  1. We did the 1st three legs with Celebrity over the last few years. Loved every one, our last cruise was leg 3 in January 2020 just before Covid-19.Would do all three again in a heart beat B2B2B but my husband thinks 14/15 nights on a cruise is just perfect🤷‍♀️.
  2. Following along. Love your comment about spending the children inheritance we do it all the time. Should say did!! Have a wonderful time and thank you for taking us along. Safe travels.
  3. Following along Anne I was so looking forward to meeting you on the October Transatlantic…. but it wasn’t to be😢. Needless to say I will be with you in spirit on this one…..have a wonderful cruise with your family. Noreen
  4. Miaminice, really enjoyed both your reviews of Japan....thank you. Would you mind sharing which cruise line are you booked with for 2022. We have two cruises booked Transatlantic Oct 2021 and Alaska May 2022 the Alaskan one has been moved on since May 2019. We have only ever cruised with Celebrity but are now open to trying other lines. Noreen
  5. Once I am fully vaccinated I would be very happy to book my own tours and freely roam while wearing a mask of course.
  6. Alan, the number I ring is 00441932835918. Always works for me. Good luck.
  7. My opinion......we cruised with Celebrity mid January Singapore to Dubai fabulous cruise loved every minute. Celebrity should have cancelled all further cruises from 1st February and may I add all passengers should have refrained from boarding...we all knew by then. We feel so lucky to have gotten home. Wishing everyone good health and keep safe.
  8. Dublin will not be welcoming any cruise ships for the foreseeable future. Would love to host and show you around Dublin after there is a VACINE.
  9. Thank you for posting this.....I did see and hopefully this will happen. But the world over now is trying to manage the current situation and what all governments are asking is so tough but they need everyone cooperation and to continue with social destining and self isolation. The hospitals are at capacity and we need to get this right over the next few months. The medical profession are amazing and they are making huge sacrifices to save thousands while putting themselves in danger and their families. Keep safe everyone.
  10. We have had wonderful land trips moving around every few days and staying in fabulous hotels. But nothing compares to the feeling when we get on Celebrity cruise ships ( only line we have experienced) and knowing everything will be taken of from the moment we unpack and kick the cases under the bed. It’s not for everyone but we love it and usually people we have to defend it to......have never cruised.
  11. I loved all of our Celebrity cruises, never had a bad experience with crew or fellow passengers. For the past ten years since retirement we were living the life....flying around the world loving all the new experiences but always happy to come home and give our children and grandchildren a big hug. Can’t even do that now due to lockdown and that is the most painful, difficult and scary part of the situation we find ourselves in. We have rebooked our Alaskan cruise for next May BUT until there is a vaccine we will not step on a plane or cruise ship. Sending you all best wishes and remember everything passes but we all have to play our part and above all try and keep positive.
  12. Take the cash and run.......who knows when we can cruise again. Life has changed as we know it....but on the other hand how can we spend money on lockdown? It’s a catch 22 situation....your choice.
  13. We choose not to pay final payment last week for our B2B Alaskan cruises in May. Just moved it all to May 2021 with our original deposit and keep our onboard credit. In the space of 4 days we have saved another 1000 Euro on price drops.....happy days.
  14. No one will be cruising anywhere until there is a vaccine. Totally irresponsible to suggest otherwise in my humble opinion.
  15. No cruising for us until they find a vaccine. We did not pay final payment for our cruise to Alaska in May. Lucky we booked on board and just moved it along to next year and kept our on board credit. We will keep doing that until it is safe to cruise/travel again. Needless to say we have flights to Vancouver and hotel paid in full.... On a side issue we have two package trips booked.....both 3 nights one to Krakow and one to Paris.....travel company telling us now......trips postpone not cancelled.....Don’t expect refunds there.....lot of travel companies will not survive this. Europe is almost in lockdown....keep your hard earned money until it is safe to travel again!!
  16. We were on the Constellation a few weeks ago and inquired about the five drinks for $29 and were told it was not available.
  17. Looks like the cruise has just been cancelled. What a shame for all......we were on this cruise from Singapore to Dubai 17 January to 1st February and had a fantastic time. The staff and crew on board are the best. It’s a shame for the passengers on the way to Singapore.....
  18. Definitely change your flight to a different connection point. We were in Singapore mid January for a cruise on the Constellation that ended in Dubai last Saturday. We noticed a lot of people wearing masks in Singapore and all the ports we pulled into. But now learning masks do not prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
  19. Anita, What a wonderful report....we are just back from our 15 nights on the Constellation, Singapore to Dubai what a great trip. Love the Constellation the crew are just wonderful. It’s due a refit in March, it’s still in good condition but will be wonderful after refit. Just finished your trip report over two nights....jet lag had me up and about during the night! We are on the Millennium North and South bound from the 22nd May 2020. Looking forward to seeing it after it’s refit. We figure what we miss on the way up we will catch on the way down. Your trip report has been fantastic for planning. I am a bit late with booking excursions due to all the planning I did for the Asia cruise so I better get cracking now. We we have been to Vancouver 18 months ago.....loved it including our ten days waking in the Canadian Rockies, the scenery was just amazing. Happy future cruising.
  20. Thank you so much for your very informative review. We are on the Singapore to Dubai leg on the 17th January and really looking forward. We seem to have longer days in ports doing it this way. We have 4 nights in Singapore before we board. I see from our roll roll call that a lot of people intend to travel to Agra as a side trip when we dock in Mumbai overnight. I personally think that will be challenging but each to there own. We did a land trip to Northern India a few years ago so having two days in Mumbai should be fun.
