  1. Thank you to the OP for asking the question! While I love a good steak, I get super excited about steakhouse sides and appetizers. It will be nice to try a few different options. To those of you who have eaten at Fine Cut, what were your favorite appetizers and sides? I will likely order a smaller steak, and my fiance was blessed with a great metabolism and a healthy appetite, so I think we can manage a reasonable variety. EDIT: Maybe an equally important question is... What would you skip?
  2. So happy to see a new blog from you guys! Looking forward to your updates.
  3. Thank you for your review! I'm booked for the same Edge itinerary in February and cannot wait.
  4. This is consistent with what I've seen on my sailing. With the $1239 price, you do get the additional $200 OBC that you wouldn't in the "Best Rate" offer.
  5. Got the price reduction that I was hoping for. Thank you to the OP @mikkelhansen for the heads up!
  6. I've made multiple changes to my non-refundable reservation to match the current best available rate and haven't had to cancel or re-book. That said, I booked directly through Celebrity and they've made these changes very easy so I'm not sure what the process would be with a TA. I'm nearing an hour on hold with X right now to apply savings from this sale... If all goes well, I'll see a $675 price reduction based on today's rates. Fingers crossed. My final payment is due Monday.
  7. I think that’s the case!
  8. If I understand your question correctly... I went to the Celebrity website, searched for my sailing based on date/destination, then clicked Book Now. When I got to the "How many guests" screen, I entered the promo code "TARGETOBC" that the OP mentioned, and I followed the prompts as if I was creating a new booking identical to what I have already reserved. The final price was the same as my current reservation but included an additional $200 OBC so I called X and requested the change. I'm not sure if there's an easier way but it's the method I've used to monitor prices over the past few months. I hope that helps.
  9. @hcat It seems like it would be worth looking into for your suite. I called before I saw the terms you posted (new indiv bookings only) so I'm surprised they added the OBC to my existing booking. I suppose it depends on who is on the other line. I have all 4 perks and just double checked... The only thing that changed on my reservation is the OBC. I'll have no trouble spending an extra $200 πŸ™‚
  10. Thank you for sharing @hcat - I tested the code on a mock booking for my sailing (Aquaclass - Feb 2020) and it worked. I called X and was able to add an extra $200 OBC to my reservation.
  11. Good question. At the time I booked a regular IV so no bottle of wine would have been included when I was speaking with the agent. Prices have some down so I recently upgraded to AQ so I suppose there will be wine in the room regardless. πŸ™‚
  12. My fiance and I are getting married the day before we embark Edge in February, 2020. I mentioned the special occasion when booking and asked if X does anything special for these types of occasions. The X agent alluded to a bottle of wine but basically told me not to expect anything. That's totally fine with me - the cruise is enough of a celebration for us and I understand that many others are marking special occasions on these trips. However, I did notice that my invoice has a note next to Special Services that says "HONEYMOON." Not sure if that's how celebrations are noted but it will be interesting to see if they do anything special!
  13. Thank you for your input! I understand where you are coming from. I have read reviews on this board and on blogs, and I feel prepared for some of the downsides (e.g. waiting for others to finish each course). While the menu is simple, each course will suit us just fine as long as the food is well prepared. I've also looked up photos and videos - it looks unique and entertaining! Yes, it's very likely "one and done" for us but unlike anything I'll find near home so it's worth the risk in my opinion. Nothing like that for us, either but I think I saw discounts months ago when I first booked. Maybe they'll reappear πŸ™‚
  14. Oh dear! At least it was memorable! Sunset snacks before heading to the MDR... I love this idea! I'm spoiled with great sushi in the PNW and I had initially given Raw on 5 a pass. I didn't realize it had such nice views - and the food does look delicious!
  15. Great - I'll keep checking. Right now there is plenty of availability for Finecut on the first night (other nights are very limited) so we'll should be in luck if that discount is offered soon. Sounds magical! I have prepaid gratuities but plan to tip anyone who goes above and beyond... Fantastic idea to do so on the second-to-last night. We plan to try all four dining room so we may even tip throughout the trip. We'll see what works best for us when we get there.
