  1. We have recently returned from a Transatlantic on the Celebrity Reflection. We were very pleased with our full day tour with Spain Day Tours in Ibiza Spain . Our guide Shana was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about local geography and history. The tour was at a good pace that accommodated everyone's physical needs. Shana's English was excellent.Shana had a good understanding of the American sense of humor. We enjoyed many laughs as we toured the area. Our driver, transported us in a very safe manner. Our free time for lunch in Santa Eularia Des Riu was adequate to allow us to have an enjoyable lunch. Shana gave us some recommendations for restaurants for lunch with reasonable prices. We were back to the ship at the recommended time. We have taken many Spain Day Tours in the past while visiting Spain. They have always been excellent tours and we highly recommend your company to our travel friends
  2. We are watching the weather channel and hoping Dorian stays out to sea. We evacuated for 8 days last year with hurricane Florence. Luckily we had no damage, but some areas did not fare as well. There are people who still have blue tarps on their roofs. Thank you for your concern. Josko has responded quickly to our emails.
  3. Thank you NCMOM99 for your recommendation for a private tour guide in Split. We have contacted Josko and he replied quickly. We have his Total Split Tour scheduled for our port day of Oct.12, 2019. He has very positive reviews on Trip Advisor also. We are looking forward to a great tour. Again many thanks.
  4. We will be arriving on the Celebrity Constellation in Split on Oct. 12,2019. We usually obtain the local currency via ATM's. Does anyone know if there are easily accessible ATM's at the port of Split or nearby. We feel the need to have some "walking around Kuna's " for small purchases like a coffee etc. We prefer not to charge such small purchases. Thanks for your time in advance. Lynn & Leo
  5. Thank you for your advice. We have a guide book that will allow us to do an DIY tour of the Walls. The money we save we will spend on a "beverage by the sea". Many thanks
  6. We will be in Dubrovnik on Oct.13, 2019 from 9am to 9PM. I see a Viator tour given in English at 3:30 PM for 2 hours, walking the Wall. . Does anyone have any experience with choosing this time for the tour.? I read that the Walls can be very warm, so I am concerned about the 3:30 timing. The only other time is a 9:30 am tour, but we dock at 9 am and I am concerned we can not make the 9:30 am tour. Checking local weather, Oct temp range is 61-70. I would appreciate any advice from those who have visited Dubrovnik. Thank you for your time in advance
  7. Thanks to everyone who weighed in on this topic. This was our first encounter with being denied the ability to take a Celebrity tour due to age. Apparently this is not an unusual occurrence. I heard back from the Shorex Excursion team via e-mail today. Quoting the e-mail " Age restrictions are set by the tour operator and are determined by a number of factors including, but not limited to, the equipment used during the excursion, the exertion level of the tour activities, and the requirements of the operator’s insurance provider. Accordingly, our cruise line cannot override the restrictions put in place by any of our third-party tour vendors." Of interest to us, this excursion is listed as "moderate" on the shore excursion website. As suggested by many CC members, we will search out a similar tour via a private vendor. We tend not to use Celebrity Tours and prefer smaller private tours anyway. Many thanks for the varied opinions and thoughts.
  8. I attempted to book a shore excursion on line for an Oct. 2019 cruise on the Celebrity Constellation. After completing the information requested and went to the pay now tab, I was denied booking the tour because my husband and I are both over 70. Slightly over 70. I was not able to proceed to check out. I immediately called the Captain's Club to ask how this could be rectified Unfortunately the Captain's Club could not resolve the issue and directed me to send an email to ShoreX to see if this can be resolved. The Captain's Club customer service person was also surprised and needed to consult with a supervisor. I am still awaiting resolution. I am shocked and appalled that Celebrity would put an age limit on their tours. This tour consists of taking a bus, walking in town and notes that there are several steps up to the Fort. We are able bodied and fit and feel we can make our own decision regarding our ability to do this tour. This tour indicates no one under 4 and no one over 70. I can completely understand the under 4 restriction. Has anyone else encountered this age restriction issue? How did your resolve it.?
