  1. Really enjoying your posts Jim. I too loved Eden during the day, such a peaceful area. Be sure to try Eden Cafe for lunch - the potato salad there was one of my favorites!
  2. I am absolutely in love with the Edge and can't wait to cruise on her again, but if you've only done one other cruise (Disney) a long time ago you're not going to know the difference. The Solstice class ships (including Equinox) are all fabulous and they are what sold us on Celebrity. I would go for the Equinox and the balcony - you will love it. For me having a balcony is worth it's weight in GOLD. Then you can save up and do the Edge a few years from now. I think the food is great on all Celebrity ships. But I would also save a bit of money and don't waste it on Concierge - the only t
  3. They were used for our Edge cruise in June 2019. And I believe I read they were used the few weeks after that as well. Perhaps they are being used more regularly now?
  4. Thanks for sharing; you gave me some ideas if we ever do a similar itinerary again. Glad you enjoyed the Edge as much as we did! 🙂
  5. Thanks! Enjoy your cruise, you will have plenty of time to plan which is good! 🙂
  6. There are spots in the El Raval neighborhood than can be a little sketchy at night. We did not experience this as long as we stuck with the main route from Las Ramblas to our hotel (less than 5 minutes). But I had researched quite a bit before our trip and we were careful to not roam around too much at night and risk getting lost. Barcelona (especially the main Las Ramblas drag) has often been referred to the as "pickpocketing capital of the world", making it extremely important to be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to anyone invading your space - for whatever reason
  7. Thanks for the kind words. Yes, the HOHO #1 stop (Placa de Catalunya) is a stop for both the red and blue lines and was an easy 10 minute walk from the hotel.
  8. Another vote for Casa Camper. We stayed there in June of this year and loved it. Convenient location, free full breakfast (not just continental), free beverages and snacks throughout the day. I don't remember free beer and wine but I could of just missed it. There's an honesty bar on the top floor and a nice rooftop terrace as well. They also provide you with a complimentary portable wi-fi hotspot to carry around which really came in handy for us. Keep in mind the street is accessible by car, but only taxis or cars with specific transport permits to my knowledge. Lots of pictures in my
  9. Thanks! I'm so happy this was helpful and entertaining to come! These types of reviews are what keep me over while waiting for my next cruise 🙂
  10. This will be my trip review from our Celebrity Edge cruise from 6/22/19 to 6/29/19. I have never posted any kind of review before, so please be easy on me as I may skip around too much or skip over other items unintentionally. I took over 2,500 pictures on this trip so it’s taken quite a while for me to sort through them. I’m also a little later starting this than I hoped because I’ve been sick. I think I picked up some kind of virus on the plane home so I got sick 4 days after getting back and spent close to 4 weeks fighting an upper respiratory viral infection. Does anyone else get sick
