  1. And my personal, absolute favorite.... Waiter: "Would monsieur care for another bottle of Chateau Latour?"Navin: "Ah yes, but no more 1966. Lets splurge! Bring us some fresh wine! The freshest you’ve got – this year! No more of this old stuff."
  2. "Well I’m gonna to go then. And I don’t need any of this. I don’t need this stuff, and I don’t need you. I don’t need anything except this. And that’s it and that’s the only thing I need, is this. I don’t need this or this. Just this ashtray. And this paddle game, the ashtray and the paddle game and that’s all I need. And this remote control. The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that’s all I need. And these matches. The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control and the paddle ball. And this lamp. The ashtray, this paddle game and the remote control and the lamp an
  3. The letter I received is below: Dear <ME!>, The last few weeks have been trying times, to say the least, and we now find ourselves in undeniably rough seas. But, as our wonderful Celebrity Captains will tell you, sooner or later everyone sails into bad weather—what makes a great mariner is how they’re able to sail out of them. It can be hard to envision calmer seas ahead when you’re in the middle of the storm. But we’ll get there. And we’ll get there together. As our most loyal guests you have always been there for Celebrity Cruises and we will always be here for you.
  4. If that is your thought / approach, then you can take the action you deem appropriate. My thought / approach is different, so I'm going on my sailing (assuming the cruise line doesn't cancel). Like many other transmittable diseases, one can catch this at the supermarket, restaurant, office, bus, airplane, sporting event, or other routine human interaction. While I am washing my hands more and (trying to) keep my hands away from my face, I am not stopping my life. Neither are my 80 year old parents (in good health). I do believe that this is overblown and over-hyped. Not to say it isn
  5. Like so many nautical names, I think it should have personal meaning, so I'm suggesting Pour Choices (spelling intentional) and Bottoms Out. Then again, these could be just the mottos for travel stocks right now.
  6. The best bar is the one I'm at 🙂 with a full drink. sorry, couldn't help myself....
  7. Glad to hear it's good coffee! This was the announcement a year ago. https://www.hollandamerica.com/en_US/news/2019-press-releases/news-20190122-Coffee18.html
  8. @DaKahuna is correct, with one qualification... the price difference plus a 20% gratuity on that difference
  9. We generally give $2 per normal breakfast delivery from room service. It is a luxury that we appreciate and the delivery person (who is generally not our room steward) is always helpful and happy. It is a small token. If we have dinner it is $5 tip, but that only happens if we are hung-over... I mean... not feeling well. Not that we are wealthy in anyone's mind, but we know that if we are lucky enough to cruise, bringing an extra $10-20 for room service tips isn't going to break the bank and it means a lot to the staff (and their families). You do not NEED to tip for a delivery, but we fi
  10. Thanks all! I’ll be (somewhat) patient.
  11. There are menus appearing in the Celebrity app for a cruise in March. Should I believe these and book specialty restaurants on the nights I don’t like the menu, or is likely to change closer to sailing? Thanks!
  12. You can see how much OBC you have from the cruise line (not a TA) by going to your cruise(s) and clicking on Plan my Cruise. You may get a pop-up with how much OBC you have, or it is at the top of the screen (just to the left of cart). This is on a PC -- it might be different on a phone / iPad.
  13. That is true..and the $9 includes the gratuity ($7.50 + 20% gratuity = $9)
  14. I noticed all the items on the Cocktail list are above $15. That means they all have up-charges, even if you have the premium package, correct? If so, pretty poor job by Celebrity. Wait, soon they'll have a super-premium package that allows up to $18/drink. 😡
  15. Recently had the D&M on a 5-nighter. A no brainer as the $50/ea was greater than the $45/ea upgrade cost from premium. Having the items in the mini bar was convenient (very limited choice - titos, some splits of wine, coke, pringles, and kind bars). The wine tasting was poor at best. We couldn't GIVE away the 2 bottles of wine from the room (we didn't even want the other two). As a note, we are going on a week long cruise in a few months and we are NOT purchasing it. We just didn't find the value...
