inside. We really like them and buy one every time we are in Labadee.
  4. I was on this sailing, first we were told they would be returning the port charges and when they hadn’t appear by the last day of the cruise I asked again as was told they weren’t going to return them. Reason given to us was that the overall port charges had increased since the cruise was released so missing a port did not create any excess to the cruise line to return back. While we are not happy with this I am not sure how much effort I am going to put into getting $20 back!
  5. Wow, while we would like the more direct flights at the price quoted online I really don’t have your perseverance. Good to know I am not alone and if I didn’t have another option I could perhaps come at this as you have. I will end up spending more per person but I will also be flying home in seats upgraded to business, that will help us feel better about the extra cost and travel time! Thanks for posting
  6. The flight system is very unfriendly to customers doing b2b repositioning cruises! I finally managed to get one reservation number to accept a multi city reservation that didn’t match the cruise routing but then it wouldn’t allow me to purchase it. I called the Flights by Celebrity 1-800# and after a half hour on the phone with them they could find my flights but couldn’t sell them for the amount on their website, their price was almost double. i tried to book them as two one ways but that price was ridiculous on one of the two legs. Celebrity rep said he would try again today and call me back first thing today, but surprise surprise he has not. Interestingly I can still pull up the flights on their website but today the price is $10 cheaper. Another frustrating call is in my future but I am not holding out much hope. Anyone else had this problem?
  7. We too are holding off booking a fall 2020 TA cruise, we have booked b2b on the Allure starting December 6th so would be open to whatever date she crosses, filling any in between time with some land time in Florida.
  8. We’ll weekend is now upon us and still no sign of pricing being released for this sailing. I am now starting to look at other options, not like there is any shortage of TA cruises that time of the year, just saying Celebrity get your act together!!!
  9. Looks like you have as many answers as people we ask. Fingers still crossed it will be released soon and worth the wait
  10. Still nothing 😖😖 Here is what I received from my travel agents district manager Yes, right now the sailing is closed. You may have heard, we are redeploying the Constellation from Dubai over to Tampa. Looks like there is sailing maintenance happening to accommodate those guest previously booked on the prior itinerary. My assumption is it should be available in the next few days but right now, it is closed until we can move all guests currently on that sailing. All we can do is wait and hope its worth the wait 🤷‍♀️🛳
  11. Checked again this morning and still no TA crossing cruise pricing available, ugh. I will not be deterred yet though!
  12. That is the question now isn’t it! Releasing it a year later than normal if the ports were unique might bring a good price and drive interest but this is not the case. I certainly don’t intend to book no matter the price so fingers crossed I’m hoping they bring something of interest to the table next week.
  13. I keep checking and have my TA watching for it to come available as well. Nothing yet 😖
  14. To my understanding only cruises after April 2020 to the Middle East have been effected so yes January 2020 is still for sale, at least for the time being. I am on the last cruise before going into dry dock and my cruise has not been cancelled
  15. Now don’t get me wrong, I am totally down with a cruise leaving from Venice arriving in Tampa but November 9th doesn’t jive with the Caribbean cruises already on sale. Time will tell, I will just keep checking in to see how this progresses!
  16. Would very much appreciate it if you see pricing or book the TA you post. I am not overly fussy about the cabin but would like to get in on pricing before it increases with capacity
  17. So odd that I can see all the other cruises and pricing but not this one. We are on the last cruise before she goes in and will be looking to book this cruise to see the changes if/when pricing comes available as we were looking to book a TA for the fall anyways!
