  1. I hope you receive a call soon…with good news!
  2. Apparently not on this ship. Terry’s in a suite and he has Bigelow.
  3. I’m happy they’ve brought you dinner. Maybe they can drop off munchies for you also🙂 Have they given you any idea how long you’ll wait for the test result once you’ve seen the nurse? I’m getting ready to celebrate your negative test result😊
  4. I’m so sorry to see this. I hope you’ll test negative and return to enjoying your cruise. Please keep us posted. Fingers crossed!
  5. I can answer part of your question. Drambuie is not on the Classic package (but is on Premium package). Here’s a link to a comparison from the Celebrity web site: https://www.celebritycruises.com/content/dam/celebrity/pdf/05_07_SP_Beverage-Package-Flyer_051721.pdf
  6. Alan and I are seven weeks behind you. Can’t wait! We wish you and Iain a wonderful return to sea 😎😎 -Michelle
  7. Ahhhh Jim. You can’t imagine how I missed reading your reviews during the long, dark shutdown. Welcome back😊
  8. Celebrity seems to be running at about 50% capacity (or less) now, and I doubt that will change before 10/31. Millie's full capacity is around 2,000, so it's possible you'd be exposed to far fewer people on Millie than you would be on Encore. Just a thought. The most important thing is that you'll be together, at sea, relaxing, and she'll forget about her super stressful job for a while☺️
  9. I'm so happy to hear that you two will be able to cruise together this fall. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time, regardless of ship😊
  10. In an earlier post, @terrydtx reported that there were three cases (2 pax, 1 crew).
  11. They are great itineraries. I'm envious about the Baltic one. I'd love to do that one because it has several ports that would be new to me and it's on Apex. Mustn't be greedy, as I've already got a spring b2b booked on Edge😂 I hope you'll post a review. I've been to all the TA ports except Cadiz. I found both Lisbon and Bermuda especially enchanting.
  12. I love TAs, and I enjoyed my Baltic cruise so much that I'd consider booking another one. If I could choose only one, I'd go with the Baltic. We had a lovely time on ours, despite missing SPB due to high winds. I would have gone for Stockholm and Tallinn alone. You won't want to miss the sail in (also the sail away) through the Stockholm archipelago. We were fortunate enough to watch part of the long sail in from the "helipad deck", and we watched sail away from our balcony - fortified with a bottle of wine and a cheese & fruit plate😋 Of course, what I would really do is: keep both & book Air by Celebrity for both go on the first one and then move heaven and Earth to find a way to keep the second one😂 Whatever you decide, I hope you have a wonderful time!
  13. Here's another great review by someone who had a veranda cabin. This has many lovely photos of the ship. I know there are more recent reviews, but I had these bookmarked so it was easy to find them.These are making me want to book Millie once I'm aboard Edge😂
  14. @graphicguyI'm not sure exactly what you're looking for, but there have been some great reviews of Millennium since her "Revolution". I don't know if you typically book suites, but I know you were in SS on Edge so here's a link to a review by someone who had a SS:
  15. Both are beautiful in their own way, and I wouldn’t hesitate to sail on either of them again. The Rendezvous Lounge on the M class ships are my favorites for enjoying cocktails and music. Edge has more specialty restaurants. I haven’t seen the suites on M class so I can’t compare the ships in that regard.
  16. Thanks for the warning about the entree. It appears that we have similar taste in wines. I hope you’ll leave me a few glasses of the good ones. OK maybe more than a few😂
  17. Exactly. I’ve seen speculation and interpretation, but no official statement that fully vaccinated US travelers will still be allowed to travel to the EU.
  18. Great. This lets us know you may need an itinerary ending in July as most June itineraries wouldn’t have you aboard on your anniversary. I’d go with June 18th b2b with June 26th as @Turtles06suggested. Good luck.
  19. How lovely! Which day in June is your anniversary?
  20. Thanks very much for your review. You've made me wish we'd booked a cruise on Summit this fall! I really enjoyed having Sue as CD on our Baltic cruise in 2018, and I wish I'd heard her sing. I love steel drums so I'll hope to encounter Alx in my travels. Having had an Aqua cabin on deck 11, I'd agree with your assessment of the aft cabins on that deck. We were located about midway down that corridor, and we occasionally found the noise from the movies quite annoying. Thanks for the warning about the overly long shower curtain in the Sky Suites. Hopefully Celebrity will correct that issue, but I'll be prepared just in case. Maybe I'll tape up the hem with a few strips of duct tape😂 Most of all, I'm happy that you had safe travels and a delightful cruise😊
  21. Thanks so much for your live review. We've a few months to go before boarding Apex for the first time so I'm living vicariously through you and your DH😉 I hope you have a wonderful holiday!
  22. I certainly understand. I was like a little kid in a candy store when I boarded Edge for the first time😎 You may want to also check out this great Edge review by @graphicguy Also check out the lovely Edge review by @Ken the cruiser
  23. Yes. DH and I have done this many times. I’d use my CC discount to purchase a package, and he’d use his CC minutes. If he ran out of minutes, we’d take turns logging into my unlimited account. One caveat: I think Jim is correct in saying we can each use only our own CC minutes. BTW we can’t wait to book an Antarctica cruise. I hope you have a wonderful time!
  24. Booook the cruise. You know you want to book the cruise. Gazing into my crystal ball, I see you lounging on a beautiful ship, listening to the wake, and thinking up interesting ways to exercise your PALL🤣
