  1. I never had an opinion on decorate or not decorate your door until recently. We have taken many Celebrity cruises and I would see a banner here or there and would smile to myself. We just took a Disney Fantasy Cruise and many many cabins were decorated. Some were elaborate and some simple. We joined the crowd and decorated with something small. I can’t tell you how much I loved being able to find my cabin easier plus it was fun seeing others creativity. I’ll do something small and tasteful in the future.
  2. Just booked 24 days at sea! I can’t believe I added the Ultimate Caribbean to our TA. We have always wanted to stay on the ship for another cruise and now is our chance. So much planning to do. We’re going to add Madrid and Barcelona before the ship sails. I’m still working on insurance claims from our canceled TA and few weeks in Ireland this spring but now I’ve got something to look forward to.
  3. We have had to cancel a much anticipated TA and tour of Ireland which was to begin on Monday. My mom is in her final days and we need to be here for both my mom and dad. We are in Florida and I thought it might be nice to go on a quick cruise in a few weeks (3-5) from now to decompress. We are loyal celebrity cruisers and sail in CC or SS when possible and enjoy great service and specialty restaurants. Celebrity doesn’t seem to have any cruises out of Florida in May and neither does Holland. I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion for us. Thanks so much.
  4. Thank you so much. We’re both elite so thinking we’ll be fine.
  5. We are going on TA and then gone for two more weeks. I know we get one bag for being Elite. Is there a specific number of items or can you fill the bag? I’m sure we’ll have another bag ... does anyone know the cost. Thanks so much.
  6. My husband won’t let me but ... about 8 in the morning I want to move everyone’s things ... hat to one chair, shoe to another on the other side with someone else’s book and on and on. Mass chaos. I can dream.
  7. The difference for my 14 day cruise is $104 so going to stay with unlimited. Happy they have an alternative though.
  8. Can someone tell me the differences in unlimited and surf. Thanks so much.
  9. Years ago we requested a table change from a table for 8. One of the men drank, and drank some more and constantly was abusive of his wife. The next night we were moved to a table for 6 and another couple from first night table were there. Obviously we went the only ones that wanted to try away from first night table.
  10. So happy it worked out. Enjoy your cruise.
  11. Enjoy every minute of our cruise relaxing. Wander of the ship late with no worries. Head to airport with no rushing. Get through security and find yourself a nice restaurant or bar. Enjoy a beverage and talk about your wonderful trip. Tomorrow is another day back in the real world.
  12. How do I sign up to get the exciting deals emails. DH retiring soon so can take advantage of deals.
  13. I’m curious what insurance companies you have used for travel insurance when on a land vacation. We are touring Ireland for 14 days after a cruise. World Nomands was suggested but I’d love to hear from you! Do you recommend anyone or want to steer me away from someone. Thanks for all your help.
  14. I did and we’re booked. Thanks so much.
  15. Just curious who can use it and how you get there?
  16. I tried but was unable to find it. I’ll try again tomorrow from a desktop.
  17. We just were assigned 2162 as our suite guarantee. Can anyone tell me about the cabin. Any thoughts world be welcome.
  18. We haven’t sailed in a suite for years — well before the Michael’s Club and Luminae. I just sprugled for DH retirement for our April TA to a suite guanantee. I’m assuming we will have a Sky Suite. Some posts say we can have at Luminae on boarding day and others say no — wondering which. Is Michaels open on boarding day? Can you stop in during the day for a glass of wine? Are you able to take wine out in the evening? Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks so much.
  19. Thinking of moving up Sky Suite on a TA. I have a few quick questions. Is Michaels Lounge open for Sky Suite? What’s the Retreat like on the Reflection? We enjoy specialty restaurants ... if going to Lumine will we want to go to Specialty restaurants. Thanks so much.
  20. If there is anyway to fly in the night before I would do it. I would never chance flying in the day of even when weather is good. There are too many things that can go wrong. Last winter we met a group of ten people who flew in the day of their cruise and missed the ship because of flight delays. It’s worth a late night flight and hotel room.
  21. We are sailing on a 14 day cruise and wanted to decide when to eat at Blu and when we should visit our favorite specialty restaurants. Does anyone have the Blu menu in order for that long of a cruise that are recent? Thanks so much.
  22. It does. We are happy with what we have so I think it wouldn’t be good for us. Now, if the PH we’re a available...
  23. I wanted to check on the benefits of the Sky Suite — particularly — can you go to specialty restaurants in addition to Lumani? Can you use the Persian Garden for free? Does it include an internet package? Do you get extra CC points? At the moment my TA has 20+ Sky Suites and I’m wondering if I would try for a Move Up if I get an email. All thoughts are welcome.
  24. We just upgraded to an AQ on our Transatlantic and are excited about dining in Blu. My one concern is I love the French onion soup on Celebrity ... can I make a special request for this or even a shrimp cocktail?
  25. We were able to upgrade to AQ and that's great because my husband loves the Persian Garden. We are on a 14 day TA in April. Right now I have Cabin 1565 and have the opportunity to change to 2145. 2145 is mid-ship right near the elevators and a short walk to the Persian Garden. My only concern moving to 2145 is the noise from the pool deck, but if I'm remembering correctly the pool deck isn't used much on an April TA and we would generally be out of the room during the day and it would be quiet at night. For all of my cruise critic friends that study cabins --- what are your thoughts. I have 24 hours to make my decision
