  1. Thanks for the picture. Our cruise will not be until 2021, so we have time.
  2. We are considering Princess, because of itinerary not offered on Celebrity. According to their website, there are 3 levels of balcony. Can you tell me what level balcony you were in. These balconies are from Sky Princess, a new ship debuting 2019. Thanks Tom Premium Deluxe Balcony Choose this premium option of a Balcony stateroom with a larger balcony to take in the spectacular views. Balcony Deluxe Enjoy this enhanced version of a Balcony stateroom with more space, a comfortable sofa bed and a larger balcony to take in the spectacular views. Balcony
  3. We have been on two Azamara cruises and I have never seen a river cruise listed. Their ships are smaller than mainstream lines, but too big for Danube locks. We cruised on the Danube with Vantage.
  4. We had a people to people event every day of our Pearl Seas cruise to Cuba.
  5. DW says no Australia while her mom is alive(now 98). It is on our shared bucket list. I may even hook up with some cousins that I met in Ireland at last family reunion. Two of my grandfather's siblings emigrated to Oz. I would like to visit all of those Parks. Next year is a 50th anniversary Caribbean cruise with DD, DSIL and 3 DGC, 2 of whom have Cystic Fibrosis. Very big deal and a bucket list item.
  6. We have visited many of our shared bucket list sites. DW-every covered bridge in the world, Greek islands, Roman ruins, Galapagos, Antarctica, National Parks Me- Antarctica, Galapagos, every US National Park, Roman ruins, Greek islands, 7 continents, scenic train trips, 3 walls, Great wall of China, Hadrian's wall and Berlin wall remnant Achieved- 575 covered bridges, China and Hadrian's walls, about 180 US Parks, another 30 worldwide, Antarctica, Galapagos, Santorini, Mykonos Ephesus, Parthenon, Toronto to Vancouver rr trip, 48 U.S. states, 7 Canadian provinces, 5 continents(missing Australia and Africa), about 50 countries, various day rr trips, U.S., Switzerland, Norway, Canada. Mexico Copper Canyon rr trip.
  7. DW and I went on a Cuba cruise this past February with Pearl Seas and I am glad that we went then. Sorry to hear about cancelled Cuba cruises for everyone. If you ever go on a Cuba cruise in the future, try to find an an itinerary with more than Havana. Prices for rum/cigars about double in Havana vs, Santiago de Cuba. The sanctions should have had a better grandfather clause. Just my opinion.
  8. Even if you don't use a TA, you can sign up for their newsletter, which will feature last minute bargains.
  9. I would also consider Celebrity and Azamara
  10. Thanks Steve, my brain overloaded with Azamara rules.
  11. I am not an expert on this, but I will try. The Azamara free nights perk is only for moving from 1 loyalty level to another with Celebrity Az cruises only. In addition, you must have cruised with Az at least once in the last 2 years and 50% of Az/X total cruises must be with Az. Go to their website for a better explanation. If you have an Az/X account, your cruises are listed by cruise line. I have 8 X, and 2 Az. I need 2 more Az to be eligible. Also, I must book within 1 year of moving to new level. Very complicated!! I suggest you go to Az website if you think that you are eligible.
  12. I added up my sea/river cruise days: 177 sea days-Celebrity, Hurtigruten, Alaska Cruise West, Azamara, RCI and Pearl Seas 32 river days(Vantage-Europe, Russia, China) total 209, 19 cruises
