  1. Bob, You were the first person from the cruise that we met. We were thrilled when you and Betsy found each other and even more so now. This news brought tears to both of us. We wish you both many years of happiness and love. Lee and Mary
  2. Does anyone have room for 2 of us on a tour on Boracay Island? We are looking to explore the island and perhaps do some beachcombing.
  3. It was totally my pleasure and I am sure you are going to get a ton of mileage from it!

  5. Sir Bob! Apparently, he really loves tuna. And now he's a Helluva Shellback! 20190210_111258.mp4
  6. On this trip out of the 24 days so far, we have had 3 or 4 that were kind of rough. Past performance is no guarantee of the future though.
  7. Today I chartered a fishing yacht (https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g150791-d3657829-Reviews-Double_Trouble_Sport_Fishing-Manzanillo_Pacific_Coast.html) with one of our ATW cruise mates and this is what I caught. Blue Marlin, 9'3", about 220-250 pounds, took 40 minutes to land. About 8 miles off the coast of Manzanillo. I gave the meat to the captain and mate. I'm having it mounted. Thanks for letting me brag. I'm still giggling over it.
  8. Ignorance is bliss. We were there yesterday and had a great day. Toured the Flor de Cana Rum distillery. Amazing tasting and very interesting tour. Well worth the time.
  9. The box it came in wasn't so big. Here is the link for it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XHLDGN8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04__o00_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. Here is a picture of the PH suite from the doorway. Now back to lunch, lecture, massage, happy hour, dinner, then happy hour again, sleep...and do it all again!
  11. Lisa, The new PH suites are so much better than the old ones in my opinion. They are arranged much more efficiently and seem roomier. We are in 8023. The walls are largely magnetic with variations in strength. The edges are not magnetic. We are using a hanging shoe bag in the closet and an over the door version on the bathroom door. That combined with stashing suitcases and storage boxes under the bed and an inexpensive metal frame 4 cloth drawer unit from Amazon means our cabin is pretty uncluttered despite my ridiculous overpacking. My bride brought a cardboard magazine holder and we could have used 2 of them to hold documents, tablet, etc. Here is a picture of the room taken from the balcony. Hope it helps. Let me know if you need more indo. The Internet service is also much better, although not the same as fiber into the home. 😉
  12. I just checked a ship locator app and Insignia is not going to dock until 4:30 pm tomorrow. Looks like a lot of waiting tomorrow. No way are they going to turn it around in less than, oh I dunno, 6 hours or so? Patience is the word for tomorrow.
  13. Lisa, Thanks for starting this thread. I look forward to meeting you in person at the meet and greet after you board. I am also looking forward to making 11 new friends Thursday evening at Brasserie 8.5 in NYC. It should be a fun way to get our adventure started. I plan to reconfirm our head count tomorrow with the restaurant, so if there are any folks who want to join at the very last minute, it is fast approaching. Lee
