Did you get a balcony discount?

Yes. C&A D discount of $113 each.   Seems odd with no balcony.

10/11 would be Saturday and Wednesday. that would work

 

We rarely drove to Ft Lauderdale when we lived in Atlanta

John,  Celebrity Connie is going to be sailing from Tampa -10- nights beginning in Nov. or Dec. 2020.  Not a bad drive from Cocoa Beach to Tampa.  The Connie is one of my favorite ships thus I booked for April 2021.

Out of curiosity, what selections do you need to make to book any of the spa rooms? I just booked on Adventure TA in April 2021 and wanted to see what these rooms go for (both the suite and the oceanview) and I can't seem to locate pricing on any of the rooms on that deck.

Don't want to Hijack this thread but...Hi Scott, your old Trivia partner from VOS TA. We are sailing AOS Repo NJ-Gal 11/05/20.

Maybe you will too!

Looks to me, as if there is a handrail with steps going down into the Solarium pool? Would be handy for me, ladders are a challenge for me these days.

 

Eagerly following your thread.

Yes, there is. You can actually see it in use here in my pic, which was taken from a different angle. Hope it helps. :classic_smile:

When I booked 1854 on Liberty last month, refundable deposit was still available. I thought it used to be treated the same as a JS with no other suite benefits. I found it odd that a full suite could be booked refundable and sent a query to Nadja the SL concierge and she assured me that the panoramic suite has full suite benefits.

Thank you so much for sharing!  Enjoying all the photos.

Just realized we'll be in this cabin in a few months.

 

Without Coastal Kitchen, what were some of your suite perks?

Suite perks for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

Did you order room service for dinner?...did it arrive hot?

Are there any other suite perks on the Adventure that we can easily overlook?...please share.

Thanks again!

 

I'll go over the suite benefits on Adventure in a minute. Pretty sure they are similar to Liberty.

We did get an email from the Concierge about a week before sailing

Just got back from birtday dinner with Bella's co patents.  I guess this is my opportunity for the obligatory Bella pictures that always creep into my threads. 

 

No chocolate was shared for this picture.

There may have been some frosting

She knows we're leaving

That's it, no more Bella

Well, until next time we go.....

Bathroom pics, we had two. 😁

Well one and a half if you want to get technical😉

 

Master, only one sink, but decent storage

20191201_130600.thumb.jpg.aca75f0ad9cad616d5d725c804e925de.jpg

 

Gilchrist & Soames toiletries is a suite perk

20191212_145810.thumb.jpg.6c8d6ccdd4a2d067eb01e9d7be894d9e.jpg

 

After we 'moved in'

IMG_5268.thumb.JPG.f3291001dfd4a94fbc72d0520979ede0.JPG

 

Std 'phone booth' shower.

Do millennials even know what a phone booth is?

20191201_130609.thumb.jpg.728088e8d911032c44d314b8de70f7f7.jpg

 

My bath, they are actually across the hall from each other

FWIW, the sink in this bath is a good 2 inches lower than the the other one.

Good for kids I guess

20191201_130620.thumb.jpg.2d5dd2f713114c47ca5c0558edd6ea4c.jpg

 

Oh, and this is the tub from our pre cruise hotel in Ft Lauderdale

Rodeway Inn. Big surprise, but didn't use it

We only stayed there for the parking perks

Random living room pictures

 

Swivel TV

20191201_130740.thumb.jpg.a80dcf1ad8aaa370a2a3b9f599c2873f.jpg

 

I was amazed that it would spin forever

20191201_131238.thumb.jpg.34708a8e06a831ec0b663fd733ec2b9c.jpg

 

3 shairs, 2 tables

4 if you count the desk chair

20191202_093133.thumb.jpg.6838c45d82f04d5739c5b2de94163a6e.jpg

 

Only 2 drape panels other than the shears

There is actually a third by the bed, but it's only 3' wide

They only move one way. from the center to the edge.

