  1. Thank you so much, Ellie, for this wonderful virtual cruise! I may not post much, but I have loved every minute. Please, please, please take us on another virtual cruise (to Hawaii or anywhere else you choose) - after a well-deserved rest, of course.
  2. Thanks, voljeep - that's exactly what I had in mind! We may not be able to do truly live cruises, but reading previous live threads is as close as I'm going to get for a while. I hope that other people will post their favorites (and/or also brag about their own previous live threads - that's totally legit and welcome!).
  3. One way I'm (barely) surviving this stretch of time when I can't cruise is by reliving other people's cruises through their Cruise Critic reports. My favorite so far is Ellie1145's "Come Sail with me on a Virtual Cruise on Majestic Princess to Fiji". Even though she is still writing (and I hope she'll post about other cruises when this one is finished), I need more recommendations. I prefer a lengthy (the longer the better), detailed report that walks me through an entire cruise with tons of pictures of the ship, food, drinks, ports, etc. I love to feel like I am almost there with the writer! I'd prefer Princess cruises (since I have FCC's, so I'll likely cruise on Princess next), but other cruise lines would be ok as well. They don't have to be recent, but witty and fun would be the best. Here are reports I've enjoyed so far: Ellie1145 – “Come sail with me on a virtual cruise on Majestic Princess to Fiji” OzKiwiJJ – “Let’s go on a virtual NZ and Australia cruise” Twangster – “Fake, Made-up and completely impossible virtual cruise trip report” ScubacruiserX2 – “Live virtual transatlantic on the Regal” LittleMissMagic – “LMM’s Harmony of the Seas Christmas Cruise” Sid_9169 – “Horizon/Live/Solo – Sep 21-29-2019” Thanks for helping me to get through the time until we can all safely cruise again!
  4. I know that I'm extremely late to the party (I'm only up to page 40) but I wanted to catch you before you ended your cruise to let you know how much your cruise blog has meant to me. I was getting very fed up with being so isolated with the pandemic and missing all the wonderful plans I had previously had for this year. Following your lovely blog has almost made me feel like I'm on the trip with you - not quite as good as the real thing, but so much better than sitting home and feeling sorry for myself! I've been sharing news of this cruise with my family on a regular basis, so they are well aware of how much this virtual cruise has meant to me. Usually, whenever we go on a wonderful adventure like a cruise, I buy lots of small gifts for my family to give to them for Christmas. Since I have had absolutely no trips this year, I'm doing something very silly: I'm buying them small gifts from the Fiji Islands to commemorate this virtual cruise. I'm sure that they will be entertained by my silliness. Thanks so much for giving me something to celebrate and something to help get me though this difficult time. Now, I'll go back to page 40 . . .
  5. I love seeing people post about Princess "Secrets" during this difficult cruise-free time. Please keep them coming! It gives me something to look forward to. Thanks!
  6. Well, it's a new year, so we may as well start a new "Secrets" thread. Please share your favorite secrets so that people who are new to Princess (or those who don't read older threads) won't miss out. My favorite "secret" is still Refer-A-Friend. Details can be found on the main Princess page at the bottom in small print under "Cruise Deals". If you've never cruised Princess before, look into this before you book your cruise to get $25 on-board credit for yourself and whoever refers you. If you have cruised Princess before but have friends or family members who are cruising Princess for the first time, consider looking into referring them before they book. Here's to another great year of cruising!
  7. Refer-A-Friend is still my favorite Princess cruise tip (and I'm not seeing it posted here). Details can be found on the main Princess page at the bottom in small print under "Cruise Deals". If you've never cruised Princess before, look into this before you book your cruise to get $25 on-board credit for yourself and whoever refers you. If you have cruised Princess before but have friends or family members who are cruising Princess for the first time, consider looking into referring them before they book. Every little bit helps!
  8. Well, it seems like time to start a new Princess "Secrets" thread. I realize that some of the "secrets" might be repetitious, but some information does change, and people new to Princess might miss information in older threads. I just like to keep the conversation going. I'm always learning something new!
