  1. Dalliowner, I noticed that the price of my V6 on the crossing from Lisbon has more than doubled! We booked it at $4999 and now they are asking $11,999 a person!!!!!!!!! Lisbon is not doing well with Covid nor with getting the vaccine out, so truthfully, I wonder if we will be going. My husband is being a bit negative about it....I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
  2. We are booked on a Nov 6, Lisbon to Miami (we live in Miami). As of now, Portugal is not allowing tourist to fly or drive into the country. Obviously, that could change. The CDC will be coming out with a new recommendation in another month or so, but I doubt they will be opening up the ports any time soon. We are both vaccinated (getting our second shot next week). I am not sure if I would be comfortable going on the cruise if I knew that not everyone was vaccinated. If we have to wear facemarks outside of our cabin, I could deal with that, but it's the ability to socialize and meet
  3. TransAtlantic or Travel Agent..... in this case, a transatlantic cruise 😀
  4. My TA charged us a fee of $104 pp for both of our cancelled cruises in 2020. The first cruise I cancelled and he told me that he was going to charge the fee, but I would get it back when I completed a new cruise, so I didn't argue. The second cruise was cancelled by Seabourn and I was still charged the fee. I was a bit annoyed because it was not my fault the cruise was cancelled, but since his travel business was in such bad shape because of Covid, I bit my tongue and said nothing, again. We have another cruise on the books...transatlantic Lisbon to Miami...later this year. Portugal stil
  5. Looks like face masks will be required for any cruise that docks in the US according to the new CDC rule. I couldn’t get the link to Post, but maybe someone with better IT skills will be able to...... it was on a RCCL Blog post.
  6. We are also booked on that Nov 6 transatlantic. Since we live in Miami we are certainly hoping for it to end there as scheduled. Let’s just hope that the vaccine works and that the people of Portugal receive it along with the crew members from all over the world... There are a lot of moving parts here that must happen in order for everyone to travel safely. I have concerns, especially with several new strains of the virus popping up around the world, that this may be our third cancelled cruise......
  7. Some Cellular companies offer specials for cruises. Seabourn is one of the companies for Bellsouth. It’s $100 for 30 days of unlimited text and talk. It’s nice to have for a long cruise if you want to speak to family or friends at home while you are cruising. It does not work while in port, only while at sea.
  8. The Nov 6 Lisbon to Miami? We are also booked on that! I know of two other couples that are also booked on it....friends we made on our Dec 2019 cruise from Dubai to Hong Kong. Fingers Crossed 🤞🤞🤞🤞
  9. A Question...... We had two cancelled cruises with Seabourn. For our July, 2020 cancelled cruise we requested our money refunded, which it was after 90 days. Done. For our Nov, 2020 cancelled cruise we requested the FCC +25% which we just received and put it towards our Nov 2021 cruise. I thought that there was something else Seabourn was giving us beyond the 25% bump. I though we also were to receive $300 of shipboard credit. Was that just wishful thinking on my part or am I remembering correctly? Looking forward to your responses...... Jodi
  10. JOZI - EXACTLY why we do that. I get the ins right away at the lowest amount, but within that 15 day timeframe for the pre-existing!
  11. My TA said they would not refund us when I asked 😢. But, both of our cruises were only in the deposit stages so the insurance cost was relatively minimal. I only insure the actual amount I have paid out, then I up the insurance amount at each stage of payment and pay the updated dollars for the updated trip payment.
  12. Our Trip Insurance for our two cancelled trips did not refund us, but credited us so we could use the trip insurance toward a future trip....And, we have two years to use the funds. We already booked a cruise for Nov 2021 and used all the credits towards Insurance on that trip..... Good Luck! Jodi
  13. WE GOT OUR REFUND!!!!!! I’m doing the Happy Dance 💃 Only took them 88 days...... The funny part is that the amount credited was for ALL monies I paid out in one lump sum...the cruise deposit PLUS the air flights via Flight Ease. I’m not complaining, though. For those still waiting....Keep The Faith, Baby. It will happen. Big (safe) Hugs to all!!!
  14. I’m in Miami (Coconut Grove) and you’re just up the road in Lauderdale.....once Covid subsides a bit we can meet in the Aventura area and plan it!
