  1. Hi, I booked my cruise a month ago, so the pre-existing condition coverage has been passed. So I am wondering if I should wait until closer to the cruise to book. What are the benefits of booking now? If I cancelled the cruise, I would rather not be out of pocket a few hundred dollars. 


    Any thoughts?


    Thanks all!

  2. Hi,


    I am looking at trip insurance policies. I found one that provides specifically cruise insurance, Nationwide Choice Cruise. I have read through their policy and it seems like a good policy but it really doesn’t mention air being covered. Does anyone know if this covers air transportation as well? Or should I go with a traditional policy?

  3. As far as their booking policy, nowhere on the documents that we received or on their website do they claim any type of additional fees.  In an email explaining that they would be implementing these charges, they stated that they normally don’t do that. 


    Now that I know that they will be charging these fees and all the mistakes they have made in quoting us much higher prices (For instance, I found a $460 airfare through Celebrity Air and they quoted us a fare of $1200 through Celebrity Air. I found a cruise price of $2500 they quoted us a fare of $4100. I ended up booking my own air through Celebrity and had them match the quote for the cruise. So many reasons to transfer the booking!)


    This was an important lesson about how a travel agent works. Next time, I will interview a travel agent to be sure that they will reprice, upgrade, and add additional perks if they become available all without fees. I am sure those TAs exist.

  4. Despite issues that I have been struggling with with our TA, I was able to book the perfect flights through Celebrity Air and at really good prices. After a call to Celebrity, I was able to get assigned seats. I was also able to get the risk free flights!


    Thanks to all for the advice and knowledge. It really makes a difference!

  5. So I contacted the TA and they contacted their cruise provider as it is different in Canada to transfer a cruise. They have asked for it to be transferred back to Celebrity. It took a couple of calls to Celebrity, numerous emails to the TA clarifying what needed to be done, and a couple of emails to Celebrity.


    Now it is just a wait and see if it is transferred.


    Thank you for all your help. It makes a difference being able to reprice, upgrade, or add more perks without a penalty.

  6. I changed my cabin today and I guess that it took my TA some time. So moving forward she is going to charge $33 for every category change, repricing etc. I am a little bit peeved with her. My cruise isn’t until January 2021 and I imagine that I will reprice it a couple of times never mind upgrade if the price is right or ask for that additional perk!

    Has anyone else experienced this?


    Thanks all!
