    Fun shops question: Fireball?

    Have you sailed yet or figured out an answer to this question?
  2. I touched the link in the email advertising 20% off upgrade from classic to deluxe beverage package. It took me to the the exact spot on my cruise planner to buy this. It was indeed 20% off. (I first tried to just go to the cruise planner and couldn’t see where to upgrade.) i also had no luck finding any actual excursion sales!

    Booking cruise while on board

    The onboard credit for “booking onboard” is now attached to a booking code that is good for 2 weeks after cruise ends. However if you later want to take advantage of a sale you’ll lose the OBC because the sale code is traded for the original code. Less incentive!

    20% off Drinks/or Excursions emails

    We missed this sale. Didn’t get an email. Checked today and price of excursions are higher than when we looked this weekend. Sailing 11/10. Any chance of another sale before then? Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Two different balcony upgrade offers

    The problem is that after enjoying the balcony on cruise A you may be hooked and have to consider the balcony on cruise B! Enjoy! Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    booking a cruise while on a cruise

    Beware also that now the “onboard booking” onboard credit is associated with a code they give you. If later you see a lower price and try to price match you lose the onboard credit. It used to be that you could take advantage of later sales and the obc stayed on the booking. Not any more! Really no reason to book onboard or even within the 2 weeks after returning home now!

    Towel Animals and Tipping

    This is from the Carnival website: Here is the breakdown, per day: Housekeeping Team: $4.05 ($5.05 for suites) Dining Team: $6.40 Alternative Services: $2.50 I imagine other cruise lines are similar. Room stewards & waiters have assistants so these amounts are shared. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  9. We were on the Equinox last March and had the pleasure of enjoying St Thomas, St Kitts, St Maarten and Barbados. This was our 2nd Celebrity cruise and we have also fallen in love. We found the Equinox to be a beautiful ship. We also had the pleasure of being entertained by Ashley Amber! We also enjoyed the martini bar several nights! Glad to hear others are enjoying this ship & line also! Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    We are staying in a Havana balcony in Jan. Our friends are in a Havana inside across the hall! We can all enjoy the private pool together and they can also visit us on our balcony. Can't wait! Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Random Allure questions

    We did "A taste of St Maarten" when we were on Celebrity last month & highly recommend it. Had a nice island tour & stopped at 4 local places to eat. Quite a bit of food and a little bit of wine also. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
