  1. Cruise Critic Guideline on "Cruise Line Bashing" Cruise Critic considers constantly and persistently "bashing" a cruise line disruptive to other members. Therefore, you may receive a single warning regarding this behavior. In the sole opinion of Cruise Critic Community Management, you may lose access to that cruise line forum after the first warning. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/guidelines/ @MakingUpForLostTime – You have crossed that line. This is your warning.
  2. Hi everyone – Host Anne shared this YouTube video that was sent to her from a crew member...it's a video from cruise entertainers across a variety of cruise lines...this is a group of cruise industry professionals that are hurting like everyone else. This is really heartwarming.

  4. Azamara and Celebrity as both part of RCCL. They are backed by the same deep pockets. So your comparison doesn't show anything about Azamara's ability to make it through the Pandemic.
  5. The Captain must have really put the pedal to the metal on your cruise. We heard nothing, from the engines or the restaurant below us in 6088 [in Costa Rica, where we didn't have very many miles to make each day].
  6. Sorry to learn that. I thought that everybody outside the US had better consumer protections than we do! Still, they will have to cancel it at some point, because Canada absolutely will not let it happen.
  7. I would think that the official announcements by Canada and Australia would be sufficient to justify credit card chargebacks for those like @jland who at this point want to get their deposits back. People on various Cruise Critic boards are reporting success with that approach, although the rules may be different in Australia and UK.
  8. Except the countries that have negative interest rates – people in those countries should be glad to let the cruise lines keep their money for future use, at least that's at the sky-high rate of 0% !!!
  9. We were able to enjoy La Mercè on our trip. The Giants' Procession was amazing [and it just kept coming!] We then fought our way to the small Plaça de Sant Jaume where the Castellers performed [it was incredibly crowded, but we were able to push our way in to see several groups perform, then push our way out again]. We skipped the 18:00 cavalcade because our hotel had given us free tickets to Palau Güell [which understandably weren't honored that day], and then we did get to Plaça de la Mercè to witness the Sardana Dancing. After tapas dinner, we took the Metro to Plaça d’Espanya for the Musical Fireworks Display that closed out the festival – that was an incredible highlight. I highly recommend arranging to be in Barcelona for the closing day of the festival! More details in our blog of the trip: jazzbeauxmediterraneancruise2019.wordpress.com
  10. That seems like a better way. First, it prevents the kind of agita that Petoonya just experienced. Second, it lets long-term planners see what the entire season looks like. Third, it may secure a few waitlist bookings that ensure the cruise stays full. And it shouldn't be any harder to program than delisting a cruise.
  11. Some of the listings on the Cruise Critic article were suspicious [some had dates of resumption before today, which is impossible] so I decided to check every listing on the cruise line's website. There are too many changes to highlight, so I suggest you check above for any lines you are interested in. I will update this thread every few days based on the CC article, and do the full website check every week or so.
