  1. FYI - saw this on Facebook just now: Due to continued port closures and global travel restrictions, as well as to help ensure the continued safety of our guests and crew, we are temporarily suspending all cruising operations globally beginning tomorrow, March 15th, and plan to resume sailing again on Saturday, April 11.
  2. Hello! We are currently on the eclipse and here is a schedule of activities for the kids so you can get an idea of the type of scheduled activities they offer at the kids club. There are also family activities listed in the daily schedule everyday, ranging from Amazing Race to dodgeball games. You will have sunny weather so you can enjoy the outdoor pool and the outside decks 🙂
  3. Do you take insulin? If yes, I suggest calling the special needs department to request a medical fridge. The mini fridge in the rooms are usually not cold enough.
  4. I suggest calling the special needs department after you submit the form to confirm. When I called, they were able to add all dietary requirements while I was on the phone with them and put in a request for a medical refrigerator (for insulin) right away. We ate most of our meals in the MDR with our toddler and never felt like other passengers didn’t want us there. Mind you, we are lucky enough to have a toddler who sits through a 2 hour meal without much fuss.... we always asked for things we knew he would normally eat at home: steamed broccoli, cucumbers, plain rice, spaghetti no

  6. One thing you can consider is booking the oceanview room that is connected to the family veranda. That way, you will essentially have 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms! I don't know how far in advance you would have to book to guarantee that you can get this arrangement though...
  7. Thanks everyone! I will take a photo of what worked best and post when we return :)
  8. My toddler likes to do 360 degree turns in his sleep! He will definitely fall off the bed if we don't have barriers... Any creative solutions you have used to prevent your child from rolling off the bed on the ship? We are on the ship for 22 nights so co-sleeping is not ideal... I would hate to come back home and have him back in bed with us!
  9. I remember that I found the almond milk and soy milk by the cereal station but can't recall if there was also lactose free milk... I wonder if you may be able to request it through the special needs department before the cruise? I should have also clarified that I THINK the tetra packs of milk were just regular milk... I do remember that the brand and type of milk changed part way through the cruise so maybe each ship has different supply onboard depending on where they are stocking up!
  10. During breakfast, they also had soy milk, almond milk, and milk in tetra packs (juice box size) in the buffet for free
  11. Hello! If you happen to take the elevator up to the Kids Club area, can you let me know if they have a toddler drop in area? They had one on the Solstice, but I'm not sure if it is on every ship. Thank you!
  12. Thanks everyone! I will definitely write “cold water only” on the bag and hope that it prevents any possible mishaps!
  13. How is the quality of laundry services on the ships? I am assuming that there will most likely be a "fill a bag" laundry special on our 12 nights/10 nights B2B cruise. Did any of the things you sent to be washed come back not in the same condition? IE. Did it shrink? Turn pink? Items go missing/mixed up? Please share your experiences and suggestions! I can't risk any of my clothes shrinking because I'm assuming after the first cruise everything will already be tighter for the second one LOL!
  14. For me, I think a perfect cruise vacation would be to spend a week on an Oasis Class ship and then a week on a Celebrity ship. I LOVED all the activities and bells and whistles on the Allure, but I got off the ship feeling like I needed another vacation to recover! If I could have tagged on a laid back quieter vacation on a Celebrity ship afterwards, it would have been a perfect balanced cruise vacation :)
  15. I'm sorry, I didn't realize I should have kept a list of names of all the passengers who came up to my husband and I to compliment us on our well behaved 2 year old. I guess all the smiles and waves we received from passengers and staff were not indicative of their feelings toward our son. I find it interesting that a majority of families who have sailed on Celebrity have experienced nothing but positive feedback from passengers and staff, yet on CC, there are a lot of people who are proclaiming that they will leave Celebrity if they continue on with promotions that will encourage
  16. I'm sorry, but I don't understand your need to point out that the parents were "Asian"
  17. I just want to counter balance the other post and let first time Celebrity cruisers with kids know that it is a very small group of cruisers who seem to not like children on the ships. Please remember that only a VERY small number of people who will be on your cruise are actually on Cruise Critic! We have been on two Celebrity cruises with our toddler and he has been well loved by staff and other cruisers. We will continue sailing with Celebrity because we love the ships, food, and the amazing staff. I hope other families who have traveled with their kids on Celebrity w
  18. My sister booked the lowest balcony category and got a sunset veranada assigned! Not sure exactly when it was assigned because she only found out when she logged in one day. It was roughly 50 days before sailing.
  19. At that price, I think it would be worth it for the extra points and if it is in a better location
  20. We did the Hawaii cruise on the Solstice last April with our toddler! We brought our own life jacket for the beaches. In Lahaina, we went to Baby Beach and Lahaina Beach. You can get directions on Google Maps. I suggest Baby Beach because it is very shallow and no waves. It was about a 15-20 min walk, so I suggest you bring your stroller! There weren't any facilities on the beach. I think it was Lahaina Beach that we went to on the second day... it was rockier and lots of waves.
  21. The 4 perks are included with the SS, which makes it a better deal than the FV when looking at it from a financial perspective. Only downside is the fact that we won't have separate rooms. I'm glad to hear that the suite is a lot larger than a regular cabin because we will be traveling with a car seat and a stroller and I know it will be VERY tight in a regular size cabin!
  22. Here is my dilemma: we are cruising with our DS who is 3 years old and currently booked in a concierge cabin. A family veranda and a sky suite came available for a reasonable price, so I'm trying to decide which room to change to! Family veranda is ideal because of the two separate bedrooms but I don't know when we will be cruising again so I would LOVE to experience the "suite life"... For those of you who have traveled with children or with 3 or more people in a sky suite: is it noticeably bigger than a regular balcony room? I'm wondering how much of the extra square footage is t
  23. Can someone who was on a recent sailing advise on the price they were offered? I think last year I paid $30 or $35... just trying to estimate how much OBC to purchase beforehand to cover specialty dining costs. Thanks!
  24. I was wondering if you can order multigrain rice or brown rice on board? If yes, which restaurants? Also, please share your favorite gluten free dishes on Celebrity! Thanks in advance.
  25. It is absolutely amazing!! We were lucky enough to book one on the Solstice last year 7 days before sailing for $900 more than a regular balcony. In my opinion, it was worth every penny. It was for DH, our 2 year old son and myself for a 12 nights Hawai’i cruise. Our son was still napping and going to bed early on some nights, so the ability to close the door to one of the bedrooms and still have a HUGE living room to hang out in was amazing. I believe it is bigger than a lot of the suites. The pictures did not do justice on how large the room actually was! Like a previous poster sa
