  1. I don’t know why I am just now seeing this but to answer your question, I would never trust the ships laundry, especially with something vintage. Either have it cleaned before your cruise or take it home as a souvenir.
  2. Yes, it is appreciated. I did a search before asking my questions, I am sorry if I am duplicating. Hopefully, I will one day be the one answering questions on Celebrity.
  3. Thank you everyone! I am looking forward to trying Celebrity. I did call and they gave me our new Captain's Club numbers. We had a less than good experience on our last RCCL cruise we booked, we ended up cancelling it before we even went. I am looking forward to having the benefits we have earned and was not looking forward to RCCL again after that experience.
  4. Hello everyone! My name is Pam and my husband is Dave, I am sorry if my questions have already been answered on this forum but I looked back a few pages and couldn't find them posted already. We are Diamond on Royal Caribbean and I hear my perks will transfer to Celebrity. Can someone explain to me what to expect. Will we have access to a lounge? Will we have drinks loaded on our card? What can I expect on Celebrity that is different than Royal Caribbean? Do people dress for dinner more than on Royal Caribbean? My husband like to bring his tux, will he feel out of place? Thanks in advance! BTW, we just needed a nice relaxing beach cruise with lots of time to watch the ocean from our balcony. We booked the Equinox out of Fort Lauderdale, November 16, 2019.
  5. "Cool", I never knew that was why they were not as cold.
  6. Absolutely! I am not flying to Hawaii to shop in a mall.
  7. Exactly the point of my thread, I want to inform people to pay more attention, don’t trust your TA, do your own research. I have been saying all along that this was my mistake. In the future I will be booking my own cruise through the cruise line after doing my own research.
  8. Sorry, I deleted the email. Maybe someone else can answer your question.
  9. OMG! I am LMAO, I just check my emails and after spending $1,000 to upgrade our cabin to the only unobstructed balcony cabin left on the ship they are now sending me the "Royal Up" offer to submit a bid. Let me tell you...that is not going to happen. Sorry...I just had to share it with you all.
  10. I guess this proves everyone is looking for something different, I would have been happy with that view.
  11. Again, I want to remind people the intent of this thread was to warn people before they decide to book a guarantee balcony cabin. The warning is simple, do your research and see if the ship you are looking at has obstructed balcony cabins and decide for yourself if it is worth the risk. I admit I did not research the ship properly or I would never have booked a guarantee balcony on this ship because virtually all of the cabins on the 6th floor and some on the 7th have some kind of obstruction, that is a lot of obstructed balconies. Buyer beware. Thank you everyone for allowing a good discussion on this thread. My husband and I are what you would call "seasoned" cruisers, we are Diamond and I was still taken by surprise. We will still enjoy our cruise and look forward to the nice long sea days in our new "upgraded" balcony cabin.
