  1. Hi, We have got a cruise booked in a concierge class for October cruise. Concierge class was the highest class we could afford reasonably in our budget. But i am not sure if i will actually benefit from it... so i may have just wasted the extra money. I have had one cruise before, in a celebrity room with veranda, so it appears the room is the same (although before my balcony was slightly bigger because we was on the diagonal part of the ship) How do we get the best out of the concierge class, we are not too needy, i don't like asking for too much, but i gue
  2. Thanks guys... i will crawl back under the rock i stayed in towards the end of 2020. The general view and feelings are nearly identical to that i was hearing in April/May last year so i can see from this i would just be repeating the pointless process of booking to be cancelled at a later date. To be fair, Royal Caribbean was perfect when it comes to refunding and communication so that probably wouldn't have put me off the risk... but im still recovering from the stress of trying to recover 3k from virgin atlantic! I shall book a nice caravan holiday in the uk for this
  3. I booked a couple of cruises last year in hope... both to be as predicted, cancelled. Now i have given it about 8 months since my last one was cancelled... and i cant wait much longer :) I was thinking of booking a Europe cruise out of UK for August.. is that likely to go ahead? What are peoples views on when the cruises will be back up and running? I have deliberately been avoiding keep checking the latest cruise news as it was easier to forget about cruising for a while :(... but now im back considering it, is there a timetable they have set or aiming
  4. Just to confirm that you are giving me a little bit of hope? I just felt that European cruises were a possibility as the majority of countries have a reasonable hold on the virus and most things are open with new guidelines
  5. 😞 this is not what i was hoping to hear... but thank you for your replies.
  6. am i wasting my time or do you think there is a good chance of it going ahead?? Royal caribbean 24th October from venice
  7. Assuming this means they have no say in wether or not they sail from UK. I think it would be irresponsible and too risky for reputation for them to set sail any time before this crisis is under control, even if its not in an area CDC have a say. I just want to know its cancelled now... feels like its dragging on
  8. I dont understand why rc still say they are re commencing on 12th may if the 100 day order has been published?
  9. So its 1 month today that apparently RC will be back setting sail.. With that said, are we assuming it will be today/tomorrow that they announce the next month of being closures? If my 23rd may cruise goes ahead..im going to be caught off guard... i stopped my pre getaway diet for starters 🤣 Havent been able to get any holiday clothes... just would be not prepared at all!

  11. any idea when they will be announcing if they are cancelling the next batch of cruises (after May 12th?) my cruise falls in the next period so i am just waiting for the next month of cancellations to be confirmed so i can start the process of trying to get back my payments.
  12. Thanks all for your replies. It leaves me quite concerned, as basically, not one person has actually successfully got there money back yet. Im just hoping they are not going to delay it as long as possible to see if they go out of business first. Push for your money back as soon as possible because.... if they do go pop... you will be lucky to get a percentage of it back. Would be sad sad times if these ships never sailed again 😞
  13. Which i assume is as good as 100% going to happen (would love to hear from you if you disagree :) ) Once they officially cancel it, how easy and quick is it to get a refund?... im thinking i will just get a straight refund as i think it could be a long time until they sail again and i don't think i will get as good a rate as i did this time so the 125% isn't actually going to be a bonus. So, anyone else actually requested a refund for the cancelled cruise since this all kicked off? Thanks Side issue... im not looking forward to trying to get my m
  14. Sorry to hear you are already one of the financial victims of this, i think there will be many many more, but i still pray more that you and your family... and for anyone, that you do not become a health victim of this crisis, either directly or indirectly. it appears there are hard times ahead, please all prepare for the worst but believe and prey for the best. I appreciate you took a step back from your position on this and i can fully understand you didn't do so in full. As others have pointed out, it can very much grab hold of any age. I think what is di
