    You know what they say: If life gives you lemons, you must surrender the contraband item now or face penalties. Thanks again for taking us along for the ride, Doug! Excited to see what the TA on Bliss will bring us from the patron saint of vicarious cruisers.

    Food that comes pre-hashtagged. I blame Rick.

    Must be Rowen, Mr. Washy Washy himself! We had the good fortune of having Rowen be our waiter at Teppanyaki the night we dined there back at the end of June, and he sand "Rowen On the River" for us. My seemingly bottomless wine glass is a testament to his great care for us that night :D

    And to think they were only $35 each. *swipe*

    Glad it's just a drill! Though I suspect you'd choose to go down with the ship in the DBH.

  9. It's killing me not to finish this Katie! Not a fan of unfinished work, but with the first five days worth of photos lost to the internet abbyss, I feel like I can't put out a complete product. Boooooo! On a brighter note, I'm enjoying the heck out of your review!! Awesome job! Sent from my XT1094 using Forums mobile app
  10. All I can figure is that it was a perk associated with hosting the Meet & Greet. It was wildly unnecessary for someone of my status, but it was also wildly appreciated. Thanks to photobucket I can't quite complete my story, but I can tell you that the evening after Cozumel we contacted Pam and she escorted through crew passages to early entry to the Supper Club for the dinner and show with The Company Man. Front row seats before the doors opened to the public. It was a special experience to be sure. Additionally we were given priority disembarkation when we got back to Miami. Pam again met us that morning and escorted us to the front of the exit lines so we could head to the front of the line to get to customs. The line behind us as nauseatingly long, and while I was thankful for the perk, I feel more than a little guilty about it! Sent from my XT1094 using Forums mobile app
  11. Well boys and girls, after making the mistake of using PhotoBucket for this second go round, I regret to inform you that I will be unable to complete this review. Photobucket would like me to pay them $399/year to be able to share my photos with you, and since the photos have told my story all along, I feel I can't really continue with the review. All my previously shared photos are now blocked from viewing, and I'm sure I'm not alone in this forum and countless others out there. Sorry everyone! I'm super disappointed in this turn of events. :( I will leave you with a couple more YouTube videos highlighting our day at Xplor Park in Cozumel. c0tOs5_sors ahCnHakLuXc
  12. Looks like LFK owes me a commission ;p Enjoy your time there! You'll love it! As another poster mentioned, the only time I received a paper receipt for my drink purchase was before we were in international waters, so they charged my the Miami sales tax on the value of the drink. The UBP for free is only sort of free as you do pay an 18% gratuity charge on the value of the package at the time of booking. Prior to leaving the camp, they did supply a giant tub of mosquito repellent lotion, but in hindsight I'd recommend bringing your own. There was only one occasion where we stopped in denser jungle where the mosquitoes were present, but there were a LOT of them on that one occasion.
  13. Thanks for the kind words, and for following along everyone! Full family weekend, so I'm sorry I haven't been able to get to put day in Cozumel just yet! Full day at the amusement park with the boys tomorrow, so I should be back to posting sometime Monday! Sent from my XT1094 using Forums mobile app
  14. Well if that's not the craziest case of "small world" I've ever seen! It's one thing for you to know my wife and sister-in-law. Quite another to know them AND sail on the same ship as us less than a month apart! Incredible! I'll mention the chance encounter to Amanda next time we chat!
  15. I wish I had gotten a definitive answer from our steward! I went with brontosaurus, whereas Stacy thought it was a large tortoise, the type with really long necks. Maybe her contacts were bothering her that day ;p
