  1. ``An attractive young woman on a flight from Ireland asked the Priest beside her, 'Father, may I ask you a favor ?

    'Of course child, What may I do for you?'

    'Well, I bought for my mother an expensive hair dryer for her birthday. It is unopened but well over the Customs limits and I am afraid they will confiscate it. Is there any way you could carry it through customs for me? Hide it under your robes perhaps ?

    'I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you, I will not lie.'

    "With your face, Father, no one will question you"

    When they got to Customs, she let the priest go first. The official asked,

    "Father, do you have anything to declare?"

    "From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare.."

    The official thought this answer strange, so asked, "And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?"

    "I have a marvelous Instrument designed to be used on a woman,

    but which is, to date, unused.."

    Roaring with laughter, the official said,

    "Go ahead, Father.

    Next Please..."```

    It is always nice to meet Navy retirees. DH retired in 2007 from the Reserves... before that he was active duty in the 80's on the USS Iowa and port services in Sardinia, then they activated him for the Iraq war in 2005.  He was always worried that he would hate cruising because of his Navy career, then our first cruise on Enchantment OTS in 2007 had us both hooked.  Now years later my SIL is interested in a military career and we are both quietly and subtly encouraging him toward the Navy lol.


    As for the Oasis, I am really looking forward to it next month... RCL and Celebrity serve the northeast so much better than our familiar line Princess, and I figured if we are going to sail 2021when things are so tenuous, its better not to worry about flights. Hope to catch up with you some time in the future.

    I was stationed in Sardinia for two years, 1976 - 1978.

    I was with the Sub Squadron there (I'm a non-submariner however) aboard the USS Piedmont which was a sub repair ship moored at the NATO sub base on an island just off Palau, Sardinia

    I lived on the island of LaMaddalena and had to ride a boat to work every morning.

    @2chiefsWe always stay disconnected. Even before retiring. We only take one phone with us and it's off before we get out of the cab at the cruise terminal and locked in the safe once we get to our cabin. I only use about 15 minutes of our C&A internet minutes on the last day to do our airline check in and print our boarding passes. All video and some pictures I take of our trips is done with a small Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS camera. 

    Sounds like our typical cruise!!

    We started cruising because at that time, it was a vacation “out of reach” so we could really disconnect.  Now, although we do lock up our phones in the safe while on the ship, we occasionally use our free WiFI to check email and do a little work when we’re on long B2B cruises.

    We do the same thing. We will use our free internet time on the ship's computers to check on things. Also good for checking in on flights or hotel stays etc...
