  1. This is something that we always try and do (having the same cabin on both legs of the B2B). When we do so, we leave everything in the cabin alone, then disembark, get new paperwork including new sea pass cards then get back on. The ship is yours (along with the other B2B passengers for a couple of hours) until regular boarding starts. Good luck!!
  2. We have limited experience with Celebrity and have only sailed on her 2 other times both in S1 categories. We sailed on the Solstice in 2008 when she was brand new and had a corner aft on deck 10 and it was great. The second time was 3 years ago to Alaska with some friends that we will be traveling with to the British Isles in 2021. We were on deck 6 in a S1 and that one was a disaster. First, the entry hall had a very narrow space between the bathroom and closet, if for some reason if the bride was in the bathroom and I was in the closet, we were always banging into each other....there ju
  3. Same for me, applied for a renewal for wife and myself back in February 2019 with GE cards expiring mid-year 2020. Paid all of he fees required and those were taken quickly, wife received her renewal card within about 2 months mine showed "pending review" for about 8 months, then "pending review" for another 6 months and the last time I looked it stated that mine has been "APPROVED". The last time I looked was about a month ago and of course there is no one to talk to or contact. My GE card has expired almost 10 months ago. I know that they have extended the time period to 12 months for t
  4. 1. Celebrity Reflection 6/30/2021 - Still unsure about this one 2. Liberty of the Seas 10/3/2021 3. Celebrity Reflection probably, however, we have already been devastated this year when our trip to Rome/Greece for our 50th Anniversary was cancelled so after that everything is just a minor heartbreak, not devastation.
  5. My apologies, I have been a member of that site so long I just made an assumption it was free. I paid nothing to join many years ago.
  6. I have to agree with Wine-o here. We have been in 1245 before and loved it. Anything close to the hump and close to the elevators on the angle going up to the lawn club is great. You can take a look at a web site called cruise deck plans dot com and join, it's free. Sometimes you can see the exact cabin you are looking to book because someone has posted pictures of the cabin. If not, there are pictures of similar cabins posted there so you can see what the balcony looks like.
  7. I must apologize about the country as stated being in Italy as that day was such a blur. It was actually in southern France and the town is in Eze. We spent the day going to several towns that day in both southern France and northern Italy. It's the old clock tower in the central part of the city and the highest point of the area. Walt Disney used to spend time there and the population dates back to the 900's I believe.
  8. Try the Hotel Barocco and talk with Christiano the Resident Manager for more information. We love it there. They usually have a package that gives you a free pick up at the airport then a transfer to the cruise port at a very reasonable price. The hotel is small but the service is 5* and located on the Plaza Barberini. Go to www.hotelbarocco.com.
  9. Cruising with a mask to me is not something I would do. I would rather stay at home and wait until time passes and there is a time to travel again without masks. If that does not happen, I will find other ways to travel other than cruising.
  10. What a wonderful board! Italy - Particularly the Amalfi Coast and Tuscany Caribbean - Aruba and the Hilton Rose Hall in Jamaica Switzerland - Interlaken & Bern with a stop at the Matterhorn Cap it off with Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia in the fall.
  11. We live in the Dallas area and have traveled from Galveston 5-6 times and always drive. We have met people from Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Colorado, Arkansas and Mississippi that have also driven to Galveston. Galveston has about 10 privately owned parking lots plus 3 fairly large port parking lots (owned by the city) with a good guess that parking close to the port to be around 5-7K vehicles. Then there are the hotels that have deals that allow parking at their facility if you stay with them prior the cruise or after the cruise, sometimes for a fee and sometimes included in the hotel
