Interesting. Certainly not a guarantee that the cruise won't ultimately be canceled, given they'll need time to re-staff the ship and get all the guidelines from the Healthy Sail Panel codified. But a step that inspires a certain level of hope.

I wasn't connecting to restart, but the migration of the 2.0 to the Celebrity app.  As this is the first cruise window that's opened for us (that the app actually connects), it was cool to see the link to the muster video.   The video was in Chinese which was entertaining.

Wow.  What a wait.  Michelle, MEI, just booked us on a Celebrity Alaska Cruise on the Solstice, July 2022 (S1 Sky Suite).  As posted before, this will be our first Celebrity Cruise.  I will have a whole bunch of rookie questions.  BTW, started my spreadsheet this morning.   

Kudos to Michelle.  Cue music for my happy dance.

As that's >7 days, its now highly unlikely.   SO hope the B2Bs from Venice go, but thinking that's out the window too.

Was told by my TA its wasn't going as an 11 day cruise.  So unless Celeb shortens it - not legally possible for it to go at this time.  As the RCL group has cancelled through 28 Feb 21 - in my mind, an 8 March 7 day to the southern Caribbean isn't happening as a number of the ports have not announced re-opening.  Its toast!

Next ones are a B2B on Infinity mid June '21 from Venice.   Might be possible if the big "V" gets distributed fast enough.

Tring to convince the wife to take the transpacific back from Tokyo to the US in Apr 23 but I am getting a lot of fight on this.  I think it will be pushed to Apr 2024...  Although NCL has a much better itinerary on the Tokyo --> US cruise.

Ouch on pushback- TransPac Apr '23 - would expect  to go.  If not, we'll have an extinct cruise industry anyway.

Stoked!  Which staterooms are you thinking about?  

I should probably tell people about this, huh? ?

We're looking at either the Deluxe Porthole View with Verandah or Edge Stateroom with Infinite Verandah.  I figure we won't be in the cabin much so the extra $200 for the second one may be better spent elsewhere... ?

Deluxe Porthole View with Verandah

My brain hurts after reading this. Isn't a porthole view a basic ocean view cabin with no verandah? Doesn't a verandah cabin always have no window / porthole and just the sliding glass door to the verandah? If it has a porthole, isn't on a deck too low to have a verandah?

That's... a verandah? Looks fully enclosed apart from the (admittedly large and half-open) porthole. Does it satisfy the nautical definition if not the traditional land one?

Look, @Lovetocruise2002 is a suite snob. I'm a verandah snob. ?

Not much smaller than our opening on Adventure of the Seas LOL

I don't know that I want to spend $200 more on the regular balcony for a group cruise - I don't know how much time we're spending in the cabin.

Edge & Apex are commanding  higher prices than the S and M class ships.  Not sure where that infinite veranda is located, but if it might have an additional window on the wall facing toward the bow or stern if its on a pushed out area.  (The Sky Suites between the Magic carpet rail on outer most bow and stern side have an additional bow or stern facing window.)

Final payments for our B2B June Med cruises are coming up this month and have questions that can't be answered yet...

- Is there a vaccine requirement?  Does Celebrity require pre-cruise testing?   Are there restrictions on B2B cruising in Europe (is testing required after 1st cruise)?  We know the CDC requires testing prior to air travel return to  the states - will there be a line sponsored / referred test availability?  Will American require quarantine before entering Italy for embarkation?  Haven't seen Celebrity guidance on shore excursion restrictions yet - expecting to require all excursions through line - but nothing published.  

Will  be asking our TA to push final payments back as far as possible... But I'm not optimistic about getting answers to our questions.
