  1. Appreciate the replies.. will be there early June so we should have 3 hours of daylight..
  2. The ship will be making its required stop in Victoria BC, Canada on the last full day of the cruise from 5:30 P.M to midnight... Their famous gardens are closed then.. Other than going to dinner, is there any reason to get off the ship at that hour?
  3. Thanks; appreciate the reply and detailed info..
  4. sailing to Alaska next year ..looking at mid ship hump balcony starboard side...does anyone know which balcony is larger, 9264, 9266, 9268, or 9270? Thanks.
  5. Agreed. I would hope that by the time we are cruising, September 2021, we should have a pretty good idea of what to expect...
  6. Well I hope you're right.. that would be an ideal scenario to cruise again
  7. So, to be clear you are suggesting that if someone gets sick on the second day the cruise continues as planned ; the sick people stay quarantined and we can just continue as if everything is okay..??
  8. I agree with a mandated vaccine at least as it pertains to cruising... However my possible scenario is a little different.. regardless of whether we get a vaccine or not if we cruise and ONE person gets the virus aren't we in the same exact situation where all passengers will be quarantined? We have a cruise booked for September 2021 and honestly I can't see any scenario where we will be 100% comfortable regarding a possible quarantine situation. Really hope I'm wrong about that.
  9. Thanks a lot for your response and also hcat's response.. very helpful information
  10. We always book late reserved main dining rooms and usually try a few specialty restaurants also... We are booked on Apex in September 2021 and have chosen late dining.. however, we want to try all the main dining rooms for the different exclusive menu items.. do we switch to select dining, can we make those reservations in advance or do we have to do it when on board?
  11. My experience has been that with the exception of one time out of the 15 or so cruises that we've taken, the cruise line pricing has been considerably more then pricing found through my t/a when the t/a had a group rate; when there was no group rate available my t/a was always able to give me a better deal whether it was through pricing or onboard credit or combination of both.. by the way the cruise I referenced in my original post is for a European Cruise in September, 2021 and I booked it through a travel agent right here on Long Island.
  12. Thanks for your post. It definitely was a group rate.. I am aware of that philosophy and always ask my t/a because if he does not have a group rate for a cruise I am looking at, I have to "shop elsewhere".
  13. We booked an October 2021 cruise to Europe a few weeks ago through our T/A, which at the time was $800 less than Celebrity's pricing.. That same booking today through Celebrity directly is now $2,000 more than we paid.. Careful out there... You must monitor pricing continually....
