  1. If you miss Victoria, I'm assuming next stop is in the USA. As the cruise ends in San Diego, you won't be able to board at a USA port as that would be a violation of the PSVA.
  2. No pens, pads or pencils on single IV cabins. Maybe that's because there are no drawers to put them in!!
  3. Just back from the Edge. Read many reports how storage was lacking in the Single infinite veranda cabins, but figured it couldn't be that bad. I was wrong -- it is worse! The Bathroom - A normal cruise bathroom, three small corner shelves above the vanity, 1.5 shelves under the vanity, a drawer under the sink, but it is filled with extra tissue, TP and the hair dryer, two small hooks on the bathroom door and 2 small hooks in the shower. A hint, no pull-out clothes line. Take about 6' of thin clothes line or string, tie a loop and hook it over the top of the shower control and tie the other end to one of the shower hooks. The Cabin - A 24" wide closet with one full rod and one lower 1/2 width rod. No shelves in the closet other than the floor of the closet. There is a white cabinet that looks like lots of storage, but.....left side has the safe with two shelves under the safe, that are very low. One shelf had our beach towels. There is a hook on the side of the cabinet. The nightstand is a little 3 cube piece of furniture with each cube being about 8"x 8" square, maybe 16" deep (no doors). There is a stool with a removable top (great for dirty clothes). NO drawers in the cabin, only the two small shelves. If you look at the door to the refrig, it looks like a door and a drawer, but when you open it, the fridge takes up the entire area. Maybe the plan was to put a drawer above the fridge, but either the fridge was too big or they decided the heat from the fridge would be a problem. I know the cabin is only for one person, but where do you put your socks, underwear, shorts, bathing suits.......Many live out of their suitcase (other than the items you can hang in the closet). One reason I cruise is the suitcase goes under the bed on day 1 and doesn't come back out til the night before the end of the cruise. The designer of this cabin and Celebrity should be embarrassed.
  4. If your TA looked for 13 cabins on Royal Caribbean's Sensation, she wouldn't find any as Sensation is a Carnival ship !!!
  5. Most large cruise ships have satellite wifi sytems that don't rely on a cellular connection. Smaller ships like ACL use cellular based wi-fi systems. No or weak cell service - no wi-fi. Not sure the cost of a satellite system would make sense for a ship with 100-150 passengers.
  6. Trying to decide where to stay after the cruise, at Amelia Island or Downtown Jax. Don't want to make reservations in Amelia and find out we get off in Jax (vis-a-versa also).
  7. Taking the Historic South and Golden Isles Cruise in a few months from Charleston to Jacksonville. I called a few months ago ans ACL assured me the cruise ends in Jacksonville. Now the website say: Day 8Jacksonville, FL Area (Amelia Island) Where do you get off the ship on the last morning, Amelia Island or Jacksonville? I know they are close (maybe a 45 minute drive)
  8. An iPad you buy onboard will probably have a US charger, not a British charger. Both would be multi voltage, but the pins would be different and you would need an adapter in England.
  9. Although legal according to the PVSA, there may be immigration/customs issues in debarking early. as others have said, ask Celebrity and get their answer in writing.
  10. Only one operator goes from Phillipsburg, where the ship docks. the others leave from Marigot which is 30 - 60 minutes from the ship (depending on traffic, which can be horrible when multiple ships are in port). A 4:00pm ferry to Marigot would not get you back to the ship on time.
  11. Doing St Barts excursion from St. Marteen to St, Barts on 1/16/2020. Excursion time is listed 10am-4pm. The ferry from Phillipsburg leaves at 9:45am and the only return from St. Barts is at 6:45pm which is almost 2 hours after the ship leaves (ship time is 7am-5pm). So, the only ferry TO St Barts leaves 15 minutes after the excursion starts and the only return has you missing the ship!! Does Celebrity have a "private" ferry to St Barts?? If not, has anyone done this and how do they make it work?
  12. Everyone's requirements are different. Go to www.insuremytrip.com
  13. Is smoking is an issue with you (either yes or no), you should check smoking policy of European lines vs. US lines. Lots more smoking allowed on European lines.
