  1. Interesting that doesn't mention the refresh of the buffet.
  2. Thanks everyone. I think I feel better 😉 I do agree about the Retreat Sundeck being a step backwards instead of a step forwards. However, I'm looking forward to new soft goods and a refreshed feel. We were on the Edge 3 months after it launched and it had that "new car smell" which we enjoyed, despite all the controversial improvements. So if she's refreshed by our March cruise, we're good!
  3. OH. Good heavens, that's such a simple fix. How annoying. Thank you for the reassurance!
  4. But - the ship's web page still has the date as January. So......what's going on?
  5. When I go to the Celebrity site, and look at Silhouette deck plans, on the right above the plans are dates - one set of dates is 3/19 - 4/20, and the drop down option is 5/20 - 3/21. The drop down changes the plan to include things like the Retreat Sundeck instead of the Solstice Deck, just as an example. Please take a look and tell me I'm hallucinating! That wold be welcome news. If the date is indeed changed, that means we are dealing with, at the least, soft goods that are about to be replaced, among other things. I've worked in good hotels where pre-renovation the tiredness of furnishings is extreme. We were looking forward to a refreshed ship.
  6. Just looking at the deck plans and it appears Silhouette will now be "Revolutionized" between April and May 2020. We are cruising in March and the original schedule had her in dry dock in February. So we're really disappointed, as we thought we'd booked on a refreshed ship. Now it's likely everything will be ready to go into the recycling bin. This hasn't fully sunk in yet. Does anyone have information on this? So upset.
  7. Thank you - I had just emailed Woodwind when I saw your post! Let's see if they can accommodate my special kind of crazy, My husband is in after reading a few posts!
  8. Hi there - We're excited about this cruise to the ABCs plus Grand Cayman. I've been to some of these islands on land trips but this is the first time in a long time. We're actually delightful people but this is why we're difficult: 🤣 I'd like to snorkel at one of the stops but am really a fairly novice snorkeler, so guidance/instruction would be great - I've snorkeled on my own offshore and that's it. I'd love to learn more. I'm also not comfortable on long rides on small boats - I get seasick and although I wear the miraculous patch on cruises, haven't yet tested on small boats, so a shorter ride than longer would be great to start with. Husband says he won't snorkel so he'd need to enjoy the boat experience - he's not that hard to please but won't want to feel left out if he's not snorkeling. Definitely not looking for a party boat but refreshments are welcome! Also prefer no young kids (we've raised ours, thank you, older teens are cool) For another excursion, an uncrowded beach paradise would be great 🌴 (with at least some bathrooms) We usually do beaches but if there are key cultural sites to visit - like, very important to see - we'd like to know that We don't care about shopping unless it's something truly unique (i.e., special spices come to mind) Are there any outstanding resort for a day options on any of the ABCs? We're also doing Grand Cayman. Excited to plan this and appreciate your help! Posting on the BC threads too. Thank you!

  11. Hi - having a hard time finding details for the Silhouette. We'll be sailing shortly after the renovation - Celebrity's site is all just snazzy marketing materials. Any other suggestions for resources? Thanks!
  12. Yes, I believe VT is correct about the price - I don't remember from our cruise. BUT I will say that after my Pilates class on Silhouette I was soooo disappointed in the quality of the class vs my gyms at home. I'd rather pay for more meals or cocktails above the package limit! Just my opinion.
