  1. Thank you GerScot, that maybe explains the photos!
  2. Apologies if this has been asked before. We have never cruised with Celebrity before., and were looking at online photos of 2B (deck 7 Verandah) cabins as we are going soon. None of the photos show tea & coffee making facilities, which seems very unusual. Are there any please? Surely room service first thing every morning for everyone would be crazy?
  3. Thank you. Yes indeed I did get seasick and as I never have before my first trip across the Bay of Biscay last September, I actually wasn't expecting to. I was given Stugeron once before, for dizziness caused by an inner ear infection, didn't help much and gave me an almost permanent nose bleed! True enough that everyone could react differently. Maybe I'm just an awkward one...?
  4. I'm really sorry, I know it's been answered before but I can't find it. I have searched & searched and all I am finding on this subject are the US medications named and compared. I have a pack of both Dramamine & a pack of Cyclizine. Both say they'll cause drowsiness. Both appear to work in the same way. Has anyone tried both of these and found that one is better than the other please?
  5. Ah. It worked then, thank you for doing that - it seriously wasn't in evidence in September!
  6. We did our first cruise on QE last year and immediately booked for this year on our return. The pillows are too soft for my liking and the shower curtain is a nuisance but everything else was lovely. If you are big on entertainment QE's probably isn't the best but (as already stated) this is subjective. kohl57 is right - the decor is a bit 'beige' but we didn't have the open deck problem he experienced. We were a month later travelling than kohl57 - so maybe someone had already complained and it had been fixed?
  7. Thank you Alan. With that, and the deck plan, this makes much more sense now.
  8. Please is anyone able to offer me some insight into how Saga's cabin grades work? I've looked into it as best I can but am learning very little. I know I could ring them and ask but they are a little bit pushy once they find someone who's got half an interest and I'm not really up for being hassled just yet. Sorry if I've hijacked a thread about something else, it's the Discovery I've seen an interesting itinerary on.
  9. Hi, Having found some Saga customers - please is anyone able to offer me some insight into how their cabin grades work? I've looked into it as best I can but am learning very little. I know I could ring them and ask but they are a little bit pushy once they find someone who's got half an interest and I'm not really up for being hassled just yet. Sorry if I've hijacked a thread about something else but (as stated) there s little to find on here re: Saga cruises.

    Wow! Were they all different?

    Cruiseluvva is right Hattie, at least you don't need to worry about bringing your own/hiding it/explaining it/disguising it/buying a luminous pillowcase for it! I'm just impressed that nobody said it was a stupid question.

    Pillows

    Thank you Cruiseluvva (and possibly BigMac) that does sound like a possible solution as well; because you are right they are too soft and there's no support at all. Thank you.
  13. Hi Bluemarble, I had noticed that and my first thought was that it was a 'dumbing down' - I do hope not, but it does read like that, doesn't it? Hope I'm wrong.

    Hi Cabinet, That's amazing, that he would take something from the wardrobe. Having said that, if there are so many Cunard options for pillows, perhaps he thought it was one of theirs and that it was in the wardrobe because it was in the way in the cabin? Who knows? I think you are right that a brightly coloured pillowcase might be the answer, especially for an expensive one to lose. Perhaps alerting the steward to the fact that you've brought your own (as Camgirl said) might also be a good move. I think my memory foam one might be going on holiday! Many thanks.

    Hi Camgirl, Thank you for your reply. That's a worry though - if you've never found one you like there's a good chance I won't either! I'm so glad it's not just me and I'm grateful not to have been told that it was a stupid question as well. No flying for us either so I'm seriously considering taking mine now. Thanks for the bright pillowcase tip. Best wishes,

    Hi Pepperrn, Thank you for this, sensible to wait the day and probably right about the 'Newbie' and rules. We should have booked the same cabin as last year, it was available when we booked, maybe the same steward would still be on that area. He was lovely, so helpful! No flights involved - that's how we got into cruising, my absolute phobia of flying! Many thanks,

    This is probably a stupid question but I could be wrong because on our first ever cruise last year we found that Cunard fall over themselves to help where they can. This is one of the reasons we've booked again. I know that if we booked a 'Grill' package we could choose which type of pillows we have but is it possible to just request a change in a normal balcony room? Last year we found that the pillows were too 'bouncy' and although you squashed them into shape by putting your head down, they still ran off when you moved. I'm used to a memory foam one, which is pretty firm and immovable so the problem is maybe just me! (Perhaps I should take my own?)
