  1. Yes, Cruise on Celebrity which is pristine and Non-Smoker friendly. Casino is nonsmoking. It is clean and delightful. I still cruise on HAL from time to time but no HAL casino for me.
  2. Something else to consider. Your deck 8 aft balcony will be directly beneath deck 9 aft pool loungers and cruisers using them, dragging them. How to you feel about noise? The deck 9 sea view bar is located not directly above but close enough.
  3. Without a doubt, the Z-dam layout is much better.
  4. What a clever suggestion. Thank you.
  5. Thanks CruiserBruce and sevenseasnomad for responding. Your information was particularly helpful to our situation. We selected Cabin 8, the Pink cabin. It is about in the middle, but still a walk to the Buffet. We decided the price for Butler service is a bit too costly even though it sounds very grand. I'll bring some gallon zip lock bags, go to the buffet, empty the plate of chicken into one bag and salad into other bag and schlepp them down to our cabana. It's all good.
  6. We've reserved a cabana at Half Moon Cay. No butler service. Is it possible to get lunch from BBQ Buffet delivered to the cabana? Thanks for answering. Chelly p.s. I know snacks and fruit are delivered upon arrival. Just wondering if I need to hike from buffet to cabana carrying plates of food.
  7. I would definitely book the Deck 5 cabin. I've cruised for nearly 40 years. Always prefer a cabin between passenger decks. I don't care to be over or under public spaces. Noise
  8. Has anyone on HAL had experience with reporting smoking on a balcony? How quickly does staff respond after reported? If at all.
  9. I realize this is an old thread. I am wondering if anyone has been in Solstice cabin 6239 recently and were smoking and noise from deck below a problem? Thanks for helping.
  10. Well alto....I was thinking that was a lovely gesture until I got to your last eight words.;p
  11. Wow alto! Spectacular photos and commentary. I'll be on the Silhouette's Aug 23 Baltic cruise. Your review is making me very happy for making this choice. Can't thank you enough. Chelly
  12. My tile arrived in yesterday's mail. Happy New Year!
  13. I called Mariner Society today as I still haven't received tile. I also talked to Chloe. She said she would send me a tile and I should receive it in 4 to 6 weeks.
