  1. TeeRick—-you’re absolutely right on that one! Ha ha ha!
  2. If you’re on an Edge class ship, do the suites. The suite lounge, the suite pool and hot tub and bar....superb!
  3. YES YES YES! I’m with you! Let’s hijack a ship and hit the seas. Done with those same old Caribbean ports. The ship is always my destination.
  4. Did a mock booking yesterday and contacted TA right away...we saved more than $1000 on back to back Edge sky suites for next year.
  5. The suite lounge is lovely so get there early enough to enjoy breakfast from their fresh fruits and pastries assortment and a have hot cup of coffee or tea or hot chocolate as well as juices or water. Relax until someone comes to you to check you in. Soak up all the perks you’ve paid for!
  6. Mock booking yesterday (6/9). The gold banner above the suites that says “4 perks”—-it would seem like the 4 perks are included with a suite booking price listed, correct? Well, no. As you progress after choosing a suite, you have the opportunity to PAY for the 4 perks. I asked the Celebrity Captain’s Club booking agent and he explained the price shown on the cruise listing page is the “basic” price. Then why the 4 perks banner I asked? No explanation other than the reiteration that the price shown is the basic price. THEN TAKE THE 4 PERKS GOLD BANNER OFF THAT PAGE! Am I crazy or does it seem to you to be false advertising?
  7. Hi Noreen. we had a crazy boarding experience also. I left the snaking line and asked someone if the empty area to the right of the line was for suite guests. He seemed confused but said “yes’ rather hesitantly. I motioned my hubs to leave the serpentine line and come over and stand with me. About that time, our friends from Scotland that were on the Edge with us came in and we motioned them over. Then, one of the security guards came over and told us we couldn't stand there! We told her that we’d been told this was the suites line. She looked at us quizzically and then went off to check with her fellow officers. About that time, we saw a Celebrity employee on the other side of security and we motioned them over. He took us through the gates and upstairs where he ran into someone who knew where the suites waiting area was. Nothing at all like Pier 25’s suite waiting area but it was fine...juice, coffee, pastries, etc. We kept seeing wheelchairs coming down the ramp through our small doorway...dozens of wheelchairs. Then it was time to board and we realized why they needed so many wheelchairs. That 45 degree ramp up to the ship was CRAZY!
  8. Oh..if you think the Silhouette retreat deck was nice, wait until you see the Edge (or Apex) retreat deck...and the Retreat lounge is wonderful and huge...the width of the ship - with floor to ceiling windows and a shaded outdoor area.
  9. Love reading this, Noreen! We love to make an adventure out of driving too! From Indiana, We stopped at Pop’s Pepper Patch Pickle Factory along the way and other crazy places. We like to find cool local places for lunch or dinner. We were on the Edge right before we crossed the street to get on the Silhouette. Sometime, you HAVE to experience the SUITE life on the Edge. It’s sublime. Different from the Silhouette because they had the chance to build it for suites instead of trying to fit the retreat decks and the retreat lounge into already built spaces.
  10. You’ve done better than we have! Before we found out, we’d been to the grocery, the hair salon, and out to dinner with neighbors! Of course, we were pretty sanitized the entire time with hand wipes and soap! We feel fine but we’re staying in through Friday...especially since I now have an excuse not to go to my dental appt scheduled for Monday! Yahoo! (I know, I’m just delaying the inevitable. Sigh.) We had such a great time on our cruise! It will be fun to relive it through your photos and posts!
  11. You know a Canadian man who was on our cruise got sick March 1st but didn’t report to sick bay. He has since been diagnosed with COVID 19 back home in Waterloo. All of us on the cruise should self quarantine through this Friday.
  12. What happened to all the rest of this discussion on this topic? Looks like they’ve all been edited out?
  13. I think people wanted to hear that, other than your bike rides, you are self quarantining yourselves through Friday.
  14. It’s a regular martini...you just drink it alone in your house!
