  1. Lots of comments re mosquito problems. Do I need to wear long pants, long sleeved tops for Peru, Mexico, Chile etc. Will mainly be using the ship excursions, but doing our own thing for a couple of destinations. Also do most countries take US dollars? Thought maybe we would take some Chilean pesos and US dollars for the rest? Any help much appreciated.
  2. EarthSky.org announced today that there will be a total lunar eclipse on Jan 20-21. It should be visible (assuming clear skies) throughout the western hemisphere. The website say many refer to this eclipse as a "blood moon" because for many viewers the moon will look red. Here's a link for more info: lunar eclipse map. Lucky folks who will be at sea then will have the best view because of the unobstructed view of the sky and the darkness surrounding a ship at sea. Enjoy! [Note: also posted this info on the Princess and HAL boards; feel free to post the info to other boards!]
  3. Are the shops, duty free and casino open while in Hawaiian waters?
  4. Does anyone know what Celebrations means under the ‘Add Ons’ column on my booking? I haven’t pre ordered anything.
  5. We are taking the Celebrity Eclipse South American cruise in March 2019 from Buenos Aires to Santiago. These may be silly questions but we are new to the cruising thing! 1. What's the temperature like in the common areas of the ship like bars/restaurants/theater and so on ... does it tend to be warm enough for short sleeved tops or are long sleeves required? 2. I've found some details about dress code requirements but not much info regarding footwear ... can anyone provide some insight? Are formal dress shoes needed for dinner etc. or can you wear trainers/runners as long as they are smart looking and clean? What's the deal with wearing jeans for dinner ... OK or no? 3. How exactly does the tendering process work for non-elite folk? How far in advance can you get tickets? We have private tours booked at a few tender ports ... what if anything can we do to ensure we get off the ship in a timely fashion? I've also heard the ships used for tendering can get pretty choppy ... I have a tendency to get sea sick - any suggestions to minimize the risk of puking?
  6. Does anyone know what Celebrations means on my booking under the heading Add Ons? I haven’t ordered anything.
  7. What production shows are on the Eclipse now.
  8. Anyone recently off Eclipse? Wondering if the Sky Lounge was open or the 3 vouchers or both.
  9. We’re staying in a sunset veranda - is it possible to buy a pass for the Persian Garden for the length of the cruise ?
  10. Hi, sorry if this has been asked before. I find the new system really hard to search! I need to find out quickly because I'm about to book a cabin on Deck 9 or 10 mid/aft port side. Can anyone tell me if those balconies will be affected by the smoke from Deck 5's smoking areas? My husband and I are both allergic to cigarette smoke. Thanks so much!
  11. I booked a starboard side cabin for this itinerary but now I'm thinking port side may offer better views. My only concern is that port side deck 5 is smoking correct? That would ruin my trip. I have cabin 8252 booked. https://www.celebritycruises.com/itinerary-details/10-night-hawaii-cruise-from-honolulu-oahu-hawaii?packageID=EC10H023&sDT=2019-10-03&cCD=CO&aCB=false
  12. Hi all! New to Celebrity but veteran Disney cruisers. We've booked an ocean view on deck 3 of the Eclips for a Pacific Coastal Cruise. Tell me all about my cabin and deck 3 and well the Eclipse in general. All info is appreciated. We know nothing about the staterooms or dining or shows or anything. I have googled and read reviews but all of the info I found is kind of generic or more for people familiar with Celebrity which we are not. Although it does sound like the food, service and shows will be great compared to some other lines. Can't wait to experience it! So let's here it, the good, the bad, the everything!
  13. Even built in 2010, she made her first call yesterday . tQKNCIcjsvs
  14. I was just wondering what the blow dryer is like on the Eclipse. Is it different in concierge? Does anyone have a picture? Thanks Michelle
  15. We enjoyed a fantastic cruise on the Eclipse from Barcelona to Buenos Aires. The only negative experience was on the last day of the cruise. I reported the issue to Celebrity after returning home, but was rebuffed, as if my concerns were unfounded. I am not seeking retribution or reimbursement, but felt Celebrity needed to be aware of the unfortunate circumstances we encountered. I would appreciate input from people who disembarked in Buenos Aires at the conclusion of the Celebrity Eclipse cruises beginning on 11/23/18 or 12/9/18. Could you please tell me how long the ride was on the shuttle bus from the ship to the terminal where luggage was collected? For example, were you on the bus for 5 minutes, 20 minutes, etc. Thank you in advance. Paula
  16. Does anyone know where I can find a complete list of shops on the Eclipse? After years of trying to avoid shopping on board, I'm now doing packing for a Christmas cruise next week and wondering if I will be able to pick up some gifts on board for my kids. I'm thinking like balls or puzzles or stuffed toys. I'm not that picky.
  17. I'm looking to book a b2b in Jan2020 on the Eclipse and am trying to figure out the best option for a 2C cabin. It looks like the ones available for both sailings (l like the bed by the bathroom so that narrows down the list) are: 6249, 6253, 6257, 6246 and 6254. I think the best bet is to be above the smaller lifeboats (not tenders) but I defer to those of you that have been in or seen these cabins for advice!! Any help would really be appreciated!
