  1. try putting in licence details instead of passport?
  2. i think it’s possibly 11 for the elites. We were offered 12 as the earliest.
  3. That wasn’t our experience. The price quoted was the price paid, there was no additional gratuity added. We had 2 glasses of wine at $8 each and the only charge on the bill was $16. 15/7 cruise.
  4. I think it was about 24 hours before sailing. Too late for us to print luggage labels , they just write them at the port
  5. just off Anthem. We will Rock you was on at 19.30 on 2 days and a matinee one afternoon 14.30. You can only book once on board. Currently starring Curly Watts from Coronation Street as Pop. The anytime dining earliest reservation was 18.45 but we asked and they noted on our reservation (1900)we would be there at 1745. There was no problem and we had 3 courses and were out within 1 hour. Service has been very quick in the dining room. The theatre capacity is greatly reduced with a current capacity of 300 (normally 1300) Most other shows were 1915 and 22.15. I would book your shows as soon as you get on board and work from there. The buffet is currently closed after 1500 and 270 after 1700. Solarium bistro never opens. It is a bit strange eg. waiting to be seated in Windjammer and no self service of drinks but you soon get used to it and the service is very good so no waiting ages for drinks anywhere. It was lovely to be on such an empty ship with the usual staffing level. im sure you’ll love it
  6. I still haven’t received anything for the 15th sailing. Luckily I’m off work and in the North West of England so hopefully shouldn’t have to go far. I’m still annoyed as I’m supposed to be holidaying in the North East and the nearest test centre is in Harrogate, a 2 hour drive away. I’m stressed out about it all as it is - if I was supposed to be at work my stress levels would be through the roof! Lateral flow testing before boarding seems a much better way to organise it!
  7. In the good old days ie. last year there used to be sales of shore excursions every few weeks. I used to keep a close eye on my booking but haven’t bothered for a few months so don’t know the current state of play. Have there been any recently? Chris
  8. have you looked at other cruises. I think it has to be the same number of days but can be on an M or S class ship (assuming your were on M to start with). I don’t think you need GTY to be available, just same level inside/outside/balcony etc.
  9. The airfare doesn’t get transferred over. I would check on the price for next year and see if it’s worth it.
  10. I know I’ve just missed 3 perks for the price of 2 but does anyone know of any upcoming offers? Back when times were normal I remember seeing a post that had a schedule of offers for the forthcoming months, perhaps posted by a TA. Anyone know anything? Chris
  11. Or there will be several drills with a few hundred people in the theatre for example.
  12. Just in case you get to do this trip again, or for others considering it you may be better buying a through ticket from London to Dublin. This would cover you if the train was late and you missed the ferry and can be cheaper than booking the train and ferry separately.
  13. Retreat is just the new name for suites. It appears on all sailings as far as I can tell, including mine on Infinity in July which isn’t due to be revolutionised by that time. if you look in the small print it says not all retreat facilities on all ships.
  14. I don’t think any of that is actually happening just yet so most people will still be able to use the people mover or the Aligaluna boats to get to the cruise terminal.
  15. Sadly we are there on the 15th along with Marella Celebration and Seven Seas Splendor. The Splendor is scheduled to dock 🙁.
  16. I'm intending to do just that. Can you remember how long the sail in takes? I don’t want to get up too late.
  17. That’s fantastic, that’s just what I needed to know. Thank you.
  18. If you choose anytime then you can reserve a table in advance including people from other bookings. We did this and only had to queue up to the podium, once there it was straight in.
  19. Our included package doesn’t show on our personalised so I would have to call Celebrity to upgrade.
  20. Hi. Our July cruise on Infinity needs tendering at Kotor. I’ve only done tendering once before and that was 10 years go on the RCL private island so don’t remember much, I think we just went to disembark as normal and got on a boat. I’ve searched on here but nothing has come up so can someone explain the process for me? Specifically I’ve seen mention of tender tickets. Where do we get these from and will I need my sea pass card? Can I get tickets for my other half without him being there? Can I get tickets for my family who are in a different cabin? We will not be taking a Celebrity tour so I assume they will have priority, how long should we allow to disembark? Any information welcome, Chris
  21. Currently BA flights from ORD and to FCO are in Terminal 5. Just make sure your flight from Chicago isn’t operated by AA but with a BA flight number as this will operate into T3. Process is the same - follow connection signs to your relevant terminal, go through security then on to gates. If transferring T3-T5 then there is a bus transfer as well. If transferring T5-T5 then look at the connecting flights screen when you get off the plane. If you arrive at satellite B or C and your flight is departing from the same then you can do security in the satellite. If it’s not listed then you have to take a shuttle to the main terminal. just follow the signs and you’ll be fine.
  22. We did mangrove kayaking on Bonaire. Great experience and not hard work. We drove past some flamingoes on the way. Just walking along the quayside you can see hundreds of brightly coloured fish so I’m sure the snorkelling is great.
  23. A bit harsh describing Boyzlife as a tribute band - it was one original from Boyzone and one from Westlife.
  24. They seemed to cost more onboard when we were on last year.
