Hi, Kevin - Yes, it was a mistake to book a Royal Suite on your first cruise - you'll be spoiled for any other cabin from now on!
Seriously, obviously you've decided that you can afford it and you'll really enjoy the suite services, the butler, having a separate living/dining area in case one of you wants to sleep in or nap during the day, the nicer bathroom...
As you browse these boards you'll see lots of discussion about bringing on your own wine, liquor and other drinks. Celebrity officially allows you to bring on your wine and champagne, and will charge a corkage fee if you want to have it at dinner. There's no charge if you just enjoy it in your room. The Celebrity official policy is that you can't bring on liquor, but plenty of people do. Some may do it for cost savings; others may do it in order to have the wine/beer/liquor/soft drink they prefer. Personally, I'm not going to lug aboard some bottles of wine or liquor when Celebrity has a good wine and liquor selection at reasonable, hotel-like prices, but to each his or her own!
