  1. Tonight’s show is magic 🪄 Matt McGurk. (As someone might remember… he was her last week and we had our doses of him on Sil😂) But as the good girl I am… we will give him a go again😇 Cheers to evening chic! 😘😘 yes 😅 (I will give you a cheeky kiss 💋 pic😘) 🥰Happy Wife, Happy LIFE🥰
  2. this was arrived for Concierge class. it was a reminder of the time and place of the party 🎉
  3. Mr arrived upstairs for lunch a little after 14.00. So I joined him on the terrace. It was Italian 🇮🇹 themed lunch. Something for everyone😅 After the luncheon I returned to sun deck and Mr went downstairs to take a little session of work. The ship is not heavy rocking. But you can feel the motion of the ocean. It started early morning and calmed down a bit after 13.00. And you can see it on some guests and crew that they are not very happy about it🫥 (unfortunately the Queen would have said it’s to much for her taste and sea level) At 16.40 I decided it was time to go downstairs. I have a tricky problem for my captain’s club points. I have tried to solve it via shoreside but it will not be solved…. So I thought that if I go downstairs to CC/Concierge close to early dinner, it will probably be quiet. YES 👍🏻 BINGO As some might remember my Captain’s Club number was not registered onboard on Edge for the 14-night from Rome to Dubai. When we arrived my card had a star and no status. Mr on the other hand was registered and the sailing documentation had my CC number inside😑🙄🫠 So we rushed directly to CC to get if fixed and solved. They added it and could not understand how this happened. Well, after returning home my points for Suez did not arrive. Mr points arrived. The points for Dubai-Singapore arrived… But the sailing was in my list of my page as sailed🤥🫤 So I send an email containing the booking number, picture of the cruise cards and picture proof of me walking the gangway in Rome to shoreside Captains club and received an email saying it would be fixed… Another 6 weeks and no points shown up. New email and I received a message to swipe away my CC in my profile and re add my cc number…. Well, I have tried on Safari, Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Edge etc on my laptop, iPhone, iPad, Mr laptop etc. But it is impossible to remove it and save. It loads until it 90% loading and then it just crashes. So I have tried for weeks to use theirs “fix” I even tried her onboard in hopes that it would be solved😬 NADA, Njet, Nein, Nei, No! So now I’m playing the ball 🎱 back to Captain’s Club onboard and hopefully they will get it fixed. It’s not the most important in the world…. I will not be Zenith😂 We are far away😁 But this sailing was not just 3-points😝 Today’s canapés had arrived Tonight is evening chic🥳🤩 (it’s only 2 during both cruises?)
  4. I was awake around 6.30 but was not ready to get up and out😂🤭 I just wanted to stay a little longer in bed. So I read the newspaper, answered some emails and just took it easy. Around 08.30 Mr moved out of bed. We agreed on Captains Club breakfast in Tuscan. I had to charge my phone🤪 (I know… how could I forget to put it to charge during the night🤭) So no pics of our sharing ultimate plate or Mr juice line up today😂😂😂 After breakfast Mr went to the Homeoffice aka the balcony on the ocean 🤭😌🤩👍🏻😎 And I decided for a walk. My body was not in mood for a fast 60 minute power walk. So it was a 2h workout walk in a decent speed. (Still faster then average speed of my fellow walkers😝) After my little walking session I stopped by Mast Bar to get some club soda, ice and fruit of orange+ lime. While I was sitting there, the captain came on… a new 🚨🚨❤️‍🩹 5 round of the cruise. Fingers crossed for the person❤️ After the walk and my little “bar” session I went downstairs to change and collect my phone. Then it was time for a little rest on a sun lounger😎👍🏻 Mr wanted to do a little bit more work before he will join me😘😘
  5. thank you❤️ it’s not just us that had a similar experience😌 We are “back” in steerage class😂😂🤭 And we have a great time on EQ❤️
