  1. We got our email from AmEx this week regarding the membership increase, which I think is quite substantial !! We enjoy using the SkyLounge and will probably shell out the extra $10 bucks if we have a multi hour wait at the airport. We generally let our points build up and use them for our cruise flights. Maybe we will look into other travel cards after our cruise this year because the membership increase really is ridiculous !
  2. That's wonderful news !! We are cruising Dec. 14th and I wasn't happy about the "missing" footstools. Hubby has double knee replacements and needs to have his feet up quite a bit. So happy about this news.
  3. I am sooooo enjoying your live review !! My husband and I sail in December in an AQ cabin also. We have one on the hump and are hoping for an actual lounger (fingers crossed). These "bathroom footstools" are crazy ! I can't believe the actual footstools were all removed. NO ONE is happy about it. Anywhoooo ~ I've enjoyed your meal reviews with pics. We have booked the Tuscan Grille and Murano for a couple nights. Looking forward to that. This will be our 15th cruise but first with Celebrity. Thank you so much for your insight. Looking forward to your next installment ~ Cindy
  4. We have been told by our travel agent the California Coastal cruises have pretty rough seas. Would like some comments from experienced cruisers who have given it a try. We've done multiple Caribbean cruises and cruised NCL out of Hawaii. We are ready for something different and I've never been to California and would like to possibly give it a try. Thanks so much for any input.
  5. Thank you for the wonderful review !! We will be in cabin 1599 on our December cruise. I am bothered about the lack of footstools or loungers. We are on the slant and I am hoping for loungers or will ask for them. My hubby has had double knee replacement surgeries and was looking forward to relaxing on the balcony. Sounds like the Aqua Class is a bit different from the advertisements when we booked. If they are going to delete perks, the website should reflect such. But.... all that whining aside, we are looking forward to trying Celebrity after about 12 RCL cruises. We will be happy just being together 🙂
  6. Thank you for the wonderful review !! Sounds like you had a lovely cruise with just enough activity and relaxation. We look forward to our first Celebrity Cruise in December. We usually sail RCCL and are ready for a change ~
  7. We are cruising in December also and are excited to try Celebrity. We've been on many Royal Caribbean cruises and thought the Equinox looked like a lovely ship to try. It can't get here quick enough !!
  8. I would take a wrap or sweater with me into the theaters, especially the ice rink for the show. For me it's better to have a wrap and not use one than be chilled.
  9. Thank you for the fun review. Can't wait for our December cruise. In the meantime I am living through the reviews !!! Keep it up
  10. Love hearing about "who you are" and I currently am an Overplanner !!! I enjoy all the trip planning and research. And my husband benefits from it, as he just goes along with whatever I've planned. Can't wait for more of your review. We will be sailing her in December 2019. Eagerly awaiting more ......
  11. Thank you all for the replies. Just looking forward to relaxing on a lounge, reading my book, taking a nap :)
  12. We are sailing in December on the Allure of the Seas. We splurged for a Jr. Suite for a little extra room. We have a cabin on the bump out and I wondered if those balconies are a little deeper than the other Jr. Suite balconies. I want to make sure we have 2 full size loungers. I know there is also a table and 2 chairs. Would appreciate any replies.
  13. We have a long wait for our cruise on the Allure - December. So I am thoroughly enjoying your commentary !! Your live review makes the anticipation all the more fun :) Can't wait for some more.
  14. Does the tub in the Allure of the Seas Jr. Suites have a plastic curtain or a glass panel ? I looked at pictures of Symphony of the Seas and the tub has the glass panel. Just wondering. Thanks for any responses.
  15. Thank you for your More Than Amazing Posts !!!! My husband and I will be sailing next December (So Far Away !!) He packs like you do. I laughed when I saw all your shirts. He has a suitcase with just shoes, flip flops and sandals. We will be in a Jr. Suite and look forward to the extra space. Thanks again for your entertaining and informative posts !
