  1. Unless recently reimplemented, there is no longer a UDP. The 14 night SDP is $418 PP for S and M Class ships and my understanding is that it is 14 dining experiences, lunch or dinner (with $35 max in Sushi on 5 or Raw on 5, though some have reported that they were not charged for costs above that). Pricey, but a nice savings for those who prefer to eat in the specialties every night. I wouldn't do it personally, but works for some, I guess. 🙂 Here is the price sheet: specialty dining packages.pdf
  2. People here have described not receiving any recognition despite noting special occasions on their reservations and others have received a cake and best wishes. For our anniversary, my DH went to the maitre 'd and asked about having a quiet table and a special wine the night before - I was pleasantly surprised with a window table, special wine, a lovely cake and best wishes by all. If someone wants to have them do something special, one might consider being proactive. 🙂
  3. We had a totally different KH rocker. It was nicer, IMO, but had a large footprint.
  4. I saw a picture of a CS last week that had a different type of rocker now (it looked like it had a smaller footprint) - see below from Kteacher's thread. I don't think any of the other suites had the KHR. I would buy one in a heartbeat, if they showed up on ebay. 🙂
  5. So true! I didn't even think of that - the spin worked for me....
  6. A nice round coffee table. You can get loungers upon request. 🙂
  7. They will have them meet with you in the Retreat. Very nice way to book! Just take care not to drink too much or you will be booking the Iconic suite. 😉
  8. Enjoy! We have eaten there 3 times and will be definitely book for next cruise. Loved the bone in fillet mignon (and scallop appetizer) and Ultimate Hot Fudge Sundae.
  9. It was worth every stubbed toe! I especially liked it as a lounger when they wouldn't give us one! 😉
  10. I don't know, but I have checked ebay several times and they aren't there..... I loved that rocker (I think I was one of the few who did 😉).
  11. Sorry that it was canceled! Maybe they didn't have enough people?
  12. I found this on my Cruise Planner: "Reservations for parties of 8-10 guests should email celebritydining@celebrity.com (please allow 3 business days for a response). Due to limited space, we cannot accommodate parties larger than 10 guests." You can't book specific times/restaurants until you get onboard with a dining package. If you have a package, I would make a list of which restaurants and times you want and who will be there (Names and Booking numbers) and head to the specialty dining sales area ASAP when you board to schedule them (I hand them my typed list so they can do it quickly). The good times go fast and tables for 10 may be even harder to book. You should try to board right at 11 AM, if you can. 🙂
  13. I also get excited with the glossy mailings. I have them send me the yearly large brochure (about 80 pages). The latest one just came out and can be ordered at: https://www.celebritycruises.com/company/brochures Make sure you hit the drop down and click on the "Celebrity Destinations Brochure 2020-21." My brochure from last year is dog-eared and marked up. I ordered my new one last week and should get it any day now....🙂 This is the electronic copy so you can see if you would like one. https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/8496b038#/8496b038/1
  14. We weren't in AQ, but I had a day pass. Though I enjoyed it, that cruise was more about exploring the ship and enjoying all she had to offer, so didn't spend a lot of time there. It would be nice to be AQ or have a 7 day pass for a TA or other cruise with a lot of sea days.
  15. I loved the thermal suite loungers - very relaxing and sun was welcome. It probably depends upon the weather and time of day. 🙂
