  1. I love following these pictures. But I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the sheer enormity pf how large these buildings must be! It is mind boggeling to me, knowing how large these ships always apear to me when we first see them in port. I would love to see this operation in person some day.
  2. We did the 2019 Alaska Repo on the Ovation - 11 nights. It was the best itinerary I could hope for! We loved the extra time and the port days in Icy Point Strait and Sitka that are not on the usual itineraries. We are also on the TP in 2022, but on the Quantum. I am inclined to stay in Hawaii a few days, but want to see what the repo offers before we make any decisions.
  3. Nope. See the letter I posted. The Quantum TP was switched to Brisbane on April 11, 2011 and we were all shifted automatically to that cruise.
  4. Yep. It seems you all got the short end of the stick. I would be very angry, too. I was very surprised to see that you didn't have the option. For those of us who had booked the Radiance (thank goodness!) it looks like it has worked out. Hopefully the itinerary will include the New Zealand ports, which is why we booked The Radiance instead of the Quantum in the first place. I do hope you are able to join us, though. I would love to see you again on the Quantum!
  5. It looks as though those of us on the Radiance TP have been shifted over to the Quantum for the same price. Those on the Quantum original sailing have been cancelled and have to rebook for OBC compensation only. It looks like we got the better end of the deal on the Radiance shift. We were originally on the Ovation TP from Tokyo to Seattle in May '21. We did a L&S to the Radiance TP from Brisbane to Honolulu in April '22. We had a Spacious OV on the Ovation and that was changed to a Large OV on the Radiance. Now that we are back on the Quantum, I am assuming that we w
  6. New Quantum itinerary out of Brisbane for the TP: The itinerary they sent me still shows the Sydney itinerary and the letter says "similar itinerary", so I am now not sure about losing NZ?????
  7. I just got this from my TA. We are losing the NZ ports: We hope this email finds you and your family healthy and well. Over the next few weeks, we'll be making schedule and itinerary adjustments to some of our late 2021 and early 2022 sailings for six of our ships. These changes are being made after tapping into market research as well as listening to feedback and input from guests and trade partners on opportunities for new adventures. But most importantly, we are applying the best available public health, science and engineering insights to deliver a safe and healthy cruise vacati
  8. I just noticed that the itinerary I was sent still showed the old Quantum itinerary, so I am hoping the new one will include NZ.
  9. We were booked on the April 15, 2022 TP out of Brisbane to Hawaii on the Radiance. I just got this from my TA. While I am ok with the change of date to April 11 and the ship change, I am disappointed in losing the NZ ports: We hope this email finds you and your family healthy and well.

  10. Agree with Emmy on the TP. It was for the itinerary. Also, we had friends already booked on the Radiance, which is a big factor for us. We did a TA on the Brilliance. We like that class of ship. Don't get me wrong, we also like the Quantum Class, so the itinerary and friends is what sold us. On the Brilliance TA we had more sea days in a row than on this cruise and we were never bored. And we don't do specialty restaurants more than a couple of times a cruise, so that is not a big factor for us.
  11. We just booked the Radiance TP in April 2022 from Brisbane to Honolulu. It was a Lift & Shift. I will be really bummed if this is changed! I am also wondering how it would affect the L&S? I would hate to lose the great price we got with that.
  12. Our B2B in October 2021 out of Rome has never been lower than the original price we got from our TA (group pricing). I had her check it when others were reporting getting price drops. For those of us with kids long grown and on their own the KSF sale is a red banner to stay away! We got caught with that on a 5 night Caribbean B2B following a Transatlantic. After the peaceful Transatlantic it was culture shock when the next group boarded!! We found out it was not only KSF but a good Florida resident discount. Actually, the kids (and there were tons of them) we mostly well behav
  13. We did a L&S yesterday. We thought it was last minute, but then it was extended right after we got the confirmation. We did not think our sailing would qualify for the L&S as it was not the same itinerary (Tokyo to Seattle in May 2021 vs Brisbane, AUS to Honolulu in April 2022), but it did. We knew we would not be going on the May 2021 sailing, so were waiting to cancel to see if it would be canceled by the cruise line instead. We had a non-refundable deposit on that cruise. When we found out we had friends on the same sailing who did the L&S we decided to do it, too. We wer
  14. We just did a Lift & Shift yesterday from a sailing in May 2021, to a sailing in April 2022. Everything is confirmed. Now we are just hoping the world settles down before then!
  15. Our standard balcony cabin on Ovation was quite roomy and very comfortable. This class of ship has very roomy cabins, so I think what you read is wrong. We are booked in another standard balcony cabin for 23 nights next year and looking forward to it!
