  1. Hello there - that is great news about the refurb. May I ask - have you sailed with PG before, as the cruises are a lot of money and it takes forever to get to Tahiti from the UK, so I want everything to be perfect. However, I have read that the service is not that great, etc, etc. We are used to Seabourn/Regent onboard service - surely with an ship this expensive, the service should be out of this world? Sandy
  2. Hello all - we are planning our Silver Wedding Anniversary onboard PG next Sept (2021) - just wondered whether it actually went into Dry Dock this year for its major refurb? If not, not sure if I want to book, as some reviews are stating that its looking tired, etc. Thanks Sandy
  3. My apologies for the lack of response. I spoke to my TA just before the balance was due and she explained that I can actually cancel up to 48 hours before cruising and then receive a credit. However, if the cruise is cancelled by Celebrity then I would get a full cash refund, so we decided we had nothing to lose, so paid the balance and fingers crossed, the cruise will be cancelled on 17 January, as we really don't want to be cruising currently.
  4. Hello all- this is my Celebrity Dilemma... Hubby and I love cruising, but we feel that in the future we will just cruise on the much smaller ships, ie Azamara, Seabourn, etc, etc. However, we have a Celebrity Equinox 12 day Caribbean cruise on 17 January 2021, furthermore, this cruise was transferred (at our request) from a November cruise last year which we had already paid for, but not taken, so those monies were transferred over to our 17 January 2021 Equinox cruise as the deposit. So currently Celebrity have $2334 as a deposit for our Equinox cruise and the balance of $3617
  5. I agree with you entirely about the GTY category. But the spirit on this category, I assumed, was that they have every right to put me in the worst cabin, if the sailing was full and I would get this allocated 7 days beforehand - I would totally understand. My complaint is that my cabin was allocated in April, 7 months before sailing, so if the ship is only half full (for example) would I still be in the worst cabin - so why allocate now, why not allocate 7 days before????
  6. Hello all - this is the first time I have booked with Seabourn, its the most expensive cruise we have booked, to date, but so far have been truly disappointed with them. Firstly, they have already allocated me the worst cabin on the ship (although I did book at GTY category, but on other ships, the cabin is not allocated until the last minute, which I quite understand). Also, Seabourn are offering free wifi, some OBC and £400 air credit per guest. We are flying into Miami from London (return) using our BA Airmiles, so will not be using the air credit, BUT, our cruise leaves Mi
  7. Hello - I have just booked the Sojourn for 16 November 2020 and this is my first time with Seabourn, so would welcome a $400 OBC referral thingy. I am from the UK, so does it have to be a UK referral? Not too happy with Seabourn though at present, as I booked a GTY cabin and 7 months before sailing my cabin has been allocated, the worst verandah cabin on the ship, close to anchor, etc. Strange, as I thought the cabins don't generally get allocated until a few weeks before sailing?
  8. Hello all - I have sailed with many cruise lines, but this is the first time with Seabourn. Generally, we book at Guarantee cabin and generally strike lucky and get a good cabin, but the cabin numbers aren't generally allocated until a couple of weeks before sailing. So, I booked on the Seabourn Sojourn for 16 November sailing a couple of weeks ago on a GTY VOB, a verandah cabin and today was told that my cabin has already been allocated, ie Cabin 506, which I would say is the worst on the ship, ie a very small balcony. Now, of course, I understand I take the risk when booking a guar
