  1. So, I'm a pretty new RCCL sailor. (OK, I was on Legend of the Seas in 2002 but I am not sure that counts at all given that the product has probably TOTALLY changed.) We purchased the UDP for the two adults in our party for our upcoming November 2020 transatlantic. It was 336 per person for 14 nights. $24 per day. If I understand correctly we can have lunch in a specialty restaurant on all sea days (there are a LOT of those on a transatlantic), our 5 year old can dine from the children's menu for free, and our 9 year old can dine from the children's menu for $10. Is that correct? Also we were very interested in the wine discount- we are Diamond through reciprocity with Celebrity, so I think between Diamond Lounge and discounted wine at our dinners we should be perfectly fine so we are not purchasing a beverage package. I assume that since we will have purchased the entire bottle of wine we could take it with us (back to our room) if so desired, like any other ship. Right? Thank you!
  2. I want VOOM surf and stream for one device. Should I get it now for 12.99 or wait and see Diamond price onboard? Thank you!

  4. Thanks- did not realize there would be transfers for sure (especially complimentary.) Ultimately we decided to change our flights and leave from MIA instead. We get home a little sooner, which is nice. Still good to know of these options.
  5. Hello, When we originally booked our cruise, it returned to FLL rather than MIA. That has changed, but our flights are from FLL either way. At 420pm! I am not able to get into the Crystal website (it's often a little buggy for me) so I can't see what any potential options are through them. Do they have options I can purchase to give us something to do in the interim? What time should we roughly expect to disembark? We considered renting a car but doing something through Crystal would be so easy. Open to ideas. Thanks!
  6. I really like breakfast (and lunch) at the spa cafe. Give it a try!
  7. Our only Sky Suite experience on Celebrity was on Mercury which did not have Luminae, but we'll be sailing SS on Equinox in January so I am following with interest. I agree; serving cold caprese salad is silly. Really any restaurant on a "modern luxury" ship should serve items at correct temps but definitely the suite restaurant.
  8. I agree with your observation about vessel sinks! Impossible to neatly wash your face in one. I've really enjoyed reading your observations. We board Serenity in just over 3 weeks. I'm traveling with my mother- it's been nearly 10 years since we went on a cruise together although we used to do so frequently. These days I'm either with my husband, or husband and kids. Maybe we will join a dining table of 6 or 8 just for some variety in conversation! I am sure we will have fun either way.
  9. You are right- I stand corrected. Same concept still applies but not that category.
  10. I think of it rather as a "discount" in that you get to pay the next category down (as long as within same category.) So if I want to book C1 I get a "discount" to pay C2. Same idea but somehow seems easier for me to think about.
  11. These are all very good perspectives. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and information! Definitely we'll appreciate the laundry and the internet discount.
  12. I have AmEx Plat and got the email within 2 hours of paying.
