In December on Silhouette they were loaded onto your card daily. They also had the HH in the Sky lounge or you could use them anywhere on the ship between 5-7PM. They don't carry over if unused and are not available on embarkation day and night of the senior officers cocktail party.

This is what someone posted from their January 2019 Reflection cruise. Unlimited in the Sky Lounge from 5 -7 PM and also three drinks loaded on your Sea Pass card each evening for the same hours as the CC HH.

Perfect! Thank you!

Looks like the only difference are two less nights and 2 hours instead of 3.5.

 Looking forward to Summit cruise even more!

 

Do you by any chance have a drink menu? Tried to google it, but get so different results.

I recently received a newsletter from Celebrity that say that beginning February, elite members now have unlimited number of cocktails from the Elite Drink Menu "at all bars and venues throughout the ship (excluding the Worls Class Bar and Magic Carpet) between 5 and 7pm".

Does that include the MDR?

Here's a link to the text of text of that letter:

 

 

It does not address the MDR....so your guess is as good as mine.

Correction to my post #4. Here is the updated news letter from Celebrity. Even better.

The choices may differ a bit from ship to ship. But should give you a good idea what is offered.

Nice! Cocktails are listed. On RCCL they would make some cocktails including martinis, but they were not listed so I wasn't very comfortable ordering them.

Thank you!

As long as you order something specifically on the elite drink menu, you are OK.  Most of the time there is some flexibility...for example bloody mary's aren't listed but, depending on who you ask, they may or may not be included. Other drinks with a slight variation are usually ok (dirty martini, old fashioned).  Sometimes you have to revert to "if bloody mary's aren't included, please give me a glass of spicy tomato juice, a vodka on the rocks and an empty glass" (yes, I've done that...with a smile...and a bloody mary appeared even though they told me it wasn't included because it wasn't on the menu). 

 

Celebrity staff really does work to please you...very friendly and helpful. Don't be afraid to ask if something is included or not.

I expect that it does NOT. At one time it did not, then it DID! I think now it has returned to the original plan so that the dining room is excluded. However, celebrity ships are famous for being inconsistent so who knows? It would help the decision whether or not to purchase a drink package though......

You can carry a glass of wine (or anything else) into the MDR when you sit down (or perhaps take a short break during dinner).

They some times change . On my last cruise there were 1600 Elite and up so the dining room was included. Just logistics of getting every one served in the short 2 hours

When on your cruise ask the CC host. Never hurts to ask. Lately there has been changes and variances from ship to ship.

You're welcome. But it never hurts to ask. :classic_wink:

The logistics of getting everyone served in 2 hours when the drinks are available at almost all bars?  Or you reference before Celebrity changed to include the regular bars area and only incled the Sky Lounge?

 

When was  you last cruise and what ship?

 

I beleive the new process was implemented effective across the fleet, just recently.

I was on Millenium last week. There were unlimited drinks from the Captains club menu, 5  - 7 at all venues except restaurants, world class bar, room service or mini bar.

 

This worked really well for me as we were travelling with non elite members so were able to join them for a drink in the bars rather than having to go to the club.

This was in May .. All except the World Bar and included the MDR. They felt that 1600 wanting drinks in 2 hours may be too much so the allowed to order while dining as well. It was great
