  1. Don't know the source of your information--it may be true for Celebrity--but you will note below that sister line Royal Caribbean is apparently still offering resident rates. I live nine miles south of Port Everglades/19 miles north of Port Miami; following is extracted from an e-mail I received from the Crown & Anchor Society yesterday morning.

  2. Following is a link to a recent thread relative to the same topic...
  3. The M-Class spreadsheet is posted as a "sticky thread" [designated by a "push pin" symbol] immediately above--at least at the moment--on the first page of the Celebrity Cruise Critic Forum. You will find a link to the summary spreadsheet--last compiled on 6 February; understandably there has been little activity since--via post #504 on the last page of the current thread. Cabins are identically numbered on Constellation, Infinity, Millennium, and Summit are identically numbered so a review relative to location will be identical from one M-Class ship to another. Millen
  4. You can contact Celebrity's Blue Chip Club directly... By calling 866-461-7170 or... By sending an email to bluechipclub@celebrity.com
  5. Sorry. for the duplication.. I don't have an Instagram account so I never clicked on the link... As it turns out, I just tried to access the photo via Instagram and was surprised that I was able to see the photo...
  6. Following is a link to the Cruise Critic thread which features a photo of the Apex pool sculpture. I believe this is what you are looking for...
  7. I've sailed Edge twice [once in the Caribbean; once for the April/May 2019 Transatlantic]; my recollection is the same as yours... On the Transatlantic, there were so many Elite, Elite +, and Zenith members aboard that the Happy Hour was hosted in both The Club and in a section of Eden... Both were still quite crowded so we chose to use the unlimited drinks [from the same list during the same hours]--loaded to the Sea Pass card--at, in our case, the blissfully quiet/speedy service Casino Bar... No canapes but the bartender became so accustomed to our visit [and our orders; our gl
  8. Lawn Club Grill--a specialty restaurant on Silhouette and Reflection--offers an oversized freshly baked chocolate chip cookie, served with ice cream, as an offering on the dessert menu...
  9. The area directly above The Sunset Bar/Oceanview [Deck 10] features five aft AquaClass cabins on Deck 11... The Rooftop Terrace above those cabins [Deck 12 Aft] provides commanding views [used it extensively--including at Hubbard Glacier (the ship will pivot)---while last in Alaska] and, yes, the area does provide generous outdoor seating and places to relax while taking in the views...
  10. Without wanting to come across as intrusive, you may or may not be aware that AquaClass staterooms all have a maximum occupancy of two guests...
  11. Following is a link to the comprehensive description of the Shareholder Benefit program and its administrative procedures as published on the Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. [parent company] website... https://www.rclinvestor.com/faqs/shareholder-benefit/https://www.rclinvestor.com/faqs/shareholder-benefit/
  12. Sadly, I read this morning that the ill Zaandam crew member--who was evacuated to a hospital upon docking at Port Everglades last Thursday--has passed away... https://www.local10.com/news/local/2020/04/10/hospitalized-zaandam-crew-member-dies-from-covid-19/
  13. Local news reports that rerouting of Coral Princess from Port Everglades to PortMiami was at the direction of the Coast Guard...
  14. Don;t know how I did it but apologies for the duplicate post... ----- Well, no wonder the "tunnel" comment--probably mine--was perplexing! All of the AquaClass cabins on Edge feature an Infinite Veranda... I booked my Edge trip to the Caribbean on the first day that Edge was open for reservations and called X to confirm the nature of the veranda--not that I was looking for an Infinite Veranda--before doing so... About three years later, guessing that Celebrity never has clarified that on their website but photos for AquaClass are clear... Similarly, I am

About three years later, guessing that Celebrity never has clarified that on their website but photos for AquaClass are clear... Similarly, I am confident that all--or the vast majority--of Concierge Class cabins [surely those that are loc
  16. Sorry I missed your earlier post... With nothing booked until late August, not spending a whole lot of time on Cruise Critic these days as I just can't deal--at least yet--with all the commotion and disruption associated with the world-wide, and generally unanticipated/underestimated. Covid-19 crisis... Though I know that I did not submit a cabin review, I did occupy Edge 10222 for a week in the Caribbean last March... That said, I believe that I may have long ago contributed to a post by vtcrusing relative to early deck plan inaccuracies--they may have since been corrected--in w
  17. Currently the beaches have been closed to address Spring Break crowding... Restaurants and bars are closing early for similar reason... At present Fort Lauderdale has closed its beaches through April 12, Miami has closed its beaches through March 19... Both will revisit those dates as necessary... In my community--about nine miles of south of Port Everglades--the beach has been closed until further notice...
