  1. We sailed in Concierge on Solstice in February. We chose it to get a cabin on the hump with a larger balcony. We also like the extra points as we are not quite at Elite. The embarkation day lunch and the invite to the helipad while in Doubtful sound were also appreciated.
  2. Looking forward to reading this. We cruised Auckland to Melbourne in February on Solstice. We were very lucky to get back to the U.K. less than 2 weeks before we were locked down.
  3. I thought all M class balcony staterooms had the bed by the bathroom, but I could be wrong.
  4. Have you thought about an apartment? We prefer to stay in one for the extra space. We stayed for a week in the Arise Ivy and Eve apartments which we enjoyed. Convenient for South Bank, CBD and train station.
  5. I would like to try Holland America but I’m afraid the buffet closing at 8pm and bars deserted after 11pm would be a deal breaker for me. Although we are aged early 60’s we like to eat after 8pm then either relax with a drink or go to some venue to dance.
  6. I wasn’t aware this was a USA website
  7. Thanks. We just arrived from a wet week in Brisbane. At least it’s better than the snow and storm back in Scotland.
  8. We arrived in Auckland today for a weeks stay prior to our cruise on celebrity solstice. This is the view from our apartment.
  9. We love the sweet sixteen cabins for the larger balcony. Our favourites are the end ones - 6030 and 6035
  10. Thanks for that. I saw a good deal on a Fjords cruise and was pricing flights yesterday from Edinburgh to Southampton. Maybe we will take the train!
  11. No it is not on the app yet. If you download the app it tells you which ships are supported by it
  12. That’s good to hear. We have the cabin next door - 9239 on our upcoming Solstice cruise.
  13. Looking forward to this trip report. We will be visiting all these ports apart from Wellington on our Auckland to Melbourne cruise next February.
  14. Looking forward to another great cruise report. I also follow you on Instagram. That was a great price for a suite with all perks. Wish we got offers like that in the U.K.
  15. Have you paid in full for the cruise? We are in the U.K. and have completed online check in for our February cruise but can’t print the express pass until we pay the balance by 57 days before.
