  1. We booked gty balcony, originally assigned an obstructed cabin, upgraded to “regular “ balcony , 8th deck midship. No charge. Celebrity cruise line, our first time. I’m not complaining 😁
  2. We’re still tasting the buffet😁 carnival Royal HAL Celebrity in 30 days
  3. Well, my cabin number has changed in the app, but no email yet. I’m not going celebrate quite yet, but I’m much more hopeful now😁
  4. Ship:equinox sail date October 28 Cabin booked: veranda guarantee Email received 8/17 bid on ultra deluxe veranda $175 bid on sunset veranda $200 currently assigned 6188, obstructed view don’t really expect either bid to be accepted, but I figured why not try. I’d be delighted to get the upgrade, but if I don’t I’ll still be on a ship on the sea and having a wonderful vacation
  5. Both my offers say pending. One I can modify and one I cannot. Does that mean they might accept the one that I can’t modify?
  6. I apologize. I will not make this mistake again. might not even ask any more questions
  7. Thanks for the prompt reply, I do have an invoice from the TA. I will be sure to take it with me
  8. I’m sure this has been asked but I can’t find it. We booked with classic drink package, gratuities, and WiFi. But when I look at the cruise on the website it only shows our OBC. is this normal? We are new to celebrity thanks
  9. Has anyone done the old San Juan walking tour through celebrity, the one that uses “technology “. I’m assuming that takes the form of a headset and map🤷‍♀️? wondering if it’s worth the money or can we just get off the ship and do it on our own? We really want to see the fort
  10. The only time I wear waterproof mascara is on a cruise / beach vacation. I find it a pain to use makeup remover to get it off in the evening, but less of a pain than having it run down my face. That and some eyebrow pencil and lipstick, and I’m done, and of course sunscreen 🙃
  11. Totally agree 🤣 the sad part is we had to miss our stop in the Bahamas because it was so windy we couldn’t safely get in
  12. Our last Caribbean cruise on of my false eyelashes blew off….
  13. If physically able take the stairs instead of the elevator and visit the gym a few times. There will be plenty of fresh fruits and veggies available I’m sure. And more than likely you can have the meat portion of an entree without the sauce or with it on the side if there is one.
  14. We’ve been on Koningsdam and Niew Statendam, loved both, will sail either again. Music walk was excellent. One of the more enjoyable parts of the evenings. Food was excellent and service as well. In fact, I do not expect the service on our celebrity cruise this fall will come close. But that’s ok, I’ll still be on a ship in the Caribbean. if you enjoy relaxing with a drink and listening to music you won’t be disappointed on HAL.
  15. We were sailing out of Amsterdam, little did I know when I booked the cruise that there was a HUGE convention in town the two days before we sailed. Not a hotel room in sight. We wound up a 30 minute train ride away from the city with a view of a sports arena. But the trains were efficient, clean and on time. We made it work, but it was disappointing to not get to stay In Amsterdam itself
  16. Even though I’m a redhead I do get some color when I’m in the sun, not a lot mind you, but not Casper the friendly ghost white. Second night I got all gussied up for prom night (Caribbean cruise) and looked in the mirror to realize that my face looked like a ghost while my chest and arms were pink. Not burned , a gallon of sunscreen prevented that. But I had left my “summer “ makeup at home. made an expensive stop at the shops that night
  17. Excellent news! I can stay hydrated and get costumed up! This is going to be fun
  18. I resemble that remark. Grapes are good for us right? I consider it a serving of fruit
  19. Hi all, it’s been waaaay too long. We haven’t cruised since before the pandemic lockdown. kinda feel like I haven’t breathed since March 2019. Anyway, we are trying celebrity for the first time. We are booked on Equinox for Oct 28. my questions are: with classic drinks package can we get bottled water and premium coffee? also, since we will be onboard on Halloween, will there be a costume party? I’m sure there will be more. I’m so happy to be cruising again😁
