  1. Yes, You would lose Luminae, Retreat access and you OBC might be reduced. I do enjoy sky suites and Luminae. Concierge Class or an Verandah are both nice. With Concierge you will have lunch in the main dining room after boarding. You will dine in the main dining room in the evenings. Celebrity has set or Select Dining (My time dining). Or you could use some of the money saved on specialty dining. Celebrity has AquaClass, but only 2 guest per cabin and you will dine in Blu. A private restaurant for AquaClass. Just saw the update My favorite Concierge Class C2 are 2105, 21
  2. I understand your frustration. If your arriving from SEA you can just have the driver go past pier 66 1st. The piers are 8 mins apart. https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Smith+Cove+Cruise+Terminal+at+Pier+91,+West+Garfield+Street,+Seattle,+WA/Pier+66,+2225+Alaskan+Way,+Seattle,+WA+98101/@47.6228115,-122.3846227,14z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x5490157c17c1ff09:0xb959a4098c25c2f3!2m2!1d-122.3801685!2d47.6332067!1m5!1m1!1s0x54906ab278d32541:0x74fe077aad01ffee!2m2!1d-122.350051!2d47.6116397!3e0
  3. If I understand correctly. You booked a Sky Suite with a inside cabin vestibule. I thought I remember Celebrity telling us that if you both cabins together that the inside cabin will have access to the Retreat and Luminae. I asked about it here on CC and may people told me no. The inside cabin will not have access to to Retreat or Luminae. What were you told from your TA or Celebrity?
  4. It was my understanding. As your room attendant may not be done with your cabin. Your cabin door will remain open as the attendant may be going in and out of your cabin.
  5. We have the butler bring us coffee and a fruit plate and 2 croissant about 7am. Then have a 2nd breakfast in Luminae about 8:30am. Room croissant are smaller, Luminae has very large croissant.
  6. Our only cruise on the Edge was in a S1 sky suite midship.
  7. The every evening items were adding to Luminae on the Edge ship in March 2019. We were on the first cruise when they were added.
  8. Yes, Luminae was carved out to the MDR. So the kitchens share space. So yes to being able to get the MDR menu in Luminae on the S and M class ships. I have never been handed or asked for the Blu menu in Luminae to order from. I've only asked for the MDR menu. This is not the case when it comes to the Edge class ships. As the kitchens are in different locations on the ship. You do have the every evening items also. French onion soup, shrimp cocktail etc... The concierge in the Retreat or MC will have all the menus for all restaurants for every night of your cruise. I also think the ship A
  9. In 2015 we had a group of 11 on Connie in Select Dinning. I had our TA link the reservations together and book the same time for each dinner.
  10. If I remember right Infinity has TG with a private dinning. That might be nice for your group. I dont think that Infinity has Murano.
  11. We really like the slant concierge cabins on deck 12. 2105, 2106, 2107, 2108. Great location right out to the pool and one deck up to the buffet. Easy to bring food back to the cabin.
  12. Spaghetti noodles with pesto sauce. I also had them turn a shrimp appetizer into a entrée dish, after I did not like my pork entrée dish.
  13. Seattle is a large city 83.9 square miles with a number of issues. Check out Seattle Marriott Waterfront, it is near pier 66. Cruise ships leave out of pier 66 and pier 91. Also check out the Queen Anne area of Seattle for hotels. The unrest we had was in the Capital Hill, Pike Pine area around Cal Anderson Park is about 2 miles away from Seattle Marriott waterfront on the other side of the i5 freeway. Also remember that Seattle is very hilly.
  14. I'm trying to understand ship life on board a Celebrity ship during covid. Are all restaurants open for unvaccinated passengers? I've only heard that a section of the MDR has been set aside for unvaccinated. Has Celebrity sectioned off space in each restaurants? If your family/group has vaccinated and unvaccinated guest, can you eat together? Do they all have access to the retreat as suite guest? The simple question is. Is there space on the ship that are for vaccinated guest only and other areas that are for unvaccinated guest.
