On my recent TA I was able to print my boarding docs but the luggage tags said "not available". I called celebrity and they mailed them to me. Maybe you can get them emailed.
I saw Jelena and Luca, both great!

Just off the Equinox and the bartenders and drinks at the Molecular bar were amazing! Try the Celebrity Martini.
From a locals point of view
I work right near the port and am headed on a cruise tomorrow! So nice to drive 25 minutes from home and be on vacation! Anyway, Bimini has a few great fish dishes, the snapper and the mahi are both...
Taxi
I too was on the April 30th sailing and took a taxi to the port. It was quick and easy after a long journey to Venice. Cost between 40-50 euros. Keep in mind that the people mover does not drop you...
Tipping in FLL
I live in FLL and had no knowledge of this. These men are the ones we are trusting to get our luggage onto the ship. With all the money we are paying for our cruises, does it really break the bank to...
Saint John Resort
I contacted them, will be in Mykonos on May 7th. Got the following reply....



Thank you for your interest in Saint John hotel.

Kindly be informed that the Hotel will open for season 2011...
Shoes, a girl's best friend!
I try to pack all clothes around one color. usually black, brown or white. Am travelling to the Med, black as my base color. Will take the following:

Black dress shoes
Black shoes for casual...

And the answer is, we liked the dates and itinerary of the cruise we booked with HAL. There was nothing comparable on either Princess or Celebrity which are my usual choices. Thought I would give HAL...
Dress in the MDR
You know, this is such a hotly debated subject. There are many threads debating dress code. I think what you described is perfectly acceptable. We are cruising the Med in three weeks and DH will take...
When I was in Nassau last, my sister and...
When I was in Nassau last, my sister and brother-in-law took their two kids over to Atlantis on Paradise Island (you can take a water taxi there or a taxi from the port). They paid a flat rate for...
Fore end of ship
We once took a guarantee, which we will never do again. Got a stateroom all the way in the front and in each port, when the anchor dropped in the morning (usually VERY early), it woke us up.

Am crusing the Med on the NA in three weeks. If you want to contact me late May I'll let you know my experience. I am in my mid 50's. DH is a very active 70.
Smoking on balconies
This is exactly what I am afraid of. DH and I spent a lot of money to have a balcony for our upcoming Med cruise on the NA. From what I am reading I am afraid that we wasted money as we may not be...
How to pack light
The thing to remember is that everybody has the same limitations, so we all wear things multiple times. I pack with one basic color (black) and mix and match tops. That limits the amount of...
Crusing Alaska
I cruised Alaska several years ago with Princess, which is one of my favorite cruise lines (the other being Celebrity). That being said, you will find that Princess and Holland America are the...

I love the balcony too, but have had some bad experiences with smokers that made it impossible for me to be out on the balcony or even leave the doors open at night for sleeping. On our Alaskan...
Formal Dress
For me the issue is packing. While DH and I like to dress up, when you are going on a 12 night cruise on a ship that does not have a self service laundromat, tack on to that a few days in Venice...

What I have done in the past is pour my glass of wine in my stateroom and carry it to the dining room with me. The maitre d always carries it to the table for me.
Sneakers and appropriate dress
We are going on a Med cruise in April. My husband, who has a very hard time buying comfortable shoes, has some great white walking sneakers that he is most comfortable in. We see nothing wrong with...
Easier way
What I do in this case is drive to the pier, check luggage and then drive to Park and Fly. No luggage to deal with!
Park & Fly
I use Park and Fly all the time. Excellent Service. I once got to the airport to find that I had left something in the back of my car and the driver turned around and drove me back to get it, and...
Game changing everyyear
The rules of the game do not change. What changes are the sets and runs that you must have in your hand to win. Unlike gin rummy, where you can have any set or run, the hand must contain exact sets...
Bimini Boatyard
Last time I was there was for a holiday lunch. It was after the new owners took over and I actually thought it was better than it had been before. I don't go there often though, sorry.
Crowne Plaza in Fort Lauderdale
THis is a brand new hotel that may be nice inside, but it is located on a very busy street corner (US1 and SR 84) farther from restaurants. For an overnight stay it should be fine. I would check and...
