  1. This has been my experience as well. I find the flights myself, with 2nd choices at the ready, and see if Flights by Celebrity beats the price. For Caribbean/US flights I find that the prices are pretty close +/- a few dollars. I understand that the savings are substantial for international flights though. I like that I do not have to pay for the flights until final payment for the cruise and I can make changes with no fee. Sometimes I initially do a oneway when I find a good price and later I add the 2nd flight and they turn it into a round trip for me. In the past I was always able to
  2. The discussion here peeked my interest. My next cruise (God willing) is 1/30/22 out of Fl Lauderdale. I just checked the New York State site to see if my 2 Pfizer shots that were administered at a joint FEMA & New York State location were listed. To my surprise I discovered as of 3/26/21 my state has a new program, Excelsior Pass - https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/governor-cuomo-announces-launch-excelsior-pass-help-fast-track-reopening-businesses-and Excelsior Pass is a free, voluntary platform developed in partnership with IBM that uses a secure technology to confirm:
  3. You are asking about the cabins on the forward angle of the hump. These 4 corresponding cabins are on the aft slant of the same hump. The diagram shows the size and shape of the balconies.
  4. 9270. The 1st balcony on the slant is the largest, then the 3rd. The 2nd and 4th are smaller but still larger than standard balconies. The difference is in the depth.
  5. Thank you. I sent this to my TA. It would not be the 1st time Celebrity put out incorrect information. I would loooove to be able to use up that big FCC instead of being stuck with little pieces of FCCs.
  6. Celebrity combined 2 of my FCCs (it's a long story) so I ended up with an FCC larger than any of my cruise balances due. Celebrity told my TA that I can apply the FCC to a cruise and the excess money/value will remain on the same FCC to be used on another booking. The hitch is that that excess amount left on the FCC cannot be used until AFTER I have completed the cruise. In other words I cannot apply the excess amount on the second leg of my b2b.
  7. My most recent cruse was the Reflection March 13th, 2020 sailing that was terminated on day #4 and returned to FLL abruptly. We were 1200/1400mpassengers (I heard both numbers). It did not feel like the crew/staff was reduced - but then that was very early in this mess and they had contracts. The stunned look on the crews' faces and their willingness to go above and beyond to please us was so evident that tipping beyond my norm was easy even though the length of the cruise was greatly reduced from 10 days to 4.. They are victims in this mess too. I have never been taken care of better.
  8. Thank you so much. I loved the detailed review as well as the menu and pairings. I am surprised it was not better attended. The ones I have done have been as few as 6 and as large as 2 tables of I think 10ish.
  9. I'm following and enjoying your writing style and emphasis on the wines available. Be sure to ask your sommelier for a private tour of the Wine Tower in the MDR. That is a special treat. I am anxiously awaiting your impressions of the Veuve Clicquot dinner. If this dinner is the current incarnation of the Gourmet Dinner it's a lovely experience that I have enjoyed several times. I am hoping Reflection has one on the March 13th sailing.
  10. There are two lockers above the bed… each of them are 44.5 Inches Wide X 12 Inches High X 11 Inches Deep (so combined they span the whole 89 Inches across the headboard) https://www.dollartree.com/essentials-brown-collapsible-storage-containers-with-handles/237498 https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/1493244-celebrity-solstice-storage-s-class-ships/ Love your wine discussion. Lists would be nice.
  11. OK Post on the Equinox Feb 28th 2021 roll call. I'll see it for sure there.
  12. WOW that would have been great!!!! Is that your Mardi Gras cruise? PLEASE post if you were able to board and immediately go to your cabin to drop off your carry-ons and leave so the stewards can finish preparing them? PLEASE!!!!.
