  1. Thank you. Missed you on these boards for the last few weeks.
  2. Hi Drake Thank you for being so informative about your island. Our cruise arrives in St Croix Feb 13th, 2019. We are thinking of purchasing the day pass package at Sand Castle by the Sea but are concerned about the noise level from the ongoing renovations. Just what is being done and are they close to completion? Are they putting finishing touches or is there actual construction going on? What condition is the pool and surrounding area? Thank you in advance.  Mary

  4. Just dropping in: There are some folks here that are also booked on the new 14 night Silhouette 1/31/20 sailing that replaces the cancelled 2/2/20 cruise. I successfully upgraded to a premium beverage package about an hour ago. It was 115.64 (30% off). Dining, excursions etc are all loaded now and functioning. The sale ends today. They fixed the glitch just in time. Mary
  5. George -- you do have way with words!!!! Can't wait til our Feb cruise!!! Mary;)
  6. Karen that is encouraging. Now I am even more curious. Let's see what Paul comes up with. Now if we could only get Sue Denning back on the Eclipse on a permanent basis. She is there for this sailing though. Paul if you have the opportunity can you ask Sue Denning if she will be on the Eclipse for the Feb 4th sailing. She is the best Cruise Director I have ever sailed with. She is everywhere. Her vibe is contagious. Mary;)
  7. Following along and loving your blog and great pictures. It's adding to my anticipation for my Feb 4th Eclipse cruise. If possible could you post a shot of the menu at the Mast Grill. I am wondering if they added anything new to the usual burgers and hot dogs since it is not free anymore. Mary;)
  8. Bon Voyage Paul and Edward. I will be watching your sailaway on the Port of Miami webcam here: http://www.portmiamiwebcam.com/ Mary;)
  9. Thanks to George / HAM who told our roll call ( Eclipse Feb 4th, 2018) that you intended to do a Live!!!!! From the Eclipse Review" I will be following you. Our itinerary is similar to yours. Our Big question at the moment is " Are we calling on St Martin or are we substituting St Kitts Mary;)"
  10. Αἰωνία ἡ μνήμη. May his memory be eternal. Mary
  11. Several cruises ago I twisted / strained my ankle while on an excursion. By that evening it had swelled to twice its normal size. My cabin steward got me to the medical facility on board and looked after my every need for the remainder of the cruise. He brought me extra pillows for elevation, ice throughout the 1st night, and offered to help me pack-up the cabin and get off the ship. I travel solo so all of his unsolicited help was greatly appreciated. The only thing I asked for was assistance to get to the medical facility that 1st evening. I had the use of a wheelchair initially, as I improved I had crutches. For debarking I had a wheelchair and cane to travel home with. To my amazement my steward refused my extra tip. He really gave a hard time but I insisted until he relented. I will never forget his genuine kindness. I had Guest relations arrange getting me off the ship as I did not want to take my steward away from his many duties on turn around day. On the downside I must also say that the Celebrity doctor was more interested whether my accident was during a Celebrity sponsored excursion and determine if Celebrity had any liability rather than caring for my ankle. (BTW I tripped during a private tour I arranged with people from my roll call.) I offered to sign whatever saying it was not any fault of Celebrity Cruises so the doctor would finally get to the medical aspect of my visit to the medical facility. Mary

It was my pleasure to get to know Betty and John for the first time on the Mardi Gras cruise thanks to you inviting me to dine with your group. Such a lovely gentlemen. My condolences to Betty and his family. I will treasure my one and only pin designed by John. I hope Betty has fully recover after her fall. Mary PS. You finally got you wish - Bunny retiring.
