  1. On Reflection now... Café al Bacio [Deck 5] hours are 6:30 AM until midnight... Il Secondo Bacio [beverages only; Deck 14 in The Oceanview Café (port)] follows similar hours...
  2. If you are sailing in Concierge Class on Edge, you likely have a stateroom with an Infinite Veranda... There is no coffee table in the room and, as I suspect you know, there is no outdoor access to the balcony as there is on other ships... I found Room Service dining on Edge to be a chore...
  3. Both Celebrity Reflection and Celebrity Summit were docked at St. Kitt's yesterday... About forty guests--equally split between the two ships--did a tour to Nevis... It was a treat to see that Journey--complete with a few Azamara crew members I recognized from the past--was at anchor while we were there...
  4. The shows are typically scheduled at 7:00 and 9:00 PM...
  5. 7:45 is indeed peak dining time... If you are planning to attend the 7:00 PM show prior to having dinner, a 7:45 dining reservation might be a few minutes early in terms of seeing the end of the show and then walking from the theater [forward] to the main dining rooms [aft].
  6. Silhouette will not use the app until the ship has been revolutionized... X website is down for maintenance at the moment but I seem to recall that work is occurring over several weeks in January/February 2020...
  7. Those who've attained Diamond, Diamond Plus or Pinnacle level in Royal Caribbean's Crown & Anchor Society are recognized as Elite members of Celebrity's Captain's Club on a reciprocal basis... Similarly, those who've attained Elite, Elite Plus or Zenith level in Celebrity's Captain's Club are recognized as Diamond members of Royal Caribbean's Crown & Anchor Society on a reciprocal basis... To my mind [some see it differently], the benefits associated with Elite membership in Captain's Club are roughly comparable to--but not the same as--those provided to Crown & Anchor Society Diamond members... Please see the appropriate section of each line's website for details...
  8. The nightly shows are usually scheduled for 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM... Celebrity does not publish entertainment or activity schedules--tentative or firm--in advance... Once aboard, the final details will be available to you via the app and in print...
  9. Prior to introduction of Edge about a year ago, the app was initially tested on two ships that have not yet been revolutionized... One of those ships was Reflection [revolution scheduled for February 2023] and, to the best I recall, Constellation [revolution scheduled for May 2020] was the other... After sailing Edge twice earlier this year and successfully getting my bar-coded Xpress Passes for expedited check-in via the app on both, I am sailing Reflection on 29 November and can confirm that the app is indeed working for that cruise too... I use my laptop rather than my phone for online check-in--big fingers/small keyboard don't mix easily for me--but, in each case, the Xpress Passes have immediately transferred to the phone app upon completion of the abbreviated check-in process on my computer... Using the screen shot that whitshel has posted [#9 above], the Xpress Pass can be accessed via the right-most of the three icons [depicting ship, calendar and guest] immediately above "Day 1/Fort Lauderdale" on the app... When you complete the online check-in process, you will be asked to select a suggested--but not binding--boarding time... That information--along with your name, reservation number, deck/stateroom number, stateroom category [ie; AquaClass], Captain's Club tier, muster station, a notation relative to any beverage package you may have and a bar code--transfers to the phone... If you've fully completed the check-in process and the personal photo you've uploaded meets the well-defined guidelines [they will take a new photo if needed], the boarding process entails the usual security screenings and a few quick scans of the Xpress Pass on your phone by roving greeters/check-in/security agents... Extremely speedy, easy, and painless; it's worked like a charm for me...
  10. Bed position does not alternate on the Millennium-Class ships as it does on the Solstice-Class ships
  11. Typically, expedited arrival is assigned to those sailing in a suite and to those who are Zenith members in Captain's Club... If you are in either of those categories, inquire when contacted by a Shoreside Concierge when contacted several weeks prior to you embarkation...
  12. While the Sunset View balconies on Edge are large and inviting--for me, they're certainly far more appealing than the Infinite Verandahs [not a fan; loved Edge but twice with that feature was enough], I'm not sure that they are any larger in terms of total square footage than some of those irregularly shaped ones located "on the slants" of the Solstice-Class ships. And as I suspect you know, they seem to be way smaller than any of the aft balconies [Family Verandah and Concierge 1] located on Decks 7 through 9 of the Millennium-Class ships. With no need for a suite, I'll certainly look for an SV if I choose to sail Edge again or to book Apex [and potentially, the successor three E-Class new builds if the IV design--in fairness, some do enjoy it--continues] in the future. Thanks for the photos, hcat. Have a great trip!
  13. Celebrity often conducts systems back up, maintenance, and updates on Saturday nights/Sunday mornings (Eastern time)... It’s been their practice for years and some weeks it takes longer than others... Suggest you try again periodically but it might yet take a few hours...
  14. It is likely, but not assured, that Equinox will used Celebrity's new Terminal 25 at Port Everglades... If there is more than one Celebrity ship at Port Everglades on the day of your sailing--or if there is maintenance scheduled at the terminal on that day--your actual terminal assignment may differ... The Port Everglades website lists terminal assignments--with relative accuracy save for last minute changes--up to seven days before your travel date... You'll find that link here... https://pevvesseltraffic.broward.org/webx/ Once you have determined the terminal assignment for your cruise, you will find information relative to parking and a port map via the Port Everglades home page... https://www.porteverglades.net/
  15. On Millennium Class, the C1 staterooms are all located on the aft and feature huge balconies... They’re very popular, tend to be booked quickly and command a price premium...
