  1. When I called Celebrity today I was very clear that I was asking about the Retreat Lounge indoors. You may be right ,I’m just reporting what I was told.
  2. It took a couple minutes to find where I read it . On the Celebrity website , under "Bars and Lounges" Scroll down to Retreat Lounge . ".......open 24/7 and offers a new fully stocked and expertly staffed bar " I started to second guess myself so I called Celebrity and they confirmed the new addition.
  3. 100% agree with you on the things that needed to be fixed. I noticed 1 extra thing that was a small gripe on the Edge vs S Class. S Class had Michael's Club which had a nice bar in the lounge. The Retreat Lounge is nicer than Michaels Club but I missed have an actual bar that I could belly up to for a couple drinks while I waited for my wife to get ready for dinner. We would stop in after dinner also as the bartenders were often very friendly. When we were on the Edge ,they told us next ship ,Apex, will have one. Don't know if that happened but it looks like it did on Beyond.
  4. Definitely a no brainer! Like you said ,a year from now , prices will drop significantly
  5. After watching the reveal and reading all the posts , I could not wait to book. We were on the final sailing of the Edge,3/8/20, -3/15 /20 ,as the world was changing. Then I checked prices.......... Looking at 9 night repo route out of NJ .$8100 pp. Called the casino rep who booked me on the Edge and got a CS for $4K pp. Still high but not stupid and I will keep watching for additional drops.
  6. The Edge has a sliding door between the bedroom and living room. It is not great for sound insulation. I kept the TV turned down when my wife was sleeping and it was OK. Just booked the Beyond for October 22.
  7. I was contacted yesterday by the independent casino rep that booked my March sailing on the Edge. They offered a comp cruise on pretty much any sailing and we are looking at March/April 2021. I am really hoping there is a vaccine available by then so we can go without being worried.
  8. I apologize if this has already been discussed but I have a tier level question. Prior to my March 8 sailing on the Edge , I had not cruised for several years. I was the lowest level ,pearl ,on that cruise . Gave them some solid play at table games on that cruise. I could not find my current tier level. Any idea where I can find it?
  9. Just opened an email from Celebrity . It confirms they are extending the suspension of cruises for an additional 30 days. Crews are being sent home or can stay on ship with if they have no place to go.
  10. Thanks WonderMan3. I'll eventually figure this out. I'm used to dealing with MLife and one host .
  11. I booked my Celebrity Cruise through an independent host. When I looked at what they assigned my tier level , it is Pearl. I have been Platinum with M Life for over 8 years. I would not care but it looks like there are some free play and promo chip benefits to being a higher tier. Is that something the casino host on the ship could address or just forget about it?
  12. Thanks for posting the pics and it does look like privacy is lacking. I could be wrong but it also looks like they face away from the pool. I'm used to the ones at hotel pools which all face the pool. I think I'll pass.
  13. Are the Edge cabanas not as nice as the ones on Silhouette? I was thinking of booking one for our first sea day next week.
  14. Thanks, that is what I thought. Maybe I’m weird but preference is to sit at the bar when I’m alone. Any idea how long the outside bar is open up there?
