  1. Can't get into our Nov 20 Seashore booking through the website or the app.
  2. They each cover a handful of staterooms--not sure how many.
  3. When we were on Meraviglia, our butler insisted that he walk us to the Cirque show at the back of the ship. We really didn't think this was necessary, but he insisted. When we arrived at the back of the crowd waiting outside the doors to get in, he walked us right past the crowd, through the closed doors, and directly to our assigned seats before the doors opened. Same thing they do when getting on and off the ship in ports of call. Very nice touch!
  4. In the past, the macrons were delivered to each YC room one night during the cruise as part of the turn down service. You just need to let your butler know that you'd like some in your room on the evening of your anniversary. We celebrated our anniversary on the Meraviglia back in 2019. We only mentioned our anniversary in conversation with our butler at the beginning of the cruise, but he didn't forget. When we got back to the room after dinner on our anniversary, a surprise bottle of chilled champagne awaited and the entire room was decorated, including a mini laser light show that had the room illuminated with thousands of rotating sparkling lights. Although it was a little over the top, it surely was a very thoughtful gesture. Our butler and his assistant couldn't wait to see us the next morning to hear how their efforts were discovered.
  5. He was assigned to the MDR on Meraviglia when we sailed her in YC during Thanksgiving 2019. We went to find him on the first night just to say hello, and then my wife complained to the YC Maitre d' that Arthur should really be in YC where the guests know him and want to see him. Voila! The next day he was assigned to YC for at least the remainder of that cruise.
  6. We were on an MSC cruise in Belize when several passengers from our ship and from a Carnival ship were killed in a head-on collision when returning to port from a private excursion. It was not their driver's fault, but the van had no seatbelts. There was definitely a sadness onboard once the news spread--it was the evening before Thanksgiving. Our butler had to help remove everything from the stateroom of one of the families involved before we could set sail. He was really rattled.
  7. Ha! Someone on our cruise last month actually asked Captain Kate at her Q & A how many different styles of chairs were on the ship. She was specifically interested in finding out how she could get ahold of one in particular from Eden. Without missing a beat, Captain Kate replied, “Now that I know—478 different chairs.” Then she paused—“No, not really—I have no idea. Next question.”
  8. So glad you enjoyed it!!
  9. We ate dinner there on July 5. This was one of the finest meals we’ve eaten at sea in 19 cruises. Food was both beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. You can check out my review from the July 3 sailing for pics. Don’t cancel—you won’t miss the “show.”
  10. Here's the morning view and the evening view from our starboard YC suite on Divina in Feb 2020:
  11. We were on the July 3rd sailing and did the same three excursions you did (except we did Maho on our own). We, too, liked the Hilton in Nassau, but also found the food took forever. Luckily, we ordered right at noon (a pizza, some mozzarella sticks, and a sandwich). We finally ate a little after 1 PM. That was really the only negative thing about the place.
  12. Thanks. Perhaps we met at some point. We found everybody on board to be especially friendly. just curious, did you happen to encounter the elderly lady on the scooter who seemed to be alone? She was on our hall and was often seen wearing a bedazzled Elvis jacket. Unfortunately, she seemed to have dementia and should never have been alone. I had to help her find her room at one point because she was totally lost. My daughter encountered locked outside of her room in her underwear. Could not understand how this person could be on a cruise alone. Her room was a disaster when I let her in.
  13. There are no more "Edenists" for the time being (I think that's what they called them). The bartender in Eden said he heard they are looking at revamping that part of the Eden concept and that the entertainers might be back in a few months.
  14. Thanks--I didn't know that. I have the 11 (not the 11 Pro), so I'll have to look it up.
  15. What ship were you on where the butlers said “no?” That has never been our experience in YC!
  16. Don't forget you'll need masks if you plan to get off the ship. We had to wear them out in all three ports on our trip, but not at the beach. I know they are requiring them in Mexico for those on the Western Caribbean itinerary.
  17. Yes, masks were required the entire time we were in the terminal. As a matter of fact, we had to put them on before exiting the ship--they had staff by the exit making sure everyone was masked. During embarkation, we had to have the mask on before entering the terminal. When we stepped onto the ship, however, one of the first things anyone said to us was, "You can take off your mask!"
  18. Now, that sounds like a great ideal. If I could just figure out a way to get paid to take cruises….🤔
  19. I do miss the clarity of the Nikon pics when using the built in zoom lens. When I use the zoom on the iPhone, the pics look great on the phone and on Facebook, Cruise Critic, etc. They just are not the same when transferred to the big screen of my iMac. Oh well, way easier to just take the phone to the beach. That’s funny about the Seashore. We’ll be getting off as you are getting on. I’d rather be sailing your itinerary, but we had to book during the holiday week while we were off.
  20. I hope it’s awesome. I’ve added a copy of the current menu on Edge. You do not have to choose from just one column, but are free to pick either selection from each course.
  21. Not true. Your butler will bring you anything you want from the YC dining room. My son and his college roommate were onboard with us. They placed the order the night before and couldn’t quite decided what they wanted, so they ordered several breakfast items. They were embarrassed by how much food was delivered.
