Did not even think about this when I booked. We are on the Seaside 2/10/2018, 15 days. I assume that even though we booked as one long cruise with one booking number, it may actually be treated as a...

Susan,

Maybe it won't be as bad as you think. Pat and I did a B2B on Princess last year (CA Coastal followed by Mex Riv). There were 75 kids on leg one, and 600 on the second leg. Everyone...

Please note that the US price for the 3 meal combo on the Seaside is $69. Bea's quoted price of $50 was for Divina if I recall correctly. Use this price when doing the currency conversion.

Hi Danny,

First, welcome to the wonderful world of cruising. Prepare to be hooked!

Let me premise my comments on the fact that I have never sailed MSC, but I am booked on the Seaside next Feb....

Thanks to everyone who responded. I have decided to book the SeaSide. Love that new ship smell, plus it is 3 days longer, and who wouldn't want more time on the ship. Ports are not important to us,...
Should I choose Divina or Seaside?
I am looking to book a cruise in Feb, 2018. The Divina is doing an 11 day for about $1500, and the Seaside a 14 day for $1800, both for minimum balcony cabins. We are 2 seniors, don't care about...
Thanks, YellowDog.
Thanks, YellowDog.
MSC Seaside questions
I am thinking about booking the Seaside in Feb 2018. Does anyone know the tonnage and passenger capacity of the ship? The design is certainly interesting!

The greatest thing about cruising is that you can do whatever you like, or on the other hand, nothing at all. My wife and I love Transatlantic cruises especially for the sea days.

Thanks you all for your comments. I'll be sure to take the TA information on their OBC with us.
Refundable OBC?
On an upcoming cruise, I have OBC from Celebrity, and OBC from my travel agent. Are any of these credits refunded if not spent?
mealtime options besides buffet
I am going to be sailing with friends who are new to Celebrity. She wishes to avoid the buffet for dietary reasons, and I hope someone will be able to spell out what other options are available for...
One more question about Select reservations
One more question about Select reservations.

I am interested in reserving at least some of the nights on our upcoming TA cruise. I noticed that the site asked for only one name & res number for...

Hey Brenda, the next Woo Woo cruise is Nov 1, 2015, Southampton to Miami. Come and join us. I was just interested in the internet because Pat has to check daily for Aid4Greys orders. These...

Thank You for the information. Even with work going on, I was reticent to move, since we booked this cabin especially for the large balcony. We will be sailing out of Southampton on Nov 1, so the...
Unlimited Internet?
Somewhere (sorry, but I do not remember exactly where), a copy of the "Celebrity Today" newsletter had a blurb about Elite and above being able to trade their internet minutes for unlimited internet....

CrystalGirl, I would appreciate a report after your cruise. I am booked in the stateroom directly above yours, on the November 1 Transatlantic. We booked this cabin for the large balcony. ...

Susan, thanks from us, also. I clicked on your link, switched to sattelite view, and you could even see two ships tenders at the wharf. Looks like an easy walk-around port.

Post cruise?
I never thought of it before, but when your cruise is over, you go find your bags among the thousands of others, stacked neatly (or not so neatly) in the large hall. Who takes all of the bags out...

HOW DO YOU TIP A PORTER?

Push real hard on one side. If he doesn't tip over, repeat procedure!

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Switching TA after booking?
Is it possible to switch the travel agent after a cruise has been booked? I am currently booked on a cruise in Nov, 2015, and my current TA has billed my credit card for the final payment amount,...
9 pax denied boarding, Allure OTS
I was just listening to the port authorities talking to the Allure OTS, and heard that 9 passengers were denied boarding, and they were still waiting for 3 more to arrive before departing.
