Default Booking Confirmation

Hello. I am very impressed that Celebrity continues to visit Cruise Critic. Thank you for taking the time. I love Celebrity have booked all my cruises directly through celebritycruises.com. I choose not to use a travel agent.

Once a guest books a cruise with Celebrity, they cannot see onboard credit, discounts, etc., anywhere in the guest’s reservation, “mycelebrity”, or in the online booking information. The only way to actually confirm/see this information is by calling Customer Service to request a copy of the "Booking Confirmation - Guest Copy". Why can’t that information be tied to the reservation and link to the guest’s online booking information the way that other cruise lines do? It is like opening an account at a bank that does not offer online banking or paper statements forcing the customer to call customer service every time they want to see their checking account balance. It is not a very “modern” approach.

Providing this information online would save your customer service reps time and vastly improve the experience for your guests who choose to book online. It seems like a basic thing that should be made available on the website.

Thanks-Ken

I agree with the OP that seeing OBCs, etc should be possible via the website. Most of your competitors have a way to see this information online. As an alternative, if we could at least have an option on the web site to send ourselves a booking confirmation via email it would help avoid tying up your customer service agents.

Completely agree. I would also suggest you stop using those stupid codes that are impossible for us to guess. Why use a code for OBC? It would be so much easier to have Early Booking OBC, Miami Customer Service OBC etc. Some are listed per person and some for the room. It really annoys us that we cannot see the OBC on our my celebrity link. Even the reservation department gets confused and has confirmed a different amount each time we ask.

Please try to show OBC paid for by the guest for themselves. I understand the need to keep gifts secret but if customers prefer to give Celebrity their money in advance surely there is a way to show this on their bookings after all if I buy a shore excursion that appears.
Thank you
