  1. Thanks Turtles...that's a good point on the balconies! Does Celebrity offer the upgrade bid possibility as much as NCL? And as far quality, of the ships and so on it seems Celebrity would have the Edge (no pun intended!)? I like the fact that NCL has the air included, but risky for them to put you on a multiple stop flight!
  2. So I know I'm asking in the Celebrity board...so that gives you an idea of what way we are leaning...lol..but we have usually done NCL and Royal...but like the nice cabins did a Haven on NCL last and a suite on our last Royal...so it's either September 3, 22 for the Edge or September 24 for the Jade....Edge out of Rome does 3 of the top Greek Islands plus Naples, Italy (2 days at sea to relax), which I think is a pretty interesting itinerary. NCL goes out of Athens, and pretty much does a Greek Isle everyday (some stops shorter than others)..so nice itinerary too....the NCL includes their free
  3. And I like that you get the free bag of laundry with the Club Balcony!!! Less to stress over when you get home! Plus I believe you get to pre-book specialty dining and entertainment...
  4. I for one am so happy they will be requiring Vaccines!!! When you are on the ship with hundreds of people, you want to know that you are doing what you can to keep everyone safe! And can't blame NCL or any cruise line for doing all they can for safety of all guests!!!
  5. Yep already received our full vaccines so ready to go...fingers crossed!
  6. Opinions....have cruise out of Athens that is sailing in early October..just wanting opinions if it actually could be a go! I know that there is no crystal ball...but hoping for the best..American Airlines starting some non-stop flights to Athens June 6 from Chicago and maybe a few other cities....good sign!
  7. Those are amazing pics!!! Thank you! Have to do some of the things you did!!!!
  8. That is very true on the spending time before the cruise...we always try to do a day or two before the cruise as well...and I know I would love to show Venice to my husband since it's such an incredible city...Looks like it will be the Gem!
  9. Thank you so much!!! I think that sounds fabulous! I have been to Venice once before and it's definitely an amazing city!!! And Dubrovnik sounds so cool as well!
  10. So for 2022, we are looking at the Jade or Gem on different Med cruises, that mostly feature Greek Islands...Any preference between those two ships? The Jade departs Athens does Kusadasi, Turkey; Patmos, Greece; Rhodes Greece; Mykonos, Argostoli, Kefaltonia; Corfu, Greece; Santorini, Greece...back to Athens... The Gem sails out of Venice for Kotor, Montenegro; Corta, Greece; Santorini, Greece; Argostali, Greece, and Dubrovnik, Croatia... I know a lot of people are raving about Croatia these days...but any thoughts on the two itineraries...pricing on the club balcony su
  11. Yes, I just did a booking on the Breakaway for May of 21 (fingers crossed)...and did get the 15% discount for past guests! Pretty good deal, way lower than it was yesterday! Yay!
  12. We are going to be on the Bliss to Alaska (hopefully!) in June, and we are doing the The Haven Spa Suite (H9) that has access to the thermal spa rooms which we did when we were on the Getaway...we loved it so we are thinking we will love that on the Bliss as well. It's not on the same floor as the Haven restaurant or bar but that didn't matter to us too much!
