  1. We were just in Valencia last month on Celebrity Reflection. There was a line of taxi cabs waiting to take passengers wherever they wanted. We chose this option to go to the Plaza de la Virgin. This was a fast and easy option and it was easy to hail a cab when we were ready to return to the ship. Precruise we signed up for a tour that started here at 10:30 am. It was by Free Tour Valencia and the guide was a former school teacher. It was a pleasure to listen to her storytelling. She walked us to all of highlights including the market. After the two-hour tour she recommended her favorite lunch spots. This is the time paella is eaten. Of course we reached the restaurant a bit before it’s 1:30 opening time. But once they opened what an amazing lunch. Enjoy Valencia! It was one of our favorite stops on our cruise although all of the ports were wonderful. Paul
  2. He said he is going home after the current cruise. But he gets back on board right after your TA cruise.
  3. Good morning cruisestitch! Bon voyage! A few questions for you.... Would you be kind enough to post a copy of your itinerary here? What show was in the theater last night? Who is the cruise director on Reflection currently? What brand of bottled water can I get on the classic beverage package? Thank you! Paul
  4. We had a slant on Equinox last year and loved it. It was the most forward slant, so we could peek forward and see the bridge or look back and see the whole side of the ship which was awesome. Privacy was not an issue and the huge balcony was great. I would definitely seek one out again if one were available. Paul
  5. We cruise Celebrity for the most part. We love the line and will be on the Reflection next month in the Med. We were on Celebrity Silhouette in January 2016 getting our first taste of the suite life on a typical 7-night Caribbean itinerary. We had a great cruise as usual. When the vacation website I frequently peruse showed the Crystal Cruises November 2017 9-night itinerary with a couple of new-to-us ports at a surprisingly affordable price along with an attractive on-board credit we gave it a shot. So value, itinerary, and a taste of luxury basically. We fell hard. Loved the smaller, homier ship atmosphere, true promenade (often empty) deck, abundance of available sun beds and barstools, great service, great food and beverage. Don't care about cabin size. Well Hurricane Irma hit those new-to-us ports hard, but Crystal successful managed to find new replacement ports which ended up thoroughly enjoying. More Crystal Cruises will be in our future.
  6. Thank you for sharing the videos. What a gorgeous ship!
  7. Go up to post #2 and click on the link. I think you have until August 7th actually.
  8. Loved our main dining room experiences on Equinox last year. And LOVE aft staterooms!
  9. Have a great cruise! When you return please post what you ended up doing. Particularly interested in Villefranche/Nice.
  10. Thank you for all of the great recommendations. Malaga looks like a lovely city to explore on one's own.
  11. Rick, Thank you for the reply. The link you posted is very helpful.
  12. Hotel Nouvel is on our short list of choices. How was it?
  13. We are looking on the Sagrada Familia official website at tickets for September 17th that include Sagrada Familia ticket, tower, and audioguide. Which tower should we choose? The choices are Tower on the Passion façade or Tower on the Nativity façade.
