  1. That’s great to hear, we were the opposite to you were on Reflection b2b in September and ate in the buffet most nights because food in MDR was poor. on Infinity in two weeks again a b2b hopefully the food as improved on all the ships.
  2. Thanks, will have a look to book onboard
  3. Sorry I know this comes up time and time again, Just wondering what the booking on board perks are at the moment.We cruise in two weeks and looking to book a future cruise,Will be booking with Celebrity UK if that makes a difference.Anyone know the current offers? Thanks in advance,Dianne
  4. That’s great, I have 5 booked this year! Think it’s a good idea and hopefully takes a bit of pressure off the attendant if they only do once a day.
  5. Thankyou for this very interesting review! In the Autumn we will have a cruise in the Med on Ascent not in a suite, followed by a cruise in Yachtclub on Seashore turn around day is in Barcelona.This will be our first MSC Cruises and our 40+ Celebrity cruise! So looking forward to experience these two ships.
  6. How many points per cruise? Thanks, Dianne
  7. We are on that one and the one before😀will be first time on Infinity though have sailed many times on Connie so expect it to be very similar
  8. The prices went down a lot after they had to change the itinerary, unfortunately we booked in the Uk and ages ago so paid quite a lot for the b2b.I asked if there was anything they could do but travel agent (first time using them) said no! Was talked into doing these cruises as a package with the flights and hotel etc. will go back to doing my own airfare and hotel bookings in future I would of saved well over a thousand pounds.Will not be using this travel company again.
  9. Have enjoyed both itineraries and visited all the ports many times.Sailed both ships a number of times, not been on Silhouette since the makeover though.Loved staying overnight in Istanbul and have visited the city for short stays it is one of the places I would always recommend.Equinox we will be on in June from Barcelona to Rome then back to Barcelona ( b2b) One of our favourite Celebrity ships and personally we always love visiting Malta.Will be cruising from Athens soon to the Greek Islands it will be the first time we have embarked from there so a bit different, but will give us chance to see more of Athens before the cruise.Think both cruises sound great, enjoy whichever you pick.Extra day would decide it for me so option2
  10. 😂😂fat finger should be 2024 lol
  11. Elite plus on Celebrity now matches with Gold need to do my Husbands as well not cruising with MSC until October 2924
  12. Did Oceania in June for the first time, after my last Celebrity cruise in September on Reflection.Have to say the food was a step above and the free good coffee and soft drinks were very nice.But didn’t book another while on board as ship was too small and I can cruise two Celebrity cruises for less than 1 Oceania.Think we need to have value for money.
  13. We did a Reflection b2b in September 2022 and had a brilliant cruise, so much so we booked almost the same b2b for September 2023! This was our 34th Celebrity cruise. What a difference, the MDR food was very limited and poor, we ate in the buffet and the pay for restaurants most nights. Have 5 Celebrity cruises booked next year booked ages ago.Hope they have changed those menus.We have been trying other brands and will continue to do so,
  14. Have a great trip, will be following with interest. We are doing a side by side in September/ October 2024 12nts Accent then 7nts Yacht club on Seaview, Celebrity Accent will be our 34th Celebrity cruise but the Seaview will be our first MSC.
  15. We stayed in you me design place hotel a modern 4 star was easy to find and 10 mins from the ship, Nice breakfast but our room was noisy from the street, we had the window open a wee bit because the room was very hot! ( They tend to knock the air conditioning off in November) but it was 24degrees in the room and the window had been taped shut so we had to get them to take the tape off and it seems the window was broken and wouldn’t shut lol.There was a beautiful building near by that was an Hilton at doubletree think I would have a look at that if we return.
  16. Haven’t actually tried that journey.But the bus is worth pricing.We only stayed one night in Trieste it was a lovely place with beautiful architecture and plenty of options for food and drinks.I would stay there again, The train was booked on train line AP and was just under £20 for both of us.Was about an hour and a half to Mestre.We have been to Venice lots and have stayed in the Mestre district 4 times it’s a short trip to the airport by taxi or bus.I would price the bus direct from Marco Polo if I was you! Happy cruising.Dianne
  17. There’s a good train sevicefrom Venice Mestre station to Trieste Central then just a 15 minute walk along the front to the ship, I booked the train through train line and it was very comfortable and inexpensive.
  18. It’s not easy, but I do like to do our own trips so flight hotels and cruise all separate while able but we have been caught out a couple of times, the flights are the problem I always find!
  19. We will be in the Med around then on Celebrity,B2B love a Med cruise in June😊
  20. Yes we were flying from Manchester, the train from Trieste is around 2hrs if on time ours to Venice was about 20 mins late so a bit of a gamble for a lunch time flight! Even by car it would be a good hour or two depending on traffic.When do you cruise?
  21. Yea we usually stay before the cruise and fly straight home! If you can get off in the first bunch as soon as possible, and have a taxi waiting maybe it will work, We thought we wouldn’t rush off so waited to 8am to get off but so did a lot of other guys😂Enjoy your cruise!
  22. Hi, we left the Dawn yesterday in Trieste fortunately we were staying in the region and Venice for 3 days post cruise.We have never experienced the like of slow disembarking, and it took us 95 mins to get off we were stuck in a corridor on deck 4 with hundreds of others, people were complaining of the lack of air and not pleasant at all.We we’re self embarking so didn’t have to pick our luggage up at the terminal but that looked badly organised.Dianne
  23. thankyou for your information it’s very useful!
