  1. Holland America announced Canada cancellations today, I am sure Cunard won't be far behind
  2. Booked on an Oct 2021 cruise from Quebec, assume its cancelled. Has anyone received any notice from Cunard for these 2021 Canada sailings?
  3. Just one data point, but last week I cancelled a Seabourn cruise scheduled for July and got my money back in 3 days. I moved my cancelled June Crystal cruise to 2022 and I've sent 2 emails already to res support just to move the existing cash over (which reservations states they can no longer do). I doubt it will be done within the month, or two. Many of my friends won't book Crystal due to the way the last year was handled.
  4. Stayed at the Ritz prior to a Symphony TA. It was an amazing hotel. It’s a four seasons not a ritz Carlton
  5. My June cruise on Symphony was just cancelled as well....credits are now 115%
  6. Looks like my June cruise on symphony is the first cruise currently listed. Not buying air quite yet!
  7. Nothing to be puzzled by. La Terrazza was always full and honestly felt like eating in a mass market buffet. Indochine and atlantide were about it for our 10 days on board. The silver note was a joke. Indochine was so poorly lit it was like being in a mall food court. Caviar was not on the menu and we were actually told not to spread it around me the ship that it was available for free (classy). I sailed many many Silversea cruises but none were as bad (the ones with traditonal Dining rooms) as Silver Spirit. We asked for special off the menu items and finally received one on the seco
  8. Sure, for most the 7 days are over and you’re off the ship before your display symptoms. Then the cruise line doesn’t have to say you caught it on the ship
  9. The given we could only eat in Atlantide as the weather was awful, menus that change every four days meant we had the same menus night after night. No one was forthcoming about ordering off menu until we spoke to the matre’d half way through the cruise. They also hid the fact that caviar was available. It was very different from cruises years ago on the shadow, whisper, wind and cloud. The cruise was mess and silversea would be my last choice in the luxury segment
  10. Sailed Silver Spirit two years ago, it was awful. Dining menus that never changed, and given it was a cold weather cruise the dining felt very limited without the outdoor options. Cabins was the best part, otherwise blah
  11. I used to always sail solo on the old triplets and always had a great time. Invitations for dinner were plentiful and it was up to me how to dine. Since the triplets left the fleet I moved over to Crystal, which was always wonderful (never really encountered any snooty passengers). Today I booked the Encore in July (fingers crossed Seabourn is sailing by then). Why the switch?, not happy with the way Crystal handled their shutdown, poor communication and many are still waiting for refunds from April (I had to jump through hoops with my credit card after waiting months for any refund or
  12. I have a June booking on Symphony, but have a back up cruise plan on Seabourn. Sadly, I know some passengers that are still waiting for refunds that were asked for in April/May. Most have written off their deposits for next year (including me) Very sad. Are third party insurance companies even covering Crystal?
  13. Crystals CEO has failed miserably and his lack of communication has done harm to not only loyal passengers, but to the travel agent community and I am sure their vendors. If Crystal survives, I’d sail them as I’ve always found their shoreside operations no where near as together as the on board product. I have a deposit with Crystal for June but in my mind have written that cash off and we are looking (along with other friends who are long time Crystal sailors) for alternative sailings on Seabourn and/or Regent. These are stressful times and Crystals actions over the past months ha
  14. on our last cruise on the Spirit we didn't learn about it being available till half way through the cruise (staff was very tight lipped about it being available unlike Seabourn) and then its was made into a big deal about asking supervisors, etc. We had it at dinner, but it was made out to be such a hassle when it didn't need to be.
