  1. Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I am completely fine if they are not able to accommodate a test time for us. I am definitely not trying to make the process more difficult for the staff. I am just trying to wrap my head around the process travelers are experiencing. I am trying to evaluate if I would need to plan for anther test in FLL or Miami. I would definitely want to arrange for that ahead of time 🙂. I believe it would work for us even if they do it the Friday (25th) of the cruise, as I believe based on the three days (72 hours) the Friday would work with a Monday departure (28th)?
  2. Upon reading that thread it is in fact one of the ones I already read. It was helpful. I am trying to see if there is consistency in the process. She said there appeared to be no leniency in the test appointment scheduling, and that she did not have a date and time on her print out. I am trying to see if others have experienced a similar situation, and if anyone had issues with the date on their test results print out showing the result date not the test date.
  3. Thanks I didn't read through that post - I will look through it now. I just seen one that was specifically about PCR testing and being Canadian. I tried to search but the threads I pulled wasn't specific to my questions. Thanks again for passing it along.
  4. Additional Info: I will be sailing out of FLL - Caribbean Cruise.
  5. Hi Everyone, I read one individuals experience with disembarkation PCR testing (Canada requirement for re-entry). I am looking to see what others have experienced. We would be disembarking on a Saturday, however not flying on until Monday. We must take a test within 72 hours of the scheduled departure time of our flight to Canada. My questions are: 1. Will Celebrity provide us with our test even if we have post cruise plans (our flights are through Celebrity - staying 2 nights post cruise) 2. What experience did you have when scheduling your tests pre-embarkation? What day(s) were testing? Was there flexibility or able to request the morning of disembarkation? 3 How are the test results given? 4. What is on the test results provided by the Cruise line? I seen some say there is no date/time stamps for the actual day the test was taken, it just notes the day the results were provided. I am trying to see if we can swing being tested onboard that would meet our pre-arrival testing requirements.
  6. Thank you everyone! You have all provided me with some great information and options. 🙂 it will help us make a well informed decision on how to map out our trip. It is greatly appreciated.
  7. What is it like to drive from Civitavecchia to Tuscany? I was interested in staying in the Tuscany area, but wasn't certain how doable it would be for 3 nights and then returning to to fly back home out of FCO. Is a day trip to Tuscany doable from Rome via rail? We also like variety, and want to try and experience as much as we can. Amalfi Coast also looks lovely, I just wasn't certain how rushed it would feel to travel there for a few nights with luggage and back to FCO. There will be 4 of us with large luggage.
  8. Thanks for the input. it is appreciated. I will make the recommendation to my group to venture back into Rome 🙂
  9. Hi Everyone, I am sailing out of Civitavecchia for a 10N Med cruise (other Italian ports are Naples, Livorno, and Messina). We are thinking of staying two nights in Rome prior to sailing to take in the city sights. Since we disembark on a Wednesday, we would like to take advantage of our time in Italy and stay 3 nights post cruise. I am looking for recommendations. Any insight on an area to extend our trip including accommodations, and transportation recommednations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  10. Thank you for your input and advising me of your experience! Yes, I was aware of losing the promotional value of the cruise certificate if I rebook the same cruise. 🙂
  11. Hi Everyone, I have a FirstCruise Cert that I applied towards a 2023 cruise sailing. I know have a family member that has become a cruise consultant, that is able to offer me more than the value of the cruise first certificate promotional value. I know that I can't use the promotional value of the certificate with an agent booking. Has anyone had experience with applying the amount paid for the certificate to an agent booked cruise? I just don't want to lose out on the original value I paid. I know it states that it is not valid with agent fares, and it is non refundable, but I wasn't sure if I could just apply the balance paid toward an agent booked cruise. If anyone has nay insight it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  12. Has anyone had experience with NCL Flights from: YYZ to Singapore Bangkok to YYZ i know flight times can ray between 22 to 40 hours. I want to take advantage of the flight savings for a 2023 cruise but I am interested in others past experience. Obviously I’d prefer not to have a 30 plus our flight, it it’s a risk and chance when taking advantage of their flight perk. Any input is appreciated. Thank you
  13. Thanks everyone. I usually do check the floor above and below my cabin selection. 🙂 It was 100% an oversight on my part. We are late night and early risers on vacation. I will maybe adjust it just to be safe. Thanks for your input, it is greatly appreciated.
  14. I think you misunderstood...It wasn’t the only option, I just didn’t notice until after I booked. I wasn’t sure if it would be a big deal and if I should worry about it and change it.
  15. Hi Everyone, I just put a deposit down on a 2022 cruise. I chose cabin 5100 at the end of the hallway on deck 5. I come to realize that this cabin is below the theatre. Does anyone have any reviews or input on this cabin and location? Do they practice late at night/ early in the morning? I may change it to another cabin outside of the theatre area...the other option is under the supper club. Thanks in advance. Wendy
