Celebrity Edge – Personal Review
Stateroom – Sky Suite room 11202 (as compared to Sky Suite on Solctice Ships)
-Open balcony with rail;
-Bathroom mirror opens to view the ocean (NOTE: This mirror slides open at night in rough seas)
-couch very hard;
-safe is 2/3 size of previous ship’s safes;
-Balcony chairs comfortable but have short backs and no chase lounges making it impossible to put our head back and legs up for a snooze on the balcony (NOTE: we spoke to another couple who has a Sky Suite. They requested a lounge chair and the cabin attendant exchanged the chairs for lounges);
-Bathroom has a tub and mostly senior passengers who have problems just sitting and standing up so why make them step over a tub to get in the shower;
-No place to hang a towel near the shower – we had to put the towel on the floor outside the tub;
-soap dish in shower is under the showerhead, immediately fills with water so no soap bar can be left in this dish; in any case they did not provide soap bars in the shower.
-Didn’t like the Body Wash, Shampoo or Conditioner. They are now in 2 pint containers with a locked pump top – had to play with the pump ever day to get it to work – finally just unscrewed the pump top in order to use it – wasted a lot of shower water while we putzed around getting the pump to work – NOTE we liked the BVLGARI brand we had on previous cruises was a much better product.
-garbage can in bathroom is under the sink/cabinet drawer – need to bend over nearly touching the floor to dispose of tissues (not good for seniors with a bad back);
-We miss the daily hard copy newspaper;
-No more flowers in the room (not sure how that helps the environment);
