  1. Thanks everyone for all your ideas. We are not hoarders and I hate dusting ! So not planning on bringing back loads of stuff but after 2 years of planning & saving this is probably going to be a once in a lifetime trip for us to celebrate my 50th and our 20th anniversary so we wont get to visit any of the places again and I want a few momentos to remind me of what I'm hoping will be amazing holiday. I will also make a scrapbook of the holiday with photos , tickets from excursions and maps etc - I still have the one I made after our honeymoon to Malta and enjoy looking back on it. Between us we have 5 kids & 10 grandkids so I expect we will need to save room in the cases for a few gifts too! Only 2 months to go now so the excitement & countdown has begun !
  2. I am trying to find aiport lounge at Miami airport. One that is after security but isn't affiliated to a particular airline or credit card etc. Just one I can book in advance and use on the day . It will be superbowl weekend and we have 4 hours between being dropped at the airport & our flight. Thanks
  3. Thanks - did you get to choose which excursion you took or did you just get allocated one?
  4. I wondered if all you experienced cruisers have an tips for a newbie. We have our first ever cruise in Jan on the Reflection. We are visiting Cartagenta, ABCs and Grand Cayman . Having never visited any of these places before I am hoping to pick up some small ( flying from the UK so space & weight is important) souvenirs from each place. Something inexpensive but dont just want the usual fridge magnets. I realise this is a subjective question depending on taste but all suggestions welcome. Thanks
  5. Hi, just looking at info for our cruise in Jan and see you did the same excursion we are doing. Could you please tell me once the excursion is finished where do you end up ? We are in port 7-3 and I'm assuming the excursion is fairly early. Just wondered how much time we have left at the end and what else we can do - go to a beach or have a look round the shop area near the port. Thanks for any tips
  6. Hi, can you tell me how to add my celeb excursions to the calendar please. I have downloaded the app and it shows my captain club no but I dont know how to link the excursions. Thanks - cruise in 3 months so not sure if it's too far out yet?
  7. Someone on the celebrity board suggested I post my questions on here. Thankyou As first time cruisers ( sailing the Carribean - Reflection - for the first time in January) we are hoping to make lots of memories and would like to preserve them in pictures. I'm hoping all you knowledgable people can help with a few questions. With regard to photo packages - how much are photos to buy individually? Do they have discounts onboard? I'm not sure whether to go for the actual photos or digital and whether to buy in advance on wait until onboard. Looking on my cruise planner it doesnt seem like you can buy a package that includes both digital and actual photos- seems to be one or other? We have a mixture of Celebrity and privately booked excursions. I know each excursion is different but in general when you go on an organised excursion do the guides take pics of you and then ask if you want to purchase? ie - we are swimming with stingrays - will they take pics of us there? We also want to record our adventures ourselves and are hoping to purchase a new camera in black Friday or Jan sales. We dont want to spend loads but want something that can be used underwater and will take a decent photo without too much effort of changing settings etc. Any recommendations? Thanks is advance for any help and advice.

  9. Thanks it's worth me giving this a try
  10. Thanks everyone for all your advice . It's not a massive deal if we cant upgrade. I just wondered if anyone else had done it or got advice on how to do it. I have emailed AA directly to ask the question. We Usually book everything ourselves but never having done a cruise before we booked a package through a TA. I wanted to upgrade our hotel room post cruise. The TA quoted me an addition $1200 for 7 nights room upgrade I contacted the hotel directly and they are doing it for $84 for 7 nights room upgrade ! Hence I thought I would try and get a better deal on flights!
  11. Flights booked through a TA as part of a package. Thanks
  12. Not done through the cruise, done through a TA. Thanks
