  1. What is your embarkation port? Which airport will you be arriving at?
  2. One of the sofas is a sofa-bed that when pulled out sleeps 2 people. The other does not pull out, but can be made into a bed that sleeps 1 person. When the sofa-bed is pulled out it does make it tighter to get to the balcony, but you can squeeze between the two sofas. The pull-out sofa was on the right side of the cabin when we had it on Summit a few years ago, but that could have changed by now.
  3. Agree with you 100%! We tried AC twice to try Blu. Did not like it either time (one an M class - Summit and one S class-Solstice). The FV cabins are awesome! Tons of space and storage. Much better than having a small just to eat in Blu. Balcony to die for!!!
  4. Love Koningsdam! We recommend, Pinnacle Grill, Canaletto (in the buffet area) Grand Dutch Cafe (wish it was open longer into the evening) Dive In......great fries, NY Deli.....wonderful sandwiches and pizza. Wish I was back onboard!
  5. We're waiting for spring 2021 Med cruises, as well. I think we should see these sailings released in November thru December of this year.
  6. We don't eat meat, so I can't comment on the beef burgers. However, they do have a very decent veggie burger at the grill, for those who care.
  7. In the shop that sells different brands of handbags (mostly Furla). Kate Spade bags did not appear until the last day at sea during the big sales of all the stores. People had to line up until 10:00 am when we were allowed to enter the shops area. I purchased 4 Kate Spade bags at very, very good prices. There were only about 10 KS bags put out for sale and they were gone in 5 minutes.
  8. For us, Zenith was first and then Merdian to Bermuda. We thought we were in the lap of luxury! Service and food were 5 star! Then we sailed a few times on Horizon! Loved those ships. Today's ships are fine and all, but nothing beats those days with Celebrity!
  9. Thank you for your review of Infinity. We sailed on her in May and loved it. The staff and crew were just amazing, as you would expect from Celebrity. Can't wait to see her "revolutionized"!
  10. Really, the only reason to book Aqua Class is to be able to dine in Blu. The other "perks" are meaningless. Save yourselves some big cash and change to standard balconies and you can all dine together in the MDR.
  11. I think perhaps if you're looking for information and answers to your questions, it would be prudent to park your sarcasm at the door. Everyone here, including cruisestitch, are trying to help you. Thank you.
  12. Yes, these are the periodic casino offers you receive by email for specific cruises. The other is the casino discount that you receive whenever you book a cruise. The discount rate is between 10-30% off the regular fare depending on itinerary and sail date. We been receiving this discount for a few years now and it has applied to every cruise we've booked. Just saved $900.00 (Canadian) for a cruise in 2020!
  13. We are offered a casino discount for all of our cruises booked with HAL. The discount is usually between 20-30% per person, depending on itinerary and sail date. We save hundreds of dollars on each cruise. Just priced a Nieuw Amsterdam sailing in 2020 and our discount was about $450.00 per person (Canadian) on a 7 night cruise. Now, you will ask "How do we get this casino discount?" The answer is that nobody knows! You just have to visit the casinos onboard on a regular basis during your cruise. It does not matter how much you bet. We are very low spenders, but we spend a couple of hours a day in the casino. Never spend more than $300.00 per cruise. We even asked in the casino how play is rated to receive this discount and they said that also do not know how HAL decides who gets it and who doesn't.
  14. Basically, yes. Just say the other party is on a different flight and will be arriving later to check in. The other party then does not show up and Celebrity won't care and your son will have a cabin to himself. Whomever paid for the second party, will be refunded port charges.
  15. I have not heard of anyone saying their bid was not accepted, however, it is quite possible. I spoke to Celebrity in May about this very issue (our cruise to the Med on Infinity) because we had placed a bid on a family cabin. I was told by the Celebrity rep that only accepted bids were notified. Who knows what is correct LOL!
