  1. OBC from my TA is always refundable. Whatever is not is credited to our credit card.
  2. We did a b2b South America/Antarctica cruise on Azamara in Jan 2020. It was a wonderful cruise. The scenery and wildlife are amazing. The good thing about the b2b was that we had two chances to get to the Falkland Islands and we got in once. We were sitting in a bar just above the waterline one evening and realized crew members were hanging over the railing. We are experienced cruisers so we rushed outside to see what they were seeing. We had no coats or cameras but watched whales breaching and penguins leaping right beside us.
  3. We sailed in 5110 on the Star and never had water issues. Loved the location.
  4. The one category upgrade can be found in the Captain’s Club Terms and Conditions here: https://www.celebritycruises.com/captains-club/enroll One-Category Upgrade One-category upgrade requests must be made at the time of booking and apply only for upgrades within the supercategory, depending on availability.

  5. Only If you have had a severe allergic reaction or an immediate allergic reaction—even if it was not severe—to any ingredient in an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, you should not get either of the currently available mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna). https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/specific-groups/allergies.html
  6. When you order, just say you have the premium package. They will us the premium liquors.
  7. Any kind of regular daytime clothes - no jammies or swim suits - work in the world cafe. We found the Northern Lights cruise to be more casual everywhere because we had to travel with so many cold weather clothes.
  8. The benefit of smaller ships is that they can sail up the Neva River and can dock close to the Hermitage if space is available rather than the docking at the industrial ports is further from the city.
  9. Pricewise, doing the train excursion on your own is less expensive than booking the Viking excursion. We elected to do the Viking excursion because they handled the luggage. I think we had to put our luggage the night before and it was loaded onto a truck. We met in the lobby with our hand luggage and the coordinator walked us over to the train station, got us in to the right cars, and took care of our needs on the train. In our case, we we were bussed directly to the ship. Our luggage was already in our cabins.
  10. What he said! We are also Elite Plus on Celebrity.
  11. Elite Plus on Celebrity. Oceania food is better and higher quality.
  12. We have two cruises booked on Celebrity in Oct 2022. My travel agent offered me two prices - all included or with no perks. Just for the record, we like having the drink package, WiFi, and prepaid grats. The OBC, not so much. I did the math. For the first cruise, it made sense to book no perks because it was cheaper to buy the perks separately that we’d use.. The second cruise, it was cost effective to pay the fare with the perks.
  13. Norway is a wonderful place to cruise. We went in mid-May and had unusual fantastic weather. The only negative is that the waterfalls are still frozen and things at higher elevations are closed due to snow. I would go as late in the summer as possible.
