  1. Agreed, you need to get a new TA. You may have to pay this fee this one time, but you will never have to deal with this run-around again.
  2. Yes, so from what I remember, Celebrity rep say that they sell it three ways as an all inclusive: The 10 and 11 Day packages and then a 16 day package that includes Machu Picchu after the cruise. He said that it really keeps it easy because you fly into Quito and from the moment you land you are in the hands of Celebrity, from your Hotel stay, to the charter flights to Baltra and back, the cruise, then back to Quito or if doing Machu Picchu, off to Peru. It seemed like it would be the easiest way to do the cruise, especially when in a country where I don't speak the language. My agent al
  3. I looked at the chart that she sent us and really the only time where you might not want to go is Dec, it says that the Boobies are mostly fishing and the Albatrosses are not there, but it is my understanding that even in Dec you will see the other wildlife - Flightless Cormorants., Iguanas, Penguins, Tortoises, and sea lions. This is on my bucket list, so that is why I attended her Zoom presentation, I am maybe hoping to go before 2025. It was pretty cool because she had the rep from Celebrity on the call and he had actually gone with Celebrity and shared some of his own experiences. C
  4. PRH did you go all the way to Punta Del Gado? And what is that little house?
  5. I posted this in the South America Ports of call but haven't gotten any responses, so I thought I turn to the Celebrity cruisers for advice. My wife and I did a South America cruise this Feb on the Celebrity Eclipse and we liked it so much we are going back in 2022 and visiting many of the same ports. In Feb we did Puerto Madryn on our own, We got a Taxi to Trewlew to see the Paleontology Museum and then had a fabulous lunch in town, walked along the beach front. When we return in 2022, wife thinks she wants to go see the living animals on Penin

When we return in 2022, wife thinks she wants to go see the living animals on Peninsula Valdes, but I am curious about the tour and the area and wondering if it is worth a full day's time to go there. Did you go? Did all day seem too l
  7. The nices most luxurios option is definitely the Flora. Holds a 100 passengers all suite and custom build for the destination. Easy debarkation via custom yacht tenders vs just a stand zodiac. It just won an award for best new expedition ship. Celebrity has pretty good pricing going right now, but it is still expensive. For the three of you it will probably be at least $30K and not everyone has that kind of budget. The Celebrity Expedition is a little less expensive. The nice thing about doing it with Celebrity is that they make it a seamless package with two nights in Quito, Charter
  8. This PDF shows the upgrades, are standard spirits just house brands, or are they name brands? https://www.azamara.com/sites/default/files/pdfs/beverage_onboard_flyer_jan_2020_web.pdf
  9. Celebrity had a special where you could not select the exact gratuities. It ran I think last weekend. Bev, Wifi and Gratuities was the only option. Keep an on the specials they might offer more choices later.
  10. We cruise Celebrity with our kids from the ages of about 7 and 9 to the last family cruise when they were 15 and 17. They loved Celebrity and were never bored. They were also instructed to be respectful of otheres and be on their best behavior at all times or that would be the end of cruising for them. We cruised for our preferences and not the kids and loved that Celebrity fit our taste so well and the kids enjoyed the quality time with us, entertainment on the ship, and the fun we would have ashore. The Mouse we never our thing other than a couple of trips to Disney World,
  11. Agreed, have the TA Escalate through their sales channel or supervisor or something.
  12. I have another question. Having never been to Amsterdam, I am trying to figure out if it would be possible to take a water taxi or chartered boat from a city center hotel to the cruise port. I was thinking that this would just be a really unique way to see the canals of the city before we make our way to the ship. I looked on google map and it is just hard to see where the ship embarks in realationship to the building and the eantrance and the canals. I got a quote from one boat company who can pick us up at the Hilton, which is closer to the museum district, so we are leaning that way
  13. It must be so difficult to book on the Celebrity site with their poor IT. When I call my travel agent she will quote me the price with and with-out perks. She has to select the promo before the prices come up. Then she sends me with and with-out perks, so much easier than trying to deal with the Celebrity web site. She sometimes offers me group rates too.
  14. Just Checked out the Dam Boat Guys web site. They must be struggling during this pandemic, but sure do have a good sense of humor about the whole thing.
