Did everyone get the email from Crystal with their new itineraries at bargain basement cost? $1399 per week for window cabin or $1999 per week for a 412 sq ft penthouse. Here is the link to the Crystal website: https://www.crystalcruises.com/spec...content=simply-the-best-caribbean-061120

We may have to try Crystal at these prices especially as we have no idea when Regent will start sailing again and at what price.

Interesting Marc. There is a San Juan to Miami cruise on the Serenity October 8 - 15 so it's before BOOTS, flying from Miami to Dallas. We've never been on Crystal Ocean cruise before but I bet they're nice.

No doubt that this is an incredible price and might connect nicely with boots. Just hope they are really sailing by October.

Before booking I would suggest that one makes sure a refund can be obtained if cancelled. A future cruise certificate would not be acceptable in my view.

Ralph, good point; especially with Crystal's $500 pp cancellation fee.

I think this is the beginning of how we're going to see cruise lines start sailing again, discounted fares from US ports to the Caribbean. But it's still too early to have any certainty they will be able to sail again by October.

I'm also hoping that once Regent actually resumes cruising they will offer Ngaire a deal to get her clients on a ship like they did with the Explorer crossing that was canceled.

Marcie has really no risk there as she has a Crystal River Cruise in 2021 where she can just move a $500 penalty. Full payment would be looming pretty soon as well. However, we would need to check the overall policies. I believe that Crystal's assurance policy is valid only if they change the itinerary or cancel the cruise. Not sure, not dealt with a Crystal Cancellation personally but that is what I think I heard last. Things change constantly.

I am hoping for the same thing Tom, I have the beautiful SUITE pins still sitting in my office. This was a trip I was SO looking forward to taking, would have been great fun for everyone.
