  1. We have always chosen all 4 perks. In the past Celebrity's cost on that upgrade on the cruises we book is $630. The TA I used often discounts that $630 by 50%, so it's a great deal. Now looking at cruises into winter 2020/2021, I have no interest in paying over $5,000 for a basic balcony cabin on a 7 night cruise. $700+ per person per day with convoluted pricing has lost its appeal and we will look at other options. We are staying at the Ritz on Maui for 8 days with a large F&B credit, air included, over Thanksgivings for less than these cruises. Pass!
  2. These are a bit of a head scratcher.... "Perks Extra" is $449pp so for a grand total of $898 you get $100 worth of specialty restaurant credit $300 in shore excursion credits $358 in value for 2 unlimited internet plans $??? whatever the a la carte price is for the 12 photo package Assuming the price for the photos is around $140 it's a wash. They have the "Total Retail Price" at: $480 for Perks....................your price $383 $655 for Perks Extra...........your price $449 $843 for Premier Pass....... your price $535
  3. This is the only document floating around so far. As learned from Equinox hiccps, plans are subject to much change up until the very end of dry dock so I would use it as a teaser and nothing more. overview.pdf
  4. A deposit is definitely not required. I just did a hold last night. All I did was navigate away from the page where I provided my personal info and I got the pop up box to place the cabin on hold or abandon the booking.
  5. Celebrity stopped using Labadee because of passenger feedback that they didn’t want another beach day. I didn’t mind stopping there. It was an easy relaxing day. I do hope that Celebrity doesn’t mirror RC in their fascination with private stops. RC ships already feel like a Six Flags or a bad outlet mall. I’d rather the ports not have that same feel too
  6. Essentially yes. If you were standing on deck 12 midship on Silhouette you would be in the pool. If you were standing in that same spot deck 12 onReflection, you would be standing in a cabin.
  7. It's not an entire extra deck. Reflection has the pools on deck 14. Silhouette has pools on deck 12. Reflection has additional cabins on deck 12 where the pool is located on Silhouette. The pool deck itself was brought up a deck on Reflection. If you look at pictures you can see on Reflection the jogging track and lawn are on the same deck. On Silhouette, you would need to go up a flight of stairs to access the lawn from the track.
  8. On Equinox the pool is on deck 12 with the buffet on 14 (no 13). Reflection has the pool and buffet on the same level which is deck 14. Reflection deck 12 is all cabins until the spa and gym area starts forward. Under the pool area is where the 'extra' deck exists. I actually like the setup of Reflection the best. The total count of 17 decks for either ship isn't correct since there is no deck 13.
  9. You need to take the week off. There is no room in the gym. I highly doubt you would be able to casually round up people to participate, or staff allowing it to happen even if you did.
  10. Entirely possible. That itinerary only runs twice during the winter season from San Juan, so it's more unique than the standard 7 night offerings out of San Juan. The 9 night ABC island routes from Fort Lauderdale are always expensive and seem to fill up early. With Silhouette being out of service during January into February, the 9 night ABC runs 3 times from Jan-March. It's also a little bit late in the game to book for optimum prices.
  11. Feb 11 is now missing from most websites. When it was posted for sale, maybe 1/3 of cabins were available. I wouldn't be surprised if they used it as a travel agent/social media cruise like they have done in the past. Feb 14 still looks like business as usual. We are on Feb 14 and have backup plans, just in case. I won't be canceling that cruise until final payment is due.
  12. With your distain for anything LGBT and "LLP" why on Earth would go continue to cruise on Celebrity or post on this site? Move on.
  13. On a Caribbean cruise the (former) Solstice Deck was frequently completely full.
  14. Celebrity considers it 30% obstructed. Here is the VR tour of the balcony and view: http://thecelebritycommitment.com/360/Staterooms/360_VT_6254_Obstructed/index.htm
  15. Princess has their Sip 'n Sail promo running right now which they only do once or twice a year. Looks like Celebrity needed to up the ante a bit.
