Default Re: Re: Is Celebrity REALLY an upscale line?

Benjamin,

Celebrity represents what you may not want in a cruise. That's why there's a Celebrity and lines, more upscale or more downscale, with a different attitude about dress. Attitudes about adherence to the spirit of the occasion, in any form, dress or comportment, may be more rigid on Celebrity. And that's how some of us want it and want to share it with likeminded people. We don't appreciate people "crashing" the party with their own ideas about what's comfortable for them. What goes for line A or B doesn't have to be across the board to include line C and D. The cruiselines, for variety's sake, need not be monolithic across the board.

Very well said! I could not agree more, and I'm glad that I'm not the only one who feels this way!

A "take all comers" attittude can only bring the lowest common denominator -- and most passengers who book a Celebrity cruise have a different expectation.

Norm.
