  1. I booked a Sky Suite for $2200 pp for 10 days with all the perks plus another $600 OBC. The same cruise is now $8000 pp for the Sky Suite. I don’t care. Why worry about it? You got a good deal and so did I. That is why I booked it If they charged you for the increase it would be a issue. Happy Cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  2. The largest balconies are in AQ on deck 11 aft Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  3. Thanks for the reply. I don’t book a outside cabin but was asking for those that might. Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅 USA Thanksgiving, Universal Peace and Love
  4. Does that apply if you don’t have any lights or TV on? If I had one of those cabins and wanted to gaze out it would be senseless to have any light in the cabin because of the glare. Happy crusing 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  5. I have heard that they may close your windows shades at night to prevent the light interfering with the night vision of the Bridge. I don’t know if they have control or send security to close them. Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  6. You get the same benefit s you would any time you book a cruise. You pay for a cruise and have the opportunity to do it A sale is a sale. I don’t think there is any law or regulation that it has to be a cheaper or bargain price. One advantage is if the cruise is offered at a lower price you can get the lower price if you ask, if the price increases you don’t have to pay the increase. Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  7. I am sure they would want you to use the mini bar and pay the price for those drinks Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  8. Where did you see that ? we have made final payment on a B2B 10 and 11 day cruise with X departing in Feb. It is 90 days since we are in a suite that was too good to pass up A little over $200/day pp with all the perks and extra SBC Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🇺🇸
  9. Don’t understand your comment My post doesn’t specify or refer to anyone on this forum or make assumptions about them. People will call a TA and blindly ask for a cruise in some class or maybe book it on line without doing any research. If they had a great TA the TA would steer them towards a better deal but if the customer wants a certain class that is what they book them. Some people, just don’t understand value or saving money. I worked in a supermarket when in HS. We had a very large end display with cams of peaches that we stacked brick style. They were $.
  10. I found that contrary to belief not many passengers are members of this forum or really care about it. When a ship has 3000 passengers and about 100 show up or register for the CC party that should be some indication. I think that the members on here are a minority of the passengers that for the most part and me being one are trying to find the best bargains and the most for our money spent. We spend a lot of time trying to get as much as we can. It is like clipping coupons to save a penny. Sometimes is it really worth it ? The other passengers that are the majori
  11. A cruise that we have booked now offers a Royal Suite at $1000 less pp than a Celebrity Suite. Still to much for our purse. problem is many are programmed into thinking a that the lower categories are cheaper and don’t look or research to see what the best value is EG a few years ago a veranda would be $xxx. For $10 more pp you could get CC with paid gratuities on a 7 day cruise. No brainer but then some people would blindly book a veranda as it had to be cheaper Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  12. The cruise lines are like a furniture store. There is always a sale. It doesn’t mean the prices are cheaper they are just promoting a sale. Happy cruising 🌊🚢🌅🌅
  13. The Elite HH has never been a benefit to us. When we finally reached the ability to go behind the green door the beverage package almost became a standard perk. The elite breakfast breakfast was almost useless as we would always be in AQ or if the price was right a suite. For the limited amount of time cruise we want a nice experience. I guess for those living in Fl I can see where they would book the cheapest rate and category to utilize all the benefits as a cheap get away and accumulate points towards Zenith We learned from other loyalty programs it
  14. If the price differential isn’t that great or outrageous the suite also special embarkation and disembarkation privileges and priorities. You also are able to dine in Luminae for lunch on embarkation instead of having to go to the pig trough for lunch fighting the crowds Aqua gives unlimited access to the Persian Garden that is nice but not somewhere that you may utilize everyday. We were in AQ on the Edge and liked everything about it. The suite would have been $2000 more pp for a 7 day cruise and we couldn’t justify it. We got a great deal for a SS on the Apex in
  15. We have always done the same. I will not upgrade with those Hawks that bother us everywhere on the ship on the first day. That get the benefits and we will never see them again. We found that upgrading with the BT or sever that we will use the most gives good results. To save a dollar a day by upgrading before the cruise isn’t worth the benefits we get by doing it on board with the favorite BT a or server. Disclaimer, we don’t expect to be served first and tell them who is next, it is for the little things that we appreciate. Drink up 🍸🥤🍹🧉🧋🥂🍻🍺🍹🥃
