  1. Greetings from Bonita Springs Florida! We are Dave & Deanna and we are looking forward to enjoying New Years on a cruise. We usually sail over Christmas too however, our adult children made us promise to stay home with them and the grandkids for Christmas. Well knowing we had some FCC to use up, we found this one, on the 26th, the day after, WINNER! We are looking forward to meeting more cruise friends and enjoying this cruise. Cheers!

    It's interesting that RCI would ban smoking altogether on Celebrity cruises, which are specifically geared more towards adults, and still allow them on RC, where they're clearly targeting families. That seems counterintuitive.

    And if the reason is because then it confines the smokers to an area not meant for children anyway (the casino), I'd venture to say that effort doesn't work. On the Oasis class ships the stench from the casino leaks well into the entryway for the dining room on Deck 3. My kids wouldn't even go into the dining room entrance on 3 because they hated the smell so much -- even at 5:30!

    My Bride and I sailed on the Mariner a couple of months ago and it reaffirmed why we love Celebrity. We did have a great cruise however, even when the casino was closed there were many folks in there smoking. Our favorite hangout spot is the Schooner Bar and the stench coming from the casino was horrible most of the time. I have nothing against peoples right to choose to smoke (I quit 25 years ago but still enjoy an occasional cigar) but I prefer they do it outside.

  3. The reason I asked was, like most seasoned cruisers, (this is #29) we know that you should dress smart casual or evening chic however, on our last cruises on the Equinox we were seated by the entrance to the dining room and every night there was a minimum of 30 men dressed in shorts or swim suits, one night they let a guy in wearing cut off jeans, a tank top and wearing a giant Sombrero! So I felt like I was dressing every night for nothing. I spoke to the maître d and asked if Celebrity changed the dress code and he insisted they had not but they were not enforcing it. I think at this point they are just grateful to have passengers. I appreciate the input and think I will be packing dress shorts and a few button down shirts.


  4. My wife and I typically sail on Celebrity and we know the dress code says "No Shorts" however, on our last three cruises since the restart it was not enforced at all. My question is can anyone who has sailed RCL lately tell me if they are allowing shorts in the dining room? We are on the Mariner this weekend and only want to pack what we need. TIA
