  1. Here is the link to the overview of the bid program on the celebrity website. I was able to bid about 45 days out from my Summit Cruise and got upgraded from ocean view deck 2 to a concierge on deck 10. If you scroll thru the posts on this forum you should see additional info from others. https://www.celebritycruises.com/ca/bid-on-cruise-room-upgrade
  2. Have you considered doing a Move Up bid for balcony instead since the Move Up only charges for two people in your party?
  3. I was able to place a bid around the 45 day mark by : logging into Celebrity Website Select “manage reservation” Select “manage your vacation” scroll down Past “flights be celebrity” & “cruise planner” Should be a section that says “upgrade your stateroom” (it doesn’t always show up but would if I selected “before you board” and then went back to “manage your vacation” it would appear) :keep the email they send u confirming the bid as it is the primary link if you want to adjust or cancel your bid
  4. Ship: Celebrity Summit Length of Cruise: 7N Cruise Sail Date: 11/16/19 Date email offer received: no email-used link in "manage your reservation" on Celebrity Website Captain’s Club Tier [“PREVIEW” = first Celebrity Cruise]: Preview Booked through Celebrity Direct OR via TA: TA-Crucon Current Cabin:2037 Oceanview Cat 7 Bid? Yes/No: Yes If YES - Bidding Details: Cabin Category: Balcony Bid Offer: bid $170 on balcony, $205 on Concierge, $225 on Family Balc Notification Date:10/31/19 Accepted - Concierge C2 General Comments minimum bids-$80 balc, $150 Concierge, $150 Family Balc, $250 Aqua- Regularly tracked available inventory and comments in this tracker and adjusted bidding a few times over a 4 week period. My expectations were low as we got such a great deal on the cruise with travel agent-Beyond thrilled with upgraded cabin location midship on deck 8,starboard side. Saved $150 US each compared to what we would of paid originally when we booked
  5. If they offer club class on your flights it is worth the splurge!
  6. Air Transit is a Canadian based airline with a separate division that sells fly and cruise packages . ( They don’t sell cruises only). When I booked the package with them for Caribbean cruise the additional luggage was factored in and listed on my edocs. Did your travel agent book cruise directly with Celebrity or Air Transat Vacations?
  7. I have enjoyed roll calls/meet and mingles in the past for the info and organized private tours and a couple of activities on board like a sail away party or slot poll. Different story on my Nov 2018 cruise as there were 2 overly aggressive roll call members who had to do things their way and their opinions were the only ones that mattered . Totally wrecked the nice MSC Divina Meet and Mingle party the staff hosted. I notice ( at least for my Nov roll call) people are signing up for meet and mingle but not participating in the roll call forum. Could be because there is an eager beaver trying to organize literally 3 group activities each day.
  8. Hey Mike- for $11 more you may want to consider Bernard’s Tours. Lots of highlights as well as venturing thru the French side and a stop at Maho Beach to watch the planes fly over. Worth the drive to the French side and Simpson Bay to see the remnants of the hurricane destruction. https://www.bernardstours.com/
  9. Mlbdude- thanks for the update. If the $8 limit still holds I will be calling MSC and cancelling my Classic upgrade for my Nov 29 Divina cruise.Not going to pay $360 ( for 2) for an upgrade of nothing. I was also planning on booking another MSC cruise for 2019 but this half ass beverage package switching incompetent handling means I will sailing with another cruise line
  10. Take a look at post #27 & #29 in this string from "Cruiseguyinorl". Bret is a pretty reliable source. Heis a travel agent and seems to have decent contacts at MSC
  11. Bret, thanks for the update. I am still confused on the “ booked any other drink package will still get that drink package.” I purchased the classic package for my Divina cruise in a couple weeks that had max price points . Ie cocktails under x dollars. The drink prices have now risen above the “x” $. Does that mean my selection is more limited or are they going to ignore the new prices?
  12. Whatever the call center says, I would recommend asking them to send an email to confirm and take the email with you onboard. My experience is the call center agents are not always aligned with Guest Services on policies and Guest Services hands are tied without head office intervening.
  13. MSC website says drink packages can be added or removed (refunded) up to 4 days prior to sailing. If the Classic package is no longer being honoured or the choices have been reduced I will cancel it.
  14. I think the drink package is listed your cabin card so no biggie for bartenders to determine what qualifies. I will find out for sure when I board Divina in a couple weeks.
  15. Easy Package should be renamed the "Measly Package". One kind of draught or bottled beer whoop-de-do. No room mini-bar on premium package either
