  1. Wow the upsell fairy is busy these days. I thought I did well with an upsell from a guarantee obstructed veranda to a Spa Veranda for $25pp. Congrats to Sharon and Craig on your upsell to a Neptune and to Bruce and Sue on the upsell to a Pinnacle. Bruce and Sue I have never been inside a Pinnacle so please post plenty photos of your wonderful cabin. Jane
  2. Good afternoon everyone. Both of the meals look very good as long as I am not the one that has to cook. Finally got my Rapid Covid test booked for 10/08. Now keeping fingers crossed that the test is negative and I can actually get on the Kdam on 10/10. I have had either 5 or 6 cruises cancelled/rolled over and I am almost afraid to get really excited. I visited Prince Edward Island on the Maasdam in Oct. 2009, on the Veendam in Sept. 2012 and on the Zuiderdam in Sept. 2017. The first 2 with my hubby, the 3rd I was a solo. Did HAL excursions all 3 times. and saw the Anne of Green Gables homestead twice. One of my favorite things was having lunch at The Prince Edward Island Preserve Company. By far and away the best lobster meal I ever had and so large I was unable to finish it. Gift shop and grounds were very interesting. Sorry I have no photos that I can post. again
  3. Jacqui please add the following cruises for me. 10/10/21 Konigsdam Calif. Coastal 7 day 01/16/22 Konigsdam Circle Hawaii 17 day Thank you, Jane
  4. Yesterday I received a very nice upsell offer on a 10/10/21 cruise.
  5. Glad you are able to be home now, Rest, rest and more rest combined with your antibiotic and praying that you have a speedy and complete recovery.
  6. Love all these photos of Willemsted. I have never been to the ABC Islands but they remain on my bucket list. Jane
  7. For several years while living in So.Cal. my husband and I would spend a week at Big Bear Lake and attend the Octoberfest. Octoberfest at that time ran every weekend from the middle of Sept. through the end of Oct. and featured German musicians. The first Octoberfest we attended while we were dancing a polka someone rained their beer down my back. A good thing I was not driving as I reeked. My son had the good furtune to attend Octoberfest in Munich in1979. @mamofami.. congratulations on your 62nd anniversary. What a blessing that you will be able to be with your hubby that day. @Sharon in AZ. Thanks for your warm welcome to the 10/10/21 cruise. I live in Mesa. Lets chat on the rooll call and set up a meeting. I have no idea why my computer isn't showing the blue hilighting today. Jane
  8. Interesting topics here today. I was born in the United States and have lived here all my life however I doubt I could pass the citizenship test without a whole lot of study. Our constitution is wonderful but I sometimes wonder if our elected officials have ever bothered to read it. Some of their interpretations are totally contrary to what I see when I read the constitution and contrary to what I was taught in Civics classes. Both of the Cod recipes look very good. I wonder if they can be done in the oven instead of on a grill. (Remember I am definitely not a cook). The wine sounds lovely also. I absolutely love San Diego. We used to spend a long weekend there about once a quarter whenever I needed some mental rest. And speaking of rest and San Diego I just booked the 10/10/21 coastal cruise; going solo and I can't wait to get on the Kdam. Jane
  9. So sorry to see that you are hospitalized. I will be praying for a speedy diagnosis, excellent treatment and a rapid, full recovery.
  10. Thank you so much for posting this Budweiser commercial. It is so moving and brings tears to my eyes still. Jane
  11. Truthfully I haven't made up my mind yet but I will certainly let you know if I don't want to take it. Jane
  12. Jacqui, I see that you are ahead of me having already removed my Nov. Zuiderdam cruise. I was just notified by HAL today. Thank you so much for all your hard work in keeping this list current with all the changes that HAL is making. Jane
  13. I got the email from HAL this morning that my Thanksgiving cruise to Hawaii on the Zuiderdam was cancelled. The replacement voyage is aboard the Konigsdam beginning Jan.14. This is my 4th or 5th cruise that has been cancelled by HAL and to say that I am disappointed is an understatement. On a brighter note I also received a HAL casino offer for a free veranda with several voyages to pick from. Decisions, decisions. Jane
  14. Enjoy yourself, as if you could not enjoy a cruise in a Neptune Suite.
  15. Thank you to all who have posted photos as I have never been to Australia. I love bacon: BLT is my favorite sandwich just barely ahead of BA (bacon/avacado). Not a fan of wings, spicy or otherwise. I have had and enjoyed the drink of the day but the wine is way outside my budget's comfort zone. Bon voyage to all who are cruising now. I am impatiently waiting for my Thanksgiving cruise to Hawaii. Jane
  16. Looking forward to reading all your posts as I am keeping my hopes up for a cruise to Hawaii for Thanksgiving. You last live from was most encouraging to me. Jane
  17. Update re Kakalena- she had some type of medical issue and had to be hospitalized a couple of days for tests. She is home now and doing better.
  18. I am 80 with underlying conditions. I have a cruise booked to Hawaii this Nov. and I have been fully vaccinated since Feb. I will be getting the Maderna booster shot 3 weeks before the cruise. I discussed this with both my pulmonologist and my cardiologist and they have agreed that it is okay for me to go following the CDC guidelines. My pulmonologist said "Hawaii should be safe, don't cruise to any foreign ports".
  19. It is always a joy to see the photographs of the port of the day, especially the ports that I have never visited. @rafinmdYour sunrise and sunset photos are also something I look forward to seeing everyday as much as I look forward to reading your lists and seeing your choice for dinner each day. Happy anniversary to Mr. and Mrs. @grapau27. and Happy Birthday to @VictOriann, I beat you to 80 by 19 days, but let's don't tell. I gave up on my range as my oven gave a loud pop and both the burners on top and the oven itself got hot at the same time. Since the range was origional to the house (1997) I opted to replace rather than call a serviceman for repairs. New range is supposed to be installed on Aug. 30th. Please wish me luck with that as last year I had to replace my refrigerator and it took from March to Nov. to get the replacement. Our Arizona monsoon arrived with a vengence and we had downpours with flooding every night for over a week. It has let up now and we are supposed to be dry and hot for at least the next week. Very necessary to clean up all the damages in almost every part of the state. Fortunately for me I only lost 1 cactus that uprooted itself. Landscaper is trying to save it by replanting much deeper. Jane
  20. I would like to see you post the month of Crystal menus. Jane
  21. I have never been to Lisbon so I am very much enjoying all the beautiful photos. Every day for me is a lazy day, I love retirement. I don't have a dog so does spoiling my cats count? Pulled pork sandwiches are one of my favorites and would go very well with the wine of the day. The drink of the day sounds interesting and I would definitely try it. Jane
