Dave and Dawn,
Have you checked the Explorer prices lately? Our cruise has had 2 price drops since booking..Whoo-Hoo! (Down a total of 260 which means more entertainment money:))
Love seeing everyones pics!
Have a great week!

Gary (AKA Cruise Director Extraordinaire) thank you for creating this forum & Mike thanks so much for the link to it!!

I agree with Mar that now we don't have to lose contact between cruises!!!
Mar did Lori book the EOS for you? I asked her yd to look at that one for October for John's BD ... would make us Platinum before the Summit!!!
Certainly hoping both you guys & Debbie book the Summit!!! Nothing like having the gang together .... Maybe Debbie can even put a bug in Mindy's ear about the Summit!!

I used the agent Gary had recommended and received OBC and dinner to a specialty restaurant. plus,have gotten 2 price breaks since then. We too will be Platinum after this cruise in September. :)

Wow- I need to pay better attention! I just came across this board.. duh...
I caught one price break and actually took a better cabin/category for our date on the Explorer Bermuda. Checked last night and prices are up about $60. I noticed many people just booking and joining that roll call so the sailing must be selling pretty well.
Added this spot to my favorites... :D

No,she didn't call me but I kept checking the prices, and when they dropped first by $100 and then another $60, I just gave her a call each time and she made the adjustments for me! :)

Debbie - I haven't transferred the Summit to a TA yet. I'm looking at some options .... We always used the same TA & I told her that other TA's have incentives that they've offered to other cruisers in the past. I'm checking with some other TA's I know personally to see what they have to offer - kind of like Ken & Gary suggested. Naturally I have Gary's person on the desk!!!

I was wondering where the "transfer" of the shipboard reservations were with everyone ..... Know Gary & Mike are set.

Mar ... good to know about the price drop & need to call the TA each time for the adjustment.

I have been using Pavlus Travel - Cheapertravel dot com since 2005 and have been very happy with them but their incentives have dropped a little each cruise. They go by the amount paid for the cruise. I got $140 obc this past cruise and for next year's it is $125 but I am paying $200 more for the cruise. I tried to get more for our group, but that was it....for 1 or 6.
I still haven't transfered.
I hate to say it but I am kind of waiting for the wedding date to be set. There are a lot of issues going on with family and where the wedding "SHOULD" be so they haven't set a date yet. If it is too close to the cruise we might have to back out....which would really bum me out at this point. But it is what it is.:( Good thing I have a little bit of time yet.

One week and we are on a plane to San Juan to go on the Summit. I WISH you all were coming with us!:) It was sooo great on the Adventure and my CC group for this cruise is really not active at all. I think I was spoiled by our group! It's been a lot colder then usual here lately so I am looking forward to the sun just wish you could all come!

FYI --- I spoke to Sarah today regarding transferring the Summit reservation to her. She has a "group" and can add my reservation with a "full deposit" to the group .... that would increase the OBC from $100 to $150.

She did say if there is a price drop ... they can usually work with that. She said we have 60 days to do the transfer .... so I didn't do it today.

I visited my TA yesterday .... and asked about transferring the Summit cruise to her, what perks would be available. Well at first she thought since her "big" agency had a group she could roll me into that & get another $75 OBC. She called later in the day to say Celebrity won't allow 2 OBC's so since the $100 from booking onboard was better than her $75 she'd stay with what I have.

HMM .... Will be going to Sarah unless anyone has better information on pricing & deals.

That is ridiculous. Of course now that I think about it, I have never booked on board and transfer it. I have booked 2 next cruises and then transfered them to my TA and have always gotten both obc's. The best I can do is $125 extra obc so you probably are good to go with Sarah, but you have to pay an additional deposit correct? (in order to get you up to whatever everyone else pays? Is that $500?)

Debbie .. that's right it will be a total of $500. But pay now or pay later .. and if I pay now I get the OBC, am added to the group & any other potential changes that come along.

Yes I agree...it really doesn't matter when you pay, it still has to be done. :rolleyes: I still haven't decided what I am going to do. I believe Gary said that there was a $40 cancellation fee, which my agency doesn't have. Of course if I wait too long she may not have any room in her (Sarah) group to add 1 more. I guess I better $#&% or get off the pot. LOL

Sooooo, I finally called Sarah. I am impressed. Her voice mail said she works until 5p and she called me at 6:20p. She wanted to make sure I was taken care of before she left. Now that's the way to start off on the right foot!!! Well done! Anyway, she will send me the form, but now that I think about it, Gary posted it somewhere, and we'll be off to the races.

