  1. Just watched your youtube of your flight in suite class.... loved it! Really fun and funny! Anyone reading this, if you haven't watched it, do so now! It's great!
  2. Do suite guests still have the opportunity to walk past the often long queue of passengers waiting to embark after a day in a port? I seem to recall a 'suite only' gate/red carpet area at the head of the line... so suite guests could have priority embarkation after a tour etc.
  3. When, on a cruise, do AzAmazing Evenings occur? Of course neither the first or last nights... Early in a cruise? Mid? Late? I guess it all depends on the itinerary... Where have people had AA evenings? Which ports? Thanks.
  4. Wow! This is an answer far beyond our dreams! So much information! Amazing! Thank you so much! Eileen & Stephen
  5. In 2020 we're on a 20-something night cruise on Journey. We'll be Celebrity Elite + by then so we'll hopefully get some perks for that! Also, we're in in a CO suite so we'll get some perks from that too. We're not into spas etc. but we do love good wine. As for spirits, we don't mind 'ordinary' brands. Laundry: we get through lots and lots and lots! A full bag each day! Really! So, which would be the best package/deal for us? It's all rather confusing because we're AzNewbies! I've posted this on another thread too. By the way, we do wish that Celebrity had CC hosts and a Bonnie too!
  6. Okay, we need some advice linked to this thread: In 2020 we're on a 20-something night cruise on Journey. We'll be Celebrity Elite + by then so we'll hopefully get some perks for that!

  7. Lucky you! I tried, changed co.uk to .com but still had no luck. Pasted the message but didn't see any preview etc. and just a blank sig box at the end of the whole experience. Any ideas, Helen?
  8. Any Brits buying their Euros soon ---before the deal/no-deal of Brexit?
  9. We've never had the chance! Has anyone else outside of North America? A few cruises ago we were in a CS and a RS became available ----I saw it on the 'rooms available' section as if I were making a new booking. I called Celebrity and said that I'd like to make them an offer for an upgrade but had zero interest in my call and so my offer was rejected before it was even on the table!
  10. Also, some of the suites are hidden away behind a card-access area on Deck 14.
  11. I agree! I can't access them either! Please help!
  12. It has been so interesting reading everyone's experiences! There are obviously so many wonderful experiences to be had! Please don't forget the Nile. We went on a week-long (or was it 10 days...) Nile cruise a couple of years ago. Luxor to Aswan and back. Lots of temples, markets, Aswan dams (yes, there is more than one!) wildlife and sadly, poverty. There weren't many tourists art any of the sites because of the terrorism over the last decade or so. We walked straight into the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. We never felt in any danger throughout our cruise. There are plenty of soldiers around ----the Egyptian government realises that it needs tourists. Our ship was owned by Movenpick. We had expected 4* but in reality it was more like 3*. The restaurant was large and there was open-seating although the muslims prefered to be seated in on area away from the rest of us. This saddened me and so I went to sit amongst them (thinking that it was the staff who separated us) but I was soon ushered away by a guide. Poverty is a huge issue. In Aswan, so much is aimed at the tourists ----and there are so few. Chugging along the Nile we could see hundreds of tourist boats moored and mothballed awaiting better times. The good news is that recent surveys and other stats are showing that tourists are starting to return to the Nile. If you are considering a cruise along the longest river in the world, do it soon!
  13. As you will have read in my reply to you, some people did head into Dubai and they had an awful journey back to the ship. We were on the same ship as Orator.
  14. Yes, we were on the same cruise as you, Charles. I recall plenty of our interesting conversations in Michael's Club.
  15. We were on the UAE to UAE via Oman and India cruise a couple of years ago. Great cruise! NYE in Dubai: We have relations on the Palm in Dubai (we're the poor relatives!) and were invited to join them at a restaurant next to the Burj K. This is one of the main places for firework displays. We declined because so many of the roads would be closed as we returned to the Constellation. Instead, we stayed on the ship and watched from afar. The display was rather ruined by a sandstorm / fog and we saw just some of the fireworks. It may have been more impressive from that restaurant, I expect. As we enjoyed an extra drink in Michael's Club (open later than usual) people came in from the shore. They complained about the time & effort to get back to the ship. There were no shuttles. We both thought that the display in St Ives, Cornwall was far better. However, it may be difficult to get the captain to reroute from the UAE all the way to the UK!
