  1. Correct, they used to give up to two specialty dinners to all suites but that was eliminated when Luminae was created on all the ships. Some who had already booked were grandfathered. It is not longer a perk.
  2. I know Celebrity is going there next summer with the Summit....
  3. Twenty per person is more than twice what you would pay for a taxi or Uber.
  4. We did when we lived in Jersey, now we go to Scranton/Wilkes Barre to see the Railriders which is the Yankees top farm team. Really crowded when one of the big name Yankees is rehabbing.
  5. Best way to watch baseball and football on TV, put on TV video and local radio broadcast. We have great baseball 15 miles away this week, Little League World Series.
  6. Sure do, one of my best memories is going to see the Dodgers at Ebbets Field with my father. Also, last season they were in Brooklyn they were trying to help with attendance and actually played 8 regular season games in Roosevelt stadium in Jersey City. Went there also to see a game and years later took my drivers's test there.
  7. Solarium roof does not pull back, the room is air conditioned in hot weather. There are loads of places to sit in the son but not in the Solarium. Atrium can get crowded when they have entertainment there but people use the other decks for viewing.
  8. Going past the Statue is nothing new they have been doing it for several years now. It is not done on all cruise, depends on circumstances.
  9. Here's the press release From The Far East To The Eastern Caribbean: Celebrity Cruises Brings THE CELEBRITY REVOLUTION To Tampa Starting in October 2020, Celebrity Constellation will call the booming metropolitan city home MIAMI, Aug. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A revolutionary ship is coming to Port Tampa Bay, as Celebrity Cruises unveils a brand new homeport, expanding the brand's global vacation offerings with the redeployment of Celebrity Constellation. The newly "revolutionized" ship will offer guests more island time than ever before, with three unique alternating 10- and 11-night roundtrip sailings for the winter 2020 season. "Our guests and travel advisors have been asking us to return to Tampa since our last call there in 2007," said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO, Celebrity Cruises.

The city's downtown waterfront is currently being transformed through the $3 billion Water Street project. The 50-acre district will feature retail, offices, homes, hotels, culture and education. Transformation of Tampa's urban core was enhanced by the completion of the Tampa Riverwalk, an area now seeing hundreds of millions of dollars in private investments. In addition, historic Ybor's City's revitalization further adds to Tampa'suniqueness as a robust and desirable world-class destination. "We are very excited to welcome Celebrity Cruises to the Tampa Bay market. In 2020 Celebrity Cruises will offer a variety of itineraries from Tampa that will include stops at exotic locations in southern and eastern Caribbean. The addition of this premium brand to the explosive growth that Tampa Bay is experiencing will add an extraordinary adventure to the many choices vacationers have in Tampa Bay," said Port Tampa Bay President and CEO Paul Anderson. Following a leisurely 14-night Transatlantic crossing out of Barcelona, Celebrity Constellation will begin offering guests three unique itineraries, including a 10-night Eastern Caribbean escape, calling San Juan, Puerto Rico; Basseterre, St. Kitts & Nevis; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Samana, Dominican Republic; an 11-night Southern Caribbean trek with visits to Key West, Florida; Kralendijk, Bonaire; Oranjestad, Aruba; Willemstad, Curacao; and George Town, Grand Cayman; as well as a brand new 11-night "Touch Canal" itinerary, sailing to Cozumel, Mexico; Puerto Limon, Costa Rica; the Panama Canal; Colon, Panama; Cartagena, Colombia; and George Town, Grand Cayman. Celebrity Constellation is currently scheduled to undergo its "revolutionary" modernization in May 2020 as part of THE CELEBRITY REVOLUTION, Celebrity's $500 million investment in ship-wide upgrades and breathtaking reimagined spaces, taking the brand's fleet to the Edge.

  10. To me it looks like a small upside down version of the Golden Gate Bridge. It does serve different purposes though, a restaurant, bar entertainment area and a platform to launch the tenders.
  11. In some cases, Celebrity does not have a choice, the local authorities may require using locals.....
  12. Celebrity’s Edge has a platform that pretty much does what you dreamed. Does different things depending on what deck it’s moved to.
  13. Dress code is not addressed because as long as I can remember going back to the 90s it has been the same for children as adults. In reality, don't believe its enforced for younger children anymore like it used to be. I can't tell you how many times we rented tuxes for our son when he was 10 or 11 years old.
  14. Food much better on Celebrity, entertainment much better on NCL... As much as people complain about Nickel and Diming on Celebrity, doesn't compare to NCL> Celebrity has one big advantage over NCl and I speak from experience and that is their smoking policies. NCL in some areas felt like you were in a chimney...
