  1. I'm with you on this! The trivia posts strike me as both tone deaf (for cruisers waiting for refunds) and cold-hearted (for crew who are not yet home). I find them incredibly offensive 😞
  2. ohmigoodness 😄 😄 😄 You're gonna need it 😄
  3. That's truly heartwarming! Have you considered offering him some sort of deposit now for a future tour, at a date to be determined, within the next X # of years? Supporting him now might make a lot of difference to a small operator. Just a thought ❤️
  4. I heard some of the Alberta premier's news conference and Alberta is instituting stricter requirements for anyone arriving internationally. I presume that would include from the US. I missed most of it (tuning out politicians is in my genes 😉 ) but there will more tightly controlled quarantines is the gist I got from it.
  5. We got the veg garden mostly done over the weekend. And I do have a Devil's Food Cake mix in the house. Thanks @richwmn
  6. Sending big hugs to towhee and Av8rix @towhee and @Av8rix Maybe next year we can all sail a 14 day Alaska cruise together. Right now, we'd be eating some sort of snacks in our hotel room, looking out at whatever view we got in the "cheap" room at the hotel, and waiting for the bellman to collect our bags from our hotel room.
  7. That brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for taking good care of the Maasdam for us. Any last minute tips? I hope you've enjoyed your cruise to the Great Land ❤️ Tonight we'd be at Joe Fortes' for dinner. Tomorrow morning I would be at Starbucks when it opens to grab a coffee and walk down in the pre-dawn light to watch the Maasdam dock.
  8. I was part of a mass layoff that saw several thousand people laid off. The people who were still employed at the end of it all suffered at least as much as, probably more than, those of us who were let go. The "survivors" have guilt, and they are expected to do the work of 4 or 5 people, often being demoted in the process, working for less money than they were accustomed to. I'd see the "survivors" out and about occasionally, and every one of them had aged 10 years in a year, were exhausted, and many had developed serious health problems. So really, everyone is in trouble in one way or another. 😞
  9. Thank you. Seriously, THANK YOU 😄
  10. We should be at the airport, waiting to board a flight to Vancouver, for 2 nights at the Pan Pacific before boarding the Maasdam to Alaska ❤️
  11. I am with Mae on this 😉 Thanks for the report.
  12. Passengers. The new CEO will need to bring passengers back.
  13. I've been meaning to mention this previously. I really REALLY like how you accessorize 😉
  14. YES!!!! Finally I have permission 😉 Thank you 😄
