I use Park N Fly (pnf.com) at Port Everglades. Always have had good service, pleasant help and drivers that get through the Port Security gate. You do call them when your ship returns but they are...

2nd cruise, first Celebrity

Cruised on Meridian in 1994 from Ft. Lauderdale to Bermuda. First cruise had been Nordic Empress. But Meridian was much better. I went alone and had a very good time. Although I had an inside...

Not so bad

I've bought one or two of these. They are not so bad to just wear once in a while instead of taking "real" jewelry. I leave most of my better stuff at home when I travel and this not-real gold...

I use a tiny wristlet bag. It's big enough for the cruise card, a few dollars for the casino and
a business card or two in case I need to exchange info with another passenger. Sometimes

No need to participate

Since St. Barts is French, the beaches are "optional." You need not go topless just because
some of the people do. The same is true is most French islands, including some at the French side of St....

New not needed

You don't need to buy new clothes. Don't forget, the people on the cruise have never seen the clothes you already have. Also, a general rule is take half the clothes you think you need:, a going to...

Cruise transfers

Now I know a lot of people won't approve of this answer: The cruise line/ship will offer bus
transfers to the airport. They do have flight time limits, but this can be the simplest way
to arrange...

not private

Roll Calls are not private. Sometimes I look at a completed cruise roll call to see what people have said about it. You should be able to look at any roll call on any ship.

Yes, you can

You can access the roll calls even after cruise is finished. Lots of times people will post reviews or talk about things that happened. People also share photos after the fact.
Also you can go to...

Another choice.

I have frequently used Park N Fly near Ft. Lauderdale port. Go online to PNF.com. Select Port Everglades (not Ft. Lauderdale airport). You get a good rate plus good service. Very helpful staff,...

Smile no shower curtain

BTW, the S class ships, which includes Silhouette, have glass doors on the showers. Best showers I've had on a cruise ship. Well designed and relatively spacious.

I know you didn't ask, but, how about Anytime, also called My Time or some version of it.
This way you don't have to pick one time but can go when you're ready.
BTW, on lobster night, I am...

no clothes line on Celebrity S class

For Ducklite: The Celebrity S Class ships do NOT have clothes lines in the showers. I love this class despite this lack, so I take a portable line which comes with clips. I can use it on the hooks...

Same trip

I did this trip last year on the Equinox. While I enjoyed the ports and the ship, I was DONE when we got to Ft. Lauderdale. I like the ship, I enjoy sea days but this was really too many for me. ...

Tampa has had pre-pay for several years. Of course they have fewer ships departing than Miami or Port Everglades (FLL). The parking lots are multi-story and across the street from the boarding area....

Although it worked out okay, I had accidently booked two things at same time and one I was late for. I do...

How about Celebrity

I've been on several of these lines,and I like Celebrity for many things. I've found a wide range of ages, some of us more your mother's age and some your age. I wouldn't say it is
