When Gary and I were in London, the Chrome browser used the location to give me *.co.uk sites.  Since we have returned home, when I go to Celebritycruises.com, I am redirected to celebritycruises.co.uk.  What do I need to change to have the browser stop redirecting and let me go the the *.com site.  This seems to be the only site affected.  I would like to see the fares in US dollars, not pounds.  I hope I have picked a valid forum, wasn’t sure what to pick.

Gary and I plan to watch your show on the Keep app, as we use it a lot and would like to be “fluent”, use it the best way.

Thanks,

LuVerne

Hey Luverne,

I found your topic. I do need to clean up the categories here … on my list!

As for redirecting you to the .co.uk – good question, I don’t know the answer but let’s do a little detective work. I know that you already cleared cookies and browser data. How about trying a different browser – does Microsoft Edge give you the correct result?

hmmm – interesting – I can manually go to celebritycruises.co.uk and it is a VERY different website, different offers etc. not just a matter of showing $ as Euros. I see why you need to find an answer to this. 

I found a youtube video not exactly on point, but may help:

And, here is a discussion of others with similar problems. There doesn’t seem to be an easy answer.

Chris, I tried the Edge browser this morning and I was able to access the site without any redirecting, so I guess I’ll have to reach out to Google support.  I have also sent an email to the feedback for Celebritycruises, co.uk and am awaiting to see if they come up with anything.  Thanks

Cool
