  1. Gosh. What a quick and comprehensive reply!
  2. I see that NCL have a "free bar" offer at the moment. I am sure I have seen somewhere that drinks packages are not available on POA. If so, does that mean that the free bar offer does not extend to Pride?
  3. I see a bar. Drinks are free?
  4. My wife can get a Cosmopolitan on the Classic package, right?
  5. The term concierge lunch is new to me. We are in a Sky suite this time and I think we take lunch in Luminae. For future reference: who gets it and where is it (on Silhouette, eg)?
  6. I am familiar with this trick. I didn't have to worry about it last time I sailed with Celeb because everything was priced in USD.
  7. Sorry to come to this topic late. I have a U.K. booking and have been complaining to myself about the way Celebrity now do the on board accounting. I find it completely awful. To be told that (eg) a speciality restaurant will cost £39 when I know it will be $50 (rounding the numbers) confuses rather than clarifies. Same for the on board credit and shore excisions. I usually have excursions booked before we sail, but I am not going near this one. Why do they do this? Just sailed with Cunard. Almost everyone on board was British, but no one complained about the fact that all the pricing is in Dollars. I sailed with Celebrity about three years ago and everything was in dollars. Until a few days ago, I did not focus on it; now I have started to do the check in stuff. When I did the online check in the system asked me about the currency to be charged to my card. I want to pay with a card issued by a US bank. I fear that I will find that the on board (dollar) account will be converted into pounds and then converted back into dollars by my bank. All this muddle just so Celebrity can twist a few dollars out the currency exchange. How cheap can you get?
  8. I know that this has been covered here a thousand times, but can you guys remind me how many chics we may expect on a 14 cruise?
  9. Thanks. Did you buy the multinight package at the restaurant or through the front desk?
  10. Having enjoyed the Speciality Restaurants on the Silhouette in the past, we thought we would return several times on our upcoming cruise on the ship. We figured that we would go for the deal offered on the first night and have booked that successfully. However, when I try to make a further reservation for 3 night package, the system requires me to make a booking on the for the first night under that reservation, too. This seems a bit nuts. Are we required to make, in effect, duplicate bookings which we will have to unscramble once we board? The first day on the ship is usually a busy time anyway, without having this unnecessary thing to contend with. I am confident that I am not the first person to encounter this and that my Cruise Critic friends will quickly put me straight.
  11. And I assume that I can get better quality wine in the Retreat Lounge than both the Classic package and the Elite happy hour??
  12. Hurrah! The idea of using Firefox was a good one. I had to go round three times between the new and old login pages but eventually ended up on the VP page. One benefit of all this is that I now have the booking reference etched in my memory. I never need to look it up now having entered it so many times!
  13. Just had another go. Still having issues with this. The "new" page takes me to the old one, which takes me back to the new version. I have not managed to get into the voyage planner for over a week. I would like to have access before I sail in January!!
  14. Bit surprised there is info about some late 2020 sailings, but nothing for January, which is when we are on the Victoria.
  15. Here we are in November. Still no Insight details?
