  1. If its an Alaska itinerary then this is a cancellation notice of your cruise
  2. I edited in the post as not sure how to in the title. edit...done
  3. https://www.princess.com/plan/impacted-and-cancelled-cruises/?cid=pr_social_socialorganic_TWITTER_engagement_brand_na_na_na&linkId=88077913 Dont shoot the messenger but I can see other cruise lines going the same way. Edit...Not all, but most
  4. We already have a FFC from the cancelled cruise that the OP was posting about. Our Fjords sailing on the Silhouette is now approaching final payment, which we were never going to pay. As we had booked the cruise while on board a previous sailing we were able to transfer the booking to the same itinerary in 2021, albeit with an extra sea day, same ship, and almost identical dates, as well. In addition we were able to keep the same perks, Celebrity even gave us a cabin upgrade. Even with all that the price we are paying is only within a few pounds of the original booking. So they have done alright by us.
  5. First of all, can I thank the OP for this thread. Understandably this forum recently has been full of posts about cancellations, refunds, FFC's etc. Its nice to go back to someone seeking advice on ships and itinerary. Can I say all of them look good. Personally if you are coming across the Pond, unless you have some land trips planned either pre or post cruise then a 7 night cruise is not worth the hassle. Identifying ports, we have done all of them except Kotor, which we are told we have to do. Actually just remembered we should have done Katakolon last summer on the Edge, but owing to weather conditions in the Aegean which meant we (Captain Kate) had to juggle the itinerary, as a result we ended up in Crete in the port of Chania, which we hadn't expected and we really enjoyed. As far as the ship is concerned we haven't sailed on the Connie, however we have sailed on her sister the Summit, and Connie gets posts on here from previous cruisers saying how they love her. Cards on the table, its the 10 night Venice to Venice for me. Which ever you choose one day on a cruise is better than one day in work. Take care all, and stay safe

  7. Well we finally bit the bullet and jumped ship, (excuse the cliches). We have transferred our booking on the Silhouette Fjords sailing from this summer to next Augusts sailing , an identical itinerary but with an extra sea day. We just didn't think it was worth waiting for any updates as we approach final payment at the end of May. We already have a FFC from a cancelled Caribbean sailing on the Reflection last month, so wouldn't have been looking to take another one, nor did we want more money tied up with Celebrity than we had to. We'll be looking to use that voucher for our Mardi Gras sailing to New Orleans next February on the Equinox.. Our TA was able to ensure we got all the existing perks transferred over to the new booking and also to make sure we got the same stateroom, at the same price we had paid for this years. Surprisingly Celebrity offered us an upgrade from a C3 Concierge cabin to a C2 at no extra cost, so we took that as well. Stay safe everyone
  8. Really looking forward to the review. We should be getting off the Reflection tomorrow 24th having just done that itinerary
  9. We would have just landed in Atlanta connecting through to Fort Lauderdale. See you at the Virtual Sunset Bar at Sailaway
  10. Our Virgin outbound flight from the UK to Atlanta on the 11th April has disappeared from our booking. The Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale connection is still there , as is the return connection to JFK. The JFK back to the UK is now a day later leaving us a 29 hour lay over in New York. Our TA can’t get any info from Virgin as they are dealing with passengers travelling in the next 72 hours. At least now Celebrity has cancelled our 13th April Reflection cruise we can get a refund off them.
  11. No it is no different in the UK. I was asking the person who said it couldn't be used on existing bookings made before this crisis started where they had seen this information.
  12. Can you show me where it says you can't because I cant find anything that suggests otherwise. We have two future cruises booked going forward, if I cant apply the FCC to one of them then I will just take the 100% cash refund
  13. No mention anywhere of 6th March Q: Can you use your Future Cruise Credit (FCC) on an existing booking? A: Yes. FCCs can be applied to an existing booking.
