  1. Lots of damage that will take some time to repair has made me cancel one of my upcoming cruises on Bliss. Luckily, final payment date was extended so I was able to cancel without a penalty and I had booked it with a $250 Cruise Next Certificate that will be returned to me but now I won't be able to use it by the date it expires on April 23, 2022. But at least all I will lose is the $150 I paid for the certificate. I have several other cruises booked that are past final payment and I can't cancel them so I had to choose this one to cancel. I had 14 cruises cancelled on me since the pandemic so I booked a lot to make up for it.
  2. Yes, I had Fernando pick me out a couple bottles of good sipping tequila. I missed seeing if Tropicana was still open with the new proprietor, just forgot. It was HOT and I was tired so we didn't stroll down the melancon too far.
  3. When you go to get them be sure they give you the Platinum/Diamond pin with the ship name on it. They gave me the Gold one with no name on it and I didn't notice till I got home.
  4. I collect the Carnival pins that we get for being platinum. All the others I have had the ships name on it but the one I got on Mardi Gras just had Carnival and the year. Disappointing. Did anyone get a pin that said Mardi Gras on it?
  5. If you are expecting their hurricanes to taste like the ones from Pat O'Briens you will be very disappointed. They taste nothing alike.
  6. OK, I can do a church joke too........ A sobbing Ms Murphy approaches Fr O'Grady after mass.He says: "So what's bothering you?"She replies: "Oh, Father, I've terrible news. My husband passed away last night."The priest says: "Oh, Mary, that's terrible. Did he have any last requests?""Certainly father," she replied. "He said: ""Please Mary, put down that damn gun."
  7. I just got off the Mardi Gras last week and we just walked off the ship as usual, got in a taxi right at the port and he drove us to the Krazy Lobster for $4 each. (2 for $8). There were plenty of taxis waiting to bring people back to the ship for the same price. No one even mentioned approved taxis or approved tours. We spent some pleasant time at the Krazy Lobster then I went to Fernando's store and bought a couple bottles of sipping tequila to bring home. I wanted to pass by Tropicana to see if it was still operating with the new people but forgot about it. (too much tequila)
  8. Last week on the Mardi Gras we were allowed to go on our own there and we saw no sargassum at Crazy Lobster or most other places.
  9. I was there last week. I used to have to walk out the port and down the street away to get a cheap taxi but now they are letting the taxis into the port eliminating the long walk but the charge is $4 a person.
  10. I booked a cruise on the Koningsdam for 11-14-21 and weeks later booked it for the previous cruise on 11-7-21. Our original cabin wasn't available so we had to book a different cabin for the first cruise. Three questions. First, do we have to get tested between cruises and if so, how or where? Second. Do we have to get off the ship between cruises with all our suitcases or can the room steward move our suitcases to our new cabin? Third. Do we have to check in again on the docks between cruises?
  11. To anyone who is thinking of forging a vaccination card, 2 people were caught in Hawaii and jailed and given $5000.00 fines. Two others entered Canada with forged cards and were arrested and given $10,000.00 fines each. Penalties in some locations are even higher. Many places have ways of verifying cards that they do not make public to keep offenders from finding a way around it. Personally, I believe that anyone who risks exposing thousands of others to this disease deserves even worse punishment.

  12. It's wise to remember how easily email can be misused, sometimes unintentionally, with serious consequences.Consider the case of the Illinois man who left the snow-filled streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick email.Unfortunately, when typing her address, he missed one letter, and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher's wife whose husband had passed away only the day before. When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:Dearest Wife, Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow.P.S. Sure is hot down here.
  13. A big city lawyer went duck hunting in rural North Alberta. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing. The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it." The old farmer Peter replied, "This is my property, and you are not coming over here." The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial lawyers in Canada and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own." The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we settle disputes in Alberta. We settle small disagreements like this with the 'Three Kick Rule.' The lawyer asked, "What is the 'Three Kick Rule'?" The Farmer replied, "Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, I get to go first. I kick you three times and then you kick me three times and so on back and forth until someone gives up." The lawyer quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom. The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the attorney. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel-toed work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees! His second kick to the midriff sent the lawyer's last meal gushing from his mouth. The lawyer was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to his rear end, sent him face-first into a fresh cow pie. Summoning every bit of his will and remaining strength the lawyer very slowly managed to get to his feet. Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said, "Okay, you old son-of-a- bit@&! Now it's my turn." The old farmer smiled and said, "Nah, I give up. You can have the duck."
  14. I was wondering if they took the Fiery Tropical Passion Martini off the menu because any fire is always a danger on a ship. I have asked for it since it was taken off the menu and had some bartenders who would light it up and some would not. Any bartender who has worked the Alchemy for years will remember it but I am bringing a copy of the old menu to show a bartender if he doesn't know what it is.
