  1. Yes, my email came from Celebrity and stated it has been cancelled and provided what options would be available. I contacted my TA and sent her a copy of the letter. Here is the portion discussing the cancellation: Unfortunately, these deployment adjustments will require cancellation of your voyage aboard the Celebrity Equinox®. 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 Cele
  2. Same. May 2 Southern Caribbean. Actually happy to be able to reschedule and get the vaccine prior to cruising
  3. I am just happy that Idle Jottings is back in business. It was sorely missed. xo
  4. There are many here that are the Silent type. We just do not get involved and mind our own business.
  5. Some of us cashed out and bought real estate.....it is a boom here where I live in the lovely mountains of ?? 😉
  6. Actually, I read from a passenger onboard that the group of 5 all had a grand time in Miami prior to arriving in Barbados and the exposure has been limited to this group so far. Always a few selfish people everywhere that ruin it for the rest. SD is a wonderful cruise line, Very sad.
  7. I just saw a news report that 5 passengers have now tested Positive for Covid. It was from the NY Slime, so may have to be verified.
  8. We took Regatta to Alaska in May a few years ago out of SF. The weather was fabulous, no crowds, and Hubbard Glacier was up close and personal. A great trip and would love to do it again. A perfect size ship and dining on Terrace Cafe for breakfast watching all of the Eagles was so exciting.
  9. Wishing you and your wife an exceptional cruise. Enjoy the Sweet Life. Just stop being a hypocrite. We all choose our cabins for many different reasons. It is nobody's business but your own. Make sure you do not tell anyone on public forum or on board that you are sailing in the Owners Suite. You got caught 😉
  10. Majority of people do not care where you sleep. Normal people on cruises are here to see The World. It seems to me that wannabes are the only ones concerned about your sleeping and eating arrangements. Hawaiidan seems like a wannabe. Why else would he begrudge others for their choice of cabin?
  11. Nobody knows you are in a suite if you do not tell them. Just normal people that happen to like privacy and space.
  12. We happen to like the spaciousness of the suites. Typically, we sail in a suite on all cruise lines, including Oceania. Not party animals, like our privacy, not a" faux elite" either. Everybody has choices and it makes our cruising much more pleasurable.
  13. With Celebrity, it all depends on the itinerary. NO for the islands. However, we did an Asia cruise with them, Australia and New Zealand, all longer itineraries. The clientele on those cruises is similar to O, but maybe with a bit more energy 😉 Not a party animal either. However, we do cruise in Suite Class only with them. As for Luminae, we enjoy the quiet breakfast and nice lunch. We typically go to the specialty restaurants on board for dinner and pay the additional fee. Of course, when in a top Suite, they are free.
