  1. Thank you all for your responses! Right now Any cruise is just a dream, but we are hoping for better days. We are enjoying comparing cruises/ports/prices after a too long of a respite....and making lists. Stay well!
  2. I will do just that, Thank You! I have not been on cruise critic in a while now...where is the search box in this forum? Thanks! Haha......I would not call Celebrity a "party" cruise line. We are interested in how the two compare though.
  3. We are READY to be pampered and go on vacation ---- but Waiting like everyone else in the world. Oceania sent a brochure and a number of the cruises sure looked intriguing. We have only cruised on Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. Could you all tell me what is better/worse/different between Celebrity and Oceania? I know, everyone has their own opinions....but we just want to figure out if we want to branch out and try a different cruise line. We would probably want to do the O'Life (especially if we cruise in the Med ---- for the flights -----since we are from the USA). Is there a Main dining room as well as the specialties? Do you need to make reservations each night? I see from briefly looking at this board that you can upgrade to premium beverage package for $20..00/day per person. That is on par with Celebrity. What are the average ages of the cruisers? How is the music and shows? We are finally retired (and of course.......all our trips/plans for this year have been cancelled).......so we are very anxious to start up our new retired lives when it is safe to do so. Stay Healthy everyone! I will appreciate all of your opinions and suggestions. Thank You!
  4. We too will need to rebook several cruises, as they are cancelled. Very disappointing, but hopeful "this too shall pass". Stay Healthy!
  5. Ditto.....we are retiring in May. Planned a few days in Ireland, then a cruise out of Dublin. Then a week long adventure around Ireland....Then fly to Barcelona to catch Connie to Venice.....and a few days in Venice before heading home....Our dream retirement trip.......will have to be postponed. We Want to reschedule, but also want to wait until it is safe to travel. I think we will need to wait for a vaccine before we feel safe to be out of the country. We will be "first on board" when we can!! So, in the meantime, I will dream my dreams, stay home and stay safe, and continue getting my cruise fix by reading cruisecritic. It is nice to read the positive posts and the jokes and stories. Bummed out about our cruise out of Dublin -- it would have been our 1st time having All 4 perks and Plenty of OBC (so we bought a 4 night dining package and a couple tours).....That was a Great Deal! Keep Well!
  6. Our cruise out of Dublin on May 8 was cancelled around 5 pm yesterday. Not surprised, but of course disappointed. Now, just Praying for the World to heal.
  7. The Constellation was, I thought, to be revolutionised in late April/May 2020. We were supposed to be on her for the First revolutionised sailing on May 26, 2020. Still have that booked, doubt it will happen (Barcelona to Venice). Stay Well Everyone!
  8. This has probably been answered before, but I can't seem to find it. Does Royal Caribbean have perks included if we were to ever book a suite? (Such as Celebrity has their 4 perks included: Deluxe Bev. Pkg, Grats, WiFi and OBC with their suites). Thanks!
  9. We have been on Reflection 2 times, once in the Caribbean and once in the Mediterranean. I think people do tend to dress up a bit more in Europe. We will be on Reflection once again for a 10 Night, Ireland, England and Scotland cruise in May 2020 and I expect most people will dress nicely for dinner. I think it is fun to dress up a bit since I never do at home! I'm excited about our new adventures coming up "soon"! My opinion, of course 🙂
  10. We bring a pad of paper and a pen.....in case we need to write notes (cabin attendant, etc.). A small container of laundry detergent -- to wash items in the sink. a thin rope to string across room (use with strong magnetic hooks), to dry more items. We recently bought a circular "clothes hanger/dryer" -- that uses a magnet to connect to the ceiling -- it has clips and works very well. Also, some Tide To Go Pens -- for stains. I "don't leave home without them"! You will have a Wonderful Time! 🙂
  11. I wrote a review of our recent cruise. Here is the link, if you are interested. https://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=668974&et_cid=3214772&et_rid=162553609&et_referrer=220x90 Titled: "Not Impressed"
  12. I LOVE the Anne books! We will definitely visit Green Gables when we are there next year! I'll need to borrow the book back from my mom :) Thanks for posting!
  13. cruise wizard....We usually book well in advance, so we are just taking our chances on Vision next year for the Snowbird cruise. Hope we have good luck like you did (w/o all the rigmarole). For now, looking forward to 9 nights pre-winter relaxation on Grandeur (1st time on Grandeur).
