summit - book spa pre-cruise - no OBC

Recommended Posts

I tried to book spa before our Christmas cruise and it is cash only, you cannot use OBC.

 

what is your experience with availability booking spa once onboard?

 

We have high OBC and we should use it on the things we like and not pay cash pre-cruise and later waste our OBC on stuff we do not need...

I have never had a problem getting  okay times when waiting to book spa treatments on board...but i generally take care of all that on embarkation day. Further along in cruises I have overheard folks at the spa desk having to compromise more than they'd hoped in order to get a booking.

To some degree I guess it depends on how picky you are with timing.  For the spa I don't care that much as long as my general time/day preferences work out, but am very choosy when it comes to dining so will pay a premium to book specialty dinners one by one prior to departure in order to know that I won't have to compromise on those. (I realize that the dining bookings do qualify for OBC but the way i book i tend to only have a few hundred anyway so it's not a factor in my SD reservation making.)

 

Happy planning...and even happier traveling!!

I think there is a misunderstanding somewhere.  Cash is not used on your cruise, either before your cruise or during it,

thanks cmhdoogalsatsea for insight. we want the spa booked on the two sea days. hopefully, it will work out.

 

we did not have specialty dinners after we had our kids. we like to be flexible on time and dining arrangements ... not sure how specialty dinner would work with kids if you have any advice?

I always pre book with my credit card.  The discounted port pricing slots  do book up.   I have never  try to use OBC for  the spa but  it works ok for excursions and specialty dining

sorry cruisestich , I meant card. It looks weird that celebrity redirects you out of their website to canyon ranch website to book spa... I don't mind using the card, just that I would like to use OBC for what I need and not be force later to go to casino or shops...

Most  specialty restaurants now allow children..not sure of ages.  They might enjoy Q sine.  I think Summit has regular Q sine  and not yet Le Petit Chef animation????
