    CELEBRITY CRUISES-HEARING AND SIGHT HANDICAPS

    Response to ewkcpa. No, I am not going to "slam" you for your comments. I have not been able to understand what is spoken on TV nor in the Celebrity Silhouette theatre or Celebrity 4 Theatre because of my severe hearing loss. The closed captioning does not, in fact, interrupt, nor change the...

    CELEBRITY CRUISES-HEARING AND SIGHT HANDICAPS

    First of all, I want to thank all those who have contributed suggestions on what I should have done before my cruise and what I should do in the future. I finally met with Hoda, the manager, and the technician tonight. They explained what happened and why I am not seeing the captions on the TV...

    CELEBRITY CRUISES-HEARING AND SIGHT HANDICAPS

    I understood Celebrity Silhouette being in the Solstice Class should be able to display captions on the TV screen even when crossing oceans. I was not aware that captions require signals from satellites. I decided to take another look at various TV channels on the TV now that we are in the...

    CELEBRITY CRUISES-HEARING AND SIGHT HANDICAPS

    One more point. When I went back to Customer Service, I had asked them if they would provide the Demand movies that require a payment to watch pay per view movies free of charge. They refused to allow me to watch the pay per view movies free of charge saying I must pay for such movies. I...

    CELEBRITY CRUISES-HEARING AND SIGHT HANDICAPS

    The cruise ship Celebrity Silhouette may be a Solstice class ship, but I will state captions never showed up in all the TV channels. And never showed up in the Free Demand movies never mind being available in all statement rooms across the fleet. I asked to speak to Hoda, the manager, but...

    CELEBRITY CRUISES-HEARING AND SIGHT HANDICAPS

    Answering Carrie Livingston, I was not aware that Neil is a travel agent. I will need to keep that in mind to specifically send a message to Special Services prior to each cruise in the future. But really what does it really cost a cruise line to have at least 2 or even more ear phones on a...

    CELEBRITY CRUISES-HEARING AND SIGHT HANDICAPS

    Answering Riroon, I have sailed on other cruises. And ear phones were provided on request in the theatre, but I was not aware that one had to state the need for ear phones at least for the theatre. I also think the cruise line should provide ear phones for use in other venues as well because...

    CELEBRITY CRUISES-HEARING AND SIGHT HANDICAPS

    to have ear phones in the theatre. On my earlier Princess Cruise sailing, the cruise ship provided without my asking for ear phones prior to that cruise and thus I had assumed cruise lines would provide ear phones. I looked at it this way why wouldn't cruise lines have at least two or more ear...

    CELEBRITY CRUISES-HEARING AND SIGHT HANDICAPS

    I am currently sailing on Celebrity Cruise Silhouette from Ft Lauderdale to Southampton. I am hearing and sight handicapped along with mobility handicap. I have not been able to watch any TV or any movies on Demand, because no captions are shown on the screen. However, the TV screen in my cabin...
