  1. I have been keto on and off for over two years. With the ups and downs I am still down 20 lbs. I just booked a cruise for next January and my 45th (!) class reunion is this summer. So I have good reasons to be more conscientious with my keto eating. Today is my start day. I've done so much reading and youtube watching about keto that I think I know what to do and how to make it work for me. My main goal is to get off my cholesterol and high blood pressure meds. My goal weight is 30 pounds down from where I am now. I think I will contact my doctor when I lose the next 10 and see if she can start weaning me off these drugs. Congratulations to all you keto/LCHF people. I believe we are eating for health now instead of to feed our sugar/carb addictions. My last cruise I ate bread once, had dessert every night and after two weeks at sea had only gained 2 pounds. That will be my goal for the next cruise as well. I don't like alcohol so that is probably a big help. Keep the posts coming and Keto On!
  2. I used ez air on my January cruises. By checking with Princess online I got fare drops twice. It was very flexible. I was even able to fly to the cruise into FLL and got a good deal flying home from PBI. It was no problem with ez air. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  3. Yeah. It seemed odd to me that it would already be showing on a ship. I think I will assume that it will not be shown. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. Someone posted recently that Darkest Hour was shown on MUTS on Regal (or maybe Royal). Has it been shown on Crown? We’d really like to see that one. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. I sailed on the Eurodam on a Caribbean cruise. I did not like the ship. The interior is dark. The atrium is practically nonexistent. It seemed like a lot of the upper decks were closed off because they were set up with cabanas you had to pay for. The food was about the same as Princess. Loved the Crows Nest. Great views, nice little coffee snack bar. Excellent library offerings up there. Lovely views with comfy chairs. We had one of the very large inside cabins. They are a bargain.

  6. We sail on the the Crown next Saturday. Does anyone know if B729 has new mattresses? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. You can also re-fare by calling Princess. Even if you used a TA to book your cruise you can call Princess directly to discuss ez air changes. I got a price drop twice on my upcoming cruise air. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. The tsunami warning has been cancelled. Whew! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  9. I was cruising on the Star on a Friday the 13th when we sailed right through the Bermuda Triangle. Had a lovely day. (I am definitely Not superstitious). Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  10. I did not think about flashing my preferred boarding pass to the door minders. I just may try it there to see what response I get. I will report back on how it goes. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. I have a copy of my boarding pass on my phone as a back-up in the unlikely event that I lose the one I printed. Have any of you tried checking in with an email version of your boarding pass on your phone? I may give this a try on my January 20 cruise on the Crown using my printed boarding pass as the back-up.

  12. Can you tell me at which pier the ship docked? Both for embarkation and disembarkation? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. How about the contrary ferry? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. To the OP: As a member of the rollcall for your cruise I wonder if you’d be willing to give the group a tour? It might be a good cruise to do a cabin crawl. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  15. And here’s another vote for the goat cheese soufflé. Thanks for all the other recommendations. I will have to venture further from my usuals and give many of these a try. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
