  1. After sailing EDGE ....... I can’t help but be reminded when Coca Cola “tinkered” with the original recipe in 1985, likely without adequate consideration and input from their most loyal customer base. As I recall, that didn’t turn out so well. 🤔
  2. My wife is the “packing queen” and loves the soft sided cubes! Wally World has a good selection reasonably priced.
  3. Mike, I am so sorry for your loss! We met you and Carol on the Solstice in March 2009. We so enjoyed your company and reading your website of detailed cruise reviews! May God comfort you and your family during this most difficult time. Prayers 🙏🏻 for comfort and strength.
  4. WeJust sailed EDGE last week. Was told by crew member that total passenger count for our sailing was about 2,300. 🤔 If that’s accurate .... do the math. How many empty cabins? Loved the ship. Beautiful ship! Food incredible. Service excellent. You can tell staff is overworked. Our cabin steward was not permitted to tell us how many cabins she was responsible to service. 🤔 Merchandise shop ..... pair of swim trunks $345 ...... dress shirt $225 ...... EDGE beach towel $95. Literally no one in high end shops. Food in EDEN during breakfast and lunch ...... excellent. EDEN “show” at night ....... the weirdest, teetering on satanic, performance I’ve ever witnessed at sea. Passengers walking out shaking their heads in disbelief. Oceanview Cafe excellent venue, food and service very good! Embarkation and debarkation were the quickest most efficient movement of people. Facial recognition is incredible. Almost equaled Disney crowd management. My opinions only. Remember ...... opinions are like noses 👃🏼. Everybody has at least one!

  7. We disembarked EDGE yesterday. Cruised with friends that had a 9:00am flight to California. (Are you crazy?!?) 😂 Guest relations told them to be at EDEN by 6:45am. They were first in line to walk off about 7:15am. Breezed thru Customs (facial recognition is amazing) and grabbed a cab to FLL. Boarded their flight at 8:10am. Certainly wouldn’t recommend this, but can be done.
  8. Just returned on Sunday. Tried all 4. All very good. We especially liked the service at Tuscan, so changed our table reservation for 6 for remainder of cruise to Tuscan with no problem. Highly recommend 2 lady servers at Tuscan. Fahrije and Rafaela. They're almost wonderful! 😂
  9. Considering this excursion. Interested if anyone has done it, and what was your experience? Thanks in advance!
  10. You can build some folks a solid gold fence, with diamond studded posts, and they’ll still complain because it’s not high enough to suit them. 😳
  11. I guess this qualifies as a secret. Just returned from AAA Travel Expo in Columbus, OH. Had discussion at Celebrity booth with their representative. Shared that we are sailing EDGE soon, and don’t believe every negative opinion we see online. Told the rep we believe opinions are subjective and that we’re blessed to enjoy cruising and will be sailing with open minds. Rep acknowledged X is acutely aware of some issues, have addressed some, and that more signicant changes are coming very soon. Told me associates were given no specific timeline or details about what areas of the ship or services may be affected. Assured me that X is listening and committed to “ironing out the wrinkles”. Rep sailed EDGE in December and encouraged us to be sure and try the incredible breakfast and lunch selections served at EDEN.
  12. Infinite Veranda. And, you’re not stupid Piper. Both forms of “IV” can make you feel better! 😬
  13. Spif, thank you for posting what I was thinking. Oftentimes we may forget that we have so much ...... and appreciate it too little. Sent from my iPad using Forums
