  1. Just off the Edge 2/23/20, I would say all those things are true. The "noisy" atrium didn't really bother me and I and I didn't think it was noisy. What bothered me about it was lack of space at the bar. How secluded the seating is. Its definitely not the social oval shape martini bar on the solstice class ships that becomes the hub of nightly activity as people pass from dinner to the theater. It's a closed of hole that works well for small groups or couples. Bar staff is so thin, getting a drink is a struggle. Especially on sea day around the pool. They had two servers walking around the pool and 2 bartenders... thats it. Waiving down a waiter was almost impossible and then your drink would come 40 mins later. We gave up and just went to the bar and waited 20 mins each time. Also there is a severe lack of shade in popular areas. Let me explain before I get roasted. Can you find shade?, yes! However, it's secluded and off in it own space. You can't be in the middle of the action around the pool and find shade. The sunset bar is a sun roast, no shade. Not even for the workers. Also, if you like to go from your chair, to the pool, to the hot tub back to your chair and repeat, this would involve climbing two levels and descending two levels each time. God forbid you need a drink when you climb up to the hot tub, cause you'll have to go back down and wait 20 mins for a drink. The Edge is a beautiful ship, her furnishings are beautiful, albeit somewhat beat up for being 14 months old. However, we miss the solstice pool area, the hot tubs on the same level as the pool, shade at the center of the pool, regular balconies, the sunset bar (especially on the Reflection). While some people may not care about these items, these are things we loved the most on the Solstice class ships and they have all been changed ... for the worse.

    Xplor Park

    Do you think it's possible to do go to Xplor on your own? I am familiar with the ferry and am comfortable doing it on my own.
  3. Are these cruises always so expensive? Next summer balcony running about $7500 - $10000 with the various included options/ Reg Verandah/ Concierge Class/ Aqua Class. Seems so expensive. Are they cheaper if you book as soon as they come out?
  4. We don't have travel insurance either. Oh well it is my Birthday on the 3rd and I am determined to have a great trip. Yeah we had some gusts at 50 MPH here in Central Phoenix. I am sure you'll be fine and think of it as an adventure. We were on the Harmony in December, you and your family will love it. Safe Travels!
  5. If it makes you feel any better we are from Phoenix as well headed to FLL on Friday for a Saturday departure (hopefully) on the Equinox. Just stay alert and I am sure you guys will be fine, worse case scenario you are delayed leaving port 1-2 days and have to pay for a hotel extra days. Just go with the flow and watch the forecast. The only thing that would keep us from going is waking up on Friday to head to the airport and finding out Dorian is a cat 4 or 5 headed for a direct hit to southern Florida with an arrival day on Saturday. Do you have insurance?
  6. Getting a little more nervous now as they are predicting it will be a hurricane once it arrives in Florida on Saturday or Sunday. Anyone have experience with what happens? Delay? I doubt we'll be rerouted to Western Caribbean since the hurricane will be gone but I think we might have a delayed departure. Looks like we will most likely make it to Florida on Friday afternoon with no problem. Eek
  7. Hello Marie, We have not made a decision yet but when we do I'll let you know. Getting close now! :)
  8. I confirmed online that it is Crown Bay... Ugh it seems impossible to get near Havensight by 845-9am if we are scheduled to dock at at Crown Bay at 8am.
  9. Since we are the only ship in port on September 3rd. I believe we would be docking at Havensight. ? The address for the Catamaran is located at : 5304 Yacht Haven Grande, Suite 100, St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands 00802, USVI
  10. Hey Everyone. We are wanting to book a private catamaran tour in St. Thomas for September 3rd. The Equinox docks at 8am, do you think it is possible to make it to the close by docks by 8:45 am for a 9am departure? Thanks for any insight!
