  1. I took a bartending class way back when in college and we were taught that a "part" does not mean a specific measurement. That word was used just to make the recipe that could be increased or decreased based on the size of glass. It's hard to put into words 30+ years later, but I can offer an example recipe: 1 part vodka 1 part rum 2 parts midori 3 parts simple syrup If you used 1 part = 1 oz, this would make a drink that was 7 oz and thus when adding ice you use a tall glass. If you wanted it in a small cocktail glass, 1 part = .5 oz, thus giving you 3.5 oz of liquid plus ice so use a small glass. So, 4 parts just means equal measurements of each liquor if recipe calls for 4 ingredients. If there are only 2 ingredients, then it's half one and half the other. This enables the bartender to memorize the recipe and then just customize it to the size of the glass. I'm sure bartending rules have changed since the 80s, but that is how we did it way back then. LOL
  2. It was pretty clear to me as well. I've read the charts from both sides and understood them each time. Not sure how to make it much clearer...
  3. OMG so amazing!!! Okay, this is our first Celebrity cruise, we've done four other cruise lines but Summit will be our first for this line so I have to ask. They have ice cream at the bars to make this drink?? Is there certain bars to ask for it at? (I realize I can't get frozen drinks at Cellar Masters and assuming Martini Bar) We've cruised Royal the most, and if we want, say a frozen mudslide (which we'd make with ice cream at home) they will use ice and whatever milk product they keep back there. But not ice cream. So Celebrity has ice cream at the bars? Or will they do what Royal does. Thanks!
  4. Great review! We're on Summit the day after tomorrow and can't wait! One question if you're around in next day or so @Turtles06, did the Captain tell you before leaving that you'd be sailing past the SoL? I want to be ready to record it if we do - I'm hoping we can as it's the repo to San Juan so she's saying good bye to the NY Harbor. I'm sure I'll be able to tell by the direction we are heading, but I want to be in a good location to periscope if we do.
  5. We like a toasted almond as our night cap...what is this frozen version? Sounds like a great hot tub drink!
  6. We're going to give this a try: http://www.barrachina.com/#servicios They will store your luggage from 9am on, so we expect to take our time getting off them ship, mosey on over to OSJ, then stop off at the restaurant to leave our bags. We'll wander the area a bit, return back and have 2nd breakfast/early lunch, collect the bags and taxi to the airport for our 2:15pm flight. Since we need to be there a minimum of 2 hours for the ag screening, we'll catch a cab around 11:30-45am.
  7. It works the same way going from Royal to Celebrity - if I am Diamond Plus on RCCL I'm only Elite on Celebrity. The highest levels cannot be transferred, they must be earned.
  8. It's for security reasons, harder to break a 6 digit code than a 4 if your card is stolen. Same logic as using longer passwords.
  9. Here we can have 4 or 6. Our bank assigns us 6, and if we want 4 we need to reset it.
  10. Not sure how much this is prevalent in Spain as it is in Italy (we're making our first trip next year) but when my son studied abroad in Italy this past year he had to make sure all his pins were only 4 digits. We also got him a travel credit card to avoid foreign transaction fees.
  11. We're on the same sailing. I'm just starting to research this sailing and look at air, hotel and stuff to do!
  12. We'll be there two days before you. This is my last port where I'm trying to come up with what we want to do, as I know nothing about that part of France. Day 1 of Marseille research has begun...LOL
  13. We've sailed on both Adventure and Grandeur, and will be on Summit in October. Adventure offers you more to do; more venues - pub, etc and promenade instead of centrum. Has mini golf, ice skating. Grandeur offers you views of the ocean from everywhere, less venues but the ones they have are bigger and have views of the ocean. Has rock wall. We loved them both - but they offered us different experiences. We did Adventure with our college aged kids and their grandparents, we did Grandeur just the two of us.
  14. I don't think you'll get an answer until the amp is done. We really only know what's been mentioned in the promotional materials right now. There will still be a dedicated area, it just won't be as big. From my own teen's experiences, most of the space was always empty as the teens were out and about in other places. They rarely hung out there but instead met up other places.
