  1. I like the idea of 5 vouchers to be used throughout the day. The only thing I would miss if the lounge is not available is the coffee machine. That is a big perk for us in the morning since the coffee in the dining areas on both Royal and Celebrity is so bad. We have not enjoyed happy hour in the lounge as much as we used to as the lounges have become crowded, noisy and hot, would much rather go to one of the bars instead. Not receiving our amenities seems like a cost cutting measure to me, I can understand trying to reduce the number of staff coming into cabins but it would
  2. It’s great to see everyone getting vaccinated, Cynthia only 4 days to go! Debbie, I hope you are feeling better and your test is negative! Our oldest son is driving his family down on Monday which means the 5 year old will be here for a week. Chaos always ensues when he is around but the quiet will be overwhelming when he leaves!😂. Eli loves animals of all kinds so we are taking him to Disney’s Animal Kingdom for a day. I am hoping for mild temps as masks are required. After my husband booked the DR trip, I decided to go crazy and book a cruise on Celebrity sailing
  3. I thought we had no deal breakers but flying to Nassau is one for me! So got around that by booking Celebrity out of St. Marten which I don’t mind flying into and spending a few days before the cruise. Really excited about cruising again! Sherri🙂
  4. Love Chicago, would not want to live there but great place to visit! Michigan Ave is so much fun to walk along, lots of shops, restaurants, bars, etc. I love the Field Museum and the Museum of Science and Industry. You should have an amazing time! And June should be a good time to go, not too hot or humid! Sherri🙂
  5. Debbie, I want to add my condolences, I can’t begin to imagine what you and your family went through.😞 Sherri
  6. Yes, another very sad day for America. I read this morning this is actually the 6th mass shooting occurring during the past week.😞 Cynthia, I want to add my congratulations on getting a vaccine appointment. It is such a relief just to get that appointment! And April 6th is quickly approaching. 🎉🥂 Sherri🙂
  7. HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING💐🌷🌞 Lois, we are about 2 1/2 hours south of you so we are a little warmer but, wow, is it windy this morning! I’m getting ready to go for my morning walk, hoping I don’t get hit by falling palm fronds. Melody, I ‘ve never been a fan of Nassau but I am intrigued by the idea of leaving from St. Martin as it is one of my favorite islands. Depending on how early cruises go, maybe in August? We have a cruised booked for September on Allure, my birthday cruise, but I really don’t see it happening. OOTD: gym shorts, old tshirt, hair in ponyt
  8. I’ve never cared for Nassau so not thrilled with the idea of flying in there but I am intrigued with sailing on Celebrity out of St. Martin. Thinking maybe August, unless something changes. We have a cruise booked on Allure for my birthday in September but I really don’t think it will sail. Sherri🙂
  9. HappyBirthday Lois! I hope your mattress arrives on Sunday with no further delays! And I agree with you, too much hate festering in the country. Not sure we will ever rid ourselves of it. Love the pictures of Rome and the food pictures! Makes me long to go back to Italy again! My husband seems to have gone completely crazy! He, who never, ever makes travel plans, has booked a surprise trip to the Dominican Republic in April. We will be staying at an all inclusive resort for 7 days. Surprise is really not the word for it, I think shock was a good description of my
  10. I can understand your excitement, Christy. We haven’t seen our oldest grandson since March, 2019. He was 13 then and about an inch taller than me, I am 5’ 8”. He is now15 and over 6 ft. Plus, he has a beard!😂😂😂. When we have FaceTimed with him, it is like talking to a different person. It makes me sad that we have lost this time with him. I am glad you will get to spend time with your grandson! Sherri🙂
  11. We went with our son and his family which included our 14 month old grandson on a 11 day cruise on Grandeur in 2016. We all had a great time, especially Eli. We had connecting OV cabins which worked out well. I would do again on a heartbeat. Sherri🙂
  12. CONGRATULATIONS! Grandchildren are the best, so much more fun than children!😂 Sherri🙂
  13. I watched both of these videos today and you are right Lois, these people are nuts! I think it is a sad commentary on today’s society. Melody, it sounds like you are prepared for the storm that is heading your way but what a storm it could be! Stay warm and safe! Sherri🙂
  14. We usually book 5 or 6 per year. 2020 was going to be a big year for us as we had 10 cruises booked, we were able to sail on a B2B Equinox cruise in February, the other 8 were of course, cancelled. We only have 4 booked for 2021, 2 have been cancelled so far. Our next one is not until September so maybe? Sherri🙂
  15. Good report from the dentist yesterday! Melody, your dental experience scares the beejabbers out of me, from the dental issues I have had, I can see something similar in my future. I hope you are healing well, too. Sherri🙂
