  1. We are considering purchasing a couple of drink cards prior to sailing on Holland America this month. If we do and for some reason we are unable to go on the cruise (ie family illness) will Holland refund these? Has anyone had any experience with this potential situation?
  2. We are going to take taxi to the Marriott in St Kitts. Does anyone know if you can use the beach and/or pool at the hotel? Is there a charge to do so? Is the casino an area that is freely open to the public or do you need to be a hotel guest.
  3. We are sailing on the Konningsdam in November and have received an invitation for a Club Orange upgrade (for a price). Has anyone done this and if so is it worth the extra money
  4. We are going to be in St Kitts in November. Have heard that there is a very nice Marriott hotel there that we would like to visit. Has anyone taken a taxi from the cruise dock to the Marriott? Is it a long distance away and does anyone have an idea of the cost for 4 people? Just as important is it safe to take a taxi in St Kitts

  6. We are sailing on the Konningsdam and will be going to Barbados. We would like to go to a beach. Can anyone recommend a really good beach? Did you get to the beach on a Holland tour or did you do it on your own? Can you give me an idea what it would cost to get there by taxi
  7. Doing southern Caribbean in November. All ports are familiar to us with the exception of Martinique. Are there any do's and don'ts that we should be aware of. Can we use US dollars to pay for things while we are on the island? Any other tips that might help us.
  8. We are doing a southern Caribbean cruise in April and will be stopping at Cartegena Colombia. Generally we don't purchase tours but get off the ship and get a tour on shore from locals or take a taxi into town. We understand the Old Town there is interesting. Is doing it on your own safe here? Any suggestions about this port would be really appreciated.
  9. We are sailing with Celebrity on April 1st an received an email offer for a precruise booking of a drink package with a 20% reduction and billed in Canadian dollars which is great for us. Has anyone had this offer in the past and can tell me if the 18% gratuity is included in the per day price. Have called Celebrity twice and got a yes one time and a no the next. Any info will be appreciated.
  10. Have been looking around Cruise Critic to see if you are able to bring onboard water when you checkin.? I know that you can purchase same on Celebrity site but when we cruised other lines we would take a few bottles of water and Diet Pepsi when we embarked the ship. Generally cruise lines don't have Diet Pepsi and I can't drink Coke products so take a few bottles with me. Then we are in port we will buy a couple H20 and pop to bring back with us. Any info will be appreciated.
  11. Sailing on Celebrity in April in the Caribbean. When we get on Board can we have lunch anywhere other than the Lido Resturant. I find that the Lido's are always crazy and creates such a hectic environment that it is hard to relax and enjoy that first meal onboard. When we sail on Princess they have one of the dining rooms open for lunch on Embarkation day and it really starts the cruise off in such a relaxing way. Anyone know anything about alternates on Celebrity? Thanks
  12. We are doing the transatlantic cruise this spring on the Silouette. I think I remember receiving an email from Celebrity saying that they have changed the Elite cocktail party in some way, thought I can't for the life of me find the email and the Captains Club site doesn't seem to show anything different. Can anyone explain the new approach to me? Do they still have the party in the lounge and do you receive unlimited cocktails as well as canapes? As well as the cocktails there from 5 to 7 are there also drinks loaded to your cruise card that you can use other places? That is how RCL does it if I am correct. Could you use te drinks on your card at dinner in the dining room? Thanks
