I have to admit that, in all of the blogs that I've read, I never saw one that bracketed Celebrity with NCL! I've never sailed with NCL, but from the feedback that I've received from dozens of past...

In most cases, the cost of transfers is a joke! Taxi fares can't be much. The distance between the airport and cruiseport can't be more than two miles. I bet that the taxi is cheaper.

CruiseQuick is a good, legitimate agency. However, if you're nervous about communicating thru email, and you need a lot of "hand holding", you might be more comfortable with someone else. I've used...

Re: $99 Southwest Airline Special or book thru cruise..

Go Southwest. I always fly Southwest, unless they don't go where I'm going. Shuttle service is readily available from Seattle to Vancouver and back.

Re: online booking

That depends. There are dozens, ranging from some where the agent will take you thru the entire process, hold your hand, and answer dozens of questions, to at least one where you have to know exactly...

Re: Zenith - The Puzzler

26 letters of the alphabet.

Some of the others are more difficult.

Work on them. The answers will come to you.

Re: Re: Pre-existing condition? Where is it?

I'm glad that you asked about the name of the insurance company. I'm more than willing to pass it along as a non-recommendation:

The name of the company is Trip Assured, Inc., from Crossville,...

Re: cruisequick.com

Excellent company. Responsive, and their prices usually beat other companies. Don't buy your travel insurance from them, though.

Re: Re: Cheated by your insurance Co?

In my particular case, the entire policy sent to me consisted of a six page, 3-12" by 5-1/2" pamphlet. The company's "rationale" for trying to cheat me out of $1000 is that, when I called them 19...

One on Carnival, and in most cases, the men wear suits, rather than tuxes.

Re: Re: Re: cruisequick.com?

I can't quite agree with you. I've gotten a quote from cruisequick, and brought it to best price, and they couldn't match it. They did, however, tell me why (that is, inability to talk to a human,...

Re: Getting Nervous

If it really worries you, you probably still have time to cancel without penalty, but I'm with the others in urging you to go. The odds are certainly with you, and you'll have a great time.

You might want to mention the premium that you pay for this exclusivity, so they're not too stunned when they get a quote.
