  1. I just got off phone with celebrity she stated after checking with suprtiors that the email I attached was sent in error policy is same as yesterday’s email COVID pre test is required , no masks while on board. I told her celebrity should post a retraction or someone who did not see yesterday’s is going to get a big surprise. If they dont do a retraction then they can’t admit they made a mistake and are about as confusing as the CDC is. I hope this policy does not change by midweek and they say then no pre test required if vaccinated they will be refunding my test costs as they changed after the fact. If anyone hears something different please post and comment here. Booking test now

Yesterday I got email stating we must get a COVID test 72 hours in advance of our Aug. 7 Edge cruise. As I read this below it seems to say that if 12 and older an vaccinated just show your health dept. card . Do I need a test prior to cruise or since I am a American citizen who are vaccinated just show my card, the email below makes me think I don’t need test. I called celebrity and she stated yesterday email which said must have a COVID test, when I told this came today she said did not have that so get a test.

  3. After I responded to celrbrity to identify to be sure it was them they responded with another email with my booking I answered we were both vaccinated and she responded with a thank you. Thanks for all your replies.
  4. Just checking wife got email from celrbrity asking if vaccinated advised us to reply if we are or not vaccinated, did anyone else get this inquiry? It looked like it was from celebrity but did not have any booking number to prove, just worried this may be a scam of some sort to get our information. I am her husband and I did not get this email and I am on the same cruise .
  5. Just got my cancellation notice for all June cruises. ABOUT YOUR UPCOMING TRAVELS Dear Guest, We are reaching out to provide an update on the status of your 2021 cruise vacation. As the world continues to work towards a new normal, our primary goal continues to be a healthy return to service for our guests, crew and the communities we visit. While working with health and government authorities towards this shared goal, we are evaluating all current itineraries Celebrity Cruises will now be suspending global operations for all sailings departing on or before June 30, 2021. Unfortunately, this suspension will require cancellation of your upcoming cruise vacation. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes as we value your vacation time and want to ensure you have the best experience possible on a Celebrity cruise. At this time, we would like to offer you the opportunity to be re-accommodated on another Celebrity Cruises vacation or to receive a 125% Future Cruise Credit (FCC) or a 100% Refund. From now through April 22, you have the option of keeping your cruise vacation plans to the same destination and rescheduling for next year on a date within four weeks of your originally scheduled departure.

The value of the FCC will be calculated based on the amounts paid toward your cruise and will be processed by May 13, 2021 via email. Cruise taxes and fees will be refunded separately to your original form of payment within 30 days of cancellation. No action is required on your part to receive this FCC.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard soon for an amazing Celebrity Cruises vacation. Sincerely, Celebrity Cruises
  6. We also have a June cruise booked losing hope that it will sail, but we have looked into 2022 and have picked a backup date in Nov. of 22 I am sure they will be back by then. I did see June cruises still on Celebrity site yesterday I will check again today. Your information does make it seem we will not be going .
  7. My wife and I are trying to decide prior to final pay if we should go, bump forward or cancel. We are 71 and are concerned about what happens if we come down with COVID. Does the ship have medicines on board to treat this. Is this treatment covered by the insurance we bought through Princess. Does Medicare cover you while at sea? We are in good Heath a bit overweight but generally good shape, our concern is should we risk going as we know the cruise line is taking every precaution and we have been going to stores, and restaurants during the last few months and wear our masks, wash our hands and use wipes, and use hand sanitizer all the time. We have had contact with our children and have not become ill. If we follow all these precautions and what the ship is doing we feel the risk would be low. I know some will say that’s up to you, my son said bump it back. We don’t want to be afraid to enjoy life again, but want to know if we have considered all our options.
  8. We are one the Nov. 21 sailing excited to go, but still wary of what the shipboard requirements will be. We have spoke with Princess and there answer is they have no idea. I know there will be extra precautions prior to boarding like questionnaire, taking temperature, and other possible tests they deem necessary, no problem. I hope that masks will not be a requirement as going to pool and having a drink at the bar where i have met some great people and had great conversations will not be the same. Also how will they handle the theater? I can understand if that is what must be done then I will, have until July 31 to decide if I want to make final payment for this crusie. I t just will not be the same as the good old days of cruising, yes I know the times they are a changing. Any new information on what to expect will be greatly appreciated.
  9. Thanks for the information.
  10. Just booked British Isles next May do they offer the City stay program for Amsterdam? Agent said it was no posted information at this time. Has anyone done this in previous years? How was it and what was the cost? Do you recommend it? Also how far out can you get quote on Celebrity Air.
  11. Do they serve Casamigos ( George Clooneys brand) tequila on the edge, I assume it would be a premium brand?
  12. We are going on the cruise tour in June 2021 and we want to know which side of the ship is best port or starboard on a south bound sailing. We will be doing the land tour first then the cruise from Whittier to Vancouver, my wife has been watching videos and reading reviews and they stated you must be on the Port side for the best viewing. We know that they turn the ship in Glacier Bay so everyone gets a great view. What are your thoughts or is either side good.
  13. Another major event hit San Juan this week they have suffered enough the last year now an earthquake. I have read that some building were damaged severely in downtown area. Has this latest catastrophe caused the cruise line to change itinerary for upcoming cruises. We are on the Edge sailing Jan. 26. I cannot see adding to there stress by bringing in 4,000 people to an already stressed community. Any updates on all cruise line plans for this port in the near future.
  14. We are planning to book the May 28, 2020 12 day British Isles cruise and were looking for suggestions as to if there is a preferred or better side to book cabin on. Also is late May a good time of year for weather there? Any tips on tours in any of the ports would be helpful.. Are credit cards readily accepted in most ports? How much money should we convert to pounds ? Any other suggestions on making this trip great will be appreciated.
