  1. We visited Keukenhof Gardens on a turn-around day in April, 2015 with no problem at all. Enjoy the gardens, they are beautiful in the Spring!
  2. Does anyone see a correlation between prices of alcohol rising and the fact that Celebrity is scheduling more Carnival-like 3, 4, 5-night "booze cruises"? Their profit margin is no doubt going down with a younger crowd trying to get "their money's worth" by consuming more alcohol from morning to night.
  3. We had a similar problem with our room safe once. The solution was that it needed a new battery. We told our cabin attendant, who made a call, and it was quickly fixed. Hope this helps. Mike and Mary
  4. Just another hint: While on the Reflection for 24 days last month, I found that I had to order "carrots well done" in order to get them cooked properly! Hope this helps.
  5. Congratulations on your wedding anniversary and special dinner in Murano. Kledji is a great waiter who did an excellent job of preparing our table-side lobster several times last month. We look forward to meeting you on the September 27, 2024, Connie cruise! Mike and Mary
  6. Hi Jim and Iain, So happy to see that you are doing another live post and looking forward to sharing this adventure from afar with you both. Also, we look forward to sailing with you again in the near future. Mike and Mary
  7. Thank you for taking the time to post this "public service video" as you first post on Cruise Critic! It is valuable information for all travelers. Mike and Mary
  8. @Stockjock We have been following along and have truly enjoyed all that you have shared. Thanks for providing all of us with so many great photos and information for future cruises. Safe travels back home. Mike and Mary
  9. Thanks, Jim. Definitely not as good as if sofa and bed were on the same wall across from the TV.
  10. We too are curious about the cheesecake from your first night's dinner. Was it shown on the menu as available every night? It looks delicious! Thanks in advance. Mike and Mary
  11. We too had this "authentic experience", but it was back in 1983 - before the cable car existed. Once was enough for us especially as we are now in our 70's! Those were the "good old days" when there were NO crowds and our ship, carrying ONLY 100 passengers, was the ONLY ship in port that day! Thanks for the memories! Mike and Mary
  12. Head shot like for your driver's license or passport is what they want. If it's not satisfactory, they will take a quick pic when you check in on embarkation day.
  13. Have you tried SeaBands? I too get car sick and wear them on all excursions (land and sea). Luckily, I have never needed them aboard a ship anywhere in the world, including the Med.
  14. Have you tried looking at your tour in Cruise Planner? You should be able to see the full description of the tour you have booked. If that doesn't work, we suggest you call the Captain's Club. Good luck.
  15. Hi Jim, Following you and Iain as you discover Ponant. We will be most interested in your experience. Thank you for giving us a "front row seat"! All our best, Mike and Mary
  16. Great News! So glad it all worked out for you! Mike and Mary
  17. Hi Royce, We had a similar situation a number of years ago with tickets thru FBC on Delta. We called Delta directly and we were able to make the changes without going through FBC. Our suggestion would be to try American first and, if no luck, then go through FBC. Best of luck. Mike and Mary
  18. Hi Sallie, Thanks to your great review and recommendation, we have booked the "Tuscan Farmhouse Experience" for our day in Livorno in October, 2024. We have been to Livorno many times before and were looking for something different to do. This tour sounds perfect for us and we are really looking forward to it. We appreciate you taking the time to write such a thoughtful review and for sharing so many great photos! Mike and Mary
  19. Good to hear that there ARE toilets! That beats the hole in the ground I experienced at the Heritage Village in Abu Dhabi, UAE and the National Aviary in Cartagena, Columbia recently! (Ladies beware!) I can deal with the "little bin". Yes, the weather should be cooler in October. Thank you so much for your prompt response. Mary
  20. We are really enjoying your review from your July cruise on the Beyond. How special that you can share these memories with your daughters! One small question: As we will be going to Katakolon in October and taking the "Olympia site and Archaeological Museum" tour, I am curious about your comment regarding the "Greek plumbing". Was there a Western-style restroom at the museum or would you consider it "primitive"? I just want to be prepared. If you would feel more comfortable discussing this offline, you can email me at: mserraino AT outlook DOT com. Thanks so much. Mary
  21. Hi Les43, Thanks for your great review! We are following along as we are doing this same itinerary and the following TA in October. We think Cranston is a gem! If you have a chance, could you ask him if he will be aboard for the October 9 and 19 sailings. Please tell him Mike and Mary say "Hello" and we look forward to seeing him again! TIA
