  1. Actually, both are favourites of my 28 and 32 year old daughters.
  2. It was great last year when we were actually docked in Amsterdam. Do you think IJmuiden (? spelling) will put some on? I don’t think we’ll see Amsterdam’s, 40 minutes away, from the ship.
  3. Hi. That’s great to read. Having invested in a few posh frocks for last year, I’m glad to give them another outing! Looking forward to the cruise!
  4. Thank you Kenhem! I read the dress code (before booking!) but wondered if anyone who has been on this cruise before could comment on the other, non-Black Tie nights? We've done this cruise for the last three years on Cunard and people were very dressy every night, more than on a usual Cunard non-formal night.
  5. We've done 2 Celebrity cruises and while there were some people very well dressed, the majority didn't wear anything different on Evening Chic nights. The man at the table next to us had 2 polo shirts it seemed- 1 navy, 1 black - and that's all he ever wore for all 11 nights.
  6. Hi, We're booked for this year's 5 night from the 29th of December. I assume Hogmanany (New Year's Eve) will be Black Tie but will there be any others? I have plenty of dress options and would hate missing the opportunity for another long dress. Thanks!
  7. Agree with you. While Celebrity's food was fine, it was a bit too meat and potatoes, especially blasted mashed potatoes! Cunard usually offers pheasant, guinea fowl, and venison too but not in Celebrity's MDR. However, if Cunard had the Martini bar, I would be completely happy on all fronts.
  8. Chatting to fellow passengers recently and they told me they'd transferred a direct booking with Cunard to a travel agent. The conversation moved on so I didn't get an opportunity to ask why they would bother and any possible advantages to doing so. Anyone done this? (UK booking)
  9. As I stated in my post, both Cunard and Oceania have them. Their clients seemed perfectly able to read and follow simple instruction. Both lines also have set opening and closing times (the doors are locked outwith theses hours) so they don’t provide any disturbance to those opposite or next to them.
  10. I don't understand why Celebrity can't provide laundry rooms like other lines. Both Cunard and Oceania have several - roughly one per cabin deck- with washing machines, dryers, an ironing board and a good quality iron. I think it's just a money making scam to have to send out clothes for pressing.
  11. How many Evening Chic nights on a 10 day cruise?
  12. And now they’re both back! Still Pending...must have been a glitch. Thanks to all for your advice.
  13. My husband is the c card holder and he’s not back from work yet...
  14. We’re 29 days pre cruise and had put 2 bids in and they showed as ‘Pending’. Today the entire Move up section has vanished from the Account section. Has this happened to anyone else and what was the outcome? No email yet!
