While cruising is still fresh in
everyone’s mind, we are planning the Virginia Trace and
Friends cruise for February
17 – 24, 2019 on
the new Celebrity ship, the EDGE.
planning much earlier than usual to experience this new
class of Celebrity ships. Cabins are now available for
17, 2019 booking
and they are already disappearing. Various cruise tour
companies are able to hold blocks of cabins in
anticipation of customer booking and they do not have to
release them until several months before the sailing
that in the current environment early booking is
essential for the best cabin selection. Cabin
availability now is the best it is ever going to be for
the date we have selected. This new ship is booking up
very fast. The announcement flyer for the seven day
western Caribbean cruise is attached.
descriptive video for the EDGE is on the following web

As for the
2018 sailing on the Reflection, we have again selected
Yankee Trails to handle the booking, provide some
incentives, and a free bus to/from the departure port,
At this time,
there is no deadline since the Yankee Trails incentive
is guaranteed ($75 ship board credit per cabin) and
Celebrity is currently offering either the Beverage
Package or the $300/cabin onboard credit. Should
Celebrity add any additional incentive or price discount
between now and 75 days prior to the cruise, it would be
applied to your reservation. Cabin pricing is not
guaranteed and Celebrity could raise the prices if
bookings go exceptionally well. Of course cancellation
with FULL refund
of deposit is still available 75 days prior to sailing.
Julie Burns is
holding some cabins on Deck 7 in the E3 category. There
are also some cabins on Deck 8 and Deck 9. Any past
Celebrity Captain’s Club member (and you should join if
you have sailed Celebrity) can get a within category
free upgrade, i.e. pay for an E4 and get a pick of an
E3, or an E3 and get a pick of an E2, etc. Of course
other categories are available including Concierge (Deck
11) if you want extra cruise points. See the deck plan
and discuss your preference and availability with Julie.
