Best way to spend credit??

Recommended Posts

We booked an Alaskan cruise for the end of July.  Because we are celebrating our 20th anniversary, we chose to have all the perks, which includes a 300 cabin credit.  We have arranged/purchased our excursions, and we are usually more than satisfied with the food in MDR.  Is there a specialty restaurant that is best on Solstice?  So..... what are some suggestions for spending this credit?  Yes, I know this is a "good problem" to have.

We enjoy wine, so we are taking the Riedel wine tasting class.  We also booked Qsine based on reviews.  I don't know if it's on Solstice since this will be our first Celebrity cruise.

That is an easy question to answer.  For your anniversary, go to Murano for a special dinner.  It is the best restaurant on the ship. As for food there, not much can beat the chateaubriand for 2.

Keesar is on the right track - this is your anniversary.

also you are on an Alaska cruise! This is one of the most port intensive, high excursion cost cruises you can do. Two to look for (I don’t know which ports you are visiting) - the Misty Fjords floatplane, and in Skagway, the helicopter ride up to the glacier to drive the dogsled actually in snow. So worth it!

Couples massage, or a weeks pass to the Persian garden. Wonderful to take the steam, sit on those heated  loungers and watch the amazing scenery

If you gamble you can prebuy chips or slot credits at a discount

Keep in mind that you do not need to specify what the OBC is spent on.  The $300 will just be deducted from what you owe on your total bill.  You may know this already but thought it would be worth mentioning.

You have been provided with a list of how you may spend your OBC. Now you need to decided what's the best way for YOU to spend it.
