  1. I am wondering where and when you can get the required covid test before we fly home to Canada? Does the ship do the test 48 hrs before and provide results? Do we have to book a hotel for a few days after cruise and try and find a testing sight? Do they do the test at the airport? We get so much false and continually changing information on our Canadian news I can't seem to sort it all out. I do know we need a test 2 days before we fly and it costs $80 at the pharmacy unless you go to an actual testing clinic stating you have felt symptoms and they do it for free
  2. Is it cheaper to book onboard or online pre cruise? I was thinking of trying the steakhouse on Apex. We tried the Tuscan years ago and fell in love and Qsine Le Petit Chef....they had a special where we could book half price if we booked first day. We generally don't go to them since the food is great in dining room but I want something special, but $55/pp plus added Grat is a bit much since I am paying through the nose for flights and hotel...........covid price increase is ridiculous..
  3. I don't know why they don't do the wrist band like RCL since it is the parent company of Celeb anyway......and according to many cruise msg boards people really love the Medallion that Princess has adopted
  4. you can always get your card punched at the desk when you board...I wouldn't advise punching a hole yourself because as explained to me on board the new wifi key cards have a thin wire running through them and if you break the connection you will be replacing your card. I would go do the dollar store or office supply store....ie Staples and get yourself a plastic pouch and lanyard ..or get a waterproof cell phone lanyard case kill 2 birds with one stone
  5. If you are worried. Get an envelope place card inside it. When its asked for you hold the envelope open so waiter can take the card when he is done hold envelope open again so he/she can place it back inside...that way only you hold the envelope and do not touch the card yourself until you can clean it.
  6. I have noticed on the Apex and Edge they are running a new Le Petit Chef and Family . I have seen the orginal and the Chef and Friends Can someone please post a menu to the new Chef and Family ...can't even find videos on youtube or Celebrity facebook pages.....so it must be really new.
  7. Is Celebrity still doing the sea pass key card or have they gone the way of RCL with wristbands. I know Princess now has medallion class where you can wear your medallion in many different ways. I hoping since RCL does wristband options that Celebrity will as well especially on the new ships like Apex.
  8. I have just booked an Aqua Class cabin for the first time. I know you can eat in the Blu and can use the "Parisian Garden" but what spa benefits can you get? Also this will be the first time with an infinite balcony room. I have cruised on Reflection, Equinox in Concierge Class. Will the room feel smaller ..pictures so less storage space and the room looks smaller with the bed right next faux balcony.
  9. I am looking for any pictures or video of a Celebrity Suite since the ships refit has been done. I have found a video from 6 years ago but I am sure the rooms have changed since then..
  10. Suite guest seats are only reserved on chic/elegant night.......any other day it is open seating
  11. I wear a broomstick skirt and tshirt , or jerseyknit dress....even capris and tshirt........anything you can snap out of a dryer and hang......very casual..I have ironed enough clothing during my service career , I am no longer a buttoned up, well pressed dress to impress kind of person. Vacations should be comfortable and relaxing , there is no need to work a runway......Pictures not worth paying $25 for a sheet I can take a nice photo at home. To each their own...you do you
  12. If you cruise Royal more than you have Celebrity even thought they are the same company do not expect your entertainment to be the same quality. I love Celebrity but the one thing they lack in is shows. I have seen the same headline 3 times on my last 3 cruises on different ships....Ashley Amber must have a contract for years with them ...I enjoy the guest comedians usually get 1 or 2 shows thats it...cast productions are good but not often changed out I have seen the same shows over the last 3 years ..I understand they spend alot of money on training and sets but. I wish they had a comedy club like Carnival or RCL or NCL somewhere you can go when you have already seen a show....we just spend a lot of evenings playing cards or watching movies. We do like the daily activities...trivia we do 2 times a day , indoor archery is a blast.
  13. You get OBC as a booking perk with Celebrity depending on cabin amounts change but you can also get OBC from some booking agents...Last year I got $1250... OBC in total. If you check you on screen acct in you cabin and it will tell you how much you have. IF it is OBC-N that is non refundable so spend it or lose it....if you have OBC-R if you don't spend it that amount will be returned to your credit card. I personally only spend non refundable and always return to my credit card the other amount...That means to me it is not a free perk, I am just charged more for my cruise...........
  14. You won't see your perks online...when you get your seapass card it will say classic on it. As for Wifi everyone does the same thing, they wait till they get to their cabin and find nothing that tells you how to connect.......then go to ilounge and wait forever for answer. HERE IS THE ANSWER. Go to the i lounge and sit at one of their computers and create your account and you are good to go..depending on your wifi pkg you can only long on 1 device at a time for 1 person unless you have 2 device package. The Celebrity app is free no need for wifi, you can get daily activities, menus for all venues and you can also send messages .........which is awesome since I always loose my DH ..this way we can figure out where we are on the ship to meet up again. BTW you can also upgrade you drink pkg to premium if you like top shelf ..if just on person wants to up grade you can do that as well.
