  1. Replying to the original topic of basically how safe is Seattle, I have a cruise leaving there next May. Closer to the new year if cruise lines are a go, we will evaluate the circumstances. Right now, we have 15 people traveling to the cruise port and would like to explore Seattle for a week before sailing. Hotels are booked but they can easily be cancelled if the town of Seattle doesn't make their tourists feel comfortable. Lots of money could be spent there but only if there is an atmosphere of safety. Right now, Not so.
  2. Last time we sailed out of FLL, we stayed here and ate at a very tasty restaurant about one mile from hotel if I remember correctly. Was a greek place called my big fat greek restaurant. Hope to go again in 2021
  3. Back in late 90's, we celebrated our 20th anniversary on the Galaxy. We were given an anniversary box from guest relations. It contained 2 plush Terry bathrobes, bottle of champagne, 2 celebrity champagne glasses and a picture frame. We were so surprised! Our room stewardess even had a roll of packing tape/scissors available for us to use to ship on our plane ride home! We were never sure how the word got out, but it was the nicest touch! That's why we love Celebrity!
  4. My refund showed up on my credit card under 4 installments, however it all did come in exactly correct when added together!
  5. Brought a smile and a few tears also! Hope to sail the oceans blue again soon!!
  6. We did the Liberty of the Seas last year. Loved the slides and had a great time. Very relaxed atmosphere on the ship. Had a balcony room on Deck 6 which we love as it's down one flight of stairs to the Cafe Promenade for coffee/tea and snack! Liberty is a big ship but not too big that it's an effort to get around or find someone.
  7. Started sailing on the Galaxy in 1998......hooked ever since! 😍
  8. We have been blessed to have been cruising for 20 plus years. Our first cruise on Celebrity's Galaxy was magical. It opened up a whole new world for us. So much so, my sister's family and ours sailed the next year on the Century. The best memory on that was the embarkation. As we reached the top of the escalator , the kids looked out the window at the huge ship and all nearly screamed! They had no idea it was such a big ship (by 1990's standards!!) We had prepared our children all summer long for table manners at a formal dinner. They were told, this is your chance to try new things to eat
  9. I must be one of the lucky ones! Had a cruise canceled by RCI in March and 60 days later, everything owed to me was put back on my credit card. Never got an email but amount on card was all correct......cruise, port fees, insurance, deposit , shore excursions and beverage package! Turned around and put deposit down for another try next May. These are stressful times as it is, don't add more to your life.......they will refund it.
  10. Just went online to Celebrity's website and looked up "contact us". Called the 800 #. A gentleman answered and looked at problem of switching with no exact same itinerary. He then contacted Resolutions dept. and they all worked out a satisfactory solution. It was about an hour total phone conversation but worth it to us.
  11. I just went from an original 11 night down to a 9 night. Exact same itinerary wasn't available in 2021. Closest itinerary was on the Edge. They declined that due to stipulation that class of ship must match (or be smaller class). Resolution desk offered me this 9 night, same itinerary , minus one port and one sea day. They gave me the same category of room and reduced price. Price was a daily average of my original sailing minus 2 days. My OBC was transferred also. I was very happy with this offer as I was afraid Nov. 2020 was too early to sail. I appreciate Celebrity working with it's cliente
  12. much thanks for the picture (really appreciated that Sippican) and all the answers from others. Is the cabin space the same for all decks then too?
  13. I was wondering if there are any preferred sky suite (ss1) on the aft corners ? Are some balconies larger than others? I think deck 12 corner sky suites have a window washing machine so that is a con. Anyone have pictures of the different corner rooms? I am looking at the Reflection for next year. Thanks for helping me plan....and dream!
  14. I have sailed on the Constellation, Infinity and the Summit. If your itinerary is taking you to a hot and sunny location, the concierge rooms on deck 9 have a covered balcony. We loved this when we did a 15 day through the Panama Canal. It was very sunny so the covered area was a bonus to still enjoy sitting outdoors. We never had any noise issues from above. We were just aft of the midship . In cold/cooler weather, we have been on deck 3 with the extra large windows. We really enjoyed the light and looking out as a balcony would have been a waste.
  15. Thanks for the info, Jelayne. We are not sure in the fluid moment what we are going to do but appreciate everyone's response and suggestions! Hubby is recovering from cancer treatment (which took us by surprise) so I don't want to compromise his health as this current cruise season looks. November is a bit down the road so it's a waiting game for sure!
