  1. The Concierge lunch chicken was the worst meal I've ever been served on Celebrity, dry chicken and cold fries. Not worth paying extra for, IMO.
  2. Sadly, no. Priority Boarding simply means that you get to stand in the same line as concierge, elite etc. Not much of an advantage.
  3. Yet another thing not available to UK customers any more. Shame.
  4. Just be aware they use a fairly hot wash, OK for most things, but not all.

    Once on board, find the Captains Club Host. They will be your best friend.
  6. The card is not checked every time you order drinks at breakfast or in the lounge (Sky lounge on S class) where the cocktail party is held, so being served there should be no problem. It's only checked on entry for the first couple of days, until the CC host recognizes you. In other bars, only elites and above will get free drinks from the CC menu. Their companion will have to order and pay as at any other time.
  7. It's quite a hot wash, so take care putting delicate items in.
  8. I wonder if accepting a Move Up offer would constitute rebooking. This might make a difference to how much I'm prepared to bid.
  9. Liquor purchased on board will be delivered to your stateroom on the last night of the cruise. You can bring a bottle of wine aboard on embarkation, but nothing stronger.
  10. Often, the word "small" really refers to the bus, a minivan rather than a tull size coach. This can be important on small roads etc. However, if the bus is full, a small group can feel more crowded than a group of 50 on a coach. Somewhere outdoors, like Herculaneum, I don't think the group size really matters.
  11. You can still get the Elite discount on the short package.
  12. If there are two of you in the cabin, both elite, as long as you don't mind only being able to use the internet one at a time, you can use one person's allowance for 90 minutes then the other person's either for another 90 minutes or for the elite discount on the remaining part cruise package, which is still available on board. You have to wait until approximately half way through the cruise to get the part cruise offer.
  13. If you're elite and you want to get the Elite discount when pre-purchasing a package, you'll have to call the Captain's Club. The website can't handle it. If I were you, I'd wait until on board, use my 90 minutes Elite allowance, then purchase a package for the remainder of the cruise. If you go to the Internet room, they'll explain the options.
  14. I hope they sent you back and made you walk around! 😉
  15. I should have guessed that US customers would get a better deal than those booking in the UK.
