  1. Dining in MDR also on next cruise, haven't done so in many, many years. Hope we won't be disappointed.
  2. We had to cancel and rebook (sort of). Our cruises were for Jan 2021 (B2B which we were uncomfortable taking with current world situation); unfortunately we already had another B2B scheduled for Jan 2022. We ended up canceling and rebooking one of the Jan 2021 legs to Sep 2021, and pushed the other Jan 2021 booking out to the last booking available in 2022 (which we have no intention of taking) as a place holder. We will move that booking again to late 2022 or early 2023 once itineraries are released. What this did for us was allowed us to keep our “on board booking incentive,” nor did we pay and cancellation fees with Celebrity or our TA, but on the downside we had to pay going rate and received current offered perks. Good Luck!
  3. I hope this is still true, hated walking through the sliders on Deck 12 into a cloud of smoke.
  4. We worked through our TA and just move several of our cruises. We didn’t pay any penalties or loose deposits. One of them we moved to a “placeholder” cruise with the intention to move again once the 2023 release.
  5. If you are a Diamond on Royal and book a Celebrity, you will get the Elite perks And your room card will state Elite. But ... if you had 150 points with Royal and 0 points with Celebrity, you would still have 0 points Celebrity and would need to build 750 points with Celebrity before you would be an Elite PLUS. It is confusing, google Reciprocity Royal Caribbean to Celebrity for a more in-depth explanation.
  6. Points do not transfer, but status does ... I.e., Diamond=Elite. Unfortunately, Royal Caribbean status tops out at Elite ... I.e, Diamond PLUS=Elite.
  7. We have booked AQ, so won’t get to use Luminae or The Retreat. Thanks for info on partial refurb of The Retreat on Equinox, when we book our next Suite, we will steer clear of The Equinox until they get the refurb complete.
  8. What is Slush and is GastroPub a speciality restaurant?
  9. Without Lawn Club and the Porch, were Tuscan, Murano, Sushi on 5, and Quisane the only Specialty restaurants?
  10. Since ships aren’t sailing anytime soon, thought I ask a question I’d been wondering about for awhile. We have sailed every ”S” Class ship with the exception of the Equinox, which we intend to remedy in Jan 2022, and every ship has been slightly different. What are the differences on the Equinox, and did you like her better?
  11. Thanks for all input. We ended up deciding to a B2B2B and 1599 was the only slant/hump A1 available all three legs, it made our decision easier (much prefer to unpack and repack once.). 🙂
  12. Does anyone know what the difference is between Cabin 1599 and Cabin 1605 on the Equinox? I.e., which has the larger balcony, where bed is located, noise level, etc? Trying to make a decision. Thanks
  13. We have a B2B Jan 4/Jan 15 booked on the Reflection. Haven’t cancelled yet, but am considering. Looked up pricing on both recently and they were way above our purchase price. The Jan 4 one, showed only OV cabins available, so looks like we may have a full ship, or that Celebrity is blocking rooms in prep of limited passengers. Who knows ... will make final decision in Sep.

  15. We are scheduled to do a B2B on Reflection in January 2021, seriously considering slipping both until later in the year with the hopes that a vaccine will be out. Only time will tell.
  16. We are of the same mindset ... not until there is a vaccine. Scheduled to sail on a B2B in Jan 2021 and wondering when to pull the plug on both legs.
  17. The Reflection is different, no window washing equipment in front or beside either of these cabins (have stayed in both). When Reflection was built, the equipment location was changed. Have also stayed in these cabins on other S-Class ships and the equipment is in front of adjoining cabins, I personally didn’t find it a problem.
  18. Just got off the Reflection after 17 glorious days in 1552 (bed by balcony), and will be in 1547 (bed by bath) next January for 21 days. No obstruction (unless you count the overhang). On all other S-Class ships, both these cabins have the window washing equipment parked In front of adjoining cabin, which is considered an obstruction. Believe Celebrity just didn’t update deck plans entirely when the Reflection was built. The window washing equipment was moved on the Reflection to a different location (think deck 12). Take care of “my” cabin, if you are on the Reflection.
  19. We have done this several times. The first time we both got the package that included glasses, the second time we just paid full price (with glasses) Around $85.00 for one and the other just did the workshop , think it was $20.00.
  20. Has anyone taken this tour in Cartagena?
  21. Looking for information about the ABC Island Ultimate Safari
  22. Yes vote. Went to Santa Barbara about a year ago, very nice day. We had been to Curacao several times and had walked around town, which is lovely, decided on some different, and was glad we did.
  23. Thanks! Just wanted to ensure we were getting the correct info.
  24. Has anyone received a Back to Back discount on a 6-day cruise? I have a 6-day/12-day Back to Back scheduled, received a discount on the 12-day portion ($100), but am being told that there is no discount for the 6-day leg. True or False?
