  1. Hey Keith: Sorry we won't see you down here in S. FL Hope you have a great trip to Hawaii. It sounds wonderful and you will have a great time...It is nice to do something different. I am sure you will meet others on-board. We are looking forward to our Christmas cruise on Celebrity Reflection... Take care and be well...
  2. Hi All: We I will throw in my 2 1/2 cents...😁 My Partner and I have logged over 40 cruises. We primarily cruise with Celebrity and Princess, though we have been on the other lines a couple of times and they were not our cup of tea. We do not even discuss NCL as an option (after one cruise) in our home - but that is for another conversation. We did enjoy two of our three cruises on Oceania - but that is a totally different market segment. My Partner prefers Princess; I personally prefer Celebrity. We are at the top tier on Princess and Elite on Celebrity. Celebrity by far has much better perks then Princess - though we we now get a free Mini Bar on Princess vs. free 2 hour Happy Hour daily on Celebrity. We enjoy free laundry on both - but did check to see if a pair of socks counted as one or two pieces of clothing..😊 It only counts as one--thank goodness. We always seem to know the bartenders and waiters on the ships along with a couple of Officers and we are always treated respectfully on both lines as a gay couple - though do not emphasize it in a public forum (Don't ask; Don't tell).😊 I personally think they do nickel and dime you a bit more on Princess, but Celebrity on-board prices have increased quite a bit, as of late, as they are attempting to compete with the higher-end rather than the mass market lines... Another issue -- we are late seating diners and Celebrity has many of the shows "pre-dinner" which my Partner was not too happy about. We do prefer the shows after dinner which Princess does do. We did not get to see one show on the last cruise on Celebrity, as we do not like to rush on vacation - especially when finishing up the two hour Happy Hour.🎈🍸 We actually have two trips planned on Celebrity for Christmas in the Caribbean and to Iceland in the summer of 2020, but it looks like Princess for Spring Break 2020. It is a tough life but someone has to do it... LOL😁 Happy Sailing to All!!!
  3. Only 10 months to Sail Away... Hope others are considering this amazing cruise... Maybe we will get to bring home a Viking... LOL😊
  4. Hi all!!! Hard to believe this Christmas cruise is only 3 months away... Hope others will be joining us.. See you all soon...😁
  5. Hi All!! The number of people on the cruise is growing by leaps and bounds... Hope to meet others traveling. See you all soon..
  6. Hi Everyone!!! Just back from our summer cruise and looking forward to our Christmas cruise... See you all soon..
  7. All Aboard!!! 9 Days and Counting...🎈
  8. Redtravel - Thank you so much for the information. We have an overnight there, so we are looking forward to an evening in Seville. 😀
  9. 21 Days and Counting!!! All Aboard!!! 😀🎈
  10. roothy123 - We were surprised as well... Some other members in our CC group had it on their travel information that it was Seville. We had the original information that discussed Cadiz. We are happy to go to Seville, as we have an overnight there too. ICT lineman - Thank you for that wonderful information. We just picked up our DK Eyewitness Top 10 book for Lisbon as well as Andalucia and Seville. We use that series of books for all major cities and regions - it is small (to carry) and has city and transit maps too. We are on the 7/5 Sirena trip next month... We try to get to Europe every year.. Thanks again!!!
  11. Belfastman - Thank you. Everything we read did not say anything about going up the river. Great!!!
  12. We are travelling on Sirena next month and everything I have read on Oceania points toward ships docking in Cadiz. After a discussion on our ships' thread, someone mentioned that the ship will be going up the Guadalquivir river and docking in Seville (not Cadiz). Has anyone had this experience? I have not seen anything on it before. I hope they are correct. If so, is it in a central location of Seville, as we have an overnight? Thank you
  13. Thank you for that information. Where is that ignore feature located???😊 Keithm - Hi there!! You found me...😊 I agree totally, but we would like a "A" cabin, preferably A2 - we like that category location and the little perks associated with it. We also snapped up a great "flash deal" for our cruise in July, so I am sure they would love to have us cough up some extra cash on the cabin. We have an outside at the present time which is fine. We also will wait and see.. Keithm - Sorry that trip on Celebrity got cancelled. Now you will be on a Valentine's Day cruise.💘 You will have a great time. E-mail me to let us know when you are arriving in S. FL, so we can get together, if possible.
  14. docmark - I apologize for not acknowledging you in my last post...Happy Sailing!!!😊
  15. We have been Elite for several years... presently trying to claw our way to Elite+ LOL😊... But the first time we had free laundry, we called to find out if a pair of socks counted as one or two items... We laughed and the woman on the phone laughed.. For the good of the group, I am happy to report a pair of socks counts as one item...😁
