I know you are in the final stages of your cruise and we are sending positive vibes your way for the remainder of your cruise.

 

From one Ketel One plus grapefruit to another, can you check with Priscilla in the Retreat (hopefully Priscilla Schmidt) to see if she will be on Edge Nov 15/19?

 

I promise not to bug you again...till next cruise.

 

Thank you so much

 

Randy and Connie

Paul thank you for sharing your time on the Edge with everyone. Reading this blog has made the dreary weather here a little more bearable. 😊

We were wondering if Priscilla would be staying on the Edge for the April crossing.

So today is our last day as we get off the ship tomorrow. We have luggage tag 3 and a 11am flight so we will be off early.

Today I actually did a video testimonial for the Edge which was pretty cool. I just briefly talked about a few of my favorite things about the ship and they recorded me in Eden. I was more than happy to do it and it was an interesting experience.

Yesterday we had dinner back in Luminae as it was Evening Chic. For some reason neither of us were too hungry. There did appear to be a new item on the appetizer menu that I don’t remember from before. It was an Octopus Shell Pasta Salad.

This was followed by the lamb and some lobster to share.

The lamb was the highlight in my opinion but the lobster was still very good. We both skipped dessert and just had some decaf coffee.

After dinner we went to Eden to get a drink and watch the show. The show was definitely interesting and I’ll have plenty of video of it posted. We just had some seats by the bar and watched it from there.

Did you understand the Eden show at night and what was the story line?

Thanks ChicagoPaul for the great reviews on both Reflection and now the Edge.  We are booked on the 2/16/20 Edge Cruise and this has been very helpful in planning our time on the ship.  Safe travels on the way home.  PS:  We lived in Lake Forest for 16 years and feel a connection with Chicago.

Cheers Everyone. Well our cruise is officially over as we’re at the airport. We have an 11am flight at FLL that is now an 11:40 flight. Wish it was rescheduled for this time instead of delayed, we could’ve used luggage valet!

Anyway, as I sit here with awful airport WiFi, I’ll start to put together info from yesterday as well as my final review and complete thoughts on the ship.

So sorry to see this end so quickly. looking forward to your final observations.

one weird question though about the Martini bar. do you think there is enough space if the wanted to redesign and make the Martini bar larger?

Regards to you and Edward, safe travels home.

Must seem over too quickly, that’s the trouble with 7 day cruises. 

Would you book on Edge again, or go back to ‘S’ class?

Thanks Paul.  How was going through Customs when you got back to FLL?  On our cruise they used facial recognition in terminal 25 and it was super fast.

It was the same this morning. We made it from our suite into an Uber in under 10 minutes. Smoothest disembarkation ever. Love terminal 25!

Hope you had a great cruise! If you or anyone else would like to review your Edge cabin/suite on the Edge Class sticky, it would be great! The more cabins we get into the spreadsheet, the more info there will be for those choosing cabins. 🙂

 

Just copy and paste the template in the first post and paste it into a new post and add your info:

Thank you for taking the time to put this together. Seven days go fast on the ship - reading it went fast too, even as I sat here with the crummy cold weather.
