  1. Thanks Western Bronco. We lucked out a few years ago on a trans-pacific, but have never been so lucky again. Must have been a fluke since we booked that cabin almost a year in advance with no problem.
  2. Anyone know, does Celebrity allow parties of 2 to book the Family Veranda cabins far in advance. Looking to August-October 2022.
  3. Ruinart -one of my all-time favorite bubbly's. Shared my first bottle with DW about 20 years ago in a little restaurant in Rome. But at the price point it is a splurge.
  4. So long as you like to walk, and we do, the aft Neptunes are our choice, We love, watching the wake and exiting the ports. It is a LONG walk to the lounge so DW wants to get room service coffee first thing in the morning. The free laundry is a major perk. The lounge can be a nice place to relax. Because of COVIC impacts to our travel budget we had to drop to an SS on the 2022 cruise. Wait and see what we think of that.
  5. For me a "cruise to nowhere" or one where I am required to use a ship's tour is a non--starter. Rather stay home and drink better wine.. Required vaccine, masks, limits on elevators, limits on seating a shows/dining rooms I can adjust to and live with. Hope we can do the Kdam in Jan. 2022.
  6. We have a mid-Jan. 2022 roundtrip to Hawaii from San Diego Picked this cruise largely because no flying needed. Only a 4 hour drive to San Diego or train if we don't want to drive. But if cruises haven't restarted in the US by the time final payment is due, will likely cancel.
  7. Like many of the OPs, I simply will not cruise with HAL or any other cruise line, if restricted to ship's tour only.
  8. I hope it sails and you have a fantastic cruise. My ship doesn't sail until Jan. 2022. Hope that's enough tine to iron out all the kinks of restarting.
  9. Feel lucky to look out my office window and see the mountains everyday! Now if the would just get their snow hats on! Another dry winter in Southern California.
  10. Love the wine choice! Been a member of their Wine Club for years. Currently have 3 magnums of their vintage-dated bottles in my cellar. Probably only 2 after Thursday!
  11. While it's been about 5 years since I was on Oceania vs just a year ago on HAL, the biggest differences are the sheer size of the ship and number of pax, Found food to be much better on O, and no up charge for the special restaurants. No big show, but more ;live music on O. You can bring your own wine onboard for no extra fee. to my mind, at least there was less effort to upsell everything. But, Oceania tends to be considerably more expensive. Don't think either option is bad when we can sail again.
  12. Looking forard to answers. We have book such a cabin on the K-dam for Jan, of 2022 RT San Diego/Hawaii,
