  1. I figure any day I wake up on this side of the dirt is a good day. My mind is still 16 but my body is 74 and aches all over. Won't stop me from cruising though. Pat
  2. Okay we are guilty here. In our garage is a Mercedes 450S and a Porsche 911. Yes we love suites also. Our favorite is the Royal Suite. I should tell you why we have all of this, it is because my husband has worked hard his whole life and now we are in our 70's and we want to spend our money on what we enjoy. Our kids know that I will not leave them a bill but they have to make their own money just like we did. We enjoy Celebrity and we sail 3 to 4 times a year. This is not to say we haven't sailed in every type of cabin over the close to 30 years we have been cruising. No matter what cabin we have sailed in has always been great on Celebrity. Sail in what you can afford and enjoy every day at sea. Pat
  3. On occasion we have left our scale at home. Just ask you cabin steward or your butler and they will bring one for you to use. Pat
  4. I too love the suite life. I enjoy all the perks and love the crew. Love seeing people we know on the ship who have been making our sailing so pleasurable. We mostly sail the Caribbean and now the ports don't matter any more. There is only so many ports they can visit in the Caribbean. I sail for the service I get from the crew. Pat
  5. Linda, the retreat lounge on Edge has plenty of comfortable chairs and couches. It also has a window wall across both sides of the ship. It has also an outdoor seating area with plenty of shade if you prefer to sit outside. Afternoon tea was served to you by the butlers. Food was available all day. You could go up and get it yourselves or the wait staff would bring what you like. They had soft entertainment in there also. It was quite nice as the singers were never too loud. You really have to try the Edge, it was a wonderful experience. Pat
  6. I was told that there will be a bar on Apex in the retreat lounge. Pat
  7. On the S class we always take a Royal Suite. I guess I am just spoiled by that room. Other than the tub in the CS on Edge I was still quite pleased with the cabin. Pat
  8. They have changed the shower. It now has glass across the whole tub with two doors in the middle to get in. It didn't leak but I still would have preferred it to be just a shower. The big rocking chair is still there but really did not get in the way. I thought it was quite comfortable. Pat
  9. We enjoyed the Edge very much. We had the Celebrity suite which was very nice. So glad that the tub was not so deep that I couldn't get in to take a shower. I still don't understand why they put in a tub when a nice big shower would have been so much nicer. The suite area was very nice and everything was all in one area. The service was above par, the ship beautiful and the ports were great. Pat
  10. We just came off Edge on Nov. 24. We had a Celebrity suite. Luminaie was very nice and the food was excellent. My only complaint is that is was a lot noisier than I remember on the other Celebrity ships. It is much larger and that may be why it is not so quiet. The suite lounge was very nice and the pool area and bar was very nice also. We ate at Fine cut which I would recommend highly. We also ate dinner at the Roof top Grill but I thought it was nothing special. We ate lunch in the Grand Bistro and enjoyed it so much we ate there twice. Also we love the sushi restaurant on deck 5. The ship is really beautiful and enjoy your suite and all it has to offer. Pat
  11. I am in deep shock over this sad news. I so enjoyed reading all her posts and she would answer everyone's questions with never a remark of "that has been asked before." She seemed to be everyone's friend here on Cruise Critic. I know that I will miss her info on Edge and Apex. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family at this time. Pat
  12. I was told that the Suite restaurant will be moved to the back of Apex. This way the kitchens will all be in one place. I think this will make the elevator situation worse for the aft elevators. We had no problems with the forward elevators never had to wait or was crowded. Loved the suite lounge and the bar and the pool. Apex will have a bar in the retreat lounge also. Pat
  13. We have already received two emails from Celebrity for our cruise after yours that we should arrive after 12;30 because of immigration for all the crew and passengers on your trip and then the US inspection of the ship. We have a suite so the shoreside concierge told us there is a special place for suite guests to wait so we will arrive at our original time. I feel sorry for the crew because the US inspection is very important for all of them. Pat
  14. We usually stay in a Royal Suite and the specialty restaurants are included in the price of the suite. We ate at the Porch for lunch almost everyday. It is quiet and the service and the food is exceptional. Pat
