  1. Hope your seas are not too rough, the smaller ships can rock and roll. Also saw there was an earthquake in LA. We had 2 tornados within 7 miles of our house in Thursday during our cruise.
  2. Our 1st cruise was Zenith in 1997
  3. We just disembarked yesterday so I can't remember all the questions asked but here is my experience. The 1st time we applied points and a cruise was cancelled the points were added back to our BOA account. The 2nd time we applied points as a price reduction to a cruise that was subsequently cancelled. At the time the points were applied we received a confirmation from Celerity showing all the info, including a transaction ID #, which I printed out. When the cruise was cancelled I expected the points to be posted back to our BOA account but was told they did not do that anymore and the points would be applied to a cruise when we were ready through Celebrity. There used to be a question in the FAQ with a phone # and extension to call. When we were ready to reapply the points that question was removed. We ended up going through the Retreat Desk and the reduction was applied that day. It shows up on your booking confirmation as code V037. It might take a bit of digging but you should not have lost the points. They are sitting out there somewhere in your Celebrity account but you need to call to have them applied.
  4. This was introduced pre Covid, but not in 2014, and I doubt they will go back, as long as the Cost Guard approves.
  5. That was me, not being able to see over the life jacket, especially going down the steps. I still have masks that I cannot see over. I was so glad when they changed it.
  6. Back in the day, 1997 up until about 2002 Celebrity required you to line up outside at your muster station with your life jacket on.
  7. We just disembarked Edge from the PH suite. Understand approximately 925 guests, 200 were in Suites. Suite capacity is 300 - 350 on Edge. We ate in all the specialty restaurants. We tried to get a reservation at Eden on the 1st evening chic night. Reservations were available but our PRH could not get a guarantee of a window seat and he was afraid we would be "put in a corner" so we went to Luminae. We were given a beeper that went off in about 5 minutes. The only other time Luminae was busy was on the last evening but we were seated right away.
  8. Thanks. I got an fooer of 200 on 500 for RC but celebrity was excluded. We've been able to take advantage of the offer by making a payment on an existing cruise.
  9. No, the ones sold by Walgreens, at least in our area, are not the HOME TEST kit that is monitored by a telehealth company. If you get the ones at Walgreens you still have to have a professional monitor it and provide written, and not hand written, results. Better to order the kits through Celebrity.
  10. I'll have an answer in 10 days. Wish it was going to be longer.
  11. We booked a south bound cruise on Millennium. We want to spend a few days pre cruise in Seward. Would go to Denali but I'm not sure the park road will be repaired by then and the short trip is not worth it. Booked a refundable deposit. The price is more but I've moved a few cruises so it is worth it.
  12. Anyone remember the aqua suites on reflection that were reclassified? What sails around comes back on the next wave.
  13. Our CVP called us last night during dinner and we are booked for an Alaska cruise in 2023. She hinted that this might be coming. We were hoping for a booking on board on our Saturday cruise so we might rebook on board for the additional OBC.
  14. Ship: Length of Cruise: 7 nights Cruise Sail Date: October 16, 2021 Date email offer received: September 26, 2021 Captain’s Club Tier Elite + Booked through Celebrity Direct OR via TA: Celebrity Direct Current Cabin: Royal Suite Bid? Yes/No: Yes If YES - Bidding Details: Cabin Category: Penthouse Suite Bid Offer: $3360 total Notification Date: October 12, 2021 Accepted / Rejected Accepted General Comments We submitted a very weak offer and increased it a little but not much. The PH just became available a few days ago at almost double our bid price. We did not bid on the Iconic Suite or the Villa.
  15. Global Entry Update. I was able to update our GE passport number on line today for passports that were issued September 7. I tried last week at the 30 day mark and it did not work.
  16. @M&JfromSDL Did you find the pedicure on line to book prior to your cruise? I've been looking but nothing listed and don't want to take a chance on them being available.
  17. Call Optum and complain. Also, find their ad on social media and complain. Our 1st set of kits might be damaged and they agreed to replace them. When it was taking too long I emailed twice, called twice and finally gave a negative comment on social media. They messaged me for contact info, called me within 10 minutes and the kits were shipped overnight that day.
  18. Check in times have been all over the calendar. Reports are that you cannot check in on ships that have not sailed yet in the US. We were able to check in after final payment. All you can do is keep checking, also try the App.
  19. Is the CVS test a Rapid result antigen test? If so it is accepted. Here's a link to the Celebrity site with types of tests you can use. Health & Safety FAQs: Find Answers Online | Celebrity Cruises Another option might be at the airport.
  20. We haven't sailed on Edge yet but were escorted a few times when in a royal or penthouse suite. Reminded me of our 1st cruise in an ocean view on zenith when we were escorted to our cabin.
  21. Thanks, I send an email to the shore side concierge but have not heard back yet. Our 2nd shot was in April so we are good to go. Cruising used to be so simple, book cruise, flight, hotel, pack and make sure you have your passport and enjoy. These intermediate steps take a spread sheet to keep track of. Enjoy your cruise on Millennium. It's been several years since we cruised on her.
  22. Hi Jim, nice to be following your adventure again. Question, if you don't mind. You sail earlier that you had your booster shot. Will it be 14 days between the shot and when you board Millennium? If not, can you let us know if there is any issue. I just got a poorly worded email from Celebrity and want to make sure things are a go for us next week since we had our booster yesterday. Thanks.
  23. Thanks for taking us on this trip. One more week and it is my turn. When in our 1st aqua cabin on the 2nd part of a B2B we decided we preferred the MDR and arranged to eat there every night. About mid cruise the Maitre D of Blu came to the dining room to find out what was wrong and why we were not eating in Blu. I think they take their job very seriously and want to do what ever it takes to please you.
