We're on the Explorer in the TP now. There are no cuts in benefits for us as D+ members. We can use the CL or the DL during the day but because of the large number of D and above members on-board...

Just boarded explorer for the TP. Denzil Fernandez is the Concierge and Jorge Delgado is the Diamond Concierge

They will get it for you. We've never had a problem getting a bottle of wine which was in the DR taken into a Speciality. It may be worth speaking to the DR manager in advance to get it delivered to...

Yes, that's the post to which I (and someone else) responded just a little above your post, both saying it doesn't work for us

Same for me - I'm in the UK so don't know if that's why, although I seemed to be logged into the .com site. I also changed the address manually in the address bar and got a page saying Sorry the page...

You leave your luggage out in the same way as if you were disembarking at an earlier time and it is kept in a separate setion. You will need to check out of your cabin but can do whatever you want on...

I would also recommend visiting Ravenna. It's a nice little town and the mosaics are stunning. However, if you really only want a relaxing day there is a lovely long sandy beach (Marina Romea) with...

In theory yes, but in practice it seems not always to be the case. Our last RC cruise was on Jewel in November and we took several bottles of wine into the DR and all the speciality restaurants and...

You forgot the D+ BOGO dinner - which everyone can do now as first night done right :rolleyes::rolleyes:

When our kids were teens we sailed on smaller ships with them (Legend/Splendour/Grandeur). We found that the teens really only want to hang out together and not necessarily do lots of organised...

Many of the responses on here are recommending 'sights' but for those who are interested just one train stop away - 5 mins (in the direction of Rome) is Santa Marinella which has a lovely sandy beach.

There is a train - but the reality is that the timings/frequency (or lack of it) often make it difficult for cruisers to get there and back. It's around 1 hour 40 minutes by train and then you need...

Well thanks for the advice but I do keep coming back to find out if there is any relevant new information. I just don't need to see some of the other stuff on here :rolleyes:

I've found the ignore button has been particularly useful in regards to this thread ;p

I predict LONG lines at the LA desks onboard. Just tried to choose our 2 bottles of 'Loyalty' wine for our forthcoming cruise and the option is no longer there. It's been hard enough in the past to...

I did start reading this thread initially when it was on-topic but zoned out when it became a lot of off-topic chat. Rather than scroll back through the whole thread does anyone have any indication...

Agree with others on here. Barcelona is such an easy port for disembarking. Be in the first group off, carry your bags off, taxis will be lined up waiting. We have caught a plane at that time on...

Exactly. Why penalise the late diners? The DL for us is a place to go for a pre-dinner drink so we usually get there around 7.30. This is one reason I like The RC lounges better than the Celebrity...

There were very high numbers on the Jewel TA and the machines were working but we were also allowed to get a coffee from Cafe Lattetudes or the Safari Club just by showing our seapass card. No...

And that's one example of where I wish they could adjust their rules. Our shortest ever cruise was 3 nights and we were allowed to take 2 bottles. Soon going to take our longest - 23 nights - and...

There are a number of factors to take into account - which is your port of call, how long you are there and what time of year.

The ideal would be if you have a long day and your port is Salerno...

On the first night it's no different to first night done right - in other words it's no longer a 'perk' as anyone on the ship can have the same thing. The only advantage would be if you wanted to eat...

I did the same thing and came to the same conclusion. Whilst I realise it's comparing apples with oranges I have booked a 3 bed 3 bath villla just outside Lisbon around the same time as this cruise...

Yes, there should be no problem doing that. Get to the terminal as early as possible. Check is usually underway by 11 am. Then just catch a port bus back into town (costs a couple of euros) and drops...