  6. Tonight’s menu The starters are good 👍🏻 but the mains are a bit blah 😒 for my taste. We decided for the beef carpaccio, apple pear salad, escargot and drum fish. It was good. Dessert Mr wanted the apple 🍏 and some strawberry ice cream. I went for cherry jubilee. The dessert was good. My coffee arrived as dishwasher today🫣 I had a sip of the espresso macchiato and said to Mr…. Dishwasher water at its best🤭 Mr was just waiting for it😝 he saw the cup and knew what this was…… Our assistant waiter was coming rushing over, she had delivered the coffee. But she knew that this cup was not looking good 🧐 On EQ all special coffee for the MDR is made in Passport Bar. The main waiter or assistant waiter must walk out to Passport Bar and order the coffee from the staff there. So they serve what they receive from them…. Our assistant waiter had tried to explain that the cup she received to bring back to us was not looking okay🧐🧐🧐 So she was just waiting to get it back to supervisor and get me a new cup… So my cup of coffee was delivered, and she came running to pick up the cup when she saw I had declared it dishwasher😝 Before we managed to say cake, it was on a silver serving tray and on the road to supervisor for viewing and collecting of a new cup. The new cup arrived asap. It was perfect, espresso and a spoon of milk foam on top. And it tasted fresh and delicious! After the dinner, it was bedtime 🥱
  7. Yah Man! What happened after return to the ship? Mr wanted to have a little lunch. So off to OV around 14.00 we walked. He found something tempting to eat and I had a little gyros 🇬🇷 (you see? I’m warming up to my Greek adventure💙) After lunch Mr run back to work. I on the other hand had a pier runner view from the terrace😅😂 I wanted a little snack, so a soft serve 🍦 was calling my name😍 After the ice cream I went up to a packed SunSet for sail away. I had a glass of wine and just chilled in the shade. It was a little rain shower. So no stress to go downstairs… Captain came on to announce a new medical emergency 🚨 it was very close to us. So I cancelled my plan to go downstairs… Closer to 18.00 I went downstairs to shower and prepare for the Captain’s Club senior officers party at 19.45🎉 Mr said it had been full activity of people running in the hallway. So he was just sitting still and waiting for it to cool down. Fingers crossed for the guest❤️❤️‍🩹 and a speedy recovery. Today’s canapés had arrived: We went up to Sunset before the party. It was quiet and peaceful. When it was close to 19.45 we moved onward to Sky Lounge. It was party as usual. Drinks, canapés and live music. After the party it was dinner time!
  8. It was no mosquitos 🦟 🙂 The guide said why and explained the reason. So it’s very safe to visit St Kitts compared to St Lucia😊 I don’t expect my fellow tour members to be athletic fit. But if you can’t lift your feet 👣 properly and can’t walk in the stair onboard…. Maybe a rainforest walk is not the best option for you🤔👍🏻 Specially when the tour says strenuous🫣 But it was a great experience if you look behind the not fit walkers🌳🌳🌳
  9. I’m back on the 🚢 Al Bacio was calling me☕️ So my tour 🌳🌿🥾🇰🇳 (I’m aloud to hope for the wild tour) But we all know this is X and the average age is not 20…. So it might be more of a leisure walk😎 Yep, that’s what we are doing today! First thing first…. The group was 13 people. When we walked from the ship to the tour guide my eyes 👀 detected a participant in Birkenstock😳🤔🫣 Hmmm…. This is interesting. We had a “safari” jeep driving us to the location where we went walking. It’s a 20.minute drive to the Wingfield estate. The scenery is beautiful and the views from the car was 👍🏻 The walk was a slow rainforest walk, it took around 2h. I would gladly walked longer and faster. It went in an extremely slow speed. Since it’s uneven and people were not able to walk faster and prepared for this type of walking. So we had 4 people on different times falling on the ground. Scrubbing knees, half twisted knees and ankles🫣😰 You could tell they were not used to walk on uneven surfaces, dry leaves and trails. It seemed as it went okay 👌🏻 but I was on toes for a big ground smash 💥 It says strenuous in the tour description…. Sometimes I think not everyone is reading this🫥 Back to our walk & talk 🗣️ our guide was talking about everything in the forest 🌳 the trees, the forest and animals. He was great🤓 I would love to do the other tour, the tour with more climbing and more hiking 🥾 After the walk, we returned to our starting point. It was 2 choices of lemonade and a piece of banana bread. Then we returned to port.
