Trip, I have already visited your review and left a comment as the Photobucket Phiasco has cursed your pictures. I'd advise stopping and switching to Flickr-just sign up and let the rest of us enjoy your always stellar photos!

 

Norris, heed my sage counsel

 

 

 

Norris my friend,

 

You are indeed a lifesaver! I have heeded your message and ditched the Bucket for Flickr. I have uploaded the missing photos and will post them again for everyone to see later. Thanks for your help. Bucket had too many pop ups that almost gave me a nervous breakdown and it was really slow.

 

Love the pics of you and Carol when you get off at each stop. We have every one of them from all our ports. They are must haves for us.

 

Have a great day and thanks again for your help and this great review!

The bus will stop here for 20 minutes. My advice, borne out by the pictures from the bus on the way back down, is to rent a car and drive up yourself. There are many spots as we descend where I wish we could have stopped and breathed the air and savored the tranquility. There are a lot of people at the top.

 

THIS IS A HANDSOME PROFILE

In the video I incorrectly guess that there is an Oceania ship in town with us. It is actually the Crystal Serenity when I looked at the stern through my zoom lens on the Canon 3Ti as we tendered back later in the day.

Oh Happy Day!!!

I am always disappointed when I click on a Photobucket photo as it doesn't tell you anything about the photo-Flickr tells me which camera and lens I used and the settings I used to get the picture. Indispensable! You can also click on the Camera model and it will take you to photos shot by Flickr users using that camera-and in my case it is always a case of "I must practice and learn how to use this thing". Other people, if you set your privacy to public, can comment on your photos and give them a thumbs-up which is nice to see.

Great decision! Now we can see what you saw on your 12 day cruise!

I'll be following along.

Hi Norris,

Judy, Judy, Judy-how I envy you the time to spend 25 days on a ship!

Never too late to catch up. Even people who are in the back seat saying "are we there yet?" can drop out, remodel the house, start a family, learn calligraphy and then pop back in a few weeks later and see if I have stopped posting, then can read at their leisure.

As long as they get my message of Peace Love and Understanding (and Guinness)

What's so funny about Peace Love and Understanding?

Great to see you here!

The Silhouette (sigh)....that's my most-read report so far and was a great introduction to the brand.

Thanks for stopping by to say hello!

Norris,

You really need to do a New England road trip some day. We did it back in 2010 and it was amazing. We camped for three days in Acadia. A truly amazing National Park. I'm sure that your shore excursion only scratched the surface. Here's a link to some of the pictures I took in Acadia. Hopefully it will peak you interest in returning for a longer stay:

BAH HABBAH



The tour guide had us repeat after him the pronunciation of this lovely part of the world .



We weren't in a hurry to get back to the ship today as it was so pleasant ashore and small coastal towns are my bread and butter (and I'm a two-pats of butter kinda guy!)



I was born and raised in one as you have seen.



As you know from previous reviews Carol has a Bench Finder app on her phone and it found us this one





 

 

We noticed dockside restaurants with the word Lobster on their menus. Hmmm-we have never had a lobster roll. Carol went unto Yelp and researched the lunch possibilities and came back with a name and address of somewhere that was liked mucho. Google maps would lead us there. It was not on the waterfront but a couple of blocks inland up a gentle hill.

37680757524_201221ed4b_b.jpg

 

 

38339807606_443bddc770_b.jpg

 

 

I went inside to enquire about seating and found the place stuffed to the gills. I saw the table-assigner lady and put our name down for a table for two. I reported back to Carol "it's packed"

No wait until you hear the buzzer vibrate technology like on Princess at the MDRs.

I watched for 5 minutes while a guy tried to parallel park his Volvo- a 25 point turn at least. I was relieved to discover when he emerged, red-faced and in a sweat, that it wasn't our Captain Tim Stringer in a rental.

Across the street sat a cute little Theater



37680753204_138144c0af_b.jpg

 

After 15 minutes or so, with people coming and going through the door a head popped out "Carol, table for two?" and we were in!

Hi cibaygirls, I know we have met before in one of my things so nice to see you again! Elvis C is correct.

Those "gurus" I came across in the midst of watching videos by dozens of experts over the past year and I mentioned them for their teaching ability. There are many loud, trying to be funny or goofy, hip, boring, droning on in their bedrooms kind of guys. Start with Mike Browne the Englishman first for the techniques and how to take good photos, then Anthony Morganti for Lightroom well-explained A-Z in a calm manner, then Serge Ramelli the French artistic guy for LR and Photoshop tutorials where he ads drama to everyday shots. I would leave Serge until last as you'll get the basics from Mike and Anthony.

Have fun!

