  1. Thank you for your useful input and non-judgemental tone. Have a great summer being miserable.
  2. Throughout most of last summer you could find the 10% discount to upgrade on your cruise planner. It was discussed here for quite a long period and was available for my sailing last July 29th.
  3. It seems as though Celebrity has stopped intermittently running the 10% off discount for upgrading your drink package. I wonder if this is because they've ingrained the classic drink package as one of the perks in the regular promotional rates and now rely on this upgrade revenue more heavily.
  4. If HAL were to implement permanent second entree surcharges and you (or me) decided to dine primarily at the Lido Buffet, would you consider adjusting your automatic tip in favor of directly tipping those servers waiting on your in the buffet? I feel I would. I’m sorry to the dining room staff where my table/seat was assigned but if HAL can engage in exclusionary practices I can choose to assign to whom my money goes.
  5. Hi there, sorry but forgive my ignorance but in Concierge class rooms you are still paying for liquor in the minibar correct? Even with the drink package?
  6. I think they really need to re-think this. They serve 4oz lobster tails and are surprised people wants a second? Get real.
  7. Today I received an email from my HAL personal cruise consultant and I responded letting her know I do not support this trial and I will not be booking another HAL cruise until I learn that it has been discontinued. I’m interested to see if she responds.
  8. Roz you missed the meaning of that post entirely..... read earlier comments in this thread.
  9. Please lets keep on topic not discussing dietary/ green preferences. meanwhile, the idea of smaller entrees and a surcharge for multiples is quite concerning!

  11. Ugh, the sarcasm from most of you on these boards is ridiculous anymore! I’ve read the other post, not all 43 pages because it’s gone off topic and in so many tangents it doesn’t really answer my question. A few sailings prior to February say they’ve experienced this MDR surcharge. There has been no identification if it was on a Specialty dining cruise or normal HAL sailing. I was hoping for something more current and detailed not people’s opinions on obesity or dining room manners/attire but you all rather be arrogant and nasty in your responses.
  12. Has this concept been rolled out Fleetwide? Are they trying to get more people to dine in the buffet? If you have actually experienced this on a normal HAL ship please respond. Culinary specialty cruises it’s understandable but extra charges on normal entrees in MDR is the question at hand????
  13. Except when you can’t get into the hallway because doors are locked
