Sail Date: Jan 2023
Cabin: Concierge Class Stateroom with Veranda

After reading several of the negative reviews regarding this voyage, it made me wonder what ship were those folks on.... and is there anything in the Milky Way that would actually please them! This is our 7th Celebrity cruise and 36th overall and our humble stateroom is, 11154, Concierge class. We were provided with a complimentary basic beverage package, wi-fi, included gratuities, and $675 shipboard credit. All meals were eaten in the Oceanview or the Mast Grille. We did not use any of the four Deck 5 restaurants or the specialty restaurants. We have been to all the visited ports on previous cruises but we always got off the Edge to explore each town. We are in very good physical condition for mid-70's folks so we never make use of transportation in port. We also took no excursions since exploring the towns on foot is more entertaining to us. Neither of us had any serious complaints during the entirety of the 11-day cruise. On a couple of occasions there was a shortage of bar staff particularly at the Pool Bar. Eden is always fun and Alexander the Great is a master bartender. Magic Carpet is another fun place to sit at the bar and people watch. Although Magic Carpet is capable of moving between the decks of the ship, it never moved from Deck 14 during the voyage. The Casino Bar is fun and has sports TVs...and many places where you can donate your money to the ship (we did not). The Martini Bar was always full and we could never find a place to sit.

Day 1: Embarkation. Taxi from the Ft. Lauderdale airport to the port is $25 for the ten minute trip. We had to wait in the port terminal for 15-20 minutes before boarding the Edge at 11:00. As someone referred to it as, the "Mustard Drill" was painless and can be done on one's iPhone followed by a visit to the muster station. The ship departed at 4:00.

Day 2: Sea Day. We used the "track" to walk 3 miles. The track requires 4.5 laps per mile and meanders from Deck 15 to Deck 16 through the mid and aft sections of the ship. One lane is for runners and one lane is for walkers. The Sunset Bar on Deck 16 is always a fun spot to sit and view the Caribbean.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class Stateroom with Veranda

The infinity veranda was "different"! Personally we prefer the traditional style of outdoor veranda but this one was satisfactory. Bathroom and the shower are large. There is plentiful storage space. The daily "Can-of-Peas" were less than desirable and served as an inside source of amusement.
