  1. In Sky 1 suite 10144 , the bed faces the ocean. Yes, your butler will unpack, or pack, your clothing if you request it. We have never asked our butlers to do this as we prefer to handle it ourselves. We loved the Edge, it is definitely “something new”, and hope you will enjoy it as much as we did. 😊
  2. No, it is not incredible. It's a well known fact that X's IT department is not run as efficiently as NASA. No need to get your knickers in a twist. 😊 Personally, I'm going to sit back, relax, and give them a couple of days to sort it out.
  3. MSC has announced plans to home port two of their ships in South Africa. I hope that X will follow suit and offer new itineraries to South Africa also. It would be nice to have new and different locations to visit. https://www.travelmole.com/news_feature.php?c=setreg&region=2&m_id=s~T_bnvs~&w_id=36574&news_id=2038883
  4. MSC has announced home porting two of their ships in South Africa. I hope that X will consider offering comparable cruises, it would be nice to have new cities and itineraries to explore. https://www.travelmole.com/news_feature.php?c=setreg&region=2&m_id=s~T_bnvs~&w_id=36574&news_id=2038883
  5. Or, it could be that perks are being offered on specific ships, and or itineraries.
  6. I liked it too, just not in the suite. 😁
  7. X is getting ready to unveil their next “new” sales promotion. 😉
  8. Here's an article regarding the cancellations. https://www.travelmole.com/news_feature.php?c=setreg&region=2&m_id=s~T_bnvs~&w_id=36530&news_id=2038677
  9. Who knows, that statement may become, “I need more Apex”. 😁
  10. Wish we could have picked more than 1 favorite ship. Love the Edge, but Reflection will always be our favorite too.
  11. That was not my experience on the Edge. I ordered Macallan whiskey from the Martini Bar. When the drink was delivered to me there were particles in it that shouldn’t have been there. I went up to the bartender and brought it to his attention. He was a little upset that he hadn’t noticed this when he poured my drink. He checked the open bottle and discovered that there was something else in there, immediately pulled up a new bottle from under the counter and opened it up in front of me.
  12. I also agree. I have received questionnaires from X in the past regarding new areas of interest and length of time desired for potential cruises. It seems that the answers I submitted ended up in a black hole somewhere as I'm still waiting to see anything new and exciting. And another vote from us for cruises to Africa. Preferably on S class or E class ships.
  13. I think there may be some truth to your suggestion that the consumption of Dubonnet may have contributed to good health and longevity when it comes to the royal family, but then it could be that they just have great genes. 😁
  14. Or if you’re in an upper suite, ask the concierge to stock some for you prior to boarding.
  15. Perhaps you're right. 😉 Quinine is good for you. 😊 Dubonnet was first sold in 1846 by Joseph Dubonnet, in response to a competition run by the French Government to find a way of persuading French Foreign Legionnaires in North Africa to drink quinine. ... Dubonnet is commonly mixed with lemonade or bitter lemon, and forms part of many cocktails.
  16. Nice to know that caviar may be on the menu in Murano. However, there is no Murano restaurant on the Edge. 😉
  17. X has already started eliminating single use plastic items. On board the Edge, water, which previously came in plastic bottles, is now in metal cans or glass bottles. Also, on the Edge inaugural when I asked about acquiring some balloons, I was told that there were none onboard.
  18. I can’t remember which ship we were on but a couple of years ago my Dh ordered the burger in Luminae. He couldn’t even swallow the first bite. There were similar complaints from other guests around us who had ordered the burgers. We spoke to the Maitre D’ who apologized and explained that X decided to bring different cuts of beef on board and have the galley crew grind it to make the “signature” Luminae burgers, rather than serving guests pre-prepared patties. Well apparently someone messed up and gristle ended up in the burgers, lots of it. I don't know what changed (perhaps better quality control) but we have always had great burgers in Luminae since that first fiasco.
  19. We've done many cruises over Halloween, and to tell the truth, I've never seen anyone “dressed up” (or down as you're referring to) in the dining room. Guests, as well as the staff, usually show up in the public areas after dinner in their “special attire”. Some of the best I’ve ever seen were the Officers on Reflection.
  20. And your response brightened MY day! 😁
  21. Too funny! You had me doing a double take at your word choice. 😁
  22. Thanks for adding the recycling plant (I forgot about that). The headphones were very nice to have in the areas which were quite noisy. I didn’t know there was a backstage/theater tour on the Edge, thanks for the tip.
