  1. For the first 4 months of this year, 2 perks were offered for oceanviews and above (Go Better). Then it switched to dollars off, and one perk (Go Big). I bet you that maybe in September or October, 2 perks will be offered, but without the dollars off. The promotions constantly change, and it is hard to keep up!

    Sky Suite size differences?

    Don't you get noise from the Oceanview above?
  4. I am going to book a corner aft sky suite on the Reflection. Are there differences in the sizes of the balconies? If some balconies are larger, are the cabins then smaller? Thanks! There are a number of them available on different decks.

    January Cruise, prepay tips?

    I'd do it now - looks like they are going up. As you get ready for your upcoming cruise, we wanted to let you know that we've updated our daily gratuity rates. The new rates will be applied to all sailings from 2 January 2018 onwards. Anyone booked prior to 2 January 2018, will have until the time of their sailing to pay their gratuities at the old rate. If you've prepaid your gratuities, you will not be effected by this price change. If you've not yet prepaid your gratuities, you can still pay the original rates by prepaying them before 2nd January 2018. If you pay your gratuities on board, you will pay the new rates. New Gratuity Rates: • Interior, Ocean View and Balcony staterooms will change from $13.50 to $14.50 per day, per guest. • Concierge Class and AquaClass® staterooms will change from $14.00 to $15.00 per day, per guest. • Suite Class accommodations will change from $17.00 to $18.00 per day, per guest. Gratuities are shared by our exceptional onboard dining and culinary services team, stateroom attendants, other housekeeping services personnel, as well as staff from other departments who work behind the scenes to enhance your cruise experience. If you've already prepaid your gratuities or decide to prepay them before you set sail, you will not be charged any additional automatic daily gratuities once on board the ship. Other onboard gratuity policies remain the same: an 18% gratuity is automatically added to bar service beverages; specialty dining reservations, and mini bar items and will be itemised on your receipt.

    BA cabins on Royal Princess

    Thank you for your response!
  7. Have people that have stayed in a BA on the Royal experienced a noise issue with the lifts and stairs being so close? Thanks!
  8. Hi - we are in the same boat, so to speak. Are you on the Summit Jan 13? I am also flying to SJU on the 12th from Vancouver. I empathize! :(

    Can inside stateroom buy Go Best Package ?

    No, inside cabins can't buy Go Best. If you want that, book an oceanview or higher.
  11. Thanks for your review! We have to sail together on X again! ;) I did find I enjoyed the Royal and the Regal better, and I rocked both nightclubs. :)

    New OBC Policy for Celebrity

    When I go into the booking, I see $550 obc. When you're traveling with a friend, normally the obc is divided up. So $150 obc per person as opposed to $300 on one person from Go Best. And the booking onboard obc is normally assigned to the person that booked onboard. I haven't gone in to actually book anything as I don't need to, but is it now all pooled together so each guest can dip into it? That may cause problems when you're not dealing with a couple. Is it divided up when you go to book like it normally is?
  13. The new Savings rate that they have on right now is not combinable with Go Better. You can get one perk, but if you want two perks that are on your Future cruise, you have to pay for it with the Savings Rate. You have to see if the Savings rate with one perk is better or worse than paying for that second perk.
