  1. Thanks for the reply, Anne. I hope you enjoyed your cruise.
  2. Question for Anne.. Besides the Gold and Spice souks, what other souks are open in the evening in Dubai? Karama? Deira? I read that Deira is supposed to be the largest night market (is this the right word?), but I can´t confirm that it is open. Thank you. I appreciate all information that you have previously posted. It has been very helpful in planning.
  3. Didn´t plan on it...but happy that we are on this cruise. Chocolate...yum! We´re getting off the Celebrity Constellation the same day and instead of flying home, we are extending our vacation!
  4. Yes, we live in Puerto Vallarta. But, we built a house at Lake Chapala and we spent our first summer there last year. At 5,000 feet elevation, it was very pleasant during the summer. Smart move on our part. I have not been to Mexico City in 50 years.
  5. Thanks for the practical advice. I will keep it in mind when it is time to pack. About 10 years ago, or so, we were walking around the mall in Dubai. The women were covered head to toe with only their eyes showing...but oh, how beautiful were their eyes. Made up like Cleopatra. They had sparkles on thir sleeves and carried designer purses...then they went in to Victoria´s Secret. We got a kick out of that. They also went into the high end jewelry stores and the sales people took them in to the back room and brought out the special jewelry from the vault.
  6. We´ll be in Dubai in early April where I anticipate hot and humid temperatures. How should a woman dress to be mindful of the conservative culture, but comfortable in the heat. Suggestions? P.S. I do know heat and humidity. We live in Mexico. The summers...ugh! Thanks.
  7. I just saw this post. Many thanks for taking the time to reply.
  8. Any problem spending the day at the beach at one of the hotels on Platys Gialos Beach while we are in port for the day? Can we rent a lounger and an umbrella and buy drinks and snacks? Any hotels friendlier than others to cruisers using their property? Your suggestions would be appreciated! Lauri
