  1. It seems as though this thread has also identified some concerns about the recent cabin renovation other than the safety issue in the shower/tub combo ie. lack of grab bars for balance and stability. I have made my concerns known to corporate and will let you all know if I receive a response. Think of any hotel or cruise line with a shower/tub combo. Most are better equipped for safety. Celebrity appears to have fallen below the industry standard in this regard. I will not continue to harp on the subject in this forum but will do what is best for me as to whether I will cancel the upcoming cruise. Thank you to all who responded to my original post.
  2. Thank you for the suggestion. I will certainly do some research and will likely try one at home, next to my already installed grab bar.
  3. We appreciate that you are checking in to this and reporting back. I’m sure that many of us share this concern. It seems like a no brainer as most hotels and ships do have this basic safety feature. We plan to lobby Celebrity as well. Thankfully we have a refundable deposit and have until April to make our decision.
  4. We are sailing on the Summit in a Sky Suite next summer. Although we do not require a handicap accessible cabin, we do need the security of grab bars to enter the steep bathtub and maintain balance. Does anyone know if these safety devices have been part of the recent renovation? This may be a deal breaker for us if we can’t feel able to shower safely. We would really appreciate your input.
  5. Is Francis Calimag back in the rotation as a concierge on Grandeur? I understand he was most recently on Radiance after longtime service on Grandeur.
  6. Valid question, but no preconceived notions. Checking in hasn’t been an issue for us no matter what cabin or loyalty level we had at the time. After all, you can’t get your cabin any earlier than anyone else. Just thought I’d ask and maybe hear from folks who may say they didn’t even notice the program existed or maybe that reserved seating was impacted. That would be pure speculation. The only thing I thought was kind of neat was that carry on luggage drop off was available until cabins were ready. Hate schlepping luggage up to the Windjammer.
  7. Has the Key program had any impact on Suite, Pinnacle, or Diamond Plus passengers on smaller Vision Class ships?
  8. Saw him on our first cruise on Song of America 25 years ago. Great act. I wonder if it’s the same guy?
  9. Yes, I am fully aware of the Suite Lounge designation on Adventure. Wasn’t sure about Explorer hence the and/or. Regardless, it was a nice touch on Explorer. Family is also enjoying the Diamond Lounge as there are few D’s onboard.
  10. Thanks for the info. Wasn’t expecting it, but one can always hope.
  11. Family members on Explorer who are sailing in a suite were offered a lite lunch in the Concierge Lounge/Suite Lounge on boarding day. We are sailing soon in a suite on Adventure. Is this something we may also look forward to?
  12. Yes, one of the MDRs on Princess for a specified limited time and quite nice too! That said, we also enjoy the Windjammer on embarkation day and enjoy the excitement and anticipation of fellow passengers as we begin a cruise. The OP may enjoy it even more as a suite passenger by dropping carry on baggage in the Concierge Lounge if they arrive before rooms are ready. Have a great cruise!
