  1. Eek. That's rough to deal with. She's so lucky to be with you guys, though!
  2. This is terrific; I'm really enjoying your style of writing. Thanks for taking the time to do it. And I wanted to say thank you for adopting an older dog. That's wonderful! All your babies are lovely.
  3. I can’t wait to read it! Thanks so much for the reply to my question. Can hardly wait! Oh, I’d love to try Blu, too! Great point about not interfering with the Aqua class folks. Thanks for the advice!
  4. I didn't think my small question was worthy of its own thread, so I thought I'd ask in this "suite life" thread and hope that @vtcruising or other Edge experts can help. I'm cruising on the Apex in April in a suite, and I'm wondering if it is possible for us to book a dinner in one of the MDRs? We are huge fans of Greek food, and the sample specialities menu at Cyprus looks right up our alley. But I'm not sure if we are able to take up that space in Cyprus that would otherwise be available to others. I see it in our cruise planner, but don't know if that's dispositive. Thanks!

(Yes/No/Usually) Usually. Generally no noise from above or below, but like any cabin on the ship, you can hear your neighbors. You can also hear the dinging of the elevator just outside the stateroom, which can be a bit irritating. BALCONY VIEW (Good, Great, Obstructed?) Full BALCONY SIZE (Standard, Oversized, Other) Large, with hot tub, lounger with foot rest, and table with two chairs WIND A PROBLEM? (Yes/No/Sometimes) No SOOT A PROBLEM? (Yes/No/Sometimes) No PROBLEMS/COMMENTS (Explain all Noise (including crew door issues), Wind and Soot Problems here, plus all comments and information regarding things like connecting or accessible cabins) No problems. Beautiful cabin. Separate living room with pull-out large couch and love seat, four-seat dining table, kitchenette with sink, separate WC (i.e., 1.5 baths). Gigantic TVs in both living room and bedroom. Bathroom is so large as to be almost wasted space, but lovely,. Double sinks. Very high step up into the tub, but with separate shower. Extreme dearth of electrical outlets, and no USB outlets. Lighting is also fairly poor. Tons and tons of storage space. PICTURES (Attach pictures in your review) DATE OF CRUISE AND "REVOLUTION" COMMENTS August 30, 2019 cruise.
  6. 12.5%! When you see Rikki, tell him Krista and Devin said we loved him (which I hope he will know anyway). ❤️
  7. Captain Alex seems to inspire a very happy crew and passengers! And he was absolutely incredible at the tricky 540-degree turn by Dawes Glacier. You will be in precisely the same cabin we are in right now, 1241. How funny! So yes, I think you will have Rikki. We will leave the cabin beautiful for you! I’d try to leave you a gift but it probably wouldn’t escape two turnovers before you. 🤣
  8. I have good news for you, @Redking! We dined at Silk Harvest last night, the first night it had been open on our cruise that started August 30. It had been closed all week partly in preparation for the changeover. We were informed that the next sailing (beginning tomorrow) they will be getting the training for LPC, and then as of the Sept. 13 sailing the changeover will have been complete, with LPC fully replacing Silk Harvest at that time.
  9. I have good news for you, with which I'll update the other thread (since others may be following the question there). Captain Alex is AMAZING! I'd never understood why people cared so much about who's on board...until now. Wish I could cruise with him all the time. Also, I hope you'll be lucky enough to have the same butler we have now - Rikki is incredible.
  10. I assume this is for your cruise on the Solstice since we've been chatting in another thread about LPC/Silk Harvest (I'm scheduled to dine there tonight and will see if I can get more info about the change, by the way). I'm in a Royal Suite on the Solstice right now and had a heckuva time getting any contact/response from the shoreside concierge, Melissa, whom I was told was in charge of us for the Solstice. I made a couple of calls and sent two emails before I got any response, and at that it was only one week before sailing! That said, once she did reply she was very on top of things and did a great job, so have no fear. I should also mention that she was going on vacation this week - to the Bahamas of all places so I hope she's doing OK. But it might be next week before you hear from her. You can also just call and talk to someone else, but I found that less useful than just waiting for her to get back to me, as it turned out.
  11. I'll be doing this next week, so wanted to add my thanks to those who have posted.
  12. I agree! It's an embarrassment of riches for us. I think it looks doubtful that it would be changed for your sailing, but maybe it will come through. As you said, no problem with Murano and Tuscan!
  13. Hate to keep posting about the same thing, but I received another update today. I noticed over the weekend that Silk Harvest had been added to my cruise planner, and sure enough the shoreside concierge called today and told me that it will NOT be switched over to LPC in time for our cruise. The information that she was given is that the Solstice will not be switched until after the Millenium has been, which has not yet happened. Something about equipment not coming in on time. In any case, will definitely be a little while, but I hope it will be switched for your sailing since I know you're looking forward to it.