John, I know I have to drive there during my retirement years. Thanks for the link. One day my America from the Road book will be put to the use intended (it has maps)

Shore excursions are surface-scratchers indeed but they are the icing on the Cruise cake for me. Carol is Mistress Sea Day. As mentioned I did drive from NJ up to Rhode Island one time and also NJ to Boston in 98 but wasn't hugging the coast along the way. This trip was a reminder of the eye candy out there waiting for us in a few years.

Thank you!

Norris

On board, and anxiously looking forward to this report. Will be on the sister ship, Royal, in January 2019. Looking forward to your review of the ship.

 

Also, just off the Crown Princess from the Oct. 4 - 15 Canada/New England cruise.

 

Is that your MGTD? I have been a British car nut for 50 years. Just got back fro the UK and the Goodwood Revival meet with 165,000 other people

Ken, that "MGTD" is actually an "MGTF". It was only made for two years - '54 and '55. Mine is a '54. After TFs, came the 'all new' MGA. I have an MGA in the garage/shop, about halfway through a restoration/engine and tranny rebuild/paint job. I also have a daily driver '79 MGB roadster.

 

Hence - the "MGnut" handle. :D

 

I bought my first MG - the '57 MGA - 1975.

Ken, Howard is indeed an MG nut. I remember British cars as well and in fact had a friend who was mechanically inclined who had an MG and we'd enjoy drives around London. Luckily most British cars when I Iived there had stick shifts so that when it wouldn't start which was often in the damp climate with touchy Weber carburetors you could get a push and start it in 2nd gear.

Parking on a hill was always a great idea. No Brit can surely forget Lucas, the auto-electrics manufacturer known as the Prince of Darkness for their products' failure when needed most like headlights on a dark country road suddenly deciding it was nap time.

Buying a used car in the UK in the early 1970's was like Russian Roulette and I got my brains blown out a couple of times.

Fond memories....

Anything to drink? said Julie, our perky waitress, shortly after we took our seats at the back of the Thirsty Whale restaurant. Um, gimme what a Thirsty Whale would drink!

38339824946_9290a39d59_b.jpg

 

I didn't take long to decide, nor long for the waitress to return for our orders. They turn the tables fast here due to the demand with 2 ships in port.

Fresh delicious lobster and a bowl of clam chowder each (even though I ordered the lobster variety)

Carol had coleslaw as her side order whilst I had my favorite food and they were crisp and hot

My body feels good and my mind at rest having had my first lobster roll ever but it also told me that what I need in my life from here on in is more. No-not more cowbell, that's a given but rather more lobster and a whole one all to myself. That would be remedied the very next day.

As we walked I had to stop occasionally, distracted by something pretty, and there was plenty of that to go around in Bah Habbah.

Carol had walked on, not knowing I had stopped but I caught up with her by the harbor not far away. While she tested and evaluated a new bench I poked around taking photos

Now, many of you cat lovers have written in asking about Little Snowy and how can we go away and leave her for 11 days? Rest assured we had a fine cat sitter, Chris, from a reputable company visit her everyday to feed and scoop. She mostly hid from him in the boxspring under the bed, but she did take some treats from him. He sent us daily e mails to assure us all was well.

Hi Norris;

 

Super long time lurker; I've read all your reviews and really feel the sense of awe in your writings/musings/reportings. I was so happy when you enjoyed yourself on a Celebrity Ship, and read with interest to see how our experiences compared.

 

DH and I are booked on the Regal for next year, and are having second thoughts due to pricing. We are in one of the corner afts on Dolphin Deck, (for shade purposes) and until now have been quite happy for the booking. Well, I got to browsing around, and found an Eastern Carrib itinerary on the Equinox for the same time period with the price almost the same as the Regal for a Royal Suite. Wow! I said, that can't be right. I called my TA and indeed the price was within a few hundred dollars of the aft corner suite on the Regal. We have the Sip n Sail on the Regal, but received the 'all four perks' on the Equinox.

 

With what you know from cruising Princess, and accounting for itinerary, what would you do? We have been on the Sapphire, the Emerald and the Grand on Princess and have received super service, but with the Suite perks from Celebrity, we just are twisted and tied at the moment. Any wisdom or advice would be appreciated.

 

Thanks, Scanditaly.

Norris, after several days of working on it I am finally caught up! Having grown up in New England, it has been a wonderful trip down memory lane for me. I heartily agree with those who have suggested you take a road trip through New England when you are able. I know, so much world to see, so little time. I have the same problem, and I seem to keep adding to the list of places I really want to visit! :eek:

 

Your little Snowy is adorable! :D

 

Now that I'm all caught up, I will be here until the end. I've saved some pillow chocolates from our wonderful cruise on Koningsdam to enjoy as I follow you and Carol along on the rest of your journey, so no need to send me any. :p

Hi and thanks for coming out of the shadows! I'm glad you like my reviews.

