  1. Hope you're right ....we are on Silhouette to the ABC islands this coming March. Hopefully they aren't dropping Curacao from current itinerary!!
  2. We booked when they added the extra cost for the Classic Bev Pkg. I found the upgrade to Premium listed in the Order History for our Nov cruise. Question: Since wines are about the only thing we generally upgrade, I'm wondering are there any "premium" wines/drinks available at the Elite Happy Hour? Thanks.
  3. I can't find any way to contact Uber to ask a question..... We need something large enough for 4 people, 4 bags, two carry-ons. Is there any way to arrange something like this in advance or just get off the ship and go for a cab? (FLL)
  4. If you have time, can you find out who's taking their place. We're on the 31st sailing. Thanks!
  5. I'm a little confused.....in your first post, you said: "The ship itself is looking absolutely stunning. The staterooms are gorgeous, the bathrooms well designed and the beds are beyond comfortable. " In this post, you say " the cabins were as tired as ever" but I'm hoping you're referring to the Oasis. Sorry, just don't quite understand but hoping we have updated cabins for our Nov cruise on the Summit. Thanks!
  6. Exact thing happened to us. We've always been happy with the Classic Pkg and weren't happy we had to pay $200pp extra for the "free" perk. In early Nov we booked with a group rate (big online TA in TX) and got a great deal. TA tried to get the extra charge removed. We would have had to re-price under the current pricing. Since the "group" booking and perks have changed and the fare is now double, we'll keep our current booking as is. Even tho our cruise isn't until November, Cruise Planner history is showing "Premium" Pkg which is unusual as generally when you book with a TA, it won't show in the "history" until shortly before the cruise.
  7. Like this format! Instead of telling us with great detail what you eat at every meal.....quick response to questions. Hope to see more like this. Thanks.
  8. Enjoying your review already! How is the Crown Plaza? One we're considering for future cruise. Thanks.
  9. Welcome Back! We are on the Silhouette in early March with the exact same itinerary. As always, looking forward to your review. Have a great trip. 🎈
  10. Darn! This is not good news. AA has changed our departure flight to 11:27 next month out of FLL. I had a feeling this would be the case and Celebrity won't budge.....
  11. Thanks everyone! We booked the Springhill Suites per recommendations.
  12. Any favorite hotels for day before our cruise? We've been to San Diego and spent a couple days there, so this time just need hotel for one night. Appreciate any suggestions.....thanks.
  13. Very sorry to hear this. We took a cruise on the Edge after reading all of her favorable comments on the new ship. Such a loss to all of us,
  14. Out of the ordinary for us, but we recently flew into Vancouver the day of departure. Booked the Celebrity transfer instead of using cab/uber as usual. Someone from the cruiseline meets you at the airport and there are generally others in the group. You might want to check with Princess.....if they're doing transfers for your flight, you have a better chance of the ship waiting for a bus load of people.
  15. I left a bag of jewelry and a bag of medicines in a drawer on the Eclipse in October. Filed the lost/found report and so far nothing. Someone on the roll call for a following sailing checked for me but nothing was turned in. Doubt I'll ever see my stuff again. After many cruises, this was the first time I've done this trick! Left the items in the drawer intending to put them in my carry-on the next morning but in the rush to vacate the cabin I forgot them. Still kicking myself 😆 Sure hope you have better luck.
