While many tables for two are very close together, there are some that are not. You can certainly ask to be seated at a more private table, especially if you are willing to wait.

My husband and I normally check one 24" bag each--we get one bag checked free.

If going on a longer cruise we might also carry on a 21" bag, but not often.

I carry on the plane a small roller...

We usually stay here too; we use Hotwire, Priceline or other discounters and get very good rates. It's so convenient and very nice.

Although not with Celebrity, our notarized letters were very carefully checked--and all but one of the seven grandkids had the same last name as us. Our medical permissions were not notarized though,...

I use a digital camera--my phone is still a flip phone! and doesn't take great pictures. This last cruise I also bought a water-proof camera, so I took too many underwater pictures!

I usually have a sweater along in the evening--sometimes I need it, sometimes not, but it can be chilly indoors. A Pashinma, stole, light jacket, etc. work too.

We've been in a regular balcony cabin on the Eclipse before and were in a Concierge cabin in December.

Most of the 'perks' were kind of worthless. I did like the extra points and the footstool on...

We've zipped on Roatan and in Costa Rica (Pacific side). Loved both, but the Costa Rica zip was awesome--through and over a rain forest, over a rushing stream, stops at waterfalls, many, many lines...

I agree, skirts work great-but I expected cool to warm temps, from my research, not blindingly hot, in April. That was my mistake, not being ready for a heat wave. Weather can't be predicted--it...

We cruised the Med in May too; some of the ports were very hot in Mid-May, so do be prepared for that. Most people on our excursions wore shorts or capris, maybe a few sundresses or light slacks,...

There is absolutely no expectation or obligation to take ship tours--we hardly ever do. In fact, we'd only do a ship tour if there was no other viable option, having had some bad experiences with...

The dresses were just ok to me--I don't like the deep plunging necklines, like Julianne had, on anyone though. Just because you can wear something doesn't mean it looks good.

Caribbean and RCI! Not that Alaska or New England aren't great, but if this cruise is mostly for the kids, I'd go for warm and beaches, plus all the great activities on board.
