  1. Just used the app on my iPhone and it took maybe 5 minutes. Kind of neat as you scan your passport and then take your picture. Had email response in about 15 minutes.
  2. Thanks for the additional information. I have passed it along to the golfers in our group. It certainly looks like a beautiful place!
  3. Interesting seeing the possums. I have a full length fur coat that I've had for about 30 years made out of New Zealand possum!
  4. Thanks so much for the information! I'll pass it along.
  5. So are you saying Waitangi Golf is in Bay of Islands? Do they rent clubs for cruisers? Four of our group like to try and golf somewhere on a stop when we cruise.
  6. Can anyone recommend a service for transport to airport hotel? We are a group of 8 adults traveling together and would like to book something ahead of time that can accommodate all of us and our luggage. Disembarking Celebrity Solstice on a Saturday morning.
  7. I received an email from Celebrity last week about a time change for a port call on our Solstice cruise in February. We are booked through a TA.
  8. In January we just used a taxi van for 6 of us and all of our luggage. It was a 12 night cruise with 2 nights hotel precruise so it was a LOT of luggage.
  9. In January we were at the Port about 10:45 and they opened the doors about 11. Had my sparkling wine in hand and first one in the buffet by 11:20. ( They opened a few minutes early) I saw snorkeling equipment at shore excursions on a display but don't know if they were for sale or rent. We took our own. I had invested in the new full face mask and they are THE BEST THING I ever bought. So much easier and comfortable.
  10. The Concierge was Fransisco. As we are only Diamond we only had access to DL. . D+ Pinnacle and Suites had CL, not aware of any that were in the DL. We met and talked with many wonderful people in the lounge. Considering it was a short 5 night cruise it was very easy to enjoy conversation with the people you saw over and over again.
  11. On Vision of the Seas now our first night, last night all cards were checked and room numbers checked off a paper list.
  12. Instant update on The Key on Vision in Galveston. Arriving at port at 10:30 very few passengers through security and check in very fast. Key access didn’t get us anywhere faster due to few people. Up to waiting area. I asked and was told we would board after Pinnacle and Suites but announcement said differently. As we are Diamonds we were ready to go whichever was called first. And they did call Pinnacle, Suite,Diamond + and Diamond, so we went. Key fail! Boarded and took carryon to theatre which just took a minute. Then went to Chops and it was 11:10 and they said they would open at 11:30. We waited in the area and were the first to be seated about 11:25. There was never a line for seating. We loved the calm quiet atmosphere and the food was fantastic. Rooms ready at 1:00 and it’s now 1:30 and carry ons are here no other luggage if the key is supposed to help in that which I don’t read anywhere.
  13. Yes we did stop in St Kitts so that must have been it. Thanks
  14. My personal observation on the paper straws is that halfway through my daily afternoon Mudslide, the straw was a slimy mushy yuck. Not good at all.
