  1. When you’re quarantined with judgmental pets ...
  2. And, hopefully JC has a sense of humor or I’m going to hell 🤣
  3. Well I splurged for a suite on this Oasis class cruise thinking Coastal Kitchen would make it worth the money. Boy was I ever wrong! They gave me a box of lasagna for dinner, told me that I had to cook it myself and that i would have to supply my own meat “protein” - shocking!!!
  4. Watch Steve Harvey Roast "Oblivious" Contestants on 'Family Feud' for Their Answers https://youtu.be/_ej0NCo2CLQ
  5. (Not quite a repeat - I made this meme from a gif that would only post as a link.)
  6. I got an email from Geico last night “announcing The GEICO Givebackwhich provides a 15 percent credit to all auto and motorcycle customers as policies come up for renewal, between April 8, 2020 and October 7, 2020. This credit will also apply to any new policies purchased during this period as part of our commitment to protecting the wellbeing of our customers.” Big whoopee. And shame on State Farm. I’m sure they’ll follow the lead shortly when they get enough flak from their customers. With everyone’s cars spending much of their time parked at home and not on the roads, these auto companies must all be saving big $$$ on accident claims. The least they could do is pass some of it on to their policyholders. NOW BACK TO OUR REGULAR SCHEDULED PROGRAM:
  7. Me too! Thank you Biker19 for finding and sharing this unique Royal Caribbean cruise review. 😂🤣
  8. While the extension date is still not showing in the account info page, this is what is showing when I go to the Voyagers Club page, so any of you that had 2021 expirations should be okay.
  9. The good stuff ~ two-ply quilted TP!!! 😀 But the payout stinks. Three cherries 🍒 only paid out with 2 squares! My cruise is going down the crapper! 😡 So happy Ukigirl is getting the Royal treatment she deserves on her cruise and hoping she will let us know about more of her port stops and excursions.
  10. Wow! You picked a great ship and I’m really enjoying your review. I don’t know what I was thinking but I strayed from cruising Royal and am stuck on the Pool Algae Queen. 🤢 What a rust bucket! My waiter is nowhere near Elbo’s caliber and there is no pool boy to attend to my needs. AND THE CASINO HAS ONLY ONE, YES ONE, SLOT MACHINE!!! Thank goodness they at least carry one of my favorite beers since I’m not a fan of Corona (even with lime).
  11. That’s why I said my fear is if plaintiffs win this case, not only will it set a precedent that allows people to hold the cruise lines responsible for its passengers stupidity and flagrant violations of rules and lack of proper supervision of their children, but the ships will be retrofitted into sealed cages. Balconies completely screened in and reinforced with impenetrable vertical bars; same for any openable windows on the pool deck with only authorized crew having the means to open/close; solid 8’ or higher railings on all ocean accessible decks (like Freedom’s deck 12) so there are no horizontal rails to climb; eliminating passenger access to any decks that cannot be secured to prevent stupidity by adults or unsupervised access by children (outside promenade deck and helipad on those ships currently allowing it come to mind); 6’ or higher plexiglass panels completely surrounding all pools/whirlpools/water parks with a single guarded entrance; and the list goes on and on. But even if the whole ship were encased in barbed wire, There is no way Royal, (or any person or business for that matter), can foresee and take precautions against every act of stupidity that is humanly possible nor those who do not properly supervise children in their care and take responsibility for their actions or inactions. ~ Judy
  12. Truly a tragic incident. I pray for the baby and my heart goes out to the family. The videos show step-grandfather was truly stupid and negligent (and in violation of RCL’s clear policy regarding guard rails) for lifting her up and over the railing. And, in view of his statement that he watched her fall ALL THE WAY DOWN, he clearly had hs head extended through the open window. BUT, in reading some of the comments posted in the various online videos, there are way too many people who feel RCL is to blame. They feel there is a difference between safety rails on open decks and balconies because it is known there is nothing beyond those railings, and argue that the pool deck railings were in front of windows that should NEVER be opened. While open windows are clear to us who have cruised these ships (and easily extended our arms through these windows to take pictures with our cameras), they argue the windows especially pose a danger to children who might climb on a chair or lounger and RCL was negligent in not protecting the passengers. (No mention of parental responsibility - nope, only cruise line responsibility.) If people like them are on the jury, it might not go well for RCL, or for us seasoned cruisers as well. MY FEAR is that if plaintiffs win this case, not only will it set a precedent that allows people to hold the cruise lines responsible for its passengers stupidity and flagrant violations of rules and lack of proper supervision of their children, but the ships will be retrofitted into sealed cages. Perhaps RCL needs to further vet its passengers with signs at the terminals: ~ Judy
  13. When I sailed on Allure in 2017, the FREE theatre backstage tour for Diamond & up was preceded with a question and answer period with the 5 top leads from the cast of Momma Mia on stage. It was great! Unfortunately, because it was so interesting, I neglected to take pictures while the cast was on stage. I guess they don’t/won’t offer that anymore if they can get people to pay for Insider’s View. (...sigh...) ~ Judy
  14. I normally don’t buy internet packages (just maximize my diamond 24 free hours) but I have family sailing in three separate cabins on Independence in February and we will need to keep in touch with each other. Unfortunately, I understand Independence doesn’t have the chat feature in the Royal app. My Cruise Planner has a 4 device surf & stream for $23.99 per day which I believe I could share. Is this a good price or another phony Black Friday deal?
  15. Here are pictures of inside cabin 4591 on Majesty. No couch or loveseat. Small TV was mounted on wall in corner at foot of bed. Luggage fit under the beds. While my studio cabin on Brilliance had only one twin bed, it was modern with much more closet and desk storage, a cooler and larger TV. But since I sailed solo in 4591, it was more than ample for my needs.
  16. When I was on the June 24th sailing, lobster was on the 5th night. Plain “butter” poured on top with no seasoning. And yes, the duck was delicious - not dried out like I’ve experienced on last few cruises. ~ Judy
  17. Well if I wind up going solo, should not be a problem. After having sailed in JS and balconies on Oasis, Freedom and Voyager classes, I sailed solo in a studio on Brilliance last year and found the small cabin was surprisingly nice and the ship was a nice change of pace. My first cruise was on Home Lines Oceanic back in 1971. Now that was teeny tiny! ~ Judy
  18. My offer was for free interior for 2. I went with June 24th 5 night Majesty sailing. Port fees $121pp and I can sail solo or add 2nd person with them just paying port fees. I couldn’t pass it up at that price. I know nothing about the Majesty other than it’s the second smallest ship in the fleet (will have to explore this forum) but I’m just looking for a relaxing cruise anyway. ~ Judy
  19. Last time I saw the honey stung chicken, it was by the bananas in a bowl next to the ketchup and mayo. But it looked like it was preparing to run away.
