  1. We cruised from FLL back in March and I did the same exact thing, booked the early flight because the next non-stop wasn’t until hours later. Quickly regretted it as all I did was fret over if we would make the flight and I didn’t want that stress the last few days of our vacation. We were on Southwest so changing was simple. I checked out flights from West Palm Beach and was able to switch to a 2pm non stop back home. It’s less then an hours drive to WP and being a smaller airport so much more convienent. We hired a car service to pick us up at the cruise port and it was well worth it! If this is an option that might work for you, I would definitely check it out. Also would look into flights from Miami. I know I would rather spend a few extra bucks to have peace of mind knowing that I won’t miss my flight home and also not have it take me hours to get home with stop-overs for a 3 hr non stop trip.
  2. First off, If you have read the endless threads on dress codes, many people say that Celebrity’s relaxed dress code is a welcome change with one of the many reasons being the cost and restrictions of luggage. Since we usually sail in the PH, the cost to fly is irrelevant to us, but it sure is nice not to have to take an extra suitcase or two just for formalwear. To assume that I “don’t want to dress for dinner” is ridiculous! My family and I dress very well for dinner, without the need for jackets and formalwear.
  3. We have dined in Luminae on our last 4 cruises and very rarely saw men in jackets. A few did wear them on evening chic nights, but they are not required and I did not pack any for my husband and son. With luggage weight restrictions and baggage charges when flying it is a win-win to not have to bring along any type of extra formal wear. The above comment that many men choose to wear them certainly was not the case on any of my cruises.
  4. Dined in Luminae on the Summit, which is a M-class ship and also on the Silhouette, which is a S-class ship and was always given the MDR menu when I was seated. Great options to be able to use both menus.
  5. Quite an assumption by you! My son was trained by 18 mos old as were both of my sisters children.
  6. That is not true! Toddlers are allowed in the outdoor pools, but as mentioned, must be toilet trained, as swim diapers are not permitted in the pools.
  7. I’m not sure where the OP lives and what airline they are flying, I just suggested if they could possibly fly home out of another airport like WPB or even Miami, where they might find a flight that works better. I know I would rather spend a few extra bucks rather then waiting all day for a flight hone or having a 3 hr trip home take me 7-9 hours because of stop-overs.
  8. You should check out the Caribbean ports of call boards. You might find your info there or get a better response then here. i googled zip-line tours for St Thomas when we cruised in March and found what I was looking for. There’s also Trip Advisor.

  10. Was never a fan of the Luminae burger. Mast Grill burgers on our Silhouette cruise in March were very good and the fries were fantastic, but the burgers at the Lawn Club Grill were excellent! Had lunch there twice!
  11. That is correct. On M-Class ships there is only one bathroom in a RS. We’ve sailed in the RS and the PH on the Summit and in the PH on the Silhouette. Much prefer the M-class PH. The balcony and butlers pantry are the best features and were sorely missed on our last cruise. With the pricing the way it is lately, we may have to try an S-class RS, although the videos I’ve seen make it look so much smaller and closed in compared to the one on the Summit.
  12. No and no. Usually Celebrity suite and higher get contacted and Royal Suites and higher have unlimited access to the mini fridge
  13. That’s an old listing and someone always finds it a couple of times a year and posts it here. I doubt Celebrity would pour money into a complete renovation just to turn around and sell the ship.
  14. Oh how I miss the Lava Crab and the Disco Shrimp!!Was do disappointed on our last cruise on the Silhouette that the changeover was already made to LPC! Glad we were able to enjoy the old Qsine on 4 Summit cruises!
  15. And the treats at Cafe al Bacio are delicious! There is a case with various cakes and cookies at the counter that are complimentary to all passengers. You may have them there with your coffees and teas or take them to go to enjoy in your cabin.
