  1. We sailed on the reflection in March last year and there was a guy wearing pretty shabby shorts and t shirts in Blu every night. He looked just slightly better thana homeless person. We were thinking maybe they lost thier luggage.
  2. Not sure how 'fresh" the sushi on the ship is though. I've tried it a couple of times and it's been mushy like it was frozen and thawd a few times too many. I love good sushi/sashimi and have it at least once a week. I am fortunate to have a really nice place close to home that gets fresh fish from all over the world so I'm a bit spoiled. We get to try lots of unusual fish that you don't often see. Bluefin is still my favorite tough but Hirame (halibut) is a close second. The OP really should try some "real" sushi or sashimi, when fresh it's fantastic (well most if it anyway). Sushi on 5 has some very good appitizers and the lobster ramen is good. I've tried quite a few of the rolls most are ok but I don't think they are as good as any decent decent sushi bar on land will serve. But they do have some great cocktails!
  3. Because Celebrity has no clue how to make a coherent functional website
  4. That's pulled right off the US website, but it's pulled from the cruise planner for my upcoming cruise.
  5. And in case there is still some confusion, here's the info from the website
  6. Yes, soft drinks, water and specialty coffee are included. Pretty much any drink $9 or under you can get with the package.
  7. if you want a variety of entertainment options the Summit probably isn't going to provide it. The main theater shows are typically not great. In the evening there will be one thing happening at a time, maybe two, so not a lot of options. Early evening there might be a band or DJ in the Atrium, later 10ish, there will be a silent disco somewhere or a pool deck party, late night there might be a band or DJ in one of the 2 main lounges. If you like some energy in the evenings Celebrity can be a challenge. Now food and drink they do pretty well, and with the often included beverage packages it makes sailing Celebrity a lot more attractive. My girls (early 20's to early 30s) like Celebrity but not as much as they like RCCL, but they are not big partiers.
  8. Smart friends! but the odds are still the odds, and yes someone wins the lotto every week. I'm still waiting.
  9. Your chances of getting it are about the same as wining the lottery and something like 3% of those that get it die. Over-reaction much?
  10. I've never seen them show up on mine. I think I've read on here that some people see them closer to sailing. Maybe I'm not looking but my experience is that only the OBC shows up. Take along a paper copy of your booking just in case but I have never had any issue with not getting my perks. I just looked at my upcoming reservation (23 days out) and only OBC is showing in my cruise planner and the perks are not on the edocs either.
  11. Yup, that's normal. I've never seen the other stuff show up in my planner except the OBC. I always take a paper copy of my booking along just in case although so far I've never had an issue.
  12. Regular Martini's are included under the classic package and even though not technically shown I've gotten Jack and Coke but Jim and coke would be the norm (honestly I cant tell the difference once coke is added). The large specialty martinis served at the martini bar are over the $9 limit. Most are around $12 so you would pay $3.60 if you wanted one.
  13. By the signature it looks like they are going on the Infinity so no World Class Bar. One of the reasons I always try to book an S-Class ship! To the OP, don't worry about "what the best is" or getting the most expensive. Worry about getting what you like. And yes, the bartenders will pour you the well booze unless you specify a brand and not all the bars will have every brand so look what's back there and order something they have. Unless you are in one of the higher end lounges don't bother asking the bartender to recommend or pick something. Most of them are just drink makers not trained bartenders (and last crusie they may have been a waiter). If you do wish to get some advice or try some new stuff head to one of the inside bars (renevous, passport bar etc) in the early afternoon when they are not busy. Then you can actually chat with the bartender. Best part of the package is that you can try new stuff without worrying about whether you will like it or not.
  14. On the S-class they usually are, but you can't get them there (unless the bartender really likes you )
  15. I think some of the best cocktails on the ship are in Sushi on 5 ( I like the jalepeno vodka one, the wife likes the spicy mango-tini). The World Class Bar has several good ones, my favorites are the Zacapa old fashioned and the buck stops here. the sunset Martini at the Martini Bar is pretty good too.
