  2. I will add your comments to your entry in the spreadsheet; but will not be adding a column to collect information on what people spend on board - for most cruisers, that is a private issue.

  6. CELEBRITY MOVE UP TRACKER updated November 8, 2019 up to post #124
  7. Thank you for your very kind words. Yes, we were starboard (land facing). We had great views, however going through the Chilean Fjords / Magellan Strait - you will have land on both sides. As well, the best views I had was on the promenade deck (able to switch sides easy enough) and the Oceanview Buffet/Bar outdoor area (aft facing) where many birds were diving into the wake.

  9. This board is for collecting data only (please do not post questions / comments here); there are several other message threads on the Celebrity Board for that purpose. With appreciation to keep this thread “free from noise” [ie., data collection, only], Tracker Keeper, Heather
  10. @DiamondDiva - I don't mind at all! quite appreciative of your kind words. Hope others find it helpful as well. Heather
  11. Thank you for the very kind words. Very nice to hear that you enjoyed the read.
  12. Thank you for your very kind words! Jelena (Mickey's wife) is the best for setting up any private excursions you are interested in. I would highly recommend reaching out to her.
  13. Story and loads of photos now added to the Hubbard Page 🙂 https://baskeytravels.com/hubbard-glacier/
  14. I believe they did open the Helipad for Hubbard day. We were graciously invited to spend time with new friends in the Penthouse for Hubbard viewing, which was in a nutshell, a private half-helipad with amazing views. We were very thankful for the opportunity to not only spend time with new friends, but to view the Hubbard from such an outstanding location. The Millennium was refurbished in 2019 and I do not recall benches being on the helipad when we sailed on her in 2017 and had a sail-in to Thailand in the same location (helipad). It's a really nice touch! I hope to finish the Hubbard post this weekend. Many more photos to share, with the story that goes along with them 🙂
