  1. As far as I know the lights are normally spots either just below the promenade deck or just below the life boats. Illumination provides an added safety factor in emergencies and an additional aid is spotting passengers going overboard being spotted on cameras. The only cruise ship I know of with underwater lights are some of the new Ponant vessels with windows in the hull for viewing sea life. I think they call it the whales eye.... but I could have that name wrong.
  2. I love the comment above.... butter my butt and call me a biscuit!🤪 im more fry my butt, call me bacon! The closer I get to sailing Virgin the more curious I get. I will celebrate my 68th birthday during the Sept 13th cruise so young Im not. pretty I’m not. Fun you bet your buttered bottom. I’m even taking a chance on the Valiant Lady as I have booked the following year to celebrate my 69th. So maybe Virgin will be an annual birthday event providing I survive Scarlet Lady. I’m a morning person and gym person so late nights won’t be part of my routine. Unless all the pretty people are dancing scantily clad.... then Ill get me a Bottle of champagne and watch the festivities. 😈👹🤓🤪😝 let the games begin. hey bostonfred....pack the disco clothes...white shoes matching belt and ruffled tux shirt. Have wife in stacked heels, hose with seams in the back and something strapless.Teach the young How it’s really done. We seasoned cruisers invented it! 70..... it was a good year 👹
  3. I just booked a cruise on the Apex for late 2021. For those that have sailed on the Edge.......what were the good and not so good aspects of the ship? its been a while since I have sailed Celebrity.... but after booking the Vacaya cruise on the Summit for 2021, I thought I should try a new build. In the meantime it’s the new Princessships Sky and Enchanted. So I’d appreciate thoughts on the Edge to paint a picture of what to expect on Apex. Thanks in advance. Tom
  4. Bon voyage! I’ll be on her sailing March 21.......don’t tire the crew out too much 😜
  5. Pictures of the ships interior are slowly being posted on the Internet. Definitely different and colorful. I have to admit I’m getting more excited. It’s funny the ship makes me think of an Austin Powers movie set. Maybe I’ll get a T-shirt that says... oh behave 😈
  6. Yes Peter. Last name starts with V. Can’t find him on Facebook anymore.
  7. Peter, do you remember a guy from the Hawaii cruise...Ray from Washington.....I’ll leave out his last name.
  8. I’m booked... anxious to see old RSVP friends. The Summit is a bad luck ship for me having sailed on her twice before. Hoping the third time is a charm. i am pleased the embarkation is Puerto Rico.... a nice change. see ya on board.
  9. Some people are just negative. Some go on a cruise with one goal...to find things to complain about. people have said they couldn’t find anything good to eat.... I’d love to see what they eat at home. Others complain they didn’t get lobster...when they paid @$500 for a week.... i read one post.... the food great, service great, ports great, bar service great....but I’ll never sail on that line again because the internet service was so slow. And yes, people put down a product that they have not experienced, but in this case a ship that hadn’t entered service. They should just be happy that they can even contemplate a cruise when other people don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Sorry... my soap box came out.
  10. Flgrl67, I knew you had to be my kind of people when I saw your dogs name... Gracie Mae. And a fellow carnivore 🥩🥓🌭🍔🍖 Love my Gracie!
  11. Well the type of music isn’t a big concern for me as long as it varies... too much of the same thing is boring. The one type I would love by the main pool for a little time each day would be steel drum music. Most might disagree but to me nothing says Caribbean than some steel drum reggae music. Not for hours but maybe mid afternoon with cocktails. But the late night club party better have something hot 🥵 laying by a decent DJ. If all else fails, I’ll grab a strong drink and just people watch.😈
  12. Well I am a dog person. Mine is a 10 year old dachshund named Gracie. She is the only family I have.... separation is rough on the both of us. For me...seafood consists of shell fish (shrimp I live for).Actual fish is anything that is not oily and strong tasting. My biggest no no is anything raw...oysters forget it. Sushi...no. Glad to hear you are carnivores...let eat😛
  13. Flgrl67...... cool! A drag queen lunch!!! Maybe I’ll wear my trailer trash T-shirt I bought in Key West. That should be an eyebrow raiser...👹 By the way, your photo includes a doggie..... what kind, name, and how long have you been blessed with that bundle of joy? Back on restaurants.... I’m going to check out the entire list and pick something different for each night. As it appears we can make reservations a couple months prior to the cruise. I figure make a res and it can always be cancelled once on board. The steak restaurant is number one for me.....then the Mongolian barbq . The Italian... if it has osso buco ......I’m there . I’m a carnivor and proud of it..... did someone say bacon? Pig, yummmmmm!🐷🐖🐷🐖🐷😛
  14. Well maybe I will entice you ladies and the two Guys from Melbourne to join me and give the queens a run for their money. 🤪
  15. Hi Jeanne! Thanks for your post. I was not aware reservations would need to be made prior to boarding. I’m going to have to check their website daily to see when selections for dinning, tours activities are available for selection/ purchase. my hope is to do the drag brunch on the 14th as that’s my birthday. What better way to celebrate a birthday but to have drinks surrounded by drag queens..... oh so not my routine. Im curious as to how dining venues will seat solo passengers... I’m hoping with other people as sitting alone is boring. i sure hope this cruise is great although having a great time is in my control and I always have a great time. It will be interesting to follow up with a Mediterranean cruise on the Valiant Lady with a passenger mix of Europeans. in the meantime I’m ramping up for my March cruise on the new Sky Princess. Oh so red ta go. 🤓
