  1. Hi Jim, I feel like I'm spamming you with off topic Qs 😂 We have booked a B2B - Singapore to Japan and then Japan to Vancouver on the Eclipse in April 2021 (immediately post revolution 🤞unless they change the date again) . Interested in your comment about being unsure on doing the Japan crossing again? Would you still recommend a one-time experience? I know you had a lot of weather issues. Many thanks, Kym.
  2. Suite looks great Jim. How's the sliding door between the bedroom and lounge? Be nice if they did that on the Solstice class refit. Btw, did you say you are on the Eclipse late 2020? Did you know that the Dry dock has been pushed out to 2021? Thought I'd let you know.
  3. Thanks Jim. I thought that was the case. We too are keen on a safari and then cruising back to Australia. Happy cruising.
  4. Hi Jim, looking forward to another of your reviews. Apologies for being off topic, but did you ever book the Azamara cruise to Africa? I recall that you mentioned it in a previous thread? Celebrity offerings in that part of the world are somewhat limited. Txs.
  5. Interesting thread. I may have got the wrong end of the stick, but I was told that in addition to scoring staff, the survey scores are also used to define what type of guest you are. From memory, guests providing scores in the 8 to 10 range are likely to be "promoters" of Celebrity. Guests providing mid range scores are "passives" and guests providing lower scores are likely to be "demoters" of Celebrity. Suggests that good old fashioned word of mouth marketing still holds value?
  6. We are just off the Solstice transpacific. Couldn't figure out why there was a gap in the Eclipse sailing dates when looking at booking a future cruise for 2021. I guessed that a delay in the dry dock had occurred and this was confirmed by the future cruise staff. The new itinerary was a plus for us so we booked B2B Singapore to Vancouver. I feel for the others who booked on the previous schedule and intineray. Based on our experience the Solstice transpacific will not disappoint!
  7. Suspect the Eclipse will be more X-cie than the Solstice once it's been edgified or revolutionised.
  8. Good point. I'll check for gremlins 🤣
  9. Thank you. I just dug out the email from our last cruise so will use that if they haven't contacted us by next week.
  10. What's the chances of that! Well probably quite high given there are only 8 RS🤣 seems appropriate given that might be the closest that we get to meeting. Your gift is your kindess in offering to help 🙏 wishing you safe onward travels.
  11. Woohoo 👌 thank you 👏 for your efforts on this. Why I love CC and all its helpful members.
  12. Thank you. That is great news. Just need to hear from the concierge so that we can book! Yes the who's on board is interesting. First and foremost you want a captain who keeps the ship safe! Like any organisation though, the person at the top sets the tone and we have been on a cruise where the captain was not very engaging and the crew didn't seem happy or motivated. We loved Capt Tasos (he's going to the Equinox) but good to hear Capt Alex is filling his shoes. We are in 1241, deck 10. Is that where Rikki is?
  13. Thank you for taking the time out of your cruise to respond to me JMB27. You are correct, this is in relation to our 23 Sept cruise and I'd love any update you can get on LPC. It's still showing as LPC at Silk Harvest on our cruise planner. Thanks for the advice about the shoreside concierge, sure hope she is ok. We will just keep contacting Celebrity and see how we go. Happy cruising and hope Captain Alex is putting on a great Alaska show for you.
