  1. Are you sure your refund isn't sitting on the cancelled card waiting for you? I would check on line or call the issuer. Had it happen.
  2. I would guess Honfleur which we thoroughly enjoyed as an "overnight, Paris" Just a guess
  3. Crystal cancelled my July St. Petersburg cruise in late May. I opted for a refund and received it yesterday in full. I did not contact them or my credit card along the way. I always expected Crystal to honor the refund but am relieved to see it.
  4. Just put a phony date in the the PCPC, go about making your reservations and correct it when you get your renewed numbers.
  5. Symphony July 3 cruise was cancelled overnight. Same letter as Serenity announcement.
  6. A friend and I shared a C cabin on Serenity on the 2015 WC after our husbands had passed away, so we not only had 2 people's clothes in the the closet, it was 2 women's fancy clothes. There were some useful hacks to maximizing closet space. Most important was removing the huge wooden hangers Crystal gives us. We brought our own thin flocked hangers which made a huge difference. We also brought skirt and slack hangers to take advantage of multiple hangers in one. The other thing I found indispensable was a soft sided shoe holder that hung on the closet rack. The loss of shoes rattling around th
  7. Generally much easier to get to EWR than either of the NYC airports. That being said an accident on the West Side Highway or GW Bridge could always derail your plans.
  8. We disembarked in Vancouver from Symphony in August. There were 3 other ships in port. We walked off with luggage at 8AM and were in the airport at our gate at 9:15. We had been in Victoria the previous day and cleared Canadian customs there.We do not have the line skipping global entry tool but there were many automated machines that worked very well. I was a little nervous but the alternative to the 11:50 flight were terrible.
  9. I'm a newbee, 24 years come February. It's been great!
  10. I don't know about music but I have streamed podcasts from NPR ONE while on board. Would think it would be similar.

    I've never seen brown rice used in sushi in Umi Uma, you might be able to make a special request. They do offer it as a side dish. No clue as to silk. Second on the Black Cod recommendation and the New Style Sashimi Scallops are my new favoritest.
  12. With something like 47 legs on Crystal, mostly on my favorite Symphony, you can't go wrong with an E1 on deck 7. Personally I try to get as close to a door to the promenade as possible to run outside and see passing sights. You should definitely avoid the staterooms directly over the midships area of the Starlight Lounge but I think these are now "entertainer" cabins. Obstruction amounts to not being able to look up to the sky. The top few inches of your windows will be covered by the bottoms of life boats. PLEASE do NOT book one of these cabins, if nobody else learns the secret they wil
  13. I don't know, but would guess that Crystal has relationships with tour providers in the other ports and have an idea what is available. They probably haven't called at the ports you mention as often recently. Nothing is firmed up until about 6 months before embarkation, then you should see prices and have the ability to reserve.
  14. I have never printed tickets on line or heard of anyone else doing it. Crystal sends out tickets and various informational material to TA's about 4-6 weeks before your cruise. The travel agent should have them unless you have not completed you PCPC forms.
  15. Not planning on flaming you but you are ill informed. The Junior Suites on Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas are listed as 348 sq.ft. (267 + 81) where Crystal Symphony Penthouse is 412 sq. ft (340 + 70). It's fine to prefer one line over another, although I doubt you've ever experienced Crystal or you wouldn't be making this comparison, but facts are not optional so let's get them right.
