We are going on our first cruise as a couple and i found in the reservation all those romantic packages with champagne and fruits, but i was wondering if anyone got these? Are they worth it and if so which one is the best deal in your opinion?? i am thinking about the one with Veuve Cliqout, since i love the champagne, are the bottles big? or is it a tiny bottle?
please please please share
Hi Svetty: I ordered the Ultimate Romance package as a surprise for my DH when we sailed last April. It was a great package, glad I did it. The only thing wrong was it was all delivered at different times. We met the person delivering the flowers as we left our cabin after dropping off our luggage and he handed us the vase, no card. When we came back later the robes were there, and the vouchers for the breakfast, photos/frames etc. Next came the strawberries, after we had sailed. Unfortunately the champagne did not show up so we had to call. Didn't get it until the next day before dinner. That said, it was a nice touch and I would recommend it. The champagne was a full size bottle. Sorry, don't remember which one we had, but it was good!! We didn't finish it that night and the room steward put it on ice for us so it was cold when we were ready for it. The flowers were beautiful and lasted all week. The special breakfast was excellent. The photo and frame are very nice. The robes are comfortable and make a great souvenir. I plan on ordering again the next time we sail, but will stress to them that we want the champagne to toast sail away as we are actually sailing away!!
Where and when do you go ?? Enjoy. -Cathie
