  1. They have to add in the prepaid gratuities and then Celebrity will remove them based on the promo. I was told it could take up to 10 days but they were removed the next day. This happens any time we get prepaid gratuities as one of our perks.
  2. Not on a cruise but last summer we spent 3 days in Florence before heading to Rome for our med cruise. We had just checked into the hotel, freshened up to go out exploring. I walked out the door and standing right across the street was the president of my company. He was so stunned to see me he couldn't remember my name [emoji3] (it's a small company and I've been there 7 years). Neither one of us knew the other was going to Italy. Fun coincidence.

  3. Don't bother with the excursion or cab to Maho Beach. After you follow the instructions in the above post to get to downtown, go one street up from the beach and take a "bus" for $2.00 pp. The bus is actually a 12 seater van but it's the best bang for your buck anywhere! You can do the same on return at your own pace. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  4. Unfortunately , I can’t send you a link as it’s on my phone. I’ll try to figure it out after we get home but that’s not until Sunday. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. We are on the Solstice. I shot some pretty good footage of the crater (lava lake) collapsing into itself creating the plumes of smoke and sulfur dioxide. We were at the steam vents and just starting to walk to the lookout. When our guide whipped out his phone and started racing towards it we knew it must be big. We were at the Macadamia nut farm eating lunch when the earthquake hit. We’ve never experienced anything like it. Vans and buses were swaying,the patio roof was going back and forth. Quite the experience for many of us. On the way to Black Beach we saw many line ups at the gas stations,road and beach closures, sirens were going off, heavy helicopter traffic along the coast. When we got to the beach, we were told by a lifeguard that it was closed because of tsunami warnings. At that point we all agreed to call it a day and return to the ship for a good stiff drink! You are right in saying that we have good stories to tell. It’s all anyone was talking about. Thinking about the people of Hilo and praying they all stay safe. So sad for the evacuees [emoji53] Sent from my iPhone using Forums
