Seriously disappointing. We're not Zenith and we picked Celebrity because we're huge craft beer drinkers. On Reflection we found it difficult to get beers from Michael's (they weren't skunked because...

We're in the same boat. I called to upgrade and got a confirmation from Celebrity (we booked directly) but nothing is shown on our reservation.

Just sailed Reflection Concierge and had foot stools. Was a very nice perk for the upgrade.

We had the premium package and found that a good 75% of the beers were included. The ones that weren't were mostly the 750ml bottles (Chimay, Lindemanns, Hitachino) and the stronger Belgians like...

YES. Exactly this. Our dailies from Reflection last week would say 'Michael's Club open 5pm-12am' or whatever.

Down we would trod at 5pm in hopes of scoring a pre-dinner craft beer. Then we'd...

On Reflection they did a number of tastings - bourbon, scotch, and craft beer. There weren't huge crowds, but at least a dozen people for each. The football game brought in a ton of people one...
Such a letdown
I was on the Reflection last week, booked largely to experience craft beer at sea. What OP says is completely true. Michael's was never open before 5pm. Usually it was open from 5, but until 7...

We were just on Reflection and dined in Tuscan Grille on formal night and were wearing nice, but casual, clothes. Others in different specialty restaurants found the same...

I always enjoyed the cigar bar on the RCI ships. It was a bit odd frequently being the only woman in there, but whatever. I'm used to it. They are very well designed and unobtrusive and a nice...

WOO HOO! BEER PHOTOS!

Can't wait to be on her in less than a month.

Thanks for the uploads :-)

I have a *huge* stuffed Nemo that I take with me when I travel. So far he's been on several cruises and all over Europe and Israel/Egypt. He's maybe 24" long and makes an excellent pillow. He likes...

I view Heineken the same way! DH and I were just in Brussels for the Beer Weekend and avoided Heineken and Stella like the plague. Why, with sooo many tasty beers, do people drink that pee water?!

Most high ABV beers can be aged. This would include Barleywines, Belgians, Imperial Stouts, Double/Imperial IPAs, etc. The alcohol keeps the flavor from going off. I've cellared Belgians for up to 8...

Unless I'm mistaken, Wind is Canada only. Great for urban areas in Canada, but not useful on a Caribbean cruise.

Some ports will show as 'US' on an American carrier (San Juan, St. Thomas) so it may be that you get Rogers' American pricing there, but that's still ridiculously expensive. If you're going to be...

My mistake, but it was originally not Concierge at all. I booked it as 1A.

This also happened with some of the aft cabins on deck 9. I was in 9299, which was listed as 1A and then got reclassified as C1. They booted me out and down to deck 6. I was not pleased, as I had...

I was in Amsterdam in September (my 11th trip) and rented a house boat on the Brouwersgracht. It was excellent value and we enjoyed having a kitchen and be able to make our own breakfast. The...

Apparently these are up-to-date now and my cabin which was originally CC, then declassified to 1A (when I reserved it), has been reclassified CC and I've been kicked out to another cabin. With no...

We're less than 3 months out now for our voyage. First time on Celebrity and looking forward to it!

We'll be spending as much time at Michael's drinking craft beer as possible.

I don't think so. I just upgraded to cabin 9299 on my upcoming Reflection cruise. On my reservation it indicates it is an Ocean View Stateroom Veranda (1A). On the deck plan it shows Concierge...

We're sitting on several of the Stone 'Vertical' series from the past 11 years, while we wait for 12.12.12 to be released. I've also aged barleywine and Belgian Strongs for up to 10 years without...

I'm a native Floridian. I HATE snow. We've already got a cruise booked for this Winter and will be enjoying the Tampa breweries/pubs pre-cruise, but I'll keep your island in mind for later trips!
