Default Concierge Class - Expanded room service breakfast menu

Can anyone tell me the difference between the regular room service breakfast menu and the "Expanded room service breakfast menu" that Celebrity says is available in its Concierge Class cabins ?

I'm particularly interested in knowing if a cooked breakfast is available in-cabin for Concierge Class or is the "expanded menu" just more cold items on a continental breakfast menu.

I love the CC expanded breakfast menu! If you do a search here it's actually been posted a few times. You can get a lot of special items, I'll try to remember a few: smoothies, french toast fingers w/marmalade butter, scrambled eggs with asparagus, omelettes, and lots of other stuff that I can't remember
Yes you can order a full hot breakfast, eggs, bacon, saugage, ham...ect

Yes you can get a cooked breakfast. There are a variety of things to choose from including eggs prepared anyway you like them, omelets, grilled vegetables, sausages, hot oatmeal, pancakes etc. We always order room service and have breakfast on our verandah. It's wonderful. Can't tell you about the regular room service menu as we have never seen one.

A cooked breakfast is available in all cabin classes. DH had bacon and eggs several times although I prefer the continental option. We haven't experienced the CC one yet, but understand it has more variety.

Default Yes you can get most typical hot breakfast items

Here is a link to a copy of a CC menu:
http://simon-pics.smugmug.com/Cruise...62767369_mHj49

The items in the first couple categories labeled "Concierge Class" are exclusive items. The rest of the menu is pretty standard items and can be ordered from any room, they'll either be on the menu or you can write them in. If you have any questions about this on board ask your room steward - they will know as often they bring the breakfast.

I also added a standard room service breakfast menu, hang card, from a recent cruise with some notes about writing in items: http://simon-pics.smugmug.com/Cruise...38449448_AykqC

One of the things DH and I enjoyed the most in CC class was the fresh squeezed orange juice and grapefruit juice for breakfast. Such a treat.

Default I agree about the orange juice

The freshly squeezed orange juice is a surcharge item up at the deck 10 restaurant -- and what about in the main dining room? -- but it's standard in CC room service breakfast.

We tried the baked bananas, and I loved the yogurt berry parfait, which was huge.

Mr. B. preferred going to deck 10 or to the MDR for his bagel, lox and cream cheese. If you order it in the room, the bagel is often not toasted as you would prefer. They might not give you as much purple onion as you like.

What a life!

Sometimes you need to be very specific in what you write down on the room service card. I'm not a lox person but I do write in that I want my bagels toasted and they then come that way.

I would never eat a non-toasted English muffin.

Nor would I willingly eat a non-toasted bagel.

To each his own. Or her.

Have a great time, and I love the "ain't life grand" comment. I'll be driving by Ellenton on Thursday. I'll wave at you!

Default Didn't Have Expanded Menu on Century

On our Pacific Coastal cruise on Century at the end of September, we had a Concierge cabin but did not have the expanded menu the one time we ordered breakfast. There was no printed menu in our room, and our TV menu was a pretty poor standard one. We probably could have called Room Service, but it was late at night, so we just went ahead and ordered from the standard menu. What we got was not very good and it arrived more than half an hour earlier than we had ordered (surprise wake-up call!). If we had wanted to order again, we would have pursued getting the right menu. So...check your menus before you might want to do the actual ordering and make sure you have the right ones.

Out of curiosity, should we have had a printed menu or should the CC menu have appeared on our TV ordering menu?

The breakfast menus for hanging on the door and the pillow menu are in the large black information binder that should be in your cabin. If you can't find it, ask your room steward to provide one for you. YMMV but that is where we always found them

On all our cruises, the breakfast menu cards have always been inside the blue X book on the desk.

But if they are missing, just ask your stateroom attendant or butler and they will surely get them for you. Also, as previously mentioned, if you want something that is not listed on the menu you can write it in and they will deliver it if they have it available.

We love having breakfast on the balcony each morning (one of the features of taking a cruise that we most enjoy), and they almost always deliver whatever we write in on the menu. The breakfast delivery phone call serves as our wakeup call.
