  1. Does the suite area at the port still have room with coffee and food before you board?
  2. When booking a suite guarantee it does not come with the perks....no wifi and gratuities I understand. But would it or would it not come with premium drink package since you are able to use the retreat? Hope someone can answer this. Thanks,
  3. Well, this did happen to us on the Reflection Spring transatlantic in 2019. We were one of the first ones in the sky lounge, took 2 seats at the bar and noticed drinks sitting in front of us. Moved them aside and ordered our drinks. Twenty minutes later a couple came in and told us to move, we were sitting in their seats. We said we were there when the venue opened and did not move. Then the couple went to get the captain club host, Fabio. Fabio asked us to move, at this point there were no other seats. We did not move. Bartenders always get tipped when they serve us happy hour drinks, never heard of tipping for a seat. As a matter of fact, the bartenders were all smiling when we stayed seated as they didn't care for the other couple evidently. We got a call from the Hotel Director who offered an apology. We had people surrounding us who said we should have moved and others were glad we held our ground. I never heard of paying for a seat. On this particular cruise the happy hour started at 5 only on paper. By 4:30 most of the bars were already serving drinks for happy hour and no seats were ever available at 5 or even 4:35 . Sky lounge they opened the doors promptly at 5 and everyone rushes in. Maybe buying a seat could be a revenue maker!
  4. $126 price is when you upgrade from the premium drink package...
  5. Does anyone have information on the Drinks and More Package. I have an OBC that I'm going to use to purchase and just wondering if it's worth it. I've never seen this promo before. This is what is included for $126 for two people: Save time and money when you purchase our new Drinks & More beverage package. Enjoy all of the benefits of the classic and premium beverage package, which includes all the top-shelf spirits (89 options), vintage wine (161 options), liqueurs & cognacs (24 options), beer (44 options) and champagne, plus the following: Two bottles of wine $50 in casino free play Wine tasting experience Package can be upgraded into If both adults in your stateroom purchase the Drinks & More package, the mini bar will be included and replenished once a day for your entire vacation.
  6. Your experience does sound very similar...no we refused to move. Never saw them again. The bartenders gave us a thumbs up!
  7. We did say no...refused to move. Some people around us thought we were standing our ground while others thought we should have moved.
  8. I'm diamond plus, we were in an aqua suite, and did complain while on the cruise. I was offered a dinner in Tuscan restaurant and declined it. I wrote about the incident in my cruise survey and never heard back. I haven't cruised with Celebrity since this happened earlier this year, been sailing other lines. But friends want to sail Edge next year so thought we'd go and try again. This happened on the Reflection in May.
  9. My pet peeve was when the Captain Club host asked us to move from our seats at the bar (15 minutes into happy hour)at the Sky Observation Lounge because we were sitting in the seats that zenith people usually sat at. Silly me thought there was no saving seats, especially around a bar! So I guess saving seats is my pet peeve!

  11. Since port charges are refundable (I had to cancel a cruise a week before cruising and I was refunded port charges only) can I insure only the trip portion and not the port charges? I'm asking because to buy cruise insurance under $3000 was a lot cheaper than buying it over $3000. and the port charges pushes the total purchase price to just over 3K. I just want to make sure I'm insured and not have an issue if I were to need it. I find insurance and the small print so confusing. Thanks
  12. On Anthem are diamond plus members allowed to access the concierge room for happy hour? Also, the thermal suites on Anthem are they an interior or exterior room? Thanks
  13. Can these certificates be used after you have already paid cruise in full towards on board charges like gratuities?
  14. After using the certificates and booking directly with Royal, can you then transfer booking to a travel agent?
