  1. Are any or all of the specialty restaurants open for lunch?
  2. My wife and I have "free" internet as a perk. We will each have a phone and a laptop/tablet. Can we connect all devices?
  3. Looking forward to our cruise on the Edge in a couple of weeks. I have been reading this forum regularly and have gotten much valuable information. However I wonder if anyone has any last minute suggestions. We will be arriving the day before and likely Ubering to the pier. I have checked in on the app. They say to board at 1:30. Anything I should do once aboard? We have not made any specialty reservations yet as the time offerings weren't very good. We are staying after for 2 nights - planning to Uber to the airport to pick up a car and then return for our flight home two days later. Thanks for any last minute advice.
  4. Looking forward to one week on the Edge mid-January. We are staying two extra days following the cruise and so will need to stay somewhere Sunday and Monday night before flying home Tuesday morning. I continue to look at various hotels and Airbnbs but have not yet reserved anything. We will probably taxi or Uber from the Edge to FLL and rent a car so we don't necessarily need to be close to the cruiseport. Any favorite places in or around Ft Lauderdale?
  5. At any bar if you ask generically for a "whiskey and coke" they are going to use a well whiskey such as Seagram's. Nothing wrong with that.
  6. No harm taken PTC. I am hoping nobody whiskey-shames me onboard if they see with some ice in my whiskey!
  7. Not exactly. Looks like I will be drinking with a bunch of whiskey snobs onboard the Edge in January. 😉
  8. Depends on the bourbon. Jack is a definite upgrade from lower shelf bourbons like Old Crow or Early Times but not up there with Jefferson or Four Roses (single barrel) Jack is basic Tennessee Whiskey, on par with a bourbon like Jim Beam
  9. Cruising on the Edge in January. It would appear that there is no availability for reservations at Fine Cuts until late in the evening, 9-10 pm. Is there a change of getting a reservation at an earlier time once on board? Is it possible to make lunch reservations on-line preboarding?
  10. Sailing in Aqua Class on the Edge in January. Have not been on Celebrity in 10 years and especially on Edge I know things will be different that we remeber. I would think we will have our breakfast in Blue each day to avoid the crush at the buffet or the hubbub of the MDR. But perhaps I am wrong about that? Lunch? On HAL we often have lunch in a specialty restaurant for a quieter meal, but personally I have always enjoyed the selections at the buffet. Dinner? How many days should we dine in Blu v an alternative? Would be interested to hear what you think.
  11. Seeking opinions from the HAL crowd. My wife and I have sailed exclusively on HAL for about the last 10 years - most recently on Oosterdam last winter. We were disappointed in that cruise for many of the reasons that we have been talking about here: limited mainstage entertainment, we were part of the $10 MDR charge for additional entree, no cold soups, etc etc. And so this year we are going on the Edge in January. Seems like there are lots of fans and lots of nonfans of Edge. Any of our HAL vets sailed her yet? What did you think. We are in Aqua Class with the controversial infinite veranda.
  12. If I have the classic drink package with its $9/drink limit but order a $15 dollar cocktail am I charged $6 or $15?
  13. If I understand correctly the "classic" drink package only allows you to have a drink or wine up to $9. I only see one wine at that price - a $9 pinot.
  14. We have booked an AquaClass gty on a January Edge sailing and have a few questions. On our booking confirmation for dining it says we have CEL SLCT. My understanding is that AquaClass dines in Blu. Will we need to reserve a time in Blu? Are there fixed times in Blu? Or do you just show up when you want? Can we also eat in one of the main dining rooms if we want? We have the classic beverage package as a perk. I want to upgrade that to the premium package but see no way to do that on the Celebrity web site. In fact the Celebrity site recognizes our on board credit but doesn't seem to know we have a beverage package. Our invoice charges us $98 for something listed as 2PKSBEVOBC NRD - sounds like something related to beverage package??? Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
