Celebrity Edge Live Blog - Embarkation Day

Note to readers: This live blog was written mostly from Billy's perspective.  He and Ric are both traveling on this Celebrity Edge preview cruise, and where noted below, Ric chimes in.  For more information on how this sailing came to be, you can get context here.

There were four of us plus bags, so the usual plan of taking an Uber or Lyft didn’t work out as easily, as we’d have needed a larger car, which is an option with both services, but costs more than the ride for two normal rides -- so we got two cars and split up. read more

I had just finished breakfast in the main dining room on the final morning of my Celebrity Infinity sailing (live-ish blog here) when one of my tablemates came back into the restaurant to tell me the ship was arriving. Thank you, L! I stepped outside and took a couple of pictures and then started up a Periscope. Check out both read more
