  1. I love Celebrity but their ships are nothing like the Oasis class.. Celebrity's ships are beautiful and elegant but they do not have the entertainment offerings like an Oasis class.. I recently realized I prefer celebrity over Royal.. Their food, service, ambience, no smoking in casinos all much better on Celebrity but you cant go into it comparing it to Oasis class.. I am going on Equinox on the 26th in their Aqua class and I am excited But I really really enjoy their new Edge class ships. I know you got a great deal but if I were you I would of started with their best new ship Beyond so you could make a proper comparison..
  2. I saw the same video that you did... I just went on princess website and this is what it said for their updated policy.. We manage an exemption process for a small number of guests who are ineligible for vaccines, subject to the regulations of the ports we visit. Exemptions are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Children under five years old (who are not yet eligible for COVID-19 vaccines) are not required to apply for a vaccine exemption but must still follow all other requirements for unvaccinated guests. To request an exemption, please call us: North America: 1-800-PRINCESS United Kingdom: 0344 338 8663 Please note that Canada is supporting a process for medical exemptions to vaccination with proper documentation. Cruises that begin, end, or visit Canada will require sailing guests who are not Canadian citizens, and ages 12 and above, be fully vaccinated, unless they are granted a medical exemption. Find out if you can enter Canada at travel.gc.ca^. ^You are now leaving princess.com and navigating to a 3rd party website that is not owned, operated, or controlled by Princess or any of its affiliates.
  3. Another Reason to go on Celebrity. Their casino's are 100% non smoking and its wonderful. I am still Prime with Royal and always plan to be. I am also Diamond plus with 405 points BUT I love celebrity so much more than Royal. The food is so much better, no smoking in casino, The design of the ships, the pool areas, the upgraded level of service.. The only thing I like Royal better for is the entertainment. I will still go on Royal for new big ships and when friends want to go on Royal or I need a quick 3 night cruise but I have decided to mostly focus my bankroll on Celebrity and having status in their casino. I know I am halfway to pinnacle on Royal but I just like celebrity better.
  4. You start at zero and have to work your way up. I am currently doing this now with celebrity.
  5. Go on the new Edge class ships.. Edge, Apex, or Beyond.. They all leave from Florida from Nov-April which is the Caribbean season.. If you need a summer cruise from florida only one option which is Equinox. That is a solstice class ship. It is still very good and in fact I am going on Equinox in 5 weeks and I am very excited about it. But the wow factor is on the Edge class ships.. I went on Edge and Apex last summer and I have been hooked on Celebrity ever since.
  6. I agree I never use it all either lol especially when I am on a short 3 nighter
  7. I agree with Matt use Scootaround. I have used them several times. They deliver the scooter to your stateroom and pick it up from your stateroom when the cruise is over.
  8. I also use a CPAP machine. Fill out the form but don't be nervous if they dont have the water for you right away. On the first day meet your room attendant and remind him/her that you need distilled water and an extension cord and they will make sure they bring it to you at NO COST by the time they turn down your bed that evening.
  9. I have used this perk before.. If you are prime you get 5% off the other cabin. If you are signature you get 10% off the other cabin.. I am not sure how much you get if you are masters.
  10. Its not just Royal Caribbean that charges these gratuities its every cruise line. You should of done more research before you went on the cruise to find out about all charges and practices cruise lines have. Sounds like based on how you feel cruising in general isn't for you.
  11. One other thing I forgot... After you go on your first cruise based on how much you played they also take money off the cruise that is combinable with the net50 offer.. They will give you a quote and then just say to them well based on my previous play how much extra can you take off. They calculate it and let you know. last time I got an additional $600 off for asking that but they dont tell you that you have to ask..
  12. Their equivalent to prime is much harder to get.. Unless you are a heavy slot player it will take 2-3 times to get to the level... Net 50 is when they take the base rate before whatever the online promo is and take 50% off.. It seems to give about a 25% discount off what the online rate is but it includes the perks which I like.. Then like I said there are times they send offers for a free veranda (balcony) but those dont include the perks. I would say if they lift the vaccine mandate for 2023 try to get on an Edge class ship in the Caribbean that way you get a sense of their best class and you can see if you really like it or not. I have a feeling you will especially if you get a suite. I got a really great deal on the suite.. It was $6,000 on their new ship beyond and I got it for $3,100 including taxes and fees but it also comes with premium drink package, upgraded wifi, tips, and $600 in OBC plus full suite benefits including their suite only restaurant Luminae which alot of people say is better than Coastal Kitchen. Also on their new ship beyond which is what I am going on they made the suite only area even larger and added a pool to the sundeck so I am looking forward to trying that out as well. I also just feel like you get treated a little bit extra special. Small touches really but I have really enjoyed my experience. I am going on them this July as well but not in a suite so I will have to wait until January to tell you about that experience.
