Default Alcoves are priced per Alcove- NOT PP (from Celebrity)

I just got this email from Celebrity...

Hi Paul --

The pricing for The Alcoves is a set price per-Alcove, with each Alcove accommodating up to four people. The cost is not per-person; however, there currently is a system glitch that does imply otherwise. Work is now underway to resolve that technical difficulty asap....

Thanks for asking, Paul --

Thanks Paul for checking that out! I was going to call Celebrity tomorrow but now I don't have to . Even at $149 per Alcove, I doubt that we will book one-I'd sooner use the money on the specialty restaurants. Only 187 days to go

Apparently they have that part of it cleared up, it is per alcove. Some had booked it at $69.00 per person (not a typo) which was obviously not the price in the Press release. They are working on the glitch but if you book it, the only way you can do so is by bringing up 1 person and that allows the booking. If you try to pick 2,3 or 4 people it will not allow you to book it. Still pricey in my opinion for the lack of amenities. As someone said at least give them wifi for free for the day. And I think its a big mistake that they don't face the water.
