LIVE from Celebrity Infinity 10/30
Time for another LIVE report!  After the wonderful first cruise I had with my daughter on Summit this summer, the husband and I decided to book Infinity to celebrate our upcoming milestone birthday (yes we share the same exact birthday). We booked a Suite guarantee and ended up with an accessible Sky suite.

Capella, Best of the Balkans
Myself and my husband are on board Capella now and I’m going to try to drop comments along the way. I will do my best to answer questions but right now my brain is a little foggy as we just woke up.
So, yesterday we left home at 4.30 for our journey to Budapest.

21 days from Sailing, midnight this morning, EDT. But wouldn't you know it, this was NCL's system maintenance Sunday, so those of us who are the early birds got nothing...zero...zilch...nada. As I posted on the site which shall remain nameless, the next thing you know, they'll tell us we can't board until 11:03 am on 01 October!

Live! Jewel of the Seas B2B October 20, 2023 to November 9, 2023: A Canada & New England Adventure with Dragon of the Seas   
DH and I are off on another cruise adventure. This time we are sailing two back-to-back one-way cruises from Cape Liberty in Bayonne, NJ to Quebec City and back--and, I can’t wait! [20 nights total] Our family thinks we are a little nuts to be gone this long. This started out as a trip from Quebec City to Bayonne.  DH has some mobility issues and airports are a challenge.  We took a similar cruise in 2019 and the experience transferring at the Montreal airport [long delay and lots of walking] was not the best.  We boarded the prop jet by walking out on the tarmac and up the stairs.  So, I found a good price on the one way to Quebec City, and I booked it. Problem solved. That's my story and I am sticking to it. 😜

I'm getting closer to LAX, but only because American keeps changing gates and terminals at DFW.

From Quebec to Miami (Oct. 20 - Nov. 3) join our voyage
I will be posting comments and photos during our cruise to hopefully give you a clear picture of our voyage. While we haven’t yet boarded the new Explora I, we have arrived in Quebec. In order to upload the photos, I will be reducing their size, but I hope you will still enjoy.

Going LIVE on Nieuw Statendam roundtrip Rome ⛲🛵Oct 26-Nov 9: Planes Trains Vespas & Ships w/GOT!!
🤭Here we go again - this time round trip from Rome (Civitavecchia) and you're invited! Pack a bag 🧳(or actually not) and let's see the classics plus whatever looks exciting and interesting. 🥴
Let me give a little backstory - I had been on a Mediterranean cruise (not HAL) a few years ago w/my sister to celebrate a milestone birthday of hers. We got a really really good deal, booked our first ever B2B, bought plane tickets and headed off to Europe. First week was great but exhausting, so I guess we were doing it right.🫣 We were among the first off ship and last back on every day - port times were longer then and we were in port 7 or 8 am until 8 pm (approx); we were determined to squeeze every possible moment out of every day. Oh, did I mention this was in June? So, those long days were 🔥 hot days w/summer crowds, ugh😞

Live from Riviera
This is our first Oceania cruise. We spent two days in Rome, walking and eating. It allowed  us to adjust to the time change. We left our hotel at 1:15, using RomeCab, they were fabulous and we were at the port at 2:30. There was a small line to go through security because there was only one small machine. Checkin was very efficient and we were in our room by 3:15. By 4:15 , our bags had been delivered, we had unpacked and I had showered. Our room, a B 2 verandah on deck 8 is lovely. We fit our suitcases easily under the bed, medium size roll- on, did not need to lift the bed. We utilized all of the various drawers, but everything fit and was put away.

Celebrity Eclipse LIVE! 8 Night Mexican Riviera Halloween and Day of the Dead Cruise! October 28th 2023
Hi to all the Celebrity Cruisers out there! 

It sure feels like a long time since our last cruise in May of this year on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas out of Galveston, so we really cant wait for our first post pandemic cruise on the Celebrity Eclipse out of Los Angeles.

