  1. I guess I've always been in the wrong pool on "S" class ships.😎
  2. I always put a 24hr hold when I see the situation. You can just tell them the reservation number on the hold.
  3. Ya think? Embassy Suites 17th street $1240 for 1/30 1 night! Oh if you have Hilton Honors points it's only 550,000.
  4. "S" class outdoor pools are much shallower. Not much over 4', definitely not over my head, plus they are fresh water. "M" class outdoor pool is 6-7' and over my head plus they are sea water.
  5. This changed a couple of years ago. Now when you have them keep the booking with Celebrity they have you sign a form. It sounds like Celebrity inadvertently sent the reservation to them and when they figured out they had done it in error pulled it back? My response to the agency would be that you had made the booking specifying that it was to be held by Celebrity. If Celebrity had done something different with them they need to take it up with Celebrity. If the agency was aggressive like this with me they certainly wouldn't get my business.
  6. One clarification on #2, It's the difference from what you paid and the higher priced cabin. The current price of the assigned cabin has nothing to do with it. Generally you can do these types of upgrade anytime before sailing. Many people take advantage of price drops after final payment to attempt these types of upgrades, so keep watching prices if your sailing has available inventory.
  7. One piece of feedback to Ms Shey is that I'm opposed to the type of offers like the one that came out yesterday, "Sail with the CEO and get 15 bonus points". The Captains Club program has always rewarded loyalty in terms of amount of sailing with Celebrity. Originally it was number of cruises plus duration (1 extra point for longer cruises) and category (1 extra point for CC and higher). The the revamped program got a bit more granular with rewards by days sailing and category of stateroom. Only once I believe after the new points system was introduced were there bonus points use to entice people to book AQ with a 25 point bonus. At that time people used that to bump themselves to the next level. The recent promo for bonus points for booking Choice Air didn't bother me as much as you were technically "buying their product". But to just hype a couple of sailings with and executive. Come on... Are they testing this out to use loyalty points to entice people to book over priced sailings they can't move otherwise??
  8. It wasn't just the Edge, it's any of these sail with the CEO sailings, if you book by 3/31 you get 15 bonus CC points. I was suggesting that they may stoop to handing out extra loyalty points just to get people to book Edge. Having just clawed my way to Zenith by paying for each day in a stateroom I'm opposed to them handing points out this way.
  9. If your bid is accepted you keep whatever booking perks you had with your original booking but you only get any amenities which come with the new stateroom. For example if you had 1 perk in a Verandah and won a bid for a Sky Suite which generally includes GoBest perks you only keep your 1 perk and only get CC points for the Verandah room. But you do get Luminae and Retreat Lounge (or MC) as they are amenities of the Sky Suites. This is outlined in the Terms&Conditions which you should read carefully before bidding.
  10. What irritated me is the offer of 15 bonus Captains Club points. I can sort of understand bonus points for Choice Air as you are spending incremental money. But for sailing with LPP and her family, give me a break. I wonder if they will eventually offer double CC points just for booking edge??
  11. Correct, only OBC which is directly from Celebrity will show in your Cruise Planner.
  12. It's against Cruise Critic policy to post travel agency names. Your post will probably be removed.
  13. If you're not that interested in the drink package you can also watch for fares which don't include any perks like Senior or Resident discounts. I usually find that these unbundled rates work out better for me as I don't value the perks as much. I don't spend much on drinks and get free internet minutes from my Captains Club status.
  14. Yes I think would be worth it for the reasons people have stated.
  15. There is no limit to the number of drinks per day on Celebrity.
