  1. I just download Chrome on my laptop and was finally able to sign into my Celebrity account. Thanks!
  2. What did you do to sign in? I have had the same problem for months and when I contacted X they told me they are working on the problem. I use edge as my web browser. Thanks,
  3. You can always eat in the MDR in the Select (anytime) dinning room on the lower level. If your friends are in the select dining seating, you can join them there if you desire. If you are on one of the M class ships you can order and of the MDR menu items in Blu at night too.
  4. My TA told me that the infinity will be refurbished in 2022 at the earliest according to Celebrity. We have two cruises booked on her next year.
  5. We sailed exclusively on HAL for the last 10 years however we are switching to Celebrity Infinity for our two cruises next year. Our last cruise in 2019 on the Noordam turned us off probably forever with HAL Celebrity has added so many more perks for the higher class of cabins, something that HAL has not nor will match. We are booked in Aqua class cabins for both cruises next year which provides us with exclusive use of the Blu restaurant for all of our dinners. Much smaller venue without the huge crowds and slow service of the MDR. Last year we booked a Signature suite on the Noordam and other than a larger cabin and bathroom we got zero perks or amenities over what any other balcony cabin received. We got great deals on both of our Infinity cruises with the 4 Perks package that is now less cost than the current cabins without the 4 perks. Our cruises will now be almost totally inclusive without the terrible Nickle and diming that HAL has done to us in the past.
  6. Many insurance companies also have coverage exclusions as a result of a pandemics, acts of war and terrorism. If a company becomes insolvent due to the current pandemic, coverage may not happen under these policies even if there is no exclusion for bankruptcy.
  7. Why speculate in this forum? Just contact your TA or X directly for their answer, then you will know for sure. The other option is wait to see if you can buy an upgrade to a C3 suite. Good luck either way!
  8. I do not see how the CDC or even CLIA has any authority over any cruise ship not flagged in the U.S. or not sailing in U.S waters and ports. Unless a cruise ship is only 50% of capacity Social Distancing is nearly impossible in the MDR.
  9. After 2 cruises and one Perillo tour of Italy, we would return to Southern Italy which includes Sicily, Lecce and the Amalfi coast. We also loved a week spent in Florence and would do a land tour again of the Tuscany area.
  10. Got to love the Trolls in this thread who are just salivating over their desires to see RCCL and Celebrity go bankrupt. 😁
  11. You may think you deserve it, but in reality you are not going to get it. I think the best thing for you to do is cancel the cruise and wait a year or two for the new product, this will keep you from being disappointed and having a ruined cruise. Or put on your big girl panties and be happy you are on a cruise and not one of the thousands who did not survive the Covid virus. I for one also have no sympathy for your situation.
  12. We booked two Mediterranean cruises on the Infinity next year expecting her refurbishment. We got fantastic deals on both and I do not plan on canceling. Sure I am a little disappointed but happily, we will be on two cruises and after all that has happened this year it will be a fabulous. It is not Celebrity's fault that the scheduled refurbishments got delayed and all who love Celebrity should be happy they are still in business after this disastrously disappointing year.
  13. I agree, Wirecard and their management are on the hook for the wage payments. As long as RCL paid the money to Wirecard, RCL has no exposure. It is tragic that these hard workers are not getting paid but RCL is not to blame.
  14. These are Carnival's oldest ships all built in the 1990's with very few balcony cabins other than some suites. I am surprised they haven't been retired years ago. They are used for a lot of 3, 4 and 5 night low cost cruises from smaller home ports. Celebrity has a much smaller fleet but none of her ships are as outdated as these older Carnival ships.
  15. I know that! I posted this on this board, because of concerns that Celebrity may be following RCL's lead. We have a cruise on the Infinity RT from Venice next May and one of the reasons for this cruise was wanting to spend a couple of days in Venice. Venice is one of the few places in Italy we have not visited. With a 2 hour plus bus trip to Ravenna from the Venice airport we will have to add an extra day of travel to get to the ship on time and still see what we want in Venice. It also complicates the return flights home after the cruise that could require an extra night in a Venice hotel.