  13. Yes sadly they do use the same annoying point system lol. I still do go on Royal especially for short weekend cruises and when Royal releases a big ship I always like trying new ships.. However, last summer when I went on Edge and Apex I fell in love with celebrity. Their included food is so much better so if you dont want to eat in the specialty restaurant you dont have to its more of a choice. I like to mix it up and do have restaurants and half dining rooms. I so enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the ship during the day and then at night they have things going on until 2-3 am if you want.. Also the casino. I love that the casino is No smoking. For me that makes it much more enjoyable. The shows are not as good as Oasis class shows but they aren't bad. The pool deck is also so much nicer and so are the chairs they all have cushions. I know that the suite area called the retreat is a ship within a ship and sky suites which are junior suites get full suite perks which is nice.. I am doing my first suite on Celebrity beyond in January for my birthday so I will have more info after that.. The only other complaint I have is how they give comps.. Its very difficult to get a fully comped cruise like hoe Royal does it.. Also when they do give a comped cruise it doesn't come with the perks like when they give discounts.. I find many times their "net50" offer is better than a comped cruise because then we get drink package around the whole ship, tips, and wifi included so for me that is a better deal.. Let me know if you have specific questions I would be happy to answer them if I can.
  14. agree symphony is a better ship.. If they were choosing Edge, Apex, or Beyond I would go with those. The tech on those ships are just as good as symphony in my opinion
  15. to get a good feel don't do their older ships for your first one. Do at least solstice class or edge class. That way you can really see their product at its best..
  16. I didn't use the words upscale lol. What I like about celebrity is the following: The food in the MDR is much better than Royal's food in the MDR. I like that they have a sommelier come over and make wine suggestions for you and then take your order. I like the design of the ships and the artwork. I like that there are much less children around and the children that are on the ships are much more well behaved in my opinion than on Royal. They dont run around pressing elevator buttons and being loud and annoying. Not saying all children on Royal are like that but I find it even less on Celebrity. I like the ambience and atmosphere at the bars and I like that the Casino is Non smoking.
  17. The food on Celebrity is much much better than Royal's food in my opinion. As on Royal you can order as much food as you want on Celebrity. The entertainment is good especially on the new edge class ships but it is not as good as on Royal Oasis class ships. I prefer the atmosphere on Celebrity better, the food, the non smoking casino, the bars, and overall the whole celebrity experience. I think if you go on the new edge class ships which would be Edge, Apex, and now Beyond you would enjoy it.
  18. Yes I sailed celebrity several times and I love it. Their new Edge class ships are beautiful and fun to be on. What specific questions do you have?
  19. Being only Prime does not mean that you only get interior offers. I also am prime and get plenty of Balcony offers. Your offers are based on how much you play in the casino, how many hours you spend in the casino, and how much you win/lose in the casino. Plenty of Prime players get Jr suite and balcony offers because many people who only play table games find it difficult to move to signature as you earn so many less points than you do on slots.
  20. That is crazy they did not issue you a new certificate. On Wonder a few weeks ago they issued me a new one. When I got on I had one but at the end of the cruise I had many more points then what it was worth so they issued me a new one. I have no idea why one ship would do this and not the other. Very frustrating that they are so inconsistent.
  21. I think you are 100% correct. I was on the Wonder March 18th sailing and the Windjammer was open most of the time. They also had alot of staff in the windjammer even just walking around getting drinks. It was obvious they wanted to make sure there were no hiccups with Wonder. Its too bad they made Symphony and other ships suffer because of this.
  22. I have been Prime for years and they have never limited the amount of drinks I get while playing.. I do make sure to tip the waiters $5 every time they bring me a drink. not sure if that makes a difference but they come around alot to check on me and I always get free drinks.
  23. I hope the parade is ready for your sailing. I go the week after you guys and I really want to see the new parade lol
  24. Talking about Casino Certificates and Codes
  25. I would of been upset if I had someone in my party doing that lol. But luckily I just go with my boyfriend and he lets me pick the order of our rides lol. The whole way Disney does this new system annoys me. I hate that they are charging for things that for 20 years was free. I wish they would do what Universal does with their express pass that truly is a pass where you can cut the line.
