I agree.  I would also have thought they would have it included on the Phone App.  

I forgot to ask  Jim  if he just received  that basic  list he posted,  or did it have the bios as well  ..those that  are given  horizonally on the tv  screen..

Maybe LLP does not care who's on board, but we do  as I pointed out in the  cruise critic Q  and A session

Lucky dog. 🙂

I always hate it when those luggage tags appear at the door.   Brings you back to a quick reality.

On each person, if you select that person it gives a nice biographical summary.  

 

I agree with you.    Many of us have gotten to know staff and it is always nice to know if someone is aboard.   While never 100% accurate it is better than nothing.  

 

I sat next to Kimberly (HR Director) at lunch today.    She is such a nice person and always makes you feel comfortable.   She ends her contract when we reach FLL and then is flying back to France to the shipyard.   She is going to be opening Apex as HR Director.

Tonight is our second Chic night.    We are busy getting cleaned up and dressed.    We almost always wear white dinner jackets and blow ties.    I'm terrible at tying my tie so have to get Iain to come to my rescue. 

 

We are going to have to make it an early evening as we have a long day planned for tomorrow.   We booked the high speed ferry to Capri on our own via Celebrity.   When checking the price from Celebrity it was just a little lower than booking direct with the ferry line for the sailing we are on.   Possibly Celebrity blocked many seats and only the more expensive ones were available.

I’m out exploring this afternoon while Iain naps.  
 

Currently sipping a coffee in Eden.  Very quiet and I’m the only one in the lounge.

At least it’s something. Some of us still love the book exchanges.

We also enjoy it as well..I believe Jim said  it had more books at the beginning of the cruise..I wish they'd find a better shelf or book cart,  and hope they put it  around the corner in the BLU/ Tiffany shop hallway..which is a nice reading area.

 

We think the pre-booking offer might work for us b/c the itins we want to look at won't be announced by our Nov cruise!

The finale was a chocolate Sphere. 
 

 

I wish they would offer this version on the Revolutionized ships although, in our experience, it is only offered later in the cruise so you need to be on for more than 7 days.

I had always been an avid reader but shifted to electronic books about a decade ago.   Now with all my walking I have shifted to Audio Books.   I  really love Mystery Novels and just finished Patricia Cornwell's - 24 Scarpetta's Series.   Great writer if your into Forensic type mysteries.

 

I've finished my 3rd Jeffery Dever's novel since we left home.

Jim,

following Edge on Instagram...I see a huge first birthday celebration onboard tonight!  Is it as much fun as it looks?

We are 31 days from boarding...CANNOT WAIT.  Your photos and narrative have me very anxious to get going!

Enjoy the TA.

Naples - October 31

 

Fun day but exhausting.   We took the Caprì on your own.  Departed ship at 8:30 and walked a couple blocks to the Ferry Port.   We took the 9:10 High Speed Ferry which takes about 50 minutes.  

Our guide Pepe directed us to the Funicular Lift to upper Caprì which cost 2 euros each way.  
 

Since we wanted to take the Blue Grotto Cruise  He took us to where they depart.

Iain and many others snoozed on the ferry.

The ferry is quite large and very comfortable.

The Blue Grotto and full island Cruise was 18 Euros each and when we arrived at the Grotto the row boats came to our boat for the Grotto trip.  It ran an additional 14 euros each.

Lots of partying last night and loads of funny.  They also had a Pre-Halloween party last night.   The ship has been an amazing experience.   Definitely not disappointed.

When we arrived at Grotto, those that wished got into row boats.  3-4 per boat.  You have to sit on the floor as the entrance is really low and you almost have to lay flat for a quick 5-10 seconds.

The row boats paddle up to the floating cashier.

Today was a perfect day to explore Edge in all her beauty. 
 

Edge take a little getting used to.  There are lots of dead ends and sometimes you have to go up or down a floor to get where your going.  
 

 

That was my biggest pet peeve about Edge - it's not symmetrical side to side like most ships, thus the dead ends, etc.   

 

Still I liked Edge alot!

I,ll check that out..I download books  but sometimes find something interesting that others have donated. On our EDGE cruise they had the Art Book,  art postcards..nice magazines.   Yes, I worry about germs but do my best!
