  1. I hope they make cancellations a little more far ahead - for changes or cancellations of flights, hotels, pre cruise for example - that would make things easier.
  2. We have a back to back on Edge scheduled for March - hoping it will sail. However, if it is the first sailing since the pandemic started, not sure if I feel safe enough to go -prefer to wait till next year. My final payment is due December 7 - if WE decide to cancel can we get our total deposit back? Or is that just lost? I would hate to pay the full amount for the back to back - then if Celebrity cancels - it will take a long time to get funds and it is a large amount. Maybe all will be fine - just checking if we would get the full deposit or if that would be lost if we cancel on our own? Thank you for clarifying.
  3. I receive emails from Celebrity quite often. Of course ads about making purchases for specialty restaurants, shore excursions, etc. for our booked 2 future cruises. I read about Power Up on CC but NEVER received an email about them. I am retired in mid sixties? Wondering why I never got them. I just wrote to Celebrity, and after about a week, I finally got an email and enjoyed looking up the ports to find the correct answers to the quiz. I agree with a prior poster - have no desire to use FB or other social media. This quiz was a way to learn and get a few more points.
  4. I know this is for suite guests only - just meant didn't take reservations? - as Blu did not take reservations when we sailed Aqua class. We are booked for March - who knows if this will happen. We had 2 cruises canceled this year - hope by 2021 things are better! Thanks for your answers.
  5. Is this suite restaurant the same as Blu - cannot make reservations - just go when you are ready to dine? Thank you!
  6. If anyone has stayed in either of these sky suites - please send a picture of balcony if you have one. Also, was there much noise being near the elevators and steps? Any other comments - pro or con about these 2 cabin locations would be greatly appreciated. Or any other pics - but prefer balcony pics - thank you so much - appreciate your time.
  7. I know in all prior years Labor Day was a pretty good sale day to grab some cruise bargains. I wonder if that will be the case this year? I wonder if Celebrity will offer a better sale than they have going now. July 23 sale for Sky Suite price was substantially lower priced than the current sale. I was hoping a better deal would be offered for Labor Day. Just looking for opinions - I know we have no idea which way pricing will go. I was hoping it would be a good sale to attract passengers and revenue for the future. Sadly the current sale is not nearly as good as the one advertised in July. Only time will tell. Had I booked in July - we could have had an adjustment - looking at sailing for Spring 2021.
  8. If we decide to pay more to bump up to a higher level cabin AFTER final payment, is there any type of penalty? Also, will restaurant reservations remain the same, or would you have to redo them? Would it be same reservation number or a new one? I am not talking about the bidding up process, but requesting a specific cabin number costing more than originally booked. Thanks for your help!
  9. Thanks for the video - looks great - we are booked for a back to back in March - hope we are able to sail by then. Thinking of upgrading to this type of suite - just a little above our budget, but have some time to save. Smooth sailing to all.
  10. Can anyone please verify that this Sky Suite has the bed FACING the balcony and has the mirror/window in the bathroom that opens to look out over the room onto balcony. Different sites show different set ups for Sky Suites - some have bed on side and not facing balcony. Just want to be sure to book the correct one. Also, I read all S2 Sky Suites have the bed facing the balcony, yet some sites show the diagram of the bed on the side for S2 (which I think is an error). If anyone has stayed in this exact suite OR any on Deck 10 forward - please provide pics. Thanks for your help - smooth sailing to all of us whenever the opportunity allows us to do so again!
  11. Has anyone used the Celebrity one night hotel pre cruise that includes transportation to the pier? Please advise how it went - I like having it all prepaid and part of Celebrity package. My concern is the time of transportation to pier? Must you sign up when you get to hotel? Is it hard to get the time you wish? Just curious how the transportation to pier really works. Is it a bus and pick up others for other ships? Any information would be greatly appreciated. This would be at the Embassy Suites 17th St. in Ft. Lauderdale. Thanks for your help!
  12. Good point - but both done on same card - thanks
  13. We were disappointed when our Oasis of the Seas cruise was canceled. The very day this happened we applied for a FULL REFUND. Only two weeks later we received our monies back for all our shore excursions, drink packages, internet, etc. We also received our cruise fare, port taxes, and prepaid gratuities. We were $500 short and realized the only monies we did not get back were for our deposit of $500. I was under the understanding that IF Royal canceled the cruise FIRST and then I apply for full refund that the deposit would be returned no matter if we had refundable OR non refundable deposit. Am I correct - should I be getting $500 back for my original deposit? I was so pleased with timing as many are complaining how long refunds were taking - but still expect another $500 back. Am I correct? Thank you for your help!! Much appreciated.
  14. Carnival announced no cruises out of NYC rest of this year - nothing from Royal or Celebrity yet, but I assume that would include Cape Liberty eventually.
  15. There IS an advantage to completing check in even if you think it will eventually be canceled. I completed our check in and we received information via email about our cancellation about 3 weeks before the couple who was traveling with us - they did not complete the check in. So , we got the bad news earlier - so put us more in front of line for refund.
