  1. Thank you so much for providing this link. I’ve sent it to my Travel Agent in case she hasn’t seen it. Our American flight was just cancelled yesterday.

    Delta

    Delta has just announced that it is suspending all flights from US to Europe, except to London.
  3. Apparently there are 2 ships on their way in to port after which time it will be closed. No ships departing.
  4. The governor of Maryland just announced that the Port of Baltimore is closed. I don't think any Celebrity ships sail from there but RC has a lot of ships that leave from that port. Just wondering what it will mean to Celebrity/RCI
  5. My sister and brother-in-law are currently on the Viking Star in Norway. The ship is turning around and they will be flying out of London on Saturday. Viking has made all their travel arrangements. She said the mood on board is one of relief.
  6. We are getting on the ship in Dublin when it arrives. Wondering the same.
  7. We are on the Reflection on May 8 from Dublin which does not depart until around 9pm. Boarding will not be until about 4 pm. Our Travel Agent called Celebrity and this is what she was told, in writing. Shuttles will be available at the Dublin airport from approximately 9 am to take passengers and luggage to the ship. Luggage can then be dropped off at the ship but you cannot board or check in. We are fine with that because we will then just grab a cab and explore Dublin, minus luggage. Now I know this is not set in stone, although she spoke to her contact at Celebrity and not just the general booking person, who really did not know the answer. If that option fails for some reason, I do have the info on my phone for storage areas in Dublin. Just crossing my fingers it all works out.
  8. Our travel agent called us yesterday with this offer. We have a cruise out of Dublin on May 8 and by choosing non-refundable, we were able to save $860. Since final payment is in 5 weeks, and we have insurance, we felt it was worth it.
  9. We did not use the train but instead did a small bus tour in Skagway and it was fantastic. Our driver made many stops, including when we saw a bear on the side of the road, eating dandelion. The driver, Heidi, ran the Iditarod in 2015 and is also a special ed teacher in a small town in the interior of Alaska. She was so informative about Alaska. Our favorite excursion of the trip.
  10. Following this thread. We sail out of Dublin on the Reflection on May 8, 2020. We arrive from US at 0900. Looking to utilize one of the luggage storage places in Dublin for the day since we don’t want to travel around Dublin with luggage.
  11. We are on the Reflection in May, out of Dublin. I keep hearing conflicting information about when we can board. Some say from 11 am on, others say not till 4pm. Reflection will have just arrived in Dublin from a transatlantic and I’ve heard they do a “deep clean” at that point. My only issue is the luggage. I’m hoping that the Celebrity transport will pick us up at the airport and take us to the ship to drop off the luggage. I’d be fine with that even if we can’t board. We would just do some sightseeing then till boarding time.
  12. I will be following this thread as I’m also interested in the answer.
  13. We took a 10 day cruise this past March on the Reflection in cabin 8277, right near the elevators. Absolutely no noise. In fact, we have booked the same cabin on our cruise from Dublin next May.
  14. I have been given the strangest looks on the plane when I get out my Lysol wipes and wipe down the tray table, etc. Will also wipe down surfaces in the cabin. Leaving on the 22nd.
