  1. So what if Celebrity has GooP? How is this different from the art thing, acupuncture at sea, the spa, the on-board stores, etc. If you don’t want to partake, then don’t. Personally, I don’t think it will change my cruise experience one iota.
  2. Hello. I am starting research on a possible trip to Papeete for a few day en-route to Australia. I know that French is the predominant language. How much English is spoken there? For example would Air BNB hosts speak English? What about car rental agencies, gas stations, restaurants, etc. Would a non-French speaker be able to communicate? I want to minimize travelling stress on the family. Thanks for your help.
  3. We were on Reflection over New Year. We are early eaters, 5:30. First night we were seated at an inside table. We asked to be reseated to a window. No problem. Next night we were seated at a window in a different section. After that same window except for the last night were we we seated in a different section as we wanted window. Over all for us this works except if we want to get to the early show, then we have to skip dessert. Which I don’t mind, justifies the fancy coffee and liqueurs after the show. 😀
  4. We booked non refundable deposit onboard in December. Transfer the reservation to our big box TA. Last week saw that our cruise price went down. Called TA, got repriced, saved over $CAD1,000. Kept all perks, same cabin and OBC. Did a happy dance.
  5. DH and I are in Canada and are taking an Australia cruise in 2021. We will also be visiting family in Australia pre and post cruise and want to spend a few days in Hawaii on the way over. Can Cruise Air accommodate this convoluted travel plan or should we ask a TA for help? What is the advantages of using Cruise Air? Thank you.
  6. Got off the Reflection on the 3rd. We had a very nice time. Guiseppi(?) was the entertainment director. A very energetic guy for sure. For the person asking about the different drinks, I had a list as well, but ended up going though the various cocktail menus. Try the corona-magaritta at the sunset bar. Celebrity no. 10 at the world class bar. Nice thing, if you don’t like it, don’t finish it; get something else. Have fun.
  7. Got off of the Reflection yesterday after 7 great sunny days. Now I am home watching the snow come down -sigh. Only 444 days until the next cruise. It had been six years since our last cruise and we did notice some changes. Oceanview Cafe seems to have slipped, especially at supper. I missed being able to get sushi up there as well. Staff, for the most part did not seem to be as pleasant as previous cruises. Could that be due to a holiday sailing? This was our first cruise as elite. As we had spent 4 days in Fort Lauderdale, I took advantage of free laundry and sent out a bag the first morning. Got it back the next afternoon. DH loved the 90 minutes each of internet. We both had the premium package and took full advantage of it. I don’t think I had the same drink twice and did not have anything I would get at home, except the morning amaretto and OJ over ice. We did not do any speciality restaurants this time, as we thought them too expensive. Opus was fine for the most part. We had to send back our steaks once as they were very undercooked and one evening the potato was hard as a rock. A bit of a let down from previous cruises, were it seemed that they tried harder to get it right. This was the first time we booked our next cruise on board. We got all four perks with the premium package and a generous on board credit. Overall very good cruise. Now back to reality - where is that blasted snow shovel 🥶❄️

    Less than 2 weeks to go until our cruise on the Reflection. We have the premium drink package. I have promised myself this time not to waste it on the same stuff I drink at home. I have downloaded a cocktail list that another CC person posted a while back and have looked at all the drink menus posted. I think I have a good idea of some of the things I want to try. Do you have any favourites that I should try?
  9. Thank you all. I am an early bird and love the idea of a great cup of coffee nice and early. I am getting sooooo excited, 3 weeks to go!!!
  10. Funny story. I have a French background. At 9:00 am I asked for a “cafe au lait” thinking “cafe latte”. The barista gave me a funny look and said “This early in the day? Why not?” She made me a delicious cafe ole. Sorry don’t know what is in it, but I had a few more on that cruise. Hey, it was 5 o’clock somewhere🤗
  11. It is only DH and me, and I love using the spa shower while he does his thing in the cabin bath.
  12. Hello. Can anyone tell mw what time cafe al biaco opens in the morning. Will be in Reflection soon👏👏👏

  14. This summer a lady provided a list of drinks all nicely organized and downloadable. I lost it. It was going to be my drinking strategy on my up coming cruise. I tried the search function to no avail. Please help.
