  1. oh you are funny!!! LOL I have a cruise booked for March 2020, but it's on Celebrity... hmmm... should go check there LOL
  2. You did the iFLY???? Really???? I didn't dare LOL
  3. ah yes, but the Spring 2021 B2B in the works is also a scrapbooking themed cruise. So it has a special attraction for a group of friends and I. 😄
  4. Going on a 15-night cruise in March and would like to purchase a 3 night dining package. It is currently selling at about 15% discount on full price (if we do 1 night each in Murano, Tuscan Grill and Qsine). I have heard that if we are willing to wait onboard, we can negotiate a much better deal (at least 30%, possibly even 50%) with people selling or even directly at the restaurant door with a few days notice. This will be my first cruise on Celebrity and so far, I have found MDR food on both Royal and Princess to be quite enjoyable, but we figured that a few nights out on a 15 night cruise might break up some of the repetition. So do we buy now at 15% or wait and expect to find a better deal onboard?
  5. This was my very first cruise several years back in an inside cabin (Deck 3, right near the MDR entrance) and am seriously considering doing a B2B (my first) in 2021 in an OV forward (not front facing, rather port or SB, still deciding). We spent a LOT of time on those "secret balconies". I know that they have been repurposed to cabins... so sad!!! I also know that Chicago has been replaced by Mamma Mia. So what else has changed? I know some restaurants have changed, what are those details exactly? Thanks for all the help
  6. Does Celebrity have gifts that are available for purchase? I have friends cruising Eclipse on Aug 11th and would like to surprise them (through their TA) with a gift of some kind in their cabin. I can do this on Royal (chocolate covered strawberries or other choices) but cannot find anything in my planner that includes gifts available for purchase.
  7. This will be my first cruise on Celebrity. On Royal, it seems that there is a Cruise Planner Sale on excursions, dining/beverage packages and spa treatments every couple of weeks or so. I have seen very few items on sale. Does Celebrity traditionally have sales at certain times of the year. My sailing is already very economical because it is a repositioning, but I was hoping that maybe I could save even more money on the items we want to prepurchase.
  8. The Roll Call DOES show up in the "Content I follow" stream... but not in the "Content I posted in" stream... very strange!
  9. Both boxes are checked, which is why I am perplexed. I cannot find where to "Subscribe" or where my "Subscribed" section is (unless it's simply another name for the same thing LOL).
  10. My Royal one shows up, but the Celebrity one never does... and I have posted in it plenty. Anyone have any idea what the issue might be?
  11. ooooooo... if you're in an inside cabin (and only Select level), is it still a $9 upcharge for Black Truffle Omelette or Crab Cake Benedict? Both of those sounds absolutely yummy!!!
  12. OUCH!!! No way... not when you can snag cruises at about $100/night (and that's Canadian dollars)... ok, so it was repositionning and an inside cabin, but still!!!
  13. There is no drydock scheduled. She is docking in Barcelona on Oct 26, and will be doing a Transatlantic from Barcelona on Nov 9, but there is no info anywhere on what is happening in that 2 week period.
  14. Wow!!! Was your stop 9-4 like ours? If so, what time was the last tender? I'm thinking I might reconsider the tour option. Also, is all aboard time at ports from San Antonio to San Diego generally 1 hour before departure?
  15. I am trying to organize a private tour in Cabo. Just wondering what time it would be safe to book the tour from, seeing as Celebrity Excursions will have priority for tenders. Ship is there at 9... would 10 be too early?
