  1. Does it include today? Boarding the Equinox in about two days 🙂
  2. Was going to post this exact thing. I'd encourage you buy ahead of time, we did and it was an nice perk.
  3. I haven't cruised Royal recently, but did the Celebrity Equinox this past summer (Western) and going again for Thanksgiving (Eastern), and we have Freedom booked for summer 2020. We can't find a decent deal on the Edge since my wife is a teacher we have to cruise during peak summer times (the edge is in Europe for summer). We had similar experiences on the Equinox. I felt it was a lot more relaxation and less (frills?) than Royal. The show quality was definitely lacking, but we enjoyed the comedians. Both of us are in our (late) 20's, and we did get a little bored towards the end of the cruise. Most of the ship seemed to be in bed by 10:30. However, the food and service was excellent. Our waiter in the MDR remembered us every day and the our som always had a new bottle of Cab or Pinot for us to try every night. Murano (specialty dining) was probably the best I've had at sea. Chops is a close 2nd for me. We'll keep cruising both until we're given a reason not to 🙂 !
  4. On behalf of Delta airlines, I apologize 😀 P.S: I've had my crew bag lost once if it makes you feel any better. Not my roller bag, but my other usual carry on. Flight was tight on space, so I volunteered space in the closet since it was a short haul and generally can go get my own from below. Poof..... got left in ATL. At least I had clean underwear. Oh, and don't use the luggage tracker on the app. It stresses me out.
  5. This makes me happy. We booked a somewhat distant cruise on the Seaside for Summer 2020. I've only sailed Royal and Celebrity, and we are doing another Celebrity in November. We're excited to try MSC, the value and status match were quite attractive. We're doing Aurea Experience to see if it compares to our experience on Celebrity.
  6. We booked yesterday for 2020, and our Travel Agent was able to apply it after our Gold match discount.
  7. We have a 7 planned for November on Celebrity, and stay a few nights in the area with family on shorter voyages. I will agree the value is better for longer cruises, but my work obligations in the summer can be quite a challenge for longer vacations. My crew schedulers keep me quite busy in the summer months being so close to ATL. Unfortunately, my wife is an elementary teacher and off all summer, so we have to get away at off times for her calendar.
  8. Great pictures. We're debating a short 4 night cruise this summer on the Mariner. I love the Voyager Class ships.
