  1. Canada is chartering a plane to repatriate Canadians http://ctvnews.ca/health/coronavirus/feds-chartering-plane-to-repatriate-canadians-on-california-cruise-ship-1.4844048 From the article - “This decision was made following a request for assistance from the Government of the United States to repatriate Canadians,”
  2. We had 2 lounge chairs, 2 regular chairs and a small table on the balcony when we arrived at the cabin.
  3. Not sure you are looking for 2021 sailings but there is a return transatlantic that might interest you. Carnival Valor - Jan 25/21 New Orleans to Barcelona, the ship will go into dry dock and then will do the return sailing, Barcelona to New Orleans on Feb 26/21. This would give you 17 days to visit with your loved one.
  4. You shouldn't have a problem with language on the ship. All the staff we came in contact with spoke English. Announcements were in Spanish and English. I did a solo Transatlantic a few years ago (but not on Pullmantur) and LOVED it! Pullmantur is great value and a great cruise line.
  5. Also all the specialty coffees are included too. We had Cappuccinos in the morning and Cappuccinos with Irish Cream after dinner. Pullmantur really is great value for the money. We are looking at doing another cruise with them next year. @Pacificana Enjoy your cruise on the Sovereign!
  6. DH and I just finished a B2B on the Zenith on Sept 28th. It was our first time with Pullmantur and we LOVED it! We mainly sail with NCL (we are Platinum) and we were getting a little tired of them and wanted a change. Pullmantur has recently teamed with a three Michelin-starred chef and the food is wonderful. We thought the food was far better than NCL and the Gala night dinner (7 courses) was the best meal either of us has had on a cruise. We ate all our dinners in the dining room but we did walk thru the buffet and they put tablecloths on the tables for dinner which we thought was a nice touch. Having the drinks included was wonderful. Since everyone has it, you never have to show a card to get a drink. At dinner, wine flows very freely 🙂 I just checked our last NCL cruise (in June) and taxes were $339 and on Pullmantur they were $225 the first cruise and $260 the second cruise. We booked directly with Pullmantur at Pullmantur.travel which is in English and USD. Highly recommend Pullmantur!!
  7. Loved our aft cabin on the Gem! Can't beat that view!!
  8. Keep checking. The cruise I wanted was showing sold out, then one day there was a balcony cabin available and I grabbed it. Once I booked, it was showing sold out again. After final payment, more cabins did open up. And sign up for emails. They sent me a sale notice for the cruise following ours. We booked during the sale and we saved 50% on that cruise. Also don't forget to check off the 55+ discount if it applies. And their excursions are so much cheaper than other cruise lines! I am doing a B2B next month on the Zenith, which is leaving Pullmantur at the end of the year. These ships are ex Celebrity ships. My first cruise was on the Horizon which is a sister ship of the Zenith. I will do a review of our cruises when we return.
  9. Hi. Anyone else on this cruise? DH and I just booked this cruise last week. We are doing a B2B with the Sept 15th sailing from Lisbon.
  10. The Elvis promo has expired. I just used it when I booked a last minute cruise on the Escape and in the fine print it said it was for cruises booked by mid June - sorry I can't remember the exact date. Maybe the box is only there when there is a valid promo.
  11. I just booked the Zenith for Sept. It does look interesting and the price was great. I booked a balcony cabin. I looked around for how to book and ended up booking directly with Pullmantur but on their .travel site which is in USD and in English.
  12. Just an FYI you don't need a membership to use the drag decks. Here is the Bliss decks and to change to another ship, use the drop down menu on the left - https://www.cruisedeckplans.com/DP/deckplans/dragdeck.php?ship=Norwegian-Bliss
