  1. Hey Paul! Coincidentally, I found out just the other day that I have friends on this cruise. I'm sure at some point you will run into them since they frequent the bars regularly. Chris and May are from Toronto and are very friendly. Have a great cruise guys!
  2. You've got some wonderful images there! Thank you for sharing this as I enjoyed the whole thing on a very cold and crisp, waaaaaaaaaaay below seasonal, November morning!
  3. Did you or your partner ever get an explanation from Celebrity?
  4. Was your friend's email address ever used in a form on your computer? If it was, it could be that it was memorized and entered when you filled in your booking. When you and your friend traveled together, who was the primary on the booking? There is an explanation for it and it is not necessarily incompetence, or bad record keeping.
  5. Op, think of it as an adventure. After all, that is what your handle is, right? With an eight week old newborn, I don't have a cruise in sight so I would gladly trade places with you. Try and leave that dark cloud of negative energy at the pier and remember - you're going to be enjoying a week on the water while some of us are stuck on land, in the rain, and we have to make our own beds each morning!
  6. Jim, I'd recommend removing the photo of your boarding pass. Someone with nefarious intentions could do a lot with the ticket number and PNR visible. Looking forward to following along on your review. regrettably, no cruising for me anytime soon!
  7. Jim, have you considered Uber? We used uber when we docked at BCN last November off the Eclipse and it was painless.
  8. Very nice! Been 27 years since I was in Tokyo. Great city. I'm looking forward to your reports and photos. Smooth seas!
  9. Following. I was on the Eclipse (Med) cruise with you last November and had thought about the both the TP cruise on Millie and the Suez Cruise on Connie. Neither one happened since wife became pregnant and there will likely be no cruising for a few years. Have a great time! I remember there were some amazing deals for this cruise back in Jan/Feb!
  10. My wife and I have become Cruise and Airline agnostic. We'll travel on a variety of carriers and cruise lines wherever we think we'll get the best fit for that particular itinerary. The one thing the cruise lines need to understand, and I mentioned this on my very first cruise a couple of years ago on the NCL Jade, for some of us the cruise is the destination, or a big part of it, and not just a conveyance. I got the distinct impression NCL was trying to Ryanair the voyage. Some don't mind looking at air travel as nothing more than an A to B experience but to me, a cruise is a floating resort that allows me to see a number of places in comfort and with good service. If they start treating it as a ferry service, that's troubling.
  11. Forgot to add that I hope you enjoy Hong Kong. I have great memories from some of the trips I have taken that have passed through there in the last fifteen years. Never done it by ship, though.
  12. Excellent! Looking forward to this as I have my eye on the Millie transpacific at end of April. Not sure if I'll be able to do it, but at least I can dream!
  13. To each their own, I suppose. It makes sense if you are wearing attire without pockets. Since I am always wearing pants or shorts, I just keep it in my pocket. People should do whatever they're comfortable with - pocket, wristband, or lanyard.
