  1. My thoughts exactly. Could not figure out why it was fixed instead of having hinges so it could fold up to give more flexibility for space.
  2. The infinite verandah is not a "true balcony" where you open a sliding door and actually step out onto a balcony and can close the door behind you.
  3. We quite enjoyed the Lawn Club on the Silhouette in Feb 2020 and found both food and ambiance to be enjoyable. As another poster noted, every specialty restaurant will have both good and bad reviews. If I recall correctly we were still in port when we dined so wind was not an issue. We don't tend to do a lot of specialty dining but thanks to the sage advice from fellow members here, we did wait to book until we could get a discount so personally we thought what we paid for our LCG dinner was worth it. If you do change your mind and decide to book the LCG, as my fellow Canadian Pinboy
  4. Hi dimiegirl. We also tend to prefer bed by the balcony on our cruises. FWIW though, in our opinion we found the stateroom layout on the Edge with the bed by balcony (infinite verandah) to be pretty tight quarters. I actually would have preferred to have the bed by the bathroom. Our friends on either side of our stateroom had bed by bath and the cabin just seemed "roomier." Of course YMMV. I truly hope you enjoy your cruise on the Edge .... the ship is beautiful!
  5. Thank you. And ooops, I actually did mean sparkling, lol.
  6. My question lbryant......you mentioned in your first post that you toasted the beginning of your cruise with champagne.....has Celebrity reinstated the "welcome aboard" glass of bubbly or was this something you ordered at one of the bars?? I believe in some reviews of the first few cruises people said that the welcome aboard glass of bubbly was eliminated for now. For me, that is one of the best feelings when stepping onboard a Celebrity ship and receiving that glass to start the cruise! Have a fabulous cruise and looking forward to reading more about your experiences onboard!!
  7. Fabulous review and pics! Echo the many comments of appreciation and thanks that have been made for your time and effort in sharing. So glad to read that this was a fabulous cruise for you 😊
  8. Thank you for taking the time to do a post-cruise review. Good/helpful info and great pics so far! Looking forward to reading more.
  9. Wow! I clearly need some packing tips from you 😊 If I am bringing snorkeling gear along, I always end up struggling to get everything into one suitcase for a two week trip! Actually the more accurate statement is that I simply don't get everything into one suitcase, lol.
  10. Yes good point about what each person considers a good location! You are a wealth of information Lastdance and I very much appreciate your insight with regards to these cabins. If we decide to move forward with booking a suite, I am definitely reaching out to you for more discussion/any other questions to help in choosing a great cabin! 😊 Thanks again!
  11. Thank you. We were in 7222 when we were on the Edge (regular IV) and could see over to the cabins "inside the tracks" of the Magic Carpet. Figured they were suites given the size of the balconies but no idea what category they were.
  12. May I ask what cabin you are in??? If you are not comfortable answering until after you are off the ship I completely understand. As I mentioned in a previous post I have never sailed in a suite before but now considering it, so this is all new territory for me as to how to choose a suite (although I imagine they are all good locations!)
  13. My vote would be the Silhouette w/ABC islands. We were on the first sailing out of dry dock on the Silhouette in Feb 2020 and so she was obviously newly updated and beautiful. Lawn Club Grill was fabulous. Extra day on the ship/extra day vacation with your second itinerary! Love the ABC islands whether you want to tour, snorkel, beach day. Have only been on one M class ship and for me, although the ship was great and we certainly enjoyed our cruise, for some reason that I cannot explain the S class ships just feel more like "home" to me when I board. Whichever choice you make, have
  14. Wow! I'm impressed .... and more than a little jealous that I can't manage that! 😊
  15. Thank you so much for the reply and pics. I think (Lastdance please correct me if I misunderstood) the "magic window" referred to is the "window" that looks from the bathroom out over the room/balcony? And my apologies....I should have specified when I said I work in health care......I am not a nurse. I am a social worker with Oncology and Palliative Care patients working alongside our nurses. And I certainly appreciate all that nurses do, even more so during this pandemic! Enjoy your cruise and keep the observations/experiences coming 😊
