  1. I use a nylon Roots crossbody if I'm on a tour that doesn't have a beach stop. Has lots of pockets and can hold a bottle of water. For the beach I carry a backpack also with several compartments and this doubles as my carry on piece. For evening a small wristlet holds my seapass and lipstick which always needs refreshing. This works out great for me. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Forums mobile app
  2. Lucky it was flip flops. I stupidly brought expensive sunglasses and someone stole them from my chair. I was also on the Caribbean princess. Lesson learned. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Forums mobile app

    Never ever buy EFFY jewerely

    I think the customer service on the ships is crap. I actually didn't buy a ring but they gave me a very hard sales pitch and I took off my own diamond and ruby ring to try theirs on then forgot to put mine back on and left store. Luckily a minute went by and I went back inside shop and my ring was gone. I raised quite a fuss and lady got scared and moved her cell and my ring landed on the floor. Well I learned my lesson. Staff could have cared less!!! Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Forums mobile app

    Some may find this useless but how about a travel wine aerator? I enjoy a glass of red on my balcony in the evening. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Forums mobile app

    I will look in Florida the day prior to cruise. Doubt our dollar store in Canada stocks them especially in winter months. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Forums mobile app

    My fold up fabric storage bin so I don't have to climb up on the bed to reach my things. It's lightweight and easy to pack. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Forums mobile app

    Where can I find beach towel chair clips in Miami? I live in a cold climate so hard to find at home. I can also use these on balcony to dry swimwear. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Forums mobile app

    Tip Porters?

    Great to know. Since I did not see docked under the various ports of call I thought perhaps we would use a tender. I am getting much stronger so hoping in 6 weeks I can manage a bit of walking unassisted but just being pro active. I will wear my boot for protection for all excursions.

    Tip Porters?

    Hi Gerardo. Celebrity has arranged a wheelchair at the pier for me which I can use onboard and for excursions. Just not sure exactly where to pick it up. When they said pick up at pier I assumed it would be at baggage drop off. BTW: Do you know if we tender in Curacao? It's the only port of call that doesn't specify if we are docked?

    Tip Porters?

    My friend and I will have a bag each but I may need a wheelchair at the pier as with my recent broken ankle may tire easily. How much of a tip is considered reasonable? Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Forums mobile app

    Purchasing wine near Dolphin Mall

    Thanks for all the tips. I arrive early morning next Saturday so most likely unable to check in until later in the day and thought it would be a good time to pick up some wine for my cabin and walk around the market. I am staying at Marriott biscayne bay with a 6 year old. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Forums mobile app

    Purchasing wine near Dolphin Mall

    Is there a wine store near bayside market place. I will be there pre cruise on January 20th and prefer not to pack in my suitcase. Sent from my SM-G930W8 using Forums mobile app
