  1. I couldn’t sign up from Canada 🇨🇦
  2. We received two extra points hours after the first batch as well ... CONGRATULATIONS on your new tier 🌟
  3. Moi Aussi! there were no dates that matched the first sailing so the light bulb went off and re-read the question - LOL! and saw BOOKING vs. sailing ... almost got me, but nope!
  4. Has anyone received their March PUPs yet? It’s April 14th and I’m expecting a slew of them and there is zippety-doo-dah so far.
  5. Yup! and the 3-day mandatory hotel stay is ~ $2000. If after 3 days, you test positive - then they have the right to ship you off at a facility of their choosing (FUN!) Federal quarantine applies for travellers entering Canada. If you can enter Canada and you have no symptoms, you must quarantine for a minimum of 14 days. At this time, you are not excluded from quarantine, even if you have: been vaccinated for COVID-19 tested negative for COVID-19 recovered from COVID-19 Flying into Canada – your quarantine period includes a mandatory 3 night pre-paid booki
  6. Never: Carnival (our first cruise, never to go back - not for us) Always: Celebrity (second cruise onwards - we have tried nothing else) To Try: Would like to try Cunard, HAL, and Princess. Cunard for the experience. HAL/Princess for comparison.
  7. One of our best experiences ever was in Luminae with Chef Abinash. When he found out we were vegetarians, he went out of his way to surprise us each day. He asked what was one of my favourite Indian dishes and VOILA! the next day at lunch he proudly presented to us delicious Dahl and Prata The next day he surprised us with a beautiful curry dish for dinner It was such an amazing week and Chef Abinash was just a gem!!
  8. We had a similar experience where the Sous Chef was quite proud of the offerings. Each day the offerings varied and were very good.
  9. We had no issues at all with our FCC. I had the “codes” from the email that they sent, plugged it into the web site and it was automatically applied to my chosen sailing. Suggest / recommend contacting CelebrityEngagementCenter AT celebrity DOT com Cheers, HVB 🌻
  10. We have had excellent experiences while on board Celebrity as strict vegetarians / sloppy vegans (I still eat cheese from time to time). Whether in the Main Dining Room, BLU, Luminae, or the Specialty Restaurants - ALL venues have been very accommodating to our dietary lifestyle. Recently, as well - the Oceanview Buffet have had a “Vegan Station” which was very popular on our sailings for Vegans / Non-Vegans alike!

  12. My point was a business can set their own rules. Don’t like the rules? Then don’t be a patron of said business. Simple as that.
  13. Agree! as the ole’ saying goes ... “No Shirts, No Shoes, No Service”.
  14. Truly was the most spectacular sail-away of all of our cruises Even more special when shared with new Friends (most of which we have kept in touch with)
