So it sounds like you can buy multiple $200 cards which would turn in to $400 and apply more than one GC to a reservation. Am I reading this right? Potentially a 50% off cruise.

That's what it looks like if you see the terms and conditions.

I think the maximum discount is $500.

"Gift Card Savings Offer (the “Offer”) applies to new bookings on any Celebrity sailing, except Transatlantic and Galapagos cruises. One Offer per stateroom. Cruise portion of Cruisetours eligible for Offer."

Cards can only be redeemed by calling number. I don't know this for sure, but my guess is the price for calling will be considerably higher than booking through other method.

So then on a 4-7 night cruise, the max would be $200 (purchased gc) and $200 (doubled up).

It does look like you can use your own travel professional as well. Gift card and Offer are redeemable only by contacting your travel professional or calling 1-866-225-6450.

Thanks OP, was just talking to my wife about taking a cruise next year. And Celebrity is our favorite cruise line.

so do you mean discount of $400 per person? does it mean that booking a cabin with, say, spouse - you'd get $800 off that cabin FROM the price your own agent is ready to give you on 4-day cruise?

to repeat ALL parts of my question:
1. can you start with the LOWEST POSSIBLE deal you can find? (say 4-day cruise that you find 80% off brochure)
2. are no cruises blacked-out at all?
3. is same household allowed 2x$200x2spouses, i.e. $800off same cabin?

if all this is allowed, this might mean half-price off of very good discount to begin with?? how will port charges, taxes and gratuity be calculated? (alas, based on gross? or not necessarily?)

This is awesome. I was looking to book a cruise that has ports of call in Norway, and Celebrity has it (whereas I found none through Norwegian Cruiselines...). In for two $500 cards.

I called Celebrity and was informed they only match 1 gift card amount 200 or 500 based on the length of travel.

So if you buy 2 $200 gift cards and use them on 1 room for two people they are only matching 1 for $200 bucks.
So if you buy 2 $200 gc you have $600 worth of credit towards the cruise.

bohicagain, your post requires repeated proofreading. And after all: not clear what prevents two individuals from requesting same cabin AND both individuals requesting a match for their individual $200 cards. Anyone?

On the details, it clearly states that you can apply up to two gift cards, but they will only credit up to $200 for a 4-7 night cruise and $500 for 8 nights or longer. If you can come up with a way to breakup the transactions, then you will be good to go, but otherwise, not nearly as good as I originally thought.

ok Dus, since you bought two cards - how are breaking up the transaction?
