  1. Absolutely and what a great film. Watched it countless times and yes , the music is perfect. Ann.
  2. https://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/news/5950/ Hopefully this is the link for voting.
  4. Hi Dean, It’s a great feeling isn’t it when the refund actually hits your Bank account? We are still puzzled with the randomness of the refunds for this 22/5/20 Serenity cruise, as our refund was made two months ago on 24/11/20. Stay safe and with luck we’ll be cruising again in the not too distant future. Ann & Paul.
  5. I really hope it will soon be your turn! Do post when you get your good news. Ann.
  6. Yes, we have. See our post at the top of this page.
  7. Hi Dean, it seems like we’ve known you for years! Such a shame the Meet and Mingle wasn’t to materialise ~ they are usually good fun and an ice breaker. We heard from our TA a few days back about the refund, but thought we’d keep quiet until the funds were with us. It certainly is a relief and by posting our news, we thought it would give the rest of you new hope. It surely can’t be much longer now, as we hadn’t done any more than wait reasonably patiently. Easy to say now the waiting is over!! Anyway, do post when you have received your refund. We’ll continue to follow the boards. Ann.
  8. SERENITY departures 22nd. May and 31st. May. Hello to SusieQft, Dean, André and all others on here who were booked on the above cruises. After 236 days, we have today received a full refund for both these cruises cancelled on 2nd. April by Crystal. Our TA has kept up the pressure and achieved the right result. Needless to say we are relieved and sincerely hope you all will soon be refunded. We still love Crystal and will book again once it is really safe to travel and we have been vaccinated. We’ll keep following these boards ~ it’s become a regular habit!! Susie, many thanks to you for maintaining the amazing spreadsheet. We are sure, in due course, that our refund will be shown against our two cruises. These are numbers 59 & 70 on the spreadsheet. Our patience has paid off at last. Keep well everyone, Ann & Paul.
  9. Be sure to take a tour on the Conch Train whilst you are visiting. It’s great fun. I cannot seem to paste a link on here, but just Google ‘Conch Train’. It’s 10 years since we were there, but I believe it’s pronounced ‘Conk’ ?
  10. Our May back to back cruise was cancelled by Crystal on 2nd. April. 7 months ago tomorrow. Be prepared for a long wait. We also booked through a TA in the U.K. and no sign of a refund yet.
  11. That’s not a saying I know here in the South!! 😂 If and when we get our refund, I’ll be posting the good news on here first !!
  12. I seem to recall we are in the same situation as you, in that our cruises were booked through a TA. Our cruise was cancelled by Crystal on 2nd. April, so we are now at 210 days and no direct contact from Crystal. Our TA is chasing Crystal’s London agent - Cruise Portfolio, Wells Street, London. Only yesterday the latest was that they ‘have high hopes and it’s taking longer than anticipated’. It’s so depressing to see on the spreadsheet that refunds are being made where the cancellation and cruise dates were later than mine or where card disputes have been raised with Crystal. There is no obvious refund system whatsoever.
  13. Patty, we agree with you ~ there is no detectable system to the refund order. It is particularly galling to see refunds being made for later cancellation and cruise dates to ours. Our 22nd. May back to back cruise was cancelled by Crystal on 2nd. April and at nearly 7 months since cancellation, we are still hanging on for a full refund of the cruise, port fees and flights. Booked through a TA in the U.K. so not easy to dispute through our card company. It is heartening to see some people are getting their refunds. Ann.
  14. So pleased you have your full refund and yes ~ a great relief! This gives us hope. Our wait so far is just edging 200 days. I feel prompted to contact our travel agent today for their update. Ann.
