  1. I will definitely be following along as I board August 1. There are only a few events on our schedule so far. I will likely do a live as well for the August 1 cruise, it will be interesting to see how things play out in practice as the cruises continue through the summer. My medallion app said I was too late and to get my medallion at the pier. I am all checked in and have an 11:30 boarding group for august 1.
  2. My Alaska Cruise is doing that too. My Panama Canal Cruise lets me book excursions. Weird
  3. I will post pics when I’m home and more info. Had done stuff going on i had to use my minutes so I was out. Overall it was a good cruise. It clarified what I want in a cruise going forward as well.
  4. 1st was E436, had the new mattress, 2nd was E430 (with possessed plumbing) old mattress. Now I’m in M433, new mattress but there’s a big bump in the middle.
  5. St. Maarten- I booked a 6 hour speedboat tour with Billy Bones boat charters. You could walk about 15 minutes or take the $7 round trip water shuttle to shopping/beaches to the meeting area. The water shuttle drops off at the same spot we were picked up. The directions could have been clearer as some of the landmarks they noted in the directions weren’t there. There were 23 of us on the Rum Bum, which can hold up to 31 passengers. Captain Miguel and first mate Diane were awesome and very helpful and fun. We stopped at several locations to swim and snorkel. An awesome lunch was also included at
  6. Well the possessed plumbing saga continues. They offered to change my cabin but I want to stay where I am so they are trying again. If it’s still not fixed tomorrow, I’m moving to another cabin. The plumber was saying it was fixed so I took video this time 😡. I think a demon possessed it for Halloween.
  7. My bathroom is working this morning so far so I’m happy 🤣
  8. Oct 31 was Halloween of course and there were several Halloween themed events including trivia, movies and a party in the piazza. Some dressed for dinner, some after. They are doing an escape room, it’s $8 USD to participate. The shows this cruise are Born to Dance, Fiera, Bravo and Sweet Soul Music. Comedians Carlos Oscar, Michael Minor, Tom Franek and Robbie Printz are performing this cruise as well. I’ve never seen 4 on one cruise! I didn’t have to attend the muster again so relaxed in my cabin during the drill. New cruise, new dinner mates! I enjoy talking to people. I had early dining on
  9. Today is turnaround day in NYC. I opted to take a Lyft to the 9/11 museum. I pre booked a skip the line ticket through Expedia and downloaded the audio tour. The tour evoked memories from that day, shock, fear, anger and grief. It was very well done with many exhibits and and pieces of history. In A large part of the museum photos aren’t allowed, but I wouldn’t have anyway. The artifacts there were personal to those who we lost that day.
  10. Day at sea headed back to New York. It was overcast and chilly headed back. I didn’t do anything very excited but while we are back in New York today, I’ll upload some pics. Here are some from the tour in Halifax. Awesome small group excursion! We saw so much and a lot of places the ship tours don’t go.
  11. Saint John Day We were scheduled to be in Port in St. John today from 12 noon to 11PM. I spent the morning chatting and of course going to the Enclave. Though we arrived on time, The ship wasn’t cleared to disembark until about 1220. They only had one line to exit the ship and although I waited until about 1245 there were still a line snaking through the Piazza. For this port, we had to show photo ID along with our medallion when we reentered the port area. Today I had the opportunity to have lunch with Vickie and Bernie, yes that Vickie and Bernie who cruise Princess often and blog abou
  12. They usually have the blueberry pancakes the first morning. I just know from previous cruises. Icon is on board and they are awesome! Carlos Oscar the comedian has performed two nights this cruise. I saw them hauling mattresses around the halls but don’t know how many are done.
  13. Well my hips don’t lie and they are mad about all the dancing so far 😂. I’m already behind so will try to catch up. Yesterday was Halifax and we were to port at 7am. I set my clock for 6:50 so I could watch sail in but when the alarm went off we were already docked. My tour wasn’t until 9 so I got up and went to the dining room to see what they had but ended up in the buffet. They have an omelette station where you can add what you like. My tour today was prebooked with Paul McNeil Halifax Titanic Historical Tours. We had 9 people in our 14 person van, and he maxes at 10. It was a great day
