  1. Oh you are so right. But on our cruise in'17 by this date we already had over 30 members and grew continuously. I hope that you are correct when you say S&S will help boost the membership!
  2. Greeting Paul929207! Of course you know that I am going to say Princess 28 Day Hawaii, Samoa & French Polynesia! This is the first time that I have jumped on CC in quite some time and was pleased to see your post. FYI It seems that eyegirl aka Michele & Michael are booked on the Oct 3 2020 28 Day Hawaii, Samoa & Fr. Polynesia cruise but they can't seem to get any response on the Roll Call that they started. Hope everything is going great with you and your lovely wife. Just Mike & Miss Betty aka RetiredNTraveling.
  3. WHERE IS EVERYONE? Are there any cruisers going on the Cruise of a Lifetime besides Eyegirl aka Michele & Michael? I was just lurking around on line and found the Roll Call Listing for Emerald Princess - October 3, 2020! I was shocked, "Shocked I Say" and couldn't believe that since the cruise has been open for over a month and NO ONE except for Michele and Michael have joined the Roll Call! Surely there are a few of you out there that have signed up for this Emerald Princess Cruise! Come on over and check it out. https://www.cruisecritic.com/rollcalls/emerald-princess-october-3-2020/
  4. On our last cruise which was a 28 Day Hawaii, Samoa & Fr. Poly. cruise, I did most of the laundry while I told my wife to take a nap. Out of the 6 times doing laundry, only 1 time did I see a lady doing the laundry. All of the other times it was anywhere from 2 to 4 guys doing the work and most of the time there were 3 of us. (Often the same fellows.) We all found it saved time if you went down to the Pursers Desk first for Tokens rather than trying to get them from the dispenser which usually just took your bills. But the TV worked and helped to pass the time. Several times some of the wives would stop in to tell their husband where they were off to, mine included which was usually Bingo! Just Mike
  5. We recently took the 28 Day Hawaii, Samoa & Fr. Poly cruise. We ordered 4 of the $6.90 qty's of water from the Personalizer and it was just the right amount for the cruise. You will love the Golden. Just Mike
  6. I agree with the others. However there are occasion on the Hawaiian Cruises that we have been on when a menu or two might include fish dishes that sound ;)Hawaiian. Just Mike
  7. ATD is our choice. If we aren't in a hurry we usually go down to the Piazza around 4:45 or 5:00 and find a seat, order a drink and watch the people. Then later go over to the Dining Room and ask for "Sharing" and usually are seated very shortly. However, if there is something that we want to do then Reservation is the way to go. Either way you can't go wrong and by the way, you will love the Golden Princess! Just Mike
  8. Greeting! We hope that you enjoy the "Suite Life"! As for laundry service, we have been fortunate enough 4 times to have had the opportunity to enjoy the Suite Life and of course we utilized the Free Laundry Service. ;) That is except for what the wife refers to as unmentionables and hosiery. :o Never had any issues. Fair Winds and Following Seas! :whiskey-glass: Just Mike
  9. This was a great review and it was so much fun to read. It was really nice to see several of our fellow cruisers from the Oct 2017 Cruise posting. There isn't a day that goes by without thinking about the great time and fantastic people who we were so fortunate enough to meet. Just want to say Hi to Paul929207 & Thrak! There was a lot of effort by our Coordinators into getting the island tours put together. If we are fortunate enough to take this cruise again,we can only hope that there are enough people who are willing to volunteer to take on the challenge of working up the tours. Just Mike ;p;p
  10. This is an opinionated and interesting forum. But that is what makes CC so much fun. While we obviously haven't been on as many cruises, my darling wife and I also have our opinions. Suffice to say, we have been partakers in all of the various venues that have been offered on our fabulous cruises. We have been involved in short and some long meals in MDR's, buffets and Specialty Restaurants. As for 2 hour meals they are usually if not always at our choice. Good meals, great waiters, fantastic table mates make the time fly. If, however, we get stuck with a less than enjoyable group at the meal I can always excuse us and escape from the "dreaded" table. But we never, I repeat never, sign up for Traditional Dinning. Otherwise we just love meeting new people and as a result we make many new cruise friends.

  11. Hi there Michele! While we might want to, it simply isn't in the cards. I have been promising Betty a kitchen remodel and she has waited long enough. But if Michael and you are going, you can bet that I will be "Lurking" around. Just Mike Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G800A using Forums mobile app
  12. Greetings! My darling wife and I have cruised 14 days (now 15 day cruise) to Hawaii 2013 from LA once and also cruised 15 days to Hawaii 2016 from Vancouver once. Both were wonderful cruises, but in 2017 we took the cruise of a lifetime, "The 28 day to Hawaii, Samoa and Fr. Polynesia". It was simply spectacular and we had such a wonderful time, it would be hard for any other cruise to TOP IT! Also, need to say Hi to Paul929207. Fair Winds and Following Seas! Just Mike
  13. Are you sure? What if I inadvertently flush it down the toilet? Will they not know that I did it? Greetings Thrak. I haven't been on CC for some time and low and behold I see that you are still helping those of us who are electronically challenged out. I just couldn't resist the temptation to respond! As always I am Just Mike
