  1. I'm not sure if ImaginationCruiseBride still checks on this site, but I'd also appreciate the welcome letter! My address is ginger.betson@gmail.com. Thank you in advance!
  2. I'm so glad I found this board! I also emailed ImaginationCruiseBride for the letter....I bet she didn't know how valuable this would be to so many people! There has been such good information shared here - thanks to all who have participated!
  3. YAY! You know I love your reviews! This time, I will have to catch up afterwards as I will be on Lady O at the exact same time ๐Ÿ™‚ Safe travels to you and can't wait to read all of your jokes/perspectives and laughter - happy cruising!
  4. I havenโ€™t yet, but their other emails have come late in the day so Iโ€™m not concerned. Iโ€™m not a mind reader or a fortune teller, but I do have stake in the game - Iโ€™m on the May 5th sailing. I still feel very positive that itโ€™s a go for us, with or without the Aqua Theater. Some people tell me Iโ€™m a โ€œPollyannaโ€, but thatโ€™s ok, Iโ€™m trying to focus on the positive. If we cruise without the AT, Iโ€™m ok with that too - we will still be on a cruise! ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. In the big scheme, I know the cruise industry is a business and they are in business to make money....but shame on NCL for clearly increasing their costs (and significantly!) due to the misfortune of others. I am happy to hear some displaced Oasis cruisers may have been able to quickly rebook - but geesh, an increase like that is hard to swallow. Hope you enjoy your cruise, I've heard that Breakaway is beautiful!
  6. We are also on the May 5th sailing....fingers crossed! We are flying from the DC area to Barcelona on May 2nd-3rd....my biggest fear would be RC cancelling as we get closer to the sail date and then we wouldn't have enough time to re-book anything for that week. But I'm going to try and maintain only positive thoughts. I definitely can't complain - I feel absolutely terrible for the people who've had their cruises cancelled ๐Ÿ˜ž
  7. I'm supposed to be on the May 5th sailing out of Barcelona ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Keeping my fingers crossed Lady O is ready to go by then - even if she has a few dings and cosmetic injuries, I'd still love to sail on her. She's a great ship!
  8. Closing another wonderful review - thank you for all of your time, information and humor! And even more meaningful, the beautiful tribute to Jim/Trainman. He would be so flattered.... I will be sailing on Lady O when you are on Lady A - but I can guarantee that I will read every post as soon as I get back home! Will you post a link to your new review here?
  9. I do recall you mentioning bad news during your last review - I'm so sorry for the loss of your cousin. ๐Ÿ˜ž
  10. Wow....so many initial thoughts, and you haven't left yet! 1. The fact that you have dedicated this to Trainman is overwhelmingly touching. It brought a tear to my eyes. So many of us followed him throughout the years, the passing of his wife, his cruises, his good fortune of meeting and marrying Judith, his move to the country and his love for his country and animals. It's apparent that you were a friend/fan also. Thank you - and can't wait to see a Trainman sandwich! 2. I love all of your reviews, I'm so excited to follow along. I love your sense of humor - and this will help carry me through until my next cruise. I actually got a little giddy when I saw your announcement on your last review (look of embarrassment). 3. We are going on our first Mediterranean cruise on Oasis in May, the same dates you are going on your May cruise. That means I will have to do massive catching up when I return ๐Ÿ˜‰ 4. Thanks in advance for all you're about to do for those of us following along - safe travels, smooth sailing and many happy liquid refreshments!
  11. Thanks so much! I've read a few of your other reviews but unfortunately missed the last one. I will definitely be reading for enjoyment ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. Thanks so much for taking us along - what a great break from my normal work week! Loved your sense of humor and outlook, and already looking forward to the next review. Any chance you'll post here when you start your new review? At least then we can be notified so we can follow along again. Now I'm going to go back and read your previous review which I unfortunately missed when it was live!
  13. That's just rude! Shame on them. Some people can take fun out of anything....but I am sure your attitude won't let this interrupt your good time. Have a great day in port!
  14. I'm late to the show....but here with bells on and oh so excited. I've followed your reviews before and lets just say that I loved them ๐Ÿ˜‰ Apparently I missed the last two, so that will be my light reading for the upcoming weekend. But back to this cruise - I'm now caught up and I have to say how much I enjoy your reviews. Not only because they are informative - but they make me laugh! We have the exact same sense of humor. As I was reading through this over lunch - I literally laughed out loud a few times. My eyes may have even gotten a little moist ๐Ÿ˜ I'm booked for my first Mediterranean cruise next May on Lady O - I think we are the first full cruise after dry dock. I've been on Oasis, Allure and Harmony before and can't wait to come back "home". Until then, I will live vicariously and comically through you. Thanks in advance and keep up the humor!!
  15. Whew....due to unfortunate and ridiculous work obligations (:')), I missed a few days and am finally caught up. Great pictures, Chris! I love the pics of the chocolate bar and the pictures of the ocean. It was also cool to see the pics of other ships in St. Maarten and San Juan. Hope you're having a fantastic day - look forward to staying up to date with the postings now!
  16. A few thoughts: 1. YAY! I found the live thread! 2. Thanks in advance - this is your vacation but we all are thrilled you're taking time to share with us! 3. The pics so far are amazing. Great job :) 4. Bar....what bar? Have you ever been to a bar?? ;) Enjoy and smooth sailing!
  17. Thanks so much for this topic. We are on our first cruise out of Barcelona (so have no idea what to expect) and also worried about what time we should book our return flight. The cruise is supposed to be back in Barcelona at 5:00 AM. If we book a noon flight, it sounds like we should have enough time to disembark and get to the airport with time for check-in and security. Have others had recent experience, and felt comfortable with this time frame?
