I´ll be interested in reading the responses, too! I´m looking into a cruise with the Summit and am considering the Concierge Class as well. It will be our first cruise and I thought it would make it extra special. One thing dh is dreading about a cruise is embarkation. Concierge class gets priority embarkation and debarkation. If that even means getting on and off five minutes faster, it would be worth it !

This past May we were on the Summit. It was the first sailing with concierge class. We have to admit it was nice. Not everything was in place as co-ordination, but overall very enjoyable. The draw back was the deck. Large support posts to the deck above. We have booked concierge on the Constellation.

The larger table and cushioned chairs on the veranda was a pleasant surprise. The robes were much nicer, canapés each day and fresh fruit were a nice touch.

Here is a list from the Celebrity web site of the amenities. If you wanted some of the items to take home there is a list in the stateroom of the costs.

the stateroom
welcome champagne
daily fruit selection
canapés
fresh-cut flowers
a menu of pillows - conformance, body, goose, and Isotonic®
pillow-top mattresses
duvets
sofa pillows
leather key holder
personalized stationery
tote bag
umbrella

the bathroom
bath rugs
bath mats
oversized bath towels
hand towels
facial towels
flower vase
frette bathrobes
hansgrohe showerhead
salon-quality hair dryer
a selection of shampoos
body lotions, and soaps
showercap
breath mints
sewing kit

priority service
priority luggage delivery
priority pressing service
shoeshine valet
priority laundry service
extended room service
dining and seating preference

We are booked on l0/20 - leaving in two weeks - we are also booked CC Class and looking forward to it -I understand there are a lot of nice touches - we are also Captain's Club so we now get prior boarding and debarkation - it is a big time saver -
Enjoy your cruise
I posted a similar message and did not receive any replies - happy you did.

We did concierge class on the Millenium in June. We really enjoyed the upgrade in the bedding. On days when we tendered we got to disembark when we wanted to even if we were not on a tour. All of the different perks listed in the above email response added up to a very enjoyable experience. You do have the overhang from the deck above. We did not find this to be a problem. When we wanted full sun it was available around the pool. When we wanted to eat on the veranda or sit and read it was quite nice being shaded a bit.

Have a great cruise.

Is there a charge for shoe shining or is that included in the Concierge price?

Can anyone tell me how much extra money it costs to be in a concierge cabin? I paid for cat 1B - and I'm wondering if it's possible to upgrade now to CC?

Pauli, when I booked my cruise on the Constellation early last March for an early November sailing, the cost difference was only $50 per person from a Cat. 1B to a Cat. 1A. This pricing may be an exception rather than the rule, but my fare went from $899 to $949, including port charges, which I think is a great deal.

Pauli, if you are a Capt. Club member (past passenger) contact your TA right away. We received an email from Celebrity yesterday about a special Upgrade to Conceriege Class from a Cat. 1B. There is a code that goes with the sale, but unfortunately, I deleted the message as it does not apply to our next Celebrity cruise.
Good Luck.

DH and I are booked on Constellation for March 6 in Conc. Class and are really looking forward to the nice amenities! I have a question or two.

Priority Shore Excursions - What does this mean? If the shore excursion that you want is booked, you can still go? Does someone who already booked ahead of you get bumped? That doesn't seem very nice, does it?

Priority debarkation and embarkation- How does this work?

Is a tray of canapes delivered to the cabin or is there a lounge where you go get them? Is this just at a certain time of day?

Is there a conceriege lounge where you can get cocktails/coffee (like on RCI)?

What type of VIP invitations?

It's not earthshattering information that I'm looking for - just curious ahead of time as to how things work and what to expect. We're not used to traveling in the lap of luxury - came across a cc deal we couldn't refuse from our local travel agent so we decided to try it.

Thanks for any information - it all adds to the excitement of the countdown for cruisin'!

Where is the cut-off, if you will, for this class of cabins? I have a Sky deck cabin booked for July and don't know anything about this...
thanks,
Moni

Ok all,

Anyone able to come up with the CC class upgrade information for Captain's Club members will get a really big HUG from me at the Sept 04 sailing.

I guess I can call Celebrity and see what they say. I'll try and let everyone know what I
find out.

Great sailing!

Not all the cabins on the sky deck are considered concierge class. Only those that are in class CC. They are noted on the website and in Celeb's latest cruise brochure. You can also find information about the Concierge class on www.celebrity.com.

Happy Cruizin!
