  1. I must say that I spread out my cruises among a number of cruise lines. Before the virus, we started to check out the lines that are the "next level up" like HAL, Celebrity, and Princess. If the first cruise is an indication, they may better suit our needs than the larger, more crowded ships.
  2. If your hotel is in FLL, use SAS or a similar service to MIA pier.
  3. We are booked for July and final payment is approaching. I am being an optimist and assuming that normal life and cruises will resume by then. Our reservation includes the 4 perks. Is Celebrity making cash (or credit card) refunds if a cruise is cancelled, or is it only FCC? I assume that any rebookings will be at the price and perks being offered at the time of booking. Is this correct?
  4. Based on his shows, I would not have expected to see him on a cruise.
  5. I am already booked with a premium beverage package, unlimited wifi, prepaid gratuities, and OBC that I don't know how to spend. I don't need trinkets and shirts from the ship stores. A cabin upgrade would be nice though. The July cruise seems to be selling very well, so only a mass exodus at final payment will make the possibility revelant.
  6. Since most price drops are inside of the final payment window, it would be difficult to tell the price drop is due to corona virus cancellations or just to fill unsold cabins.
  7. Had a midship cove balcony on the Breeze. Loved it. Shady and more private.
  8. I agree with many of your feelings. (see the comments above in red) NCL does seem to be the champion of fine print, upcharges, and inflated "prices" for "free" stuff to inflate the gratuities. In fact, gratuities are included for "free" beverage packages on many other lines. You do need to know the ever changing rules of the game before booking and check them again before boarding. It becomes quite tiring. It's up to you if it is enough for you to move on. It hasn't made me leave completely, but it has made us look more closely at other lines.
  9. It depends on whether school is in session. Two weeks sounds like a long school break in March, at least here in PA. I would be surprised if there are a lot of kids on the sailing, but there will be some.
  10. We are sailing to Newport and plan to visit the Breakers. I can't see the tour taking all day and we are looking for recommendations of other things to do.
  11. I will have both the $300 nonrefundable OBC perk and OBC from a TA, which I am told is generally refundable. Which will Celebrity deduct first for purchases?
  12. Several weeks ago I booked a Summit cruise with the 4 perks promotion. The only perk that shows on the cruise planner is the OBC. It does not show the unlimited internet, premium beverage package, or the prepaid tips. However, the site keeps trying to get me to use the OBC to purchase items that I already have. Is this typical? When can I expect to see the perks on my cruise planner?
