Cool Cruiser

Cool Cruiser (2/15)

  1. I really don't think we can all intend to eat together all the time. Those of us who are platinum will have more dinners in the specialty restaurants, so..... My screen name came from that I am a residential Plans Examiner, Residential and Commercial Energy Plans Examiner and Inspector, and also design homes. There have been a lot of building plans in my career. Secondary is the cruise planning, which I have also done.
  2. We will see what we can do. We got the basic internet package with booking, and don't plan to get more minutes. But we will do the best we can!!!
  3. Well, the Ma'am are going to cruise together again! This Friday Screenma'am, Planma'am, Medicalma'am and our DHs will be getting on the NCL Prima out of Galveston for a week in the Western Caribbean. DH's cousin, who has cruised with us before, and 3 of her friends will be joining us, too. (Our 4th sister isn't able to join us. In fact the only time all 4 sisters cruised together was our sisters' cruise out of Tampa on the Sun, when we had one of the sought-after corner aft balconies. Oh, what a cruise!! We should have done a review after that one; I would have titled it "want another bottle of wine with that?!!) But I digress. We 3 sisters haven't cruised together since our Canada/New England cruise in September of 2015! We are all retired now, excepting Medicalma'am's DH, so you would think it would be easier for us to do so. But with aging parents and transporting grands around, it is actually more difficult to plan. It's been a while since we wrote a review together so I expect a lot of you don't know us. The two reviews we had previously done are in my signature, and our next review will be a tag-team effort, too. Medicalma'am has cruised more often and has additional reviews that you'll be able to find in her signature. But take this as a warning, a new review will be forthcoming!
  4. I love the smaller ships, and have been on the Jewel twice, so would highly recommend this ship. BUT, if this is going to be your only Alaskan cruise, I would say the Glacier Bay itinerary. I have said Glacier Bay is somewhere everyone should go at least once in their lifetime. In fact I have told my daughter I wanted to have my ashes scattered there after I pass, but then realized it is probably prohibited since it's a National Park. So I told her I just want her to go there.
  5. To clarify further, the "security desk" referred to is just another table after they check all carryon where you go the 10 steps and they give you receipt for the fee on your bottles, you sign it and it gets added to your OBC. They put a sticker on your bottles and you're on your way. 1-5 minutes, depending on whether there is a line.
