Celebrity MoveUp Offer Tracker - Please Do Not Post Questions Here!

Recommended Posts

 

  • Ship:  Summit
  • Length of Cruise: 10 days
  • Cruise Sail Date: June 27, 2019
  • Date email offer received: May 5
  • Captain’s Club Tier [“PREVIEW” = first Celebrity Cruise]: Elite
  • Booked through Celebrity Direct OR via TA: Celebrity Direct
  • Current Cabin: 3123
  • Bid?  Yes/No: Yes

If YES -  Bidding Details:

  • Cabin Category: Veranda / Family Veranda / Concierge / Aqua
  • Bid Offer:  $310 CAD  / $500 CAD / $385 CAD / No bid on Aqua (felt that minimum was too high)
  • Notification Date: June 25
  • Accepted / Rejected:  All Rejected

General Comments (offer details, etc.) : Min bids were: Veranda $135 CAD, FV - $205, CC-$270, AQ- $405. Bid more conservatively at outset and increased bids over time as it became apparent that inventory was tight. Thought that our final bids were quite reasonable at 75% of maximum bid and 2.25 to 2.4 times the minimum bid. Bids remained in pending status until today - 48 hours before sail away.

Found this all somewhat strange. There was a lot of cabins available through early May so believed that eventually we could upgrade to a veranda at little or no cost.  Prices did drop but not enough to make it work. Then cabins sold out very quickly and prices went back up. Were were boxed in and then had to rely more heavily on the move up process. I'm guessing that the availability was too tight to support a lot of move ups for this cruise. Live and learn!

I originally placed the Tracker in the thread initiated by CruisingChick on April 23, 2018.  However, the tracker gets lost amongst all the many questions/comments (understandably).  Thus, I have decided to create a single thread for tracking purposes only (filtering out everything else).  

The purpose of this thread is strictly for compiling information into a spreadsheet.   I will be running this tracker for ~ 6 months to see if any interesting trends come about and/or for general information purposes.  Will reevaluate its usefulness thereafter. 

IF you wish to participate, answer the following questions as best as you can and I will transfer the info to the Tracker. 
Please do not ask questions here (redirect your questions/comments to the CruisingChick thread of April 2018).

 

CELEBRITY MOVE UP TRACKER (effective April 19, 2019; but can back-fill data, if available)

  • Notification Date: 28 June 2019

General Comments (offer details, etc.) I don't expect this offer will be accepted. They will notify me by email up to two days before sailing, then automatically deduct funds from my credit card.

DH and I bid for move-up to Celebrity Suite and Royal Suite on upcoming Summit cruise to Bermuda, 7-7-19.  As of today have not heard iour bids are going to be winners.  I am guessing probably not.  We bid more on the Royal Suite than the CS.  We already are in a Sky Suite, and it's a nice one with one of the larger balconies (have been in this suite twice before) so if we don't get the upgrade we will still be happy.  However the waiting on pins and needles to hear if our bid wins is killing me.  I am thinking probably we won't get the upgrade because we bid only around half of what the max bid suggested for either.  But still I am dreaming and would like to know either way.  I guess I will have to wait until Friday this week perhaps.

General Comments (offer details, etc.)

Had done a paid upgrade from a SS1 to a Celebrity Suite on June 24th. Got the bid invitation the next day. Our bid was extremely low and the little meter said "weak" so we were expecting the bid to be rejected. We only bid on the Royal, not the PH.

General Comments (offer details, etc.)  Bid on Celebrity Suite and Royal Suite.  Still waiting to hear, bids still showing "pending".  Bid $420 pp for Celebrity Suite; $650 pp for Royal Suite.  Both bids are in the "weak" category, but significantly above the opening bid.  After I check on the original offer I will plug in the ranges for the bids.  We did not bid on the Penthouse Suite as the opening bid was $900 pp and I don't think we want all that space.  Our Sky Suite will be just fine if our bids are rejected, but the waiting is killing us, especially when so many passengers have had bids accepted on cruises which sale weeks after ours!

Sky suite: from £720 GBP pp, Celebrity suite: from £960, Royal suite: from £1,600 !!!

Very surprised to be sent a second email. The suggested bid prices are from the second email. The prices were virtually the same in the first one. I thought they were sky high, perhaps so did most people and very few bids were placed.
