changing tables

We like tables for 6-8 but not set dining times. We have found over the years that most times the set tables are not full, often sitting alone at table for 6 or more. So we like the My time dining...

Yes, a travel clock. Mine lights up when you touch it - very handy when waking up during the night and not knowing what time it is. It also resets very easily for those time changes announced by...

Usually, and I emphasize that, the MDR is not open for lunch. Try the fee optional Bistro on 5. Much less frantic than the upstairs 'cafeteria' and the food and service are very nice. The price is...

finding agents

"Find a Travel Agent" link down at the bottom of the celebrity home page? Never used it but it might be what you're looking for.
You put in your zip code and a list of agents near you will come...

Just off the Connie on a cruise from Venice to Rome. Ship is fine and has been upgraded by being Solsticized. BTW, Captain Tasos is terrific, friendly, amusing and personable. He has a wonderful...

Speaker on Constellation June 21 cruise

Mike Siegel was a speaker on our Constellation Med cruise: three talks on Mediterranean history, myths and ports. He was very interesting and well informed. Too bad more passengers didn't take...

for Caitkin 1111

While European ports are more "dressy" than ones in the Caribbean, you need not bring 'work' clothes. In the Caribbean shorts and tee shirts are the norm. In most Europe ports, slacks or jeans or...

It depends...

Like most things on cruise ships, it depends on the itinerary, the passengers and the ports. I find the casinos are more crowded on Caribbean cruises and less on European ones where the ports are so...

Most on list all done

Going to take two off the list next month when I get to Venice and Dubrovnik on a 10 day Med cruise. Only ones that will be left are Australia and New Zealand. But I also still like some Caribbean...

That's my favorite location on S Class ships. I pick those cabins every chance I get. No wave action but lots of views!

Not an easy answer

It is not so much a matter of how many cruises, as how long they are and what kind of cabin you have. You'd have more complete information on the CelebrityCruises website under Captains Club. If...

Easy to buy

Any hardware store or Lowe's or Home Depot will have a variety of these in sizes from small to huge. You can get the magnets with clips or hooks, as you need. And someone there will direct you...

two ways to go.

although most people assume using I-95, don't forget about the Florida Turnpike. Yes, it is a toll road but quite reasonable. Also, there are many fewer exits, so it

To me there are two reasons for select dining:
1. You go when you feel like it each day. Some days early, some days later.
2. You don't get 'stuck' with people you don't care for or, worse,...

Not necessarily

Don't believe the "fully refundable" part. The on-board deposit can be transferred to another cruise but you do not get it returned. I just went through this: my excellent, experienced travel...

Rental option

Hertz also has a downtown rental office. They will transfer you to the port for free after you turn in your car. Or a cab is about $15. We usually take the cab as their van is crowded and you need...
