  1. My best guess is that cruising might resume in 18 months, not before.
  2. We have avoided the buffet on our last 10 cruises on Celebrity for the reasons you list above. We book either AQ or a suite (when we can find a great price). Having breakfast in Blu, Luminae or room service, lunch in the Aqua Spa Cafe works for us. We would consider the buffet only when the tongs, spoons and other serving utensils are in the hands of the crew, not the passengers.
  3. I can't see booking anything for at least 12 months. We have a deposit on a December cruise on Celebrity and will transfer it to a cruise in 2021.
  4. Last fall Grab Mariner was available in the Ensemble Lounge.
  5. Gatordad, We have done both the Costal Cruise and Spencer's tour. On the Costal Cruise we did not stop at the beach between the Pitons, we just cruised nearby. Swimming was at another site. If you and the family enjoy catamaran cruises, this is a good value. Spencer's tour gave us a fun speed boat ride to the beach between the Pitons. Be aware that there are limited chairs available. We just tossed down a towel on the beach in front of the $$$ resort and enjoyed the water. We had a good time.
  6. We are in total agreement with Lois. Great location. We will stay there pre and post for our upcoming cruise. Great pool area where you can watch the yachts and river traffic go by. Water Taxi stop next door. Hilton is a good choice if you want to be near all of the 17th Street restaurants (Kelly's Landng one of our favorites) and shopping (Publix, Total Wine).
  7. PALL just means you have the Premium Beverage Package. It does not indicate other perks such as OBC, gratuities, internet.
  8. Have done both Woodwind and Bonaire Cruisers (golf carts) while in Bonaire both were great choices. Aruba is always Eagle Beach. Curacao is a walk into town, cross the bridge, and shop, have lunch and a drink.
  9. Our experience as well. Skip the Rum Punch and try a "Bob Marley".
  10. We have been to Beach Limerz twice the past two year. We found it a relaxing place with good service and value. Both times we did the pay as you go option. Regarding the entry into the water, I do not remember it being a concern for us or we would not have returned for a second visit. We will be back in Antigua in late December and will either return or take a catamaran sail.
  11. We choose Hyatt Place when we want to be in the 17th Street area (Kelly's Landing one of our favorite pre-cruise restaurants) or Riverside Hotel when we want to be on Las Olas Avenue.
  12. Passengers in AQ class cabins are able to use the Persian Gardens section of the spa at no cost. Heated loungers, steam room, aroma therapy room, cold room (on Reflection, not sure about Edge and Apex).
  13. Having sailed in both AQ and Sky Suites, I have found these differences, many of which others have mentioned: Tables not as close together in Luminae In Luminae, the option to order anything off the MDR menu, on S class ships that is not the case in Blu. Breakfast options better (see above) in Luminae Embarkation lunch available in Luminae, not so in Blu. For us, no noticeable difference in service. If the price is right, we would consider sailing in a suite again, but we are very happy in AQ. I am one who really enjoys the Persian Gardens, and missed it when we were in the Sky Suites (yes, I know I coud have paid my way in).
  14. Another vote for ES. Publix and Total Wine are just out the back door and many good restaurants just blocks away. Kelly's Landing and Southport Raw Bar are two of our favorite pre-cruise places. Kelly's has great New England Style seafood and Southport has drink and food specials and great people watching as it always has a full compliment of locals eating and drinking there. I know there is a popular sports bar nearby the ES, not sure of the name, Duffy's maybe? There is a good ice cream spot across the street as well.
