  3. Thanks Kazu, et al. You have no idea how much we are looking forward to heat and humidity, after waking up to -45C wind chill temperatures every morning this week! Back to packing . . . Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  4. I saw the Canadian flag, but they didn't zoom in on it; another couple got the money shot instead.
  5. Poor lady; it could have been a compound fracture, and possibly very painful. It's a terrible way to start (and end) a cruise! Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  6. Checking in - sounds like an engine issue on the Oosterdam.
  7. What ship will you be on?

    It was my understanding that if you purchase a Future Cruise Credit, you couldn't use it to book while you were on that cruise, it had to be used when you left the ship. Am I wrong? Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Convincing people to cruise

    I'm going to take a different road here; after reading what you wrote, I can understand why you would like to convince your friends to take a cruise. Cruising obviously brought you great joy and memories over the years, and you would like for them to have similar experiences. Unfortunately, cruising is not for everyone, and your friends are happy taking vacations of a different kind. Keep your cruise memories close, remembering the people and places you've met and seen, and enjoy your days ahead to the best of your ability. Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  12. A couple of cabin question for you - have the small televisions been replaced, or are they still the little computer-sized screens? How well did the air conditioning work during your trip? Would you suggest an extra (albeit) small fan? Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
  13. That's all I have time for today; see everyone on the weekend! Smooth Sailing! πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚
