    It's all shades of grey, not loyal to any particular cruiseline.

  1. I don't care about the cruise director. But that is the great thing about cruising. Enough options for everyone to find things they enjoy about the experience and also things they don't really care about.
  2. And the one in Rangiroa is only accessible by boat.
  3. That was my next step but I figured maybe someone here had the answer and would save me from being on hold for who knows how long....
  4. As you know, the cruise lines offer OBC for shareholders. Looking at the requirements, I need to submit one of the following: Photocopy of shareholder proxy card, a dividend tax voucher or a current brokerage or nominee statement with your current mailing address and your brokerage account number blacked out All my investments are just in an RRSP account thru my bank. So I don't have share certificates or any tax documents relating to dividends. I don't want to have to send a full statement for my account as Carnival is on the 2nd or 3rd page of holdings. Too much personal info in there, they don't need to know my financial details. How are people in similar situations handling this? How do you provide proof of share ownership when its in something like an RRSP or TFSA thru your bank?
  5. I received a survey on April 29th asking me how I felt on a variety of Covid related topics such as masks, vaccinations, etc....
  6. Here is the story https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/cruises/2021/04/28/cdc-cruises-could-restart-july/4883450001/ U.S. cruises could restart in mid-July with 95% of passengers fully vaccinated, CDC says === In a statement about the letter, spokesperson Caitlin Shockey gave USA TODAY a more specific timeline. Cruises could begin passenger voyages from the United States in mid-July, depending on cruise lines' pace and compliance with the CDC's Framework for Conditional Sailing Order. "CDC looks forward to continued engagement with the industry and urges cruise lines to submit Phase 2A port agreements as soon as possible to maintain the timeline of passenger voyages by mid-July," Shockey said. === Read the whole article there are multiple criteria cruise lines have to comply with to resume cruising earlier or perhaps easier than with prior restrictions. Step in the right direction but not a removal of the no sail order. Looks like the ball is still in the court of the cruise lines
  7. Not sure but everybody knows Sydney is in Cape Breton.
  8. Thanks for pointing that out, I've revised my post
  9. Celebrity hands down... Better quality product. Newer ship, more modern design. World Class Bar. Better specialty restaurants. Better food in the MDR. And based on my last 2 cruises on Princess, much less geriatric than Princess.
  10. ummmm..... Princess have the infamous Diamond Princess home ported in Japan. The bulk of passengers tend to be Japanese and they do cater to them on itineraries sailing out of Japan. There is an authentic Japanese Onsen on board that ship. So some cruise lines do go after that market successfully.
  11. I booked a cruise sailing in late October in late February and it came with final payment at 90 days so I just assumed the 60 days is no longer being done.
  12. Costa also use Dominican Republic, Martinique and Guadeloupe for cruises.
  13. I would agree with this. We booked Concierge once but what you actually receive for the price premium really isn't worth the extra dollars. Really the only positive is you receive more points booking CC than a standard balcony.
