  1. We were in a suite- but twice went to the new MDR. They were beautiful and the food very good. If you get select- rotate it is like eating in a new specialty restaurant daily. We also tried a few specialty restaurants. Love Qsine le petite chef-a fun and very good dinner, and the steak house was also great- sit near a window if possible. Eden was horrible- Very disappointing- Avitar meets sesame street and food awful. Going on edge again next year, will skip Eden of course! Heard however, lunch was nice, but didn't try it. We also went upstairs to the rooftop garden. It was much to sunny, windy and hot so we passed. Too bad as we really love the lawn grill on the Silhouette and Reflection. Perhaps they will enclose it and make it airconditioned if people complain and do not use it. Went to view the edge elevator restaurant-forgot the name- but the menu wasn't appealing to my DH who likes "meat and potatoes" not seafood. I probably would have like it! Enjoyed Lumanie- but really for breakfast and lunch.
  2. I think they do allow- but save your back and bring a water bottle with you.
  3. The move up program is great for many. A win win- The cruise line fills empty rooms and gets additional revenue and the customer gets an opportunity to get a higher category of room for a wholesale price! Only downside is if you do not like the location of the cabin/suite- you are locked in.
  4. The Oceanview cabins are 175 square feet- the balcony 195 I would book the balcony. However, if you can handle a smaller cabin, and wait until close to the cruise to move up to a balcony do it. Do what you can afford. IMO best if cabins above and below-
  5. We enjoy the summit and used to take it to Bermuda every year.
  6. You have to do what works best for you! Just being on a nice ship, you will have a great time!
  7. Most expensive weeks of the year! I would book a balcony then wait for the move up program to upgrade- if available.
  8. Wow ! What ship and sailing date? New Years on the Edge? We have a Royal suite in a few weeks on the Equinox and payed much less then the cheapest sky suite you listed above. Is that a two week cruise?
  9. It depends on your priority. Perhaps moving to a balcony or window view would be more affordable- for a move to a suite on our cruise was less then $400 pp. But it was from a balcony to a suite. Again, we all decide what is important to us. I wouldn't be comfortable in an inside cabin. And depending upon the ship the size can vary.
  10. We will be in a Royal suite for the first time- is laundry and dry cleaning unlimited? Txs
  11. Besides have much more room in a suite, you typically get great perks. Luminae, which is so much better then blu, but if you want you can also dine in blu, a suite lounge and deck, priority boarding and disembarkation, suite lounge services drinks and has special functions. Typically, the cost isn't double AQ, but yes more- but you also get more. Some people might think paying additional for AQ isn't worth it- so to each his/her own.
  12. If you are elite plus, and traveling with another, you get 2 free bags of laundry pp each week. If not, you probably will get a discount so watch for it. We always do laundry, at least a couple of times per week. Just do not send any special or delicate items to the laundry. They also do dry cleaning if necessary. Not cheap, but around same price as home if not using a discount cleaners. We only wash swim suits by hand.
  13. It varies, depending upon the airport- but usually not before noon.
