  1. My view this morning. Millennium in port for resupply. Just learned yesterday that the 3 Millennium cruises I had scheduled for September have been cancelled. Sad, but not totally unexpected.
  2. My view this morning in San Diego - Zuiderdam in port.
  3. My view this morning. First time I've seen Millennium in port for quite some time -- she's normally been at anchor just offshore.
  4. My view of Nieuw Amsterdam this morning in San Diego.
  5. My view of Koningsdam this morning in San Diego.
  6. I haven't looked at my signature for many years, and just realized it's about 67 cruises behind. I do have one HAL cruise, Mexico at the end of 2019, on Eurodam. (I'll have to do a signature update soon) Dave
  7. Enjoyed the Antarctica pictures. My view this morning in San Diego: Westerdam
  8. On Sunday (14 June) I received a full refund for the Oosterdam 3 May Alaska cruise that was canceled by HAL on 30 March.
  9. Received full refund today for 3 May Oosterdam Alaska cruise that was canceled by HAL on 30 March.
  10. Millennium and Eclipse each docked briefly on Friday, 5/22 in San Diego. Apparently to disembark crew members -- local chartered buses were then seen at San Diego airport driving directly to 3 iAero (formerly Swift Air) chartered 737-800s. The last of these departed at 11:30 pm PDT for MIA, with an eventual destination of Bridgetown, Barbados, where one has already landed and the other two are in flight, due to arrive soon, according to FlightAware. Once in Barbados, I believe the crew members will be transferred to other ships (RCI?) for voyages home.
  11. Wednesday, May 20, 2020 Given ongoing global public health circumstances, Celebrity Cruises has decided to extend the suspension of most sailings through July 31, 2020. We are working with our guests and travel partners to address this disruption to their vacations, and we are genuinely sorry for their inconvenience. We expect to return to service on August 1. Guest Letter from Celebrity Cruises Impacted Itineraries For impacted sailings, compensation of 125% Future Cruise Credit (FCC) will be processed automatically. Future Cruise Credit is good through Decem
  12. See this link for an article in today's San Diego Union-Tribune. I didn't know there were some South American passengers still aboard Eclipse. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/business/tourism/story/2020-04-30/cruising-has-stopped-but-ships-with-thousands-of-crew-members-still-in-san-diego-waiting-to-return-home Cruises have stopped, but ships with thousands of crew members still in San Diego waiting to return home
  13. Today I received a full refund to my X Visa card for the March 30 Coastal sailing of Eclipse, which was cancelled by Celebrity on March 13. I requested the refund on the 14th. Sadly, as I look out my window this morning I see Eclipse still here in San Diego, docked next to Disney Wonder.
  14. Westerdam docked this morning in San Diego next to Celebrity Eclipse, which has been here since the end of March. Although it's great to have a wonderful view of the harbor, it's disappointing not to be sailing on any of the ships that have been rotating through or sharing the dock space for the last month or so: Celebrity Eclipse, Celebrity Millennium, Disney Wonder, Westerdam, Seven Seas Splendor.
