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...

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:

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...
