  1. We all have different standards, it is definitely unacceptable to me. I suggested the OP does a little research to understand the pros and cons before deciding.
  2. Just be aware of the limitations of YIN cabin. There is a good reason they are so much cheaper than a balcony cabin. Check out Youtube to see if the lack of clothes space and the terribly small bathroom will satisfy your needs before you jump.
  3. Have some sympathy...........they say they are soooooo busy.
  4. An option to consider is get taxi/Uber from POM to Brickell Metrorail Station which gives you a free ride to MIA, then Tri Rail to FLL.
  5. They changed the exchange rate on their UK site from 81p to 79p = US$ over the weekend but all the excursions, dining packages, etc are still priced using the 81p rate except they have reduced the obc Sterling amount at the top of the page. Mistake ..........or added profit ?
  6. I read that if you ask the YC concierge he'll arrange for you to get 'Hotel luggage trolley' which is on castors, that would be ideal as a clothes horse. Being mobile you should be able to park infront of the wardrobe, worth asking....?
  7. We are on 21nts Reflection B2B cruise in November next year, done same B2B itinerary aboard Silhouette in 2018. Murano restaurant is exceptional especially as a meat lover. You need to try their Cerveva Venison from New Zealand, superb. Their 11 night Specialty package price is $353/pp. Look at a few Youtube videos of Murano table-side preps. When we dine there for the full cruise they always offer off menu items, namely Steak Diane, Rossini and their Prawn Thermidor is wonderful. MSC YC can't compare neither can their Butcher's Cut - you will be in for a treat believe me !
  8. Capt.......we have cruised extensively with Celebrity mostly on their S class ships. What we do is choose the cheapest balcony cabin that's not obstructed and then purchase their full cruise specialty dining package. Once onboard we immediately reserve every night in Murano restaurant, which is the best restaurant on the high seas ( total cost is lower than if you choose an Aqua balcony Cabin). Murano is better than Celebrity's suite only restaurant Luminae.
  9. Also avoid cabin port side aft, below the sunset bar grass area. We had a still lit cigarette land on one of our balcony chairs and burnt a hole. Dangerous practice smoking on cruise ships, people don't obey rules . Soon or later we will hearing of a tragedy at sea.
  10. We've been on Preziosa YC, if I remember correctly it was a few weeks after you. We have booked Splendida YC for March 2021 and have been fortunate (I think) to get Cabin 15001, a larger type YC1. How did Splendida (same itinerary - 14 night no sea day Caribbean) compare to Preziosa ? Is the TSL smaller as deckplan tends to show ?
  11. We were on Preziosa in the Caribbean during this year’s 6 nations and it was shown on the Sports Bar TV, as other said it was muted. I had a Huawei phone and cloned the TV’s remote enabling us to get sound.
  12. Whether you pay the gratuities is of no concern to me, just stating FACTS so people aren’t mislead by your statement.
  13. Celebrity have never made the Gratuities mandatory, they can be cancelled at Guest Relations without question.
  14. Get good travel insurance that covers medical expenses, cancellation and End Supplier Failure then forget ABTA/ATOL. I have recently cancelled 2 MSC cruises and received full refund of my deposits thankfully both booked in the US and avoided the loss of over £500.
