  1. We had a junior suite on the 15 night Indy repositioning cruise and those are sold out on Anthem. Plus it gets to England earlier than I would like because of weather considerations. So instead taking our approximately $1300 future cruise credit and am using it for a 7 night Caribbean cruise on Harmony of the Seas so we can finally check out an Oasis class ship. Still heartbroken our dream cruise is not going to happen for our 40th anniversary.
  2. Such a nightmare for all involved. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the passengers who lost their lives and their loved ones both on the cruise with them and back at home as well as the pilot who lost his or her life. Let's also not forget that it appears from news reports that many of the survivors are hospitalized, some with very serious injuries. Our thoughts and prayers need to go out to them as well.
  3. The other day just before Royal Caribbean announced keeping Indy in Florida because of anticpated demand for Coco Cay I had just read a passenger review of Coco Cay where they said it was very nice but with just one ship there the wait for the big water slides was something like 1 1/2 hours. Now granted this is an anecdotal report but if true how in the world are they going to be able to handle the added passenger count from Indy to the ones they had already planned on going there???
  4. Well those new ships and ground based services do have to be paid for so it is unrealistic to look at their gross margin without looking at their expenses which means looking at their net income.
  5. Royal Caribbean's 2018 net income is about half what you are projecting. $1.6 billion dollars not $3.9 billion. As a shareholder I am glad to see they are in the black! https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/20294-royal-caribbean-reports-2018-full-year-and-q4-earnings.html
  6. We are booked on the May TA for our 40th wedding anniversary. Had splurged on a junior suite for the first time. I am so disappointed. So many of the TA's are too early in the Spring for good weather once you get to Europe but this one was perfect arriving in the UK mid May. I guess my ambitious plan to be Diamond by early 2021 has taken a hit!
  7. For azipods definitely Rockauto.com
  8. I have this suite 1106 booked on Indy and would like to find this Cruise Rick's review. but have been unable to. Can someone point me to where it is? Thanks!
  9. I can't believe they won't put her in drydock ASAP to resolve this issue. It is just crazy to reduce speed and skip ports for about six months!
  10. That bacon clothesline looks as good as I imagined! I will be having that next week on Nieuw Statendam!
  11. We board Nieuw Statendam this coming Sunday April 7th and I sure hope the Pinnacle Grille has the new menu because this bacon appetizer sounds great. Of course bacon always sounds great!
  12. Yes you are crazy. Why not play it safe by spending $150 bucks for a decent hotel and fly in the night before? I have also been to Rome before but can't imagine not wanting to spend at least a little bit of time there again!
  13. What is the "bacon clothesline"? Is that an entree or appetizer?
  14. Don't you mean "were doing the transatlantic crossing in 20 days "?
  15. If its any consolation it wouldn't matter if the Bills were in the Superbowl because a few years back they proved they can't win them even if they get there! (how in the world do you make it to 4 Super Bowls in a row and not win at least one????). Come to think of it though at least your team got there those times. My Tennessee Titans have only gottern there once and lost.
