  1. When I send off a request, I do so via email and attach my statement. I seem to hear back from them in under a week, sometimes the next day. But I was always under the impression that my statement must be dated 90 days or less of the sail date to qualify. I have never sent in a statement a year in advance. But from input here, it appears early submissions are being accepted. Suzi
  2. Will Royal Caribbean continue to offer the shareholder benefit? I know they recently had their annual meeting. Just curious. Thanks, Suzi Sent from my I3123 using Forums mobile app
  3. I went on a tour to China in March 2019. But my 10 year visa is in my old expired passport. So if they check my passport it won't have a record of my visit. Just saying checking passports aren't a foolproof way of telling who has been and who has not.
  4. It's got an electric pick-up via battery. You hear nothing. It's made for travel. My husband has another acoustic travel guitar that also has a pickup for an amplifier but seldom takes that one. The travel guitar he takes on a cruise has a neck that folds down and fits into a backpack. It's awesome.
  5. My husband can plug his earphones into his acoustic travel guitar. Only he can hear it. He's never had any issues but many people are curious.
  6. Hi there... I began this thread. We are in Thailand and before this cruise in May, we are going scuba diving in the Philippines two weeks prior. Luckily we have low cost flights to Tokyo the day before. We are flexible and can travel back to North America at anytime. But the Millennium would be our first choice. Thailand has things very much under control. As does most of South East Asia. But I personally wouldn't go to Singapore as the Chinese for better or worse can't come into Thailand. Many are heading to Singapore and Myanmar as they aren't being allowed to remain in Thailand. Can't blame them for not wanting to go back to China. My concern really is more with our departure and arrival date that could be affected by changes happening now and the need to get the ship back to North America. We will be heading back to Asia on the Millennium in September after our visit to the US.
  7. This is the OP... I live in Asia so I am not anymore concerned than anyone else here in Thailand. There are discussions here by Healthcare professionals that this virus could be a concern here until June. I am not talking about the US where it seems things are under better control. I will be heading to North America on the Millennium. We have some US news coverage via international stations like the BBC and stuff online. I was really more curious how things are shaping up there in the US as opposed to Asia where I am. No, I won't be canceling my cruise. It's heading to North America, not Asia. I am sure Celebrity and my US based cruise agent will keep me posted as to my cruises status. Suzi
  8. Just curious what impact the coronavirus will have on sailings departing Asia to North America in the coming months as ships return for their Alaska season. Currently there is a lot of hysteria (some valid concerns some not) but only in the coming months will we learn the real ramifications this will have on travel to and from Asia, not necessarily China. I live in Thailand where the country is bracing for more virus related illness in the coming months. Due to its proximity, tourism from China has been on the rise. At the moment the few cases seem to be contained but with a two week long incubation period it's hard to know what will happen. People from affected areas in China refuse to go back. They aren't showing symptoms so they are leaving Thailand and heading elsewhere in Asia. Many are heading to Japan and other destinations. That's OK for us in Thailand. But not so good for Japan. According to what we are hearing it won't be OK to travel (to China) till June. We are scheduled to take the Millennium to Vancouver in May. We do this sailing every year along with many Chinese families heading home to Canada, most returning after extended stays in China. Just curious how things will shape up this spring. What do you think?
  9. Taking the Millennium across to Vancouver in May. Anyone know if Graeme will be back as CC host?
  10. Would love current info on Millennium. Will Graeme be the CCH on the transpacific crossing to Japan. Heard Steve Gayda will be on the Crossing. Who will captain the Millennium next month. TIA Suzi
  11. We will be on the 24 Mar 19 Eclipse and I was wondering who is the Captain's Club Host? Thanks.
  12. I noticed that on our last voyage, our cruise card had "Pearl" under Elite. What the heck is "Pearl"? Sent from my Z981 using Forums mobile app
