  1. It is not; it's actually the 2023 Star Trek the Cruise, cruise
  2. thanks! I guess we will see as we get closer to sail date.
  3. Hello all - I’m booked on a charter and wondered if my diamond plus benefits are applicable on charter cruises?
  4. I rarely use FB but joined; and agreed. It will be interesting to see what happens. My final payment date isn't until the end of the month so I've been holding out final payment.
  5. This is pure speculation on my part; but with the info that's been posted. I wonder if they will cancel the passenger part of the cruise and use it to onboard crew for the Med season. It would be the perfect period of time to quarantine enroute to the Med. Also, I really hope not, I want to goto Ibiza. It's the entire reason I chose this voyage.
  6. Is anyone else checking to make sure Vision sails today as a precursor to our cruise?
  7. Or having adequate crew to facilitate the voyage with positives, and quarantines.
  8. It’s not far fetched. I unfortunately agree with you. I’m supposed to be sailing again on 1/10 and it seems less and less likely as the days progress.
  9. This was my first time on a quantum/ultra class ship; and I will be honest, I do not like the class (based upon Odyssey). I hated the lack of seating along the esplanade, the minimal outward facing windows, the views in the specialty restaurants. I just felt a lack of comfort on Odyssey that I haven't ever experienced on other ships. She felt tiny and cramped in ways I hadn't experienced before. I love the indoor Solarium, I love that it was very easy to take a shower with the bathroom door open and watch the sea go by. 270 is beautiful but I was not impressed with the way they had the lounge configured. I will also say that there was a stark difference between my sailing in November to December, in November we had around 600 less passengers and I could easily have a relaxing morning and make my way to the Solarium and grab a chair. In December most if not every chair was claimed around 8 AM and I ended up spending way more time on my balcony the second sailing. All those things being said, she was still better than being at work and while I didn't love the ship I did enjoy my sailings both times.
  10. Hey @CHRIS WONG do you know the passenger count for Odyssey Dec 4? TIA
  11. I had a similar thing a few years ago. I was working on booking my aunt and uncle a jet ski ride on coco cay. I inadvertently chose them both as a passenger and everytime I tried to run their card it said “declined”. It wasn’t until I fixed my mistake that it went through.
  12. I’m in a Facebook group for my upcoming Odyssey sailing in November and someone had reported back that some aspects of the key have returned; mainly early check-in and the boarding lunch. My boarding time is noon, so even if I get there at 11 it’s not that long for me to wait. Has anyone else experienced this in Port Everglades?
  13. We had a situation years ago where my brother and his girlfriend parted ways and our TA said that based on occupancy rules for the cabin it was better for us to change the name to a friend and check him in and have him not show. We asked around if anyone else wanted to join us; but, no one did. We swapped the name to my friend. We checked him in and kept the room. We got the port fees and taxes refunded back.
  14. Thank you! I wasn’t sure if they treated the pub like Playmakers.
  15. It is, I had it on Independence and it was a wonderful lunch spot.
  16. @Mattand any others that have sailed. With the udp is it still $20 at playmakers? Does the pub have an allowance as well? Thanks!
  17. I was just on Independence and there was no need to sign up. You’d show up and workout. The items were spaced appropriately.
  18. In the era of Covid are we still able to bring our own coffee cups?
  19. I have a feeling my nine night out of Galveston on Independence will be similar.
  20. Were you able to get three for you or three for your family? I wanted to stop and get them for my cruises and wasn't sure if I could only get one or multiple.
  21. I am on that same sailing and having the same issue.
