  1. @DaKahuna is correct, with one qualification... the price difference plus a 20% gratuity on that difference
  2. We generally give $2 per normal breakfast delivery from room service. It is a luxury that we appreciate and the delivery person (who is generally not our room steward) is always helpful and happy. It is a small token. If we have dinner it is $5 tip, but that only happens if we are hung-over... I mean... not feeling well. Not that we are wealthy in anyone's mind, but we know that if we are lucky enough to cruise, bringing an extra $10-20 for room service tips isn't going to break the bank and it means a lot to the staff (and their families). You do not NEED to tip for a delivery, but we find it appropriate.
  3. Thanks all! I’ll be (somewhat) patient.
  4. There are menus appearing in the Celebrity app for a cruise in March. Should I believe these and book specialty restaurants on the nights I don’t like the menu, or is likely to change closer to sailing? Thanks!
  5. You can see how much OBC you have from the cruise line (not a TA) by going to your cruise(s) and clicking on Plan my Cruise. You may get a pop-up with how much OBC you have, or it is at the top of the screen (just to the left of cart). This is on a PC -- it might be different on a phone / iPad.
  6. That is true..and the $9 includes the gratuity ($7.50 + 20% gratuity = $9)
  7. I noticed all the items on the Cocktail list are above $15. That means they all have up-charges, even if you have the premium package, correct? If so, pretty poor job by Celebrity. Wait, soon they'll have a super-premium package that allows up to $18/drink. 😡
  8. Recently had the D&M on a 5-nighter. A no brainer as the $50/ea was greater than the $45/ea upgrade cost from premium. Having the items in the mini bar was convenient (very limited choice - titos, some splits of wine, coke, pringles, and kind bars). The wine tasting was poor at best. We couldn't GIVE away the 2 bottles of wine from the room (we didn't even want the other two). As a note, we are going on a week long cruise in a few months and we are NOT purchasing it. We just didn't find the value...
  9. And you really should go on many VACATIONS 🙂
  10. This is from https://www.celebritycruises.com/company/customer-support/help-and-faqs/pre-cruise/all-pre-cruise-faqs Emphasis is mine. “Celebrity’s minimum age to sail unaccompanied on sailings originating in North America is twenty-one (21). The minimum age to sail unaccompanied on sailings from South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand is eighteen (18). Celebrity Cruises retains the right, on rare occasions, to raise the minimum age to sail unaccompanied on any sailing when local laws require or permit such a modification. For voyages originating in North America, no guest younger than the age twenty-one (21) will be assigned to a stateroom unless accompanied in the same stateroom by an adult twenty-one (21) years old or older. A guest's age is established upon the first date of sailing. This age limit will be waived for children sailing with their parents or guardians in connecting staterooms; for underage married couples; and for active duty members of the United States or Canadian military. Certain other restrictions and conditions will apply; such as compliance with the age twenty-one (21) alcohol policy, and proof of marriage for underage couples or proof of active duty military status required.”
  11. If you are accessing the internet right near each other, you can use a travel router (and a single account). I think @POA1 had a good write-up a bit ago.
  12. If you have the premium, I'd suggest trying Stoli Elit (for vodka), Hendricks (for gin), zacapa 23 (for rum), Macallan - either Quest or the 10 year, depending on what they have (for scotch), and a bottle of mouthwash (for tequila). I really don't like tequila. Enjoy!
  13. The large martinis are definitely INCLUDED in the premium package. As are the drinks at World Class Bar.
  14. The premium limit of $15 covers almost all mixed drinks. Using good liquors (eg Stoli Elit, Macallan, Hendricks, etc). And some wines. But they do have many wines by the glass that are above that amount (Things like Grgich Hills, Caymus).
  15. We were just on the Infinity with the premium package. We had smoothies / juices at the Spa Cafe at no additional charge. Enjoy!
