  1. I agree. Even though I am on the West Coast - not extremely interested in 3 & 4 day cruises. I'm ready to do b2b2b - but not a party boat each cruise. 7 day cruises PLEASE!
  2. I was told NO - so I cancelled my Windstar cruise for refund of deposit. I did not want FCC - and pay double the price. So no Windstar for me . . . .
  3. So Windstar if you're listening - you wouldn't let me carry my March 11 - 18th booking over to a fall cruise at the same price. No hints on how you might help me rebook and make it work. I'm under some time constraints with Air Tahiti Nui. (flights must be rebooked before the end of 2021) I couldn't get any hints of some assistance from Windstar or Oceania. I actually was booked on both with a week on Moorea in between. SO - I am using my Air Tahiti Nui one time date change for next fall. I spent a couple of hours on the phone with a BIg Box South Pacific agent. For almost the same price
  4. I will not rebook unless it can happen at the same price, and sometime in 2022. Otherwise, forget it.
  5. I wish you had this option. Now that my March 11th in Tahiti has been cancelled - I'd like the same cruise and same price a year later. FCC but double or triple the price doesn't quite cut it. You've had my deposit for almost a year - - - guess cash and no cruise is my best option!
  6. Booked for March 2021. What % of the ship will be occupied? And will ship excursions be required to get off the ship? If ship excursions are required - will the price be adjusted to make them more reasonable? After our cruise with Windstar, we'll be staying in Tahiti for another 2 weeks - therefore, I want my own excursions.
  7. It was the entire month on the Empress. The prices were so amazing, due to no Cuba. Double points for a month pushed me to D+ - hubbie can thank me! I was able to have dinner with the officers. The VIP beach at Labadee. The cabins are REALLY small - it was perfect for me! I had the same cabin the whole time. My cabin steward took great care of me! So did a couple of bartenders! I sat in the same place for the shows - got to know the Cruise Director and Assistant Cruise Director. I was looking forward to my October 2020 as a first time Diamond +. Oh well - now 2021. Not
  8. Definitely a difference between Solo & Single. Sometimes I cruise with my husband - sometimes I cruise Solo. Sometimes I meet people and socialize a lot, sometimes I don't. Why a cruise & not flying from here to there? I like to go someplace warm in the winter. I like to unpack once. I like someone to tidy up my cabin, cook, and do my dishes. I like to sight see, read or walk or talk, with a little drinking thrown in. If you want no children - don't cruise during school holidays. Last year I spent a month on the Empress. Oh my goodness - Thanksgiving week was not for me! The
