  1. Yes, I had the premium non-alcoholic drink package on the June 27 Summit sailing. Had mocktails, frozen and non frozen, smoothies, and premium waters, (Evian, Pellegrino) all included in the pkg.
  2. I stepped foot on the Edge for my Jan 13 sailing. Had an infinite veranda and did not like the cabin at all. I travel solo so pay double. Will not sail in Sunset Verandas or Suites on Edge to get a genuine veranda because of cost. Besides which, there were other things I did not care for on Edge which require more of a fix than frosted glass and smaller furniture in cabin. I just came back from a delightful Summit sailing in a bonafide veranda cabin.
  3. I think Cel should use a more accurate term than infinite veranda; it is not infinite and it is not a veranda. Very misleading. I was on the Edge in January in an Infinite Verandah. Hated the cabin. One and done for me, never again in an IV!
  4. I used Celebrity' app that I had downloaded onto my android to do online check in for my summer Summit sailing. This morning I called Celebrity to purchase obc with my credit cards and they called me back with corrected information. The problem is they called and left a voice mail message on my emergency contact's phone number!!! Instead of calling my landline or cell number. My emergency person called me and said they got a phone message from Celebrity. I put a call into Celebrity and it turns out all my phone contact information (even in my Captain Club's account) had been replaced by my emergency contact number. I have been sailing with Celebrity for many years and have never had this problem before. The rep corrected all my phone numbers and is notifying IT about a glitch. I used the app to check in for my Edge January 2019 sailing and again for my summer Summit cruise. So it might have happened between those 2 times, hard to tell. But for now on, I will purchase anything directly with a rep and will not be using the app.
  5. Good decision on booking the Solstice. I was in an infinite veranda on my Edge Jan sailing. It really cast a pall on my vacation as I prefer a traditional balcony and the IV was more like an ocean view with a window that opens and closes with AC turning off when window is opened. In the past have been on M class and S class Celebrity ships. Will not book Edge again. Am sailing this summer on Summit. Enjoy your cruise.
  6. Thanks scubacruiserx2 for your reply and for the added information about the sound of dripping or running water. I put a call into HAL, since I am not sailing until 2020, it might be a good time for me to change cabins now. I love aft veranda balconies. Actually any bonafide balcony. I was on Celebrity Edge this past January in an infinite veranda and hated the IV (infinite balcony as Cel calls it). It was really more like an enclosed porch and was so tiny that 2 chairs and a little table barely fit on it. So Nieuw Statendam 's aft balcony will feel like a breathe of fresh air to me.
  7. I was on the Maasdam last summer and my inside cabin had those shims. It didn't help though and the cabin creaked. Was specially annoying at night while I was trying to sleep. I complained ( a lot), they offered me earplugs. I continued to complain, earplugs didnt help, and i finally got moved to another inside cabin on another deck. Problem solved, no more creaking. I have cabin vs5204 on the Nieuw Statendam booked for a next Winter b2b sailing. Is there any way to find out if that cabin (which is next to yours) is having problems with creaking and what HAL is doing to solve creaking problems. Maasdam is an older ship so I would almost expect some noise, creaking issues but not on a brand new ship. I would appreciate anything you can find out. I dont want to spend 2 weeks with issue. Thanks.
