    Consequences for being late?

    I have witnessed 3 women left in Naples. The Ventura was just leaving the quay side as they came running round the corner. We did not stop. If the place to visit is not in the port e.g. Rome and Florence I would rather pay the extra and go on admittedly a more expensive trip with the cruise line. I have also been in the bar waiting for one of Celebrity's own trips late back from Sorrento. No fuss. Just zap their cards. X-Ray their bags. Equipment moved. Wall put back and off we go. What price can be put on peace of mind.

    What rocks your boat?

    I want outstanding customer service. Exceptional dining. Cleanliness throughout the ship. I could live without a casino. I enjoy the large ships as there is always something to do. I definitely want an adult only area that I do not have to pay extra for!

    Russia

    Does anyone know of any private tour companies who are reputable and cheaper than Celebrity. Seems a long way to go to stay on the ship!

    Russia

    I have booked a Baltic cruise for July 2017 and wondered if anyone had any tips for St Petersburg. I have heard you need a visa if you want to get off the ship on your own. I'm happy to pay for one organised trip with Celebrity but not happy paying 300 quid each for 3 days.

    Istanbul

    I have just returned from an 11 night cruise that was supposed to have an overnight stay in Istanbul. 2 weeks before we were set to sail we were emailed to say it was not going ahead for security reasons. This was disappointing enough (as Istanbul was the reason I booked this cruise) but finding out they are still offering several other cruises for next year to Istanbul has ticked me off somewhat. I would have thought if they remove it for a cruise already booked they would remove it for future cruises. Anyone got any thoughts on this.

    Celebrity Drinks Packages?

    I have just returned from Celebrity Reflection. We have always thought the drinks packages expensive for moderate drinkers. However this year it was part of the deal (I won't say free) and found it very useful. It was the classic package but found it met all our needs. Fresh orange juice, soft drinks, bottled water, beer, plus wine every evening and shorts. Instead of a $500 drinks bill, we have nothing to pay on our return as we stuck to what was on offer. It really was not a problem, plus we did think they would be quite tight with the drinks, particularly wine in the restaurant, but no. If they were a little slow topping up our glasses, we just asked and the quality customer service kicked in. My husband was even allowed two shorts in the same glass, which surprised us both. I don't think I would like to go on a cruise without it now, so the marketing strategy has worked!
