  1. Surprising Had not heard anything about MMR vaccine being of any help re covid No interest in vaccine at this time. According to Mayo MDs we spoke with-- they aren't even excited about the "antibodies" testing as being reliable ...and there is no knowledge of "for how long" or if those antibodies really do protect one. I have wondered if those who normally don't get a flu vaccine (or the pneumonia one if one is age-eligible) will get them. Less than half those who can get a flu vax do so Have wondered how many get the shingles vax
  2. Correct In our case our B2B is on Mera and she wasn't moved. We have our YC stateroom reserved for both legs. I read postings from someone who was booked on a short (like 4 day) sailing on Seaside and she got moved to a 7 day on Meraviglia. Thats a great deal-- as she doesn't have to pay for those extra days!
  3. Hey there In the end we booked with the same agency but different agent World of difference. This one is really on top of things Although there have been weird things on the website--she's be able to assure us our cabin for B2B is indeed secured. Lets hope it stays that way OBCs in place etc... We've gone ahead and booked 3 sailings with her. I had reached out to several other TAs found online etc...and despite multiple phone calls and email--they never responded. I had even reached out via the agency FB pages.

  5. We loved the Meraviglia that said Haven't sailed Divinia. Have you sailed Seaside before? If you loved Seaside--folks who like Seaside better --because of the pool area on Seaside being much much bigger and there are many on deck cabanas for rent... and the YC dining and lounge are connected internally VS Meraviglia- smaller YC pool area, 3 cabanas--2 of which are for RS only, so the 3rd is rented/arranged between the rest of those who want to rent it... YC dining and lounge are accessed via crystal stairs in hall or elevator
  6. TY Haven't been on the boards to look. We have enough shares to manage the shareholders discount (IF they keep it in the coming year/s)
  7. Did yall see the news re RCL and this https://www.cruisehive.com/royal-caribbean-owned-cruise-line-files-for-reorganization/40250
  8. OK with the various news from CCL and MSC... Do we have any more timely news from RCl and Celebrity for fall sailing?
  9. I mis posted for Greenland..this is regaring SAGA ICELAND We booked and paid in full in July 2019 for a tour in Aug 2020 Terms/conditions are that the payment is fully refundable We cancelled the tour in March 2020--and have a chain of email whereby Saga agrees to fully refund us. Then they never do-- They send a "screen shot" of a "refund" yet VISA states that SAGA never did the transfers in the banking system and it is just an "admin" internal screen shot Then SAGA ignores additional emails AND takes down their website We have the booking docs with the terms to be fully refundable...and the email chain Still SAGA has claimed to "comply" with the terms and conditions (to VISA) -and yet has still not refunded us (its' June) So we will be sending supporting docs. DO NOT BOOK with SAGA. They do not honor their terms/conditions.
  10. This was for our ICELAND tour. I will repost.

  12. The big box TAs gave better deals with the main lines The specialty TA for Regent was a rec from someone who sails Regent OFTEN (super highest loyalty) and rec. the TA as good. So we thought we'd give it a go. The Regent sailing isn't til 2021 so time will tell if he's as good as they said. The TA that handles Regent and other lux brands does not handle the main line lower brands
  13. Hi Bermuda I dont think its the agency--as we can book MSC online with them-- We had gotten her in the initial booking when we called the number-- We wanted to get the same cabin for the B2B and had some other things to attend to. we were trying to be nice, loyal and make sure she got the coin... I realize MSC can be a pill.. but this is 2 YC B2B fares -- we'd be losing cash back not using her.. Am going to look for a new TA and see what they can do
  14. TY everyone I appreciate hearing your thoughts on the TA--- I suspect it is a "side" job and she's not committed to the agency etc We were trying to be loyal--assuming she got commissions and this is a B2B YC like our last one We'll be looking for someone new/new agency for MSC sailings... We use someone different for Regent ...and another still for Celebrity and Azamara and NCL...
