  1. The menus are just place holders until about 30 days out.
  2. Told Celebrity of my 60th birthday and was invited to a sail a way, received a cake at dinner and received a bottle of wine with a birthday card in our stateroom on on the same day. My wife's birthday basically got the same thing when we traveled. We received the sail a way on the following day which was unexpected. we always tell them about special occasions. We will be doing our wedding anniversary next year while on board the solstice for 58 days.
  3. I just called Celebrity yesterday about a price change and my reservation was booked one year ago. I got the price reduction and they did not try and charge me the $14pppd charge. My only difference is I always call Celebrity Captains Club for price and excursion rates and explanations.
  4. TA's are great for group bookings. Not so well on Suites or even AFT Cabins. They book quantizes and most times not even the best locations. I've called numerous ones and they tell me the same thing...I book for location and for whatever reason they do not get access to the locations I want and they have issues booking b2b's. I booked 5 b2b's and no TA would or could deal with it.
  5. Not sure reported it but each year I email Celebrity and receive a written email that states you are allowed on b2b's to purchase wine and have it returned to you on the last night of each cruise. We are doing 5 b2b's and always buy local wine to drink onboard. Never has been an issue..
  6. Mast Grill usually some small bags of Lay's potato chips.
  7. Glad that everyone gets an opinion and now we know yours. Will be doing 5 cruises starting in March and I’ll do the bid up for the Sky suite for each cruise. Can’t wIt for 58 days aboard the Solstice.
  8. My friend won a bid from Concierge to Sky Suite and it was under the pool deck. He did 14 days and never heard a squeak. I’ve talked to others that say they had moved from an aft cabin because of noise and cigarette smoke that bothered them. Kinda of surprised by that but I understand the smell of cigarettes. Wonder why they don’t insulate that aft cabins for. Lise like they do the suites.
  9. Yes, by not paying you can call anytime and they can reduce your fare for you. The fares stated on the website are usually higher then what they charge.
  10. The transfers are done by Celebrity and not the hotel. They know nothing other than they will have buses arriving to take guests to a Celebrity ship. Had a horrible experience last year at the Crown Plaza In Rome. Missed the Concierge lunch do to the late bus arrival at the hotel. Celebrity gave us $400 for future cruise, paid for a fee meal in Murano and invited us to three sail a ways.
  11. Have a lot of friends that keep wanting me to get a sky suite. There really aren't any bad locations. I've bid a few times and never won. Ill keep trying. Usually have Aqua and want to try Luminaire. In my mind Blu has gone down in quality and now a days and the tables are too close to each other.
  12. If so then you were lucky. The kitchens were split apart so that food in BLU would get delivered better. The main kitchen in now for the MDR and the buffet.
  13. You can only order off the MDR if the ship has not been revolutionized. At that point they are separate kitchens. You'd have to plead your case to a waiter to walk to get your specified order. Had friends try it and they were told no.
