Explorer banned from Venice but looks like Marghera will be ready by time CAMEL arrives. 2021 cruises out of luck.

I just saw this on the news not 5 minutes ago and thought to myself "I will ask Marc what will happen to our cruise. He will know " thumbsup

We were supposed to be embarking in Venice October 16. Wonder where they will send us now? I suspect they might be busing us to Trieste or Ravenna. I really don't care - just want to get on the ship!!

Yay George and Rachel! We haven’t booked flights yet. We are booked on the pre-cruise Holy Land trip which I’m very excited about!

We got DFW to Tel Aviv non stop with miles on American. Could not believe there was a nonstop flight I was thrilled. A lot of miles but worth it.

We could have done that flight, but it was more than twice as many miles, so my frugal nature won out.

We have a ton of miles and decided to SPLURGE. So many miles were put back in our account with 16 cruises cancelled that all had air we are pretty flush with miles right now.

Has anyone checked out the prices for airfare back from Venice? With either miles or money, they are heartstopping.

For $2700 + deviation fee Regent will not only fly you to and from but also provide transfers. dance

That is a great deal. We never do regent air, but that is a great deal. I will keep it in mind. But I have a lot of airline credits from all our cancelled trips that I need to use somewhere, and some will expire.

Biz, that is the amount of the credit that Regent gives if you don't take their flights and transfers.

Yay Marcie! We have never been either. We have had 2 prior trips cancel so third times the charm!

Was able to nab 2 seats with miles (57.5K each) on BA/AA! Will have to overnight at LHR, but was able to get a room at the terminal 4 hilton for $103 so not bad.
