  1. Yes. We were in cabin 7223 and we could smell smoke occasionally while out on the balcony. Our next cruise we booked the starboard side to avoid the smoke. Cheers!
  2. I have often wondered about this as we live in Victoria BC which is a port for the Alaska Cruises. Can we leave the ship as we are “home” rather than go on to Vancouver or Seattle? Cheers!
  3. lol 😆 didn’t think of that. Unless you have a sparkly lanyard to put your sea pass in. Better than the floor or garbage can. Cheers!
  4. When we cruise I usually bring along some magnetic hooks for the cabin. These generally hold 10 lbs or so. Slip one of these in your purse and you have your own personal hook for the metal stall doors. Then you will know for sure your bag will fit it. Just a thought. Cheers!
  5. I am MLife and one of the perks is access to the departure lounge. What and where is this? Cheers!
  6. We will be on a cruise this winter and we are thinking of booking another cruise on board for the fall 2019. Can we also book for another couple who will be joining us, and will they have the same future cruise perks as we get?:) :) Cheers!
  7. We have a day to kill in Miami after returning from our cruise, what rental companies have shuttles from POM to the airport to pick up rental car? We will drop off the rental at FLL for our flight that evening. Cheers!
  8. Cruise Raider :):p I should clarify...we go at least twice or 3 times a year to Vegas if I can talk Mr. HooKares into it. :D Also we have twinned our accounts so it all goes into my account. This helps when you are a low roller in Vegas! Cheers!
  9. I am Gold on MLife and it doesn't require heavy gambling to achieve gold. I am considered a " low roller". :halo: All spending in MGM hotels including hotel room cost is counted as points. Just make sure that your MLife card is presented at check in. If you reach a status level on MLife, on Oct 1 your points reset to zero, but you retain your level for 1 year, so you will be fine on this cruise...make sure you take your MLife card with you. We received a couple perks such as priority boarding and a nice dinner in a specialty restaurant. Thanks to MGM and Celebrity. :) Cheers!
  10. I was on this cruise and saw a middle age "kid" turned away from the MDR as he was wearing shorts. So maybe the OPs kid was accepted as he was only a small boy? Also saw a women in capri yoga pants, flip flops and a baggy t-shirt one night in the MDR. Not sure what category she fell into but she look like she just left the rumba class. Too each its own I suppose. Cheers!
  11. Does anyone know what the current charge is to bring your own wine to the MDR or specialty restaurant?
  12. Thanks! The connecting flight is a partner of Alaska, so I will confirm with Celebrity before we sign up. Cheers!
  13. We are from Canada but we are travelling domestic from FLL to Seattle on Alaska, then on to a connecting flight to Canada. Would we be able to use the luggage valet? Cheers!
  14. I suppose it depends on how many cubes are in your cocktail, and how fast you drink. :D :) Cheers!
  15. I have done both trips and I would recommend that you go to Alaska. The ice is melting and won't be there forever, where as the Panama Canal has not changed since it was built. :) Also Hal is a great choice for Alaska. Enjoy whatever you choose! :) Cheers!
  16. No, it's not you. Today it has been down for a couple hours so far... :( Cheers!
  17. We have been looking at an eastern Caribbean cruise on the Equinox. Weather wise, we are bouncing between February, March or April? We live on the West coast, so getting away from “winter” is not a concern although getting away from the rain is. :D Thoughts? Cheers!
  18. Thanks for the replies... I will either look at booking the C class or tour the Spa before I commit. And for those lurking at the door, then sliding in? :confused: :( I guess they can't afford it... :D
  19. Does anyone know if it is available and if so how much would a 10 day pass be to use the Canyon Ranch private Spa Terrace on the Riviera? Cheers!
  20. Well...glad that's settled. Congrats to the OP on the great upgrade and Cheers! :D
  21. I don’t comment/post much on CC but…Wow, some people must of got out of bed the wrong way today… The OP was only asking about getting a refund on an beverage package that they pre-paid for and due to an unexpected upgrade this beverage package now becomes “free” with their upgrade…. Why wouldn’t he/she expect a refund? They paid for it? Again…Wow with some of the snarky responses… :( Cheers!
  22. That's how I read it...but I will wait a while to ask the questions as it is very new and we all know how long it takes for info to filter down. I am also going to Vegas in Sept, so hopefully I can exchange my Gold MLife for "some" of the perks of Elite. :D
  23. So... how does this work if you are Gold with MLife? We have already booked our second cruise with Celebrity next spring? How do we change our status to Elite? :) Cheers!
  24. It looks like M Life card holders are being offered some benefits to entice them to book a holiday with Celebrity. This was on MLife FB page… :) “Announcing our newest partnership with Celebrity Cruises that will bring more access and rewards to M life members! Members may receive exclusive onboard benefits based on tier! For more information>> http://mlife.lv/1eIb1C3 Cheers!
  25. Sometimes I wish Cruise Critic had a "like" button.
