Celebrity MoveUp Offer Tracker - Please Do Not Post Questions Here!

Recommended Posts

I originally placed the Tracker in the thread initiated by CruisingChick on April 23, 2018.  However, the tracker gets lost amongst all the many questions/comments (understandably).  Thus, I have decided to create a single thread for tracking purposes only (filtering out everything else).  

The purpose of this thread is strictly for compiling information into a spreadsheet.   I will be running this tracker for ~ 6 months to see if any interesting trends come about and/or for general information purposes.  Will reevaluate its usefulness thereafter. 

IF you wish to participate, answer the following questions as best as you can and I will transfer the info to the Tracker. 
Please do not ask questions here (redirect your questions/comments to the CruisingChick thread of April 2018).

General Comments (offer details, etc.)

Bid $700 pp for a CS and 1000 pp for a Royal suite. Bid minimum for both. No reply yet. I doubt the bids will be accepted as there are no cabins showing available above the Sky suite.  The bid prices have fluctuated several times over the last few weeks.  They seem to drop when there are price drops - at least on my sailing.

I have now been sent my 4th Move Up email for the 3 night cruise to Amsterdam. 

I did check on the sailing & it appears all suites are fully booked but still invited to bid which is interesting & maybe bears fruit for the theory that people do cancel at the last minute thus leading to move up bids being accepted!

General Comments (offer details, etc.) The email solicited bids for Celebrity Suite starting at $700 pp, Royal Suite starting at $1500 pp, and Penthouse starting at $2500 pp.  We didn't feel we could justify making an offer based on these "starting at" prices.

 

I am providing data from a Connie cruise we took last fall, since I stumbled on the email today while looking for something else.

  • Notification Date:  5/6/19
  • Accepted / Rejected: Accepted

General Comments (offer details, etc.)

  MoveUp minimum offer was CS $300pp; RS $500pp; PH $900pp.  Maximum bid was $1500pp for the RS & $1500pp for the PH. Don't recall what the max was for the CS.  Bid on the RS and on the PH and bid the max on each since we booked the original cabin on a gty for only $2279pp.  Figured this would be our only shot at a royal suite because the regular prices were out of our reach. The going price for the RS was over $6100pp.

We are in a Sky Suite (S1) and received offers to move up to a Celebrity Suite (minimum bid CAD$ 945 pp), a Royal Suite (minimum bid CAD$2020 pp) and a Penthouse Suite (minimum bid CAD$3,365 pp).  We could not justify the extra cost on such a port intensive cruise (8 ports in 10 days).

We would not have been at a starting bid on any of them and thought the current bids were already outlandish.
