  1. I found that some of the metal bottles leaked, even unopened. Also I had a couple that just tasted off.
  2. When we had the same cabin on Constellation we had a lot of noise from the connecting door to the Penthouse. You could literally hear their conversations. Any one else have this and had it improved with the refit on Summit?
  3. Regarding the shade in the Retreat deck, although from the photos it looks quite shaded with the wooden slats etc. I have to say in the real heat of the summer - I was on board In Europe in June when it was extremely hot - those slats do not actually do a lot and shade is very sought after and difficult to find.
  4. We did the chefs table a couple of years ago and were underwhelmed. We were promised an officer as a table mate and no disrespect as the company was lovely but the guy who produces the daily planner and the shore excursions manager are not officers. The meal was nice but not wow. We were in Luminae and I think the upcharge is not worth it as we had lovely meals and service in Luminae already. Back to the point the wine was included in the cost
  5. We were told they had unsold suites but were told the following cruise 29th June was pretty full. We had the outside area of the Retreat Lounge pretty much to ourselves most nights. Apparently on the previous cruise it was full every night and they needed 3 bartenders to cope.
  6. Is it because they want 3 rooms and only 2 are over 21
  7. I don’t know about the cost but they do not seem to be very private. People walking past all the time etc. I would check you like the location before committing.
  8. We had 2115 on Equinox and would book it again.
  9. The toiletries on Edge and therefore presume going fleetwide are CoBigelow. Pleasant unisex fragrance but in large refillable containers. Presumably to save waste but I don’t find the concept hygienic.
  10. We just got off the Edge and didn’t like the afternoon tea in the Retreat Lounge buffet style. There is a sink which I only saw used once all cruise. It has lost the sense of occasion that afternoon tea should have IMO. Also no tea pots and if you can manage to catch the eye of a butler they stick a tea bag in a cup and give it to you like that. Not classy.
  11. The suite life on Celebrity is excellent. We have never done the luxury lines like silver seas, regent etc but compared to the mainstream suite experience celebrity excels. Even better than Oceania suite experience. They just seem to care more. Queen’s Grill on Cunard which is a similar price bracket, not including drinks (which are expensive) is inferior - except for the dining experience.
  12. The suite concierge is worth having especially if you have any issues. Much better than dealing with guest relations
  13. I couldn’t find this cruise - do you mean leaving on 6 jan and returning the 10th?
