  1. I really cannot believe what a total cluster this is. We moved our 3/21 Silhouette cruise to Edge for 3/22 at a premium, even though the cabin itself was kind of a downgrade. We love Silhouette but were excited for another Edge cruise, esp at 10 nights. Reading the threads and the X FB group I learned of this change. Our Edge cruise on the X site is now Silhouette. Neither we nor our travel agent have received notification which is absolutely unacceptable. I've asked the TA to get things updated as it seems it may be for less money, and to secure our cabin. But then I go into the
  2. Of course - Secrets Akumal.....mmmmm.....swim up rooooooooms......
  3. We couldn't deal with the uncertainties as the minute the weather starts getting cold, and winter is in view, we need to start dreaming about our March vacation. We cancelled, rebooked for 2022 (Lift and Shift was a major downgrade for us), and are booking a splurgy AI in Riviera Maya - the splurge because - #2020. We are really sad because we want to support the cruise lines, we want to bring funds to the ports, but we also need to consider our own mental well-being. That being said, the AI is dreamy and we're very excited about it.
  4. We cancelled our March 2021 cruise bc the not knowing is getting too frustrating. And we don't want to compromise our experience, i.e., shortened cruise, change of ports, cruise line only excursions, etc. We rebooked for 2022 (Lift and Shift was a downgrade), and are going an AI instead. We feel relieved that we made a decision and actually have something less ambiguous to look forward to.
  5. Okay, quick service here. You know New Englanders are really passionate about their lobster rolls so everyone has a different, passionate opinion. We prefer our lobster in Maine so we don't have an opinion about CT. But here are some our friends have suggested around Mystic. Check them out online to see if atmosphere is what you're looking for. - Latitude 41 - Seaview Snack Bar - Ford's Lobster - Dog Watch Cafe - Engine Room Also if you like oysters and would consider a ~30 minute drive to Matunuck, Rhode Island, highly recommend Matunuck Oyster Bar.

  6. Sorry - Duplicate post! Well, we finally cancelled our 2021 cruise bc the Lift and Shift (or Lift and ShAft as I now call it) only offered us a downgrade - even though the identical itinerary was available moving us from S Class to E Class. They wouldn't even consider it. Whattttt. We're excited about an AI in Mexico. Our TA is amazing and also a friend of 20+ years and we thoroughly trust her. She's with an excellent consortium. She's made a few recommendations that we're reviewing. She says Mexico is doing an excellent job re: cleanliness, distancing, etc. Currently at 50%

  8. Following up on a few days of frustration - We are still stumped as to how X could "suggest" we move our 2021 reservation from S to M class, different itinerary, and not receive a partial refund, more OBC or an upgrade. YET, when our wonderful TA suggested they move us into into downgraded cabin on Edge Class for the identical 2022 itinerary, that wasn't in any way an option, not even for more money. There's plenty of availability. So, we had no choice but to cancel. We're glad not to have to worry about the state of the cruising world for some time, sad we won't b
  9. Why do you think Mexico won't happen? Due to your own concerns or due to resort issues?
  10. We're in the throes of deciding if we should do the March '21 cruise we have been craving desperately instead of unappealing lift and shift options. We were on the Silhouette last year when everything changed. It caused us a lot of anxiety. While we really really really want this cruise to happen, and while we are healthy, cautious, etc., the thought of a possible quarantine due to others possibly not being as stringent is what has us conflicted. Agree with poster above sharing how much more we know about the virus, how much better we can treat it, how much better we are avoiding it, but
  11. We're looking at DR too, if Aruba doesn't work out. That pricing sounds way more reasonable too, although the Aruba AI was spectacular and only 75 rooms. What a great deal!
  12. I'm finding a number that have committed to reduced capacity - definitely the key. We found a small AI on a port stop last year that has our eye for sure. Staying on property is like staying on the ship, no biggie....
  13. Haha thanks for the laugh on this miserable day. We discovered a small AI while on a port stop last year - 75 rooms. Thinking of something like that. Yeah maybe it's time to you to stop cruising for a bit LOL! PS - We're in CT too.
