  1. Hello - I am from the UK and am cruising around Greece next week. I have just paid Vodafone £20 for 20GB of mobile data for this month, thinking I can use this instead of the expensive ship Wifi. With all the technical stuff on board a ship, I assume I can still use my mobile data on ship, obviously depending whether I am in range??? Thanks
  2. In March this year, we booked an Azamara Cruise around the Caribbean in November. All the islands are in the Amber zone, so no problem. However, I have just found out that Azamara/RCL's private island, Labadee is off Haiti, which is in the Red Category. Therefore, I am having to cancel this wonderful 14 day cruise. Just a warning to others.......
  3. Hello there - I am seriously considering booking Windstar next month Athens to Athens, so mostly Greek ports. However, it does make a stop in Turkey which is currently on the red list. Does anyone know it I do not leave the ship, can I continue on my cruise and not have to Hotel Quarantine on my return, as I did not visit Turkey? Thank you.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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 is due on 23 October. We have been offered a Lift and Shift, etc, but even the smallest of the Celebrity ships are 2000 pax, which we really do not want, so don't want a credit. So the dilemma is - do we pay the full amount on 23 October and hope that Celebrity cancel the 17 January sailing and then they will have to legally refund our money. Interestingly, I went onto the Celebrity website yesterday and the same cruise, ie 17 January now costs $4000 more, yes $4000 more that I am paying. So, the question is, is Celebrity trying to deter folks from booking this sailing?? Furthermore, my TA is phoning me almost every day, asking whether I want to Lift and Shift, etc, almost desperate for me to move my booking. Furthermore still, I note today that Seabourn and Azamara have now stated that they will now not be sailing until April 2021 and these are the smaller ships!!! So these actions are making me believe that Celebrity Equinox will not be sailing on 17 January, so do I pay my money and hopefully, get a refund if they don't. One last thought - what happens if some of the Caribbean islands, now do not allow the larger ships to dock, even when they do start up cruising - can you get a refund then, if the itinerary changes significantly?? Sorry about the long post - but I really don't know what to do..... Many thanks in advance. Sandy
  8. 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????
  9. 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 Miami, but then arrives in San Juan, so I have to get AA flights from San Juan back to Miami, but apparently and quite conveniently, Seabourn are saying that the £400 air credit only applies to flights to and from the UK????? The internal flights are only £189 each, so we are not asking for the full amount. Does anyone know where I can find the terms and conditions of this Air Credit, so I can check. Like I say, soooo disappointed with Seabourn, so far... Sandy
  10. 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?
  11. 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 guarantee cabin, but my TA told me that the sailing was only half full. So, I just wondered whether this was usual practice for Seabourn to allocate cabins so early, or have they simply allocated the cabin I have paid for, then perhaps will change it again nearer to the sailing????? Thanks
