  1. Brilliance. For the lovely outside windjammer. For all the glass and sea views everywhere. But most of all for the aft balconies.
  2. Brilliance Deck 9 aft. First cruise on RC. Snap. Apart from the cabin - we were in 9660 😁 Ours was way back in 2008, we've sailed on many more RC ships since then but nothing beats that first time with that amazing view on the best ship we have ever sailed on. Re reserving shows - they didn't do it way back then but in Covid times it could be different.
  3. In normal times a cruise round the British Isles would definitely not be on my bucket list. But oh my goodness 🙃 MSC Virtuosa embarkation from Liverpool. I am seriously tempted. Come on RC please announce Harmony from Liverpool too.
  4. It took just days for them to refund in full my deposits for 3 cabins for our August cruise on Odyssey from Rome. So its not always about the sailing date.
  5. Hi Sunshine please could you tell me where the itineraries and prices are listed? We are very interested in booking this.
  6. A good news story to balance out all the bad. Our Odyssey cruise out of Rome in August this summer was cancelled on the 1st March. I requested a refund of my deposit for 3 cabins (£900) which I did online and received an email confirming my refund was being processed and would take 45 days. Today, 18th March I received my credit card statement and the refund was there. It was processed on the 9th March. So it took just 9 days. Amazing, I really didn't expect that.
  7. In terms of port and ease of getting from airport to ship then Barcelona is the easiest and nicest port.
  8. There is much excitement in the Lotte household. FIL 82 had his first dose of the Phizer vaccine yesterday. He got the call last week but was unable to get to the vaccination centre for that one so had to reschedule. 2nd jab is on 7th Jab. So that's one of us going cruising next year 😁
  9. The 4/5 nights on Adventure in the Med could be interesting for a b2b if they mix up the ports. But not so interesting if the 5 nighter is just an extra sea day.
  10. I could quite happily stay onboard and not get off as long as I could benefit from a few days sunshine. But as I would be sailing from the UK I would want to be heading south, somehow I don't think a 7 day cruise would be long enough. If sunshine is not top of your list then a Fjords cruise would be nice. There are plenty of fjords I would be happy to sail in and out of without stepping foot on dry land. And of course heading further north there are always the northern lights which don't require anyone getting off.
  11. On UK site October 14th 2021 12 night Southampton to Miami

  13. Thank you for replying. RC are so frustrating to deal with when there is a problem! And I used to love that bouncy happy music they play when you call them - now it drives me insane! Grr! August 2021 is a long time to wait for a confirmation invoice for a booking that was made in June 2020. All I want is to have the price I am going to be paying confirmed somewhere in writing because without a confirmation invoice I have nothing. If they are able to adjust the price at final payment - why can they not do it now? They are still going to run into the pr
