  1. Barron isn't wrong, as it was simply reporting the findings of Macquarie Research.
  2. I'm equally surprised that you would object. The ship already tracks you with the onboard security camera system, so if they want to know where you have been during the course of the day, that information is already available to them. But do you really think that ships' crews have so much free time on their hands that they are going to concern themselves with the movements of a passenger unless there is a valid reason for doing so? All the wristband does is provide the information in a format that is more readily searched. If someone it determined to have COVID, it would be a monumental task to try to use the video footage to determine which other passengers have been in close contact. With the wrist bands, that type of search is quite quick and easy. Conversely, the wristbands are far less intrusive than videos as they track where you go but not what you do.
  3. A confirmation indicating that the departure will be from "Venice, Rome" doesn't provide great confidence. SMH.
  4. You mean to say that I won't be allowed to bring my personal swabber along? Well, that's a real deal breaker!
  5. Just check out the deck plans for the ship you are interested in. For example:
  6. Wouldn't that would work against Celebrity? The more points out there, the higher the discounts and the lower the profits.
  7. If Celebrity really is contemplating a move to AI, one has to wonder about the logic of running these PUP contests or offering double points.
  8. Anyone following this thread closely can soon recognize those contributors whose posts are knowledge-based and those whose posts are riddled with nonsense. Those not enjoying this thread have plenty of others to choose from.
  9. I agree, still very few solo cabins, but they've added 40 between the Edge (16) and the Apex (24), and 4 more are being added to the Silhouette. As for definition, it would have been far easier to state that the promo didn't apply to solo cruisers if that's what they meant. I'm pretty sure that when they say "single-occupancy staterooms", they are referring cabin capacity, not the actual number of occupants for a given booking.
  10. They need to read the fine print again. It states that "Single-occupancy staterooms are not eligible for this Offer", so if you book one of the solo cabins, you aren't eligible. But if you book a multi-passenger cabin and pay the supplement, there's nothing in the offer prohibiting a solo passenger from acquiring the double points.

  12. Are you suggesting that cruise lines should have different safety protocols for full charters than they do for regular sailings?
  13. Hopefully by September things will have improved to the point where you can sail as planned. Sounds like a great b2b combo!
  14. It would have been more accurate had I said that TUI and MSC have been front runners in the restart of cruising and both have disallowed b2b bookings. There has been a lot of talk about other lines following suit, but we still don't know what the future holds for Celebrity or many other lines. The Costa incident may well influence them further in adopting this protocol. Bear in mind that your ability to book a b2b doesn't mean that it will happen. Since March, Celebrity has allowed people to book cruises knowing full well that they would have to be cancelled. As a case in point, when the Canadian government closed our ports to cruise ships on March 13, Celebrity continued to take booking for Hawaiian, Alaskan and East Coast cruises requiring Canadian ports of call. Consider too that at the restart, cruises will definitely sail with a smaller passenger load. We don't know when things will restart, but there is absolutely no doubt that more people are currently booked for these cruises than will be allowed to sail. That's simply another example of being able to book not necessarily meaning being able to sail.
