    love holidays especially cruising,
    Celebrity is favourite cruise line,
  1. Years ago we did an Airtours cruise that went into Havana, what a lovely city, yes it was faded and needed renovation but lovely non the less. We felt safe wandering around the city and when we got lost we never felt threatened. It will be nice to go back to revisit, hope everyone else who goes enjoys it as we did
  2. Hi, we switched using this system over a year ago, we moved to Santander and we didn't have any problems, Apparently the outgoing bank forwards any transactions to your new account for 3 months before sending back to whomever, hope this helps, I am sure that some people may say otherwise, as its all electronic things can sometimes go wrong.
  3. Hi We did this tour quite a few years ago when we were a lot fitter. It is well worth it, you get to go to the very top of the crater and look down into the volcano, and then it was still smoking. The views are amazing and the air clean, Hope you enjoy it.
  4. Big thank you to Celebrity and all the security guys who kept us safe during the 3 nights of L.O.V.E. (lights out virtually everywhere). A tanker following 3 hours behind us was taken by the pirates,
  5. I agree, good video, also visited several times including old building. Always a warm welcome. thank you Bolsover
  6. My husband and I were also on this cruise, we knew the ship was going to dry dock this weekend and not to look too hard at the ship itself. However the food had improved greatly since January. Yes they could have had a couple more ports but the reason we close it was gor Suez and Jordan and neither disappointed. Looking forwArd to seeing what the differences will be, Chief Housekeeper stated nothing was bring left untouched!!
  7. Hi try the Hop On Hop Off bus to cover a lot of the sights and then go back to spend more time at those you like the look of. However, the Gardens on the Bay are lovely to spend half a day at as is the Botanical Gardens but they are at opposite sides of the city to each other. The flyer is also amazing. If you get the chance try the Night Zoo, they take you around the zoo in trams and then you get to wander at your leisure, you see all the nocturnal animals waking up, this is one of the most recommended tours. Finish off with your Singapore Sling at Raffles.
  8. We try to book our own flights for Europe as they work out cheaper, we book cruise and transfers from the company then we get to pick the airport and fly direct.
  9. Good afternoon all We were on Celebrity Constellation that has just transited Suez back to the Mediterranean, We followed Queen Mary. My question is, was anybody from this forum on the QM and if so, would they have any photos of Constellation following them. Would they like to swap as I have quite a few from mooring at the entrance, transiting through and out to the open sea again. Hope someone can help
  10. Hi, if the cost difference is around £100 or less then try Aqua, if you don't like the food in Blu then go to the MDR, there is no restriction. Blu is a very nice and relaxed dining room and that in itself is worth the extra. The staff have more time for you and its not like eating on a conveyor belt. The portions are smaller too than the MDR and the food is tasty. (I am not mean but wont pay more than £100 each for the upgrade which is why we are not travelling Aqua at the moment but should prices fall then we will change)
  11. We saw a similar thing on Celebrity Equinox a couple of years ago, security sat outside a cabin, it was again drink and 2 rowdy drunk Brits unfortunately, the male supposed to be a councillor too!!. They were certainly quieter after that incident and had a lower profile thank goodness. They were menaces
  12. If you are going on Celebrity and have a drinks package included it would depend on the what your usual tipple is, I love martinis and so upgrade to premium and for £9.99 a day upgrade I also get sparkling water (of which I drink a lot). I don't have to stop and think about what to drink or have to resort to trying to blag a drink from the barman (putting him in a bad position, something we have witnessed several times). Your money your choice but enjoy whatever you choose.
  13. In Aqua you get a daily jug of fruit tea, a full power shower with several jets to aim at your body, extra toiletries, "2" hairdryers, a footstool for each chair on the balcony, priority delivery of luggage. They have however stopped the bottle of fizz you used to get (cost cutting). If you use the Persian Garden and sauna's then the cabins are conveniently situated near them (we didn't use). However you get your own dining room Blu. the menu is lighter variation on the menu in the MDR, but you still get the usual standard options and should you require something from the MDR menu they will get it for you. Blu is also open for breakfast and makes a change from the usual scrum in the Oceanview café. We did get bored with the food though and the last cruise and next few cruises are in the MDR. Please note they don't have their own lounge that is for suites. If you get the opportunity at not too much cost try it but I would not pay the difference they have at the moment.
  14. there is a very good tour that goes behind the scenes at the Doges Palace, you book online approx 1 month beforehand, (they only do a few tours per day) it was recommended to us and now we recommend to others, its well worth it. Walk on the ceiling in the ballroom, behind the panelling in the council chamber, Casenovas cell and through the bridge of sighs.
  15. http://www.cruisemapper.com/wiki/708-royal-caribbean-alcohol-policy-drink-prices this is a link that shows Royal Caribbean pricing from 2015, yes a bit out of date but shows all drinks and pricing and the 4 packages they offer. hope this helps
