  1. Perhaps she went for breakfast, if it was offered. Then it's free. Or maybe she had the Unlimited Dining Package, which can be used at JR. Otherwise, you get charged.
  2. I continue to get e-mails regarding my 2023 cruise on the Apex. Of course, I have no such cruise scheduled!
  3. Actually, that $169 rate was for a park and cruise package, which included the free breakfast and 7 nights parking. I'm figuring I might have to pay for one extra night of parking.
  4. Thanks Jamie! Wondering if, since you didn't seem to like their shuttle service, it would be better to take an Uber from the Hotel to the port. Difference in room rate is $249 versus $169. So basically $80 for the shuttle ($40 each way). If the hotel is 13 miles from the port, wonder how much an Uber would be?
  5. @JamieLogicalThanks for the review. I was interested n learning a little more about the Hilton Garden Inn. In March of next year, my daughter and I are driving from NH for a cruise out of NY on the Getaway. When I first looked, Trinity Reservations hade several stay/park/shuttle hotels available, but now they have none. I also looked at the Hilton Garden Inn website and I couldn't seem to find any mention of parking while cruising or a shuttle to the port. Can you enlighten me? Thanks!
  6. At least it was a woman TSA officer, and the interesting part was that she had to run her hands inside my waistband. Only thing I can think of is some sort of mesh or something from a hernia operation I had many years ago. But I've never triggered one of these machines before.
  7. Following along again! Having both you and Jeff and Patti on the same cruise should be lots of fun! At Logan in Boston, my crotch area set off the detector - no idea why, but I got the full pat-down. On my return flight, at Newark, it was my shoulder/neck area. Huh?
  8. Looking forward to another one of your reviews. My very first cruise was in 2018 on the Summit, and I have two more scheduled for next year. So I'm looking forward to your review of the ship.
  9. Not just Virgin that has a wonky IT department. After I booked a 2023 cruise for myself and my daughter, a few days later I got an e-mail from Celebrity, my e-mail address, my daughter's name, thanking me for booking this cruise, only it wasn't the cruise I had even booked - both the date and the ports were wrong! And for some reason, I continue to get promo e-mails from celebrity at my secondary e-mail address, only addressed to someone not with my name! That has been going on for more than 2 years now!
  10. That Kroger pizza actually doesn't look half bad! But I'm sure it's not on a par with Houston's! Enjoy another night of fine dining!
  11. Sid, glad you made it home safely. And it's still great that home means something that is truly yours (well, except for the little matter of a mortgage!).
  12. I gave up yesterday, but called the Blue Chip Club number this morning at 8:17 AM, got right through, no hold time whatsoever.
  13. Since no one else guessed, I'm thinking the answer is "your birthday suit". Great review, but I don't think Virgin is for everyone. Not for me for sure. There's just some aesthetic about the ship that doesn't appeal to me. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it's there. Not to mention the fact it's only 5 nights long. I'm not traveling anywhere for less than 7. But for you, Sid, with your love of what I call exotic foods, totally up your alley.
  14. Thursday afternoon around 4, a two hour wait and was still waiting when I finally hung up to make dinner.
  15. Sid, I see you wore your famous (or is that infamous?) shirt onto the ship! Glad you made it on.
  16. Sid, yesterday was vintage Sid in Miami - great food, drink and building pictures! Let's hope everything works out and today, at noon, begins an epic Sid adventure (in only a good way!).
  17. Pretty sure Sid's let us know that everything Virgin is done through their app, can't use a regular computer.
  18. Glad you made it to Miami, but just no to the grasshoppers and ants! Yuck! (I know it's your kind of thing, so enjoy!)
  19. Sid, have a safe trip to Florida - can't wait for the pictures from your walkabout later!
  20. Following right along - can't wait until you actually board!
  21. Congrats! When are you sailing? I have 4 bids cancelled and one bid pending which cannot be cancelled or modified. Hoping that means I win!
