  1. Looking forward to hearing about you and your wife's adventures in Bermuda, Joe!
  2. Can't believe today is Day Twelve already, with your final port of call (Port Canaveral) tomorrow :( Loved hearing about your time in Boston (great memories of my 2012 vacation!) and photos of last night's sunset, simply gorgeous!

    YOLO SOLO - Anthem, October 13, 2018 Bermuda

    Following, looking forward to reading your live blog πŸ™‚ Bermuda is definitely on my cruise bucket list, will book either this itinerary or Southern Caribbean for December 2020! Glad to hear that your migraine improved, @ellcee πŸ‘
  4. Loving your live blog and photos, @twangster! Sorry to hear that your port of call, Sydney, was skipped, here's hoping for better weather in the days ahead. FYI, Anne of Green Gables is MASSIVELY popular in Japan, just in case you were wondering why your menu was in Japanese LOL.
  5. First off, I am a big fan of Disney as is my family of six. We have sailed DCL twice (Wonder '15, Magic '17) and have a seven night Western Mediterranean cruise booked on the Magic for next June. Honestly, this will probably be our last DCL cruise for a while because the cost was even more exorbitant than usual for two staterooms (oceanview verandah, interior staterooms on Deck Five). If we decide to return to Europe for a Greece/Eastern Europe itinerary, I'm going to try to convince them to try Royal Caribbean πŸ™‚ As a solo adult cruiser, I do miss the amenities offered by Royal Caribbean (e.g. rock climbing, zip line, laser tag), water- and ice-based entertainment, speciality restaurants, adult programming, superior Internet, and studio staterooms. And, having more ships in their fleet, Royal can offer more itineraries world-wide! Although DCL is a premium cruise line, I still honestly think that the cruise-inclusive food and customer service are about the same. DCL's only advantage is that their website is very user-friendly; the less I have to say about royalcaribbean.com the better LOL.

    Cellar Masters

    It is a wine bar onboard selected ships in Celebrity's fleet, and, on some of these ships, an enomatic-wine dispensing system is offered to facilitate tastings in 1-, 2.5-, and 5-ounce glasses. Looks as if Cellar Masters was omitted from Celebrity Edge.

    Introduce yourself!

    Welcome Jennifer, I work in a suburb just north of Toronto and live in a suburb west of the city. (Gotta love that three hour daily commute on the 401..NOT!) I hope you and your family have a great time on Harmony, I'm scheduled to sail on her for the first time next December out of Port Canaveral πŸ™‚

    Amenities

    Here is the room service menu. Just to clarify, continental breakfast is still complimentary, all other items on the menu will incur a $7.95 charge per stateroom. As per @Matt's blog post, room service is complimentary for guests staying in a Grand Suite and above.
  9. Get up my friend, it’s cruise day today!
  10. That’s awesome news, Monterey is a terrific port of call. Enjoyed visiting that city on my bus tour in 2015 during my trip to San Francisco, aquarium is amazing πŸ‘

    Celebrity Edge Preview in Nov.

    Slightly disappointed that this ship departs out of Port Everglades ONE day after my Adventure cruise departs in December because it would have been nice to have checked it out in person. Found a really good summary video of the Edge from EatSleepCruise.com πŸ™‚

    Celebrity Edge - Photo Preview

    I was invited to a Celebrity Edge sales event by my TA back in June and we got a sneak preview by the Celebrity reps who were in attendance. (My TA thought that I would be interested in sailing with them one day.) Honestly, I thought the ship was a little too modern for my liking and I think the Infinite Balcony kind of freaked me out LOL. With that being said, when I have more disposable income, I may change my tune on this ship or any of the ships in their fleet as a number are very well-reviewed.