Thanks Gary for sharing.:D GARY GARY GARY....just had to do that to bring back some good memories.;)

Now the kids better not plan their wedding for March or I will..........go to the wedding and not on the cruise. I think they are leaning towards June. So many issues going on with that planning process.

Unfortunately i didn't get the contract. Would you mind emailing it to me please along with the fax# and her email. That way I can just get everything done too. Since I have started this new job I don't have the time during the day. Plus I actually get to meet my boss next week. lol Worked off and on (along with old job) for 2 weeks now and still haven't met him. Never have to worry about him looking over my shoulder for sure.;) Actually he doesn't live too far from Mike and Gary. I keep hoping I'll get a trip to SC sometime and then I can go see the kids too.

Hey everyone- nice to see this thread that all "Friends of the Sea" can use. It will be great to keep in contact and I won't have to keep crashing the Summit thread. I hadn't been on for awhile and was just reading through the Summit posts since I had last been on and saw this link.

Looks like everyone is getting things straightened out for the Summit cruise. I really wish we were coming too but I'm sure our all inclusive Island vacation with our friends will be great too. I only wish we could afford to do both!

Have a great weekend everyone!

HI Susan
Good to hear from you. Hope things are warming up a bit for you. We're still waiting here. If you were on the Summit roll call you probably noticed, but we have a couple from New Brunswich......I guess they'll just have to hold down the Canadian fort for you. You will have a wonderful trip with your friends I'm sure. You'll have to let us know if Zach ever gets up the nerve. Haha I guess Ryan couldn't convince him. (I'm surprised he finally convinced himself) That's a big step!

Take care.

So, I booked on the Summit! I am sad I cannot go with you all next year, but if any of you think you want to go on the Summit in 2014, you may want to join us. We are going to go feb 8, 2014. I could not resist the obc we were given. We ended up with $250 OBC for booking a open reservation onboard and an additional $125 OBC from the travel agent. :)

By the way cruisemiles has I think 3 future Summit cruises for future cruises right now if any of you are thinking of trying them out. I just am in Love with this ship! :)

I love San Juan so much, but looking at airfare this year is has just gotten out of sight. I just hope Air Tran comes through for me. I really don't want to have to drive more than and hour for a flight.

Glad you liked Metzgers! We found it by accident! And I agree about not wanting to be cured from my cruise addiction!

Kind-of had a bad day so reading the posts cheered me up. I got broken into today while I was at home. Ran into the guy upstairs and started screaming at him. He threw himself out of the second story window and ran. Luckily he took my broken laptop and a cheap computer. He didn't get anything else. But the best part is that the kitties are fine. More angry then scared. Hopefully they will catch him this time!

But the good news is that tommarow will be better. I have Bastian asleep in my arms and am just glad they are fine!

OMG!!! How scary!!! I can't even imagine how freaked out I would be. I am glad you and the kitties are all safe. You are so lucky he didn't hurt you. Guess he was just after stuff he could unload quickly for drug money. Scumbag! I do hope they catch him. I hope your day is better today.:D

Elle- Very sorry to hear you were broken into! And while you were home. that is even more scary I think. Hope they get him.

On a happier note, I love your new addition. He is beautiful!! I love orange cats.

Glad you and all your kitties are fine.

CruiseAholics .... JetBlue has the prices out for our upcoming cruise!!! We booked our NONSTOP flights between Hartford, CT & SJU .... got our room at the Marriott Stellaris for 3/7/13 -3/9/13.

Hope those waiting on JetBlue have as good an experience as we did .... See you at Raice's on 3/8/13 for dinner!

Now to begin looking at what we'll book for March 2014!!! OOPS ... we are thinking of an October 2013 too!

Has anyone looked at or potentially decided on a spring 2014 cruise yet?

I have "saved" a few already! The "future/next booking certificates" .... can that be applied if I book onboard in March ... I have an existing one with RCCL?

So some of the Quantum of the Seas was very impressive ... not as big as the Oasis & Allure .... BUT no description of size otherwise that I heard.

Will leave from NY/NJ ... so since it must go under the bridge could it be Adventure/Explorer size?

Any ideas/ thoughts .....
Itineraries?????
