  1. Booked last week for 2023 into Discovery R731. Aft, Penthouse. No problems! The ones you are looking at must be booked already.
  2. If you book and the price drops, but no cabins in your class of cabin, they won't adjust anything. We usually receive OBC for one reason or another. I think now, since the cruise lines are struggling, it's probably impossible to get it on a new booking unless you snag it right when you first book. We use one of the Celebrity agents and he has been able to offer us OBC that we weren't aware of while looking at the web. But, those could be a thing of the past! Hope you have some success.
  3. Same here. We sailed in Aqua Class and enjoyed Blu. As for the cabin, thought it was small and not a fan of the Infinite Balcony. I just love walking out on a real balcony in the middle of the night and watching the stars on a clear night. Heck, I just love a real balcony!
  4. I think many of us have printed boarding passes only to have the cruise canceled! Use your own judgement about paying the balance. If it's not a hardship for you to invest, take a chance.
  5. I just read an article posted by NBC News, about the Covid19 vaccines. Who will get the vaccine and in what sequence? I had hoped that my number would come up in the 2nd or 3rd group. However, after reading, I worry how states will set the standards for sequencing. Also, logistics to accomplish any of this are sketchy at best. And, having to get 2 shots each, this is a nightmare! I don't see how any cruise can depend totally on a vaccine till all the details in scheduling can be worked out. I'd love to get the shots, but no idea how any of us will do this unless we are deemed "essential
  6. I guess we were lucky it all worked for us. I did read the rules and knew it would. Same ship class. Within 4 weeks of original date+a year. Same # of days. Same itinerary. But if all that isn’t possible they should be willing to do something. Just not fair. Not your fault. I would appeal it to a higher source if you can.
  7. We had that trip for Jan, 2021. Yesterday I rescheduled it for next year. The stress was getting to me over it all. Even if it does go the fact that the Covid 19 test would need to be obtained 5 days prior to sailing wasn't going to work. It's hard to schedule and we had planned to spend some days in Fla prior to sailing. For us, it was just too much. We have an Alaska trip planned near the end of the season. I'm hoping they have the details all working by then. Lift & Shift ends the end of Sept. If you plan to do this better check to see what is still available. Best of luck to
  8. We once had a party and our butler helped us deliver invitations. We enjoy the daily visits and insight on things going on, what to do, where, when. You can make special requests for your cabin. If you encounter anything you either don't understand or need help with, the butler is a great resource. I know they will pack/unpack for you but never done this. I'm sure there are a lot of other benefits but have to say that just the chatting and insights have been our favorites. The insider info can be priceless.
  9. Aqua! Love the smaller venue for meals! The food is wonderful. We have done both but only one time in Concierge. Just wasn't worth it to us. Enjoy which ever you choose!
  10. I did a L/S yesterday. I called in to do it and was really easy. The thing that bothered me on line was no place to request a specific cabin#. When I was chatting with the Celeb person, they said my same cabin was available (which I'd already looked at on line) and that is the one I have received. I'm happy! Our original cruise was for Jan! I don't want to be stressing over any of it, so the L/S was a good option. If you plan to do this program, it appears that it has to be done by 9/30/2020. We could still book a cruise for 2021 if we choose and things look better but now we are set f
  11. Thanks so much! Hadn't stayed at that class and probably won't. We could justify a suite on a lot of lines but not Haven. It is always much pricier than a typical suite.
  12. Thank you 4774Papa! I love all the little insights! And, beyond the itinerary, it's all those little things that you remember about any cruise! The one thing we are loving about being in a suite on Celeb is the small dining experience. We just don't want to pay for the specialty restaurants or worry about booking times. We stop in the Retreat lounge for a drink and then dinner in Lunminae at the same times as others. It's so easy to get to know a wonderful group of people. But, having said all that, we agree that we don't like to keep doing the same itineraries. So we would have to giv
  13. We have enjoyed all 3 for different reasons. I do think that Celebrity is my favorite for service & food. After you cruise on one line for a while the itineraries seem stale. We have done a lot of the ones we really wanted to do on Celeb. My reason for looking at different lines to to expand the options. We always loved the entertainment on NCL. Actually, we have loved all 3. I guess since it's been so long to cruise NCL we wondered what changes might have taken place in the quality we remember from 8 years ago. I get the feeling that things are still good! There are a couple of
  14. My thanks to you all. A lot of great advice and opinions. Much appreciated
  15. Thank you. Means a lot to have your comparisons. I had thought it would be like that. As we get older and more seasoned we like the little differences and luxuries! We love the private siding room and club lounge. Probably will just wait on Celebrity to post 2022.
