  1. I just posted the dailies for the Breakaway - Eastern Caribbean itinerary. We had the following: Day 2 - Dress up or not Day 3 - none Day 4 - Latin Fiesta Day 5 - 80's Day 6 - Glow Party Day 7 - Rock the Prom (Syd Norman's) Farewell Dance Party (Spice H2O)
  2. 2 thoughts: 1. The main complaint with the Norwegian app is that the connection drops and reconnects as you walk through the ship. (No, that's not how that's supposed to work). Instead, relaunch the app when you get where you are going (restaurant, show, etc.) and leave open. Your connection remains stable when you are in one spot. 2. If everyone feels like paying for the Social Media package (way more expensive than the app), then I HIGHLY recommend downloading and using WeChat. This app is huge in China and I can see why. My daughter and I used it when she was in Chi
  3. Oh trust me...you'll find a way to spend it. 🤣 Souvenirs, Bingo, Deal or No Deal, dinner show, new sandals after you go down flailing in front of witnesses near the pool because your current sandals apparently had no traction, excursions, ice pack for your bruises, macaroons, specialty coffees, specialty dining, etc.
  4. That is fantastic! Congratulations! I try to stay away from real sweets but sometimes you just gotta have something.

Here are a few I wrote down that interested me. Michelob Ultra - 2.5g carb Long island iced tea - sub diet or zero cola 2 shots vodka, sprite zero, lime Faux-hito: mint, lime, rum, sprite zero Spiced rum, zero or diet cola, lime Any liquor with seltzer water Pinot noir - 3.8g carbs I have no idea if the ship has a "zero" cola, but I'm crossing my fingers.
  6. LOL! Thank you! I can tell that you're not diabetic. Is the meat marinated? What seasonings are added to the vegetables? It has been a real eye opener to me to find out how many things have sugar hidden in them. Did you know that lemon-pepper seasoning has sugar in it? Plus there is the fact that sugar hides itself under a lot of different names - maltodextrin and dextrose are probably the 2 most common. It's even in supposedly "sugar-free" foods. A lot of which spike my blood sugar levels. This is one of the reasons I find it difficult to eat at a restaurant. At home, I have contr
  7. Thank you! I did have my account flagged, but I'll definitely contact the Access Office as well.
