    Hi everyone:

    I just got off the phone with Corey. He actually has cell phone service on board the ship! Turns out that Celebrity has a deal with Cingular :)

    Anyway, they had a completely smooth trip out to Barcelona. Great flight - and since they told the flight attendant that it was Julie's birthday, they were giving them free drinks all the way to Barcelona! Corey said they blew thru customs in about 20 minutes and ended up the first ones to board the ship. This is Corey's first time doing a non-Disney cruise (he's on the Celebrity Millennium). Corey commented that the staterooms are noticeably smaller than Disney's, and that Celebrity is a bit more particular about their dress code than Disney is. Anyone who doesn't really 'dress' for dinner really stands out. Corey learned that just a few days before they left and had to scramble to buy a new suit for the cruise :)

    He said the ship is beautiful and so far the service seems first rate. They're at sea tomorrow then in Nice on Thursday. I'll post updates as I hear from him.

    Pete

    Thanks for the update! I hope that when they return they can do a comparison to DCL. I know other lines are wonderful too but I just haven't been able to bring myself to book something other than Disney.

    YAY!! I'm so happy to see this update. I spoke to Julie during their layover at the Philadelphia airport. She was so bubbly and excited. :banana: I've been hoping that it's been going well. :thumbsup2

    Yes Calypso, it's a double celebration. :banana: :banana:

    I'm so jealous!! Can't wait to hear of their adventures when they return!!

    DH and I are doing a cruise in a few weeks...we're doing an Eastern Caribbean itinerary and sailing aboard the Caribbean Princess. We're doing the birthdaying and anniversarying thing too! My birthday is August 31, DH's birthday is September 7, and our anniversary is September 10! Can't wait!!

    Thanks for updating us!

    I'll step up and agree that Celebrity is quite "highbrow" and dressing for dinner is a MUST. I have seen them refuse people to the dining room if they were not dressed properly.

    We had a good time with X (Celebrity) but I will admit I was nervous I was going to put my elbows on the table or make some other fatal mistake the whole time! :rotfl:

    Hope they have a great time!

    We're on the Millenium in February for 7 nights and I too am worried about the whole dress code thing. I'm looking forward to hearing about their trip. I can't wait to hear about the ship and their whole vacation. I hope their having a good time, I'm SO jealous.
