    On Millennium. A few thoughts

    I am glad OP enjoyed the cruise and appreciate the photos and updates! For us, the issue with the AC is a big concern....can you elaborate? We had AC issues on Infinity( Pacific Coastal) and the room became unbearable quickly...the repairman came again and again..the hallway AC also conked out sev times.... If these ships are refurbed in the surface, but a/c and sewage are old, it could be bad news!

    Those without phones and apps would be left out completely I guess...not everyone luves on their phines..esp while on holiday! Printing a one page bio of who is who on board will not tip the balance.,,they still print alot of junk in bulk ..excursion info etc..

    Replacement for Kelly Hoppen Rocker

    Vt..so true! Things I thought would trouble me were no trouble at all ( IV cabin) ; and other issues that arose were not even on the radar ( like bad acoustics in many places including BLU, and Grand Plaza, and too much sun and wind on top decks) Glad I knew so much about EDGE ahead of time..It made it easier to negotiate, but discovering new stuff was also an exciting adventure! Seven days was not enough to see or do it all We have one more cuise booked on EDGE....that should give us time for more acti ities and exploration... After that back to M and S Class

    Ever increasing sales pressure?

    We always have a good time but it is sad that Celebrity has succumbed by being ."Royalized! " The Mattress sales pitches are a new twist!
  6. Thanks for the very interesting chart..

    Live(ish) Millie HK to Singapore

    Always a nice spot for a photo..
  8. We enjoy ballet...and the attendeeswe see span all age ranges! This is a great alliance...if it works out, hope they add more dates ..we are booked through 2020..May on Summit,
  9. The stress is whether or not the flight will be delayed! Flying night before would be better...March weather can be iffy!

    Ever increasing sales pressure?

    The first Specialty Restaurants were " special" in terms of service, ambiance, menu and quality of food. And they were worth an upgraded price..not always so nowadays , nd the prices are higher. Making staff push upgrades is degrading!

    Great photo! Are they changing anything in this area?
  12. I dont think they post those opinions anymore under the excursion listings....so its the port board or here..
  13. Some issues on the 1/27 cruise developed because the early shows had fairly light attendance, and the 9 pm shows were SRO or even more crowded...some folks turned away, They adjusted BLU and maybe other mdr hrs to be a bit early but folks still had trouble getting to the first show, .. Some dining early in BLU left way before coffee and dessert to get to the early show. Used to be easy...early seating went to the late show and late seating went to the early show...more complicated now ! In addition, the middle area of the balcony was reserved for suite guests, and I heard that once or twice the whole balc was for suites, Theater is small and not many other evening choices,, EDEN, if you care for the shows there, or the dark Club.. or noisy .M bar,..

    Ew for the tea..sounds like the old stuff The water in the metal btls tastes funky to me, It is not spring water.. we brought Fiji water with us...and picked up other bottled spring water along the way,.

    Guess it depends on what you are looking for .... ..Royal is our back up cruise line.. esp the smaller ships.. food and service cannot compare. to X ..but it is better for shows and music and kids, High hopes for the X upgrades to M and S Class!

    The food in BLU on EDGE was outstanding as were our less frequent stops into the buffet, Tuscan and Cosmopolitan...EDGE cafe was really a nice addition! We had Classic alc as a perk. No one tried to upsell anything in person ( maybe because we were in BLU). There was a very soft sell at the spa...and quite a few robo calls/ messages about a health seminar at the gym and art auction events. Hope that translates to the other ships other than the robo calls..very annoying!

    We are still bitter about that but won't drink the stuff in the metal bottles anyhow,...it tasted very bad.. They have replaced theAQ Class packaged herbal tea mix ( just add water) with fresh brewed..much better !

    Secrets of the Edge

    Caymus Hope you feel better soon. We had very bad congestion last night of the 1/27 cruise as did our table neighbors in BLU. Then we had full blown coughs etc for about 4 days after we got off the ship...glad we were not suffering on board. ! BTW...never ever saw anyone using the washing trough outside the buffet...and no one was out there with hand sanitizer..whether it works or not,
