  1. I find it strange that Harmony TA for April 2021 (which we have already booked at the end of November) is not showing for booking now either on UK or US website.
  2. Also waiting for Odyssey Fall TA for 2021. According to what has been loaded to the system so far, the last Med sailing in from October 19 2021 returning October 28 2021, and then the next sailing is November 28 2021 for 6 nights in the Caribbean, so there's a whole month of itinerary missing for this ship.
  3. I think the date is today 16 December, last week in UK we were seeing a booking for Odyssey in Europe leaving (I think) April 30th 2021, but that has since disappeared from the website, and similar situation has happened with Harmony TA for April 2021, we and others have Harmony Eastbound booked leaving Port Canaveral on April 4th arriving in Barcelona on April 16th, but that has also vanished from UK website, but the Westbound TA on Harmony for October 2021 is still showing.
  4. Thanks Turtles06, I did send an email to the address at the bottom of the sign up page: meet_and_mingle@cruisecritic.com, but have now sent similar email to the one you have provided. Email has been sent Kat, hopefully they find the cause of the problem. I have managed to sign up using the link that Kernow provided as being the correct link, and it did work!!
  5. This link still has not been fixed for UK members. Is there anyway this could be looked into. Thanks
  6. A number of folks have booked these cabins because of the perks, and now they are being taken away from them, after they have agreed to the 'contract' between themselves and Royal. Customers are not allowed to changed their bookings without penalty (especially in the UK), once a deposit is paid, so why should this be different for the Company. Contracts should be honoured. We have a Central Park balcony booked on Allure for the TA in November 2020, when we booked in December 2019, we had the Deluxe Drinks Package included in our booking, so this change does not directly affect us, but I believe in fairness, which this isn't. Our sailing is 14 nights, so $50 per cabin, does not go anywhere near to cover the cost of anyone who has booked a Boardwalk, (unsure of prices of wine etc for Central Park perks on offer) which was to include the Soda Package (£224.74 for 2 persons at current booking prices), and then there's the lunch price to be added to that figure. So irrespective of how long the cruise is for everyone is being given $50 per cabin, whether it's a 3 night sailing or 14 + night sailing, this also seems an unfair compensation. This should all have been worked on pro rata sailing nights, or everyone who had booked before the announcement, had their original bookings honoured.
  7. Hi, I have never hired a scooter for using onboard the ships, but I usually take my own, which is a GoGo sport (mine is the 4 wheel version). I have used this on numerous occasions onboard, it manages the ramps on and off the ships, but there's always some of the staff there to ensure there are no problems getting on and off the ship. The corridors are easy to manoeuvre, even with the trolley carts sitting outside cabins, there's usually still enough room to get past. The only problem I've had is turning it to get it into the cabin (we don't always have accessible cabins), but it will go in, and there's room inside the cabin for moving around if the bed is next to the balcony. If you decide to take it apart, that is quite easy too, the model I have breaks into 5 separate pieces and makes it easier for storing in the cabin. Hope you have a good trip.
  8. I've just logged onto our account, and we only booked this on April 5, and there has been nothing there since we opened our account with them, but low and behold tonight there is an email dated April 5!!!!
  9. This has obviously not been updated, the link still shows Getaway going into drydock on May 10, there is nowhere it shows it going into drydock on May 7th, or 8th.(2 days earlier than scheduled).
  10. Thank you for your reply. If you order the water package, is it bottles of premium water or 'basic' water that they give you?
  11. We are sailing on NCL for the first time in a couple of weeks, we were supposed to be on Royal's Oasis of the Seas TA, until the ship was damaged by the crane. We have the Premium Drink package as a perk, but if I want to buy water from the bars etc, can anyone tell me how much it is, and what size of bottle they would sell. I will probably buy a water package, but just wondered how much the bars sell it for? Thanks
  12. Dial 7 is quoting $121.75 not including tolls, congestion tax, tips. Our price with Rideways is $145.14 and that is the total price we will pay. They are all quoting roughly the same prices. I think Rideways is an agent (affiliated to Booking.com), so they may even use Dial 7 for the transportation There are 4 adults with all luggage and my collapsible scooter, so we require a van.
  13. Hi I have joined the roll call, but haven't had much time to browse through everything so far, I'm hoping this week to have a proper look. This week has been busy cancelling everything we had planned for our Oasis trip, and trying to put our new things into force since booking this trip on Friday. Look forward to meeting you onboard, and we'll be at the M & G with a drink in our hands.
  14. Thanks for all of your input, it certainly helped. We now have a hotel booked near the cruise terminal, and have booked a shuttle through Rideways part of Booking.com, which will be large enough to accommodate my mobility scooter and our luggage (the scooter collapses for travelling in vehicles), and have made a booking again with Rideways to take us from the hotel to the cruise port the following morning. I try to walk around the ship with just a walking stick/cane, unless I have a very bad day and would have to use the scooter, but I require it if we get off at ports and for long treks through Airports and around town/cities etc. We wanted to try to get close to the cruise port, just in case the traffic was heavy on Saturday on the way to the ship. (we remember what it was like on our last visit in 1996 to NY, and there's a lot more traffic now than then!!). Looking forward to our cruise in 3 weeks and trying a new cruise company. Thanks again for the information
  15. Thanks for the info. I'm not sure if we'd have time for a lot of touring, since we don't arrive until 13.00, so probably early to late afternoon, by the time we would get to the city. Just somewhere close to eateries and near the port
