  1. It sure is!! “Has anyone recently ordered and paid for a "made-to-order" freshly baked room service pizza delivery, with a fee, for "our" convenience (2 or 3 years ago) ... or, has that gone away & faded with lack of interest.” It was that $5 made to order room service pizza that my son wouldn’t eat, mking 😵
  2. My kid wouldn’t eat that “pizza” on our 1st Breakaway cruise in 2014...
  3. Really enjoying your review! Thank you for taking the time to share it with us. At least I know now I’m not the only one who got kicked off CC last night 😉 Looking forward to the Port pics... Cheers!
  4. Spectacular sailaway indeed! fog lifted, rain held off and the Hudson looked like glass 🙂 Fair winds and following seas to all... Thanks for updates on the Gem IT Mermaid. Have a great cruise!
  5. Never mind the roast beef... Wish O’Sheehan’s would bring back their chicken pot pie... IMHO it was really good. 🥳 Happy New Year to Everyone 🐔 Edited to add : I have to get back to work tomorrow and am pretty grouchy about it.
  6. Welcome home to a bright, sunny but chilly day in nyc. Thank you again for taking us on your relaxing (and WARM) cruise aboard the beautiful Gem this week. It’s been a fun way for us to escape😎 from a boring work week here before the holidays begin. Best wishes and a safe happy New Year to all. Off to find a good lunch, too.
  7. Enjoy your evening, mking. Safe sailing home. Love all the food photos! 🙂
  8. Safe sailing home, mking. Thank you for taking us along. Gem looks great. Wondering about the Gem Mermaid lately. Is she even still there outside the bridge observation, deck 11? Weather down there looks amazing. Here up north, not so great. Ice storms and snow squalls going on. Should all be gone by the time you get home 😎 ~Robin P.S. Happy and Healthy Holiday Wishes to You and Yours.
  9. Thanks for all the info/food pics/officers, etc etc. Seas and wind have calmed for you 😎 Don't see any pax sleeping in Bliss Lounge 😉 Will continue to follow your Voyage on PTZ.
  10. Sorry you got the cruise crud, sid.... hydrate hydrate hydrate. Vitamin Water. Mixed with tequila...ummm? No. Airbourne fizzy things. Hope you feel better soon.
  11. Bon Voyage mking. We were this close to booking this cruise a few weeks ago, but a no go with my work schedule/vacation hours. Will have to renew my passport and wait until the new year. Enjoy the choppy seas for the next day or so and your “escape” on the Gem from the cold wet weather here. Safe Sailing !! ~Robin
  12. Sweet...souvenirs made it home. Looks awesome. Chew gum, yawn or try the hydrogen peroxide. I have some in my bathroom closet but it’s kinda far away. At least it’s not the cruise crud!!
  13. Hope the San Juan souvenirs made it home ok. Take it easy, sid. Till next time....
  14. Sucks getting kicked to the curb after a cruise is over.... It was a fun ride. Thank you for taking us with you. Safe travels home.
  15. No way you could let us down, mr. sid. Safe sailing and travels home to you, kind sir. Our first cruise ever was aboard the CCL Legend, 2006, out of NYC (en why see) on the exact same itinerary. We were total newbies without CC. San Juan, Tortola and St. Thomas. Seeing this trip through your experiences and posts here has been great. thank you for all you have shared. Its been a pleasure and an honor to sail *with* you. Treat others the way you would like to be treated yourself. Amen my brother. ~Robin
