  1. I always enjoy intelligent sarcasm! I see what you did here! 🤣
  2. For our children, we get OBC and Tips paid; originally, their drinks package offered was only the classic non-alcoholic and they only drink the frozen virgin drinks (which isn't covered). It's cheaper for us to pay for that out-of-pocket. DH and I get the classic (upgrade to Premium) and OBCs. We maximize the use of the drink package in all facets available. (Teas, Sparkling Water, Bottled Drinks, Premium Alcohol) 🤣 Lady_G
  3. So.... Is this going to be applied to new bookings, or should I expect to shell out $252 in November on our 9- night out of Port Everglades, for my husband and me? (Why not factor this new fee into the rate so I don't kick off my cruise already in the hole?) Thanks for the update. I had not expected to use half of my OBC towards fees that I didn't expect.

  4. Friends, A nasty rumor is going around that recently (yesterday) there was a release from Celebrity to TAs that all Perk Drink Packages, will now have a $14/day surcharge charge, added upon embarkation. This amount is not a "tip", or an amount to upgrade the package to Premium, but a daily fee associated to having the perk. Have any of you heard of this? I'm hoping this is simply a rumor, but the rumor spreader seemed fixed in their declaration and concluded with it was "in X's plans to implement" once they introduced the Premium Plus Package (which should be completely independent of this discussion). Thanks to any help you all may be! This may change our future decisions on perks. Lady_G
  5. Thank you for your posting! I will do just as you suggested! I know to some, my posting may seem frivolous; however, I agree my children are entitled to similar/like perks as we are paying full fare for both of them. Lady_G
  6. I'm jumpstarting this thread again: Last year on our Equinox sailing, I tried (very nicely, each time) through Captain's Club (we're Elite) 800#; Front Desk; Captain's Club on-board Rep; and Concierge, and was told they could not upgrade DD nor DS's beverage package. I guess I'll try on our Thanksgiving sailing on the Equinox, this year. Anyone had any success recently in getting their full-fare, minor child's, beverage package upgraded to Premium Non-alcoholic? Thanks! Lady_G
  7. Both of our babies were exactly 6- months old when we cruised with them. We had a great time with them; start their travels early and they will be excellent travelers as they mature. We started our babies out on RCCL, but I know that Celebrity will do an amazing job taking care of you and your family! Ignore those "anti-children" posts. Enjoy yourselves but pack smartly. I have lots of tips. Feel free to message me with any questions!! Lady_G Sent from my SM-G965U using Forums mobile app

  10. My DH, friends, and I want to upgrade our Beverage Packages to the Premium Beverage Package online; utilizing our OBCs. I can't seem to find where to do that, or do I have to call Celebrity to do it? Thanks! Lady_G Sent from my SM-G965U using Forums mobile app
  11. Seriously? We're on the 17 NOV sailing out of Miami. [emoji50] Sent from my SM-G965U using Forums mobile app
  12. Our children prefer Celebrity over RCCL. We always give them a choice and it's always Celebrity. They are (now) 12 & 8, but our daughter has loved Celebrity since she was 3. We used to cruise RCCL a lot, so our daughter is Diamond/Elite on her own, but she always exclaims Celebrity when they're offered the choice. Our son enjoys Celebrity because they have video game systems in the Kid's Club, as well as better food. [emoji14] Sent from my SM-G965U using Forums mobile app
  13. This is why you *never* break the cardinal rule of cruise procurement: NEVER check on a price after you have fully paid it. It will kill your soul; but you can't blame the cruise line. They're in it to sell rooms - but like other posters mentioned, most likely the "sale" really isn't a sale. Sent from my SM-G965U using Forums mobile app
  14. This was beautiful. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family Sent from my SM-G965U using Forums mobile app
  15. My two yen..... This thread piqued my interest in my Go Better Perks Package (OBC & Drink Package) combined with "Military Savings". I never knew there was a difference between "Military Rate" vs. "Military Savings". You learn something new every day! [emoji3] Lady_G Sent from my SM-G965U using Forums mobile app
