I am surprised at the lack of concern about this "pricing policy." I book my own cruises, arrange my own flights & hotels & find my own excursions. That is how I afforded 2 -3 cruises a year. I was very loyal to Celebrity. I will not be in the future. I have NO INTEREST in getting flowers in my room or having someone provide "excellent" service to arrange my vacation - I do NOT need that. And, I will not pay hundreds more to cruise an identical itinerary on Celebrity. The cruiselines are trying to put the tootpaste back in the tube - consumers, I hope, are smarter than that.
