  1. Last fall, we spent several days pre-cruise at the Hampton Inn, Waterloo. A short walk to the Waterloo rail and tube stations. And we walked from the hotel to Westminster Abbey, as well as to the London Eye. The hotel was more "upscale" than Hampton Inns in the U.S. (and with a much better breakfast!). We booked pretty early, watched the prices, and when we saw a drop, we modified our reservation accordingly. P.S. By "bullet train" to Paris, I'm sure you mean the Eurostar. Just an fyi that the earlier you book it (once seats go on sale for your date), the cheaper it will be. If you aren't familiar with this web site, it's invaluable reading before you book the Eurostar: https://www.seat61.com/
  2. @CC Help Jenn besides the white screen and Error 500, in the past couple of hours some threads have lost their most recent posts, and I can see that my most recent notifications of followed threads have disappeared as well. (That is, next to the bell icon, recent notifications that I saw a couple of hours ago are now gone.) I deleted the CC cookies on my laptop and re-started it, but this made no difference. The same problem is still there, and that's the case across all my devices and browsers. (Windows 10 Laptop', Chrome and Edge), iPhone and iPad (Safari). By way of example, here's one thread that I am certain had more recent posts than the last one (number 488) that is showing now:
  3. Celebrity sails seasonally from Cape Liberty (Bermuda, and New England/Canada cruises).
  4. For several years, Celebrity has run a westbound TA in the fall from Southampton to Florida by way of Boston, then an overnight in New York (Manhattan Cruise Terminal), then an overnight in Bermuda, a port call in Nassau, and on to Florida. Celebrity calls this "Boston, Broadway, and Bermuda." We did this TA last fall on board the Silhouette, which is our favorite ship. We love TAs, and this one was fun (despite some itinerary changes so that we could avoid a major storm moving across the Atlantic). It's a crazy itinerary! Celebrity will be offering the same cruise this fall, leaving Southampton on October 24.
  5. You are asking a bunch of folks on Cruise Critic whether you should go? What do your doctor and physical therapist say? Aren't they the most important people to ask? I had rotator cuff surgery when I was a good bit younger than you are (also on my dominant arm). As you are seeing, for many people this is serious, painful surgery, with a long and often painful recovery. You don't snap back to normal quickly; you can't sleep the way you would like to (I remember all those nights in a recliner), etc. PT is critical -- are you still doing physical therapy now? Would you be able to do it on a ship? The fact that your doctor has you off work for six months suggests that your surgery was even more extensive and debilitating that many of us have experienced. In any event, and I'm sorry for commenting on your husband, but in light of your circumstances, he seems very inconsiderate. I have no idea what kind of cabin you have booked, but a two-week cruise is a long time to not be able to address your genuine physical concerns in the way that you are doing at home. Again though, never mind what I or anyone here on Cruise Critic might think -- what do your doctor and physical therapist think? Do you have trip insurance that would cover a cancellation if your surgeon says that you should not go on this cruise now? I wish you all of the very best in your recovery.
  6. You have resurrected a thread that has been inactive for five years. (It also has nothing to do with Celebrity, but you did not start the thread.) However, as someone who had rotator cuff surgery when I was a good bit younger than you are, your post so concerns me that I would like to respond. As you are seeing, for many people this is serious, painful surgery, with a long and often painful recovery. You don't snap back to normal quickly; you can't sleep the way you would like to (I remember all those nights in a recliner), etc. PT is critical -- are you still doing physical therapy now?

Do you have trip insurance that would cover a cancellation if your surgeon says that you cannot go on this cruise now? I wish you all of the very best in your recovery.
  7. I hate to say this, but I had a couple of blank white screens last night (Saturday), and I just got an Error 500 message trying to open a specific thread (Sunday, May 26). I hope this problem isn't starting up again...
  8. I agree. There used to be a “start new topic” option in each ship’s Roll Call (besides “reply to this topic”), and many folks were choosing that when of course all they meant to do was post in their Roll Call. When they erroneously hit that button, their post appeared as as a new thread in the home page of that ship’s Roll Call. After numerous complaints, CC recently disabled that button in the Roll Calls.
  9. There were issues recently on notifications, and I think CC made some adjustments (lots of folks were getting unwanted notifications). Just go into your notification settings and set them the way you would like, and you should be okay going forward.
  10. Qsine on the Summit is still Qsine. According to a recent "live from" thread, the plan to replace it with LPC is on hold for now (apparently because of negative feedback re LPC).
  11. I highly recommend GeoIceland. We had a fantastic South Coast tour with them last September. They use small mini-vans, and we had a number of them filled with folks from our ship. (The guides spaced things out so people weren't all turning up at the same place at once.) Our guide was one of the best we've ever had. The day was very long and tiring, but well worth it. I can't imagine having gone several more hours (especially as we had a full-day Golden Circle tour the next day.) The South Coast is absolutely stunning. Be sure you are wearing waterproof shoes and have rain gear with you. If you'd like to see a few of my photos from our South Coast tour, they are at post number 8 on this thread (and you'll see why you need rain gear, even on a sunny day ):
  12. I just did the same from Shutterfly, no problem. (DId you delete your image once you tested the post, because it's not there now....)
  13. Folks, there’s a Need Help forum specifically for addressing technical questions like this, and a thread already there about this very issue:
