  1. You're correct. It was originally SALL and they changed it to PALL.
  2. I had confirmation of the Premium package and the internet package which I purchased direct from Celebrity. Only when I got my seapass and tried to use it did they tell me PALL was Classic. All is well now. Ive had three drinks and I'm totally relaxed. I am not one to let small stuff ruin my trip, its just aggravating when they can't get simple stuff right on the first day.
  3. "A Crochet group, 131 people.so are in those shirts. "That is nothing but a simple sticker..." No it requires a new room card. Once I finally got on board I went to a bar and my room card was set for a basic package instead of the premium I paid for. I had to go to guest relations and wait in line to get it corrected. A little later I tried to sign on to the internet with the package I paid for and it wasn't shown. Back down to guest relations, wait in line, get it corrected. Even though I showed the confirmation email I had to pay again and they said they would issue me a credit. Things can only improve at this point. Believe it or not, I'm not normally a complainer. Hopefully I'm done complaining now.
  4. there was no problem for the delay for any reason other than they have priority boarding based on your class. Now we are waiting in line to have them put the correct liquor package which we purchased two months ago on our sea pass so we are able to get what we paid for. Aggravated.
  5. This our second celebrity cruise. Last time we arrived at our scheduled time, checked in and boarded. This time we were scheduled for 11 am check in, arrived at 11:30 and are still waiting to board an hour later. If they are boarding by class and muster station now, why schedule us for early check in? We would have spent time enjoying Miami instead of sitting in a waiting area for more than an hour. Not a good way to start a Cruise.
  6. I'm thinking of taking a tour at the Sandiego Safari park that begins at 1pm. My Celebrity ship is scheduled to arrive at 7am. I will pick up a car at the airport rental facility. Does anyone think this might be to much of a rush to get there on time for the tour?
  7. I received an email from Celebrity saying they were offering up to 25% off on shore excursions (among other discounts) on my cruise. Error 1: When I click on the link it takes me to the Celebrity page and shows my cruise and excursions with no discounts. Error 2: When I go to Celebrities main page and I am signed in it shows me my two upcoming cruises, one which is in 4 weeks. When I click on "Plan my cruise" it takes me to a page asking me what cruise, reservation number etc... even though it was showing the cruise on my main page and I clicked from there. Error 3: I was "chatting" online with a celebrity rep (the opportunity showed up on the screen" and I told her my shore excursions were not showing any discount, she asked my reservation number. When I gave it to her she said, yes there were discounted excursions. When I went back to the excursion page, the chat window disapeared but kept "dinging" in the background meaning she was responding but my chat window was gone. It is really hard to understand why a corporation that relies on its marketing can't find tech people who can fix their IT problems. This hasn't changed for years. They are really frustrating. Of course I can call, wait on hold, that have the rep go through my 15 day trip and read me a list of all the discounts. Yeah, not going to happen. I'll just book discounted shore excursions by finding ones on Trip adviser that are not through the ship.
  8. We went on the Islander in March/April. It was amazing from start to finish. I highly recommend this Islander due to it's perfect size. I considered the small Yacht type ships, the Islander and the 100 passenger vessels. We found the Islander to be a perfect size. In my opinion the 48 passenger size was perfect for interaction with other passengers, ease of embarking and debarking for the different excursions. We thought the ship was beautiful. The options for excursions were perfect. Any questions, feel free to ask.
  9. Thanks I read that, but that still does not address specifically uploading pictures. Does anyone have experience with the new cheaper package and how it works for this?
  10. I am not clear on the new cheaper internet choice. It says you can't stream video on the lower price internet which is fine for me. What it doesn't say is whether your ability to upload pictures to Facebook, Instagram etc, or have your auto backup to the cloud affected? Does anyone know if you can still do this on the cheaper package?
  11. I just made a reservation for 2020 on the Silly. I really enjoyed my TA o the Reflection so I assume I would also enjoy the Silly. When choosing a European cruise in fall 20202 I left out all of the Edge and Apex cruises from my list. If they get rid of the Ensemble, Sky Lounge and Wine Cellar when they "Revolutionize" the ship, I will cancel. I am beginning to think Holland America could up their game and begin filling the void Celebrity may create if they begin eschewing 50+ cruisers.
  12. Thanks for the follow up and verification that my TA had correct information. Again, she wasn't saying go or no go, just consider this information. We were on Reflection for 2 weeks in October. We quickly learned even on that ship we had to arrive at ensemble or the Martini bar early to get a seat. Sometimes we would get drinks at the bar at the Martini Bar and carry them over to either the Wine Cellar on the other side or sit around the Vodka on Ice table. At least there were acceptable options nearby that didn't involve going outside. I can't imagine having even less options and getting to may more for that privilege.
