  1. Markham, Please let us know what you find out from your TA. It does sees odd that Seabourn posted an itinerary and then pulled it. It seems they would have known a dry dock was needed if that turns out to be the case. Thanks and Happy Holidays!
  2. I was looking at the 12/10/2020 sailing of Seabourn Sojourn, 12-night Miami to Miami a few weeks ago. This sailing has disappeared from Seabourn's website. The sailing prior is shown returning to Miami on 12/10. I am wondering if the ship was chartered. I called Seabourn and the person on the phone had no idea what was going on. Does anyone know what might be going on? Thanks
  3. We were assigned our suite today; eight days prior to sailing. I must say we are disappointed as we were assigned an accessible veranda cabin. I knew this was a possibility, but hoped it wouldn't happen. This is the chance you take when booking a guarantee.
  4. Thank you all for the very informative replies. Two questions; 1. In order to use the snorkel gear, do you check it out and return after each use. We were planning on bringing our own as there are at least three opportunities to just go out on our own to snorkel. Flying with snorkel gear is not easy so using Seabourn's equipment would be helpful. 2. I was not aware that Seabourn has different soap choices. Are they from Molton and Brown? I am really looking forward to sailing with Seabourn. My only concern is getting spoiled and not being able to return to the mass-market ships. Thanks again.
  5. Thank you all for the replies. I am really looking forward to sailing with Seabourn. I was not aware of the Seabourn referral offer. Thank you for letting me know about this.
  6. Hi. I have just booked a Caribbean cruise on Seabourn Sojourn for 12/10/19. This is my first "luxury" cruise. I have sailed on Azamara several times and in Suites on Celebrity and Holland America many times. My first question is about the formal night dress code. I have a tuxedo and I enjoy wearing it. Do you think I will be out-of-place wearing my tuxedo on formal night? I know that very few people wear them these days. Secondly, how does the marina on Seabourn Sojourn operate? Is it something that you reserve? How often might it be used on a typical 11-day Caribbean itinerary? Finally, there are no reservations remaining for TK prior to 8:45 pm. Is it possible to try for a reservation once onboard. Thanks for any feedback.
  7. Hi, This is the OP and I wanted to reply following my cruise on 5/17 in cabin 1004 and 1006. There is definitely noise from Cosmos; loud enough on a couple of occasions to identify the actual song playing. The noise lasted until after 1a.m on several occasions. We turned our ac fans on high and though this helped a little the low bass booming was still clearly there. The cabins are also smaller than a typical Aqua cabin. The shower head was clogged with debris and shot water in every direction. Just not a great experience this time with Celebrity for this and other reasons. I won't be back for a while. This was my forty-first cruise with about a quarter of those on Celebrity. I feel sad as Celebrity has been a company that I have trusted for a long time.
  8. I sail in cabin 1004 on 5/17. I spoke with someone at Celebrity this evening. They say that the official change from Aqua to 2C occurs on 5/31. The representative has no idea why the change is occurring, but assured me that it couldn’t possibly be because of a noise issue.
  9. I sail on 5/17 and there are no other Aquaclass cabins available. I am in 1004 so I think I’m stuck.
  10. So if it is indeed the Cosmos noise that is driving this change to category 2C, how should those of us sailing in these cabins as Aqua class in the next couple of weeks deal with this? Clearly Celebrity knows there’s a problem, and we will have no choice but to suffer through.
  11. If you are in an AquaClass cabin should your Xpress Pass indicate this in any way? Thanks
  12. DianaLee, I hope Celebrity gets this sorted out for you quickly. For those of us who are booked in these cabins for the next couple of weeks. I am assuming that Celebrity is going to keep these cabins as Aqua. The only other alternative for the 5/17 cruise would be to bump people from AquaClass as the remainder of AQ cabins are sold out. It is disappointing that one spends money and more importantly precious time, to go on vacation only to experience an apparently less than should be situation. Clearly, things must not be going well if Celebrity is making this change. I hope that Celebrity will do all that they possibly can to make the experience adequate until they can get this sorted out. Celebrity, if you're listening, you are (or at least should be) better than this. Please get your act together.
  13. Why would Celebrity add cabins of any category and not make sure that they are soundproofed to a reasonable level?It is possible to soundproof cabins. It doesn't matter what category the cabin is; a passenger has a reasonable expectation of quiet at night. They could also change the schedule of Cosmos. It is just ridiculous for guests to be disturbed late at night by a disco. It makes you wonder if those making the decisions at Celebrity have ever really cruised in a "normal" cabin. In regard to Blu, did Celebrity add additional seating in Blu or did they just "hope for the best" as far as crowding? I'm sure there are ways they could have made this work, but it just seems like they aren't thinking. Question: If I arrive at Blu and find that there is going to be a long wait, am I allowed to go eat in the main dining room. I'm not a fan of waiting at restaurants on land and not really interested in doing that at sea either.
  14. Malia717, Let's just hope the cabins are still classified as Aqua class through the end of 5/17 sailing. Have a wonderful trip. See you on board.
  15. Alfredo22, I agree it's good news, unless you booked one of these cabins and expected it to be Aqua Class.
