  1. Thank you all for your replies. As PSR suspected, we will not need any visas for our upcoming Panama Canal Cruise. I did give HAL feedback that I was concerned about data theft because of the way the email was written, the information the company had, and that we had no direct communication from HAL or PCC. I had only the CIBT's own statement that they are HAL's preferred vendor. I understand the advantage of HAL doing this, but with the insignificant cost of email, etc, it would have been helpful to have had an email, text or note from HAL as introduction. Based on 1Angelcat's post, the HAL representative I spoke to was incorrect when she stated this affiliation began today. In the end, at least I don't have to worry about this being data theft.
  2. PSR, great idea. I got through to an agent who had an idea of what I was asking about. Turns out that it is legit. She told me that Holland America switched to this Visa company effective today. Thank you for your suggestion.
  3. It has been a few years since we have cruised on Holland America, but we have cruised more recently on Celebrity. We have a HAL Panama Canal cruise coming up early next year. Today, I received an email from a visa service that had my HAL booking number and name....so they may be legit and have gotten the information from HAL. I am skeptical about a "click here" link in an email from a company I've never done business with. Is this something that HAL now sends out, or, more accurately I guess...Is it routine for HAL to sell our information to a 3rd party company, particularly this one? Kind of hits me as an identity theft scam since I'm sure they will want lots of info.

  4. Thank you Diamond lover! I was able to find it using your clear directions. We are on a Feb 9 cruise. When I submitted our information I got the message "We are sorry, we have no space available". But your instructions will help me for future cruises. Thank you again.
  5. Jagoffee mentions checking on the Celebrity website for Move Up availablility. I have not been able to find this. Can anyone help with further direction? Thank you.
