Interesting discussion.

I think that if Celebrity truly wants to align themselves with Oceania, that would mean that they would have to adjust their fares accordingly, & would never be able to fill their ships, even if they went to a more all inclusive model. Azamara is doing that & it seems that there are many who have been turned off by the higher prices, & their ships are so much smaller than Celebrity's. There are many people who are not interested in having drinks included in the fare, because they do not drink.

I know for myself, if Celebrity substantially raised prices, being on a fixed income, I would be driven away from them, even though they are our favorite cruise line, & have been for many, many years.
