  1. Another vote for Dora. When we were in port at Cartagena there were several other cruise ships in port as well.....the traffic was horrible and everything was very crowded. Dora tried to hit the sights at times that wouldn't be so crowded with cruise tours and I think she did a great job. She took us to places that we wanted to go in addition to her regular tour and we found her to be extremely knowledgeable and personable. She was worth every penny!!
  2. Thanks for the suggestion to check with our TA. I'm checking with her to see what she can do. We are happy enough with the Concierge cabin but if we could upgrade for a good deal in a good location we would probably do it.
  3. That'a a really good point about not being able to choose the locatioin of the cabin on a move up offer. I noticed that some of the Celebrity Suites look like they are also under the pool or grill area. We had a Celebrity Suite on our last Celebrity Cruise and it was a disaster because it was under a grill with furniture (or carts) being moved throughout the day and night. Celebrity gave us a credit to use on a future cruise because of the unresolved noise issue which is why we are on this cruise so we can use our credit. The move up to the Celebrity Suite is $1300 which is the best value but we might be under the pool area.
  4. We just had a move up offer from our Concierge level cabin on our 12 night Infinity cruise. I checked the prices that are currently offered and it's interesting that the Veranda cabin is now more expensive than a Concierge cabin on their website. Our original price was lower than what is shown on the website and came with $375 Onboard Credit, Prepaid Gratuities and Beverage Package for Two. Now the minimum upgrade offer is $150pp for Aqua Class and $1000pp for a Sky Suite. When I look on the Celebrity Website the Aqua Class is $500 more than a Concierge and the Sky Suite is $1000 more than a Concierge. I'm trying to decide if either of these is a good deal.....Do they ever come down in price on the move up offers?
  5. We were with our Blexie guide for two days and we gave the driver about $20 for the two days and our guide about $50 for the two days. We felt like both our guide and driver did a great job and this worked out to a little over 20% of the cost of our tour which is what we usually tip our tour guides if they have done a great job.
