Believe it or not I just booked an Eastern on the Freedom for October of 2012. It seems like some really nice people, Franca, you remember Helen, and some of her friends will be on this cruise. I didn't book this through Doris, but through my other TA as I can't abandon her completely, she has been very good to me.
But I think I will go to the food and wine festival right after the cruise instead of right before the cruise. It's such an easy ride over to Walt Disney World. Here I go getting all excited again.
Not to boast, but I think I now have 13 cruises booked that I have yet to go on, now that's incredible. Believe it or not, I am posting on everyone of them. Unbelievable.
Barry got your address etc. one never knows I may show up one day, I am just a shaking and moving.

Take care all

Poor Bill......tell him to hang in there, Franca......better days are coming!

Got to go clean up for the maids! Check y'all later.
Welcome back, Jane. We missed you!!!!!! Hope you dont mind me pocking at you on your photos of the Girls only trip: it was so much fun, for you and me pocking at you.

Good night. See you tomorrow

No....that's OK, Franca. I love FB!

John doesn't want to book far out either because there are so many price drops after final payment. We've been burned a few times lately.....and I'm not talking a little bit.....we've lost a lot of money on those price drops.

Enjoy your week-end, everybody.

Hi All:
Well it has been a good few weeks off. My extended birthday really helped the economy. Now it is all about facing work on Monday. Ugh!

Santa Fe and the kids were great. We stayed in a hotel and had many dinners that were truly top rate. We went to Los Alamos and saw the Bradford Museum with mock ups of the bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki (sp?). We saw beautiful country and beautiful sunsets. We went whitewater rafting and walked our feet off seeing galleries and shopping. Our friends, Janet and Paul loved it too. They knew Bobby a little but now know him much better. Flo spent much time prepping for trial but was always with us for dinner. (She is second chairing a murder trial in mid August.)

Next vacation will be our cruise in December. One day at a time.

Bill and John - Hope you are feeling better.
Jane, Franca and Rev - Keep on planning!

Hi Andrea, glad that you guys had a great time!!!!! WOW, you did lots of things: you must be tired!!!!!!!
Flo is chairing a murder trial????? How exciting, yes!!!! Maybe? The best to her........
We are planning....... we got another cruise, today....... I think, if Bill wont change his mind.......but after the March one, we will take a little break..... that is what he's saying, but I know better.... I'll keep planning!!!! Andrea, and everybody else: do you know that we are getting double points for the december cruises, if we are diamond or diamond plus? So, we would get 28 points, for Nov 26 (8 days) and Dec 4 (6 days) woohoo; getting closer to 400 points; we have 377 as of today.
Hope that everybody is having a good weekend! I guess that REV is busy with all those posts...... hahahaha keep it up REV; you are doing a good job!!!!
See you soon, and wish the rest will pop in and say hi,
Franca

Does that mean if I am in a Grand Suite for 8 days, I get double points for the suite and double points for December, making it 32 points?
We might even make it to Diamond plus yet!
How many points for Diamond plus?
Inquiring minds want to know!

Thanks!!!

This is true, so instead of fourteen points, Pat and I will get 21 points, yippy. I love cruising in December. Royal keep up the good work.

Getting excited about all the cruises I have. Looking forward with equal excitement to each and every one of them. But Pat and I are really looking forward to the Oasis and meeting with Ricardo and Natalia again, they are so nice, it is always a pleasure sailing when they are there.

Franca are you and Bill going for seven days on the Navigator in December or only 6, or as many as 9, which is it. I am jealous that you will be visiting the Navigator before I will. I really love that ship. Come to think of it I really love all the Royal ships I have been on! Let's face it, I love cruising.

Later,
Rev

Thanks!!!

Andrea, Jane is right: if you were cruising over 12 days, it would been 4 time the points.
You need 170 points to be Diamond plus!!!!!!!!
How many points you have as of now?????
We will be leaving the Nav, the day that you will be boarding!!!! Tooooooo bad, you can cruise a little earlier!!!!!!
I know that we all have a great time: how we cannot? We are cruising......

Hey guys, look .... my 1,000 post as CRUISEMAMI

REV, we are starting on NOV 26-Dec 4; Dec 4-Dec 10; Navigator OTS......then, I checked twice, and I was right: the Oasis's going to be right there............. so................... maybe????? and Ricardo's going to be there (He's going home on the 17 of Dec)........Maybe????? Who knows...... we will get double points: so, for the Nav we will get 28 points, and if we are going on Oasis will be another 14 WOOHOO That will bring us to 433 points...
I was born to cruise..... hahahahaha

Have a good week, everybody

We currently have 118.
If we get 3 per night for our 8 night cruise, that will be an additional 24, for a grand total of 142. We will still be 33 away from Diamond plus. They are still missing some of our old cruises but I no longer have proof so I am stuck with the number they claim.

Good night all...
Going back to work tomorrow!

My friends,
I don't even want to mention how many cruise credits I have. Suffice it to say that I will reach Pinnacle before our B2B in September 2012 and maybe before that. But congratulations everyone who is cruising in December. That is real good news for all of us.
Franca maybe you and Bill will be top cruisers on one of those cruises, they give away nice prizes, so I hope so.

Have a good one.

We lost few cruises, before the change over, but that was before they (RC) kept records: they gave us 3 cruises, without proofs, then they gave us 3 more, because Bill told them the ships and the dates; but one day I went and check our cruises credits, and they were gone!!!!!! OH well, no matter, any more: we just cruise for the fun of it, and because WE LOVE CRUISING!!!!!!! I got my Brilliance and Oasis block, and that is what I wanted, so we will take one cruise at the time, and see where we will end up!!!!!!!!
We dont know, if we are going up to MA, because Bill needs to go and have stitches out on the 15; so not much time left....... we will see, maybe we can make it for just couple of weeks, or maybe not!!!!!! We are sooooooooo tired, about the whole thing.......!!!!!!
Have a good night,
Franca

REV, Bill decided to get stitches on his leg, instead of having it open, so he could be good, for the cruises....... hehehehe Actually, the doc asked him what he wanted to do, and he opt for the stitches If he left the thing open, it would had taken couple of months to heal properly....... HE WANTS LOOK GOOD for the cruises......
Lots of people are cruising on the 2 NAV, because of the very good prices, so I guess, it will be people with more cruises then us. We were the top cruises, on the last Brilliance cruise, and after that, they took 3 credits away.......It will be nice, but I wont count on it!!!!!!!
The count is now lower then 40 days: we are getting there, little by little!!!!

Franca.....I don't understand why you can't go to MA. You have plenty of time. Can't you fly? I'm sure you could get a direct flight. It would be quick and easy.

My friends,

Well today is door day. The worker bees are here installing new doors for my house (not Pat's). I ordered etched glass encased in golden oak for the den, bedroom and master bath, and golden oak for the other bathroom, laundry room door to garage and two other bedrooms. Today they installing the etched glass French doors for the den, and the bedroom door. I believe they will also, time permitting, install the other oak doors. We shall see what takes place. Sure is a lot of noise around here.

Have a good day.

I dont want to fly; plus, I dont know what will be going on with my mouth; so mister Bill, said that we will be going all summer next year.....
Bill has few more appointments, that I can change...... but one day its one thing and the next is different....... You know how it goes!!!!!!
We really dont know, for sure, until he goes for his stitches, on the 15 of Aug, so, we will wait and see.
We can go up for couple of weeks;
