Mates,

May I have a reminder of what dates you’ve confirmed- if applicable-for Edge?

Celebrity has changed the ‘Inaugural’ to the left a week. While I booked the Inaugural ‘Inaugural’ , of 16DEC2018 back in March when she debuted on sale- and thus feel it emotionally still counts- X’s decision removes some of the allure of that booking.

So.. I’m going to either:
1. Keep what I have
2. Join one you are on for camaraderie’s sake
3. Switch to something entirely different

Thanks
~Bob

Thank you. I just looked at that one- Aqua Class $1,100 more than when we booked, given the same perks. Ty, but we will not be taking this one

Sorry it won’t work for you. The prices on these early cruises have really gone up. That was why we couldn’t change to Paul’s cruise. Plus I wanted to get on the Edge as soon as I could to share the review.

I wouldn’t mind an Oceanview to join either of you. Going to wait to see if I can get an Interline rate, but they may sell out before then.
I’m just too accustomed to our great rates here in Florida to pay so much for a 7 day cruise. Even to join my great friends.
