  1. This is one of the few things I dislike about Celebrity as compared to other cruise lines. I would much rather do my own laundry than pack more or pay a lot for them to do it. I take a portable clothesline, small travel packets of soap, and do the best I can, but I do find it annoying that they donโ€™t give you the option. My revenge is stringing up clean clothes on the balcony!
  2. We are booked for a cruise on the Flora next month and I have been hoping that someone on this board has now completed a trip and is willing to write a review. I am really excited and have the typical Cruise Critic questions- laundry? food? how to dress in the evenings (I know Galapagos cruises are very casual in general) and any other useful information. Thanks in advance!
  3. Thank you! We googled as well and didn't find it but I also didn't think to look on a RCCL site for a Celebrity tour...
  4. We did a one way from Vancouver to Whittier last August on the Coral Princess and loved it. Coral has a full promenade deck- deck 7-which was fantastic in Alaska for the wildlife viewing- as you are closer to the water level you can see so much more than you can from a higher deck. Also, as my husband is a runner, having a 1/4 mile track sure beats the 1/13 mile one we have had on other ships. Other things we appreciated were having open viewing areas both forward and aft (we were on deck 10 but there may be some on other decks) and the opportunity to hear Libby Riddle's (the first woman to win the Iditarod) presentation. Finally, I enjoyed meeting the absolutely adorable sled dog puppies in the atrium:). We did post cruise touring on our own and loved staying in Kantishna at the "end of the road" in Denali. A one way flight in and the camper bus out two days later gave us a good amount of time to see this incredible place.
  5. In looking at the excursions for St Peter Port, Celebrity lists a "Juniper and Jewels" small group tour. There is no further information on the web site and when we called Celebrity to ask about it, the person we spoke with was not able to find any information either. Is anyone familiar with this one?
  6. We are on the Silhouette sailing May 7 out of Southampton. In looking at the excursions for St Peter Port, Celebrity lists a "Juniper and Jewels" small group tour. There is no further information on the web site and when we called Celebrity to ask about it, the person we spoke with was not able to find any information either. Is anyone familiar with this one? here is the link- https://www.celebritycruises.com/itinerary-details/12-night-iceland-and-ireland-cruise-from-southampton-england?packageID=SI12Q031&sDT=2019-05-07&cCD=CO&aCB=false
  7. Thanks so much for posting this! We have the Premium package via a Go Best deal on our upcoming Caribbean cruise in Dec but only Classic level as a perk on our Ireland and Iceland in May. Seems like very few options with Classic...so need to think on that.
  8. Thanks to you both- we've done about a dozen cruises and it's been my experience that "formal nights" are often on "at sea" days, so was making that assumption here. But your point makes sense, the last night is when you have to put your luggage out for pickup, so can see why that would be a bad evening to have a formal night. Will watch for reviews from the 3 and 17 Nov sailings (the alternate weeks have a different itinerary although I would expect the details to be similar) and hope that one of these is not the day I booked Qsine! Love the help from this community!
  9. Wendy- FWIW I just booked our reservation in Qsine (and it was definitely not noted as Petit Chef) for 5 Dec so expect it will be there during your week. Any other info /reviews you have on the cruise when you get back would be welcomed- our last Celebrity cruise was 4 years ago and we've done five cruises on other lines since then so my recollections about Celebrity details are somewhat muddled. My assumption for this itinerary given djkretired's input is that the Evening Chic nights will be the St Kitt's Day and the At Sea day, so confirmation/corrections to that would definitely be appreciated.
  10. Thanks all! This is exactly what I was looking for. My cruise planner has Qsine as an option on Summit, so assume that the changeover to Le Petit Chef will happen during Summit's drydock in early 2019. We are on Silhouette in May which has Le Petit Chef, but from reading the reviews here, I'm thinking it's not good value for money.
  11. I can barely read this new version of CC postings from my ipad. It shows all the font markings , so each post starts with
  12. All- sorry if this is out there but really struggling to find things with the new Cruise Critic look and searching takes me all over the place with no useful result ๐Ÿ˜ž Heading out on Summit 1 December and trying to find out more about this. I understand "evening chic" has replaced formal in terms of dress code, but is the MDR menu generally an upgrade from the usual on those nights ? Does anyone know which nights this will be ? Trying to determine what night to best book Qsine on this trip. Thanks!
