  2. Here is something new to consider using Flights by Celebrity if the costs are similar. (Click on the arrow at the top right, pointing to the right, to see the post, not just the start of the thread)
  3. Expand first quote for copy of celebrity policy pertaining to being identified as close contact. If you are identified as being a close contact to someone who tested positive, Celebrity will pay for flights only if you booked them through Celebrity Air. If you booked on your own, they will cover costs up until the point you needed to fly, which you would have to pay.
  4. Also, in order to get some on the benefits, like the discounts on pre cruise purchases, you may have to call the captains club, not all are available online.
  5. For a holder for you vaccination card, I used an extra cruise luggage tag holders our TA sent to us. I had to just cut off the end and slid it in from the side. Worked perfectly, and seemed appropriate to use something from our March 2020 cancelled cruise, to hold the ticket to let us cruise again!!!
  6. Watched the Beyond wellness journey on YouTube, using the link from my "exclusive" email, but didn't see anything about PUPs. Maybe a later email???
  7. 🤑 🤑🤑 Received another BIG Check for a whopping $2.50. When combined with the previous $16.68 check, received back in August 2020, that brings the grand total to $19.18 🤑🤑🤑
  8. We've generally have been doing the Celebrity ships recently for the reasons mentioned. Looked forward each night to fun at the Martini Bar on the S Class ships. However, pre-COVID, we did like to book any new Oasis class, for the entertainment. We enjoyed the Broadway shows, Diving, Ice Skating, and Comedy entertainment. We also enjoyed the adult (16+) area, in the front of the ship, during the day; having a drink in Central Park at night, listening to acoustic musicians; and people watching on the Prominade Deck or the Rising Tide Bar.
  9. Received this invite to a reveal about the Beyond, but no PUPs for this. Will probably attend anyway. 🙂 There was a link, but it was specific to this email, and now goes to "You've already registered" We’re going to change the way travelers experience the world—again. So, you won’t want to miss this sneak peek at Celebrity BeyondSM, the next ship in our award-winning Edge® Series. On Wednesday, April 28, tune in to the Celebrity Cruises YouTube channel for the Celebrity Beyond Reveal.
  10. Try this site. SunCalc.org Type in a location in the box to the left, or drag the map to the location you want to view. Enter the date in the box to the left, and used the orange dot slider at the top of the page to move the sun onver the 24 hour period
  11. Per the web site https://www.sxmprotectionplan.com/ , Cost for those for those 15 and up is $30 ($10 for less than 15): Effective 11 January 2021, a flat premium of $30 is charged for stays not exceeding 180 days. The premium is non-refundable, unless you've made a duplicate purchase or if you cancelled your trip to St. Maarten. The premium must be paid every time you re-enter St. Maarten. Wonder if this means, just once, when you arrive by plane, then again, when you return on the cruise ship? WHAT DOES IT COVER? HOSPITAL COSTS - Hospitalization expense
  12. Can't figure out how to post a link without my number, but it's 20 PUPs, not 10
  13. We found this thread, plus part 1 and 2, to be very helpful, Some if it is outdated, but still helpful overall.
