  1. Here is the post from RC. They have cancelled all cruises through May 11, and Canada/NE till July 1. Hoping HAL follows soon as I have a Canada/NE booked for May.
  2. Yep, Love my Sleep Number. Actually mine is quite old and still going strong.
  3. Looking forward to your review. When I saw your posted pic from a couple of years ago, I remembered reading your reviews. It was helpful putting the name to the face, so to speak. Glad you are home and healthy. The Silhouette is my favorite S class ship.
  4. They must be reaching out to everyone. I have done 35 cruises, but only 3 with Princess, and the last one was 10 years ago adn still got the email.
  5. May be it's time to avoid the airport and rent a car and do a cross country trip back to California. Then, we can all follow your adventure along, since we won't have any live threads to follow for a while now.😀
  6. I cancelled a cruise last Friday as soon as the new policy was released. I noticed the refund for the port fees/taxes pending on my credit card today. I was told by the TA 7-10 days for the FCC will arrive, but who knows. Can the FCC be applied to an existing reservation?
  7. Received the text too - cruising March 8.
  8. I also sailed on the Edge in its early inaugural days. And to the OP, I've also sailed on Allure and Grandeur that you mentioned, plus other RC ships and even more Celebrity ships going all the way back to the Zenith days. As far as the Edge is concerned, it is really a personal preference and depends on how you cruise. For me, I do not like the Infinite Verandas, which I was in, and would not sail in one again unless it was in a cold weather itinerary (think Alaska or Baltics) where I would not use a balcony anyway. I much prefer a regular balcony as I love to spend time out there. If you are a person than doesn't really care about the balcony, the extra cabin space of the IV would serve you well. I really missed the Sky Lounge, and the other bars/lounges that the M & S Class Celebrity ships offer, and even the variety of other lounges that RC and other cruise lines offer. I do feel that if you are booked in a suite on the Edge class you will experience a totally different cruise than someone not in a suite since you have access to other areas. The Martini Bar just doesn't cut it IMO as it gets way too crowded, and I did find the seating in the Eden Lounge to be uncomfortable for the most part, and The Club Lounge atmosphere was not to my likely as well. I loved, loved the 4 MDR concept! And the theatre design in the round was great as well. I know, Celebrity has tweaked things since I was on the ship, thankfully. And, because of that, I have actually booked the APEX with some friends for Dec 2020, but in a Sunset Balcony. Willing to give it another try, but at least I will have a REAL balcony! We will see what happens The Second Time Around.
  9. Thanks for your review. Glad you enjoyed sailing on Celebrity.
  10. Looking forward to another live thread. One of my favorite X ships and itinerary as well. Enjoy!
  11. The IV's are also locked whenever they wash the windows, which X does on a regular basis. If you are not in your cabin at that time, you wouldn't have experienced them being locked. I was also on the Edge last December, and the IV's were locked several times.
  12. True about the Club being easier to monitor. But on Allure(the only Oasis class I've been on) , the Diamond Lounge had windows and a view. Totally different feel to the room than the Club IMO.
