  1. We used to think Celebrity was more focused on cruising with few children especially on 10 plus day cruises. We don’t have children but enjoy seeing the well behaved older children at dinner and around the ship. But after seeing a baby crawling on the Martini Bar floor of the Equinox 10 day during prime 6pm pre dinner while doting parents filmed it last year and other strollers in Celebrity bars with fussy crying babies ( hey.. it’s what they all do). The previous year on Equinox 10 day we had a one year old baby crawl under our balcony divider to ours. 🙀🙀🙀 we’ve taken the cue and advice here and booked other lines. May still have babies and toddlers but why stick with Celebrity if they have them too. We are Elite now but don’t have loyalty to Celebrity anymore. Our choice where to spend so we are going to spread our vacay dollars around. Decided to try Regent Seven Seas new Splendor next year. Viking Ocean also of interest.
  2. Thanks! and of course to add to the confusion the Cruise Planner only shows the $49.99 pp deal. Maybe a purchase pre-cruise but the a la carte still there once you are onboard. Will find out in April 😎
  3. Is it correct then that you must purchase the $49.99 per person at Izumi and that a la cart is no longer available at all on Serenade? Thanks! ~ Melissa
  4. I keep large engagement diamond in cabin safe but wear small diamond chip studded wedding ring off ship. I also bring $$$ jewelry but just wear on ship. My husband feels that we have insurance and he Loves to see me wear his jewelry gifts instead of locked up at home. He says I bought for you to enjoy wearing. But I would never wear $$$ jewelry off ship
  5. And worth the higher cost to book higher Tower Port view room. The views of the ships arriving and leaving plus the 17th street bridge opening are fabulous. Water taxi leaves from property and long term parking is $10 a night.
  6. I understand. Hilton doesn't advertise this and you can't book it in advance. But there is plenty of valet parking spaces for the $10 a night deal since many people self park.
  7. actually it is $30 for just one night only through Hilton or the long term through their parking management group: https://parking.com/fort-lauderdale/hotels-hilton/hilton-fort-lauderdale-marina?lot_id=20527&showListOnly=1&view=daily&sw=26.101383046681207,-80.12051076528046&ne=26.101676953140753,-80.11998323470935&facility&valet&general=&displayFullCity=0 We used it for 12 days overnight parking while on cruise in November and our bill was $120.00 😎
  8. I checked for long term parking in the area and the group that manages the Hilton Marina parking offers $10 a day parking. You just tell them at check in at the front entrance. It is billed as part of your Hilton stay. Valet parking of our vehicle and half the cost of the port parking.
  9. We loved the hotel but the directions from SIRI on my iphone were a scream. Great routing until we got on 17th street. We knew the hotel was on the left but Siri said keep straight and then in the middle of the 17th street bridge she said "Turn left here". LOL I don't think so Siri! We went over the bride and had to make a U-turn and then once across the bridge it was a right turn into a complex and a side road to the hotel destination.
  10. ...and these "hot" tech companies that failed: https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/failed-tech-companies-most-notable/
  11. So these are the new untouchables we have to tolerate on the ship as they bother us. And have to leave our own enjoyable space to respect them. wow!!!!
  12. The Eden video also reminds me of this. Both laugh-worthy!
  13. Wow. Hope you have a relaxing and fun time at sea! Will watch you return tomorrow
  14. How many patients? Any update on what happened? Thanks!
  15. You can watch the Reflection enter Port E now by going to port fever webcam for port Everglades. It’s outside port now at 11:36 am EST. And the Goodyear Blimp just went by
