  1. We have sailed on Jewel twice both Transatlantics, (November 2017 & May 2018), we had JS cabins for both. Our November cruise we were in 1094, and I would suggest NOT to book this cabin, because it is right below the prep area for the Windjammer, and the noise from above is constant all day & night. We are not light sleepers, in fact I have a hearing disability, but the noise was unbearable, it was like a train on a railway track, with the carts trundling across the floor. We did eventually go to guest services, and they eventually allowed us to use 1054 to sleep in at night,
  2. The flights showing on Skyscanner at present leaving Manchester at 6.50am with a change in Munich and arrives in Larnaca around 15.00. or another flight with Lufthansa leaving Manchester at 6.10am changing in Frankfurt and arriving in Larnaca at 16.10. As someone else has mentioned the flight times will probably be confirmed nearer your sailing, and probably once travel begins again there could be more flights available.
  3. I fail to understand why they allow people to book in advance for MTD (my opinion and I realise others are different). To me the concept is, show up when you wish to eat, and within 10/15 mins you can be seated, it's usually quicker if you are prepared to share a table with other diners. I have always booked MTD, I'm on vacation, and don't want to be governed by the clock for our meals. We do not have prior notification of what activities are happening onboard each sailing, and we do not know what we are going to be doing from day to day. I had a similar discussion with a Maitre D'
  4. We're in the UK, and booked our flights as a package with RCG, we fly from Scotland to Barbados, and we've been charged £665 return per person, we expect the flight to go via LHR, and also think it's a BA flight, (it's too far out for confirmed times) but if the cruise is cancelled, we will have a full refund of any monies paid, and will be covered under ABTA etc.
  5. The other thing to note is that your deposit for your cancelled cruise might still be in a 'holding account' with your TA. Some TA's in UK do not pass on any monies paid for cruises straight away, there are numerous different scenarios used in the UK. If your deposit is still sitting in a 'holding' account, then RCG might not issue a FCC for the deposit, even more reason to call RCG to find out.
  6. I would call RCG and ask them for a copy of the email, detailing what options you have, and explain your Travel Agent has closed, and you don't know where the email has been sent to, and you'll now require to use a new Travel Agent. Hope you get this sorted soon
  7. I've just checked on RCCL's UK site and it's still showing there too
  8. If you hope to visit the Edinburgh Tattoo (depending on how long the ship is in port in Edinburgh), can I suggest you look to book this early, because the Tattoo can sell out very quickly.
  9. Garyjames220, Are you going to book directly with RCG, or through a Travel Agent, if a TA ensure that all monies paid are forwarded straight to RCG and not kept in a 'holding' account to be paid at a later date, because if that happens and the cruise is cancelled RCG will only refund whatever monies have actually been paid to them.
  10. Hi Ken, Is this error only for L & S using FCC's in the past couple of days, or does this refer to all L & S's using FCC that have occurred over the past ?? months? Thanks
  11. The weather in Scotland is unpredictable during June to August, and our schools take their summer break from end June to mid August, the schools in England break later. I don't know which ports you're visiting, but if Edinburgh is a port of call, you may want to keep in mind that the Edinburgh Military Tattoo takes place in August, and I know this is very popular with tourists all over, as is the Edinburgh Festival, which also makes it a busy time to visit too. If/when you sail, ensure you pack a brolly (Umbrella), and light rainproof jacket, and I'm sure you'll be fine.
  12. I did a Lift & Shift before Christmas, and cancelled my cruise planner purchases, and monies were transferred to Card within 7 days.
  13. Hi Mac What sailing have you booked, we've booked the 14 night sailing leaving on February 20 2022. Hope you, Jane and your family are all well and safe xx
  14. These interported cruises surely would be treated in a 'similar' way as people booking B2B sailings, but without the inconvenience of those staying onboard having to disembark with the other guests and go through Customs etc.
