  1. Yes - Silver Whisper docks an San Basilio, which has a vaporetto stop very close to the terminal building. Silver Whisper will be docked close by. The Alilaguna blue line takes you from Marco Polo airport to the regular cruise terminal (Marittima). From there you can take the #2 vaporetto to San Basilio. Or take the ATVO busses from the airport to Piazzale Roma and then the #2 vaporetto to San Basilio. The bus transit time is much shorter than the Alilaguna.
  2. The September 6 Whisper cruise embarks at San Basilio, so it seems likely that yours will as well. This page has a good description of how to get from Santa Lucia to San Basilio: https://cruisemaven.com/venice-train-station-san-basilio-cruise-terminal/
  3. No - this service is provided by the Port of Seattle, so Celebrity does not charge for it. You must still pay for any baggage check fees imposed by the airline, though. These charges, if any, are billed to your onboard account.
  4. Yes - just did last Friday - worked perfectly. Put our bags out the night before disembarkation like normal, and didn't see them again until we picked them up at our home airport. The process is simple - fill out a form with your reservation info (provided a few days before the end of the cruise). Then the day before disembarkation, you get boarding passes and special luggage tags. Beware that security in Seattle can be really slow, unless you have TSAPre, which has a dedicated checkpoint (#4).
  5. +1 on the Intercontinental - great view of the Port of Miami (if on the bay side). The restaurant at the hotel (Toro Toro) is quite good too. Other places to eat/shop at Bayfront Park. 10-minute taxi to the port.
  6. Celebrity does offer this service in Miami for the Equinox. It's called "Luggage Valet" - a quick search here will find many threads regarding this service. It's awesome.....
  7. Keep the ship in good shape for us. We are on next week. I’m particularly interested in anything about Luminae, Michaels Club and the suites and related staff.
  8. Yes. the forms have a field to indicate that you do not need to pay for luggage -either via status, credit card perk, first class ticket, etc.
  9. I’m a long time Celebrity cruiser (Elite CC member), but can’t seem to remember which restaurants are open for lunch on port days and sea days. I know pretty much everything is open for dinner and that Blu is never open for lunch. I also know the Luminae and MDR are open on sea days for lunch and on embarkation day for suite and CC cabin guests respectively. OCV is a don’t care as we never eat there. What about the others? Tuscan Grill, Silk Harvest, Sushi on 5, Murano, Spa cafe? We’re sailing on the Solstice to Alaska in May in a suite if that makes any difference....