  10. It happens from time to time. it was planned holiday and everything was supposed to go well🥰 But technology in critical infrastructure can go wrong 😑😅🤓 So as a super tech, it might happen that you need to help out from distance😇 The good thing is that we are used to this😂😇 I have helped out Mr in a full ball gown and he in a tuxedo, when something mega urgent happened. ( he was on technical assistance 📞) and we were going to our friends wedding and they called and said it can’t wait….. Well, you see the picture: Mr & Mrs “Smith” fixing a critical doorway at a location😂😂 YES, that’s us😂😂 We did make the wedding🥰🤪🥳 Yes, that’s us🤣🤣🤣 So a day on the balcony for Mr will not ruin my day or he’s day🙃
  11. I can report that we should have switched tours😂😂😂 Mine today was the leisure tour😝 it was a nice walk and the forest is beautiful and green🌳🌿🌳 The guide said that they had the other tour. But X had said that they would not offer the other anymore via the ship…. (Something tells me they received to many complaints or broken bones 🦴 in return to port😝) it was a bit uneven walking (it is a forest 🌳)
  12. Rise & Shine! St Kitts & Nevis calling Mr is sleeping a bit longer😅 So I’m off to the buffet for a little breakfast before departure for my walking tour. I bit crazy crowded😅 but I survived. The banana bread was 😋😋😋 (had to test it) No coffee or OJ service on the balcony😝 it’s the “lost kingdom” 😂😂😂 So I walked downstairs to Al Bacio. The line was loooong🤪 Breakfast offerings in Al Bacio
  13. Dinner We had to eat😂😂 Today’s menu: We had the salad, gumbo, talapia, gnocchi and flank steak. The starters were delicious 😋 For main course we wanted to see if the gnocchi was a bad day at work last week…. So we ordered a plate for sharing. The gnocchi was much more tasty this week. The sauce was tasty and you could taste the cheese. The flank steak was really good 😊 the meat tasted really good and it was perfectly cooked for my liking. The talapia fish was okay according to Mr. Dessert I ended up getting apple pie and Mr had the crème brûlée. Then it was off to bed 🛌 ( I have a early morning meeting time for my tour)
  14. Danny Cannis delivered a potpourri of Sinatra, Steve Wonder etc. Backed by the orchestra. It was a good show and it’s always a winner💙🙂 In grand foyer Cheaza was doing a pop-up performance. Full house and standing ovation 👏🏻 Tomorrow I have “secured” my day😂😅 Mr is going to work for a few hours…. So I said, Good for You! I will do something😆 So here we are…. I have booked the rainforest tour in St Kitts. This boots 🥾 are made for walking! (And yes, the transport time is only 21.minutes according to google maps🧐) So fingers crossed for a perfect day on tour in the forest😇
  15. Mr was working and I just relaxed on the bed after lunch. (The food coma is not underestimated😜) It’s nice to just relax also💙 We left from Martinique 🇲🇶 before our time. All onboard was 17.30 and we left at that time😅 So I guess everyone was early back😂😂😂 We could see on the tv/map channel that they had a sail-away party on the helipad. (Hey👋🏻 are we winners of sail-in this cruise😜😂) Then it was time to get ready for the evening💙 Tonight’s show is Danny Cannis
  16. After my little stop in Al bacio, I went upstairs to say hello to Mr. It was 13.15. He was working on the balcony. He said that the ship had a new medical emergency 🚨 just after I left the ship. Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery ❤️‍🩹 Mr was ready for lunch. The OV offered French 🇫🇷 food as today’s special. I had a little plate of hoisin chicken and fried rice. Mr went all in on the French themed food😂 we had some cheese 🧀 for dessert. After the lunch break on the terrace we returned to the cabin. Mr needed to work a little bit more🤓 Today’s canapés had arrived:
