  1. Having trouble finding roll call for April 5th Med cruise on "Jupiter." Thanks.
  2. You and me both!! We're on the Eclipse in October and the recent bad reviews have me wondering too. We have been on this ship once before and thoroughly enjoyed it. Even the specialty restaurants are getting negative reviews.....hope Celebrity isn't putting everything into the new Edge (which we did enjoy by the way) and shorting the other ships......
  3. Date of Cruise: 4-21-28, 2019 Ship: Edge Cabin #: 3191 Deck #: 3 Cabin Category: Not sure. Cabin Location: Just off aft elevator, very convenient Bed Position: By window Balcony Type: Balcony/Window Size: Balcony/Window View/Obstruction: Balcony Overhang?: Magic Carpet Issues?: Noise Issues?: None at all. Located under Casino, but never heard anything. Wind Issues?: Connecting Cabin? Where Does it Connect?: No Suite Details: Advantages/Problems/Comments: Loved the location. Didn't need elevator unless going up to deck 14. Would You Book It Again?: Absolutely.
  4. We were in cabin 3191 OV on Edge last month (deck 3 midship). Cabin under the casino. No noise at all. Casino has very thick carpeting. Just off the aft elevator, very convenient to everything. I will do a review.
  5. Saw the video on using the Sky Train. What is the concern about having luggage? We each have a rolling suitcase. Thanks.
  6. We're happy with OV. We were on Deck 3 just off the Aft elevators, so convenient to everything. Only used the elevators if we needed to get up to deck 14. Traveled with our kids (ha ha 57 years old) and had a great time. Got a fabulous price about 9 months out that included obc and drink pkg (on line). We had booked another cruise but changed to the Edge for about $200 more pp for the week. Very exciting to see the new ship. Loved the 4 dining rooms. The steak house was a disappointment as noise from the Grand Plaza was just too loud. I'm sure they'll fix that. Service throughout the ship was outstanding, lots of bartenders everywhere. Still love the S-class ships the best, but very glad we got to try the new ship.
  7. Is the Uber XL large enough for 4 adults and 4 suitcases (from Rennaissance Hotel on 17th to Port)?
  8. My passport is expiring soon. Does anyone know, hen you renew your passport do you have to go thru the personal interview with TSA again? I remember when I got my GE a couple years ago, they said to bring it back out to have them scan in the new passport, which means a special trip out to DFW again.
  9. I think the one on the right looks old and outdated next to the Edge cabin. Sailing on the Edge for our 60th April 21! Had a lot of apprehension when it first came out, but really looking forward to it now....sounds like they've picked up on many of the earlier suggestions (trivia, music, etc.). Son and dau-in-law joining us. All of us very excited!
  10. We are booked on the Reflection Jan 31st. Been checking the website often to see if there were any price drops. Yesterday and today Celebrity shows only OV and Inside cabins available. Doubtful they filled all the verandas/suites etc. in 2 days. Any ideas on what's going on for this cruise? Traveling with another couple and we already have air/hotel reservations.
  11. Agree with you. Why aren't they taking advantage of that beautiful white piano on the Edge? The Schooner Bar is a very popular entertainment spot and just makes folks happy walking by! We sail next month....come on Celebrity......get someone on board the EDGE to play the piano with songs we all know and love.
  12. Don't plan on going to Ft.San Lorenzo. We lived in the Canal Zone most of our lives and thought it would be fun to take a private tour out to the fort, which we hadn't been to in many years. Tour guide was wonderful (Suly from Roberto Whitaker's tours) but the road out there is horrible and, when you get there, no bathrooms. Wish we'd gone to Portobello, which was another tour offered, but really don't know how that one went. None of us were interested in traveling across the Isthmus to Panama City. The new locks are interesting and will probably be part of any tour you arrange on the Atlantic side. Have a great cruise!
  13. Hopefully FCSH was a one off. We love Murano but on our last cruise we took two other couples with us the first night (30% discount). I had the lobster (wonderful). They all had the chautebriand. No one complained during the meal but afterwards, they all said they were disappointed, including my husband who generally could eat there every night. All the other restaurants were great. Perhaps it was just because it was the first night.....who knows. We have reservations for the steak house on the Edge next month......but not on the first or last night! We've crossed paths with you Paul on both the Eclipse and the Equinox and always enjoy your reviews. You guys don't look for the negative but when something isn't right, you comment. Happy cruising!
