  1. Thank you for the information ...this has been a very useful and thorough review. Thanks!
  2. Quick Question - My husband smokes and you mentioned that smoking areas had been changed. Where are the smoking areas now and can he smoke in the casino?

    YC Drink Package Changes?

    I imagine soon the prices for the YC will be up to par with NCL Haven. It will still be impossible to find one since there are many other factors besides the fare that prevents you from finding a cabin - TA allocation and the limited number of suites are just a couple. It is true for all cruise lines not just for MSC. They eventually open up 60 days before sailing date or in NCL/Royal's case, they come up for bid.

    YC Drink Package Changes?

    That is a matter of opinion - I don't particularly care for either and I really don't think champagne makes any day better, as a matter of fact, I would prefer a good cabernet sauvignon or a Sauvignon Blanc at any time. Champagne, whether it's made in the French region or not is not my cup of tea at all.
  5. Thank you for a well balanced review. More and more we have started to think that the infinite veranda is like a bigger ocean view cabin. We didn't know how it would turn up when we booked it 2 years ago. We are excited to see the rest of the ship though in 38 days!

    Pre-Inaugural Edge Review with Photos and Menus

    Thank you for the review, it is amazing! I don't know how you got all that done in 2 days! We embarking on the Edge Jan 20th as you're disembarking and will have to read your review when we return. This will be our first Celebrity cruise. PS: We are Royal/NCL cruisers. Will be going to Alaska in July with Ovation of the Seas visiting the same ports that you did in your Alaska trip. That review was also very helpful for the plans I am working on. Thank you.

    Pier B Key West

    In August, we were the 4th ship docking in Key West and they changed our time and waited until one of the ships left before we docked - at 3:30 pm instead of 1:00 pm. I'm assuming they would do the same thing if there are more than 2 ships that day.

    Edge standard (not iv) verandah photo

    I have not been able to find any regular veranda cabins - there are suites and aft facing cabins (SV) that have open balconies. Otherwise, all seem to be IVs. Please let me know if there are other type of cabins with open balconies.
  9. Most people don't like change and react to things that are different than what they are used to. This is a new class of ship so basically you might say that it is a "beta" that needs to be tweaked and Celebrity I'm sure will take some things into consideration with Apex and others. Will there be negatives? Sure nothing or no one is perfect - it's the overall experience of taking a cruise, not that the veranda was small. I have taken over 30 cruises and my one complaint on almost every cruise is about the passengers who are rude. When we sail on Edge in January, I'm sure we will have some things that we're not used to or some things we don't like but we will enjoy our cruise regardless.
  10. Thank you so much for all the information you have posted, glad you're recovering nicely. I have been reading everything you have posted to my husband who is not as excited as I am to find out about these things ahead of time - he'd just rather get on the ship as soon as possible. Looking forward to seeing you in January!
  11. That's what happened to us - we sail on Jan 20th - will be waiting for you comments about the room and spa.
  12. Thanks! will be looking forward to it - we sail on Jan 20th
  13. Rest up for a couple of days and take care of yourself! AND the info is much appreciated, thank you again.
  14. Have you posted the pics anywhere else? I've been mostly interested in this thread and following Q/A pics here.

    Judging by the Edge photos so far...

    Very few of the cabin/balcony cabins are larger on the Edge if you make a comparison. There are chart showing dimensions listing both on the Celebrity site. The S-class ship balconies are 54 sqft (194 for the cabin) whereas on the Edge the IVs/balconies are 42sqft (202 for the cabin). SV (89 sq ft for the balcony) is the only one that has a larger balcony than the S-class. I didn't look at suites.
