  1. Question for the group but more so for the US citizens: We are on the August 14th APEX sailing and received our call from Celebrity today asking if we were vaccinated, which caused our wheels to begin turning. Scenario: You fly all the way to ATH and discover you are positive when checked at the port or develop symptoms during the cruise and are tested positive or before disembarkation you discover that you are positive. What do you do? Did you think of these situations before leaving for the cruise? We took a cruise on the edge July 10th and did not real
  2. Going on Celebrity Apex in a couple of weeks and forgot about purchasing Euro and Croatian kuna. Last night I remember that I needed to do this, but found Travelex is shut down and many other agencies that deal with the purchase of foreign currency are also closed or no longer mailing currency to the home. Has anyone from the US recently purchased foreign currency and how was it done? Thanks for suggestions
  3. On July 10th Edge cruise. No issues getting a taxi from airport to the hotel, hotel to the cruise terminal and then the cruise terminal to the airport. Only concern was that none of the drivers wore a mask and kept windows up.
  4. 1980 - that is a long time and provides an excellent reason to sigh
  5. Last week on the Edge, after each meal on Thursday and Friday we received the complimentary five minute talk about completing a survey and practically begging for a 10 on each question. The crew does outstanding job and in reality, it would have to be really terrible service or meal quality to give a score less than the maximum. Just found it to be over the top and in some ways, quite aggravating. JMHO
  6. Email? She called me on my cell and I had to tell her, look I’m on vacation so I don’t have time for small talk. I’ll catch up with you after the cruise. Next thing I know my cabin changed from iconic suite to inside cabin below the water line. Oh well I’m still in the cruise lol
  7. I would recommend not participating in the silent disco. Just an opinion but with Delta running around these days, unsure if it is the best idea to be face to face with many strangers on the dance floor during this event. Now, viewing it I agree can be fun.
  8. If you arrive at your designated time, the cruise ship will not leave without you. Can always call Celebrity and ask the question if there is a burning desire to board earlier or be identified as a priority passenger
  9. Yes those were the officers I saw also. Had not thought they were there to oversee the bar entertainment we went down those stairs also behind the martini bar into no man’s land lol
  10. I called Celebrity Cruises to inquire about any itinerary changes for August 14th. She placed me on hold and came back to tell me we had dropped the two Israel ports and added Mykonos and Cyprus. I told her, yes I knew about these changes and she said, no these just changed a few hours ago. I said, okay the current APEX cruise is going to Croatia and dropped Cyprus. She said no, the current itinerary has not changed for the July 17th APEX sailing. I told her thank you, but I will get my information from Cruise Critic. 😁
  11. Hello Can you provide the current itinerary since it was changed from your original? I have guides contacting me asking if my itinerary has changed but even after contacting Celebrity I am not aware of a new itinerary for August 14th........TIA
  12. On July 10th sailing the suite guests entered in the glass door to the left of the standing in line group Our time was 2:00pm, we arrived at 1:50pm and were in our cabin at 2:10pm. We were lead to the left by the baggage handler.
  13. Just got off Edge in a Celebrity Suite. I only shower and even then my feet were tight at the bottom of the tub. The tub is deep and narrow. Not sure how a 20 year old much less 90 year old could climb in and out
  14. graphicguy --- what is your take on officers standing watch on the 2nd and 3rd levels above the Martini Bar in the evenings? When we pass this area in the evenings we notice 1-2 officers standing near the back areas by the staircases looking down into the Martini Bar.
  15. I will post a review when we get home with my positives and negatives, but wanted to post this one negative here: The chairs in the dining venues are terrible. Every chair we have encountered has been HEAVY and difficult to move back and forward to the table. It is compounded that the dining venues have carpeted floors making it even more difficult to move chairs. Now, towards the end of this cruise we find ourselves laughing at our exhaustion before the meal just from trying to maneuver the dining chairs. 😀 For the second time, I don't get a rocking chair in the middle of the
