  1. Received my cruise deposit refund today for Feb 2021 cruise I canceled before final payment due on June 2. I’m satisfied and feeling a bit better.
  2. Ok, like I said - cancel one cruise and rebook another BUT the deposit itself is transferred over to the new booking with the date of the transaction in my cruise confirmation as the date from the original booking.
  3. Well I guess it depends on how finicky you are about cabin selection and how much the deposit is. We personally book early so we get the cabin we want. Yup, cabin selection is a biggie for us. Right now 2 cruises booked for 2022. I think 2021 is still an unknown. But if losing that deposit if things fall through is a big deal then you may want to hold off a bit. Can UK passengers change to a different cruise and use the deposit from the first one if something comes up and you have to rebook? In the US if I cancel one cruise and rebook another the PCC will just transfer the deposit over to the new cruise. And I agree - it’s nice to have a cruise to look forward to given all this chaos right now.
  4. No survey here either. 😞 One benefit I wish they would offer to Plat Plus or Haven passengers is unlimited internet! I’d rather have that than shore excursion credits. I have even written to management suggesting that but no reply. As to paying for any other extras, I guess it depends on what is offered and how much they are charging.
  5. They bring the food from the ship so I felt it was similar to the ship buffets. Ok but not great.
  6. auto tripper has previously started a roll call for the July 14, 2022 Star Cruise here on May 14 before you started your thread. Can you combine yours with this one?
  7. We picked the cruise with 3 ports in Greenland so we have an extra sea day and longer cruise. We plan to get to Reykjavik a few days early to tour.
  8. Same one we are doing. Already looking at ports and excursion possibilities.
  9. Are you doing the 11 day or 10 day itinerary? We are booked on the 11-day one and already overwhelmed with our research! We can’t wait.
  10. My sister and I are booked on the 11 day Star Iceland-Greenland Cruise. It’s a great and unique itinerary and a wonderful opportunity to get to both islands. Now how to get to Grimsey Island and inside the Arctic Circle.
  11. There are two different Hilton hotels in Reykjavik near city center - Canopy by Hilton Reykjavik City Centre and Reykjavik Konsulat Hotel, Curio by Hilton. Anyone have any insights on which is the better location. TIA
  12. Do you know if the overhang in 11550 or 11050 is a problem?
  13. Looking at mid 2022. Should have vaccine by then or Covid should be burned out. If not, we can cancel. But do you have any info about the best 2 bedroom suite to book?
  14. Thanks. We were thinking 11550. Will book that suite. First cruise for other traveler and concerned with going further forward.
  15. Looking at booking a cruise on the Star and looking at the 2 bedroom cabins. We would prefer to not be right across from the stairwell/elevators but also not under the pool deck and need some advice which 2 bedroom is a good location. Anyone been on the Star In a 2 bedroom and have suggestions? TIA
