  1. We just booked a cruise on the Constellation from Tampa in November/2020. The pricing was difficult to understand since we have not cruised on Celebrity for almost two years. The Celebrity vacation planner explained there was a non-refundable deposit price, a refundable deposit price and a refundable deposit price with two perks. Since I had booked a cruise over one year ago for January 2020 which included one perk and had a $50pp deposit which was refundable, I wanted to transfer that booking to our Connie cruise. Not possible anymore, according to our vacation planner. It's gotten very confusing to determine which price to go with especially on a cruise which is over a year away.
  2. Tampa has one of the great sailaways that should be experienced at least once. While it can sometimes be a bit chilly (only requires a light jacket or sweater) sailing under the Skyway Bridge, it is worth it. Tampa has a vibrant downtown, Ybor City is close to the port, and St Petersburg is similar to a small European city with it's museums and restaurants. I would come in early to enjoy all that the Tampa/St Pete area has to offer. http://www.stpete.org/visiting_the_city/index.php
  3. We had a TA booked in November of 2016 and my husband's recovery from a minor procedure would effect the enjoyment of our trip which was past final payment. We spoke to our online TA who intervened with Celebrity. They allowed us to book another cruise and apply the full amount to the next cruise which had to cost more than the TA and had to be booked within 30 days of the TA sailing. While it's not their policy to do this, I think they will sometimes work with you to find an equitable solution if there is a good reason for doing so. In 1992 I had a cruise booked with another line and my first husband died suddenly two weeks prior to the cruise. Since he was in his early forty's, we had not bought travel insurance. My travel agent attempted to have the full payment applied to another cruise much later or transferred to family members. The other cruise line would not budge so I lost over half of the cost of the cruise. You never know what they will do!
