  1. Whatever time you board, just make sure to arrive in San Juan a few days early. It is a great place to visit. This will be our second cruise on the summit out of San Juan. last April we flew in on friday and stayed in old San Juan. One night wasn't enough time. This April we are staying in Old San Juan for 3 days precruise. But to answer your question, last time we got to the port at 10:30 and we were on board by 11. Our boarding time was listed as 2pm. San Juan is easy to get around and the taxis are not metered in the tourist areas. You can find cab prices online to get the idea of costs.
  2. Thanks for the input. What I really wasn’t sure of is the mocktails. That sealed the deal. If they can sit at the pool and drink a Virgin daqari.
  3. What drink package should I get for my kids? They are 16,15,12,5. I want to get them at least the soda package. Is the premium non alcoholic package worth it for the kids? Is there a bunch of places to get smoothies on board? Can they get virgin daiquiris at the bar? Thanks for your help.
  4. There in lies the problem. The flight going is fine. We can sit somewhere else. It is the return flight. There is only 2 seat together. All the rest singles. And I purchased the flights from celebrity. I am right for being upset with them. They shouldn’t sell seats that they cannot secure. I am left thinking that what if someone else books directly with the airline? Do I get bumped off the plane?
  5. When I get on the American website it tells me I need to go through the travel booking agent.
  6. Last year I booked a cruise during a a $20 deposit 20% off airfare sale. Well since I booked before flights were available, I was assured that when they did I would get the promotion. At exactly the 330 day mark I called to booked flights. Surprise, surprise. I was told that my cruise did not qualify for the promotion. I decided to keep the cruise and I booked my flights with celebrity. Since it was the 330 day mark. The bookings were pretty much wide open to pick any seats I wanted. So I did. I just checked yesterday and my seats were reassigned and my family is sitting all over the plane. I called celebrity and they told me it was the airline not celebrity that changed my seats. I informed them that I booked my travel with celebrity not the airline and they need to fix it. The supervisor told me he would fix it and call me back. I am still waiting for his call. It seems he blew me off. I may have to cancel the cruise over this because my children are young and have never flown before. I can’t have them sitting next to strangers on a plane. Also celebrity never informed of this change. They were going to wait until after final payment to inform me if at all. Flights by celebrity is the worst and I will never book through them again.
  7. Tanks for the review. How many people were on the tour? Was it crowded?
  8. I was on the same sailing. I also didn’t think it felt crowded. Except at the bar at rendezvous lounge or cellar masters before dinner or cafe al bacio in the morning. But I don’t think it was as bad as some people are complaining about. I never waited more than a couple of minutes for a drink.
  9. My cousin has a support animal because of his PTSD from Iraq. The dog went through the required training and is a certified service animal. Now with that being said. The dogs is not well behaved and a butthead. More training needs to be done with these animals. No one questions a seeing eye dog. Why? because they are always well behaved. They go through months of rigorous training to get their certification not just a few classes.
  10. Also mini bar drinks are not included in the drink package
  11. When we go to Disney we get the magicband. I love them!! It’s always there when you need it and don’t have to fumble in your pockets for a card or have something hanging around neck. The magic bands even have a removable puck so if you don’t want it around your wrist you can get something to hand around your neck or put on your belt loop.
  12. Fact is that there are many cabin classes on the edge. I personally think the IV cabins aren’t worth the price difference over a ocean view cabin. I wouldn’t pay that much more for a window that opens. However I don’t think that would keep me off the ship. I would love to book it. Especially now that they are giving the go best package as promotion. I would just book a sunset veranda or a ocean view.
  13. Am I missing something? The infinity verandas don’t look like they have a veranda at all. Just a window that opens. Is that all they are? If so I am selling my house house and I have to inform my realtor about the many verandas he left out of the appraisal.
  14. Thats a shame. It would be great to see such a undertaking. Maybe Celebrity will film one in time lapse so we can see it.
  15. With the dry dock schedule starting. I was wondering if there is a way to watch the ships get "revolutionized"? Thanks.
