  1. Thank you scottca075. The one time I sailed the QE2 I booked a Queens grill cabin to”do it right”. But that was years ago. To book a grill cabin now as a solo would put the price into Seabourn realm. I’m not sure the Queen would out do Seabourn. If I book the QM2... I’ll try to get a solo outside on deck three....but they seem to sell out immediately when reservations open for a crossing. So Ill have to wait till summer 2022 sailings open for booking. Thank you for your response.
  2. I would like to know what people think of these cabins up forward overlooking the bow I booked S101 on the Sky last March....cruise cancelled. Book the same Cat cabin s103 on the Enchanted for this Nov....cruise cancelled. So today I booked S101 on the Sky for Jan 2022. any thoughts on these cabins with the floor to ceiling windows would be appreciated.
  3. Thank you for all the responses. I’m going to consider a crossing and think I will do a westerly crossing. That way I will have a short flight home from New York. I’d also like to visit the maritime museum in Southampton the day before boarding. id like to book one of those new solo outside cabins but it seems they get booked way in advance......going to look at Sept 2022 for my birthday. Thanks again.
  4. TRUe...perhaps em want to incorporate some change they made on the Valiant Zlady. If you learn of any changes please post. Thanks in advance.
  5. Thanks for the info Biker 19. Returning to Europe makes sense at this point in time. With the pandemic slowing in Europe compared to the US, cruising could start up in the Mediterranean sooner. With Virgin starting off with shorter cruises they might find passengers.much sooner than here. second....having the ship in Europe might make returning crew easier than having to fly them to Miami when they start up. third...dock fees in Italy might be cheaper than Florida. Fourth...Virgin won’t be faced with our CDC who could continue issuing no sail orders. I wish Virgin all the best.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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 😜😝🤪😎
  12. 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.
  13. 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 👹
  14. 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
