  1. Generally speaking the step up into the bathroom is about 4 1/2 inches. There are not true grab bars and not fold down chair. To be honest, if he is a quad... I would wait until you can find a cruise with an accessible cabin. Also I suspect that the newer ships are generally better for people with mobility issues.... regular cabins seem to be a bit larger... generally speaking. you might post on FB "Royal Caribbean Accesible cruising" group page... while not Celebrity... there are a lot of people with experience on different ships.
  2. Perhaps someone familiar with m class ships can confirm.... but I am under the impression that the bed is by the bathroom on the veranda cabins... and not alternating like S class ships. So this means that there is very little room to get around inside the cabin if in a chair or scooter. Not sure how OV or inside cabins work. We had thought of going on m class but DH needs a scooter and it was unclear to us... where we would keep it... since it seemed clear it would . not fit in the cabin...oh it would get in the door ... but then blocked the bathroom....
  3. I just noticed that the post about it being cancelled was June of 2017..... As a side note, my friend did not hear back from Atlantis for the longest time and finally was able to officially book... I believe it was last December or early January... I was thinking that perhaps Celebrity wanted to keep it themselves because they could likely get higher fees than what they offered to Atlantis. My friends paid $2000/pp about what we paid... for a C2 cabin... as I recall. I have noticed a drop off in threads about Edge... perhaps people are all talked out about the ship.
  4. It was chartered some time ago... a friend told me about it last spring and they had expressed interest months earlier. I don't believe the 17th sailing was cancelled... I looked for it last year and noticed it was not on Celebrities list of available cruises....
  5. I am under the impression that the veranda cabins on Summit all have the bed by bath and that they are smaller... this is why I ask the question. I know that they don't like them/forbid them to be parked in hallway... which makes sense. But I would hate to order a scooter and find that they have not delivered it because it will not fit in the cabin. Gerelmx, did it look like the space you were talking about was designated for scooters? Or were people just leaving them there because there was no place in cabin?
  6. I am wondering if anyone knows if a scooter that is 22" wide and about 45" long will fit into a typical veranda cabin on the M class ships. From what I see it appears all of these cabins have the bed by the bath vs other ships which alternate bed by bath and bed by veranda. Thinking of taking a cruise on Summit post 'revolution', but won't if scooters are an issue in the cabin. And I do not want a handicap cabin since the bathroom is not the issue. Thanks
  7. I believe it is an Atlantis charter... a friend of mine is on this cruise.
  8. I did not see anything like this onboard. I think they hope you will use the app... which has a deck plan but no profile like the one you are talking about. I am not one who generally uses my phone while on board... kinda the reason to cruise... to be unplugged. Edge seemed to be designed for people who sit at the table and text each other. In the beginning even trivia was played on the phone... I believe they have gone back to old school paper and pencil.
  9. Given that they started building the ship the moment Edge launched... along with how long and complicated it is to design a ship with all the plans for wiring and plumbing and the need to have materials ready to avoid delays... I wonder what changes there could possibly be other than tweaks to public areas. They had not had anyone on Edge yet when they started building and much of orders for materials were likely already made before Edge launched. So doubtful the IV cabins will be much different in terms of basic design than Edge... Oh colors will be different... but the size of the IV 'veranda' likely to be the same... They can also tweak the MC to make it less windy and perhaps add some clear wind screens on the RTG as well... and perhaps some clear glass walls up on deck 5 might make dinning a touch quieter... but I can't see major changes until they start the next ship.
  10. Even if you forget to contact special needs.. the cabin attendant can get if for you.
  11. COMFORT SUITES FORT LAUDERDALE AIRPORT & CRUISE PORT Last year we tried Comfort suites (see link). The hotel had only been open a few months. It is near the airport and they have a free shuttle from the airport and a paid shuttle to the port... which is very close. Next door to the hotel there was a nice sea food restaurant that over looked a marina. Also the price was reasonable (at the time) compared to others... probably because it was new. I would stay there again.
  12. Yes there is one by the bed! No longer necessary to string an extension cord across the room. There are also 2 USB ports there.. so you can plug in your phone at night. Nice improvement
  13. We are Diamond on Royal... not Diamond+.... on Celebrity we are Elite
  14. Never noticed this before... we always had a spare roll. But the ships toilet paper is so soft and thick 🙂 ... maybe that is why someone might steal it.... Perhaps people who have their own boat need to stockup on marine grade paper. LOL
  15. The Departure area is on deck 2 on the starboard side... I did not see a way of getting off the ship on . the port side.. when using the deck 2 departure area... so unlike other ships, I believe Edge will always pull into the pier with the starboard side on the pier. So depending upon the way the port is laid out... you may be facing another ship...(if one is in port). I think you will have a higher likelihood of seeing more than another ship if you are on the portside.
