Presently we are booked in CC and can upgrade to Aqua for $600.00/person for a 13 day cruise. What is your opinion?We have been in both and although really liked AQ, would not spend an extra $1200 for it. There was a sale so we upgraded from our CC to AQ. For $1200. you can get a lot of dinners in the specialty restaurants, and can buy a daily pass to the persian gardens when you want to go. As far as the Aqua spa cafe, that is open to everyone. I would hold off and keep watching for price reductions.
I think you can buy a spa pass for around $100 and you can eat in a specialty restaurant every night for less than $1200!I agree! The cabins are the same size and the perks are mostly the same. You could have a lot of fun with that $1200!
I think you can buy a spa pass for around $100 and you can eat in a specialty restaurant every night for less than $1200!Agree. How soon is final payment? Can you wait until closer to that date to check for a drop? $1200 is a bit steep for an upgrade to AQ from CC in my opinion.
Thank you all! This is what we thought, too. Just don't understand the pricing structure. That $1,200 could buy us a 7 day cruise.Not in a CC-1.
I chose Aqua for our 9-night cruise. The pricing was very close, and I think BLU is something we will really enjoy. Our A1 was $100 more per person than a C3, but the C1's were $200 more per person than the A1's!The C1's on M Class have much bigger balcony's. The aft cabins are much in demand (view of wake, monster balcony's) The C1's on the Penthouse deck are wonderful as well. Great cabins.
Since the cabin sizes are the same, I thought it was odd to see Concierge Class priced so much higher than Aqua Class. My understanding (first Celebrity cruise) is that AQ gets all the perks of CC, plus the additional Aqua benefits like BLU and the spa access. It seemed contradictory to me to see a C1 that is much costlier than an A1. The only thing I can think is since the cruise is 17 months away, prices will fluctuate for a while based on demand.
