  2. Nope no limits to the amounts of drinks you can have each day or time between drinks!

    Ye you've done the right thing don't worry, it's all something new at least!

    Fourth Cruise.

    Yes definitely layers and a waterproof jacket. plus some good walking boots!
  5. I'd defiantly upgrade to the classic drinks package as that is really good. With regards to the premium one it just depends if you want to drink in the martini bar and have a few extras such as champagne. You can always look at the list on board and decide on there.
  6. I was flying to Sri Lanka to do some volunteer work after the tsunami. My Mum has always been very supportive of my travels but this time she had expressed her concerns and made me research on the Tamil Tigers (For those who aren't aware who these are, these are a terrorist group in northern Sri Lanka. But me being me I still went ahead and booked flights there! We were almost there and the captain said 'we are making a diversion to another airport as the Tamil Tigers have taken over the airport' My mum's words were ringing in my head at this point! Myself and my friend looked at each oth
  7. watch out for hippos!!
  8. argh sounds a lovely itinerary!
  9. Yep! It's happened to me quite a few times whilst I was backpacking around the world! The first time it happened to me my friend and I had flown from a rainy New York to Memphis where they were experiencing a heat wave! We had to wait over 24 hours for our luggage to arrive with only jeans and a top to our name and it was boiling outside! Another time was when I flew from Seattle to Las Vegas. This time I had travelled in a dress and so as soon as we got to Vegas we just went straight out and got drunk! Then when we got back to our hotel our backpacks were waiting for us :-) So that wasn't
  10. This is great to see, thank you... Before now I would have never thought to book an obstructed balcony and would have opted for the clear views. Having seen this I will certainly consider an obstrusted view balcony in the future
  11. When we sailed from Harwich we stayed the night beofre in Harwich in a hotel and then drove to the port in the morning and parked next to the ship just like you do in Southampton.
  12. Of the speciality restaurants whilst we were on Anthem we ate in Chops Grille a couple of times, Jamies Italian and Wonderland. I would have usually eaten in Izumi too as sushi is my favourite food but I was pregnant whilst on board and so it killed me every time I walked past that I couldnt have any!! So go there and let me know what it's like!! I have eaten in Chops Grille a few times and it was just as good as it usually is but I would still say you have to try Wonderland, it's a great experience!
  13. I think food wise, Murano on Celebrity Solstice was one of my favourtites. However, experience wise Wonderland wins it for me!
  14. Which cruise company do you think has the best speciality restaurant? I have recently been on Anthem of the Seas and went to Wonderland, it was amazing! I would have to say it beats any other speciality restaurant I have been to on a ship!
  15. Oh I really miss independance day! I used to work at a camp in New York in the summer and 4th July was a huge event. We'd have a bbq, water slides, water carnival, parades, we all used to dress up and have out face painted. then one the kids were asleep the liquer would come out and we'd have a party whilst watching the fireworks over New York. One year it was my day off and so we went into the NYC that was brilliant. The fireworks were fantastic! As for my favourtite place in the USA, I have travelled to 34 states and each one is very different and unique! Love them all!! Don't think I c
  16. haha I have done Italy a few times and it is lovely. My Dad got married in a castle in lake garda which was beautful. We flew to rome the day after we got enganged actually which was very romantic :-) I travelled around the world backpacking for 4 years so we were trying to find something a bit different for our honeymoon hence the alaskan cruise with a few weeks travelling around the usa and we definately made the right choice was amazing!! As I used to live in nyc I really wanted to pay a visit before we flew home so it all tied in well! thanks for everyones help :-)
  17. So we did Alaska for our honeymoon and it was amzing! did one or two excursions every day all fantastic! we speant 4 weeks travelling the USA and did the cruise in the middle and it was wonderful. We did it with celebrity and I would recommend them to anyone!

    We booked on Anthem the first day it went on sale as thought it would sell very quickly. But our cruise is still on sale and its only in a few weeks!
  21. We pack together. Usually put some music on and get it done as quick as we can!
