Celebrity Air was actually $150.00 more than booking direct with Air Canada, PLUS the $400.00 for upgraded seats, so no good deal for us this time.

Well, we bit the bullet and booked Infinity to the Med 11 nights in May 2019. We did, however, book a large oceanview instead of our usual balcony. Airfare from Toronto to Barcelona return was...

You will be perfectly dressed! Enjoy your Infinity cruise. We'll be sailing on her May 2019 and no suits will be taken with us this time.
This is why we keep coming back to Celebrity!

You did very well! I just tried to do the same with our booking, which we booked with one complimentary perk (we chose free grats) and change it to two perks adding $300.00 OBC. The extra cost was...

We sailed on Solstice to Alaska last May. We were in the casino til at least midnight every night and loads of people still up and about. Lounges and bars seemed to be very lively, too. It also...

Sorry, but no. Concierge on Summit is really not much of anything. We've stayed in Concierge class many times because we like the location, but never saw a concierge or even told one existed. It's...

50 minutes between flights is really quite tight. The airport in Amsterdam is huge and very, very busy. It's my least favourite airport in Europe. That being said, you may get lucky and the day...

Great advice re Hotel San Giorgio. Stayed there last May on our Med cruise. Takes you back to a different era of hotels. Loved the breakfast! Gorgeous views sipping morning cappuccino. Actually,...

Since you have already booked your flights, it's too late to tell you to fly in at least 1-2 days prior to your cruise, which is the advice of most of us here on c.c. So, you should not consider...

This is just so silly. Of course, it's not a "rip off"! Your issue is with the UK regulations, not with Captains Club. We receive excellent benefits (Elite+) and appreciate it very much.

Now, if only they would ban smoking in the casino on Koningsdam! Wondering what will happen with Nieuw Statendam. It would be a shame to have smoking on a brand new beautiful ship.

No, I really cannot "speak for all 2600 or so passengers on that cruise". Just making an observation, not quoting an official polling of passengers on board. So, to correct my statement. We did...

I believe the ship is Nieuw Amsterdam. Sorry for such a tragic loss. Condolences to his family and the staff and crew.

Except, of course, the casino on MOST HAL ships. And the smoke that drifts out of the casino. I'm all for outdoor smoking areas, but absolutely not indoors.

We sailed for 14 days on K'dam in the Med and crossed The Bay of Biscay (notoriously rough seas) and never felt much movement at all. Now, we have our "sea legs" because of frequent cruising, but...

When you called Celebrity what was their response? Did they give you a reason for the additional charges? You say they didn't help you, so I'm curious as to what their explanation was.

We've been in Aqua Class twice and 19 times in MDR. We prefer the MDR. Blu was not for us, but I know lots of people love it. Never had a bad meal in the MDR on Celebrity or HAL.

Food is so subjective so not really right to compare. We like both, but Celebrity IMHO is a notch above. Service is very similar, with maybe HAL in a slight lead.
I agree with you! If you're bored on Celebrity,...
I agree with you! If you're bored on Celebrity, then you need to stop cruising.

I certainly don't know anyone who cruises primarily to gamble in the casino. You can go to Vegas for that. We cruise for many reasons, itinerary, food, service, and for enjoying all areas of the...

We are Elite+ with Celebrity so we're quite familiar with the product and we received some lovely perks. Itinerary is important to us and Eurodam and some of the others that have no smoking just...

As disappointing as it was, we cancelled our K'dam Med cruise for May 2019 and rebooked with Celebrity. We really love Koningsdam, but our last cruise was really impacted by the casino smoking. We...

Never had an email for a casino special. We receive HAL's casino rate (30%) discount on pretty much all cruises, all the time. If the fare goes down, so does the casino rate. I would be very...
