  1. To date thanks to everyone replying to my question. We've done few Celebrity cruises and wasn't sure if there was anything in the line of The Quest. granted, Celebrity is a little more upscale. Yeah we can do without the belly flop contest, and some of the RCI's audience / stage participation shows. Oh well, we're not sailing till October 2020. (Yes, davekathy, i am a drummer, DW Jazz Series 4 piece kit, Special Selection Zildjian's picked at the factory an hour from here, play professionally. Cool that's great, another fellow drummer as well!)
  2. So what's there to do for the "middle age" folks to do in the evening? Be careful with your answers now...😂
  3. I'll say ! thanks for the bad news davekathy...Hope that 'lights out' wont be 10:00pm ...
  4. As a seasoned cruiser on Royal most often enjoying The Quest that's held towards the end of the cruise on most if not all of their ships, brings to mind a question asking that if a similar type event is held on Celebrity ships. Thanks in advance to those who reply.
  5. Perhaps I might have missed the thread, but was there anything posted about the effects of hurricane Dorian at CocoCay or did it spare that location? Thanks in advance to all who reply.
  6. And so aren't we, it's so repetitive...and now all those 3 and 4 nighters designed with CocoCay in mind...ugh... I'm sure its a good stop but when they positioned "Indy" there as well doing the same when they could have put it to better use with all the attractions that are now standard on the 'bigger ships"...
  7. Notice with all the Southern Caribbean dates that were VERY appreciatively provided that Barbados isn't included utilizing a Freedom or Voyager class ship. I wonder if size matters or what other reason? Could it be..a larger class ship burns more fuel ? I noticed that the January 2020 out of Miami has already sold out of mid-ship balconies. So, "Havin'fun" I hope you'll be having fun ....
  8. A few years ago either a Freedom or Voyager class ship sailed from Florida on a nine night or more cruise to either a Southern or Deep Southern itinerary a couple of times during the year. We're not interested in leaving out of San Juan due to the high costs of flying from the northeast. A preliminary check for either of those two classes of ships has come up with NOTHING that I'm specifically looking for in 2020 and probably 2021 now. Anyone know more please let us all know. I realize that RCI has their focus on keeping their Oasis Class ships in position to stop at CocoCay and or doing Eastern and Western itineraries on short trips so that's not an option. Thanks in advance to those who reply.
  9. Interesting late2cruisin ! Now, when you say have some (passed hot and cold hors d'oeuvres) what do you mean by "some passed" Is this not what they're doing in the Sky Lounge for their elite and Elite + guests right now? Got to say, Royal did manage to put on a really nice spread for their members.
  10. Good point you brought up hcat that leads me to my next question. During the 5-7 free drinks in the Sky Lounge or wherever its held do they bring out a sampling of hot and cold hoer d'oeuvres such as what Royal does ? thanks in advance.
  11. Ok, I didn't locate one, that's why i wanted to double check with you from your post. Thanks for the reply.
  12. DaveKathy thanks for your input on my post. We've been away from Celebrity for quite a few years while concentrating on achieving D+ status on Royal. Now, some of Celebrity's deals are great if you know where to look for them. Now, if you would , where and what is the WCB bar?
  13. Thanks to everyone who has replied to my question so far. We're learning quite a lot of good information from all of you !
  14. A question that most Celebrity Elite and Elite+ members should be able to answer that have sailed after the refurbishment. Where is the location of the Captains Club Lounge for the Elite and Elite+ members to be able to sit and have beverages and "pickies" from 5:00-8:00pm. If, on a particular sailing and the Captains Club Lounge is full, do they use an overflow area or lounge similar to what Royal does on most of their ships? I know there's a daily three drink load on our sail cards, but would be interested in knowing if the Lounge is still available with the waitstaff as has been in past practice. Thanks in advance to those who reply !
  15. Thanks to everyone who provided photos and video links to how great looking the transformation on the Summit has now become. I have another question that most Elite and Elite+ members should be able to answer that have sailed after the refurbishment. Where is the location of the Captains Club Lounge for the Elite and Elite+ members to be able to sit and have beverages and "pickies" from 5:00-8:00pm.

  16. Thanks very much for providing your stateroom photos Ginnyfyr, They're terrific ! Especially where you said the balcony lounge were still being utilized. Which cabin is this, if you would? And thank you others who have contributed to replying to my post.
  17. Thank you all for your replies, much appreciated !
  18. Kartgv, a really good pictorial link you sent along, thanks. Here's another question for you and anyone else who's been on the Summit in any of the following Catagories after the renovations. Do Cats 2A, 2B ,2C, have the wooden chairs and boxes on their balconies ? If so are the traditional lounge chairs an option to ask your cabin steward? I didn't come across very much other than many Suite questions and photos.
  19. A couple of photos shows she really is looking great again. A couple of questions, were cabins given any sprucing up as well? I realize that deck 3 received new cabins #3115-3123. Does anyone have anything both pro and con to pass along about your recent experience with this ship, crew, menu, daily and nightly activity and anything else. All comments appreciated.
  20. Recently on board the Anthem at a talk a past passenger brought it up that RCI is returning to Montreal on their New England Canada runs. Anyone have any input on that, please let us all know.
  21. Thanks for your reply. We've been to Orient Beach many many times but have not been back since the devastating hurricane. Now, about the beach itself, if you've been there frequently you'd know, are most of the beach front concessions reopened that you could rent the lounge chairs and umbrellas? Before the storm, those places with bars and bathrooms were stretched out for over a mile towards Club Orient's direction. I read somewhere that the machine that was used to clean up the beach/seaweed was destroyed and going into the water, (if you had done that) was the water still clear and no sea weed permeating up through. Indeed the French side really took the brunt of it. Last year we took a shuttle boat just before you'd get to the stores and bars at the cruise ship docks, it took us to what they called downtown which was a 10 minute boat ride and a three minute walk to the beach front. The beach there was absolutely perfect with lounge chairs umbrellas and close to the public bathrooms. If anyone recalls the name please mention it.
  22. What was your impression of what you saw of Orient Beach itself? Some cruisers say not enough has been done to bring the beach back to how it was pre-hurricane with the many different areas to rent umbrellas and lounges. After the hurricane it wouldn't surprise me if a lot of the pristine sand was shifted exposing rocks and seaweed where people would normally want to walk in the water. Any others care to comment on your first hand observations, please do. We'll be there in October on the Adventure. Thanks in advance to all who reply.
  23. I see no reason why not, you should be on the road before 9:00am as well, it's very do-able even with enough time to turn in your rental. Go for it !
