  1. We've stayed in 7307 and 9374 which have the pole on the right side of the bed (my side). I've looked at multiple photos on S class ships to assure the pole is not on the left side of the bed. I love the layout of the S1 cabin with the side window except for the bed pole placement. There is one less closet door storage and fewer storage drawers. DH doesn't like the aft of the ship so we book the S2 cabin.
  2. We've stayed in S1 aft SS on several sailings and DH prefers the pole to be on the right side of the bed as in 2146. FYI to those who care: the pole is on the left side of the bed on the port side on deck 12. They are opposite on deck 11 and then deck 10 cabins are the same as 12, and so on.
  3. RCI Grand Suite is our favorite suite and you'll love it. It's worth the upgrade!
  4. Totally agree...we had a non-refundable GS on the cancelled 9-2-20 Artic Crossing which we reluctantly moved to the JOS 9-15-20 Iceland & British Isles. With the cancellation of this sailing we are THRILLED to finally get rid of this non-refundable deposit and are getting a refund. We are D+ (more than half way to P) and only book a GS, but we will no longer book a cruise with RCCL unless it's close to final payment or something we desperately want to take like the Artic Crossing. We have similar loyalty status with both Princess and Celebrity who offer refundable suites so they're getting
  5. I appreciate your suggestion and initial post advising that the difference between Sleeper and Prestige was significant. I was very surprised just how significant that was. I would love to travel in Prestige, but that's a little more than I can justify...so Sleeper Plus it is.
  6. You'll be just before us and too late to change our accommodations.
  7. RKA Cruiser: I'll reach out to them; however, I've looked at the website and there doesn't appear to be anything between Sleeper Plus and Prestige. There were some sample prices for routes and Prestige Class was about 4X the price of Sleeper Plus. Even if it were available, I wouldn't pay 4X more for a 19 hour journey.
  8. Will you be sailing before Sept 2021? If so, I'd be interested in your opinion on this cabin. We're also disappointed that there isn't an upgrade with a private shower.
  9. Did you find that it was worth $1,000 since it's only 19 hours? The single cabins look very "tight" and efficient. Celebrity quoted me the same price and DH is fine with booking the 2 cabins.
  10. Thanks for responding and the information.
  11. For those interested, I just spoke with Celebrity Cruisetour Dept and was informed that Prestige class is not available on the Vancouver to Jasper route as it is only available on tickets for 2 nights or more. The only upgrade is to remove the wall between 2 cabins which allows you to have 2 lower beds combined.
  12. Ron, We're booked on the Vancouver to Calgary post cruise tour next year and it was noted "All Canadian Rockies Cruise tours are independent travel itineraries and do not include an escort". How was the touring without an escort? We've taken the Alaska Lodges Land Cruise tour and had an escort which is nice to have a central figure to deal with.
  13. Yes, I have reviewed their website, but I was looking for personal experience. We overnight at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.
