  1. Thanks so much for balanced reviews. We are sailing on the Edge in two weeks. I am going with open mind and want to enjoy a new experience myself. Honestly, life is good and if I’m on a ship ... can’t get better than that.
  2. to all my friends on cruise critic who’s have added so much joy to my travels. From travel planning advise, to meeting you on board and keeping up with posts — you have enriched my life.
  3. I booked my cruise in January with a big box agent and haven’t received a move up email. Is this because of who I used? I’d love to see what bids are being asked for. Thanks.
  4. We have sailed many times on Celebrity and there are a few must have dishes on the Reflection for me. The Onion Soup, which I believe is on all the ships, is always amazing. At Murano I love combining the Chateaubriand with the Lobster in Cream Sauce. A must have dessert at Tuscan Grill is thee Pistachio Marble Creme Brulee. On our upcoming cruise On the Edge we will be having dinner at the four main restaurants, along with Fine Cuts, Rooftop, and Eden. Do you have a “must have” I should know about. Thanks so much.
  5. Cruise Planner. Sometimes we forgot that there are lots of new celebrity cruisers. Welcome and enjoy your trip.
  6. We were there about two weeks ago and we had a wonderful time. The staff was welcoming and attentive, the food was fine and the water great. You need to remember this is in the middle of nowhere and low key. If you are looking for a place to chill, have a drink and enjoy the day in the water this is it. If you are looking for something upscale this is not for you. I think there were ten people on the whole beach!
  7. thank you and others for the positives. I’m going with an open mind and having so many positive things to look forward and explore. I love doing new things and so looking forward our Edge cruise.
  8. Over the years I’ve learned so many wonderful things from others here on CruiseCritic. We will be on the Edge in January and was wondering if you found a special place you liked, food to try, or any tidbits. Please keep positive. I’ve heard all about the negatives but would love to hear about things you surprised about and enjoyed. Thanks so much.
  9. I’m going to have an open mind for new experiences and know that any day on the high seas is a good one for me. I’ll check back in after our cruise. I’m generally a half-full type of gal.
  10. Great to hear. Wasn’t sure if was just continental. On the Reflection room service breakfast was great.
  11. Does anyone know what the fee is for the week? Thank you.
  12. We just got off the Reflection ... it was 30 items even if in 3 bags. Just mark 1 of 3 etc. We had been on land vacation first. It was great. Second day we went off 30 items and later in the week 30 more. It was a lifesaver.
  13. Does anyone know if you can order omelets by room service on Edge? We will be in a CC cabin.
  14. We were on the beautiful Reflection for 24 days in November and my husband heard all about the Edge. I always had told him I wasn’t interested. Well, guess what, he was. So just booked a January cruise on the Edge and will go with an open mind. Any tips I should know.
  15. Do they offer dining packages in the Edge and are they the same price as other cruises? Thank so much.
  16. We’ve been lucky enough to be on the Reflection for 20+ days. That’s the good news ... the bad news in my husband is now intrigued by the Edge. He rarely suggests something he’d like to try so I’m definitely game. I’ve never looked into it before because I like my balcony. Today I priced an Eastern Caribbean on 1/12 (we will be in Florida so no extra travel costs) for a concierge (same as E2). Leaving Future Cruises I checked and it seems there are over 50 Concierge Cabins available. Does that seem possible or am I reading it wrong. If so I’m thinking I’ll wait for the prices
  17. You absolutely should get the B2B discount. There are no excuses and doesn’t matter what promos or perks you have. You also should always have the Celebrity invoice. My travel agent sends me an updated invoice from Celebrity after every change. It’s assisted me in many circumstances.
  18. I would say don’t worry ... you are months out from the cruise and likelihood of your request moving off wait list is high also if you are using a travel agent they should call and ask to have you move — my agent has done that. I would keep checking and stay on this especially the week before and week after final payment when many change plans. I’m sure you have a wonderful cruise — I’m on the Reflection now and loving life.
  19. I was going to let this go until we came back to our cabin at 9:15 pm and he was in the cabin. We did talk to someone and said he was keeping the cabin well but the timing was so strange. We had told him we’d be out if the cabin by 8:15 am and don’t return until noon and that we leave about 7 and come back at 9 or so. I think what upset me was all the excuses ... not on till 11 which I know isn’t possible and the list goes on. Now we’ll see what happens. We are on a B2B and changing cabins. We’ll see. I respect the hard work but this was affecting our cruise.
  20. I just spoke with him and he said on sea days he doesn’t start until 11. I asked him to come first thing from now on. He tries hard but seems a little frazzled ... it hasn’t impacted our wonderful cruise so going to go with the flow.
  21. We are on a transatlantic at the moment in Aqua class. Our cabin steward doesn’t make up the cabin till after 3:00 pm. I don’t remember the timing from past cruises. The same in the evening - we come back after dinner and not ready for night. Our steward says he is in training for US cruises and timing is off. Wondering if this is the normal timing. What should we expect?
