  1. I'll be going on Liberty of the Seas next year. I am still too far out to see much on the cruise planner. I wondered if "The Key" is still being offered?
  2. Well, this was a bad news/good news kind of day. First, I received an E-Mail telling my March 21, 2021 cruise on the Liberty had been canceled due to a longer than expected refurbishment. I had picked that cruise because it was fairly inexpensive two years out and it was out of Galveston (near my home in Spring, TX). The good news was that RCL was going to honor my original price for a similar cruise and throw in a $400 OBC because it was a junior suite. So, I got a better date for the same price and an additional $400 OBC. Good day with Royal Caribbean!
  3. One point that is missing is how the cruise lines have changed their MDR formal evenings. I have been cruising for about fifteen years. In that time, I have seen the cruise lines really reduce their effort during formal nights. Now, other than photographers taking over-priced pictures, what distinguishes MDR formal nights from any other night? The waiters don't dress any different. There is no special live music (different than any other night), no special food or desserts, no special decorations, etc. Maybe if the cruise lines made it special, more people would be willing to dress up.
  4. Where do you find out details about the Private Journeys?
  5. I like playing slots but not in these smoke filled casinos. Our next cruise is on the Celebrity Silhouette. It is my understanding that their casino is smoke free. I hope so!
  6. I just found a FaceBook page devoted to the Celebrity Silhouette which appears to be fairly active. That may be a source of information for me.
  7. I have cruised with RCL for a long time. Due to a family cruise, we are going to take our first Celebrity (Silhouette) cruise next year. I have also been looking for an information forum on Celebrity but it's pretty scarce. They have a FaceBook page that is mostly advertising and there is a Cruise Critic forum but that's about it. I have also watched You Tube videos. For being a pretty large cruise line and sister to RCL, there is an amazing lack of information on Celebrity.
  8. We were on the Symphony of the Seas in May this year. We ate at most of the specialty restaurants but the big surprise winner was 150 Central Park. The food was incredible! The meats were fantastic, moist, medium rare and very tasty. Who would have thought that even the vegetables could be something special? 150 Central Park wasn't just the best restaurant on the ship, it was one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at!
  9. My wife and go to Nachi Cocum whenever we go to Cozumel. It has activities but is more quiet than other beaches. It includes food and drinks which are all good. Nice thing is that you're pretty close to the water. There is also a large pool with a swim-up bar. Overall, it's a beautiful, relaxing day.
  10. This may not be a fair question here but, are there any Celebrity blogs similar to this Royal Caribbean Blog? I know there is a Celebrity section on this blog but it is seldom used. Thanks!
  11. I hate to say this, but Galveston had some serious flooding the last few days and a local bridge was knocked out of service. I would call to see if you can get to Galveston. At a minimum, I would give yourself a few extra hours to get there.
  12. We always went by the napkin. If it was left on the chair, then the diner wasn't finished. If it was put on the plate, then the diner was finished.
  13. I normally sale on RCL but we have a family cruise coming up on Celebrity. I'm trying to remember if I recently read somewhere that Celebrity was doing away with Formal Nights and going to casual. Can anyone verify that? We will be on the Celebrity Silhouette. Thanks!
  14. We are platinum cruisers with RCL but we are now being asked to go on a family cruise on Celebrity. Does the RCL C&A benefit transfer over to Celebrity? Any tips on cruising with Celebrity? Thanks!
  15. I wonder if (when?) this will impact "The Key" prices?
