  1. But we enjoy dining nightly with people we travel with One or two nights sp restaurants work
  2. We have an end of May cruise booked- and an August 2021 back-up. Hope that we have had the vaccine by then- at least for the August cruise.
  3. We sailed on a small ship 35 years ago touring the greek islands- it had zero bells and whistles and was great for sightseeing- also an old Celebrity ship- the Galaxy, which was our first mainstream cruise. Now, we actually prefer newer ships with all of the the bells and whistles, while we do not go zip lining- fun to see and watch as well as all of the other entertainment venues. We really enjoy choice of dining and activities now.
  4. Many young peole are carrying the virus and don’t get it or get a mild case. If you are over 50 hypertensive, obese or have medical issues, you might not be so lucky. those who are smokers and already have lung damage are also vulnerable to serious covid
  5. So many young people not wearing masks and socialize. Then bring home to vulnerable family members. Stay home! Order in groceries and take out. We can beat this. Vaccines on the way. Then we can cruise again
  6. We also enjoy sailing out of cape liberty in August and are now booked on the Oasis of the Seas. The itinerary isn't to Bermuda, but the ship is wonderful and we enjoy Nassau, coco cay and cape canaveral-not so much. But great to enjoy the ship.
  7. Having sailed a few times on Princess, on NCL and Many times on Celebrity, I can honestly say that Celebrity is the best. Found Princess very "plain Vanilla" and service fair- NCL unless the Haven a zoo. Seemed much too crowded and the food fair. The staterooms not comfortable. I would really recommend Celebrity- I am not a fan of AQ and would tell you to either book a sky suite if you can, or stick to a well located balcony cabin. Mid ship with cabins above and below. Enjoy your cruise
  8. Yes, but you might be charged to go to Luminae. If you can swing it, I highly recommend you both consider suite class. The perks are wonderful. The suite lounge is great and if you have AQ you cannot use it. Many other great suite perks- look at the listing on Celebrity website. AQ is a regular balcony stateroom with some IMO fluff perks- lotions, horrible tea, etc. Blu is ok, but not great- And the thermal rooms, also not great, small and hot. If you like you can try it for a small daily fee. We went once and were very disappointed. If you do not want a suite, consider a well located
  9. An agent from Celebrity corporate called me back. She is working on my issue. Hope to report all is well by next week.
  10. We cancelled March but are having difficulty with Celebrity! Hope that we get our money back or credit This is the second cruise to be cancelled and Celebrity is really giving us a hard time. We originally paid over $8000 in full, for an edge cruise that got postponed due to covid from last march. Changed to the Equinox cruise for this march, postponed that one due to covid and the fact that it was a nine night cruise to another cruise next march. Got an e-mail from Celebrity that they wouldn't apply the $8000 to the new cruise- even though the agent on the phone assured me it was fine-
  11. We have an Equinox March 12, 2021 cruise, it is 9 days- haven't heard anything yet. We assume it will be cancelled. Surprised you got a letter about May.
  12. Well if passengers can only sail 7-day maximum, how come the crew can stay on board for months? Many get a day off and enter ports making them vulnerable to potential covid? Will they be tested weekly? Sometimes covid takes 14 days before symptoms appear and the person might be contagious.
  13. We had an owners suite on the Adventure. It was very disappointing. One night, they were doing something on the pool deck! We heard jackhammers going for two hours! Also, on the Adventure the suite lounge was a joke! And no true suite deck. They did compensate us- but is it worth it? Save your money and book a cabin mid-ship with cabins above and below! A different story on the Oasis class ships. Especially the Harmony or Symphony
