  1. Am on the Reflection. Donโ€™t know why you are concerned about us. Nothing you can or could do if there were any issues or problems. If you had relatives on board they would have contacted you and even then you couldnโ€™t help. Mass hysteria and crisis is the root of the problem caused by all the politics and news media Life is great Written after having many drinks enjoying the last day on board ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿง‰๐Ÿท Happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
  2. Basically everyone could upgrade to a Royal Suite. I think most donโ€™t donโ€™t because they donโ€™t see value of spending the extra money even if they have it to spend. Some would rather take more cruises then blowing it all on one. It all depends on what you value and how you want to use your money. Happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
  3. the couple wearing beads. We are always told to wear beads at the sail away so we can be recognized . ๐Ÿค— Happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
  4. Nothing to get excited about. Most times we skip it. As other mentioned the free ice cream is just as good and they have more flavors. Actually we very seldom get ice cream either. happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
  5. It could also act as a check off for you to see that it is still valid and didnโ€™t expire. We had to renew ours last year. A host in Michaelโ€™s also told and showed us all the info that they have on the passengers that is used before the cruise. They actually prescreen all the passengers checking to make sure there are no warrants for arrest and etc. along with making sure that they arenโ€™t on their blacklist. We were showed that because we walked in and no one asked to see if we were suite guests. The host told us that the crew is given access to the photos, names, CC level, and etc of all the passengers for the upcoming cruise to get familiar with them and see if they know anyone from a previous cruise. It helps with the PR and makes the passengers feel like homecoming when a employee recognizes them. It doesnโ€™t mean they all do that but the hosts in Michaelโ€™s, Luminae, and Blu usually do. If they donโ€™t remember seeing our photos they will ask. A BT in Michaelโ€™s told us the same as we walked in, sat at the bar and ordered a drink. She was the only one there and no one asked to see our card and we werenโ€™t served by her before. I know 3 years sneak up very fast on my driver license renewal. I needed to use info off of it to file my tax return for security and seen that it has to be renewed this year. Happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
  6. Wife and I will gain 5 to 8 lbs or more and we donโ€™t overeat or have deserts and etc. We do t drink those fancy coffee drinks, have the ice cream, pizza and etc. We even stopped having the juices and pass on the sweet rolls at breakfast. We always use the stairs but in reality that doesnโ€™t burn many calories. We walk a lot but 10,000 steps a day started as a promotion in Japan to sell pedometers. There is no medical evidence that 10,000 steps is the magic number. The only thing is if you are walking for exercise you arenโ€™t eating or drinking anything other than water. Any activity is better than sitting around but for most of us one hour of intense exercise will be wiped out by a drink or two depending on the drink. Beer does it for me. Bloats me up and makes me gain weight. Alcohol also slows down your metabolism. weight gain depends on a lot of factors. A heavy person may not gain as much as they can eat more to support their body weight. dancing is just as good as walking or any other activity and sometimes burns more calories depending on the movements. secret is to be eat like being at home donโ€™t eat like every meal as if is your last. There will be more tomorrow. Calories over calories burned means a gain in weight A burger, fries and beer at the Mast grill is over 1/2 the daily calorie limit for a person with a BMI within the recommended range.

  7. We have a few upcoming cruises I get emails everyday for X to purchase a lot of things that I already have along with the move up notices Today I received a email fro X Re: Your upcoming trip, XXXXX, ! We noticed you still have plans to confirm. Other than purchasing a drink pack, speciality restuarants this is a new one : Thrilling Art Auctions don't miss a second of the auctions register now https://www.parkwestgallery.com/auctions-pre-registration-celebrity-cruises/?allowMobile=y&ecid=em_22886769&rid=1574415294&mes=Celebrity Bon Voyage EM&emsc=AZAUSA_TA_EXCLUDEBKEM0119_USA_PR&empf=Y&emct=E&lnkid=BV_AUCTION I am sure many will be sucked into it thinking it is a special deal and that you need to register to attend as it will certainly be SRO ๐Ÿค— Happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
  8. Metal ball point pens the nice tote bags for CC and above instead of those now given the Individual wrap chocolate squares that were in the wooden box at Cafe al Bacio Daily bottle of water in AQ Blanton, Bakers, Booker, Basil Hayden, Knob Creek footstools on the balcony in CC, AQ and etc Daily news sheets The restaurant 5 on 5 or whatever it was called that is now the sushi bar. It was a nice place for embarkation lunch or a decent sit down lunch for $5 Cheese and wine on the lawn concerts and sail aways. Star gazing seminars hosted by the officers on the top deck.

  9. With the extra passengers in AQ and suites what are they going to do with all the extra space in the MDR ? Happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
  10. Another change that I think is happening is they are changing family verandas to Sunset Suites that is a category between Celebrity Suite and Royal Suite. Eliminating verandas and adding more to the suites. Happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
  11. We will be cruising shortly on 3 cruises that are in Feb and Mar. All are sold out except for the lower categories. I have been receiving emails almost everyday to move up with the same starting minimum bids do so. No intention of moving up and donโ€™t see the advantage for the extra cost if we did get one. We have the cabin, location and price that we like and are comfortable with. Moving up to a unknown cabin location for an extra cost of at least $100/day isnโ€™t worth it for us as it wasnโ€™t worth the extra when we booked that would have been for less and received the perks.

  12. You cruising life and experience will never be the same after becoming Elite. Happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
  13. We have done 4 and 5 day cruises that were either B2B or side by side to a longer cruise if they were too cheap to pass up. Happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
  14. Do they have a happy hour on a 2 night cruise? There isnโ€™t one on the day of embarkation and the next night might not have it because of some ship board party/reception. Happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
  15. It sure will because if I get it the cruise lines wonโ€™t let me board. Happy cruising ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐ŸŒ…
