  1. Yes it was but it didn't make the place crowded. I would say that we never found them an issue at all.
  2. Overall we were very happy with all our surroundings in the suite.
  3. We were very lucky. We left the Silhouette on the 8th March. The following cruise had to return to Miami several times for health issues. We stayed in a hotel for 2 nights before coming home. As we were checking out of the hotel we met a person in the lift who asked us if our cruise had been cancelled too. He had been due on the Regal (it think) Princess which should have been in Fort Lauderdale that day . It wasn't. They wouldn't let it dock because two new crew members were showing Covid signs and the cruise was cancelled that morning. It turned out the crew members did not have the virus bu
  4. It seems only yesterday that we left the ship but Cornavirus has taken over the world and there always seemed too many other things needing done. I finally for a few minutes to upload these pictures. It looks like many of the changes in looks on the walls are some sort of almost plastic adhesive covering. I suspect the bathrooms and the dressing room have not been touched. While the sunbeds are comfortable, I would not like to use them without a towel between me and the bed as the covering is some sort of created plastic which is a bit tacky to the touch. On
  5. Thanks Libby. We are currently at our hotel waiting for our room. We don’t travel until Sunday.
  6. Chemmo it was certainly not what we were expecting but we didn’t make a big thing about it at the time we were happy our daughter made it on her own from Miami. We are very disappointed about it but decided not to make a big thing about it early on the cruise. We spoke with the Retreat concierge yesterday when he finally asked how it was when we boarded. He was shocked but whether the shock is enough to make a difference to check in is doubtful if the shoreside remains so poor. i have pictures of your room which I will upload over the next few days.
  7. We have the hdmi cables but had too many good friends on the cruise to spend the time in our cabin.
  8. This has changed on the Revolutionised Silhouette, where the system Has changed to be the same as the Edge but on both the Edge and the Silhouette there is an option on the TV menu to stream from your device although that may not give you 4K streaming. I have been on both ships over the past 3 weeks but gave yet to find the inclination to try it out.
  9. We boarded as you disembarked and our experience was by far the worst embarkation that we have ever experienced with Celebrity so I am not surprised at your experience. We left the Edge at Terminal 25 and were promised that there would be transport provided to cross the road to 21. As usual it didn’t appear. We walked the few hundred yards. We have been in a PH and were among the first at terminal 21. We were supposed to find a large sign outside the terminal saying priority boarding. It didn’t exist. The porter’s said to leave the luggage but I resisted for a spell but as mire and
  10. We do have the drink package for the cruise.
  11. You don’t need the credit card, just the express pass and your passport.
  12. You seem to forget that they put what looks like very comfortable seating and lounging areas on the two lawn areas at the sides of the chimney stacks which more than replaces the Solstice deck area or the area at the front of deck 15.
  13. I read a post moaning about the retreat sundeck last week about wind. It was equally windy on the Edge on Saturday but there were still some hardy souls out there. The difference is that the Edge deck was open where the Silhouette was closed. They do need to extend some of the wind breaks on the Silhouette. What is there just now is the same as on the old Solstice deck. These need to be extended so that there are overlaps in them to stop the wind rushing through. A little bit more screening and it will radically improve the deck.
  14. Been on the Retreat sun deck on the Edge last week and have just returned to our cabin from the Retreat sun deck on the Silhouette and have been charged for neither food nor drink. They take your cabin number but that is it. The Silhouette deck is less protected than the Edge from the wind caused by the movement of the ship but we have had drinks there earlier today, returned after applying Sun Screen for a light lunch (with more drinks). The food choices are the same as the Edge with the sole difference being that they use crisps rather than fries which is OK if it is perfectly st