"LIVE" from Regal Princess - October 24, 2023
Welcome to "LIVE" from Regal Princess.   Hello everyone, and good day. The Sea is Calling.   I will be flying to Fort Lauderdale tomorrow to sail the beautiful Regal Princess on October 24th (This Tuesday). I really don’t like to fly, and this is the 2nd time I’ve flown this year (“Oh the humanity”), but I really wanted to sail to a couple of ports that I have not been to. The last time I sailed with Princess was 20 years ago on Grand Princess (2003). Regal Princess is much newer (2014)   Regal Princess has been sailing in the United Kingdom all summer and is finishing her 15-night repositioning cruise from Southampton to Fort Lauderdale. I am also sailing a repo cruise from FLL to Galveston where Regal Princess will be spending the winter.

Live From The Odyssey, across the Pacific Ocean
We boarded the Odyssey yesterday in Los Angeles, for the 32 day cruise across the Pacific to New Zealand.  We have been to Los Angeles and Auckland before; all the other ports are new for us.
 
There are 315 guests and 362 crew members on board. The feeling and energy at the sail away was really great. It is surprising to us how many people chose a 32 day cruise for their first time on Seabourn.

Bit of a blog - Spirit of Adventure - Treasures of the Adriatic - Oct 2023
Good morning and ahoy there!
 
Setting this up for my long day tomorrow travelling to embark Spirit of Adventure.
 
We booked this cruise by default back in July last year. We'd been booked to go to South America earlier this year with Saga but due to concerns about the strict Covid protocols at that time that cruise was cancelled. This cruise fit our criteria of visiting places we'd not been to before and we decided to move over with some compensation rather than cancel with full refund.

🐾 🐾  Sea Dog gets Wet, a "Soggy Adventure LIVE" 10-21-23
Hello friends It’s time for another Sea Dog review and it's going to be live. This time we will be on Adventure of the Seas which has a special memory for Linda and I as it was our first Royal Caribbean ship and cruise for our 20th wedding anniversary in 2017. We sailed from San Juan a week after Hurricane Maria. When we flew into the airport it had no air conditioning and was on emergency generators.

Scarlet Lady / Live /Solo - Oct 18-22 2023
“Winter is coming”[*]
 
But before that happens, let’s go and chase some of that tropical sunshine!... 
 
After having sailed upon the Scarlet Lady four times now, I was on the fence as to whether there was even a reason to bother with another “review”... After some consideration, and since someone will be joining me this time around, I decided to compromise on a "limited Live"...

Live from the Spirit: Aegean Overtures
1: SILVERSEA FOR SKINFLINTS
Now, where was I?  Oh yes, I was in Athens at the Grande Bretagne Hotel, having breakfast overlooking an old ruin that long ago lost its marbles.  A bit like me. The previous day I had disembarked the Silver Cloud having sailed from Muscat via Djibouti, Saudi Arabia and Alexandria.  You may well have read my positively Homeric bloggy thing last April and May.  Well, here I am again in Athens about to embark the Silver Spirit, bound for, well, that’s only the half of it.  And about to embark on another bloggy thing. You can’t have one without the other.

LIVE from Mariner Bermuda & Perfect Day, Oct 13, 2023
Throughout the years I've read so many LIVE reviews while I'm waiting for my next cruise, and I thought it would be fun to give it a go and pay it forward to all those who have brightened my day through their musings.    This will be cruise #12 for us and we've sailed many itineraries more than once but this will be our first visit to Bermuda and our first visit to Perfect Day since the revamp. I visited Coco Cay back in 2005 and loved it then, I'm very excited to see what is in store for us with all the updates.

Live on Equinox - any questions?
I am on the Equinox now (10/8 - 10/14) and we don’t plan to get off the ship on either of the remaining port days, so I’ve got plenty of time to answer any questions fellow CC’ers might have.  We’re in a Royal Suite so we can address Retreat questions as well.  My initial observations as a first time Celebrity cruiser but many-time NCL and Princess passenger:
