  1. I have not read through all the posts but IMO the best dessert by far is the Carrot Cake at Café Bacio (it is free, but the coffees are not). Anything at Café Bacio is good and I found myself often skipping dessert in the MDR in lieu of going there after dinner. Note, it seems the Carrot cake is only available one time a week. If I had known that, I would have wrapped several pieces and kept them in my fridge. Ironically, I typically don't care for carrot cake 😋 Mimbecky
  2. Sounds great. About how long does Royston take you out? Thanks M
  3. Well we leave in a few hours so I probably couldn’t do that. Too bad because I have a nephew from Argentina. Glad to hear that he is a great CD thanks
  4. We board the Constellation soon after you out of Venice on May 31st so I enjoy reading any info about ship, staff, shows and/or food etc. Thanks M
  5. We would not have been at a starting bid on any of them and thought the current bids were already outlandish. M
  6. Oh well, bummer. The Constellation has it's bonuses too. 🙂 Thanks for your responses! M
  7. On our last Celebrity cruise, we had a coffee station mid ship on our deck. It was nice to run out early and get coffee even before breakfast. Does anyone know if there is such a station on the Constellation, and if so what deck? Thanks mimbecky
  8. We traveled May 2014. Being from Southern California I run a bit cold. I wore a packable light jacket in most of the ports (Amsterdam, Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen) but while it was cool it was nice. St. Petersburgh was very cold and rainy while Estonia was bitterly cold - even the Canadians complained. As far as the sea travel, the only time there was any rolling was coming out of Copenhagen back up to Amsterdam. I guess that is typical in that area. M
  9. Thank you for the info. They are both new to us so good to hear that you liked the CD. Hopefully he will stay for another month 😍
  10. Doesn't anyone have information on who is on board for the Constellation? We sail at the end of this month and have been checking on here for quite awhile! Please advise if you know anything especially regarding Captain and CD. Thanks. M
  11. I really don't have an answer to your questions but given you have no responses, I thought I could give you a bit of information which may, or may not be helpful. You ask about day trips. I can tell you that where you port is very close to several sites within walking distance. You can visit the USS Midway which is a decommissioned Navy Vessel which has docents who lead tours. Seaport Village is an area of unique shops. The Star of India is an old historical ship which you can tour. There are a couple of others in the same area. (Berkeley?) There is a ferry that will take you from Broadway Pier over to Coronado Island. The ferry landing has some shops and across the street from the landing is "Tartine" which is a restaurant that I can recommend for lunch. Of course there is also Il Fornio or Peohes which are great and have fabulous views. You can Uber down from there (or take the bus along Orange ave) to the World Famous Hotel Del Coronado. Have a drink on the patio with ocean views or get lost in this historic hotel. If you are walkers, you could book a "Bite San Diego" tour of Coronado which will fill you up and give you some local history and lore of the Island. Good luck. Have fun Miriam
  12. 100% agree. One of my absolutely favorite tours in all of the British Isles. M
  13. I know 😪 On our next I will wear cocktail and probably still feel over dressed. M
  14. Ahhh, yes I have a few of those for overhead. Thanks.
  15. Dollar Tree? You are talking about the zippable ones? If so, I need to check this out.
