  1. We rebooked our Iberian Peninsula cruise for Sept 2022. Its now Italy, Croatia, Montengro. I like that it starts in Rome and ends in Rome. We're also in a Sky Suite. We were supposed to have a Suite in Dec 2020 and Sept 2021. I hope we finally get to experience one in 2022. We've always sailed in AQ before.
  2. We used FCC for our Sept 4, Reflection cruise. The email I read from X states its still only good until April 2022( for use thru Sept 2022).
  3. We're rebooking on this cruise. 10 NIGHTS Italy, Croatia & Montenegro ONBOARDCELEBRITY REFLECTION Sept 16th.
  4. I have mixed feelings. We were really looking forward to the cruise. However, now we scheduled my wife's knee surgery for August. Do they extend the dates of the FCC's
  5. Personally, I don't understand her reasons( vaccine came out too quickly, doesn't know what long term effects will be). I can't see her ever being able to take a cruise with us, if vaccines will always be required, even years from now.
  6. Yes, of course. Imagine if they just took people's word for it. LOL. My friend did not want to get vaccinated so she pulled out of our cruise when final payment was due a few weeks ago. She gave up a 12 day cruise in a suite that only cost her 2k( as a 3rd person in a suite) because she didn't want the vaccine.
  7. There isn't a cruise with the same itinerary next year. Not eligible for lift and shift.
  8. Well, I emailed the TA. They said if I cancel, I'll lose any cash I paid and get back the FCC's. Also, they'll charge me a 50 per person cancelation fee unless I rebook another cruise. Or, they said I can wait up to 48hrs before the cruise to cancel. We've made other plans, my wife is going to have knee surgery( we moved it to August from end of Sept) and we'll go on another vacation. Now to figure out what cruise to use the FCC on for next year.
  9. Thank you, how are the vaccines going over there? Also, Why didn't X just cancel instead of stringing us along. The list I posted above shows all of the cancelled European cruises and ours is not on the list.
  10. Our Reflection Sept 4th cruise from Amsterdam is NOT on the list. Do you think its only a matter of time before they cancel that?
  11. https://www.celebritycruises.com/travel-alert/voluntary-suspension-of-cruising This list shows all of the Europe cancelled cruises( among other cancelled cruises), however the Reflection is not on the list. If we paid with FCC, do we just get the FCC back? I'm assuming we're not going to get 125 percent of FCC back again if X cancels.
  12. Sorry, I'm too busy to follow what X is doing as far as staffing goes. The Reflection( as well as other ships) still appear on the Amsterdam port calendar. That is all I know thus far.
  13. How do you know that? It shows on the port schedule for Amsterdam that it is coming in September.
  14. Since I haven't read this entire thread, I wonder how things are going to be handled in Europe? We have a cruise on Sept 4th from Amsterdam to Rome. Supposed to have lots of stops, 3 in Spain, Portugal, Brussels, France. They took our final payment( FCC from last years cancelled cruise). I haven't made any plans yet, no air fare, no excurions. I'm a planner and its killing me that I don't know what is going to happen. Anyone care to venture a guess? My friend was a 3rd in our suite and already decided not to go, since she refuses to get vaccinated.
  15. Just an FYI, We've sailed in AQ 5x and the food is not high quality. The best item I had on the last cruise in Sept 2019 was the Lobster Tail. My wife ate the steak, not grass fed. I posted a live vlog with pics of all the meals in Blu. I imagine the food would be higher quality in Luminae. We cruise( fingers crossed) on Sept 4th( Reflection) in a Suite. This will be our first time in a suite.
  16. Alaska flies to Ft. Lauderdale. Since I'm a visa holder, I get a b1g1 for 99 companion fare. I don't mind making the drive. Or, I'll fly to MIA on AA since I have lounge access.
  17. on the topic of Olife. We fly to Miami from LAX. I'd rather have the 250.00 air credit since I prefer to fly on American or Alaska. I often have promo codes for those airlines. I took the excursions because I think I'll find excursions higher than 100 each x 3.
  18. Thanks. I was looking at the excursions for the cruise in Feb 2021, the ones I'm interested in are all under 200.00. Mostly snorkeling. The cruise we booked isn't until 2022.
  19. I asked and was told that I can use the OBC for tips. That is what I plan on doing as we don't drink. I took O life for 300.00 per person( the excursion option). If we picked three 200.00 excursions, we've gotten more than our money's worth.
