  1. We took a two week trip recently and frankly my toiletry bag was way too heavy. I have travel sizes of most everything and I like to travel with my “stuff” for hair, makeup, skincare, etc. We are cruising for two weeks in August and I really want to par things down. Any bright ideas for combo products, lightweight containers, etc? And please, don’t say “you’re on vacation don’t wear makeup”. One of the things I still love about cruising is dressing up a bit in the evenings and feeling special. At 65 that takes some camouflage.
  2. Had two wonderful cruises on the Galaxy. What a beautiful ship.
  3. I think more people are doing this for the Millennium/Summit cruises because of the testing requirements. We are flying down on Thursday in August. A good chance we’ll have to test twice, another added expense, but the longest connection I could get on way down was 1 hour and 5 minutes.
  4. So glad to hear that everything has gone well. Safe travels home.
  5. I have paid for many non-Princess cruises with my Princess credit card. They don’t care.
  6. Based on our August Summit sailings, I believe they have sections excluded.
  7. Been there. We are scheduled on a B2B in August. So far nothing that would deter us. Continuing to watch and learn.
  8. Celebrity’s policy includes the individual that tests positive and their traveling party.
  9. Thank you for the update. It’s great to get information from those onboard as opposed to all the speculation on another thread.
  10. I’m sorry to hear this. You are all more likely to have been exposed on the flight down there or on the plane home, than during the remaining days of the cruise. At least in my opinion. We flew a week ago, no social distancing and the plan was packed. Have two flights next week and expect the same.
  11. Pretty much the same on Princess. Two tops are not private.
  12. We are doing B2B in August. I checked this morning and the cabins I had reserved on the Millennium for each cruise, oversized balcony, show as unavailable on the Summit. Many more unavailable cabins than could possibly have been booked since the change of ship was announced. Hoping that’s a good sign.
  13. I add my thanks. Watched a brief news clip from the Good Morning America coverage. I’ll admit it brought tears to my eyes.
  14. Thanks so much for all the information. Have a wonderful cruise!
  15. I see a lot of people posting that they got their tests for free. Are there states that require all tests be free? In our area we’re finding they run about $125 if for travel and now it seems we’ll need two since we fly on Thursday.
  16. I actually sent an email to the St. Maarten authorities when I saw this. Their response was it applied to residents of those islands?
  17. May I ask how long it took for S. Maarten to get back to you?
  18. I just want to say a big “thank you” to all who are sharing their experiences. I’m starting a file of things to remember.
  19. As an early booker I expected changes. I would have expected them more from St. Maarten or the islands. But these are Celebrity only requirements that keep changing, not governmental. And, again, no direct communication with those booked on the cruises or explanation for why the changes are necessary.
  20. If anyone is goIng to call Celebrity I would recommend using this number: Celebrity Guest Relations Department1-844-418-6824 The website lists it as the number for post cruise concerns, but when I called a few weeks ago I felt I at least got to talk to someone who was knowledgeable and caring. I’m afraid the front line reservations agents are just as confused as the rest of us.
  21. As an early booker I expected changes. I would have expected them more from St. Maarten or the islands. But these are Celebrity only requirements that keep changing, not governmental. And, again, no direct communication with those booked on the cruises or explanation for why the changes are necessary.
  22. Lots of balcony time. And I really hope the Millennium has Vueve at the Sunset Bar.
  23. This is so frustrating and I feel for those cruising this week. We sail in August. I should keep track of how many times this changes between now and then. Totally agree with the need to communicate directly and explain why.