If you want to open the living room with out flooding the bedroom side with light, you need to unhook the end in the corner

Fairly easy

20191201_203456.thumb.jpg.35532d540d4e6bdfc97c44eddd6f0442.jpg

 

Fairly significant angle on the glass

20191202_122216.thumb.jpg.e7a1c1c8d7e87baa4cd60c0939100f49.jpg

 

Sofa bed is a trundle

You can make it as a double

IMG_5292.thumb.JPG.8862767f9daa5575908d61818b954f26.JPG

 

And you can also make twins, depending on your needs

The only downside I see to this suite is the phone booth shower instead a tub. One of the reasons we almost always book at least a JS.

What a way to wake up or take a nap

20191202_151530.thumb.jpg.7e8055c12f8cda49311efbe1e8c48158.jpg

 

That 3' panel I mentioned earlier

There is a pole where the curtain ends

You rarely notice it

The showers on Harmony and Symphony are really nice.

The space and the view trump the bath deficiencies in my opinion

How about some paperwork

This is confusing, RSC is only on Oasis and Quantum ships.

It's a nice folder, though

20191201_210842.thumb.jpg.cc3da692f82538246b8276bfdaeb7f03.jpg

 

Concierge business card is inside the folder. He was very good

20191202_133443.thumb.jpg.4eb5d7524f0b4779e9b6c224ebc11a76.jpg

 

Welcome from GS manager

20191201_210755.thumb.jpg.d63e223b82ef68a91e99de2e6045f4b6.jpg

 

I thought we would do room service, but never did

20191202_025906.thumb.jpg.116f76e07fb5ad18dce529588d66c03e.jpg

 

More free room service, we did Giovanni's every morning

20191202_025942.thumb.jpg.b746b69f012850a3f4693b266c3b4f48.jpg

 

I think all cabins get this note

20191202_030657.thumb.jpg.0182a85e59490e32d65412fff8b9b043.jpg

 

Similar to the email we received pre cruise

20191202_030715.thumb.jpg.7b1cdb02567522265e50ab8d3ada12a8.jpg

 

Not all that exclusive, Pinnacles are invited as well

20191202_133458.thumb.jpg.ce4453e9af12a2379299f23f2c46eb2a.jpg

 

Glass bottle of Evian and a fruit bowl are std in a full suite

20191202_030855.thumb.jpg.fea8360db39c8a656b656af0bfd5b7d5.jpg

 

I did take advantage of the free pressing

Yes, we’ve been on Symphony and they are an improvement. 
I agree that the shower is a minuscule factor as far as the pluses in this suite.

Electronic stuff

 

Since these cabins were added recently, they have this energy saving light feature

If you remove this card (any will do) the lights go off

20191202_133721.thumb.jpg.8459ee54104814df7cbd71aef7100706.jpg

 

We also had a newer type t-stat

20191202_133705.thumb.jpg.378014d9084a026ae55224a5a50fd207.jpg

 

And a real refrigerator

Kept the LaLa juice very cold

20191202_133606.thumb.jpg.72ab71e61c63d4d9535da80ae26ebe2b.jpg

 

You can tell it's a fridge and not a thermo electric chiller by the label inside the cabinet

Look to see if it says refrigerant

20191202_133536.thumb.jpg.0802b5143b6e8b0cfd96ad2434a0c808.jpg

 

Other than that, we had two American outlets and one European outlet at the desk

I didn't see any other outlets except the shaver one in the full bath

 

FWIW, the layout of the room allows you to keep the outer door to the fridge open

This helps the cooling process.

THANK YOU! Very reassuring to know there should be safe access for me. My days of climbing a ladder safely are long gone now!

Bunk Room

20191202_133744.thumb.jpg.a4b3e27c7d21338e72e4500a2fce480c.jpg

 

Sometimes these have doors, and sometimes it's just curtains

Also a good place to store luggage

IMG_5266.thumb.JPG.318151c49ce3b9ed0c46fb1c0d9e4180.JPG

 

Plenty of room, I'm 6-1

20191202_212643.thumb.jpg.813e526ecb219df10ae72c6d7a3ece81.jpg

 

Laura even took a nap in there one afternoon

20191205_123136.thumb.jpg.743dd4e04c4cecdd8fa554c1fbbde878.jpg

 

The mattress was just OK, definitely not as nice as the regular bed

But not overly hard

Thanks for this topic.  We have one of these rooms on liberty in May.  Will be me, the wife, 4 year old son, and 1 year old daughter.  Should be enough room.
