  1. September 2019 ABC's on Celebrity Equinox. Our December 23rd touch canal on constellation was canceled. I was really excited for that cruise. Planned a year in advance and was going to be our first time in a suite.
  2. I think we'll be fine for cruising in June 2021. We have an Iberian Peninsula cruise booked for Sept 2021. I have high hopes, our TA seems to think we'll be going on our Dec 2020 xmas cruise.
  3. We're booked on the Constellation out of Tampa for Dec 23rd this year. My final payment is due Sept 23rd. I really think its going to be cancelled, which is why I haven't pulled the plug and cancelled it myself. The extra 25% will come in handy next year for our Sept Iberian penisula cruise. IF by some chance its not cancelled, we'll enjoy and make the most of it while social distancing ourselves as much as possible. Someone just posted on my roll call that all excursions have to be booked thru the Cruise line. I'm not too happy about that.
  4. Our next cruise is supposed to be on December 23rd( Constellation out of Tampa). We'll see if it still happens. If it does, I plan on bringing EXTRA medications and toiletries( just in case).
  5. Exactly. I can't believe Momma Rene thinks she "deserves" to have a revolutionized ship. You can cancel your trip if you don't want to sail on the ship as is. After everything this country has been thru in the last few months, I'm happy to take Connie as is. I need a vacation. Once again, its free will. No one is forcing you to take this trip.
  6. We're on the sailing right after you( 12-23). I will not cancel until X cancels as not to lose any deposit, etc. We're in a suite, so I'm not worried about NO buffet( I can't imagine a buffet going until there is a vaccine).
  7. I'm still looking at your posts/meals with longing in my heart. I want someone to cook for me( and serve me) and then do the dishes and clean up the kitchen. LOL. We've only ever cruised in Aqua Class, we get a canape plate daily. On the first day, I ask the room attendant for cheese/crackers daily. I also mention we don't like blue cheese. I was surprised on the last cruise we were given saltine crackers. Next time, I'll bring my own. They took away the cracker variety from the buffet as well( our last cruise was Sept 2019 on Equinox).
  8. This!!! Its amazing what we'll settle for when our choices are taken away. I normally only eat organic eggs, however when the ONLY eggs that were available in the grocery store were regular eggs, you bet your bottom dollar that I bought them. Same with Toilet paper. I like Cottenelle. I had to "settle" for the store brand( at least it was soft). I'll take any ship that X has to offer. I almost said " I'll take any cruise", however, that is not true. I'll never cruise on Carnival.
  9. FYI. I just checked on our Dec 23, 2020 cruise and Suites are sold out. It says " The Retreat" vs. Suites.
  10. You are correct. Just like how things changed after 9/11. We all adapted to it and now going thru security, no liquids, etc are all second nature to us.
  11. I'm looking at all your meals with Envy in my heart. After cooking 3 meals a day for the last 3 weeks, I'd love to be served. : ) Btw, do you bring your own laundry detergent( pods) or do you let the ship use theirs? There was a really long thread I read about how hard the ships laundry is on clothes.
  12. Thanks for doing this review. I like your writing style, its like mine, right to the point!! My wife is like Scott, she has quite the t-shirt collection too. We always end up bringing a lot of t-shirts back with us. We also are not light packers : ) Who won the poker game at the end of the cabin crawl? Was the ship a lot less crowded than normal? Our next cruise( fingers crossed) is in December. Our first suite experience. I'll really, really need it after all this craziness we're all dealing with.
  13. We go down to Marco 1x a year and will be retiring in Naples in a few years. You'll be happy to know that Little Bar is still there!!
  14. We're booked for December 23, 2020 in a Suite. Was looking forward to the revolutionized ship, but if its doesn't go thru, we'll still go. I'm going to NEED a cruise after this crazy sh@t is over with.
  15. I have to say, I'm 53, and I have an auto-immune disease( psoriatic arthritis). I'd really think twice about cruising( right now), not only for my health, but for the possibility of quarantine, being stuck in a room away from my dogs for weeks at a time. The quarantine would be the worst part for me. I'm glad our next cruise isn't until Dec 2020.
