  1. Thanks minidonuts85. We'll keep our eye on this one. Not booking anything until we and wherever we are going have been vaccinated. More interested in life on board than getting off these days. Happy cruising again... eventually.
  2. We are O and Celebrity cruisers who spend (normal) winters in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. I am intrigued by the Star Breeze cruise from PV to San Diego on April 30/22. Very unique routing due to the small size of the ship. Sounds like we would not be disappointed. Question, do all the suites (cabins) have a balcony or not on Star Breeze?
  3. Here is more evidence that it is not going well. Repatriation is a terribly complex and unprecedented situation with borders closed, no flights, patchwork of international rules which change daily. However if the cruise industry cannot guarantee the safety and safe passage home of its own employees, what does this say about the future viability of the industry as a whole for the paying public? These crew members helped paying passengers to get home safely and now they are trapped, many without being paid. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/tourism-cruises/art
  4. A lot either way. That's why cruise ship companies are selling cruises as fast as they can to finance the cash they are burning and burning. Hopefully they will be able to get crew home safely and deliver on the promised cruises.
  5. This detailed crew repatriation plan was published 10 days ago on the Crew-Center.com web site. I applaud Celebrity CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo's personal dedication and commitment to getting Celebrity crew back home during the Covid-19 pandemic, no what the cost. It has since been reported that the Eclipse and Millennium were turned back from docking in Puerto Vallarta two days ago. They have Covid cases onboard and perhaps no Mexican nationals. I wonder how the rest of this plan is progressing. If it is taking this long to get crew members home, how long will it take to get them back? Meanwh
  6. Here is the link to that Celebrity ship story in Spanish you can google translate to English: http://vallartaopinaenlinea.com/2020/05/cancelan-arribo-de-dos-cruceros-a-vallarta-tras-navegar-1700-km-buscaban-ayuda-humanitaria/
  7. Repatriation is not going smoothly. Many countries it seems only allow their own nationals to disembark if they allow a ship to dock at all. Here is a link to the sad situation with the Eclipse and Millennium ships: https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fvallartaopinaenlinea.com%2F2020%2F05%2Fcancelan-arribo-de-dos-cruceros-a-vallarta-tras-navegar-1700-km-buscaban-ayuda-humanitaria%2F There are reports of crew member suicide. This is an ongoing humanitarian crisis folks. I admire the hard work and personal dedication of Celebr
  8. That's exactly what I tried to do but the online change flight tool only allowed moving it up 3 or 4 days (not sure why). I could not reach AC by phone - they would not even add you to the queue. With borders closing, flights being cancelled, I booked anew flight online to be safe. Still, we had another week on the beach after the change and it was great lol.
  9. We had to book an earlier AC flight online at much higher cost as our travel insurance would be terminated after March 23. Home safely and in quarantine. Sorry to hijack this posting about this.
  10. We cancelled an April 7, 2020 Air Canada flight booking from Mexico to Canada on March 14 in response to the Candian Global Travel Advisory. We received a $ credit for a future flight that expires in Dec 2020. Not justifying O's position on this but it seems to be standard travel industry practice?
