  1. Quest, June 2019, 10 days Alaska Originally booked a window cabin. (This was a last minute cruise for us, we only booked about 8 weeks out) bid $200 per person for balcony (min. bid was $200, obviously our bid was “weak”) upped it $50 more per person about 10 days before sailing when I saw some balconies were available again status: Discoverer Plus (2nd cruise on Azamara, 25+ on Celebrity) 2nd bid was successful about a week before we sailed. We had a balcony for Cuba in February for our 1st Azamara Cruise & loved it! I’m sure we would have enjoyed the OV as well, but we were very happy to get the upgrade for $500, which was significantly less than if we had booked a balcony originally.
  2. BenBar, I agree with all you wrote. The Captain was hilarious, loved him! The crew were all wonderful & we were pleasantly surprised by our experience in the main dining room. Our last 4 cruises were in either Luminae or Blu so we were expecting a let down. Everything we ordered in the dining room was either excellent or very good. The Elite breakfast in Tuscan was really nice. With that view out the back (especially while we were at the glacier!) was beautiful. Our CD was Liam. We liked him, but didn't find him exceptional. He left when we left I believe. I don't know who took over for him. Like you said, great cruise!
  3. Yes, we sailed with her a couple weeks ago. It was the first time since Celebrity started offering drink packages that we didn't have one, so therefore ..... we spent a lot of time at the Elite cocktail event ; ) and had a chance to get to know her. She is from Mexico and is very sweet and welcoming. This Alaska Solstice trip was last minute for us. We booked an "Exiting Deals" and while we enjoy having all the perks, it was a great cruise and we found out spending more $$ isn't always necessary!
