  1. Myself and my husband are booked on a March 27th sailing on the Silhouette. We are in our 30s and very grateful to have great health. I am not concerned about getting the virus I am concerned about quarantines, insurance implications and potentially being stranded by our government as they have stated. We're probably going to play this out until the very last minute we can cancel and see how things progress. However, I really feel like this is an over reaction by our government, lets remember there's been 1 death in Canada.
  2. This will be our first time with a balcony room and I so have to go out to look at the moon one night when I wake up. Love this idea!!
  3. A scavenger hunt sounds like a fun time!
  4. I couldn’t agree more, I’m already researching the list of books I’m bringing with me! I am enjoying reading everyone’s responses, dreaming of relaxing days at sea.
  5. Ever since we booked our cruise a few weeks ago I have been fascinated with cruise vlogs and trip reports. I love seeing how people spend their time on-board. Thought it might be fun to start a post asking folks what your ideal sea day looks like? What’s your favourite way to spend your day? What activities do you like the most? This cruise will be the most sea days we’ve ever had on a cruise, we have 4! Honestly, I am looking forward to them the most. I am looking forward to a good gym workout followed by lots of pool time / reading, maybe checking out trivia events with my husband.

    Day in Aruba

    This will be our first time in Aruba - we’re not much for shore excursions rather like to make our own adventure. I’m thinking about heading to Eagle Beach once we get off the ship via the beach bus or a taxi. From what I’ve read this beach would be more of our style. However, there doesn’t seem to be many food options there so I’m thinking when we get hungry to head to Palm Beach for food, Edwardos looks amazing and I know hubby would like Scott’s Brats. Followed by few more hours of beach time at Palm Beach then finishing our day by checking out the local craft beer brewery Fireson which is
  8. Really enjoyed reading your blog. Myself and my husband are headed to the silhouette next month and I will definitely be trying some of the wines you suggested. I love hearing how others spend their time on a cruise. Your blog made me excited for our upcoming trip - thank you!
  9. Perfect. Thank you for the quick response.
  10. We received the four perks promo with our booking but still able to purchase the drink package when I login to the cruise planner. Is this normal? I don't see anywhere other then my invoice from our TA that we received the 4 perks but the onboard credit is there so I assume it went through. Just wanted to be sure there was no issue.
