  1. So, here we around again....those not taking a drinks package in the UK would pay the increased price too? Dangerous strategy.
  2. Am I correct in thinking that this daily charge only applies to US bookings and not bookings made in the UK? We don't appear to use the term "perks" here. "Free drinks" are consistently mentioned on the UK site but I see no $14 uncharge (which would be quoted in pounds sterling.) If the "free drinks " offer were to incur an additional charge ($14) it could be in breach of the Trade Descriptions Act in UK law. We read on CC about the unfair UK pricing but on this matter....we may be a winner? Correct me if I`m misguided
  3. HCMC is not currently offered for the January 2020 trip. That seems odd as Celebrity advertise this port, Phu My, as HCMC. I suppose they would apply the usual scare tactic of not waiting for you if you take a non Celebrity trip.
  4. I wouldn't be too concerned. The last Twitter conversation was a complete waste of my time. No questions answered. Seems like they are just looking for new money raising opportunities , just like the recent CC conversation with LLP which seems to have resulted in ...a laundry option ...Premium Plus, I think they call it.
  5. hmmmm...I just noticed the option to upgrade with bid on up has gone from my cruise planner...I submitted a bid a few weeks ago.... 20 days to cruise time...

  7. We had the same dilemma. We purchased our excursions when there was a "sale" on, meaning we would have to pay considerably more for these excursions. In one word...Dunno. We're doing this cruise in Jan2020 Please post if you have any success. Thank you
  8. Here's another I came across on here posted by someone who did a lot of work. The purple is the Premium package. 326343640_CelebrityClassicPremiumDrinkPackageList2019.pdf The classic package is fine... The Premium is finer...we always take the Premium as we love the World Class Bar and nothing there is included in the Classic. If you take the Premium, always ensure that when you ask for a cocktail you make clear you want the premium spirit or else you get the less expensive stuff.. P.S. have they fixed Andy`s post box yet?
  9. That`s the way it works. Celebrity.com redirects to the UK site. I`ll try and find you a link that helps...try this04_25_OB_SP_BeveragePackageBrochure-V2.051518.pdf
  10. It`s all about exposure. Shorter cruises attract a younger clientele who can't afford to take 14 days off work. They are inclined to spend more , whereas a 14 day attracts mainly older, retired customers who spend less . 7/10 day cruises rotate more spenders...It`s all about money...
  11. Cruises that do a roundtrip itinerary from a Spanish port must charge the tax. Ships making a port of call in Spain are supposed to charge the tax while they are in port or in Spanish waters. Due to European VAT regulations Italian and Spanish IVA (VAT) tax is payable during your Mediterranean Fly Cruise. The Italian and Spanish IVA (VAT) will be due in different circumstances, please read on for details. Due to European VAT regulations, Italian IVA (VAT) at a rate of 22% is payable during your Mediterranean Fly Cruise when sailing from Civitavecchia to Civitavecchia. This is due to the ship not calling at a port outside of the EU during this period. Due to European VAT regulations, Spanish IVA (VAT) at a rate of 10% is payable during your Mediterranean Fly Cruise when located in Spanish territorial waters, (i.e. during the times when we are entering and exiting Spanish ports as well as the time we are alongside in Spanish ports). Spanish IVA (VAT) of 10% will be payable on the following on board items: Bars Restaurants – Select Dining Cover Charges Room Service Menus During the week where IVA will be charged you will be unable to purchase liquor and tobacco products to take home. Italian IVA (VAT) of 22% will be payable on the following on board items: Goods purchased in the on board shops Photo gallery Products purchased in the spa (it does not apply, however, to treatments and services in the spa) During the week where IVA will be charged you will be unable to purchase liquor and tobacco products to take home.
