  1. There's a thread on Princess discussing the same thing if you're interested... https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2632361-celebrity-versus-princess/#comments
  2. Interesting thread for me since my whole cruising history consists of a single Alaska cuisetour last month on the Coral. I'm still trying to thaw out from that.🤭 Have now booked a Celebrity Summit Caribbean cruise just because of the itinerary. My Coral cruise was nice, but not spectacular for a few reasons: 1-the weather, cold, overcast and rainy with the wildfire smoke making some of land portion difficult. Truly just bad luck and nothing anyone could do anything about. 2-Ate in the MDR (early seating) where I found most of the food was just "ok". Hot dishes served luke warm; beef dishes were low quality - gristly and had little taste; Alfredo noodles hard with little sauce; etc. Nothing really good or bad to say about the service. Will be doing Anytime-type on the Summit and hoping for better. 3-The shows - one of the reasons I'd booked Princess originally. The 2 that I saw, Bijou something and Encore were basically just back-to-back songs. So how is that different from Celebrity's shows? I'd expected Silk or Magic, but the only other show was a rock-review from a singer and that's not my genre. The Coral was nice & seemed to be the right size for us which prompted us to look for a similarly sized ship for the next cruise. We had a balcony cabin on the Coral which was fine size-wise for us; we'll have an inside on the Summit. Just a couple of points from my current readings on the Celebrity board related to earlier thread posts here: -The free in cabin movies are being brought back because of public uproar; don't know when or any other details. -The footstools are also supposed to be back in a couple of months again because of public uproar. Thoughts from a lowly, non-perked perspective.
  3. I received the email for the updated map. When I got the original email, the invitation was for editing. I looked quickly at what you had done, but was too spooked that not being a proficient Google maps user that I would accidently change something. So sorry you had a problem, but sad that my caution was valid.
  4. Thanks again. Now I see the reason for the cable comments - Fox, in particular, broadcasts, but is low powered on the west side of the island so no hope for OTA.
  5. Thanks. Couldn't do it on Princess last month.
  6. BnB just confirmed no access to cable and suggested a bar. Going to be tough for a 1 beer/night max geezer? 🤭 We'll be in OSJ near St. Germain Bistro - any suggestions? Meanwhile, I'll try to look for online viewing options...
  7. Know this is OT, but could you use the same technique to attach a computer hdmi output to the TV? We copy our camera recordings to a HDD backup on a laptop & would like to view those copies nightly.
  8. Thank you for confirming what I'd guessed.
  9. In my infinite wisdom, I booked our pre-cruise flight for Feb 2, not thinking about the Super Bowl. I'm not a fan, but hubby is. The bnb lists wifi & Netflix. Before asking the bnb owner, would the game be broadcast locally in English? Or should I plan on an alternative like a Firestick? Don't think I'd be successful in convincing him to watch Heidi...🤣
  10. Please add me as a receiver of your walking tour efforts: diane dot acap at mindspring dot com. Hubby is limited in walking distances without rest stops. I've read that OSJ has a lot of cobblestones and is mostly sloped which will take him more time. And as I understand, there are a number of steps at El Morro. We'll be taking a cane seat for rest breaks, but did you find in your research/experience the areas that will be the toughest for him so we can break the tour up into seqments? Sure hope the trolley will be operational in Feb.
  11. Just a quick thanks for all the help. Finished our 2 day stay and will be checking out today for the ship. So glad I listened to you about changing to the YWCA. It was perfect for us with a close HopOn-HopOff pickup. We did a LOT of HOHO trips. 😊 Hubby managed to walk the Chinese Garden and from the Rose Garden to the Totems at Stanley. Great time had here by both of us even though I'm not going to make it on the SkyTrain.
  12. Got it ok now. Thought it was just the 24 hr check-in stuff. Thanks, polmcs.
  13. I see the 6 char confirmation code in EZ, but can't find where to check seats on AA. All I'm seeing is Booking, Check in and Flight Status... Since I booked via EZ, I don't have an AA log-in. For Alaska Airlines, found my info under Manage Trip.
  14. Thanks for the info. Guess I need to contact Princess to get the ball rolling. So tough being a newbie. 🤣
  15. Like the OP, I used a TA for Aug cruise but booked air with EZ. Paid TA the total. Now when/how do I see seat assignments & get actual tickets? Don't see anything on the Personalizer.
