  1. Many of us remain isolated, feel disappointment in canceled cruises and worry about ever cruising again. I'm in that boat (ship??) too and wanted to throw something out there. Presently when I see the ads I dream about a future cruise and I'd love to book one or two or more but don't want to lay out $960 CAD (or similar) for each cruise deposit. IF the deposit was only $25 I'd book a few for down the road when the world gets back to normal. I know the cost is still the same overall but it is the layout of a deposit I may or may not get back. At least I could dream, and research, and dream
  2. I understand you are scared and feel a bit betrayed but consider the alternatives. I too left an 11 night Celebrity cruise earlier this month and traveled home from Florida. We were scared the last week on the ship that someone might become ill and we would be quarantined and couldn't get off. Fortunately the ship was cleared and we headed to the airport. Then there was the fear we might come in contact with Covid 19 going from the ship to the airport, at the airport, on the flight, etc. We were never so glad to be home. And we self quarantined for 14 days thereafter which has fortunatel
  3. Very nice. I was particularity surprised at the cabin changes (or limited changes) as I expected a complete overhaul. I'm glad they left some of the nice features i.e. overhead cupboards, granite counter tops, existing desk, etc. Also, I noticed the balcony table is table height. Is this a change from the other remodels? I think they were the same size but shorter. Thank you for posting.
  4. I'm curious if the Captains Club list of drinks considers sparkling water (Perrier or Pellegrino) as bottled water. I've never asked for this but wondered. Does anyone know?
  5. We will be in Honolulu for one day in early November. We are thinking about using the trolley to do our sight seeing. I'm always concerned about how busy it will be and how much time might be wasted waiting for the next trolley or transferring and worrying if the next trolley might be full. Has anyone taken it who can tell me how busy it typically is at that time of year? I think we are the only ship in port that day. How long do you have to wait between trolleys? And lastly, I can find all kinds of offers to sell me a daily pass but I thought I read you could pay as you go. And if so,
  6. Thank you everyone for your responses. It sounds like it might be doable. We'll go with a plan A and a plan B.
  7. We are booked on the Mendenhall Glacier and Rainforest Gardens tour through Celebrity Eclipse. We've been looking at the tourist map for Mendenhall and see that there is a hike to Nugget Falls that takes about an hour. Has anyone who has taken the ship's tour, remember the time allotted at Mendenhall and if there would be enough time to do the hike? Thank you.
  8. We are presently booked in a 1C on the 8th floor but would move to any forward cabin from the 6th to the 10th. After seeing the response from bengaltiger1 that you were able to mock book a 3+ cabin, I went through another mock booking and sure enough all the cabins have been released. Yeahhhhhh! And I've called and been moved. I guess I wasn't patient enough. Thank you to everyone for responding.
  9. I'm the OP and thought I would check back in with an update. We are now just over 30 days to sail date. I have phoned Celebrity and I have emailed my Celebrity cruise planner. When doing a mock booking, there are only 2 cabins for 2 people and both are bed by the balcony. We want bed by the bath for a couple of reasons, one being medical. There are hundreds (yes hundreds) of 3+ occupancy cabins most of which are beds by the bath. Even as late as Friday last week they were still telling me that the powers that be would not release them yet. This is mind boggling to me. I've booked a 3+
  10. It is the Eclipse for the June 16, 2019 sailing. I keep checking each day. I've called twice and I'm told to keep checking back. I understand the desire to fill cabins to the max but two couples sharing a balcony cabin is way too crowded (in my humble opinion) so filling them is doubtful. And on that date kids are still in school so filling them that way is unlikely too. I just wondered if the policy had changed.
  11. I too have booked 3/4 person cabins prior but this particular one seems to be handled differently. Even the Celebrity customer service rep was surprised but was unable to offer an explanation. This has left me wondering if there has been a change in the way they hold rooms. I even wondered if it might be because of the "bidding" system on cabins 30 days prior to sailing.
  12. We're 63 days out from our sail date and looking to switch from a 2 person cabin (usually bed by the balcony) to a 3-4 person cabin (which has the bed by the bath). There seems to be a lot of cabins available in all categories but they are only open when you indicate there are 3 or more people in your booking. The number of 2 person cabins remaining are very limited and are in the higher priced categories. My question is: Does Celebrity have a set time to sailing or cabins still vacant when they typically release all cabins regardless of potential occupants in order to fill them?
