    General Info about food on the Nieuw Statendam. (HAL overall)

    Of course not. I was just suggesting that if someone were truly preoccupied with ingredients, freshness, and customization, he or she might receive maximum accommodation in the specialty restaurants.

    Perhaps splurge and dine in the specialty restaurants most nights? I'll bet you can get more personalized attention and menu alternatives in those venues.
  3. Yeah, it's a major bummer to hear that even the newest build, the Nieuw Statendam, is allowing smoking in its casino.
  4. Such a disappointment. HAL, get with the times!

    Celebrity Edge- Major Ship Envy!

    I agree. The Solstice class is stunning. The best design of a ship I have seen.

    Celebrity Edge- Major Ship Envy!

    Cruise Critic gave the Edge a score of 4.5 out of 5. Its review, as well as the handful of others on CC, suggest that the Edge is not for cruisers who like traditional experiences. No surprise there. I'll admit that my eagerness to try Edge has been tapered a bit since my original post.
  7. What is that odd looking thing lying next to the sole?
  8. Please don't let one bad apple spoil the bunch. Most of us really appreciate what you're doing.

    Just curious, have you been on Princess' Royal class of ships? I think those ships have visually stunning interiors, but I have yet to try them.

    Exactly! All these posts about their needing to lower the price. The invisible hand of the economy controls that. Sure, you might not be willing to pay the going rate for a verandah stateroom on the Edge, but somebody is.

    I respectfully disagree. I give HAL the slight edge for MDR, but I prefer the buffet (especially its wonderful layout) and pool-side burgers on Celebrity. Dive-In is great, but it can sometimes take a while. And I was shocked at how amazing the Celebrity burgers were. I think we may have eaten 4 of them on a 7-day cruise...

    Oh, the cruise reviews had already been brought up and discussed in this thread. I thought you had other sources. I wouldn't use these 6 reviews (some are a bit suspicious) to conclude, "The early reports on Edge are not good." I thought you meant some CC article or other travel publication.

    Mind sharing your source of the "early reports"? I'm interested.
  14. Are the Billboard shows in the main theater a thing of the past?

    Celebrity Edge- Major Ship Envy!

    Man, they are worth reading if you like a good laugh. One person loved it, 5 hated it. Nothing in between. A divisive ship, no doubt. Though a couple of the reviewers clearly have an axe to grind, for whatever reason. One person said, "The most entertaining activity was the life boat drill." Now we know that can't be true and must be 100% hyperbole.
