Celebrity Edge Ship Tour

The Celebrity Edge is Celebrity's newest ship. I sailed her in January 2019.

Some of the biggest innovations that I really liked:

  • The Infinite Edge Veranda stateroom - Instead of a traditional balcony, you have a huge window that the top half opens. It makes the room feel so much better. They did a terrific job making the most of the space in the bathroom. Take a look:


  • Destination Gateway - The Edge has a new spacious area for getting on and off the ship in port.

TRS Yucatan Review 2019

I thought you might be interested in this email and photos I got from Kim about her stay at TRS Yuactan. Don't worry, she said I could share!

Angie:

The trip was just lovely.

The service level at TRS was great. There were so many people making sure we were ok. I can't remember all of their names! Check in was smooth complete with champagne. The resort was beautiful. Our butler even found us a fan to make the room more comfortable. I loved that the wristband was also the room key. The room was nice; very comfortable and it had a lovely view.

The dinner show Chic, was outstanding....so much fun. high energy. We need tickets for that but very worth it.

It wasn't a deal breaker but it was a little odd that wine wasn't included. I did like that most restaurants had a signature drink they offered. The food was good. We didn't need reservations for any dinner...that might be the time of year. We noticed the place wasn't very crowded and even the flights were not full.

Frontier Airlines was solid. I liked that we could get a little more room when we booked the seats (thank you for your help with that!); No issues with flights either way.

The tour to tulum and the cenotes was incredible. The guides were knowledgeable and fun. I was a little nervous at first about the cenote swim, but the guide checked in with me several times. It was a great experience and I am so glad we did that.
 
 

That is all I can think of right now. We are mulling over the next vacation so as so as we have a direction we will let you know.

Thank you!

Kim

Sneak Peek: Westin Grand Cayman





Westin Grand Cayman is a great choice for a beach vacation. Imagine spending your days relaxing on the best stretch of Seven Mile beach -  right next to the Governor's mansion. You have the convenience of three restaurants plus a coffee shop. The resort is not all inclusive so you'll have the flexibility of eating at the resort or heading to several restaurants and stores within walking distance.  
 
One of the restaurants - Beach House - is one of the best restaurants on the island. Now that's a date night - dinner at Beach House, walk under the stars down the powdery sand, and end with a cocktail at the newly renovated lobby bar.  
 
The resort has fun for the whole family with a Kids' Club offering both supervised and family activities. The Saturday night Marshmallow Madness is a favorite of many repeat guests.  
 
Overall, the resort tends to have a relaxing vibe. Between January - March, a lot of the guests are part of group so you'll see private events and more adults than families.

Resort Tour: Hard Rock Riviera Maya



Hard Rock Riviera Maya is a fun, active resort with lots to do for families and adults. The Woodward Academy is best in the business. It's an indoor sports center with a skatepark, trampoline, foam fits, cheer, hip hop, DJ booth, ninja obstacle course and more. The rock walls break the heavy surf to create cove beaches. The resort has a promotion with a limitless resort credit you can use the Woodward Academy activities or select spa treatments, excursions, or golf. You pay a 25% service charge.

The adults only Heaven section is the cure for travelers who find most adults only resorts too quiet. The pool is a party all day long and a real night club keeps the party going. The food I had was delicious. 

After this video was filmed, Hard Rock opened a fantastic water park.
