  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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
  8. I want to confirm that an AQ room lets you into the Persian Garden everyday. Also can anyone tell me about the relaxation room? Thinking of going from CC to AQ for a TA. The upgrade would be less than the price of the Persian Gardem for a week which my husband loves. And then we would dine in Blu.
  9. We definitely purchased cruise insurance. We never travel without. I know I’ll lose some on the airfare but that will be fine. Our trip isn’t for awhile so we have time to figure out
  10. We have just made final payment on our long awaited TA in April. This week my mom was moved into a nursing home and hospice care. We are afraid that we may not won’t be able to take our cruise because of this. I’m not able to reach my travel agent for a day and wondered if anyone knew how this would work. We would be happy to bank the money with Celebrity for s future cruise also. Thoughts!
  11. We love TA’s. The price is right and we totally enjoy relaxing and doing whatever we want. Nothing, spa, lectures, hot tub, people watching ... the possibilities are endless. My favorite type of cruise.
  12. We will be visiting friends in Sarasota and our ship leaves from the Port of Everglades in April. We have decided to get up early and head to Fort Lauderdale and have two choices -- we could take the Cruise Connection bus or rent a car -- the prices are comparable. If we rented a car we would drop off at the FLL airport and grab an UBER to the Port. Has anyone used Cruise Connection, in the past and are they reliable? How difficult is it to drop off a car at the FLL airport. We would appreciate your input. Thanks so much.
  13. Looks like I’m in trouble. My husband doesn’t use a cell phone ... guess he’ll be locked out of the room.
  14. You can bring a case on if you like. Just carry it aboard or it’s easier to put a luggage tag on it. We always bring soda and water and put in old duffle bags and add a luggage tag. Have an awesome cruise.
  15. If you got it from a timeshare presentation it most likely is not on a mainstream cruise line. I did research on this a few years ago. Please research the company that provided the certificate and look for comments on the voucher.
  16. I’m on the Sky Bridge right this second and you can’t see Tampa from here. On a normal day you see the skyline and nothing put low fog today.
  17. Geat attitude. Have fun and a frozen fruity drink for me. I’m in Sarasota headed to Tampa for a flight and I’m happy you have an absolutely beautiful day to be stuck in Tampa.
  18. I’m sorry this is happening and I know disappointing but please enjoy your time with family and friends onboard a beautiful ship. Have a leisurely lunch, grab a drink, look out at the beautiful blue sky. I know I’d be upset and so practicing what I’d be telling myself!
  19. I love seeing all the ideas and what great tips have been posted.
  20. Thank you for the great ideas. I always check on other ships in port.
  21. You made me laugh. Right now I’m sending emails to taxi tours in Liverpool for May of this year.
  22. Awesome. I’m going to check on sunrise and sunset times right now.
  23. Everyone has different opinions reasons for flying in early or not or having trip insurance or not. It’s a personal decision. Over the years we’ve had to cancel two cruises due to medical reasons when we were in our 50’s — will have now because we’re in our 60’s. I will always fly in the day before and have insurance — because I like my vacation start off not worried ... I sleep better at night knowing my chances of missing the cruise are low and if something happens before or during the cruise I’m covered. Just me ...
