  1. Most responses...Port Canavaral. That is a growing port. I've never embarked from there, but had it as a stop on a cruise from Quebec to Miami.
  2. Ticketmaster has an option for refunding your ticket? How does that work?
  3. I've done the Caribbean many times and am looking for new destinations. I want to do a transatlantic and I think most of those ships go out from the eastern side of FL and not Tampa.
  4. Yes, with the site having that so far in the process, they don't want to facilitate booking refundable rates.
  5. Can you book a specific cabin number in advance on RCI and it not be a non-refundable fare? When I just tried to do a sample booking and picked a cabin, my only option was NRF I thought the only way to get a refundable fare was to book a guaranty cabin? Can you book a specific room and still get a refundable (without it being paid by travel insurance)?
  6. Did you have a few days in Singapore before the cruise? I was there years ago, but after watching Crazy Rich Asians and seeing how much the city has grown, I am ready to go back there again! What were your other ports? Did you do other tours with CC members?
  7. We've mostly traveled out of Miami or Ft Lauderdale and recently did one from Tampa. We'll be moving to FL soon and it seems all the ports are an easy drive. Which are your favorite departure ports and why?
  8. Earlier this year we were docked next to the Allure and we could hear the music blasting on their open decks. We were so envious! We've been on 3 jazz cruises and there were 6 - 8 venues of jazz music every day. Loved that and chatting with the musicians.
  9. I would love to get some feedback from anyone who has done of these music cruises. I love the line up of musicians they have and am curious about how they run their different shows.
  10. I really loved that program!
  11. It's been at least 10 years since I've been on a Crystal cruise as we've been trying other lines and land tours. I read the opening thread about "share the experience" from 2013. Has this option disappeared where you can sponsor or be sponsored by a past Crystal cruiser?
  12. Now if they included a t-pool, heated ceramic loungers, and aroma therapy steam rooms, I would pay extra for the pkg. But a sizable t-pool is required. I am so in love with them.
  13. Good to hear that all the facilities are available now. Sad that they will be going away as we've always loved them.
  14. I think it's lovely that you gift each other on your cruise. After my last cruise, I searched online and found an anchor pendant on my own. My DH is wonderful, but he would have a hard time figuring out what size pendant or earrings I liked. When I buy my own jewelry, I always thank him for his great taste and sense of style! On our last beach getaway, we bought a box of chocolates from a wonderful confectioners shop. It was our way of doing the chocolates on the pillow every night. We were actually good and only had one chocolate each night. Think this will be a standard on our cruises if we know we don't get chocolates.
