  1. The difference between perks and amenities definitely confuses people. A lot of folks also don't seem to realize that Royal and above has different amenities than the lower suites. As a family of four the amenities (4 Premium beverage packages + 4 Internet packages) really add up and help offset the cost of the higher suite.
  2. I use my own stuff so it doesn't really matter to me but I've seen these larger containers before in smaller hotel chains. A few times over the last couple years. So definitely a trend that I expect to see across the industry.
  3. I don't want someone unpacking for me because I'm picky about that sort of thing. But my sister does it. And I don't think she was in the room when he did it the last time we cruised together. I never thought to have them fill out the laundry slip; will have to remember that one. My last cruise was the first time with the butler and I got the impression he felt like he wasn't doing enough. I guess we're pretty undemanding. We had a great time though.
  4. If it says Premium Beverage package then that should be fine. Premium Beverage is included for all guests with some of the suites and my son definitely had the Premium non-alcoholic on our last trip. He drinks enough mocktails that it would be an issue if it wasn't.
  5. Not interested in getting into a flame war but I did want to provide a data point. We did Celebrity Great Barrier Reef in October. It was our first family cruise and we decided to go formal. Girls had gowns and guys rented tuxes. We certainly weren’t the only ones dressed up. But luggage space was tight traveling to Australia from the States so renting the tux and shoes made a huge difference. We plan to do it again for Amalfi Coast-Greece this year. Terri
