  1. I feel Celebrity may be too subdued for your group. As others have mentioned, the young children activities are limited, but IMO so are the activities for your 30-somethings. Night life on Celebrity is pretty quiet after 9 PM. RCC is a good option. You also may have some luck with NCL.
  2. How many points do you get for this category per night?
  3. I didn't take the OP's post as trying to blame others. He said he takes responsibility. He was lamenting that NCL didn't offer him a future cruise credit and that he was out lots of money. I didn't get the sense that he/she was blaming NCL for anything...just hoping they would be more sympathetic to the situation. Maybe I just read it wrong.
  4. This is information that the average traveler would not have. I'm glad it worked for you but gosh, you make it sound so easy. I'm sure when the OP was at his departure airport hearing that he would not be allowed to board his flight, the last thing going through his mind was a scheme like the one you just described.

  6. One of the things I really like about having a suite is the embarkation day lunch in Luminae. If a suite category wasn't an option, I would book CC for the embarkation day lunch available to that category in the MDR. Being able to have a sit down meal away from the hustle and bustle of the OVC is a huge value to me. I think CC is the only category besides a suite that offers this and I would book this category over a standard balcony for this perk alone. Not sure what else I would want to see associated with this category.
  7. How did you go about getting the Drinks and More package? Upgrade ahead of time? Did you start with the Classic package or the Premium package? Thank you!
  8. Just reached out to her myself. Thank you for the information.
  9. Great information and thank you for the map. DH and I cycle in just about every city we visit so this is so helpful. Do you know if it is necessary to rent bikes in advance or can you walk up?
  10. This is really good to know. I had no idea that the bar staff were under pressure to get upgrade quotas. We've always had the premium package to start with so never really paid much attention. Guess we will have to find someone we like pretty early on.
  11. We currently have the Classic as well and will upgrade to the Premium. I don't see how to upgrade in the cruise planner. Each package appears to be priced under the assumption that the traveler does not have a package of any kind...in other words, full price. How does one tell it that you already have a package and just want to upgrade? And how does it work if you go from the classic to the drinks & more? Does this upgrade bump you to premium? or do you have to first upgrade to premium and then upgrade to drinks & more? I've read what is says in the planner and find there's not enough information.
  12. I just looked at the tier benefit descriptors and it actually says Priority Embarkation, where available. Hard to believe that it wouldn't be available in Miami...our embarkation port as well. In the past, I have found the check in lines to be pretty short and quick regardless of status. I am a little more concerned about debarkation because of flight times. So debarkation lounge offers no real priority? Just a nice place to sit until one's group is called?
