  1. I've got two cruises booked (rebooked from previous cruises). One on May 2nd, 2021 on the Liberty of the Seas and one in July 2021 on a Celebrity ship. Neither are paid off. Normally, I pay my cruises off as early as possible. Now, I don't want to pay them off until the last possible minute. The May 2nd cruise has phenomenal perks due to being canceled (by RCL) and rescheduled twice. I thought the May 2nd cruise would be safe but now it's beginning to look there's a real possibility they won't be sailing by then. I am really tired of rebooking but I hate to lose those perks. I love cruising bu
  2. Is there still any method to get lower fares for a "last minute" cruise? I am particularly interested in cruises from Galveston.
  3. Well, I had to cancel our 11/21 Apex cruise due to health issues. I will say this, I know Celebrity is owned by the Royal Caribbean Group, but I have NEVER had the problems with Royal Caribbean that I have had with Celebrity. Now I know why they're really pushing the FCCs because I would not have booked another Celebrity cruise if I wasn't going to lose a bunch of money by not using the FCCs. Trying to get them to acknowledge that I even had FCCs, tried to do a lift and shift (that was another nightmare) and then book another cruise for July 2021on the Equinox and then get those FCCs applied t
  4. I paid for all the fares for a family cruise on Celebrity. When that cruise was canceled, Celebrity was going to assign the FCC to each individual. I called them and talked to someone who couldn't help and then bumped me up to their supervisor. When I told them to look at the credit card number for each payment (which was mine) they finally agreed to give me the full FCC for all. Just keep pushing it up the line. Of course, I was on the phone for almost two hours.
  5. After canceling our July 4th cruise, we also booked the Nov. 21st Apex cruise. Now, I'm wondering if that cruise will happen. We've decided that we will not cancel this cruise, it will have to actually be canceled by Celebrity.
  6. Waaaytooo, Thank-you for the response! That was great information!
  7. We just booked a one bedroom Grand Suite on the Liberty of the Seas for May 2021. This will be our first time in a suite! We've never had the concierge service before. Can anyone tell us what he/she does? Any other good tips about suite benefits? We are (newly) diamond level if that makes any difference. Thanks!
  8. Given all the cruise cancelations, I think prudence dictates that I don't pay anything more than the absolute minimal deposit on a cruise right up to the last possible day. During "normal" times, there is no motivation from the cruise lines to pay in full in advance other than the personal satisfaction of having the cruise paid for. Actually, you might be denying yourself the benefit of a price reduction. Now, if you pay in full in advance, you don't know if you're going to get a refund, a future cruise credit or maybe, nothing at all. I know all about the current "Cruise with Confidence" prog
  9. Right now, I don't care where I eat lunch just so long as I am ON THAT SHIP!!!
  10. When it comes to cruising, I am not interested in a "new normal." Wearing a mask is, for me, an absolute deal breaker. I can not imagine going on a cruise and wearing a mask. I would only go on a cruise to get away from all this and to relax and have fun.
  11. We have a Celebrity cruise booked out of Florida for November 21st. We have the same questions you do. Now, there is also the question of whether Celebrity might require you to wear a mask during the cruise - which is unacceptable to us. We will wait until August and then decide whether to cancel or not.
  12. I would cruise tomorrow - as long as I don't have to wear a mask.
  13. Will Liberty of the Seas still have the Sabor restaurant after the March 2021 upgrade?
  14. I use a clock app on my kindle (which I leave plugged in all night). This way I get a clock and a night light with no extra stuff to carry.
  15. I would not be embarrassed to order two entrees but normally if I order any multiples - it is the appetizers.
