  1. Going on the Equinox next month aft deck 9, plan on taking pictures looking down & up from our cabin. Also plan on hanging out at the Sunset bar and will grab some pictures to put in a review. BonVoyage Dawna
  2. Keep it coming 😀 Next month can't get here soon enough! BonVoyage Dawna
  3. Called and got ours upgraded from the Premium to Drinks & More on our cruise next month for $126 so basically $26 because we would spend $100 easily in the casino anyway. 😎 (Note the Drinks & More package is currently 10% off in the planner). BonVoyage Dawna
  4. How did you do it online in the cruise planner? If I put it in the cart it wants the full amount. I would rather do that than call. BonVoyage Dawna
  5. Anyone know how that works with the Premium Package as a perk and upgrading to the Drinks & More? Online Premium is $69pp on our cruise if you were to pay for it, Drinks & More is on sale for $76.50 so $7.50x7days=$52.50+additional tip? but $50 casino credit makes it a no brainer IF that is how it would be calculated. Thoughts? Also I assume that would take a phone call, can you use your available showing OBC for something purchased over the phone? BonVoyage Dawna
  6. Curious, we booked 2 people for hot glass on a slight sale for $107 but that was when you had to pay additional for the piece you make. NOW they only offer a package for $120pp that includes the piece you make. Anyone know how this is being handled on the ship? I don't have the old wording for the HotGlass experience but this is the new wording. Also anyone have a photo of the Mermaid Mug or Whale Tail Mug, we intended to make the tumbler before the change. 52 days woohoo! Overview Discover the ancient art of glassblowing, invented during the Roman Empire, in one of our world-famous hot glass classes, offered exclusively by Celebrity Cruises. Use vibrant colors and high heat to create your own unique piece of art from one of eight impressive designs. Your handmade souvenir will remind you of all the amazing experiences you had on your vacation for years to come. Classes are extremely popular, and sell out quickly, so make sure you reserve your spot today. SOUVENIR OPTIONS: • Wave Vase • Vase • Starfish • Heart • Pumpkin • Jellyfish • Whale Tail Mug/Mermaid Mug • Tropical Fish BonVoyage Dawna
  7. Thanks for the review!! Can't wait for Feb 🙂 BonVoyage Dawna
  8. You said you had 8 hours to kill. Seems we have experienced airlines have a 4/6 hours max early luggage check in policies. Sure this wasn't the case? We have been to many airports more than 2 hours early. This will cause a real issue for us in Feb if we can't check our bags until we are within 2 hours and they cut off luggage 60 minutes prior to departure, EEK! Can you elaborate please? Thanks! BonVoyage Dawna
  9. It is available for our Equinox cruise in February too. We looked at it but it sounded like a pain to get off the ship then wait to get back on just for a few hours back on the ship. Equinox leaves at 3:30 and I assume we would need to be off much earlier than that. We opted to rent a car for $80 and plan to just drive around and explore or maybe hit up a movie, find a place for a nice lunch then head to the airport. BonVoyage Dawna
  10. Thanks! Booked the Behind the Scenes tour online :) BonVoyage Dawna
  11. We are Diamond Plus on Royal and trying Celebrity for the first time. As Diamond Plus on Royal we are offered free behind the scenes tours for the Bridge, Galley & Stage. As an Elite on Celebrity do they offer anything similar. The behind the scenes tour is on sale for our cruise but not sure if I want to book it if we will be offered a free tour once onboard. I realize the tours are a bit different but curious what Celebrity does for Elite if anything. BonVoyage Dawna
  12. Yes, all the way forward but 2 bedrooms! One is back open today but $500 more then we paid. We are gonna stick where we are at. See ya onboard! BonVoyage Dawna
  13. Yes, back up in a hurry today as I looked about an hour after I called my TA and it was up $600 more. Wasn't certain she got me moved but then checked my boarding info and she had, whew. Prices had dropped on Friday but dealing with a TA my hands were tied 😞 The last Family Veranda was also open for the same amount we paid as well but disappeared 1st thing Monday morning. Would have loved to have a bedroom with a door in the cabin. We did give up a wide balcony 7364 for a normal width but two less flights to climb each time we head to the action. Agree the perks were not worth the cost they were asking when we originally booked. Looking forward to our first Celebrity experience. BonVoyage Dawna

  15. Just upgraded from a Sunset on deck 7 to a Concierge cabin deck 9 on the Equinox so we could improve our location on the ship without any increase in fare. 3 flights of stairs is much easier then 5 after the long walk from the aft. 🙂 I am getting all kinds of conflicting info on what a "Concierge" cabin offers over the standard veranda. Any recent experiences? Consistent seems to be a pillow menu, priority tenders (we don't plan on getting off on the port we have a tender), priority embark/disembark (Elite with our Royal status so is this really a perk?) but then the lines blur, bottle of sparkling wine, afternoon canapés, X Keychain, Tote Bag, fruit, binoculars, umbrella, different shower head, Exclusive lunch upon boarding. We are happy we got to move up at no cost since these cabins were about $800 more when we booked but just curious what to expect and what not to expect. 🙂 Pays to watch your prices. BonVoyage Dawna
