    New Deployment Released

    Hmm... interesting. We are on the Chile to San Diego cruise that finishes Mar 30. Now if refit isnt taking place until November there is a gap from Mar 30 to Apr 10. Would be great if there was a coastal to Vancouver tacked on and we could sail home.

    EMail about Edge

    I got the email but couldn't get the OBC applied because the price has gone up since I booked it.

    New Drink Packages coming to Celebrity?

    Does anyone actually believe they’re free? The difference in price, though, was considerably less than the perks’ actual worth so for us a good deal. Sent from my iPad using Forums

    New Drink Packages coming to Celebrity?

    Not sure if it applies to all their itineraries but my TA provided me with pricing the other day for Hawaii that included with or without perks. So baseline pricing was available for that cruise. Doing the math, for us, the perks were a very good deal.

    Pickleball on the Cruise Ships

    I was on the Emerald earlier this year for a South American cruise and they had pickleball then. Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Passport Stamps

    We did a 30 day South American cruise earlier this year in which they took our passports at beginning of the cruise and returned at the end. I was happy to see some stamps in it from some of the countries we went to including the Falklands which had a penguin on it :)

    Finally!! Received an upsell offer

    Super happy for you, Lisa!!! Sounds like you got a very good deal too. I would have taken that too. We had two upsells for South America that weren’t even worth considering. Yay for you. What a great way to celebrate your anniversary and Alaskan cruise. Caribe balconies are da bomb !!! [emoji8] Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Finally!! Received an upsell offer

    Fingers crossed for you, Lisa! I know how much you have wanted one of these and your disappointment with realizing your TA wasn’t passing these on to you. If this doesn’t work, maybe even better and you get a move over !!! Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Emerald Princess to Alaska

    Agreed! Friends picked us up from the airport and said, "I guess you'll be glad to sleep in your own bed tonight." And we just laughed and said no!!!! So comfortable...

    Emerald Princess to Alaska

    Also spent 30 days on her in March. No complaints, problems at all. Have booked another cruise on her. Sent from my iPad using Forums

    San Francisco Wine

    I can highly recommend Edge of the World Tours out of San Francisco. We've used them twice now. For what it's worth, they're also very highly rated on Google reviews, Yelp and Trip Advisor. We have a coastal in Sept and this time we're using Max NapaTours, also well reviewed, but we haven't experienced them ourselves yet. You'll get much more value using a private operator anyway.

    San Francisco Wine

    If you are there until 11 p.m. and thus no worry about getting back to ship in time, I’m not sure why you wouldn’t just look at doing this privately. We have done this several times when stopping in San Francisco; there are lots of good operators to choose from. Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Curtis Stone restaurant replace Sabitinis?

    Food is so subjective. We went to Share on the Emerald in March and loved it. Great food and service. Unfortunately it was pretty quiet so not sure how well it’s doing. I have found over the years the specialty steak houses on ships have slipped somewhat, can be a bit meh, and aren’t worth what they charge. But again, so subjective. Sent from my iPad using Forums
