  1. Well Turtles 06 you did a wonderful review.. You could be a professional reviewer. It was great meeting you guys and hope you have many more wonderful cruises.
  2. Kathynorth, you got everything correct. Now there are 4 active keys and that caused the real problem.. as for jelayne, sure its great if it works but you wouldn't be going to OV if you didn't have a room. also to answer another question, I had a family veranda, the other couple had a regular veranda. also phoenix dream, the other was not in the room when I first arrived. we had to go to guest services to key new keys. I didn't see other couple until we got back from lunch, it was their 2nd time in the room and the first time we saw them
  3. I am sure the people in the room may have been confused or jet lagged but if you walk in the room for the 2nd time and found 12 bottles of water on the table and 2 opened waters and a backpack on the bed wouldn't you think something strange. and yes the new keys were issued then we went back to room, unpacked some of backpack and then went to lunch (about 15 minutes) and the old keys were still not deactivated. yes it does seem odd
  4. I won't get into all the details (some them you won't want to here about). I boarded the Summit on Sept 8 with my heavy backpack on and headed up to my room all the way aft. After arriving at room, I find no room key on door. The room attendant told me that a couple already took the key, went in to the cabin and then left. I then took my heavy back and headed to guest services. After explaining the situation (they looked at me funny) they kind of blew it off and said they will issue me a new key and I could go back to my room. I said what about the people with the other key and said they would deactivate the key immediately. So went back to cabin (with heavy backpack) and entered cabin.. I seemed ok (no luggage, etc) so we unloaded backpack (bottle water) put money in safe and went out to lunch. After a leisurely lunch (standing in Oceanview cafe because no seats available) we went back to cabin to walk in and find the 2 strangers standing there. They were from Germany and only one spoke English. He said this was his cabin because the number on the key was the same as on the door (only my name was also on the key). After calling down to guest services (they wanted us to go back down) we finally got the strangers name and found out the were on the other side of the ship half way down the hall. They apologized and headed to their correct room. Later they brought back my dinner reservations and excursions that they thought was theirs. They also took my cruise critic party invitation so I never made it to meek and mingle. They did manage to throw away 2 opened water bottles and use the bathroom(ugh). You know what Forrest Gump says. So that was a very stressful way to start a 2 week cruise and maybe we were the first and only ones for this to happen to but IT MIGHT HAPPEN AGAIN. This probably could have been avoided if guest services had immediately deactivated the original room key that they said they would do.
  5. I am on the Summit right now and I am very happy with the internet. about as fast as my internet back home. steamed mob and there were a few stoppages but overall very goo

  7. Thanks tplusthree, did you have the surf package or the complete xcelerate (streaming) package? Could you use it all thru the ship. I guess it doesn't sound like its good enough to stream any videos and do you think its worth 179/302 to buy
  8. Thanks Turtles I will also be on summit next month (sept 8 and im trying to decide if I should get one of the internet packages. I figure there will be a lot of free time on sea days. Might go with surf package but ill decide later.
  9. Can you get daily internet instead of total cruise package on summit. If so, how much does it cost and do you get any discounts (like captain club classic)? also can you stream MLB network. Thanks
  10. Taking 14 day New England and Canada cruise in September and was wondering if anyone has been on a 14 day cruise and what laundry options Celebrity offers
