  1. I’m booked on the Enchanted Princess on Nov 28......I wonder if she will be completed and brought to the Caribbean sooner or be delayed The Sky supposedly is crossing the pond headed for Rotterdam. Will she turn around and head to the the Caribbean for fall since her summer schedule is cancelled? I cant imagine the mess in the Princess headquarters. Then there are the crew members that went home...will they come back to work? Without sufficient staffing I could see ships mothballed. But these things are insignificant compared to those losing their lives, losing their loved ones and businesses. Let’s all hope for the best.
  2. I was booked on the maiden voyage and didn’t make it...a big mistake on my part. Now I’m looking for a special trip in Sept 2022. Although it’s way off the Queen is one of my options along with a river cruise on the Rhine or maybe something land based. i would appreciate feedback on the Queen....and as I will be traveling alone would a crossing be worth the time expense and effort considering the flying involved. Seevice, dining entertainment? Thoughts and comments please. Thank you in advance.
  3. You are smart. I let emotion override logic in booking. I was interested in only one specific sailing date and thought once the bookings for Europeans started I could miss out. With Scarlets sailings only short voyages cruisers on the other side of the pond would wait for week long cruises. So I will hang in there and see how the product does overseas where the passengers are of an International mix. Time will tell.
  4. I’m curious as to what changes might be made to the operation of the Valiant Lady... from lessons learned. It’s too late to change the physical layout of the ship such as the pool but other things maybe doable. Im on a Sept sailing on Scarlet, and jumped the gun booking a 2021 sailing on the Valiant Lady. I wonder if once and done will result in forfeiting my 2021 deposit. I’m excitedly waiting to experience everything....can pre judge.
  5. I wonder what lessons learned will be incorporated. Into the Valiant Lady? And will the ships operation be changed In anyway in Europe with potentially fewer Americans.
  6. Seeing more and more of the ships interior, it truly is different. Although not my style of decor, how it works will be the big question. All the designs mean nothing without service.... good service. So I’m excited, a new cruise line, a new cruise ship and passengers that are willing to try something new. Let the fun and games begin 😜😝🤪😎
  7. As far as I know the lights are normally spots either just below the promenade deck or just below the life boats. Illumination provides an added safety factor in emergencies and an additional aid is spotting passengers going overboard being spotted on cameras. The only cruise ship I know of with underwater lights are some of the new Ponant vessels with windows in the hull for viewing sea life. I think they call it the whales eye.... but I could have that name wrong.
  8. I love the comment above.... butter my butt and call me a biscuit!🤪 im more fry my butt, call me bacon! The closer I get to sailing Virgin the more curious I get. I will celebrate my 68th birthday during the Sept 13th cruise so young Im not. pretty I’m not. Fun you bet your buttered bottom. I’m even taking a chance on the Valiant Lady as I have booked the following year to celebrate my 69th. So maybe Virgin will be an annual birthday event providing I survive Scarlet Lady. I’m a morning person and gym person so late nights won’t be part of my routine. Unless all the pretty people are dancing scantily clad.... then Ill get me a Bottle of champagne and watch the festivities. 😈👹🤓🤪😝 let the games begin. hey bostonfred....pack the disco clothes...white shoes matching belt and ruffled tux shirt. Have wife in stacked heels, hose with seams in the back and something strapless.Teach the young How it’s really done. We seasoned cruisers invented it! 70..... it was a good year 👹
  9. I just booked a cruise on the Apex for late 2021. For those that have sailed on the Edge.......what were the good and not so good aspects of the ship? its been a while since I have sailed Celebrity.... but after booking the Vacaya cruise on the Summit for 2021, I thought I should try a new build. In the meantime it’s the new Princessships Sky and Enchanted. So I’d appreciate thoughts on the Edge to paint a picture of what to expect on Apex. Thanks in advance. Tom
  10. Bon voyage! I’ll be on her sailing March 21.......don’t tire the crew out too much 😜
  11. Pictures of the ships interior are slowly being posted on the Internet. Definitely different and colorful. I have to admit I’m getting more excited. It’s funny the ship makes me think of an Austin Powers movie set. Maybe I’ll get a T-shirt that says... oh behave 😈
  12. Yes Peter. Last name starts with V. Can’t find him on Facebook anymore.
  13. Peter, do you remember a guy from the Hawaii cruise...Ray from Washington.....I’ll leave out his last name.
  14. I’m booked... anxious to see old RSVP friends. The Summit is a bad luck ship for me having sailed on her twice before. Hoping the third time is a charm. i am pleased the embarkation is Puerto Rico.... a nice change. see ya on board.
