  1. Love Azamara, but there is just no way that I am going to book a cruise with them until all of this shakes down. I'll stick with more stable brands as the risk of losing your money in a bankruptcy is just too big in my opinion.
  2. Actually, this is incorrect. If you read the full benefits on the two page document that links from the webpage, the cappucinos and lattes and fitness class etc. are still listed as benefits at the Elite Plus Tier. Here is the link to that document which lists everything on Page 2. https://secure.viewer.zmags.com/publication/cc0ce13c#/cc0ce13c/2
  3. I agree completely. I am Elite Plus and their targeted GenX demographic with no kids and travel money to spend, but I am done with loyalty to this line. I liked the new all inclusive pricing since I buy it anyway...but now they are just trying to vacuum more out of our pockets with dry cleaning packages, pressing packages and tiered Internet speeds. Such a slap in the face to their customers....the ones who would undoubtedly sail with them to get them out of the fiscal hole they currently find themself in. I'll move on over to Princess , or even HAL, as they tend to offer better itinerarie
  4. I like the all inclusive pricing actually, since I get all those things anyway...but I am really disappointed in the lack of changes in Captains Club benefits announced today. I had anticipated there would be something worthwhile in these changes, but since there isn't, it is now time for me to go elsewhere. I have a future booking on hold for late 2021 which I will just probably cancel and forfeit the $100 deposit. Finally got Elite+ and absolutely no incentive for me to stay loyal to this line. Now my decisions will solely be based on best itinerary which Celebrity seldom offers. Think
  5. I don't tend to sail in Suites, so depending on pricing I'm either going to be in Aqua or a balcony and end up purchasing or paying for all 4 perks anyway - plus an upgrade to premium bev package....so to me, I like the price all in and then it's easier for me to know what a good price is without doing all the math of one perk, two perks, four perks included etc. So yes it's simpler for me to understand the pricing and just pay before i go.
  6. I'm GenX and Elite+; and yes all inclusive pricing makes it more likely that I will continue sailing Celebrity. That being said, if they are targeting my demographic, they are going to have to stop the relentless Beatles tribute bands and find some more interesting activities and entertainment options beyond a Silent Disco. I can only sit on the stool at the Martini Bar for so long. 🙂 Some late night shows would be a nice change. Virgin Voyages actually sounds somewhat appealing because they are focusing on healthy lifestyles, some fun entertainment and thankfully no buffet. We tend to
  7. Yes, I understand that - hence the question of what they will do.
  8. Right. But if they already give us some laundry perks, discounts on drink packages and Internet packages, and free specialty coffee......so you would think they would have to keep some of that stuff.
  9. No kidding. Perhaps they will give Elite plus the premium beverage upgrade and the streaming upgrade and some free laundry. I would be happy with that as I can't think of anything else I would really want anyway.
  10. I finally make it to Elite Plus and now Captain's Club benefits are going to change before I even get to sail at the new status. What do you think they're going to do?
  11. Thanks so much. Is it new that you don't have to upgrade everyone in the cabin?
  12. If you are an Elite Plus CC member, and you want to upgrade to the Premium Drink package (Classic package is our included perk).....do you get a 10% discount off the upgrade cost? If yes, how does one do this before you sail?
  13. Booked on the 10 night Lisbon to Barcelona on October 9, 2021. Any guesses or word when they are going to do the upgrade yet? I'm in a Deck 11 AQ cabin and liked what they did to the Summit during the revolution......hope Infinity will be done by then (if they don't sell the ship that is...).
  14. All of the prices on all of the cruise lines are hyper-inflated because of the generous future cruise credits they handed out and lift and shift promos etc. There is NO WAY I would give any cruise line money right now, including Azamara. There is too much risk and who knows if several of these lines will even survive. I certainly have my doubts Azamara is going to get through this.
