  1. It has been wonderful to read the reports of someone who loved their Edge experience as much as I did. Also, it has been gratifying and inspiring to read about your solo travels. Bravo!
  2. We were contacted a week before our 5nt Infinity cruise in December. This made things difficult because we were on the Edge at the time. Regardless, I responded the day before the cruise and things were as we requested when we arrived.
  3. Yes, it all went away. Not sure if it would work for everyone since there are a number of possible causes for the swelling, but it's worth trying.
  4. Yes, this comes from the aqua spa cafe. After a few days on Edge, my ankles were severely swollen. I tried the smoothie for a hangover remedy and it helped that but also took care of my ankle issue. I also liked the taste:).
  5. We did aqua on Millenium last year in July. We loved using the thermal suite to warm up on chilly days.
  6. Another little known suite benefit we enjoyed was having our butler set up nibbles for us to serve guests we were entertaining in our suite - including a party of 13 when we were in an edge villa. When we were invited to cocktails in a penthouse suite on infinity, the butler got our cocktail order in advance so it was waiting for us when we arrived in the suite. No charge for the food or drinks (although getting free bar service probably is reserved for the upper level suites - or at your butler's discretion). Also, it isn't just coffee that you can get delivered. We had butler bring us a detox smoothie every morning. We learned about the benefits of the smoothie from our butler on the Edge and we became believers when we tried it one morning after an indulgent night.
  7. I'm really enjoying your blog. I know how hard it is to keep up with a live blog because I did one in December but only got 4 days of posting in because of all the distractions. Congrats on spoiling yourself with a bracelet, I loved the prism style too. One note, if you paid over $800 (and it was not made in US with receipts to prove it) you will need to declare it on your customs form. In December, the onboard shops reported to US customs all of the purchases and passengers were pulled by customs officials as they were getting off the ship. The shops on the ship won't warn you about this. There was a thread by alishac in December on here about it.
  8. I know on my Edge cruise in December the minimum bids reported for Edge Villas were different and I think that reflected the price each of us paid for our original cabin.
  9. Also, the premium beverage package only covers drinks up to $15. If the drink is more than that you pay the difference plus 20% gratuity.
  10. The food in the rooftop garden was good, but not worth the upcharge IMO. I was in a suite that included specialty dining so we tried them all. Eden, Finecut, and Raw on 5 were outstanding and I would feel they were worth the extra money.
  11. Yay for you and the skydiving! I have to admit, when you were being sly about your Key West plans I thought you might be going to the clothing optional bar <g>.
  12. Thank you for the pics. It looks like it would be perfect for one person. I like that the bed is not just a single. One woman we talked to on the Edge was irate about not having any drawers in the room but it looks like the shelving would work just fine if it were me.
  13. We did this on the Millenium in July. We were able to pay for just the workshop without getting the glasses (although they offered the glasses at a "discount"). There was just one other couple doing the tasting with us so we got very personal attention and we really enjoyed the experience. It really is amazing how different the wines taste in different glasses.
  14. I can also attest to the amount of public open seating on deck 16. We had an Edge Villa with entrances onto deck 15 and 16. We often used the exit on deck 16 through the retreat because it was the easiest access to the smoking area between deck 14 and 15. I don't recall this area ever being very populated.
  15. I sailed on Edge the second week of December and Infinity the 3rd week and didn't notice any Christmas music. A few christmas but no accompanying sound.
