  1. I received my cabin assignment for my cruise - they now have me on the 14th floor, ick. We would prefer to be on 15/16/18. Guess I'll have to call in and see if they can change it.
  2. Strange. My cruise went from 6 nights to 7 nights and they did not request further compensation. Perhaps because the difference from 6 to 7 is smaller, or because the cruise is not over Christmas. Regardless - it's icky on their end to request more money when it is their own change. Boo.
  3. Where do you see this? Is it online, or in an email you received?
  4. A lot of people are experiencing the same/similar situation. Welcome to the boat, so to say. 🙂
  5. I live in Barcelona. If you haven’t already been - you will love it! Hope ya have a blast on your cruise. 🙂
  6. Interesting. I have not received communication yet. Hopefully soon. 🙂
  7. Do you think we will get an offer? I have a feeling we won’t.
  8. See, that is what I want with excursions. Stress-free, little to no cattle-herding, and good direction given. That stinks, I am super sorry. Ick.
  9. Ahhh, this was so helpful! Thank you so much. I live right outside of BCN, so this is fantastic. Thank you again! 🙂
  10. That sounds promising! Thank you for your thoughts. The descriptions of MSC's excursions are nearly identical to ones we are looking at from a 3rd party, but their cost is much better (MSC's), so I think it would be good to try out MSC's this time around. That said, I won't book any excursions through MSC until we are much closer to sail date - who knows what will happen. 😮
  11. Nice! Are you able to get EU rates with US-TA perks (OBC, etc.)? Interesting! All of the cruises I am looking at seem to be cheaper when booked on the Spanish platform as opposed to the US one. Perhaps it is a result of the times we are living in. I can't stick with the old US TA because said TA was a perk of using an organization in the US that I no longer have membership to. That said, it is time to find a new one. :,)
  12. Hola - I recently moved from Florida to Spain. In Florida, I used a "big box TA," and it was "okay" for us (nothing fantastic). Here in Spain, though, I cannot seem to find any TAs - are they just not a thing (I can't seem to find any on Google)? Can I use a TA from another country in Europe? Can I still use a US-based TA? I want to book a cruise for 2021 on the Odyssey here in Europe, but I figure before booking on my own, I should explore what options I have available with a TA. Any advice is appreciated. 🙂
  13. Is that the listed excursions in their planner do not provide any rating/review/feedback system from those whom have taken the tours. I like the safety of booking ship tours in case something goes awry (to avoid missing the ship), but I certainly don't want to book a crappy tour, and would much prefer to book a third-party one with rave reviews as opposed to less-desirable reviews. Can we please have ratings/reviews from passengers, MSC? That said - has anyone historically had good - reputable - experiences with booking MSC-sponsored excursions? #rantover
  14. No contact from them explicitly stating there will not be further cost due to the extra night, no! But when I login to see/manage my reservation, I can check on the amount of € owed and it remains the same. They also emailed me new paperwork that has the full itinerary and monetary cost of what is owed, and it shows the longer itinerary and same amount owed. 🙂
