It's on the website now. We are booking it tomorrow. Glad the schedule finally came out. We normally book a sky suite, but I think we are just going to book a premium balcony as I really don't think on this cruise we will spend much time in the room. Just hoping some of the airfares come down.

Thanks! I've been waiting for months. But I just went to the Celebrity website and didn't see the info. What am I doing wrong? I guess I'll keep trying. Need the schedules before we can book.

The website is being tempermental. Pick a date in 2004 then go to Price this Itinerary, in the drop down date box, you can select a 2005 date.

Most of Europe is available by calling direct. However Transatlantic thus far is still not available. <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Cruise Junky:

Just my own take on this- I'd much rather have first choice of cabin location than $200 credit. The cruise takes a big financial bite, and then to have to compromise on what cabins will be available later on this summer? Nah- I grabbed mine this morning and got the cabin of my choice.

My suggestion is book now and get the cabin you want. Either book through a TA or give them the booking after the fact and tell them what you will be doing.

Then, when you are on a cruise, price the same ship/date. If the price is no worse, book it (any cabin will do). Then give the TA the new reservation and have him/her put the cabin you want on the booking with the credit. Then cancel the original reservation. Worst case, you might have two deposits outstanding, but you can frequently get 7-10 days before a deposit is due when you book on board.

Just as an FYI I got a quote from *********** for the May 15, 2005 sailing and they were about $400 us pp cheaper than Celebrity's site.

I booked the 5/15 Barcelona to Venice tonight on CQ. Managed to snag 8045, and was surprised to find out that it is now CC? Have I missed something? However, I can confirm Cruise Junky's price - our final price was between $800-900 less than Celebrity's. How could I say "No" to such a deal?

I am hoping the May 7-23 gap is a transatlantic from Galveston. *********** users: can you book cruiseline hotel add-ons with *********** along with the cruise and air?

Cheryl,
I have only cruised the Med once. On Millennium last May- the weather was perfection everywhere we visited. I especially liked it because flowers were blooming everywhere and the hills green. So we booked the May 15 sailing for next year.
