The scuttlebut on the Smooth Jazz FB discussion group is that people who called ECP today were told Celebrity agreed to the cancellation and everyone will get an email tomorrow. I did not call so I can't verify that claim.

Very, very interesting.  Thanks for sharing and please keep us posted.

So it's confirmed 🤥

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO GUESTS

ON OUR '22 PROGRAMS

 

BIG PICTURE

 

 

The CDC has declared it is unsafe to cruise regardless of your vaccination status.

There continues to be a nationwide rise in COVID-19 transmission rates and reported infections on cruise ships.

In response, Jazz Cruises has cancelled its programs scheduled for January '22.

’22 Guests may elect to receive a refund, apply their ’22 payments to an existing ’23 reservation or complete a ’23 reservation now.

 

PERSONAL NOTE

 

 

" For more than 21 years Jazz Cruises has presented the highest quality cruise programs earning its reputation as the Gold Standard of Jazz At Sea. The decision not to sail will be a financial hardship for Jazz Cruises, one that could have been avoided by sailing. However, given CDC's unequivocal warning as to the risks of sailing regardless of one's vaccination status, nothing we can do will make our guests feel safe, nor help us produce cruise programs that guarantee their maximum enjoyment. For those and the other reasons stated above, Jazz Cruises will not sail in ’22, but is looking forward to a great ’23 season."

 

—Michael Lazaroff, Executive Director of Jazz Cruises

Yep -- it's official -- all 4 of the '22 Jazz Cruises are cancelled. Looks like we'll be able to transfer credit for our 'Back to Sea' cruise to our existing '23 Blue Note at Sea cruise booking. Fingers crossed that next years' cruises happen!

Oh, and a heads-up to anyone thinking of booking a 2023 Jazz Cruise, Smooth Jazz Cruise, or Blue Note at Sea sailing. You might want to book those as soon as possible. They were already selling better than expected. And now, those displaced '22 jazz cruisers (four sailings, total) are being given the option of transferring their bookings to one of the 2023 cruises. So, I think that they are going to book-up fast! Fortunately, we already had a '23 Blue Note at Sea booking, where we can transfer our cruise credit (for this canceled cruise). And, thank goodness that we're not scrambling to find a cabin that we'd like -- since we booked early. 🙂

Just saw that David Sanborn is joining the cast of featured performers, on January's Blue Note at Sea Cruise. This line-up just gets better and better (and there are still good cabins available)! 😎
