  1. Yes, we are going to do the same. Breakfast and lunch should be easy to stay away from carbs. We probably won’t lose any weight, we’re just hoping we don’t gain a lot! We went off for a few days awhile back and we lived through it! Back on it after the cruise! I’m going to check into the vanilla Splenda Zero and experiment with some of the suggestions! Thank you!
  2. Thanks everyone! I tried the Protein shake in my coffee and I found it to be terrible! And to me, there is a difference between HWC and half n half. It’s not the carb content in HWC vs HnH. That doesn’t concern me. I like the taste and creaminess of HWC. I could use sweetener packets but I don’t use them in my coffee b/c I want the flavor (like vanilla). I also don’t want to carry refrigerated items around with me to get coffee. I was hoping there was a yummy powder alternative that someone knew about. I’ve been searching but so far nothing. At least nothing that tastes good to me anyway. So, it looks like I’ll be trying HnH with sweetener to get used to it before we go. And, I won’t be doing full keto on the cruise. I just want to make choices of where I’m going to eat keto and not. I hope that makes sense. Thanks for all all the input!
  3. I thought I posted this already but it’s not showing up? Oh well. Has anyone doing keto and that drinks coffee figured out this out? Will I be able to request HWC and SF syrup from the baristas (not Starbucks) on the Indy? Not sure if that’s an option or not? I can’t do creamer like I used to do and bringing my own HWC is not an option. We are getting the Refreshment package. Thanks so much!
  4. I spoke to a rep on the phone a few weeks ago. She said no need for the online photo b/c they will do it anyway at the port. I questioned why they had that online and she really didn’t know.
  5. Just re-read the email and there was no reason stated for the 12:30 arrival time. Thank you so much!
  6. I asked this on the roll call board but will ask here as well. Our cruise leaves tomorrow. We rec’d an email saying not to show up at Port for check in until 12:30 tomorrow (18th). Is that a formality or can we still get there early? It seems I remember on our last cruise we received the same email but we still showed up at port at 10:30 AM and we started check in. Thoughts? Thank you!
  7. I always take my own flavored creamer on my trips cruising or flying. So far I’ve never had an issue with individual creamers, small non-refrigerated liquid creamers, or powdered. Even in my carry on luggage.
  8. I have a couple more questions (already posted one). 1. We are first time in JS. What are the perks aside from double points? I've been looking for answers but not real clear on what they are? 2. And, I am a get to the port early person! We haven't cruised in about 4 yrs. Has anything changed as far as boarding, etc? What time is a good time to get to the port to get on the ship as early as we can to start enjoying it? I hope this makes sense:) This is a first time girls cruise so we're excited! We love our hubs and we'll miss them, but we hate the cold! Thanks!
  9. We have several hours before our flight out of FLL after we leave the ship. Any recommendations on what we can do before we head to the airport? We will have our luggage with us of course. I thought of the Water Taxi but I haven't done my homework on that yet. Thanks!
  10. I added a birthday to our paid in full reservation and it added over $600! What?! When I called they said there was a glitch in the system b/c I did that. It took them a few minutes but they finally fixed it.
  11. Thank you for all the very helpful info!! We’ll be sure to talk about all these options:)
  12. Hello all!! It's been awhile since I've been on these boards! I've missed this:) I am thinking of taking my 19yo son on a cruise just the two of us. DH says we need to get away 👍 DS hasn't been on a cruise since he was in HS and in the teen club, which he loved. He is very social and doesn't mind meeting new ppl. My question is what does a 19 yo do on a cruise when not cruising with a friend? I know he won't, and don't expect, him to hang around me all the time and that's fine. I'm good to plant myself at the pool or seeing a show by myself if he's off doing stuff. So what will he do? LOL I don't think they have a "club" for that age group, right? He doesn't drink so not sure what the drinking age is on the ships, or if he can get into the clubs to dance even. I'm so not up to date on this age group and cruising. Apologies for my ignorance. He hasn't been on anything smaller than the Disney Wonder and Freedom of the Seas. We are thinking Enchantment in the next few weeks. Or should we do Independence? I'm just not sure about the amount of young ppl his age on a smaller ship like Enchantment. Hopefully this all makes sense! Thank you 😊
  13. We were on Allure in 2014 and had 12729 and we loved it. DH and I sat on the "secret" balcony at the end overlooking the Aqua Theater a lot. There was only one other couple that went out there but only once or twice. Other than that as far as we knew we were the only ones out there. We enjoyed watching events from up there and just watching the ocean night or day:) Many people complained it was a long walk. It didn't matter to us. I would do it again as long as I could get at least one or two cabins all the way aft. Also, we did not feel much movement and typically DH likes to be midship. He was fine.
  14. I totally get it and we use cash to pay off our onboard acct as well. I don't think you should have to justify :confused: why you do it! That is best for you and that's awesome! Have a great trip ;)
  15. From what I can gather doing a quick search, it looks like formal nights on the Allure (Eastern) are Monday and Thursday, correct? Hoping someone off recently can concur or correct me:) Thanks! We're getting excited! :p
