  1. We had a 12 night package. Normally the choices are by the number of nights that you want to book. Fine Cuts can be difficult to get into on certain evenings with the package. If you have a suite that may be different.
  2. I would go with Anthem and the regular veranda myself. I have sailed both. I much prefer S class on Celebrity.
  3. I compared my Eastern Mediterranean cruise that I took last September on the Edge to a Viking cruise. When I added up all of the costs the Viking cruise was cheaper. Yet Viking had the better itinerary, better rooms, and was less expensive when all costs were considered plus had other benefits that I normally do not pay for on Celebrity. I will definitely take a look at Viking for my next cruise.
  4. This seems like a small market to myself...
  5. There is no keeping up with NCL. It is a lower class line. Their aim should be to compete with Viking and others like it. Aim high not low.
  6. The Revolution is all about increasing profits and decreasing cruiser experience unless you are in a suite.
  7. The Edge has the least public views of any cruise ship I have been on. I can't imagine them running it through the Panama Canal. The removal of the Sky Lounge was a huge minus. The Edge removed most of the quiet places on the ship. Now suites may be better for views, but I prefer inside views vs outside views. I am looking at other premium lines... Edgeification is a downgrade unless you are in a suite.
  8. Assuming that the cruise line will properly enforce mask requirements is a tough one to buy. How many trips have you been on lately? The mask rules are way way too easy to bypass. Someone is requested to put their mask up, they comply and put it down after they turn the corner. They can even apologize for it falling down. I have been to 5 or 6 different states and I have not seen a single state with real enforcement. That is not something that I would count on. I do wear a mask properly myself. Now the other argument is that they will enforce it because they have to. You co
  9. I wonder if Celebrity will ever fix this design faux paux. Having a ship full of window cabins and NOT balconies seems like the Edsel all over again. We love our balconies! Window cabins not as much.
  10. "In the meantime let's complain, just a little though! We find that MSC health security stategy, in theory, is well done, the problem, as often, is how the rules are enforced. We saw many people everywhere going around with masks not properly worn or not worn at all, sometimes passing by an officer or supervisor meant you were asked to remedy that situation but we saw many times that be ignored by them." Requote: "Many people everywhere going around with masks not properly worn or not worn at all."
  11. Solstice has a review rating above 4.5. Edge has a rating of 3.5 and this is for a shiny new ship. The Edges reviews match that of the Carnival Triump. A rather infamous ship. I suppose that most cruisers that do not frequent this board will not notice what they are missing on E class unless they have sailed S class more than a couple of times. Most of the E class changes were based upon money savings and not cruiser improvements. I have 3 or 4 large balconies at home. Do I open the window (E class) or go out on the balcony (S class). I always go out on the bal
  12. We have a $100 fine for not wearing a mask. That seems to be ineffective. Perhaps losing a cruise fare will be enough. My betting money is on people pulling their masks down during the show or pulling their mask down low on the nose or perhaps wearing a scarf if allowed. How do you do mask enforcement during the show in the dark? A mask low on the nose would not be a reason for ejection as they could claim that it fell down.
  13. Going to a restaurant is also optional. Yet people try to skirt the rules even though they know the rules. I have no issues with the rules. I just have not seen a single state in the USA actually enforce the rules with success.
  14. This. We have had a mask law since May. However there is only about a 70% compliance rate. People will pull the masks down, wear masks that are ineffective, pull them down while speaking (which is about 70% of the time). The confrontations over masks gets ugly, politcal talk ensues and dinner is somewhat of a disappointment. I am skeptical that X will pull the 30% non compliers off of the ship.
  15. OK. I had expected them to be a bit smarter about this oh well. This sounds like cruising won't start for a while.
