  1. Seems a crying shame that folks have to bring additional furnishings to fill the need for necessary items. When for the amount of $ spent on a cruise, you’d think you have everything you need!
  2. We were on the Equinox in February is a CS and the balcony actually had 2 loungers! One with a cushion and one like a mesh. And also a table where you could eat breakfast and a few chairs. It was heaven! Yes that balcony looks small with no room for a table. Unless I bring our own fold up and pull it out of my carryon like Mary Poppins lol!
  3. Thanks for posting this! That white thing that’s supposed to be a, what, coffee table? Looks like a cheap piece of junk. And are there only two chairs on the balcony? No loungers or table and chairs? Wow. But the room itself is nice I suppose.
  4. The last day of a cruise is always so bittersweet!! Enjoy til the last minute......Love the foodie pictures by the way!
  5. We were on Equinox in February and loved the Silent Disco! Never laughed so hard at each other! Good advice on the sunscreen too. The Caribbean sun can be silently brutal. But we found the cool towels and water very welcome! The crew did that at each port and it was fabulous!! Loving your daily reports!
  6. It’s really a shame that folks who spent so much money have to figure out how to redecorate rooms and balconies in order to utilize furniture! Those plastic milk crate seats are ridiculous! As are armless chairs and short hard couches! I cannot wait to sail Summit next February but I’m a little worried about what I’ve seen. Hopefully some realistic changes will be made by then!
  7. Do what we did as kids. Use Twizzlers as a straw. And then eat it when you’re done! Problem solved. No waste!
  8. Following along! DH and I were on our first Celebrity cruise on Equinox in February and loved it! Booked our second while onboard for Summit next February. I thoroughly understand howling winds and lake effect snow from Lake Erie! Ugh. Enjoy, relax and rejuvenate!
  9. So looking forward to sailing this ship but we have to wait til next February. Oh well! Cant wait to see some pictures you all will post, I’m sure!
  10. We were on Celebrity in a CS. Again no towels unless we asked.
  11. We have never had pool towels in our stateroom to take ashore. We always either ask our room steward or head up to the pool to get them ourselves.
  12. I second that idea! If you are not set on a suite you can get 2 connecting balconies probably for less $$. We have done that and the connecting door yields privacy but also togetherness if you want. However you do sacrifice some suite amenities.
  13. Yes I totally forgot the Baked Alaska tradition, with the accompanying international parade of waiters! I used to love that! Alas, no more. And forget about libraries, the oasis of calm and quiet. Celebrity is now getting rid of several of them. During the revolution. Sad indeed, to insert more inside rooms. Make more $$$$. Ugh.
  14. Like for example, Ice sculptures, carved fruits and foods at special buffets, towel animals? I imagine some of these cuts are simply due to the times we live in, financial factors and cutbacks. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with being "sustainable", everyone's favorite word. Waste, preserving the oceans? But I noted this on our last cruise on Celebrity. We had never been on Celebrity, so maybe they never had these things? I checked my last photo album, from RCL Allure, and yes there were the fancy carvings and sculptures, and towel animals. I am simply curious if anyone else has noticed this trend, and interested in your thoughts. Thanks, All!
