  1. First I've ever seen a complimentary work out session!
  2. Screenshots from the mobile site. Not shocked that the two sites are inconsistent.
  3. I haven't really paid attention to the elite plus / captains club benefits since our last cruise in January, but looked at the list of benefits today and see that the 240 minutes of internet is no longer listed? Has this been nixed? *edited to note that the aforementioned list I am referring to was on the X mobile site.
  4. Thanks for the reconnaissance 🙂 I love the detox blend and usually get one a day... for all the detoxing I need of course 🙂
  5. I've re-read the OP's post a couple of times trying to make sense, and it *seems* that the issue was with the PMNA? The OP continued to reference "premium", but it seems the issue stemmed from the kids who had PMNA and not the adults with the premium ALCOHOL pkg???
  6. Ugh! So disappointed to hear this! Can you clarify if the smoothies are no longer covered under the premium drink package or just under the premium non alcoholic package, or both?
  7. This just popped up on my google news feed. I hope PBR takes this nationwide 🙂 https://www.google.com/amp/s/people.com/food/pabst-blue-ribbon-pbr-hard-seltzer/amp/
  8. My brother is a miller lite kind of shot n beer guy...always has been... and even he likes the spiked seltzers!
  9. Perhaps I should have said "spiked seltzer has made a dent in craft beer sales in recent months - and the craft beer industry is taking note". As I mentioned, I LOVE craft beer - and live just "down the road" in Charlotte, which also has a huge beer scene, (and went to school at WCU!), so certainly no stranger to the popularity of the craft in our state, and nationwide. Buuuuttt... the craft beers pack on the pounds, so the spiked seltzers are a nice "day drink" with low cals and not a lot of sugar.
  10. I'm merely suggesting that popularity has soared... The links below compare the rise of hard seltzer vs. craft beer in recent months. Three of the following are from beer-focused publications. https://www.brewbound.com/news/nielsen-off-premise-beer-sales-flatten-in-2018-as-hard-seltzer-sales-near-500-million https://www.goodbeerhunting.com/sightlines/2019/7/29/monthly-beer-sales-have-already-peaked-not-so-for-hard-seltzer https://www.chicagobusiness.com/consumer-products/brewers-switch-seltzer-craft-beer-slows https://www.craftbrewingbusiness.com/business-marketing/did-you-know-white-claws-hard-seltzers-alone-are-outpacing-sales-of-all-craft-beer/
  11. All you have to do is google - "spiked seltzer popularity" and dozens upon dozens of recent articles reference the "fad" - I'm not making this up. I could add links all day... And yes, I remember wine coolers quite fondly... don't count them out of a comeback! History does tend to repeat itself. https://observer.com/2018/07/spiked-seltzer-popularity-demographics/ https://daily.sevenfifty.com/whats-fueling-the-rapid-growth-of-hard-seltzer/ https://www.wmagazine.com/story/spiked-seltzer-trend https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/21/dining/drinks/hard-seltzer-alcohol.html https://fortune.com/2019/05/31/hard-seltzer-drinks-rose/
  12. I was referencing this article I had seem recently https://www.cbs58.com/news/hard-seltzer-brand-white-claw-surpass-nearly-all-craft-beer-brands-in-sales And this https://vinepair.com/articles/hop-take-beer-sales-white-claw/
  13. I've created something similar as well. Walmart has the white claw for $13.99/12 pack, which is fairly reasonable. Personally, I enjoy the ease of popping the can and not fooling with ice/mixing the proper ratio. But again, not a bad solution. The whole spiked seltzer phenom is fairly new to me... I am a big IPA drinker and red wine lover. The calories and heaviness of beer have caught up to me in middle age, so I've switched over to the white claw, truly, etc. for a change of pace.
  14. Nice to hear from you! I remember you! I'm so touched that you recall the post about my boy, Cooper. He will always occupy a sacred part of my soul. Best dog ever... Our fur babies are still a giant part of our lives and even though "goodbye" will most likely always be a part of the story ... nothing compares to the joy of sharing life with these unwavering, true hearted creatures. Glad to see you are still cruising as well! We have a couple journeys on the books in the near future and not stopping anytime soon! 🙂
  15. Jokingly, I said to my husband before posting the topic - that this would be the first response I would get ;). While an ok alternative, it has more alcohol and takes a little more time to prepare vs. handing over a can.
