  1. Finally started to plan for our cruise 🙂After our cruise in Feb 2022 (🤞) we are going to the bahamas for a week. Just trying to decide whether to fly to/from Fort Lauderdale or Miami to Great Exuma . Our ship docks in Fort Lauderdale so easier to get to the airport to fly to the Bahamas post cruise ... but then our flight home goes from Miami so easier to be there after Bahamas . Does anyone have any experience of flying to Great Exhuma from either airport? Thanks
  2. We did our first ever cruise in Jan 2020... ( after 20 months of planning) came back in Feb 2020 having caught the Cruising bug ( travelling not covid!!!) and booked our second one for Feb 2022...then covid hit & I haven't done any planning and like you stopped reading the boards . In May 2020 I was at home bored and wrote my first & very detailed review of the Jan 2020 cruise & Post cruise trip ...you were one of the people who inspired me 😀 and you wrote some nice comments on my review . Welcome back , I am really looking forward to reading your reviews ...and I'm going to sta
  3. My stepdaughters arranged for flowers for my 50th birthday as a surprise. They were delivered 10 minutes after we arrived in our cabin , they were beautiful & lasted the whole 11 days of our cruise. They said they just contacted celebrity with our name, ship & sail date they didn't have our reservation number 🙂
  4. Did this in Jan 2020 2 large bottles of red wine between us - took 4 days to get it swapped for white ( after 3 trips to guest relations) Coke, diet Coke, tito vodka, water, lager, small bottles red & white wine, pringles ( were only replaced once) kind bars (were never replaced)Could only swap casino credit for play chips - husband couldn't use it to play in the texas holdem tournaments . During 11 days we had 2 different stewards - each time they didn't know about drinks & more & despite us explaining / showing info they still refused to accept mini bar was inclu
  5. I think it depends on individuals eating habits Generally we had early morning coffee & pastries , breakfast, snack for lunch and dinner. On excursion days we tended to have breakfast, afternoon tea( loved all the savoury pastries & cake choices !) , late dinner. One day we came back from our excursion , had afternoon tea..fell asleep & woke up at 10pm...thank goodness for late night pizza 🤣
  6. This package had just started when sailed Feb 2020. It might be better now but none of the crew seemed to know about it - It took us 3 days to start getting the fridge replenished, we got charged for items used which we has to go & sort out, we only got drinks replenished not snacks, we only got 2 bottles of wine not 4 and it took 4 days to get it changed from red to white ( no choice of wine.) Couldn't use the casino credit to participate in poker tournaments. We did enjoy the wine tasting and having soft drinks readily available but it was too much hassle so We won't bother with
  7. Great to see a positive thread. We were lucky enough to have a cruise ( our first cruise) in Jan this year and have another cruise booked for Feb 2022 so I'm hoping I can start planning soon 🤞 We aren the UK and this year we were also due to have a 10 day holiday/ music festival in Spain and 3 more weekend music festivals & a caravan holiday in the UK which were all cancelled. Instead we had a lovely week in a self catering cottage in Derbyshire in the UK and whilst there enjoyed the countryside & socially distanced visits with family. We have enjoyed spending lots of time i
  8. We sailed our first ever cruise aqua class on an S class ship at the beginning of the year. I loved breakfast in blu although my husband preferred the choice in the buffet. We both enjoyed dinner in blu & I liked the Persian gardens. We only upgraded because it was only $150 pp for 11 night cruise. We dont have anything to compare it with but we have booked aqua again for our 2022 cruise. This time on M class in one of the aft cabins with the large balconies. We will see if we enjoy it as much!
  9. Yes one of the aft facing Aqua cabins 😊
  10. We are on a carribean cruise on the millenium sailing 21/2/22 dont know if you are on the same one? Our first time in aft cabin.😊
  11. Thanks everyone. Started planning our trip 😊
  12. Thankyou everyone for your suggestions. We have Family near Fort Lauderdale so will prob spent a couple of days with them either post cruise before heading to the Keys or after the Keys before we head home. Husband is used to driving on the right when we hire a car when on holiday elsewhere in Europe. We visited around FL and Miami pre cruise this year (we were lucky to go in Jan before lockdown) so wanted to travel abit further afield next time. Thank you
  13. We have a cruise booked out of Fort Lauderdale in Feb 2022 and having a weeks holiday post cruise we were thinking about visiting Florida Keys - somewhere we have never been. We are from the UK and dont really know where to start. Should we visit one Key or several - what's the best way of getting to the Keys ( and back again for our flight home ) Any recommendations or suggestions appreciated. Thank you
  14. Hi Anita, I know I'm really late to the party here but just wanted to say a massive thankyou for your review. New to cruising we did our first ever cruise ( and I just wrote a review on it as there were no other new reviews to read ) in Jan on the Reflection to ABCs. We have our second cruise booked for Feb 2022 on the millenium. I was looking for Millenium reviews and came across yours & loved it. I loved your planning, I loved your story & your photos were amazing .Although on my bucket list I think reading your review has made me decide that Alaska isn't for us. Please dont tak
  15. Thankyou, brilliant loved reading about your cruise. Not got a cruise booked at the moment , but do have some spare time at the moment so may follow your lead and go on a 'cruise'myself 🤣🤣
