  1. WOW!! I have never received a discount. WE book with a TA . They have never ask about a military discount and I didnt have a clue. I will most definitely be asking now..
  2. Thank you ... that would be great to receive a military discount ..
  3. Does the military discount mean retired, active or veteran ?? Or all three? Thanks, Judi
  4. I do not know anything about Boston. We want to stay 2 or 3 days before our cruise. I would like to get a motel/hotel near public transportation so we could get to the HOHO. We did Uber the last trip . Don't want to do that again. So being out of Boston would be ok. I look at motels and have no idea where they are. Can anyone help with suggestions. Thanks.
  5. We had a sea day. SOOO disappointed. But Safety first... We are booked next year again , Bar Harbor has been taken off our itinerary. So sad but they have added St.John. So I guess that is better than another sea day and no extra port. I still would love to go to Bar Harbor. Checked into renting a car out of Boston or flying into Banger. Way to expensive.
  6. When we were in Victoria we went to tea at Point Ellice House. We toured the museum before tea. It was a beautiful spring day so they served tea on the lawn. The gardens were so beautiful and , right next to the Gorge Waterway. The Victoria Harbour Ferry & Water Taxi stops at Point Ellice House. There were four ladies. We loved the afternoon, so special.
  7. So glad I found this thread . Thanks to everyone of you for posting. I will differently stay away from these areas,
  8. We have gone to Alaska two times in May, no rain. Once in late July-- August. It rained 10 out of the 14 days. The islands were beautiful with the clouds lifting after the rain.. I guess I forgot about the rain because ,guess what, I booked again in the rainy season. Leaving next week. Oh well, can hardly wait to get to Alaska, rain or not. Happy cruising everyone..
  9. Thank y'all. I know where to start. Maybe someday we can make all the islands mentioned.
  10. We are finally going to the Southern Caribbean . We don't know which islands are the most popular. Would love to hear some of your opinions. What is your favorites and why? Thank you.
  11. I just can't imagine not wanting to leave the ship in any port any where. Alaska is the most beautiful state. We will be going on our fourth cruise to Alaska in Sept. Sitka-- we went to the bear sanctuary Victoria-- harbor cruise high tea on the grounds at Point Ellice House Butchart Gardens- take the public bus.. maybe two blocks from the port Anchorage- Portage Glacier Up close and Personal. they fish some of the floating ice out and let you touch it. Kodiak has a great craft fair on days a ship is in port with all kind of things made in Alaska and if you have to there is a WM with loads of cheap souvenirs. Homer take the HOHO bus. Go to the Islands and Oceans Visitors Center,,, its free , Great. Go to Two Sisters Bakery YUM If you go to Icy Straits Point .. Go on a bear hunt so much fun.. I hope this gives you some ideas ..
  12. We too are use to Celebrity cruises OBC. if we have OBC as a perk is it NR or refundable ?? I would love to book a ship tour now but I am afraid my OBC will be NR. Also can we book land tours now or on board or do we have to wait until on our land tour??
  13. Thank you.. I think the airport is out. We do have a cc with no transaction fees. We will probably just settle for using it.
  14. You are correct..I saw the info. about the meals but didn't understand it that way. I don't think it was very clear and it did not mention money.. Did you take this land /cruise tour?? We are not big eaters and do not want to eat at the hotels we will be at. Just wondering what you did about meals.. Thank you ever so much for answering this question. That would have been a blow thinking meals were paid for and finding out when we were there.
  15. Does anyone know if you can exchange the USD for Canadian Dollars while at the Vancouver airport?? We will be there three days so I think it would be nice to have canadian currency.
