Celebrity Edge Preview Cruise, Main Dining Rooms

There are Four Main Dining rooms included with your Celebrity Edge vacation. You can dine in anyone you choose, even if you are assigned one specifically for your entire cruise vacation. They can all be pre-reserved before you board or you can make a reservation once on board or walk up to check availability as well. For the most part, they all service pretty much the same offerings but do offer exclusive dishes in each location.

The Best Christmas Gift Yet, A Trip Report

So, we did it. We gave our kids a Walt Disney World Getaway (and I say getaway because it was a very quick and very busy 4 days) just this past Christmas. Yes, we have surprised them before with a trip- once a few years back and it didn’t go well. Our youngest son was thrilled but our oldest daughter was horrified because she didn’t know and really loves to help in the entire planning process, etc. Our middle daughter didn’t know what to think, but she was happy. This time, we let our oldest daughter in on the surprise early on. Our middle daughter found out once most of the plans were made as she was “just checking” our My Disney Experience account. Our youngest was surprised Christmas morning, well sort of. I will explain later. Continue reading
