  1. Or, perhaps I can use my power for good and not evil. If you know someone you dislike, who is scheduled to go on a Celebrity cruise, you can tell me and I can book the same cruise! - Joel
  2. To me the terms of travel as specified just make it a huge and unpredictable risk to cruise any time soon. If you convert to coronavirus positive, or even if the cruise line uses is "sole discretion" that it thinks you may be a risk or it thinks that you have not complied with policies as the cruise line sees it, then the cruise line can disembark you then and there. You are then responsible for getting home, and how can you do that? If you are disembarked on an island somewhere, how can you fly? What can you do? To me, the problem is not the restrictions that may be imposed
  3. Perhaps the cancellations stem from using SJ as a port for embarkation / disembarkation? Maybe the cruise line was the port location for embarkation / disembarkation to be at a location where an affected passenger can be handled with a more developed land-side infrastructure? - Joel
  4. A lot we all have to be grateful for. I do not troll on social media often, but found this passage there: "This 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with her hair fashionably coiffed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home yesterday. Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready. As she maneuvered her walke
  5. Once upon a time, an increasingly long time ago, we took a cruise on Celebrity Infinity. It was 2018. We booked a future cruise while onboard. It was to be our first Azamara cruise, for caribbean and Mexico, December of 2019, for what I thought was a really good deal. Later, Azamara emailed that the cruise was cancelled. But, they offered to let us book another cruise at the same good fare. That resulted in reservation #2. We chose a cruise for similar dates that would have us visit Cuba. Then, in early / mid 2019, the US government decided we could not go from an American port to Cuba
  6. Anyone been on it? Is there any elevator access or do you have to use the stairs to access it? Any comments about it, in comparison to retreat sundeck area on other ships? - Joel
  7. Give it all some time. When we hit the new steady state, probably a few years down the line, see what lanes are most open to what destinations. There will still be pathways worth pursuing ... somewhere, in some ways. - Joel
  8. I had FCC from a cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale that got cancelled March 2020. I actually cancelled as COVID began, when X started offering 100% FCC, unfortunately shortly before they changed to offering 125% FCC vs refund. Anyway, I used that FCC to chose a 7 night cruise 10/31/2021 on Summit out of Puerto Rico. Now, that has been cancelled and I am told I can use that same FCC to book any cruise 12/2021 - 4/2022. Here is the question: I kinda think whatever I choose (even if I stick to a 7 night offering), it's a crap shoot if that sails or not, so is my selection really just a p
