  1. Hi! Welcome to CC! In the spirit of trying to be helpful to get input to your very good cabin location question, I did an online translation of your posting. I hope you don’t mind that I did that. 😀 Question to fellow cruisers who have sailed on an Edge class ship: “We are on a cruise with the Celebrity Apex.Our cruise cabin is an S1 suite on deck 7 at the back and we wonder if there would be noise from the Eden restaurant ?”
  2. Joining your sailings roll call is a great way to connect with fellow cruisers prior to sailing. We connected with a solo cruiser for our Caribbean cruise ( DH & I) about 10 years ago & ended up booking another Caribbean cruise and Euro cruise together because we really enjoyed each other’s company. It was also a great way to share private excursions. We are still in touch today. We’ve also had the experience of being seated @ a table of 6 fellow solo cruisers and that was quite fun as well. Have a wonderful cruise!
  3. Well said! And yes, how do we determine if the bed is next to the bathroom or veranda? Just kidding. So happy to be back to regular cruise questions.
  4. We got the same - classic drink package, stream internet & gratuities for our Euro 2022 cruise in S1 on the Edge. Zero OBC and no premium drink package unless we paid an additional cost for those (which we did). However the discount on the cruise was significant. Our comped cruise is in a reg balcony cabin, zero perks, and no upgrades to cabin class allowed. I’m not complaining at all and am grateful for the opportunity to have such an offer.
  5. That is our plan B as well if our 7 day Nov 2021 Caribbean sailing on the Edge is a “no go”. We will take the cash refund and rent a villa in St Thomas and invite grown son & spouse and brother & SIL. Our cruise was one of the first cancelled last March and the itinerary has either been changed or cancelled 4x. We’d love to sail on the Edge in our S2 suite - a first for both, but if it doesn’t go - we will be going with plan B.
  6. Hi! We are booked on the Silho cabins 2150 and 2152. Our first time in a suite and am worried a bit about the noise from above, but were not allowed to upgrade to S1 unless we paid prevailing rates which are double of original booking. I’ve read the cabin review spread sheet and it’s 50/50 on noisy vs non noisy. 😀 i noticed you mentioned “a little” noise. Can you share more details on the noise factor and if you’ve sailed in these 2 cabins on the Silho? Any thoughts on your experiences would be great. Many thanks!
  7. We are booked November 2022 cabins 2150 and 2152 (aft S2 suites). I am a bit nervous about the Oceanview noise from above but we didn’t have much choice for S2 suites, as there are only a few on the Silho and the majority are located directly under the Oceanview. i read the CC thread on cabin reviews and it was mixed in terms of noisy vs not noisy. Because this was a L&S we were told we could only upgrade at the S1 cabin’s prevailing cost - which is almost double of our original suite booking. So while we feel incredibly lucky to have an aft cabin, I am also very hopeful t
  8. That was our experience as well. Totally different vibe - champagne tower debacle that got a bit out of hand. And overall the crew didn’t appear to be happy at all.
  9. A few years back, when we first started taking cruises we had sailed on Celebrity only once and then booked a Princess Cruise. The Princess cruise had a fantastic 10 day Caribbean itinerary and was on a brand new ship. We were excited to go and had completely open minds. The ship was beautiful and didn’t disappoint. Our assigned cabin steward and nightly waiter & assistant waiter were great. But we found the crew manning the public areas like the cafe, pool area and bars were grumpy, completely unfriendly and appeared to not like their job. The ship was always littered
  10. I ended up changing the reservation to March 2022. Since I’m bring my Sis for her first ever cruise experience, I figured it would be better to push out another year to allow things to settle down a bit. With fingers crossed that by then masks won’t be required while on the ship.
  11. Hi! Thank you for posting this note. If you have time, could you share the link to the FAQ that has detail about AI for BCC comped cruises? It’s a busy time of year - so if it’s a pain to do, I don’t want to impose and appreciate your original post. Hoping I can call back BCC with a specific link/ screen capture and see if they will confirm the AI package is included for a casino comped sailing that was moved from 2021 (prior to AI) to 2022. In the meantime, I’ll do some searching online too. TIA! Stay well.
  12. I’m thinking Celebrity will release the 2022 European itineraries after L&S has expired so that there can’t be a mass exodus from the 2021 bookings. Nothing to base it on - just a wild guess.
  13. We are booked on a 9 day for March 2021 and waiting hear if cancelled or changed ports of call.
  14. Our 9 day March 2020 ABC cruise on the EQ is still taking reservations. Expecting to see a revised itinerary or cancellation. Pretty much a waiting game at this point. I’m guessing they are trying to figure out the plan for the Equinox sailings that are scheduled over 7 days.
