  1. Thanks for responding. We've always been able to hook up our iPad to the TV on Celebrity, RCCL & Princess via HDMI cable; however, after the Summit was revolutionized the TV system was changed.
  2. My DH was very disappointed as I was. He downloaded many shows and movies from Netflix, Amazon, HBO, etc. There were at least 5 Celebrity sales channels, children/cartoon channels, Food Network, Fox News and several sports channels. We only saw a few free On-Demand movies which we weren't interested in watching. I don't remember if there any other channels. We were limited to Food Network and Fox News. Fortunately our next cruise is on Eclipse before the Equinox.
  3. Have any recent Equinox sailors attempted to hook up an iPad or laptop to the TV? We just sailed on the revolutionized Summit and the TV system has changed with their major refurbishment. The new system no longer allowed us to change the HDMI input even with a Samsung remote. According to an IT supervisor who came to our SS, the new system is no longer an "Apple" run system, but a different modem one. We have an upcoming sailing on Equinox and curious if the tv system was changed on the S ships which are not totally revolutionized like the M ships.
  4. I like the floor plan of these two cabins, but I've read a few reviews that there was some vibrations in the cabin. Has anyone who has stayed in these cabins experienced vibrations?
  5. Has anyone had luck with using their drink vouchers on Brilliance recently?
  6. I forgot to mention that DH was very disappointed when we plugged our iPad into the TV via HDMI to watch our downloaded Netflix-Amazon shows and could not switch the input. The IT supervisor came to our suite and advised that the new tv system was no longer an “Apple” tv, but a “modem” system and you can no longer switch the HDMI input.

  8. There is no sink tab...just a drain with about 7 holes. FYI: towels take up 1/3 of the open shelf below the sink. Also, there is no safety grab bar in the shower.
  9. Great review! A few thoughts of my own on how the designer dropped the ball. The ridiculous nightstand lamps are 7 1/2” high. I also unplugged the bathroom nightlight since it was way too bright and fortunately we travel with a small battery one so we didn’t stub our toes. We moved the armed chair near the refrigerator and also used the suitcase bench at the desk. I brought a few dollar store baskets since I knew the desk drawer (1 1/2” deep) wouldn’t hold my round brush/curlers and to contain toiletries under the open shelf below the bathroom sink. The 3 shelf storage behind the bathroom door has been reduced to a single shelf. Everyone loves losing precious bathroom storage space. We brought foaming hand soap tor the counter since we hate mushy bar soap and a small rubbery draining soap dish for the shower. Nothing like paying suite prices and having to bring stuff to improve it. The walls are no longer metal so those of you who like to hang hooks for clothesline are out of luck and there isn’t a clothesline in the shower. I bring lightweight vinyl coated hangers with plastic clothes pins. There is a valance in front of the curtain which is great for hanging wet laundry. The sink doesn’t have a stopper for hand-washables or DH shaving so fortunately I always travel with a flat 5” rubber stopper. There is a metal basket containing 2 life jackets under the bed. We replaced the jackets with the annoying knickknacks that were taking up valuable space. We bring earplugs since the ship sometimes creaks and there is new terminal construction going on at the Bermuda cruise port. Every morning at 7:30 am they were hammering scaffolding together...we were on the port side. Wished we had brought sleep masks as the curtains were not room darkening as the sunlight snuck in below and above the curtains. Otherwise the color is appealing, new and clean.
  10. There isn’t an actual modem box. The IT supervisor described it as a modem type system.
  11. The IT supervisor explained the new system doesn’t allow alternate viewing via other HDMI inputs. We were in a sky suite and the TV was fixed.
  12. Celebrity changed from an Apple TV to a “new modem” type TV. When we attached our HDMI cable from our iPad to the tv as we’ve done many times, we couldn’t change the HDMI input. An IT supervisor came to our cabin and explained the new system. We were very disappointed as we’re used to viewing our shows (Netflix, Amazon, etc) via download and streaming.
  13. We haven't bought internet packages in a while since having complimentary wi-fi on the Oasis/Quantum class ships. We're booked on a 15 day TA and are D+. My Cruise Planner has a current sale price for one Voom Surf + Stream Voyage Package for $15.99 per day. Is this price the lowest anyone has seen recently? I know my DH and I will have 2-24 hours of free C&A internet each. Any info would be appreciated.
