  1. Very interesting and fun. The videos and text explanation describing the history and the meaning of the name of each cocktail takes you away from the reality of the day for a few minutes.
  2. Update: my wife has a card attached to my account, so I was able to add the AmEx offer to both cards. I made a payment on each card through my travel agent (Foray Travel) for an upcoming cruise. These were just additional payments on a cruise I already had booked, not a new booking. I received the credit back from Celebrity on both cards within 2 days!
  3. The Port of Galveston reported this week that Cruise Terminal 3 is still on track to begin construction in April 2021 to be ready to open in October 2022. Allure of the Seas is still mentioned as the first ship to be based at the new terminal!
  4. Today Celebrity provided this additional information... "As we shared, your sailing will need to be cancelled, however, we are reaching back out today to provide additional details regarding the reason for cancellation. To clarify, the Celebrity Millennium is scheduled for dry dock in 2022, however the Celebrity Reflection sailings of 4/16/22 and 4/23/22 will needed to be cancelled in order to facilitate a smooth transition from the Caribbean season to our Summer sailings in Europe."
  5. Just got an email about our April 2022 Reflection cruise: ”...routine maintenance dry docks have been scheduled in early 2022 for Celebrity Millennium and Celebrity Reflection. Unfortunately, the time needed to complete all maintenance will require cancellation of your sailing.” “From now through December 28, you have the option to rebook on any other Celebrity Cruise in 2022 at prevailing rates. If you choose to rebook, you will also receive an onboard credit of $200 per inside, ocean view, standard veranda, Infinite VerandaSM, AquaClass® or Concierge Class stateroom; or $400 for
  6. Me too. Their customer service is the best I've ever seen. I pay an annual fee, but I get that and more back in benefits every year. I have the Celebrity offer on my account and am just about ready to put it to use.
  7. That would make Galveston a foreign port, opening up some interesting itinerary options.
  8. Once Covid struck and they canceled all the Allure Galveston sailings I assumed all bets were off. She’s slated for the Mediterranean through October 2022 right now.
  9. I have not heard anything. The new terminal will open in late 2022 at best. With deployments only going out to Oct 2022, we may not hear anything for a while.
  10. If 2021 is a wash and cruises are pushed to 2022, I don't think there will be much of a cruise industry left. So the points will be worthless.
  11. The Port of Galveston has been preparing its cruise terminals for COVID-safe cruising with touchless bathroom fixtures, plexiglass dividers, sanitation contracts, etc. It's primarily up to the CDC and how Royal Caribbean wants to manage its restart in terms of which ships/ports will be released to sail first.
  12. Hey @twangster! The Lyft customer will pay a $2.00 surcharge for a drop-off and another $2.00 surcharge for pick-up at the Port. Keep in mind that if you prefer Uber you can still use Uber from the airport to your Galveston hotel. And Uber can drop you off a block from the Port and you can walk from there if you prefer Uber. I've seen a lot of cruisers do that at Starbucks and on the Strand.
  13. I watched the Port of Galveston Trustees meeting today and heard the following items of interest: The Port Director stated "Royal Caribbean insists they will begin construction on Cruise Terminal 3 on April 1st (2021)." Other Cruise Terminal 3 updates: The design of roads and infrastructure for the East End Cruise Corridor is ongoing. This includes roads to Terminal 3 and roads to a potential future Terminal 4. Design of utilities to support Royal Caribbean's Cruise Terminal 3 is 90% complete. Traffic study is 90% complete. The study will recommend
