  • Notification Date: December 13, 2023
  • Accepted - Celebrity Suite

General Comments interestingly, there are still suites left in the lower categories.  Wondering if they take your highest bid.  I really wanted the Aqua sky suite as I would have liked access to the spa rooms and Blu (which is why I booked Aqua originally).  But I am still thrilled with the extra space and a dedicated butler😄.

General Comments (offer details, etc.)

I've never done a move up because I pick my cabin and am generally very happy with my choice, but we've never done Blu, so I thought I'd put in a "weak" bid and if it's accepted then great! I am surprised that they're sending out offers as the cruise was sold out for the longest time. But now that it's past Final Payment, I'm guessing they have rooms to fill.

 

Here are the other categories in the offer:

Edge Villa: $4500+

Royal Suite: $3600+

Celebrity Suite: $2250+

AquaClass Sky Suite: $1100+

Sky Suite: $1000+

AquaClass: $150+

Our offer took into account the very good priced we got when we booked our sunset sky suite way back in 2021! The cost is still cheaper than booking a sunset sky suite now so we are more than happy.

  • If YES - Bidding Details:
  • Cabin Category: AquaClass Sky Suite
  • Bid Offer: $500
  • Notification Date: TBD
  • Accepted / Rejected: TBD
  • General Comments (offer details, etc.) I was surprised that AQ and sunset concierge have relatively high minimums. As recently as last week I saw an AQ cabin available for $300 pp more than our currently booked price. I put in a bid for Aqua Class Sky Suite. If we get it at that price, what a bargain! If not, we are happy with our current room. I may consider putting in a sky suite bid at slightly over minimum but not sure that access to Luminae justifies the cost for us. I don't think we would use the other suite class beneitson the Reflection. 

 

Minimum Bids

Sunset Conceirge: $1300 pp

Aqua Class: $450pp

Sky Suite - 800 pp

Sunset Sky Suite - $1650 pp

AquaClass Sky Suite - $450 pp

Note: I wasn't sure this category was included in with regular Sky Suites. I was hoping to have the bed that looked out at the ocean.

Just heard that my MoveUp bid to a Sky Suite for my next cruise was successful. Booking a similar Sky Suite on the same cruise today would cost about $17,500 CAD more than I paid (although that probably says more about current prices than anything else). Looking forward to trying out the Retreat for the first time.

Greetings fellow Ottawan!  Thanks for sharing - being informed of a successful "MoveUp" six weeks before cruise date is about the earliest I've seen.  It looks like you bid well above the minimum - to go from the pricier Aqua Class to Sky Suite, the minimum is typically about CAD $90/day and you paid CAD $175/day.  What was your minimum?  Regardless, you're right, you got a Sky Suite (and all its benefits) for far less than it would have cost up-front.

Hello neighbour! Yes it was very early. For my other successful.bid, I was notified about 11 days prior to the cruise. I believe that the minimum bid was $1475 or $1495. Figured it was worth a somewhat higher bid given the good deal I had received on the original stateroom fare.
