  1. Thanks everyone. I think I’ll go down to 6 specialty.
  2. The MDR has some starters that you can always get ... tossed salad or shrimp. Will I be able to get these in Blu. Same with Salmon ... just wondering. Thanks.
  3. We always enjoy the Specialty restaurants and I bought a 7 night package for our 13 day Transatlantic. We just moved to Blu so was thinking I should cut back on specialty for this cruise ... we’ve never been to Blu. We especially like the personalized service in the specialty. Thoughts.
  4. We have never sailed with a beverage package for many reasons but our next trip we will have the package. Do you tip for drinks at the bar, restaurants and Cafe. We want to be sure we are doing the right thing. My opinion would be to tip.
  5. We are on a 13 Transatlantic in November in AQ (which is quite a bargain). Today I checked on adding 4 perks and it was $600 a person. The on-board credit is $150 and the gratuities are $195 plus free internet for two and premium drink package. It was easy to take the offer.
  6. Thank you for all your advice. I moved to AQ1 for an additional $68 pp for a thirteen day Transatlantic. Just the savings for Persian Garden well makes up the difference.
  7. If you are Elite can you book AQ1 and pay AQ2 price. We can book AQ1 for 200 more per person for 13 day cruise but A2 is what we are paying for CC today. Plus husband loves Persian Garden so we wouldn’t have to purchase him a length of pass cruise. We’ve never done AQ so we’d use Persian Garden. Is Blu good for dinner?
  8. Wondering if I could cancel and rebook and get points. Hmmm ... I sent an email to my travel agent.
  9. Last night my husband and I stumbled across a Love Boat episode. A women decided she wanted fresh air and went to the “Lido” deck to sleep for the night. I said to my husband “wonder if you can do that?” He replied “we’re never up late enough or early enough to know”. We laughed and he said “you should ask CruiseCritic. So hear goes ... I was thinking this would be a great idea for the chair hog to get the perfect chair.
  10. We have a great slant 1A cabin for all portions of a B2B. My husband now sees that the CC is only a few more dollars for first leg. I say keep what we have because of cabin location and CC benefits aren’t worth it. Plus we’d have to change rooms. Only way I see changing is if price of AQ comes down and then we would would get AQ dining and Persian Garden. Am I wrong in thinking Celebrity designated the CC and AQ cabins because they were in less desirable locations. Thoughts.
  11. Thank you so much. Just the information I was looking for.
  12. We will be in Spain for a week, a TA cruise for 13 days and continuing on a Caribbean cruise. We thought we might make a quick run to the Publix near the port to grab some things while in Fort Lauderdale. Is there an easy process for someone to get back on the ship without going through all the different lines. Has anyone done this?
  13. We are on a 13 day TA and an 11 day Caribbean ... I’m trying to find out if we get the B2B on both the cruises. Thanks.
  14. We are going on our first B2B and excited. I know Celebrity gave us a $100 credit for our second leg? Should they be giving it for our first leg? Also, is this credit person or cabin. Thanks for all your assistance.
  15. Can anyone tell me price of Costa Maya. How much is taxi from port. Thanks so much.
