  1. Will be in Reflection Ireland/Iceland May 18. Anyone know who our Captain will be?
  2. Most of us agree that tipping above the normal on board gratuities is normal. My question is two fold. Our upcoming cruise will be in 3 different countries having 3 different currencies, Euros, British pounds, and Icelandic Krona. What currency do you tip in including US dollars? Secondly, do you give these additional tips at end of cruise or during cruise? We have always tipped at end of cruise but rethinking of giving during the cruise. Thoughts?
  3. Can anyone give first hand knowledge of what happens to any onboard credit if not used durning a cruise. Is it refunded back to your credit card?
  4. I’ve double checked with Celebrity and they have confirmed we can’t board until 4:30. Definitely not going to any speciality restaurants and risk having to leave in the middle of our meal. If boarding starts at 4:30, heavens only knows when we will get our luggage. I don’t t understand the late boarding since the ship arrives in Dublin the night before our cruise departs the following evening.
  5. We are sailing out of Dublin on the Reflection in May of 2020. We are trying to figure out the embarkation process. Celebrity has said we can board between 4:30 - 8:30 PM. We sail at 9:45PM. I’m not sure when to schedule dinner since the life boat drill will take place after 8:30 PM but before 9:45PM. On past cruises on the Reflection, concierge class passengers were assigned to the main dining room for the life boat drill. I don’t see how this is possible since dinner is being served. Can anyone who has had this late departure in Dublin shed some light on this? I called my Celebrity agent but he was as confused as I am. Thanks.
  6. Another possibility is to arrange for a car and driver to pick you and your luggage up at the airport and rent for about 5 hours. Have him take you to some of the sights in Dublin then on to the pier.
  7. We have had 2 cruises with 3 adults in a cabin, once on the Reflection and the other on the Silhouette. Both cruises were 12+ nights and had no complaints. The pull out bed is a trundle type but when only one sleeping space is needed, the cabin steward takes the bolsters off the sofa and makes it up as a bed. Plenty of room but I would imagine the firmness of the sofa dictates the firmness of the bed. If the bed is too firm you could always ask the cabin steward to add the unused mattress from the trundle to the single bed. Hope this helps.
  8. Thanks for the info. Did you check you baggage at the tent or had to take it on the bus ride to the ship?
  9. Sailing on the Reflection Ireland/Iceland May18, 2020. Itinerary says we sail at 10:00 PM. Any idea how early we can board? Trying to figure out if we can have lunch onboard that day.
  10. I received this from Celebrity on Dec. 26, 2017. New Gratuity Rates: Standard staterooms changed from $13.50 to $14.50 per day, per guest. Concierge Class and AquaClass® staterooms changed from $14.00 to $15.00 per day, per guest. Suite Class accommodations changed from $17.00 to $18.00 per day, per guest. Gratuities are shared by our exceptional onboard dining and culinary services team, stateroom attendants, other housekeeping services personnel, as well as staff from other departments who work behind the scenes to enhance your cruise experience. If you've already prepaid your gratuities or prepay them before you set sail, you will not be charged any additional automatic daily gratuities once on board. Other onboard gratuity policies remain the same: an 18% gratuity is automatically added to bar service beverages, specialty dining reservations, and mini bar items—and will be itemized on your receipt. Call 1-800-647-2251, log onto Celebrity.com, or contact your travel agent prior to sailing to prepay your daily gratuities at the current rates.
  11. I’ve downloaded the ap to my phone and my cruise on the TA Reflection appears. Once onboard do I have to have a WiFi package in order to access it?
  12. We love gaining 6 hours durning the westbound TA cruise. This year there is a bonus since we go from daylight savings time to standard on Nov. 4th, the day before docking in FL!
  13. Does anyone know what time lunch is served in the MDR for concierge class on embark day?
  14. You are able to share your wine with others at dinner or lunch if desired. You can also request that some of your wine bottles be delivered to your cabin if you want to have drinks in your cabin.