Comparing the Suite experience Princess vs Celebrity I would take the Royal Suite for Luminae, Blu, Michael's Club and the Butler plus better Room Service experience (hot food with all items arriving at once), reserved seating at the shows plus all 4 perks. The Royal Suite won't be aft (which is our preference) but the X Suites experience is superb.

I would have to go to the X website to remind myself what all 4 perks are but I know that Gratuities and a free Beverage package (the classic ) and Unlimited and useable Internet are included. We have never stayed in a Royal Suite so I imagine you get complimentary specialty dining in some great restaurants.

Hope this helps!

There are no forward views of where you are going on the Regal unless you book the Sanctuary which you see up ahead in this shot taking the whole deck width. We have a booking there-$40 each for the full day 8 am to 5.30 pm on our Sea Day

Last tender from shore was 7 pm so the ship could sail at 8 which is the time we were sitting down to dinner. Sailaway from an anchorage off shore from a sparsely populated town wasn't a must see/photograph.

Before sailing I had considered and discussed the Chef's Table Lumiere experience with Carol but we decided not to try booking one. The WineMakers dinner sounded good too-less elaborate. We like dining alone is the bottom line really and we like choosing what we will eat.

I don't think the topic is entirely off the table for the future though.

As we are siting between courses in the Concerto I see a stack of menus or wine lists outside the Wine room and pull one over to take a peak.

 

I like the cover which is shaped like a wine barrel, a nice touch

HECTOR SINGS!



19f4UmFXTjA

 

For us it's one of those Magical Cruise Ship moments beyond our everyday experience and if you have read my Caribbean Princess review you'll have seen a couple of clips of him entertaining the whole restaurant as he walked around the tables singing.





When he came out afterwards I greeted him and told him I had videotaped his singing and also that I had put the Caribbean Princess videos on youtube. He asked my name and recognized it having watched those videos. He came by later as we were leaving and walked us out telling us to let him know if there was anything he could do for us, like prepare our favorite pastas. Carol said cacio e pepe (Pecorino Romano cheese and pepper) and my nomination was for spaghetti all carbonara (with ham and egg).



We headed off to our show-Born to Dance

On this day we walked off the ship and walked around Bar Harbor a bit, then had lunch at Galyns (lobster roll and chowder for me and fish for DH.) Afterwards we did the tour of Acadia in a 10 passenger luxury van with driver and guide. Because we did not rush to get on the first bus, our bus only had 8 passengers so there was lots of room to spread out on the 4 bench seats. Our guide was a former park ranger and he explained how Acadia was started as an area for wealthy summer homes which were destroyed in a forest fire in 1947 that resulted in the land being turned into a National Park. He pointed out the many ruined stone walls, stone staircases and foundations in the area and explained how the fire affected the flora and fauna in the area so that we could spot new growth as opposed to old growth - very interesting. The tour include Thunder Hole, the lighthouse and the summit of Cadillac Mountain with a stop for popovers and blueberry lemonade in the park. On the way up Cadillac Mountain we spotted a porcupine walking along the road. The guide said he had never seen one so far up the mountain. All in all it was an awesome day! It had been many years since I had visited Bar Harbor and it was just as I remember. Truly magical.

 

I had wondered what that other cruise ship was - I thought maybe a Holland America ship, but now I know it was Crystal Serenity! Thanks for answering that question!

 

That night we ate at the Chef's Table. It was a lot of food. Frankly, I was mostly full after the 4 appetizers they served us in the kitchen so I barely ate the wild mushroom risotto and could hardly touch the massive entree much less the huge dessert. All and all it was a great meal, just way too much food!

Another Fan signing in late with good reason. In October when you started this story we had just returned from a Trans Atlantic cruise from Southampton to Fort Lauderdale on the Caribbean Princess. And, that had followed our ride on the Ruby from Vancouver to Seattle to Alaska back to Seattle.

 

So, my list of Honey Do's was.....pages...long. Today I just finished upgrading the guest bathroom in prep for the Hungry Hoard that will fall on us for the Holidays with knife and fork in hand.

 

Mrs 4x4 was really bummed out when she found out that Hector had moved off the CB. She had decided that he was her main attraction to go to the MDR. Three different cruises he sang to us.

 

Your photo's bring back good memories of our 10 day classic Canada and New England Cruise on the CB in Sept 2015 from New York North to Quebec City. Yup, Hector was there also.

 

Will continue to follow along and will sign in Next year to catch your Trip Report when you get back.

 

Thanks

Bob

I am finally all caught up! Wow, those Bar Harbor photos were gorgeous!! I've never been there (and perhaps I missed my chance after years of taking long weekend trips to Maine), but it was great to see such a beautiful town through your eyes :) Thanks again for posting!
