Well the cruise countdown has officially begun. Yes, a new cruise has been booked and I can’t wait for it to get here. The bad part, it is over a year away next March 15th. This will be an anniversary cruise for me and my wife for our eight year anniversary.
We will be sailing on the Celebrity Silhouette on an Eastern Caribbean cruise departing from Fort Lauderdale. We will be visiting San Juan, Puerto Rico; Basseterre, St. Kitts; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten. It’s basically the ideal itinerary that we were looking for.
My wife and I are probably on the same page of what we are most looking forward to. Yes that will be spending our anniversary together WITHOUT the kids. After this point, I am guessing we are on different pages. She will probably say that she is looking forward to each of the destinations. She will be sitting at work and looking at excursions and will be calling me and emailing me on what ones she likes. While I’m excited about the itinerary, I am most excited about finally getting onboard a Celebrity Solstice Class ship.
The Celebrity experience is something that fits our likes to a tee. They offer a more upscale experience or, as they refer to it, “Modern Luxury”. They put more emphasis on food quality, so much so they even partnered with Bravo’s “Top Chef” to offer the Top Chef at Sea experience. You can read more about that on a previous post, Celebrity and “Top Chef”, a Foodie Dream
My wife has already told me she is looking forward to trying Qsine and Tuscan Grille. I am looking forward to the Lawn Club Grill. The highlight of dining at the Lawn Club Grill is the opportunity to serve as your party’s “Grill Master,” by being paired with a Celebrity chef to assist in preparing the menu for your table over custom-built, ventilated grills. Plus it is located next to the Lawn Club, a half acre of actually growing green grass.
I’m sure I will be writing more about this cruise over the next year but, right now, I’m just excited over a new countdown beginning.
