  1. I always wear a mask in public but I would not cruise if I had to wear one. The biggest issue is that my husband and I enjoy eating in the MDR with "strangers". It is a big part of our cruising journey. I assume with out a vaccine, this wouldn't be possible so I plan to cancel my two cruises next year if things aren't at that level yet. M
  2. We stayed at Hotel Navona last time. Very nice people. Hotel is very modern with a ton of nooks and crannies to store things. My recollection is that they don't have any hot items for breakfast. M
  3. Cruise Kiitty, I am with you. I am 63 just short of 65. Retired and healthy. I do volunteer at Navy/Marine Relief and USO but for the most part am not front line or essential by any means. I think I am in the last phase- apparently even after children!!! I have a cruise scheduled end of May. I have my hopes up but won't travel without a vaccine. I need to have final payment by mid February so may end up ditching it unless they have a definitely time line out which appears unlikely. M
  4. From what I understand, Celebrity has an app that you can use to keep in touch with others on the ship without wifi. Does Holland (Oosterdam) have same? Thanks
  5. Enjoying your blog. I see that you took a taxi in PV. How much should we estimate this to be? Will they take American money? It has been A LONG time since we have been to Mexico (other than TJ). Thanks. M
  6. Dumb question but if they are "unannounced", how do you find out about them.....?
  7. Say what? Happy hour, second drink is $2? Does that mean if my husband orders a drink, then mine is $2 or does that mean we would each have to order two drinks....?
  8. I am sure that my answers are somewhere in this post but scrolling through I don’t automatically see them so I thought I would just ask them all here. 1. On a seven night cruise is there a formal night? 2. I know there is something similar to Celebrity’s Café Bacio onboard but I cannot find out if the coffee and/or pastries are for a fee. We will not have a drink card. 3. I am reading that we can bring wine, soda and water on. Then I just read about a corkage fee. Can’t we just bring our own opener? 4. Anything on the Oosterdam that we must not miss? thanks!
  9. 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
  10. Sounds great. About how long does Royston take you out? Thanks M
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. We would not have been at a starting bid on any of them and thought the current bids were already outlandish. M
  14. Oh well, bummer. The Constellation has it's bonuses too. 🙂 Thanks for your responses! M
  15. 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
  16. 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
