Is anyone out there going on the Galaxy on July 29th from Baltimore? We are considering it. The room with a balcony is super expensive, though. Anyone have any recommendations for a travel agent that offers great prices? Were looking at a Category 2 Anyone else going on this trip? We would love to hear from you!
We are going on the May 17th out of Baltimore and I have noticed that the cruises leaving from there just keep going up and up, so if you are planning on going I would book now or wait till it gets closer to when you want to leave and hope the price goes down.
we are booked on the september 30 sailing for the 11 night caribbean. We have a catergory 5 outside delux joining cabins, and we paid $1998.82 for 2 people. We booked that as soon as we found out that they added the baltimore sailings. I would have liked to get a balcony cabin, but I prefer to spend more when i get to the islands than on the cabin (just my preference, I'm sure it's awesome to have a balcony cabin). My travel agent is A.A.A., if you are a member of the captains club, you should have also received coupons in the mail, stating that if you book on the galaxy before the end of February, you will receive a $100 shipboard credit. We got that deal, so it is like paying $1898.82 for a 11 night cruise. what a deal. I would book now before prices start getting even higher. Good Luck
We're on the 7/29 from Baltimore. We booked back in November when we first heard. According to our ta she had to make the rounds at Celebrity to get us the $100 shipboard credits because the price is now considerably higher. I don't know the current price, but our booking is a very good value for an 11-day cruise. However we booked two connecting inside cabins for our family of four, the extra space (and bathroom) was worth more than a balcony to us.
We have booked a Sky Suite (and two other cabins) on the Galaxy for the Feb.1 sailing. If you decide on a Sky Suite, DO look at the diagrams of the balconies in the catalog. I have learned from other cruise boards, that "all Sky Suite balconies are not created equal." I was also advised not to choose one on the port side.
I called around and shopped for price, ended up with Cruises, Inc, a wholesaler I have used several times since 1995. Try Claudia, 800-952-3289. Please do not send anything to my Email on this, rather reply on this board. This is a surprise for my husband. He doesn't know he is going on a trip! Happy Sailings.
We're booked on the Aug. 9th sailing from Baltimore. We are traveling with my two teenage daughters. I hope I chose the right ship. I cruised as a kid and loved it but my family has never been on a cruise. We booked a veranda room and an inside room directly across, both on the penthouse deck. According to the above messages, we did not get a deal! oh well...

I have a sky suite as well, but on a March sailing. I had to check my ship definitions, but our cabin is on the starboard side. I hadn't heard about avoiding port side. Do you know why? Friends have a cabin on port side.
By the way, when will you tell your husband about his surprise cruise? and how?
