  1. The Shibuya station map is very complex and does not show the store. Do you mean we have to exit the station, enter the store, move up to the floor of the Ginza platform and pay another ticket ? https://www.shibuyastation.com/shibuya-station-map-finding-your-way/
  2. Thanks for the tip. I'm trying to avoid the transfer in Shibuya to the Ginza line because it involves going from the lowest underground level to the top above-ground level (Ginza line), and there is no escalator or elevator to connect them, as far as I know. That's why I might find the transfer at Omotesando easier.
  3. We're trying to confirm that the route below is the best for commuting on Sunday September 22 when disembarking from the Millennium to Gaiemmae station in Tokyo: From Osanbashi Yokohama Cruise Terminal - Walk to Nihon Odori station - take MINATOMIRAI Express direction WAKOSHI Change in Shibuya to Tokyo Metro Hanzomonj line (Z1) for one station to Omoto-Sando (Z2). Is there an escalator/elevator to the Hanzomon (Z) line one level up from Fukutoshin (F16) ? At Omoto-Sando change to Ginza line (G2) – on the same level - for one station to Gaiemmae (G3). Exit 6 from Gaiemmae and walk to our hotel Nippon Seinenkan.
  4. Yes, those are the cards I was asking about. Sure, they are not "free", but give you a decent discount on the non-alcoholic specialty coffee. Only on the Eclipse you say ? Pity...
  5. Anyone sailing recently on the Millennium - did they offer a "coffee card" at Al Baccio Cafe ? This may be an ad-hoc offer on some ships.
  6. Thank you all - the mystery is solved. I found a sailing with deck 10 balcony cabin, shown as 2C. Oddly enough, when you select the "deck view" to select a cabin, (the Celebrity site), they use the pre-refurbished deck plan which shows no cabins at all.
  7. Even on Celebrity's own website there are no cabins shown as available in 2C or any category.
  8. Interesting. However, not one of the websites where you can book a 2C cabin shows any available on deck 10.
  9. They show deck 10 with the 13 A1 cabins 1000 - 1024. I actually checked before posting.
  10. Are there Aqua cabins on deck 10 post-refurbish on Millennium ? They don't show up as available on any cruise we've looked at. For a while you could book the 13 new A1 cabins, and one day they just disappears. I thought maybe one travel agent took them all, but maybe there's another reason. Did Celebrity mess up building these new cabins with adding the protruding balconies ? Just curious if someone else has more info.
  11. Following with great appreciation. We were with you the Eclipse both Baltic and TA to Argentina last year, and actually talked to you at the specialty bar. We're on the reverse sailing in September. Would love to know if a Coffee Card is offered at Al Baccio Cafe during your sailing, and how did the "surf" package work out to only $84 with Elite Plus discount ?
  12. After reading reviews about the poor reading lights in the refurbished cabins I picked up a couple of USB portable lamps at CDN $5 a piece https://www.aa-e.com/usb-portable-lamp.html
  13. When we boarded the Eclipse TA last November we asked about a Coffee Card when someone was selling beverage packages. He said NO - get the non-alcoholic package. Even at the Al Baccio Cafe they said they don't offer it. After the cruise our friends told us that YES - they bought one, and when it was finished, they bought another one. We are on the Millennium TP in September and wonder if it will be available for purchase. We don't drink sodas, and enjoy the specialty coffee at Elite breakfast event. We'd use the Coffee Card for afternoon and evening.
  14. I recall it was around 15 minutes as the bus had to exit the area where the ship docked, pass through a number of gates and out of the port area, through some streets, and then back into a secure area to the main terminal. It was fairly well organized. The first groups disembarked in a good pace, then around group #16 there was a delay of some 20 - 30 minutes. We were in group 22, and disembarked about 11:15am. Our luggage was at the terminal, and it appeared that all the remaining luggage groups were also ready on the floor. We had to put the suitcases through a screening machine before exiting the terminal. Do you need more info about getting a taxi to your hotel ?
  15. Norma, thank you for the detailed accounts. I am reading every post with great interest, as we are coming on for the crossing to Buenos Aires. The daily program shows "Taj X on 5" under causal dining. Any idea what it means? Is Elizabeth Captain Club hostess still on board to BA ? Check if there are any changes coming to the program levels, as I heard from someone on the Solstice mention it. onyourmark
