  1. @compman9... so what have you decided to do? Cancel your May cruise as you will already have completed almost 90 days, or shorten your time in Spain so you don’t use up too many days there?
  2. Out of Southampton... probably the Take That tribute band (again) but hopefully it will be Wild Boys!
  3. 90/180 Schengen Visa Rule The 180-day period keeps rolling. Therefore, anytime you wish to enter the Schengen, you just have to count backwards the last 180 days, and see if you have been present in the Schengen for more than 90 days throughout that period. If you go on January 1st and stay 90 straight days, you have to leave and technically can’t come back until July 1st. So my understanding is that your time in Spain and your 3 days on Odyssey uses up 89 of your 90 days so you will not be allowed to go on your May cruise.🤷‍♀️
  4. On Celebrity the hours are 5-7p only ( and not held in first night or Gala night either).
  5. No it is still there under Classic.. and all higher tiers "One pre-cruise category upgrade up to AquaClass® (based on availability)" I cannot see any of the exception blurb about not valid on SVs though any more?
  6. Sorry, I'm not throwing teddy out of the pram over the loss of a few lukewarm canapes in a lounge where you had to go between 5-7p only which was far too early for me. I'd prefer free drinks when ever I want them and at my leisure.
  7. Wine question: ...."complimentary wine varieties that will now rotate between Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Moscato, and Pinot Noir".... as Little Miss Fussy only drinks white and I don't drink Chardonnay so I only get a glass of wine on the SB and the PG days then. LOL. However more worrying is no mention at all of 'house champagne or prosecco or cava...' I have just printed off the new drinks menu and nothing there either. I hope they still offer this.
  8. No, it is one FCC per person. They cannot be stacked. @MX-Drew Non Comms is the 'non commissionable cruise fare' which basically is a small (very small) percentage of the fare that the TA doesn't earn any commission on.
  9. It clearly says it won't..... The cocktail hour will no longer take place in the lounge
  10. As they only recently added a few new earlier sailings for Odyssey they must be pretty confident she will be built in time and will be allowed to sail. April 2 is her first 3n sailing from Southampton which is 135 days away.
  11. Checked my April 2021 cruise; I bought at £2857.20 to include 2 perks ( drinks and tips). Now priced today at £3966 to include drinks, tips and Wi-fi.......!!! That is pretty expensive Wi-fi 🤷‍♀️
  12. I’ve sailed on Quantum, Anthem, and Ovation and the doors were not closed.
  13. 5 positive tests on the Seadream. She sailed from the UK a few weeks ago so I’m guessing the infected people must have boarded in Barbados?
  14. Hi, do you know if this new procedure applies to Celebrity FCCs too ? Thanks x
  15. I always get the 2 perks; free drinks and free gratuities when I sail on X. That is because their CC happy hour period (5-7p) is too early for us so we never really get to utilise that. We never buy a drinks package on RCI as the happy hour window suits us just fine! Will be interesting to see what the price rise is to cover this.
  16. It is her very first sailing.. whether RCI calls it a taster, a shakedown, an inaugural or a maiden... it’s still the first with paying passengers on April 2.
  17. FB has just been reminding me with pics from last year’s Canaries... Last cruise for me was 2 weeks in Dubai on Jewel in Jan/Feb this year. At least I got 2 cruises in this year ( and 6 cancelled)
  18. Usually you cannot buy DDP on 3n sailings from England; but it is now showing for sale at £63.73pppd!!! That is $83.49!!!
  19. I think it was the original odyssey sailings that were cancelled until 17/4... then they added in these new shorties ... and in true RCI style, forgot to update the website! They have issued Twitter clarification and apology now, and updated the web!
  20. How many nights is your X cruise? Must be short as it’s 3pn for a balcony normally.
  21. Your Celebrity cruises will not add to your RCI total.
