  1. Yes thanks hoopster for creating this. I have a good photo of you at dancin with officers on my computer as well as monster mash. I only learned who you were after the cruise. This Ovation cruise was very special for it was FIRST visit by Ovation, thr one off itinerary, and best weather. Later cruises did not go up as far as we did in Endicott. I also think Captain enjoyed this cruise very much He was very enjoyable at captain corner. For me I y Point was highlight
  2. here is a photo of the plaque hanging near the customer services desk of the ship being born in 2016. also some fun Two 70 robo boxes entertainment and presentations like the kid who who the contest for the statehood flag
  3. aw yes the last day. well here is a photo of the crew member who got to cut the cake since it was also her birthday
  4. and don't forget the many wonderful artwork on all the stair wells. Here is one I liked
  5. and on WED the 22nd I took photo of ceiling near Esplande as well as what the show was going to be that evening
  6. I guess I would but I would not cover my nose so I could smell the air, and I would have an opening for utensil to shove some lovely food in my mouth. Won't even try sunbathing as I would not want a stupid tan line on upper face the thing is masks make it hard to chat and smile with folks. I wonder if even the Captain would want to pose for photos. Next 6-8 months will be interesting.
  7. not only a nasty comment to the rest of us but wishing a great cruise line line RCI to go into bankruptcy is just plain mean. Go away now and Buh Bye
  8. I guess it depends on availability of ports and when repatriation ends. Ships are not docking but are shuttling. I think crew removal has to be completed first. Also, flights home and safety too. Not to mention getting replacement officers to sign new contracts too. Officers might have to stay on much longer than expected for many reasons. But at least they are safe and getting paid. RCI has 5 ships in Pacific away from the rest of the fleet. Those 5 (Quantum, Ovation, Spectrum, Voyager, and Radiance), could have interesting situation. Waiting to hear about Aug or Sept Alaska. Also Australia for November season and Asian market.
  9. and May 18th ended with a good concert in the main theater. A salute to Celine Dion.
  10. For now I will just post the Captain's right hand as he was explaining how he turns the ship. Since the other photo of him is a close up of his face and instruments on the bridge, I don't think I will post out of repsect. But he was grinning at someone besides me and not looking at me directly. I am also posting the glass window in the floor they use to look down while docking. I took this tour on either the 15th or 16th can't remember. Sad today I would have been in Venice Italy with the Vision of the Seas. I am booked for new Odyssey next year out of FLA and also doing Greece (I hope) and in 2022 once again in FLA. I think that ship will be wonderful with new stuff.
  11. I don't plan on coming on each day and posting. Besides you only invited the Lord of RCI himself so I will let you both have the fun going forward. I am not that interesting but I do have a great up close photo of the Captain on the Bridge tour and another one with his own hand on the controls when we were on the port side wing.
  12. I was supposed to be on the Symphony April 25th. When they emailed me I accepted the 125% and then I waited. I got the FCC a week ago but have not gotten the credit to my card for tips and tax. But worst yet, I am waiting for HAL to refund the cruise they cancelled for June and the amount 4k. I am hearing they will take 60-90 days and won't start process until the week of the original sail date. Lots of angry folks on HAL threads. RCI is doing a better job but I supposed I will call to check out my $233. I will say American Airlines and WDW Parks give the fastest refunds.
  13. 0h and the one and most likely time Ovation will go to Icy Point. Here is my photo of that day Ovation mid day with Northstar up. Later I went up as well. Here is my photo of in port. it looks over the small town
  14. I was on that ship when she sailed out and here is my photo LEAVING Vancouver May 13th Monday evening. The funnels were down as we went under. One of the truly best cruises I ever did and for Ovation one of its best as well. Very special. Today I was supposed to be on the Vision of the seas heading into Venice on 13th. Oh well
