osiebosie Posted September 12, 2006 #1 Share Posted September 12, 2006 We just booked our cabin. Right now we are in 2000, which is an ov cabin on the continental deck. We're cool with it, but are hoping some cabins that are being held come available. There's one balcony, 6018, that may come available, and three cc cabins, 7198, 8177, and 8149 that may come available. I am concerned with 8149 and it's proximity to the elevators. If anyone has any input on that one I'd appreciate hearing it. My daughter and son-in-law are in cc class. I don't know if we can hang with them if we're not in cc class while waiting in line for embarkation and tenders. Does anyone know? We are so excited! We've sailed with Celebrity before, but it was eight years ago on the Galaxy. We took a 16-day cruise through the Panama Canal. It was the best cruise we've ever had. I imagine this one will be right up there with that one. I have five weeks to get ready and figure out what in the world I will pack for cold weather. Does anyone know how many formal nights we will have? I don't have my docs yet, and I don't have a book either. I need to pick one up. We tried to sign up for the Captain's/Admiral's Club, but you have to be a past guest to sign up. Well, we've sailed X before, but it was before they had the club, so they have no record of our sailing. The guy asked me if I had any paperwork from that cruise to prove that we sailed. :o "Uhh, no, that was eight years ago," I replied. I said we had pictures, but no paperwork. Believe it or not, he said a picture would suffice, but, alas, I have packed them away and don't know right where they are. There would be no benefit for us from the Club anyway, according to the Celebrity agent, unless we end up staying in the 2000 cabin. Then we would get a break in the price. Oh, well. If anyone has any secrets or suggestions for me, I sure would appreciate it. Are there hair dryers in the cabins? What if we are in the ov cabin? Are the hair dryers the same in all cabins? We cruised a few weeks ago on Carnival, and there were hair dryers, but they weren't very good, and I will pack my own if I need to. On Carnival, you had to hold the button down the whole time you wanted the hair dryer to run. Thanks for all of your input. Btw, my daughter is pregnant, so there's actually five of us traveling together!!! :p She will be about 18 weeks along. Talk about finding clothes that fit!! Speaking of clothes, I see there's no laundromat, so does anyone have any idea of the pricing of them doing laundry for you? I know it's a general question, but we'll have to have some stuff washed. Guess how we decided on this trip!?! We had an RV trip planned when my daughter asked us to go along with her and her dh. We went back and forth for two days, and finally wrote "RV" on a piece of paper and "CRUISE" on another. I folded them each about four times, George put them in a mug, shook them up and drew one. I had the honor of reading what came out. It said CRUISE! So, here we are planning our trip! We'll just have to RV some other time.
