  1. My vote goes to Silhouette. Unlike her 3 predecessors, she has the Lawn Club Grille and the Porch restaurants. Also--and this is very particular to my family and I--the FV cabins (as true with Reflection) are much better furnished than the FVs found on Solstice, Equinox, and Eclipse. She is better than Reflection because Reflection has an extra deck of cabins (and hence more people). Reflection has an extra set of suites that steal a significant amount of port side space from the Sky Lounge (first photo). This also means that the Sky Observation Lounge has no port side view at all. Compare that to Silhouette's Sky Lounge (second photo). This difference may be temporary depending on what they do with Silhouette during her Revolution makeover. That is my opinion.
  2. Like your Captains Club status, your Blue Chip Club tier is printed onto your SeaPass card and on your Xpress Pass.
  3. Yes, it is automatic thru your SeaPass card. Pretty simple with the slot machines since you insert your SeaPass card. At the tables, you have to present your SeaPass card to the dealer to have your play rated.
  4. All I know is that it is very evil of Celebrity to put irresistible pictures of our kids on the ship's wall for us parents to see which then forces us to cave in and buy them!
  5. There have been a couple of occasions where we put our 30 pieces into two separate bags for our "free" laundry and we were not charged. I don''t know if it helped, but we explained it to our cabin steward who picked up the laundry and we marked the bags "Free bag 1 of 2" and "Free bag 2 of 2" or something like that.

    Here is a scan of the Captains Club Elite letter that was in our stateroom at the start of our Jan 2018 Solstice cruise. I remember that you were on our roll call for the cancelled Jan 31 Silhouette cruise. I am sorry that we will not meet! David
  7. @turquoisesea We were on Infinity for Dec 31 2016 which was a port day and an Evening Chic night.
  8. I am sorry to hear this. She was such a prolific and helpful contributor.
  9. @Grandmaanne7, hi! I hope you are doing well. I presume that you are organizing the slot pull or is that another thing that will be missing on your sailing?? David
  10. @TroubleT, Here are links to 3 Celebrity documents that you may find helpful: 1. Kids Program. Many of your Kids Club questions will be answered here. Be sure to read the information under Toddler Time For Children Under Age 3 2. Babysitting. Oddly enough, the flyer refers to In-Suite babysitting, but I am pretty sure what is outlined is true for passengers in all cabins, not just suites. 3. Tips for Choosing a Cabin. See information under Family Travel
  11. We were looking into booking a Solstice FV for Dec 2021 which is after her Revolution makeover. It turns out that this category has not been released for booking for probably the reasons that you outlined.
  12. GoPros are available on board as well.
