  1. So sorry to hear about that accident and I do not know how you managed, as I was cringing and clamping my hands on my chair even looking at the pictures. Here's to pain subsiding quickly!!! 😞
  2. The Getaway is doing 10 and 11 night Italy/Greece itineraries starting in the summer of 2020, I believe, and the itineraries are essentially identical to the 2021 itineraries (except there is one in 2020 doing Athens, but none of the other 2020 or 2021 itineraries visit Athens). So we will have to keep an eye on how docking and tendering goes in 2020, but it isn't as though the Getaway is going to Venice.
  3. @Griller - not sure if your post was just edited incorrectly but if you're asking about the value of a regular inside vs a YC inside, it's really not the cabin that makes the difference. It's the private restaurant, lounge, and pool deck primarily, the escalated level of service, the drink package is of course part of it (but you can of course purchase a drink package separately).
  4. I would just beg to differ for a moment. We absolutely did encounter sales promotion tactics and solicitation in the YC, right in the top sail lounge and on the YC pool deck (on Seaview in May). We were asked about specialty dining packages at least 2x (we had already bought the packages, so please stop) and spa I believe 1-2x. It was a simple matter of saying no thanks, but still found it annoying.
  5. Having sailed YC on the Seaview in the Mediterranean for very similar reasons (originally booked Haven on the Epic in the Med; YC came in at less than half the price) I completely agree with what BermudaBound2014 says. It is not a "catch" but mostly because YC gets to avoid a lot of the issues most commonly complained about with MSC. The food in the YC that we had was fine, some dishes were great (risotto always a hit) and some were passable - but we talked to friends who dined in the MDR and absolutely hated it, with cold food and super slow service. Yes, food is subjective and service differs depending on day/server but you will find those to be really common complaints with non-YC MSC cruisers.
  6. I had OBC from my TA. It more than covered our gratuities and the one specialty dinner we paid for, so I had about $50 left. We went to the casino and 'took out' $50 on a slot machine, spun once and won $8, then cashed out, and took the voucher to the casino desk and they gave me $58 back in cash.
  7. What is the purpose of posting this... she said she called MSC and if she's in Sweden it's likely nighttime. There's so much gatekeeping on CC, just let people ask their questions!!
  8. I did see some 7 night Alaska sailings, but the one-way cruises only, not RT Seattle.
  9. Well in "real" sales news, they did put out the 20% off for latitudes members this month on select 2020 sailings - and it was a real 20% off, not a "we raised the prices first then lowered them for the sale" sale.
  10. Sounds like a fun and cheap trip. But what is TK maxx? I live in Vancouver and have never heard of it ?

  12. Thanks for posting this! I switched my Rome/Greece cruise from June to August and saved $2,200 CAD - although technically the latitudes offer was a savings of $1,300 off that same sailing without the latitudes offer.
  13. We sailed in the Seaview in late May and these menus were already in place in the YC there - and I can confirm that the risotto was delicious every single night :)
  14. There isn't anywhere to stow your luggage so you will have to stand or sit with it (a very common sight on the skytrain)
