  1. Our last Celebrity booking was an aquaclass room on Consteallation and booked through Bolsover Cruise Club. With their discounts and classic beverage and gratuities included the cost per person per night was just under £130. I thought that to be a very good deal.
  2. At the risk of sounding like a real anorak I created a spreadsheet to compare US vs UK pricing which took into consideration all of the differences of the two booking types. I felt like I'd completed a training course once I understood all of the differences. It looks like Celebrity are now wanting continuity across the board. The 'new' UK website now mirrors the US .com website. I've read rumours that UK bookings can now take advantage of price drops too, though I'm yet to confirm this. Maybe the admin at BCC could confirm? I don't opt out of gratuities (I actually think they should just
  3. It looks like Celebrity UK are now trying to mirror their cruise deals in the US. Now when booking in the UK you'll have the same options as those booking in the US. Sadly this means UK bookings will now also be subjected to additional charges if selecting the beverage package as a perk under the 'Sail Plus' option. Passengers booking might now need a calculator to work out the true value of the perks depending on the length of their cruise and any loyalty status discounts applicable to perks received. For example, pre booking an internet package gives you 10% discount. An Elite + membersh
  4. It now only offers Gold. They made changes some time ago. Independence has a lounge way too small for the number of people in there.
  5. The Elite status is also interchangeable with LCV on Azamara at an equivalent level. However all three lines have subtle differences. Personally when sailing on RCL I found the Diamond Lounge to not offer any high end brands of alcohol. I also thought the room was far too small for the number of people trying to get in there. However as we pretty much always have a beverage package it's not an issue. There's also the possibility of claiming Gold status on MSC cruises if you're an Elite member on Celebrity. It is a completely separate company to RCCL but they now allow you to register with
  6. The captains club drinks are from a VERY limited menu and are only available between 5pm to 7pm. This Elite benefit isn't bad obviously but people should understand the limitations before choosing to book a guaranteed cabin. All guaranteed suites will allow access to Michael's Club which serves premium alcohol and other beverages during it's opening hours regardless of Captains Club status so you don't need to be Elite or above to blag free booze! Interestingly if you book a guaranteed room in the US you can request a change of cabin once you have been assigned your room. In the UK you
  7. Sailed both a few times. Silhouette is slightly larger despite them both being S class ships. Silhouette accommodates 2886 pax and weighs 122,400 tonnes. Eclipse like Solstice and Equinox is a little smaller with 2850 pax and weighing 122,000 tonnes. It's unlikely anyone onboard would notice the extra passengers though. Silhouette does have the Lawn Club Grill and The Porch. Both are specialty restaurants with additional charges for all other than those staying in royal and penthouse suites. Celebrity Reflection is now sailing from Dublin. This is the fifth and final S class ship Celeb
  8. I appreciate this is a very old thread but for those considering booking Celebrity and thinking about dining in Qsine I have some bad news. Qsine has been replaced with a new specialty dining restaurant called Le Petit Chef. I'd also agree that Qsine was a lot of fun if in a large group or great for those people who like a tapas type meal where you have a lot of different dishes to try. But it's gone. Well it's technically onboard Celebrity Summit but will be replaced within the next couple of weeks by LPC. Anyway, LPC is unusual because you sit at a table which acts as a TV screen wit
  9. Celebrity are particularly bad for massively inflating their drink prices in an attempt to force you to buy their drinks packages. Percentage wise some of their continental beers are inflated even more than your bottle of wine example. So I'd agree with your thoughts 100%. At least their Classic and Premium packages include waters, juices, teas, coffees, frozen drinks, cocktails, mocktails, beers, wine and spirits though. Other cruise line packages are a lot more limiting. The premium package has some fairly reasonable scotches, ports and other spirits included. Just make sure you specify
  10. Great. Perhaps you can have your staff advise all sales people of this because I was told "We get asked this question a lot" and a staunch response of Celebrity UK do not offer B2B discounts.
  11. Hi thanks for the reply. This covers the included flights but what about back to back discounts given by Celebrity. I have confirmation from Celebrity UK (And not Celebrity USA as Alice seemed to think) that they do offer them. If we do choose to book a B2B cruise with yourselves would this be included or not?
  12. Hello We booked our first cruise with yourselves this year onboard Celebrity Constellation. When booking your description of the ship referenced the Retreat lounge. As we're very familiar with the Celebrity Cruise product I was aware that this ship will not have gone through the upgrade / revolution process until 2020. I also know that bottles of water are not delivered to aquaclass rooms daily any more and have not done for some time. I fed this info back to your company and you have since updated your website which will avoid any confusion for other guests. I'm now looking at
