  1. I believe all sailings that were previously on Crystal will now be transferred to the new ship.
  2. Yes we did. Sounds very exciting. We sail on the first cruise on 6 March 2021 and hope we can sail as we are travelling from Brazil. We did sail on the Neo Romantica about 4 or 5 years ago but for some reason I can't remember much. Old age or the drink package I suspect. For some reason though I couldn't log into the booking to see which cabin I had been assigned. Did anyone have any joy with that or I wonder if they are still working on it?
  3. We are due to sail on Preziosa on 5 December from Rio but, as you say, I don't think the virus will improve quickly enough in Brazil for it to go ahead. I hope I'm wrong though. Balance isn't due until early October so we have a bit of time to review and make a decision.
  4. We are in Brazil too (MT) and booked on Preziosa in December. I checked this morning and all the booking appears to be the same. I'm wondering if the ships will arrive here at all if the pandemic doesn't peak here soon. Balance due in October.
  5. Weird for them ha ha. Thanks for the reply 😉👍
  6. We are in a similar cabin on Preziosa next December. It may be a stupid question 😁 but is it a walkway past the window or is it closed off? I don't want to scare anyone when opening the curtains in the morning. Thanks
  7. I just upgraded to a suite with balcony for our sailing in March 2021. I quite like the idea of priority boarding plus the bottle of sparkling wine on embarkation and a few other benefits that I can't remember off the top of my head but they are listed on their website under onboard experiences/concierge.
  8. We sail on March 10 and received cabin details today. We booked an Inside Bella Guarantee and received a Fantastica balcony cabin so very happy with that.
  9. We are about 5 short for our repositioning cruise from Rio on Fantasia March 9th. Just three weeks to go.
  10. I'm going to have to look again now 😁 Did you travel as a couple and did you find socialising onboard easy enough as I noted they said the passengers were 80% greek?
  11. Coincidentally I was watching them Friday night. It's very different to the kind of ships we are used to but, as they say in the video, it is the itinerary that we are going for rather than the ship itself. The ship looks fine but the bars reminded me a little of those on a ferry across the Irish sea and rather brightly lit. It may have been like that just when they were filming. We are not going to watch the Egypt one as want to keep some things back for when we travel 😁
  12. I'm not sure it does. I think I read somewhere it is only S, SB and GS that qualify.
  13. We always eat late but generally miss the shows because of the getting ready thing especially on port days 😁
  14. No, apologies I wasn't clear enough, for a 6:30pm seating the doors will close around 6:45pm. They will get a bit sniffy if you walk in after that. I know where you are coming from with the teenage girls so you should be able to switch to the late seating as soon as you get on board if you go to see the Maitre D in the restaurant. The problem you will have is the early show time is likely to be 6:30 I think and so you still have the issue of getting the girls ready as what generally happens is late diners go straight from the theatre to the restaurant.
  15. Hi, The restaurant doors will be closed around 10 - 15 minutes after the scheduled dining time as it is not like anytime dining. We were late once due to a friend we were travelling with getting lost on the ship and were given a lecture at the table by the Maitre D. The shows are on twice to accommodate the two dining times.
