Yep, we just received a mail notification for our 28 March cruise.  We get a full cash refund and 25% FCC, which is more than decent. Well done on them for taking care of us!

March, April, and May - she’s coming back to the West Coast of North America.

except the whole point the OP kept making was since Celebrity was so ‘shameful’ on how they handled this situation they will never cruise with them again and refused an FCC.....so the 25% FCC is.a waste for them.......I’ll take it!!

Den,

 

I'm absolutely certain the OP will not accept any future cruise credit.  They made it clear they will NEVER sail Celebrity again.  It's clear from all of their posts the "principle" is the driving force in all their decisions.  The fact you would even raise this question makes me think you are a jaded, cynical, skeptical person.  For shame!

Spoke to our cruise coordinator yesterday the millennium is not going into Singapore. The 15th is cancelled. We are on 29th. Told we will be cancelled. Just waiting to hear officially.

We were on the Feb 1 sailing and booked b2b for the 15th. This info is more or less exactly what the crew members onboard Millennium told us initially around the 8th Feb, though Celebrity then officially denied the info re cancellations on the roll calls and insisted that the 15th sailing will go ahead.

The way I see it they got what they wanted.  Cynical or not.

 

It's the apologists who still can't see the irony.

My exact thoughts when we got our email tonight! Exactly what you were told on board? Even down to where the ship was relocating too! 😏

Perhaps a little less melodrama and a lot more thought about the global problems created by this outbreak might help you to understand that Celebrity is operating in a very new and extremely fluid environment with few, if any, precedents to guide them. A quick fix is seldom a good one, so give them time to work it out.

Less than two weeks. A little patience would have gone a long way.

It just wouldn't have been as dramatic... OR as much fun.

I really hope Celebrity offers FCC to those of us booked on 2-1 that flew through HK and were denied boarding because of that. I am open to sailIng Celebrity again - especially if they make some effort to recognize those of us caught in the crossfire date.

It would not hurt to give them a call or better yet drop an email to celebrityonetouch.com...

What is interesting to find out is that the ship had made a port stop in Hong Kong a few days earlier, and many B2B passengers and crew who were allowed on the Feb 1 cruise went ashore.  It has also been reported that there were many cases of the flu on that cruise (or possibly the prior one.)

So my comment of a few pages back that the cruise would likely be cancelled anyway, and which was derided by some, has come to pass.

Definitely not calling them. Some random salesperson won’t have any clue. 
 

But I will try to email them. Thanks. We shall see 

 

I told my TA today I need to give it some time before I can book another adventurous cruise like this. So much time and energy planning and such a disappointing end and treatment of passengers.  
 

However looking at various cruise line threads and cruises being quarantined/prevented from docking it’s been a tough ride for all lines and passengers at this time. I think the lines that will keep loyal passengers are those that make it right, or make an effort. Which I know is subjective.   It will be interesting to see wheee we are 6-12 months from now.
