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.)

 

We decided not to bid because we really liked our current location in S1 on Deck 6 with a larger than usual balcony, but here are our minimum bids for those who are curious...

 

Celebrity Suite: $350pp ($700)

Royal Suite: $500pp ($1000)

Penthouse Suite: $750pp ($1500)

 

I would maybe have gambled up one level if CS was just a little lower.

When we booked the cruise, ALL suites were sold out.  So we figure the chances of getting accepted for any suite level are slim to none.    Will provide more bidding details at the 48 hour mark pre sailing.

General Comments (offer details, etc.)

Move-up offers min-max ranges per person:

Concierge: $100-$400

Family Veranda: $100-$500

Aqua: $200-$600

Sky Suite: $750-$1750

Celebrity Suite: $1000-$2250

Royal Suite: $1500-$4000

 

The only option we're considering is Aqua but in a mock booking there are only two cabins available in this category at this time. One is under the pool and the other appears to be under treadmills in the gym. Neither is appealing so we'll wait if better options become available as our current cabin is in a desirable location on deck 8.

  • Accepted/Rejected: Pending

We offered the minimum bid for a family veranda. We do not expect to get the upgrade, but we love our current Sweet 16 room, so it wasn't worth more than $100pp for the upgrade. I am all about the veranda...so If they want to give me a bigger one for $100pp I will take it.

The offer I received on 2/16 had a cheaper Royal Suit min of $1250 and a more expensive min of $950 for Celebrity Suite. All other offers the same.

General Comments (offer details, etc.)  We booked an Inside Guarantee and were given the lowest category on the Deck 3, so not optimal.  But it was an incredibly good deal, so we figured we deal with it.  The minimum was $160 for a Veranda, and we bid $165.  And they assigned us a 1A, so we're thrilled!

First time ever bidding. Will post the results when I hear back from Celebrity.

They had Aqua Class (range of $60 - $300 pp), Concierge (range of $60-$300 pp), Family Veranda (range of $50-$200 pp), Veranda (range of $50 -$200 pp), and Oceanview (range of $20 - $150)

 

We leave out of Miami on this cruise this Thursday (3/5). Heard this afternoon about our Move Up Bids ( detailed above). We did not get either bid. Totally ok with it as this was a last minute cruise and a heck of a deal with perks and price.

General Comments (offer details, etc.) All offers went from pending to expired except Royal Suite, found out hours later that Royal Suite was accepted.  It was weird to see expired and not just rejected for others, but after reading deep into the boards found others had experienced the same situation.  At time of winning there were 2 RS available, 4 CS available and 1 Signature.  Not sure what made them choose what they did.  All bets were placed in “Fair” yellow zone.
