  1. Sky Lounge, Deck 11. No drink limit. Can also get Elite Happy Hour drinks at most bars on the ship.
  2. Frankly, I am finding the constant fluctuations in pricing and promotions have become quite tiring and probably unnecessary. It's usually just a repackaging of the same thing, flip-flop from one promotion to the other. This likely is driving a lot of calls to their call centres which in turn drives up costs. Wish they would hold pricing, sprinkling in the odd, TRUE promotion every so often.
  3. Agree. Don't understand why they changed the overhang to begin with.
  4. If you are ok with booking an OV you can still monitor the cruise going forward to see if veranda cabins become available, prices drop etc. You may find down the road that you could move into a balcony for little, if any difference. Particularly around final payment date.
  5. Agree with Wine-O's recommendation. We had a similar situation and wound up taking an OV (3123) instead of our usual Veranda. We were pleasantly surprised. One thing to consider though is that if you are searching for cabins through the website they may not be showing you available verandas they are holding for 3 passengers. Try doing a mock booking for 3 PAX and see if anything shows up. BTW the Summit is an M class ship.
  6. Wonder whether any of these dining and entertainment changes will be made on Edge.
  7. Agree. It seems that its more luck of the draw, rather than set service standard.
  8. Believe that you may be able to upgrade if your new payment is at least a $1 more. So may be able to get an upgrade with more perks for minimal upcharge.
  9. You raise a good point. What should be the expectations for a CVP? I don't find my CVP to be proactive at all. Not a single call to advise of a new promotion that could work in our favour or discounts on shore excursions etc. Expecting too much? Or time for a new CVP? It seems that the onus is on us to stay on top of promotions and bring it to the CVP's attention who will then act on it. Perhaps they are too busy or they want to (or told to) maintain the revenue if they can. I think it would ultimately improve loyalty if they were more proactive.
  10. Maybe it's the difference between non refundable and refundable deposits.
  11. Surprised that with all the feedback that this has yet to be addressed by X. It's an obvious miss. Besides this board I would think that many who have cruised in this cabin have left comments. Perhaps they could consider shifting the TV over to the left on a swivel mount or placing the mirror above the desk to the right of the TV (shifting the drawers of the desk to the left side, if possible).
  12. From the deck plan the S2s are primarily on Deck 9 & 10. Those on Deck 9 are mid ship while those on deck 10 are forward or mid-aft. All the S3s are starboard mid ship in the path of the MC.
  13. Does anyone know why you can't apply Celebrity OBC to prepay gratuities before the cruise (even by speaking directly to X)? Is it simply a system issue? You can use OBC or credit card to prepay most everything else.
  14. This box would be specific to the Edge class. It wasn't on the revolutionized Summit.
  15. Since the Reflection cruise is 7 vs 10 days you could add a few days pre or post cruise to explore Amsterdam. Lots to see and quite walkable. We spent a few days in Amsterdam prior to a cruise a few years ago and it was the highlight of our trip. Also, the Reflection is a great ship.
