  10. We cruised two years ago with 12 people from Ajijic New Jersey to Barcelona was great. 10 WENT ALL THE WAY TO SHANGHAI 55 DAYS Just off cruise from Vancouver to Yokohama with 5 other people from Ajijic was great also We are booked on a cruise from Singapore April 7 to May 7 Rome, celebrity cruises ship constellation. 30 days. We are staying 7 days in Singapore before we board. The price is right, Its a re-positioning cruise Its fun to cruises with others from AJIJIC and DINE together. call your agent for pricing. Wayne and Maureen
  11. more info celebrity cruises has a cancellation policy were you get 100% for your deposit back if you cancel before 90 days before the cruise departs. so you can lock in the price, and call in if it drops for lower price, this way yo locked your cabin choice and then see if you can find airfare and hotels to meet your needs. celebrity created a web site for getting good prices on airfare and guarantees if you use their CHOICEAIR if the plane is delayed they will get you on the ship. http://www.espresso.cruisingpower.com/choiceair/protected/home.do?brand=C see above link to search fares. Many times I find it easier and lower price to fly to US by volaris or interjet then pick up a flight in los Angeles. i have found difficult using choiceair or other service to get a direct flight from Europe to Guadalajara at a fare price. Thus using a stopover point in USA CHOICEAIR had a great flight for me back from japan, to Guadalajara. it appears united airlines opened up a new route from japan to Houston. it was $794. see link above to choiceair to search airfares
