  1. Great to see a positive thread. We were lucky enough to have a cruise ( our first cruise) in Jan this year and have another cruise booked for Feb 2022 so I'm hoping I can start planning soon 🤞 We aren the UK and this year we were also due to have a 10 day holiday/ music festival in Spain and 3 more weekend music festivals & a caravan holiday in the UK which were all cancelled. Instead we had a lovely week in a self catering cottage in Derbyshire in the UK and whilst there enjoyed the countryside & socially distanced visits with family. We have enjoyed spending lots of time in our garden- we planted lots of flowers & have a squirrel family in a tree , we have a lazy spa & my husband built a lovely waterfall for our pond. Also for the first time ever ( been together 23 yrs) we are going away for Christmas. Only for 4 days to a local seaside to a self catering flat with a sea view but its something to look forward to. All our festival bookings have been carried over to next year so our hope for next year is that we will be able to enjoy those & plan our 2022 cruise 😁
  2. We sailed our first ever cruise aqua class on an S class ship at the beginning of the year. I loved breakfast in blu although my husband preferred the choice in the buffet. We both enjoyed dinner in blu & I liked the Persian gardens. We only upgraded because it was only $150 pp for 11 night cruise. We dont have anything to compare it with but we have booked aqua again for our 2022 cruise. This time on M class in one of the aft cabins with the large balconies. We will see if we enjoy it as much!
  3. Yes one of the aft facing Aqua cabins 😊
  4. We are on a carribean cruise on the millenium sailing 21/2/22 dont know if you are on the same one? Our first time in aft cabin.😊
  5. Thanks everyone. Started planning our trip 😊
  6. Thankyou everyone for your suggestions. We have Family near Fort Lauderdale so will prob spent a couple of days with them either post cruise before heading to the Keys or after the Keys before we head home. Husband is used to driving on the right when we hire a car when on holiday elsewhere in Europe. We visited around FL and Miami pre cruise this year (we were lucky to go in Jan before lockdown) so wanted to travel abit further afield next time. Thank you
  7. We have a cruise booked out of Fort Lauderdale in Feb 2022 and having a weeks holiday post cruise we were thinking about visiting Florida Keys - somewhere we have never been. We are from the UK and dont really know where to start. Should we visit one Key or several - what's the best way of getting to the Keys ( and back again for our flight home ) Any recommendations or suggestions appreciated. Thank you
  8. Hi Anita, I know I'm really late to the party here but just wanted to say a massive thankyou for your review. New to cruising we did our first ever cruise ( and I just wrote a review on it as there were no other new reviews to read ) in Jan on the Reflection to ABCs. We have our second cruise booked for Feb 2022 on the millenium. I was looking for Millenium reviews and came across yours & loved it. I loved your planning, I loved your story & your photos were amazing .Although on my bucket list I think reading your review has made me decide that Alaska isn't for us. Please dont take this negatively as I think it looks amazing & your review was so positive. But ...I dont like the cold...I'm not really an outdoorsy person ,I dont enjoy hiking, my husband is allergic to fish. Having grown up with my dad as a keen weekend fisherman, and not getting an option to do other things I now have an adverse dislike of fishing! So I think based on this I have decided Alaska isn't for me! Thankyou again for the review . I've binged read it over the last couple of days !
  9. Thankyou, brilliant loved reading about your cruise. Not got a cruise booked at the moment , but do have some spare time at the moment so may follow your lead and go on a 'cruise'myself 🤣🤣
  10. On our 11 night Jan cruise on the reflection there was a white party, ABBA party, 70s disco night & 2 silent discos. I'd heard about the possible white party so packed a white dress & hubby white shirt. Prob 50% wore white. Other nights people just dressed as they normally would . Read my recent review Newbie Review reflect Jan 2020 which is on here . I talk about and post videos of the various theme nights including ABBA, white & silent disco 20200125_223651.mp4
  11. Thankyou , glad you've enjoyed reading. Hope everyone gets to cruise again soon. I'm going to start planning our next one...its only 22 months away 🤣
  12. Thankyou, I think once I started writing, lots of little things came back to me...the memory is an amazing thing, and it was actually really nice for me to relive the holiday again 😊
  13. Thank you, lots of people hired golf carts in Bonaire. I did think about ..might have found more flamingos if we had ! No sadly missed seeing the floating bridge open , although I have seen a video of it, very interesting . The mine artist was funny! Hope you get to go on your cruise in March.
  14. There is a thread called 'drinks and more' where people have posted about their experience of the package which may help you Lots of people have had problems with it. I think they rolled it out but didnt tell the cabin stewards who were confused about what people could have ! In the mini bar we got 2 half bottles of wine ( 1 red, 1 white - sorry cant remember which - didnt try the red - the white was okay but nothing special ) some beer, some evian water, some regular & diet coke, 2 kind bars, a mini tub of pringles and 4 mini Tito vodka. You couldnt exchange anything but whatever we used got replaced each day except the kind bars .
  15. Thankyou, glad you enjoyed the review. From the reviews I have read on the transatlantic/ repositioning cruises they sound lots of fun, and I would imagine more relaxing than ones that are port intensive ....although there are so many places I want to visit!. Sadly I think unless we win the lottery a B2B is only a dream. We live in Essex - about 50 miles North East of London. We live in a village a few miles from Colchester ( you may have heard of it it's the oldest town in England and has a lovely castle) Although it's only 40 minutes on the train we very rarely go into London. I think last year I only went twice, once for work and once to a gig. We have friends who live in Southampton and every year we go to a festival in Portsmouth which is only a few miles away. Dave was born in Essex but I was born in Yorkshire and grew up in Norfolk, so I have family all over the country.
