  1. Edge is a great ship, and offers new ways of enjoying cruising. Very well laid out. Believe the cuisine is the most diverse and high quality on Celebrity. The MDR is split into 4 smaller main dining rooms, each with a specialty entree (Med, French, Italian, Continental), but they also have a large common menu thats served in all of them. In order to enjoy all 4 dining rooms, you want the Select (anytime dining). If you take the set dining schedule, you'll only be able to rotate through 3 of them. The special restaurants are also very good. Eden very unique - like Wonderland on an Oasis class ship. Steakhouse also excellent. There's entertainment throughout the ship, lots of art, and plenty of deck space. Virtual balcony is is like a sunporch. The window does slide down, but its not a full balcony experience, more like a sun porch. Balcony is separated with a set of doors. If you open the window, the A/C is turned off. When you close the window, the A/C is restored. In terms of experience, if you've had a balcony in the past, you'll notice a different feel to the room, if you haven't you won't really care. Very smooth ride. Edge class has a new bow design that makes the ship very slick and smooth during the cruise.
  2. Does Coco Cay have a "Captain of the Island" or a RCL Governor (General Manager) who is directing operations? Seems like it has many of the same features of the ship without the engines and hotel side of things.
  3. Sailed HAL, and it is a much more mature ship, plus there really are no toys on a HAL ship. Princess is more kid friendly. Really believe RCL is best all around for families with a diverse age spread.
  4. Cruised to Alaska 3x. Love Sitka and Icey Point (Hoonya). Icey point is just a dock with a small tourist area. Recommend making the walk into Hoonyah and talk to the locals. Also the land tour to include Denali is a great add on. Take the train and look for the moose.
  5. Dined in Tuscan on a couple of ships. Better service than MDR - more relaxed. Food quality is a little better too. Is it worth the money - that's up to the individual. Thought it a little high, but when you're on vacation - you need to splurge a bit.
  6. There are some future Liberty itineraries that are more than 7 days. Include a canal pass-by and Columbia.
  7. Guessing that will apply to Celebrity also. We have a B2B on Celebrity Infinity next year, but haven't heard any announcement of the port move. Nor seen itinerary change on the website.
  8. If Celebrity starts sailing 4th quarter, I'm guessing Apex and Edge will be 2 of the ships they'll put back to service. Apex is supposed to start with the Med before coming to the Carribean. Now that the EU has clamped down on tourism from the states, will be interesting to see if Apex stays with the med itinerary, or is redeployed to Carribean early. Bunch of what-ifs - we're all guessing right now. But as no one can cruise, what other diversions are there?
  9. We're on Edge over Thanksgiving break. I'm not confident we'll be sailing by then. We won't cancel, will make final payment and hope for the best. Seems they've been working hard to make things right with the FCC.
  10. I saw Genting cruise line, parent of Dream cruises out of Taiwan, will begin sailing 26 July. They announced their health protocols. Virgin cruises also published a top level protocols and plan to commence in Oct. Would think we should be seeing some similar publication from RCL. Options are floated like buffet adjustments, restricted ship occupancy, but have not seen a back to business plan published from RCL yet.
  11. UV kills the bad stuff in moments, so anything in the direct sunlight will be sun sanitized.
