  1. Just realized that our 2021 Singapore/Dubai cruise will be cancelled. Have not heard anything from our TA or Celebrity. Have an email to our TA now. Booked this cruise because Azamara chartered the sailing we had booked with them-same itinerary. Beginning to wonder if Singapore and Dubai is meant to be.
  2. What a unique and fun way to anticipate the cruise! Now I have to follow this for the next ten days, okay!
  3. I searched on Cruise Critic "Crystal Birthday Breakfast" unsuccessfully to try and obtain additional information and I also went to Crystal's website with no luck. Will someone provide additional information on this? Thank you in advance. (Hope this is not too off topic.)
  4. We are scheduled for our upcoming September cruise sailing out of Venice. We share the same birthday and will celebrate that night at the Stardust Club. Really looking forward to it!
  5. While on the Edge, we were only charged for what would have been an upgrade to the classic package when we were on the Retreat Sun Deck and we did not have any beverage package. I think it depends on the server. In the lounge, we were served whatever we requested. I believe the OP asked about types of liquors served, we requested and received Grey Goose vodka and Tanqueray gin.
  6. We stayed in 10202 which is right by the elevators on the Edge. We were never bothered by elevator noise or people noise. Enjoy!
  7. We used Celebrity Air and booked business class from Miami to Buenos Aries for $1,200 each. We separately booked air from NC to Miami for $144. When we looked at a total ticket to BA from NC it was several hundred dollars more. Research your options.
  8. Date of Cruise: April 28, 2019 Ship: Edge Cabin #: 10202 Deck #: 10 Cabin Category: S2 Sky Suite Cabin Location: Mid ship - close to aft elevators Bed Position: Facing ocean Balcony Type: Large - 2 chairs and lounge Balcony/Window Size: large Balcony/Window View/Obstruction: None Balcony Overhang?: Slight Magic Carpet Issues?: N/A Noise Issues?: Yes, during the day and night with barely rough seas a loud metal noise, sounded like two steel cables rubbing together. Took audio of it to Guest Relations. They said it was the way the ship was built and there was nothing to be done. Two nights without sleep due to this. Wind Issues?: No Connecting Cabin? Where Does it Connect?: N/A Suite Details: Very spacious, great bathroom, more than adequate storage. Advantages/Problems/Comments: Loved the room, hated the noise. Our neighbors and other suites in this area experienced the same issue. Would You Book It Again? no Photos or Photo Links:
  9. Thanks Keith, I just sent this to our friend who may be sailing with us in September. He is a huge Del Dotto fan. This may sway him!
  10. Just used this option for flights to South America in 2020. Our invoice stated there would be a $400 per person cancellation charge. However, Choice Air confirmed that if pricing decreased we could capture the savings. Did not ask about changing the flights.
  11. Thank you for this, just changed our birthday reservations from Prego to the Starlight Club. Did this on line with no problems!
  12. We sailed Sydney to Vancouver on the Solstice in 2017. The weather was wonderful all the way to Hawaii, cooler as we approached Canada. Dress for warm days, pleasant evenings. Probably our most favorite cruise!
  13. You will love Crystal. Their level of service is outstanding as is their food. They are our favorite cruise line; however, we sail Celebrity more frequently. It is so nice not to have to present a card or sign a chit. We are sailing Edge in April on a TA and booked a suite. Very interested to compare the Edge Retreat with Crystal. Sailing with Crystal on the Serenity in September doing a Med cruse.
  14. Our first Regent cruise, my husband and I had dinner with four ladies, one of whom was traveling alone because her husband had emergency surgery two weeks prior to sailing and insisted she come without him because they did not have travel insurance, he did not believe in it. That night after dinner my husband began experiencing "the elephant on his chest." A call to guest relations had the ship's doctor to our room and later a diagnosis of possible heart attack. Long story short, medical evacuation by the Coast Guard, medical evacuation by jet with a four person medical team from Turks/Caicos back to Ft. Lauderdale and a heart catheterization at the Cleveland Clinic only to discover he had a virus which had attacked his heart, much like viral pneumonia. Our health insurance paid everything considered health related. Cannot remember if they paid the ship's medical bill which was $6K; however, our travel insurance paid for everything else out of pocket. The 21 night cruise minus one night, all medical deductibles, incidentals at the hospital, airfare, etc. They called me at least four times per day with offers of help and sympathy. We were early fifties, perfect health with no pre-existing conditions. Our cost for this experience was about $110,000. We paid nothing extra. For us, the cost of a cruise or land tour includes travel insurance.
