The cruise was cancelled/postponed (?) by StarVista/Celebrity! Yay! This is the final saga in the "cancellation" war! Posted this on our FB Flower Power chat group:
It is currently 2:20 am. I was on hold from 12 am to 1:30 am ET with Delta. Got the runaround from an Oriental sounding woman who was not going to honor what a previous customer service rep promised me about a week ago. (wasn’t ready to cancel yet) So, I asked to speak to her supervisor. He was real nice and apologized for putting me on hold several times for a few minutes, but eventually I got an even better deal than the first guy promised! I got 10,000 points returned to me (instead of just a measly $100 for them), plus the rest of the plane fare ($376.60) will be credited to my Delta Sky Miles AMEX card! I made sure he knew ahead of time that I was a loyal Delta customer for all the many (but one) plane trips I’ve taken in my life, and a longtime Delta Sky Miles member. So, if you find yourself in the same situation, ask to speak to a supervisor! Persistence pays - I was on the phone with them from 1:30 - 2:15 am!! Luckily I’m a night owl and always stay up until at least 3 am and sleep until about 11 am! So, everything is sorted now except whether the 2020 cruise will be re-scheduled or just totally cancelled and then I’ll go on the 2021 FP cruise. ❤️ P.S. Also already cancelled hotel (no charge) and the (worthless) insurance. Next year getting it from Travel Guard/AIG.
So happy you got this! I've been praying for you.
Going on a cruise in November. In the footsteps of Apostle Paul. Im really looking forward especially to see Israel and Greece! Hope we're all better by then. Going to miss the election at home. My family wants to be away then.
Hope you are able to go. I got my 10,000 miles back in my Delta Sky Miles account! The $ hasn't credited Amex yet, though. StarVista is going to announce a reschedule date for the 2020 cruise. I hope they don't say May-July - that is too soon! I will probably opt for the 2021 cruise next March.
Also, who knows - Beatleweek in August may cancel and I'd have to deal with getting money back for that! Have different (better) insurance for that trip. Would get 100% ($2200) back, then I'd have to get my Delta Sky Miles returned.
My mom and I voted early (last Thursday) before they postponed the Mar. 24th primary. It will be in April sometime.
