  1. A friend who is considering a west-bound transatlantic cruise on an S-Class ship has asked me to post a question. He understands that traveling west-bound, a port-side cabin will get more sun. While he doesn't want to roast, he doesn't want total shade all day! The question: Will a starboard-side cabin get any sun at all?

     

    My husband and I have sailed in port-side cabins on our two west-bound TAs, specifically for the sun in the afternoon, so we can't answer our friend's question. Any input would be greatly appreciated!!!

  2. I am being offered the CLASSIC beverage package as an incentive for booking with Celebrity. But this only covers drinks up to $8.00. I just got off Royal Caribbean and most of their drinks were over $8.00. If you recently sailed Celebrity, can you tell me what drinks are offered for less than $8.00???? thanks, John

     

    I found this posting of menus from Silhouette to be the most helpful; the post was dated March, 2013. We are considering the same perk. Here is the link; I actually saved the page to my favorites. Hope it helps (and thanks to the original poster :):)):

  3. I'm with those that carry a small wristlet to carry my omnipresent camera, seapass, lipstick, pen/pad and a few business cards! :D

     

    I recently had to wear a lanyard for a business conference; my boss gave me a swanky multi-colored blue rhinestone version from Bed Bath & Beyond ~ while it matched my suit and I was told it looked great, I found it a bit cumbersome. :rolleyes:

  6. I was very disappointed with storage in the cabin. Very few drawers and the ones they did have were small. Also the closet was very awkward to access. I dont know what they were thinking. We have been on more than 7 different ships and this cabin had the least storage; I had to put most of my stuff including play clothes on hangers doubled and tripled. This was an 11 day cruise; it might have been okay for 7 days. We were 2 in the cabin. I dont know how a third would have managed.

     

    We (2 adults) were on the November 5th Equinox 14-night Transatlantic with 4 huge suitcases and found the storage to be adequate. Maybe you didn't find all the drawers and cabinets!?!?
