General Comments 

 

First off I got a lot of info from this so thanks for everyone's help and it's only right that I now try to help others in the decision.

 

We were offered the following options

Outside - Bid range £80 - £390                                   DID NOT BID

Veranda - Bid range £195 - £585                                BID £200

Family Veranda - Bid range £195 - £585                   BID £400

Aqua - Bid range £395 - £935                                     BID £395

 

All were £5 above minimum except family veranda which was in the middle of the available range

Noted on "Move Up" that on 31st December all showed "expired" except Aqua offer. Then received email on 2nd January confirming upgrade and new room number

 

Very pleased as cabins still selling at a much higher price

 

Hope this helps

 

Stuart

Ship:  Reflection

length of cruise: 10 days

sail date:  21 Feb 20 (MardiGras cruise)

offer received:  14 Dec 19

Captains Club level: Elite

Booked thru TA

Bid:  no. 

 

Penthouse: 750 pp minimum bid

Reflection: 900pp minimum bid

 

Comments:  We originally reserved a Celebrity Suite and watched the price come down almost $4000. I did not want to move up to Signature Suite but was interested in the Royal suite. The RS dropped dramatically this past week  and i had my TA contact Celebrity and we ended up paying less than 900 for both of us to upgrade! 

  I was just again  offered the same upgrade  today as  noted above on my previously reserved discounted Royal Suite.  Fantastic deal without using Celebrity Move-Up.  I will not be bidding.  Extremely happy with my Royal Suite and amenities offered.

 

I should add to clarify from the above quote, that we were able to decrease our spend on our CS by almost 4000 and reserved as such.  When a Royal Suite became available after final payment our TA was able to reach out to Celebrity to upgrade to a RS for just under 900.  I think we made out OK and really cannot justify a Move Up spend.

That is exactly what I did.  I asked what the price difference would be and was willing to pay the amount they said.
