  1. We've been on many cruises (RCI, Celebrity, Carnival, and Princess). We love cruises. We are a young family and are looking to do a Caribbean cruise on the Luminosa and I can't find too much information on this cruise line or this ship. We saw a few videos, one in particular on youtube that raised some red flags --- Have to pay for Pizza?!?!?! --- Two set dining room times?!?! [no anytime dining] --- Buffet has limited times and is the only place to get "free food" None of these are deal breakers, but curious to hear about this cruise line, pros and cons. Looking for honest opinions on this specific ship. I searched the forum about caribbean cruises on this ship and nothing came up..... Tell me everything about Costa. Thank you.
  2. Hiccups...... I've used this site so many times for our Vacations. The site is easy to find. Go try searching Google.com , I would think it would come up pretty easily. Between my parents and I, we have booked over two dozen cruises with this agency. Sometimes YOU have to read between the lines to find THAT great deal!
  3. Remember regardless of the answer...OBC can always be used toward gratuities, giving you an even bigger cushion if for whatever reason you don't spend as much as you think.....
  4. How the heck are you on an elliptical for 80 minutes?!?!?! At what level? That's insane!
  5. Thanks for sharing, this will be our first celebrity. Young couple with a 4 year old daughter, so it'd be interesting to see our perspective on the cruise.
  6. Dear All: Now with an indoor and outdoor theater, is there any chance to get fresh popped popcorn on the Equinox?
  7. Dear All: I see that the movie screen has been installed!!! Woo!!! Hoping for some family movies at night on our cruise. However, someone mentioned on FB, be tough to sit or lie down on the grass for a 2-hour movie and I have to agree. Could one somehow bring up pool chairs up there? Or is that not possible. Never been on Celebrity nor have an idea how the ship is fully laid out. Thoughts?
  8. We like to prepay gratuities in advance as it's one less thing to worry about.....many times we don't spend too much money on a cruise ship. A couple photos and that's about it.....it's my understanding that if we dont use the OBC that our TA gave us, it does away..... I thought....ok fine.....remove the tips.....OBC can be used to pay tips (at least on other lines you can)....and then pay the gratuities again minus the OBC we didn't use. Make sense? Is that kosher?
  9. Could I remove all of the gratuities, use my OBC to pay them and then repay with credit card?
  10. As part of our booking, we got $50 on board credit (OBC). We went ahead and prepaid our gratuities as well with our credit card. In the rare event we only spend $25 on board. Can we remove $25 from gratuities and then use our remaining $25 OBC to replenish what we took off of gratuities? More than likely, we'll spend the $50, but we're not drinkers and we're not gamblers...we tend to buy a couple photos and that's about it..... Anyone with experience on this, let me know. Thanks in advance.
  11. Dear All: Is there anywhere in "cruise planner" where I can check how much On-Board-Credit (OBC) I have? Thanks.
  12. Clever. I like it. Touché +314 points. Well done. Holzhauer worthy! #truth
  13. Dear All: On the Equinox, I assume there is a locker room by the weight room. Are there showers? Sauna? Thanks
  14. Oh....My family and I are going on a cruise. Dad is joining my wife and I with our daughter. Daughter booked in my Dad's cabin, but in reality, she's staying in our room. To me, that's just smart.