  17. Glassblowing is really fun🤩 it’s a creative activity! I am due to my volunteer work, able to blow glass twice a year at Hadeland Glassverk at home🤩 So I have several vases and hanging balls blown and handpicked colours of my self😌 So it’s fun to watch their work onboard! but I’m blowing at home;) Fingers crossed for a great Baltic cruise! Hopefully the weather is good😇😎☀️
  18. Around 12.15 I called it for the day. Time to return onboard. A very underwhelming day for me🤣🤣😎 On the positive side, no big 🤩🤩🤩 things Mr didn’t attend🥰 I stopped in Al Bacio to have a little espresso macchiato and soda water. It’s on days like this you really miss a functional roll call on CC for your sailing⚓️ And I have 2 goals for 2024! I need to learn how to play bridge & mahjong🤓
  19. After breakfast Mr went to the office on the balcony😎🤓 and I decided to go for a walk and take the ferry to Plage Anse. Well, well…. Welcome to 🇫🇷 France🤣🤣 The city is all locked and closed. It’s a Sunday🙃 On the ferry site it said that the ferry to Plage Anse was temporary closed until further notice due to a broken dock. So it was impossible to use the dock. So I had rerouted my day to Pointe du Bout and one of the beaches over there. I left the ship little before 09.00. It’s no grand tour shopping area for last minute tour guests. Very limited. I stopped by the tourist information tent and the lady said unfortunately the ferry operator is on strike🤪🫠 they have had an ongoing strike for 5 weeks, so all ferry’s from Port-de-France to the close by areas is cancelled. Yes 👍🏻 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 That’s the grumpy French we know from home🤣🤣🤣😜 So plan b… Check for last minute tours and plage Saline. Well, that was a BIG no from el cheapo ME🥵🫣🫠🤪💰💸💵💶 Number 1, I’m 1. So insanely priced. Number 2. It’s hilarious expensive on this island. All is priced in Euros €€€ and the dollar is very expensive for us due to horrible NOK. But the €€€€ EUR is even worse😰🫠🫡🫣 SO I’m not spending 400€ to get to Plage Saline. Sorry! The tours offered by the ship were not super exciting before departure. So therefore we didn’t book something via the ship. So I took a grand walk in the completely dead city centre😎😆 The church ⛪️ was in Sunday service mode. On the positive side, Martinique is ranked as home for my phone(since it eu/Schengen). So I can call as usual and use data. So I called my grandfather to tell him we were still alive and ask how he was doing💙 He was tired of the snow and was hoping for better weather and walking conditions outside. Plage Francaise is the only beach in walking distance from the ship. It’s only 10-minutes from the ship by foot. Lots of tourists from the ship ended up here😅😎 It’s not the most beautiful place on the island. But the lack of the ferry service is a big problem…. Close to the port, it’s a souvenir shopping area. They were open. But the vendors made it clear they wanted the day off… No big bargains or haggling today😆💶💶
  20. Fort-de-France, Martinique 🇲🇶 calling! Mr was surprisingly early awake😅 We arrived early and ship was cleared already at 07.49😎 This was a new message said during clearance information: all non European/schengen nationals need to bring your passport ashore🙃 eu/schengen guests can bring identification cards. Well thank you Schengen! 🙌🏻🇳🇴 We watched the docking operation from our balcony. The church bells 🔔 started ringing at 07.00. Mr wanted MDR breakfast and I totally agree on that🙌🏻 We arrived before the crowd. I had my BYO breakfast special😋 Poached eggs, English muffins and salmon😋😋😋 (at some point I need to have at least one morning of this) Mr had his menu, omelette and cottage cheese with fruit.
  21. It’s a pleasure to follow your journey! Really looking forward to be back on Infinity later this year🙌🏻👍🏻 Greek 🇬🇷 isles are something special💙
