    So can we assume that you have been told not to tell us, or is it that you can't tell us that you were told not to tell us? You know what I mean?

    sk8erguy1978 reacted to Ampurp85 in Which cruise to make final payment?   
    If I was a betting woman, sometimes I am, I would say Liberty. But that's only if you don't take the advice to cancel both and book something more guaranteed. I think Liberty will be one of the next few ships to sail or start test cruises in 2021. Grandeur from Barbados seems like a long shot, might go the way of Bermuda.

    Yikes !  Those protocols for Barbados are ridiculous.  I agree with @Ampurp85….looks like Barbados will be the new Bermuda. I have a Feb 2022 cruise on Grandeur out of Barbados but even if I were vaccinated (which I am not), I wouldn’t go through with all of that nonsense.  Looks like another refund for me…

    Final payment is due mid-September right? 
    Things are changing so quickly week to week so I would put off considering your choices until Labor day.  It's too early to know what will happen in December.

    Hit the liquor store today to restock on beer and wine, decided I wanted to also get dark rum to make Dark & Stormy's here at home. Just wanted a small bottle, but the Goslings Black Seal was only available in the huge ones. Since the "official" rum wasn't to be had in a size that I'd need about 2 years to finish off, I went to... let's admit it... the better option. And look what I found sitting on the shelf!

    I've locked it away where @twangster can't find it. Can't have him absconding this rare find! ?

    sk8erguy1978 got a reaction from Neesa in On Board Credits from Travel Agencies   
    I understand you're looking for the best deal, sometimes that might come in some form of "guaranteed" kick back. Honestly, I wouldn't choose an agent for what they may or may not kick back to me. A lot of the time (and correct me if I am wrong travel agents) the thank you gift you may or may not receive comes directly out of their commission. Given no income for the last year+, I don't want ANY of their commission, just their great service.
    My agent is Kathy from MEI and she's been great. I don't expect or want anything from her. She provided a service and was compensated accordingly by the cruise line.
    I don't know much (okay anything) about CruCon - a quick Google it appears to be a big - don't know your agent on a personal level - agency (although it does have excellent Google reviews). As stated by @wordell1 in these times personalized service is worth way more than $50-$100 (5%-10%) OBC kick back for every $1000 I spend with them.
    Again, I (as many here will) suggest any agent from MEI, they all have rave reviews around here.

    She tested positive.  End of story. 
    The mix up that resulted in her getting a bracelet did not cause her to become infected.   
    She knows her vaccination status.  She chose to play like she was vaccinated using the bracelet to go into areas she knows she didn't belong.  The signs don't say "purple bracelets only", the signs read "Vaccinated Guest Area".  She knew she was breaking the rules.

    Got a free ride home in a private jet.  Hard to complain about that.
    Mixups are going to happen.  No system will ever be perfect.   
    She needs to take accountability for her actions rather than trying to cast shade on the cruise industry.

    So, I'd say I'm sorry for not posting more, but I'm really not.  This is an absolutely enjoyable cruise and part of that is that I'm giving myself time to unplug and stay away from connected devices, something I haven't been able to do in a couple years.  I'm still taking some photos, but more than likely the bulk of the rest of the posts will be done after I get back.  Just having too good of a time with everything else.  Did do the Sushi and Sake thing today, I remember a few people asking about it a few months ago.  All I'll say is... WORTH IT.  Like seriously, worth it.  Although they did start laughing at me after I asked for the third bowel of wasabi.  Sorry, not sorry.

    sk8erguy1978 reacted to JLMoran in Norwegian sues Florida over mandatory vaccine ban   
    See, I disagree for the exact reason you just gave. This is a free market and if FL's law didn't block it, NCL could require proof of vaccination while RCL and Carnival don't. Consumers have choice here, they can choose to sail on a fully vaccinated sailing or one that's mixed vax'ed / unvax'ed. Market will speak, all businesses get to operate and see who has the more desirable / profitable option.
    Yes, I'm aware that prior to this law going into effect that RCL was also going to have only fully vax'ed sailings in FL as well. But Carnival notably wasn't, and was proudly marketing that fact. So even then you still had a free-market system working. But it was never given a chance to play out because Florida's governor decided he knew better, and IMO overreached badly with this blanket law that impacts every business.

    We are Shelby & Bob and just added the 1-23 cruise to our existing 1-30 booking, so we will be on our first B2B and first Diamond cruise.  We had to change two previously booked cruises, and feel like we paid a bundle in change fees.   Our last cruise was to these same ports two weeks before covid shut everything down.  Can't wait to get back on-board.

    Add me to the Nassau list! I was looking forward to the flight simulator but believe they are no longer in business. Although, in a weird ironic twist, one reason for a last minute booking on Adventure was because it is sailing out of Nassau.

    sk8erguy1978 reacted to JLMoran in Is it typical to not getting seating assignments on Air2Sea?   
    This is something specific to Air2Sea (and sister Celebrity's "Flights by Celebrity" service), and I think will vary by airline. If you did not immediately pay for the airfare and the payment doesn't have to be made until final payment date of your cruise, some (most?) airlines will not count the flight as "ticketed" until the payment is made and received. Until you're officially ticketed, you cannot reserve seats or do any other pre-flight things like pre-pay for luggage (where needed).
    It does vary -- I had booked a flight on Iceland Air for my aborted Iceland & Greenland sailing on Celebrity back in 2020, and even though I hadn't paid at the time of booking I was still counted by the airline as fully ticketed. I could reserve seats, purchase meals if I wanted, pre-pay for extra bags, etc.
    But when I booked a flight on United for my Vision sailing out of Bermuda this year (also canceled), I couldn't reserve seats or anything until I had passed final payment date and they received the payment from Air2Sea.