  18. Sorry this topic has been asked on the temporary Floating Lounge before but the post is nowhere to be found now. So I'll post again: Eclipse: Honolulu, Kona, Kilauea Volcano sail-by, Lahaina, Hilo, Cruising x 5, Vancouver Solstice: Honolulu, Hilo, Kona, Lahaina x 2, Cruising x 5, Vancouver I've been to all those islands before so I don't mind either itinerary. Both sailings offer "The World is Open" promo giving free tips and Classic Beverage Package (my 2 choices). Both ships have good reviews. It's just that I've read more positive comments about Solstice so I was leaning more towards it. But now Eclipse has this Resident offer that is much cheaper than Solstice even after adding back the extra costs of tips and drinks (we don't drink much). I am thinking of booking the Eclipse instead. 1. What are the negatives if I book Eclipse instead of Solstice? Both itinerary and ship wise? 2. How calm will the water be normally in April/May when coming back from Hawaii to Vancouver? 3. How bad is it to book forward balcony cabins as far as rough seas is concerned? Will taking Bonine be good enough? Bonine worked on all my previous non-pacific crossing cruises. 4. For the 5 sea days, did you find enough things to do/attend/see? 5. Does anyone have the Daily Activities print outs (or whatever it's called for Celebrity) for 10-day cruises on the Eclipse or Solstice? (I never cruised with Celebrity before) Thanks in advance! 🙂
  19. We've just booked a cruise on Eclipse in a Royal Suite on Deck 11, based on the information provided on the X website. It appears from the cabin diagram on the site that the RS has a separate half-bath near the door to the suite. Would someone who knows that suite be so kind as to confirm that is the case? Thanks for the help.
  20. CCL site says that the Retreat will be fleet wide by Feb. 2019. Does anyone have information to confirm (or deny) this to be true for the Eclipse? Thanks so much
  21. Even though I have cruised many times, this is my first attempt at a LIVE BLOG. My name is Norma and I am traveling on this trip with my friend Liesa. I retired 2 years ago April and have never looked back at returning to work. I live north of San Francisco in Novato, Ca. I have lived here for 13 years, previously I lived in Beaverton Oregon. I hope that I can follow in the footsteps of ChicagoPaul, Jim_lain and Trainman-2 who is an avid cruiser on RCCL. Unfortunately he has been given a shorter lease on life than he would have hope and its what made me want to do a blog. SO HERE’S TO YOU JIM AND YOUR WIFE JUDITH!!!! The Transatlantic portion of the cruised was booked when we were on the Silhouette TA in 2016. The Med portion was booked in April 2018. The first leg for the Med we are in a veranda 2B accessible cabin, on the TA we are in inaccessible A2 Aqua cabin. My partner in crime needs to use a scooter due to health issues. I fly today from SFO to Barcelona via Paris on Air France flight 083 in Premium Economy. Liesa fly’s from Newark non stop to Barcelona on Norwegian in Premium Economy. We are staying at a quirky hotel in Barcelona, the Hotel Continental for 2 nights. The best part is its on La Rambla. Rooms are clean and we have a small balcony right on La Rambla. I know it can be noisy as I have stayed there one other time but folks its Barcelona!!!! Next issue was luggage all packed but when I went to zip both cases each had an issue, so out I went yesterday to purchase new suitcases. Norma
  22. Hi all. I have never done AQ nor have I ever been on Eclipse, so I need some help. Looking for a QUIET cabin in the aft part of the ship. We're currently booked in 1638 & I read a post in which someone commented that there's a crew door across from 1632 (where our friends are booked...ugh) and that you may hear it in 1638. Then I was looking at 1633 and a couple of people reported loud "vibration" sounds from that part of the ship. Any suggestions? Keep 1638 or move?
  23. Hi, I'm pretty sure the duty free shops should be open on Eclipse's Honolulu to Vancouver cruise. Just wish someone who was on this itinerary to confirm for me. If not where would you suggest me to buy the duty free liquor beforehand and have the ship store them for me until I disembark? Does anyone know if the duty free liquor prices onboard is better or worse than places on land?
  24. I do not know if X is having system problem or this just became chartered. I am currently booked on it and my entire account is also locked out, which has not happened before. Other cruise TA sites are also not showing this cruise. Gosh... disappeared, not dissapeared. LOL
  25. HI all. Myself, my partner, my mom and her best friend were on the May 20th sailing round trip out of Dublin to the Norwegian Fjords. The cruise was amazing, the fjords spectacular and weather couldn’t have been better. Only downside was that my mom’s best friend became sick on day 3 of 8 day cruise. She really never left her bed after day 3. She went to the ship doctor and was diagnosed with a “virus” and gave her an antibiotic. She continued to get worse. By time we disembarked, she needed a wheelchair thru the airports and once we wer back in Florida, she went straight to the hospital. She was diagnosed with Pneumonia caused by Legianella bacteria which is the cause of Legionnaires disease. I guess typically the source is air vents, water faucets etc. Apparently cruise ships are a major source of the transmission of Legianella bacteria. The health dept came to her hospital bed and interviewed her to do an investigation . She was hospitalized for 5 days. About a week later, she had to meet with a CDC doctor who told her he was fairly certain it probably came from the rain shower head in the bathroom?? Odd. But ok. I dont know if he narrowed it down to that because my mom didnt get sick and they were sharing a cabin and mom didnt use the rain shower head, she used the normal shower head only? To me, it sounds like the doctor was just making an educated guess since ships are the most common source apparently and because of the timing of when she started showing symptoms? To me. I’m a bit skeptical, perhaps the airplane, the hotel in Dublin, back home in Florida? But what do i know, I’m not a doctor. But it has been a back and forth thing and constant speculation ever since. I just thought I would see if anyone else came down with it while on the ship or has heard anything about anyone taking ill. They were in sky suite 2132 (12 th deck)....The rest of us were totally fine, so...just weird. Thanks for everyone’s time....