  15. A pregnant woman gets into a car accident and falls into a deep coma.Asleep for nearly six months, she wakes up and sees that she is no longer pregnant. Frantically, she asks the doctor about her baby.The doctor replies, "Ma'am, you had twins! A boy and a girl. The babies are fine. Your brother came in and named them."The woman thinks to herself, "Oh no, not my brother -- he's an idiot!"Expecting the worst, she asks the doctor, "Well, what's the girl's name?""Denise," the doctor says.The new mother thinks, "Wow, that's not a bad name! Guess I was wrong about my brother. I like Denise!"Then she asks the doctor, "What's the boy's name?"The doctor replies, DeNephew.
  16. I found it. It was the Fiery Tropical Passion Martini. Back when they were $8.95
  17. That was not the name. It was a drink on the Alchemy menu for a few years but they took it off about 5 or 6 years ago. If I had time I could probably go back on the Carnival forum about 7 years and find a photo of the menu or maybe Google an old menu.
  18. A woman was out golfing one day when she hit her ball into the woods. She went into the woods to look for it and found a frog in a trap. The frog said to her, "If you release me from this trap, I will grant you 3 wishes."The woman freed the frog.The frog said, "Thank you, but I failed to mention that there was a condition to your wishes that whatever you wish for, your husband will get 10 times more or better!"The woman said, "That would be okay."For her first wish, she wanted to be the most beautiful woman in the world.The frog warned her, "You do realize that this wish will also make your husband the most handsome man in the world, an Adonis, that women will flock to."The woman replied, "That will be okay because I will be the most beautiful woman and he will only have eyes for me." So, KAZAM she's the most beautiful woman in the world!For her second wish, she wanted to be the richest woman in the world. The frog said, "That will make your husband the richest man in the world and he will be ten times richer than you."The woman said, "That will be okay because what's mine is his and what's his is mine."So, KAZAM she's the richest woman in the world!The frog then inquired about her third wish, and she answered. "I'd like a mild heart attack."Moral of the story: Women are clever. Don't mess with them!Attention female readers: This is the end of the joke for you. Stop here and continue feeling good!Male readers: Please scroll down.The man had a heart attack ten times milder than his wife!!!Moral of the story: Women are really dumb but think they're really smart!Let them continue to think that way and just enjoy the show!PS: If you are a woman and are still reading this; it only goes to show that women never listen!!!
  19. I forgot the name of the drink I liked most. They took it off the menu about 3 years ago at the Alchemy bar. All I remember about it was they squeezed the lemon peel then held a lighter to it and it ignited into a fire and they dropped it in your drink. Who remembers the name?
  20. A guy walks into the local welfare office for his monthly check. Hemarches straight up to the counter and says, "Hi. You know, I just HATE coming in here drawing welfare month after month. I'd really much rather have a job".The social worker behind the counter says, "Your timing isexcellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur-bodyguard for his nymphomaniac daughter.""You'll have to drive around in his Mercedes, but he'll supply all ofyour clothes. Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You'll beexpected to escort her on her overseas holiday trips. You'll have atwo-bedroom apartment above the garage. The starting salary is$200,000 a year."The guy says, "You're bullsh***ing me!" The social worker says "Yeah, but you started it !!"
  21. Jake was dying. His wife, Becky, was maintaining a candlelight vigil by his side. She held his fragile hand, tears running down her face.Her praying roused him from his slumber. He looked up and his pale lips began to move slightly. "Becky my darling," he whispered. "Hush my love," she said. "Rest, don't talk."He was insistent. "Becky," he said in his tired voice, "I have something that I must confess.""There's nothing to confess," replied the weeping Becky,"everything's all right, go to sleep.""No, no I must die in peace, Becky I slept with your sister, your best friend, her best friend and your mother!""I know, my sweet one" whispered Becky,"just lie quietly and let the poison work."
  22. A man walks into a nightclub one night. He goes up to the bar and asks for a beer. "Certainly, Sir, that'll be 1 cent." "One Cent?", exclaimed the man. So the man glances over at the menu and asks, "Could I have a nice juicy T-bone steak, with chips, peas and a fried egg?""Certainly Sir," replies the barman, "but that comes to realmoney." "How much money?" inquires the man.4 cents," the bartender replied."Four Cents?", exclaimed the man. "Where's the guy who owns this place?"The bartender! replied, "Upstairs, with my wife."The man says, "What's he doing upstairs with your wife?"The bartender replied, "The same thing as I'm doing to his business."
  23. The bubble tours put you with all the other unvaccinated people and at higher risk and if one of them later tested positive, you also, will be quarantined. Not my idea of an enjoyable cruise.
