  1. I would make your cruise reservations as soon as possible. I made my reservations for my January 2022 Princess cruise last January. The pricing has gone up considerably since then.
  2. Our cruise just changed our January schedule and replaced Grand Caymen with Costa Maya. We reserved the Almaplena for the day. The beach looks great and the price was reasonable. Has anyone spent the day there recently?
  3. On our last Princess cruise we were in Club Class. Just a few guests would show up for breakfast. We were seated at the same window table and were served by our favorite waiter every morning. It was a delightful way to start the day.
  4. I had issues for four days staying on CC. I would sign in and then it would immediately sign me out. I couldn't check notifications either. I sent an e-mail to the CC help desk and received this reply. I clered my browser's cache and now it works! I appreciated the prompt response from CC.

  5. This is good news. We are doing a b2b from Celebrity to Princess in January. Hopefully, the testing procedures will all be in place by then.
  6. We are going to be traveling for 18 days. The first leg of our journey is on Celebrity and their ships do not have self-serve laundry facilities. I will definately need to do laundry on our 10-day Princess cruise.
  7. Now that premium beverage companies are offering non-alcoholic spirts such as gin, vodka and whiskey, is it acceptable to bring them onboard? I totally understand that Celebrity might not be able to offer them as onboard selections. However, could a passenger bring them on to consume? How about non-alcoholic wines?
  8. I did find a reference to Pool cabanas in the Retreat area on Enchantment. I know that on previous sailings they were a first come/first served reservation. If I recall, the charges on the Royal were $50.00 per day on port days and $100.00 on sea days. We booked all of the sea days on the sailing.
  9. I have been searching in vain for information on renting a cabana in the adult-only Retreat area. We reserved a cabana as soon as we boarded The Royal about four years ago and found it to be delightful. We are really not looking for alot of extras. We just want a pleasent spot to spend sea days where we don't need to resort to playing the towel game. Does anyone know if this option will be available on Enchanted?
  10. That is truly memorable. We were in the Club Mini Suite with the huge corner balcony over the bridge on Princess four years ago. We had a late departure from St. Thomas and were able to have the entire meal on the balcony with the twinkling lights of the port all around us. It was magical. We are in the same stateroom for our January 2022 sailing. We have confirmed reservations for the UBD. I hope it happens.
  11. When I just checked my sailing, the only offering is breakfast. The dinner option is no longer being offered. However, my reservation still shows the following: Culinary Delights Item Type Delivery Date Price Package Purchased By Cancel Ultimate Balcony Dinner For Two Message: "WISHING YOU A WONDERFUL CRUISE!" Feb 04, 2022 $100.00 WISHING YOU A WONDERFUL CRUISE! for: Cancel Paid Cancellation Policy: You may cancel 72 hours before your cruise for full refund. Specialty Dining
  12. I booked it online before we switched to the Medallion a week ago.
  13. I just booked this on our January 29th sailing. We have totally enjoyed the UBD on a previous cruise. It was the highlight of the cruise. On our 10-night cruise, there is only one night where we are at port until 8:00pm. We made sure to book it early to secure one of the limited spaces. I hope it can happen.
  14. I would appreciate hearing what issues could be caused by establishing a separate roll call for the majority of passengers on the 18-day holiday segment who will not be ATW passengers. After perusing 527 posts on this roll call, it is apparent that ATW cruisers have issues and interests that do not pertain to passengers sailing on shorter cruises. I can totally understand separate roll call issues when the segment is in the middle of a RTW sailing. However, this segment is at the start of the RTW cruise and very few RTW passengers have chosen to sail on this portion.
  15. We just made the deposit for our first Oceania cruise. I was excited to discover that there was an existing Roll call until I realized that our 18-day cruise from Miami to San Francisco in December 2022 was the first portion of a RTW cruise. December 28, 2022 ATW 2023 MIA-SF / SF-SF and All Other Versions & Segments I look forward to participating in the roll calls for our sailings. Understandably, 99 percent of the 537 posts on this roll call are referring to the RTW aspect of cruise. Currently, just the very top suites are sold out for this sailing as well as one other category so it looks like most RTW cruisers will not even be on this sailing and will join the RTW on the SFO segment. Since it appears that the vast majority of cruisers on this segment will not be on the RTW cruise, Is it possible to start a new roll call for just the 18-day sailing?
  16. Now that non-alcoholic spirts are being offered at many fine establishments, I wonder if Celebriy offers non-alcoholic wine or spirits on their sailings. Has anyone seen non-alcoholic gin and tonics or alcohol free wines onboard Celebrity or any other cruise lines?

    Good to know. We won't count on customized service. Our next sailing on the B2B is on Princess since they offer self-laundry service, I'll plan on doing my own laundry when we board as I don't want to take the risk of having a favorite piece ruined. However, DH's can go in the freebie bags.

    Great question! We were wondering the same thing as we have a B2B January cruise. How big are those bags?
  19. We are with you! On our January Apex cruise we are sailing in Aqua Class. We are leaving the Apex to join the Enchantment in Club Class. We really enjoy the additional benefits that both Aqua and Club Class offer.
  20. We were in the forward M6 Corner Room on a Carribbean Royal Cruise. When we asked the room steward about the restrictions he said that if the seas were that rough you wouldn't want to be out on the balcony anywhere on the ship. We had amazing views from your huge picture window in the bedroom and sliding glass doors on the separate living roomom. We also totally enjoyed watching the offcers navigate coming into and out of port. Since we were in the Caribbean, we arranged for a private dinner on our balcony while we were in port in St. Thomas. It was the best $100.00 we ever spent.
  21. I totally agree. I can't imagine that someone with a 7-night cruise would exchange it for a three and four night B2B. Imagine going through all those Covid protocals? I had scheduled a September cruise on MSC that I cancelled. Frankly, their reluctance to sail with the CDC's vaccinnation guidelines and go with trials so they might accommodate more unvaccinated passengers makes me question sailing on them in the future.
  22. That is good to know. Their honeymoon has already been delayed by a year. They were so looking forward to the YC experience. Hopefully, they will get an opportunity to go again.
  23. Having had two honeymoon cruises cancelled with MSC, my son and his wife have decided to just go to Aruba this July. They were really disapointed to not sail. They took the future cruise credit on the initial 2020 cruise and applied it to their July 2021 cruise. They were told that they could receive a credit card refund by their TA. However, this notice doesn't indicate that will happen. I wonder???
  24. You could be right, Miched. We once shared a table with a couple who purchased the cheapest stateroom they could find on a RCCL 7-day Caribbean sailing to cruise from mid-January to mid-March. They were proud of the fact that they did not spend one extra cent onboard during those three months. They never left the ship. They had been sailing on the same ship for three years. To make matters even stranger, they got amazing service, wine and dinner with the officers because of the hundreds of days that they had sailed. We asked the maitre de to change our table and he begged us to stay as the other six tablemates had already bailed. The obnoxious man demanded that his food be served all at once and was in and out of the dining room in 45 minutes. The maitre de kept us happy with excellent wine and amazing service. It wouldn't surprise me if they didn't tip.
  25. Doug...that news rots... Hopefully, you will be all over your reatment and be ready to sail in January. Take care!
