  1. Pcardad: Thanks for posting this link. We were not aware of it although we are in compliance with requirements having found them elsewhere. Very timely for us since we leave in two weeks. Z and TB
  2. Granny7: You have some great suggestions here and I would concur with having your birthday in Prime 7. Make it special and memorable. As Rachel said, let them know in advance; have them bake a special cake for you; work with the CD to have a serenade; and invite some of your favorite guests and crew members. Now that we have a plan, don’t forget to invite me and I will do my best to make it an epic birthday. Z and TB
  3. GOARMY: Please make sure you find us during this cruise. I’m usually sitting at the pool bar in the afternoons and wearing either a Yankees or Citadel cap. Look forward to meeting you. Z and TB
  4. Bill: You just outlined my first seven years of College. It’s like a “This is Your Life” episode. Thank you. Z and TB
  5. Although I cannot answer your question, we love her and hope that she will be onboard the Explorer on 31 Oct. She is a wonderful person and great human being. Z and TB
  6. When you refer to Genny, do you mean Genessee Cream Ale? I loved it. Too bad it’s no longer made. Z and TB
  7. Almost as good as night train. Add a little vodka to strengthen it up. I remember drinking rum and Coke and asking the bartender to add more rum because the coke was too strong. Z and TB
  8. That was my drink of choice as a poor cadet at The Citadel. That and mixing 151 rum and Schmitz malt liquor bull. Again, poor student. Now, I love sipping rums and Hendricks, but not at the same time. Z and TB
  9. At this point, I’ll drink Mad Dog 20/20 as long as I’m on a cruise. 😊 Z and TB
  10. I’ve searched around and can’t find the itineraries. I guess I will need to wait until tomorrow although I’m very curious. Z and TB
  11. Have a wonderful trip and send lots of pics! We look forward to following along. Z and TB
  12. No good thread can’t thrive without a little food porn: Dover Sole Pacific Rim Lamb Chops Pacific Rim Pork Ribs Prime Rib Panko Shrimp And a little Cosmo to wash it down. Z and TB
  13. On our case, I was thinking of the buffet Prime Rib served in La Veranda upon boarding. It is a perfect first meal to kick off one’s cruise. As others have stated, there are many memorable meals to include Dover Sole, miso sea bass, and panko shrimp. Others include the incredible meals we have had in Pacific Rim. Love the lamb chops and ribs. We will be sailing on the Mariner’s transatlantic cruise on 31 Oct and look forward to many more memorial meals and to continue recruiting for the BM&M society from the third stool at the pool bar. Z and TB
  14. Folks: I got a buzz celebrating my 61st in Vero Beach and got into a conversation with The Boss as we approach our upcoming Regent cruise, we have been discussing our most memorable meals. What are yours? Ours are the incredible prime rib upon boarding and the panko shrimp as well as the Alaskan king crab legs in Prime 7. We also love the miso sea bass. Comments/ thoughts? Z and TB
  15. Damn. Let’s hope nothing gets cancelled. Especially since we have a vested interest in that we are on the Explorer cruise from Barcelona to Miami. Tough times. Z and TB
  16. Bowie: have you checked the suite guru sticky that discusses suite attributes? Z and Tb
  17. Well, we finally pulled the trigger and booked two cruises. The first one was not already advertised and not part of the new itineraries. We chose it because it fit what we wanted: new ports and bucket list items, so we chose the 9 Apr 2023 cruise from Lisbon to Rome on the Splendor. Although not over anniversary, close enough. We also booked a Carib cruise on the Splendor on 16 Feb 2024 from San Juan to Barbados. Both of these will include pre and post ground days especially in Rome and San Juan. Anyone else book any news itineraries? please don’t let Vandy know. Z and TB
  18. We have been on two Nav cruises where we booked these suites and had no problem with privacy. Although, it at first seems a little strange looking out at a walkway, we realized it was seldom used and found it to be just fine. The location is great and the ship is awesome. Enjoy the cruise! Z and TB
  19. Regardless of what suite you choose, you you are about to embark on a great cruise experience. We have been on a dozen Regent cruises and have never had a reason to complain about the cabins although location dictates number of steps. Here’s to wishing you a great first Regent cruise and don’t forget to get the Alaskan king crab and caramel popcorn dessert in Prime 7. Z and TB
  20. It would be our pleasure to sail with yous again. I miss you, bro. Z and TB
  21. We have perused the itineraries, gasped at some of the prices, and have made a list of six potential cruises for our anniversary in 2023. Some of our favorites are too long since we both are still working. We will most likely stick to a combination of ports we have not visited before and those we would like to revisit. I like any cruise that stops anywhere near Santiago de Compostela, Spain as it is a lifelong desire to see the Camino De Santiago, but The Boss also has a say. Anyone choose any cruises yet? Z and TB
  22. Would love to hear some more inputs since we have two cruises planned that stop in these ports. Kudos to the OP for asking this question. Z and TB
  23. Drib: I had to peek at each cruise you listed and noticed that the Gauchos and Golazos page has a picture of Willemstad, Curaçao which is a few thousand miles north. Another faux pas. Z and TB