  18. Don, I am truly sorry to learn that health issues may prevent you and your wife from sailing again in the future... Clearly cruising on Celebrity has brought you great enjoyment; I hope that circumstances improve so that you are able to continue to do so... Since I started cruising with Celebrity eleven years ago [first cruise in 22+ years, first ever with Celebrity and I haven't stopped; I've seen most of the world and made top loyalty in less than eight years], you have been a wealth of information to me and other Cruise Critic members... I've learned much about Cel
  19. Truly sorry for misinformation in my post above; too late to edit... After looking at several local news sources, I discovered that there are conflicts in the information I shared... Consensus is that the comments I posted above are only somewhat accurate--the link I cited is seemingly correct--in that,... I stated that the third problematic cruise terminal is 21, it is instead 19... Sky Princess used Terminal 19 recently... I stated that the subcontractor is likely used by other Carnival-affiliated lines and that I didn't think--but didn't know for certain--that the
  20. I live nine miles from Port Everglades; following is the backstory from a local perspective... https://www.sun-sentinel.com/coronavirus/fl-ne-coronovirus-metro-services-everglades-20200310-ocpt7i4jrzhdfkd5ilbp6sypte-story.html The cruise terminals cited as problematic--02 and 04--are primarily used by Carnival-affiliated lines including Princess [by far, highest guest count of the Carnival lines using Port Everglades] , Carnival itself [the vast majority of their Florida-based ships use Port Miami rather than Fort Lauderdale], and --on occasion [but recently]--Costa. H
  21. I've long appreciated--and have sometimes benefited from--your significant contributions to this forum and the nuance of your response was not lost on me; what you said is generally true... That said I'm not sure that the Original Poster--from my reading, a first time cruiser on any line--did so in this thread specifically related to the Deck 11 cabins on Millennium-Class ships... Her immediate response to your first post was to express concern--unnecessarily--as to her Deck 11 cabin in the context of personal smoke sensitivity... Don't know if you've sailed Edge or, if you have,
  22. I just looked at the Dailies from my last cruise on Millennium-Class [specifically, Infinity] during May/June 2018... "Smoking Areas: Deck 4 [Port Side, Midship Only] Poolside [Deck 10, Port Side] Mast Bar [Deck 11, Port Side]" The stateroom area on Deck 11 does not extend anywhere close to the full length of the Oceanview Café below; the Poolside smoking area [can't envision it but I believe it was a limited section near the Pool Bar; it certainly did not encompass the whole port side expanse of the pool] and Mast Bar areas are midship/far forward relative to
  23. I've occupied 1138 on Infinity twice for a total of seventeen nights... And I have 1138 booked on Summit--for an additional twelve nights--for a cruise in late August... To my mind, your sister's observations/recommendations are spot-on... Enjoy!
  24. I would not personally choose 1100 or 1101... While there is very little traffic on Deck 11 other than for those guests staying on Deck 11, 1100 and 1101 are both adjacent to exterior doors leading to/entering from open deck so as to add to the potential for a bit more traffic/related noise... Like jelayne , I'd keep 1119... Very convenient to--but far enough away from--the aft elevator lobby [which itself creates no noise save for the occasional passengers who are a bit too chatty in returning to their own stateroom. (which could happen anywhere)]... On balance, De
  25. Please see my post #55 above. Depending upon ship's position, helicopter evacuation is not always an option in the Caribbean.
