  1. Our 3rd July Baltic sailing has been cancelled (second year running for us) and we have decided to take the refund option. Unfortunately no one seems to have told the IT department and the link in the email says that I’m not eligible for a refund as only sailings up to the end of May have been cancelled. Left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing again. Phone lines are, as expected, stupid busy. Will try again tomorrow. Debbie
  2. You are correct that each individual will receive a separate FCC, but when three are sharing a cabin it’s not split equally. We got three FCC’s for our cancelled around Japan cruise, the amount is based on the cruise fare each individual was invoiced. So passengers 1 and 2 got an equal amount, the 3rd passenger received considerably less as their fare was at a reduced rate being the third person sharing the cabin. Hope this helps. Debbie
  3. I had our Japan cruise cancelled in mid February, way before the cruise with confidence etc. I received our FCC yesterday. It came on two separate emails, mine and my sons were detailed separately on one email - my husbands on another direct to him. So about a month to process but that was before the current avalanche of cancellations. hope that helps re timescales etc. Debbie
  4. Following along vicariously, hope you have a great and healthy cruise. Unfortunately our around Japan cruise has been cancelled, we have cancelled and rebooked for next year our Baltic cruise and our replacement April fly/drive holiday to Florida next month has a huge question mark over it. Can’t wait to hear about your travels. Debbie
  5. If you still haven’t planned anything for Naples may I suggest Underground Naples. It’s a volunteer run underground museum which dates back to Roman times but comes alive during WW2 when it was used as giant air raid shelters. Best €10 we spent. A 15 minute walk from the ship along a very non descript side street - very Naples. Debbie
  6. Pulling up the virtual chair, sitting back and prepared to enjoy. Thanks for taking me along for the ride Jim and Iain. safe travels. Debbie
  7. On Infinity in the summer - at least one doctor and two nurses. debbie
  8. Pulling up a chair...........been looking forward to your next review. Debbie
  9. Remember them taking the nightly chocolate away? There was uproar and they eventually reversed the decision. Maybe we need to overwhelm their twitter and Facebook feeds with complaints plus the usual channels to complain? Like others I feel that this is a cheap move by Celebrity, I wouldn’t say I was a massive user of the facility but have occasionally enjoyed watching a film. Debbie
  10. Following along, we are on Millie in April for an around Japan. safe travels Debbie
  11. I don’t know if this is usual MDR fare or not but last month on Infinity there was a different special available in the dining room every night except evening chic nights. I had the teriyaki chicken served with rice and stir fried vegetables- hands down the best meal of the holiday. French onion soup is my favourite starter. Debbie
  12. I have just got off Infinity, this was the first time I’ve had an internet package so can’t say if it’s any better or not. However, I thought it was pretty poor, constantly dropping in and out, I seriously doubt it would support WiFi calling. surfing the net, Facebook etc was painful. We were in a forward deck seven balcony stateroom if that makes any difference. Regards Debbie
  13. Loving Venice in the early morning light. We have just come off Infinity Venice to Rome. Hope you have a great sailing. Debbie
  14. A similar thing to be aware of that on the same trip was the water shuttle to St Marks in Venice. All I can say is that it was the Ryan air of shuttles................after we had paid we were told that the drop off was ‘ just four bridges away’ from St Marks square. The price of the shuttle was only 2€ more expensive than the public water bus, so no real difference, and it didn’t stop anywhere else on the way. It wasn’t a problem for us, but my sister who has MS found the walk a little challenging and on the return trip we encountered a family where due to mobility issues the Dad hadn’t managed the walk. If you have walking issues I would stick to the public water bus that drops you much closer. Regards Debbie
  15. We were in Select dining, and shorts a plenty. Entertainment like food is subjective. Poolside Olympics are just not our scene and not something we have seen on previous Celebrity sailings. Hope you enjoy Rome. regards Debbie
