  1. I'm also from Seattle. We did a 7 night cruise to Astoria, OR, San Francisco, and Victoria B.C. last fall on the Explorer out of Seattle. Great trip and the weather that time of year in S.F. was amazing. Now that the Ovation has replaced the Explorer I don't see it offered, but I would definitely do that one again.
  2. You might also look into the ten day Vancouver to Hawaii itinerary on the Ovation of the Seas. I think it sails In September. You really can’t go wrong with any of the sailings if you have nothing prior to compare it to. Enjoy! And safe travels!
  3. Thanks everyone for the great feedback! We're leaning toward the Mediterranean cruise since Florence is one of the places right out of high school that I have always wanted to visit. All of your great feedback is going into making this decision or us though so I really do appreciate you all taking the time to share your thoughts!
  4. My wife and I are planning a cruise for September 2020. Our choices are a ten night cruise from Vancouver BC to Hawaii (one way) on Ovation or a 7 night round trip Western Mediterranean out of Barcelona with stops in France and Italy on Allure. Cost with travel is roughly the same for both and we’ll be getting an outside balcony. What we don’t know is weather, travel to Europe (we’re in Seattle so Vancouver is local for us), and whether ports of call should sway us one way or the other. Any veterans out there that can help us decide? thanks in advance.
  5. At Emerald level and higher the benefits also transfer to Celebrity Cruises. You don’t accumulate C&A points while on Celebrity (which is kind of dumb imo) but you do get the benefits.
  6. They serve Mimosa's, Bloody Mary's, and Bailey's with Coffee in the Windjammer for breakfast for those who want to start early. Ummmm... that's what I heard.
  7. I guess it depends on the room configuration. We sailed on the Explorer with three adults in a cabin, one person was using an electric scooter as well, and didn't feel all that cramped. Two twin beds on the floor and one loft pulled down from the ceiling each night. We worked around the scooter as much as possible and didn't spend all that much time in the room anyway so it worked out for us.
  8. I never thought about making it competitive! Love this idea, thanks!
  9. We have a large family cruising on the July 13, 2019 Symphony OTS sailing and I want to organize a bar crawl for one afternoon at sea and a week-long scavenger hunt of photos taken around the ship. Has anyone participated in either of these kinds of activities in the past? If so, any pointers or suggestions on how to organize or make the activity bigger or better? For the Bar Crawl - we'll have a checklist of about ten or so bars on the ship, travel together from bar to bar and enjoy a beverage, then on to the next. I'll try to organize by deck but I know from past cruises some bars ma
