  1. It’s just a computer error caused by the change in final payment date, doesn’t need paying and will vanish off your account eventually, mine did.
  2. My cruise was in June, yesterday I got an email direct from Princess (I book direct) telling me my cruise was cancelled, OP have you not received this email? Presumably your TA has it and should forward it to you.
  3. More likely to be an error knowing Celebrity.
  4. These restrictions won’t last forever, at the moment, Covid 19 is new and there’s no vaccine but they will develop one and people will also start to build up immunity to it like they have with the flu. In time it will become another “type” of flu. At the moment a very large number of people have it all at once, medical services are over stretched and these measures are brought in to stop it spreading too quickly, it’s all very new territory. The article that was linked says "The President's objective is for us to make cruise lines safer, even as we work with the cruise
  5. When does the Norway only one go? If it’s June then you will have a couple of days when you have no sunset, which is really interesting. If you aren’t likely to be able to do this type of cruise again then I would say do the Iceland and Norway one because both are amazing to see. In Iceland do the golden circle tour, the waterfalls and geysers combined with the beautiful Norwegian fjords makes for a great cruise. Bergen has lovely markets old houses and a great view from the funicular. Olden is very pretty and it’s possible to do a gentle hike to see a glacier, you see
  6. I’ve done both, could you tell me the itinerary for each one you are considering? Thanks
  7. Yes I agree but the person said we had “left Europe” which we have not, he/she was clearly confusing the European Union with the land mass.
  8. Princess cruises just cancelled all cruises until May 11th, Viking also cancelled until May as well, I wonder if others will follow.
  9. Oslo and Alesund as well 😢
  10. The UK is part of Europe😳it’s just not a member of the European Union, a very different thing, geographically it’s not changed.
  11. Oslo and Alesun have stopped them as well since this was written. Not much good for a 14 night Norway cruise we are booked on but understandable in the circumstances. https://www.forbes.com/sites/davidnikel/2020/03/11/cruise-ship-passengers-banned-from-bergen-as-coronavirus-cases-rise-in-norway/#77687ef348a5
  12. When I booked for my June cruise the deposit was only £50 per person. My final payment date was March 15th and this was them extended to April 14th under the new terms. Today I noticed my planner has in red a notice that I need to pay £200 more deposit TODAY or my booking will be cancelled! Has anyone else had this? I’m not sure if I will be able to go (underlying health issues) and so I don’t want to pay more money as I’m in the UK and my deposit is non refundable.
  13. Maybe you should name them so we can avoid giving them business in the future! How do you know this is the case, hasn’t the ship just docked? How would they even know if a guest is from the regal, unless the hotel was booked via Princess.
  14. I think the point is you are guaranteed a lounger, whereas on Celebrity loungers in the solarium can be like hens teeth. We’ve booked a cabana for our first HAL cruise on 1st Dec because we could only get an inside accessible cabin, so the money we saved paid for a cabana and it will be our “balcony”
  15. I’ve done a few cruises in Europe in November and it’s usually better than it has been this past week or so. I don’t know about the TA itself but for Europe certainly.
