  1. Some cruiselines do care and want to sail with happy cruisers and crew....RC and NCL formed a Safe Sail committee to spearhead the start up, with 4 members that are or were with CDC, 2 members that were with WHO, and 1 that was in office with Bill Gates. It doesn't matter if cruisers are in cabins next to each other...there is a wall. It does matter for crew to not share a cabin, which is why there is consideration of having them in lower deck cruiser cabins. Fun Fact: ships can sail with 2/3 capacity and still make money.
  2. I'm seeing it on all my 2020-21 bookings....ppl are cancelling or shifting and the cabins aren't been put back into inventory. That is how they are reducing pax. No one is going to get booted. Then I would think they will hire back less crew and give each their own cabin to minimize germ spread, using ones on decks 2,3, and maybe 4 (depending on size of ship.
  3. Is Daytona Beach a good choice? Is it any closer than Disney/Universal for travel in traffic to make back to ship?
  4. What is best to do when visiting as a port of call? Is there transportation available to hire if want to visit Universal? Have a folding electric wheelchair.
  5. What can you do for a reasonable price and limited time when a ship visits as a port of call?
  6. A couple years ago, we were booked on Infinity and 2 months before cruise date, we were given notice that our intinery changed from Pacific coastal to Alaska...total different, not where we wanted to go. Told we would be given 50 OBC. I did my research and found out they accepted an agreement to have the ship docked in San Fransisco as a floating hotel for a Tech Convention. Hotels were filled and a company chartered the ship as a hotel for their employees to attend the convention.
  7. For our cruise in Nov. 2020, under excursions, the daybeds are shown twice. One as South Beach Daybed and the other as just Daybed. Are they putting more in another location? Would it be better than South Beach? And, the price shows price as "per adult", which total would be over 500$ Can anyone clarify for me?
  8. That post was over 10 years ago. I don't think you'll get a response.
  9. Im looking for our 1st Celebrity cruise as Diamond. I'm confused on if we are able to enter a club lounge for the happy hour drinks and access to a specialty coffee machine for our latte and mocka (or even access all day?). I did look at the loyalty program emenities on Celebrity website. No tik beside clubs, but tiks beside happy hour/3drinks on card and "coffee bar" (?). Can anyone claify for me?
  10. There's a free luggage valet service. It’s called Port Valet and it will allow cruise guests disembarking their ship after a cruise and heading to the airport to go “luggage free.” You don’t have to carry around luggage if your taking a post-cruise day tour or just exploring on your own around the Seattle area for the day. Your luggage heads straight from the ship to your airline at the airport and is checked in. Because Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (also known as Sea-Tac) and the Port of Seattle are run by the same authority, this can help expedite passenger service between the two. Thus, the group is able to offer the courtesy Port Valet service as follows. Passengers complete an enrollment form onboard their ship. You'll then receive airline boarding passes and luggage tags in your stateroom or suite onboard. The ship’s crew will pick up the luggage the night before disembarkation. Guests can look forward to a hassle-free disembarkation the next morning. Luggage is sent from the pier to Sea-Tac Airport via a secure truck and delivered directly to the guest’s airline. So there is no need for the passenger to check those bags at the airport. When guests arrive at Sea-Tac with boarding passes in hand, they simply proceed to the security check-in to reach the gate. Cruisers can track their bags at portvalet.maketraveleisier Participating airlines include Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta, Horizon Air, JetBlue, Southwest Airlines, Spirit Airlines and United Airlines. The only fees that passengers would pay would be any normal baggage fees an airline may charge for either checking a bag or excess baggage.
  11. Correct. My husband rented a scooter and then bought one of these chairs. He is thrilled with it! Much better than the scooter. Turns on a dime, less space taken up in elevator, comfortable to sit at a table or in the theatre, can put aside if he wants to sit in a dining chair or theatre seat, batteries are only 6 pounds (3 each) to make it easy to bring on cabin plane (because they are lithium) when he folds it for it to be stored in the belly when he rides right to the plane door, it is a total of 53 pounds, have never run out battery in ports and if it does then I can free-wheel push him like a regular wheelchair.
