  1. As an elite on both Celebrity and Princess, I have a fair amount of experience on both. I like Celebrity better - my late DH and I always said, Celebrity is just a bit nicer. I agree that the Celebrity cabins are just a bit larger, but the storage isn't quite as good, IMHO. The elite perks are, again, just my opinion, just a bit better on Celebrity. I like the public areas a bit better on Celebrity, too. I prefer to sail Aqua on Celebrity, which, of course, is a bit nicer than regular Celebrity. That being said, I have cruising friends that prefer Princess, and it is just fine with me. I think that if you like one, you will like the other, too. ohiodoglover
  2. Thank you for posting. I am enjoying your review. It is nice to read something positive these days. I am very glad you had fun. Ohiodoglover
  3. I'm a big fan of sea bands. They work for me. I also tend to get land sick after cruises. Sometimes i take Bonine. Sometimes I use the bands. Sometimes I just tough it out. Strangely enough, I don't get it as much if there is a delay of several hours or more from disembarkation to airplane flight. Whether that is real or imaginary, I don't know. Ohiodoglover

  5. I love to cruise and love to travel. I am one of those people who always asks, "where have you been? What did you did? What did you like? What tips do you have?" I don't care if you did an around the world cruise or a driving trip to Lake Erie, I want to know everything I can about it. Maybe I'm silly, but I'm also always looking for ideas. I wish i had the time to be E+. Not yet, but I'm working on it. Ohiodoglover
  6. That's the recipe. They add a slice of lemon. Got it on a cruise a few years ago. When I make them, i add a bit of lemon juice, because otherwise, I think they are a bit too sweet.
  7. I agree with the comments above about ATMs, Visa and MasterCard, etc. I try to get Euro from a bank ATM as soon as I land at the airport. Be mindful of the withdrawal limit (if any) on your ATM card and the conversion. I have seen that goof people up who forget about that. I also try to use credit cards a lot of the time and always charge in the local currency. I always notify my bank and the credit card companies. Generally, I have a few Euro left over when I come home, and if so, I put them away for the next time. However, using the ATM at the airport works so well that I don't really need them. Have a great time on your trip. Ohiodoglover
  8. Great review. Wonderful overview of this cruise. Thank you for posting. Ohiodoglover
  9. I don't understand the furniture. It just doesn't look comfortable at all. What in the world were they thinking?? What a nice husband to get you a real lounger. That looks much better than the junior high school chairs. Have a great trip. Ohiodoglover
