  1. Agree. Used to be when we planned a cruise, it was pretty much a given that it would be on Celebrity. For the past couple of years, Celebrity has been one of 4 or 5 lines we consider, and have been choosing one of the others.
  2. Sometimes you have to wonder how the human race managed to survive all these centuries without becoming extinct. Perhaps it’s because that by being exposed to germs (ew!!), our bodies build tolerance?
  3. I guess it’s like, if no one sees you doing it, it’s not as disgusting in their eyes. Perhaps they need to have finger licking monitors.
  4. If so many people never eat at the buffet, then why is it so crowded?
  5. I have never said that Edge is a failure. However, I have no desire to book an IV room, particulary at outrageous prices. I am just not interested in a glorified oceanview room, & there are tons of alternative ships out there. IMO, it is very telling that the initial scores in reviews for Edge are substantially lower than those for Solstice in roughly the same timeframe. Of course people are free to interpret those scores however they want to prove their point, as am I. Who knows, maybe I’ll win the lottery and be willing to spend the bucks for a suite with a real balcony!
  6. Fair point. I just peeked at the oldest Solsice reviews from late 2008, early 2009, & without counting all the reviews, but just perusing them, it’s pretty obvious that the overwhelming majority are 4-5 star reviews. I recall that when S class came out, I recall when M class debuted, the biggest complaint was that they were too big, compared to C class, & H class. Seems silly now. Other than that, most here loved them. Definitely cannot say that about Edge.
  7. I realize that Cruise Critic member reviews may not be a complete picture, but in comparing Edge reviews to Equinox there is a definite difference in good or bad reviews. Throwing out 3 star reviews as just ok, Edge has 320 reviews with 159 4 or 5 stars, & 68 with 1 or 2 stars. Equinox has 2009 reviews with 1509 with 4 or 5 stars, & 82 with 1 or 2 stars. To me, that is very revealing.
  8. There was only one time that I pre tipped our stateroom attendant, & oddly enough we had the worst service in all of our cruises. Go figure.
  9. Just more corporate snakes trying to get away with anything they can to improve their bottom line. Screw the planet.
  10. And the eXciting deals for Edge are still higher for the eXciting deals for all their other ships. Edge sale prices are still no bargain.
  11. That may be true, but I like the actual ending to the story more.
  12. On our first 3 Royal sailings I thought the bed was the most comfortable. On our recent Caribbean Princess sailing with the new mattress, we thought it was much less comfortable, especially if you sat on the edge. Felt like you would slide off.
  13. Very much enjoying riding along with you. Thanks for taking the time and effort to do so. Curious to see how turn around day goes.
  14. I would be shocked if any other line introduced IVs.
  15. As a long time Celebrity cruiser, & a retiree on a fixed income, I can safely say that I will not be sailing an Edge class ship, especially at premium prices. We sail in Balcony rooms & Edge does not offer any. If that makes me a naysayer, so be it.
