  1. Thankyou so much for your kind replies . Guessing we should take your advice and try the roll call for some like minded newbies to the far east!
  2. I have had free drinks in the past but only at the specified captains club venue,I didint know you could go to the general bars around the ship ! Do you just show your card to the barman?
  3. Wondered if anyone has done the 14 night Eclipse cruise going to Singapore,Thailand and Vietnam? Just booked for my big birthday next year, going in November 2020 . Would be great if anyone could comment on any of these destinations and also could give any advice about excursions or visas etc... Not sure if any of the destinations are ok for going it alone without booking guides and maybe there are some stops you can go to town on you own by bus from the harbour ? Any information much appreciated !
  4. Thanks everyone for your comments . Guess Ill have to wait see what the formal nights are and any other themes . Guessing we are going to enjoy a bit more chat with our fellow Brits than on Celebrity . Are the excursions for Norway expensive?
  5. Hi We have just booked on IONA for June 2020. Having only ever sailed with Celebrity I wondered if some cruisers can point out what I might notice is different . I believe some ships have laundry onboard ,will Iona I have also been reading about Black and white nights and tropical nights ,are they on all the cruises or just the Caribbean routes? Any information and tips appreciated .
  6. Have a couple of questions hopefully someone will know the answers . Which side of the ship should I choose my cabin for ultimate sunshine on the Constellation Singapore to Dubai cruise ? Also,does anyone know if Elite members can ask to get an upgrade from Concierge C2 up to a C1when booking ,or do you wait until you're booked. How do these elite upgrades work? .
  7. Hi Has anyone been on this itinerary and can offer some tips about excursions and making your own way onshore ? Have been considering this cruise for our retirement treat in March 2010 and would appreciate any advice .
  8. Anyone know if its likely that the cruise I am interested in is likely to have a free drink package later on in the year ? Thinking about cruise on Millennium to Hong Kong,singapore etc in feb 2020. Should I wait see before booking ? Any advice re this would be appreciated . Hobgob
  9. Hi Im normally a Celebrity cruiser and thought I might consider a change . How do drinks prices and packages compare with Celebrity ? Are there much differences in quality with maybe Konigsdam and Eclipe ?
  10. Hi Ive only ever cruised with celebrity (have been on about 6 cruises in total )and am looking for a change . Would anyone be able to comment on similarities in this ship and say Equinox if any? Also,comparison in costs for excursions e.g. in Caribbean area ? Normally book a balcony room and dine in speciality dining room . Would like to try something different but still want some refinement ! Thanks
