  1. Check out Banks Mansion. We've stayed there 4 times and it has always been great.
  2. I'd highly recommend Dingle (and the whole peninsula) while on the west coast. It's a gorgeous town and the scenery on the peninsula is unrivaled anywhere in Ireland. Just drive very carefully.
  3. I apologize in advance if you already know this, but GT is actually a measure of volume, not actual weight. Its based on how much water is displaced by the ship. 1 GT is equal to 100 cubic feet of space on the ship, so things like climbing walls will not contribute.
  4. And this has only gotten worse with the new ships (Edge and Apex) as well as the on-going refits. They have created the "Retreat" which pretty much takes over all upper deck space forward of the pool. They are also converting a number of previously "regular" veranda cabins into Aqua class.
  5. Thanks for the response, but what is "CP?"
  6. We’re in concierge traveling with two other couples in regular verandas. When I make a dining room reservation can I make it for 6 or only for ourselves? Thanks.
  7. Thanks Jim_Lain and Fleckle. Sounds simple enough, though I think I like the old HAL process better...it was seamless. Dave
  8. We’re booked on our first Celebrity B2B on Summit out of San Juan in November. I’m curious how check in works. We have 2 separate reservations in the same cabin. Do we get a sea pass card good for both cruises at first check in or do we have to check in again for the second one? Any info or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks. Dave M.
  9. Thanks for the review, we're taking the Edge TA in April and were starting to get a little concerned. Was this a 7 day cruise? We stopped doing them because we have noticed a huge difference in the people on a 7-day versus a 10 day or longer trip. IMHO, it seems like the majority of the 7 day cruisers have unrealistic expectations and are generally not experienced travelers. Obviously this leads to a lot of complaints. And I'd be willing to bet that the service/event they complain about is still far superior to what they experience in day-to-day life. It seems most of them don't know how an elevator works, let alone what good service looks like!
  10. You are not required to buy a drink package, you can pay by the drink.
  11. Have they changed the unwritten policy of rolling up the sidewalks at 9 PM? This is why we quit sailing them a few years ago in favor of celebrity.
  12. We're booked on the Edge TA at the end of April and there are absolutely no discounts offered there. I'll certainly be keeping my eyes open though!!
  13. While you will get They offer daily drink specials. Bottled water is not complimentary, and the availability of brand (Evian, Perrier, San Pellegrino, etc.) depends on bar and price. While the comment about having 3 drinks added to your card is correct, the choice of drinks is not unlimited. The bars in the evening will have a Captains Club "menu" posted which will tell you what wines and cocktails can be ordered with your 3 credits.
