Wow...these sunset pics are phenomenal. How did you manage that! Which camera did you use?

[quote name='maureencruiser']This is actually the first time in a long time I don't have anything planned. Walgreens has cut me to 25 hours per week now that cold and flu season is over. :(

Or, maybe that's a good reason to take time off. :')[/quote]

Yikes, that sucks sure does put a dent into fun money I’m sure. Maybe you should go to the other W part time for cruise funds. With any luck the boss there may read your reviews and say “she’s hired I need another review”!

Where’s the casino video?

[quote name='maureencruiser']The Morning Show is on every day from, 8 or 9am till noon. it's only about 15 minutes long, on repeat. I usually see some before I get in the shower and catch the rest while I'm getting dressed. They ask a trivia question about MSC or the ship. I recall them asking who the ship's Godmother was, the number Europeans, or is it just Italians, are superstitious of (not 13), the Captain's name...[/quote]

Hmmm, wonder if the # is related to the missing deck # on the Seaside??:rolleyes:

Thx for the pics of the show! The costumes and stage props look elaborate and well-planned. We love going to the shows. It's even more amazing when you run into the dancers in the fitness, err torture room, center in the afternoons and get to talk with them about life on board, being a performer, etc. Learned they get weighed in at the beginning of each cruise, and can get canned if they go over weight and don't get it off. What a cruel fate to have to starve on a cruise ship with buffets! :eek:

I'm a little late to the game but I thoroughly enjoyed your review! I look forward to when you cruise again and following along live. :) Thanks for the laughs.

Re: Casino to the poster asking about the Ultimate Tx Hold 'em table game... My hubby & I are also addicts of this particular card game. I saw on one of the youtube videos (don't remember which one) a scan of the casino floor and spotted the table that had the appropriate betting circles! Celebrity and Carnival both have TWO tables of that game and it is rather hard to get on the table frequently. ESPECIALLY difficult on a Carnival Premier Casino cruise.

I've got bad news and good news. The bad news is the casino video just won't upload, there were 186 slot machines, though. Some other drunk needs to go count, see if they come up with the same number. :')

The good news is I've been off the Seaside for less than a week and I'm GOING BACK! I just booked for September 15, going to the roll call now. :cool::cool:

Oh, BooBoo, it's not cheating, we ALL read ALL the reviews. If I'm not cruising, I'm planning my next cruise...

What would Tyrion do? Hmmmmmmm....

I am a person who cruises. People who cruise need to keep cruising. :hearteyes::hearteyes:

Way to Maureen. Glad that you enjoyed it that much that you want to repeat

Same itinerary?

Will you review again or just go and enjoy. I know how much work the reviews must be specially live ones.

Just need a heads up though if you are going to do a review so i know not to get a library book that week as it will never get looked at

No, Eastern Caribbean this time, three glorious days at sea. I'm not sure about the review, but , probably? It's harder to do with other people. They think you're crazy sitting in your room for hours a day, typing away.

[quote name='Yorkvillain']You can never have too many maaah-gaaah-ritas.[/quote]

Aaaah, the sweet, dulcet tones of a Boston accent. It's wicked pissah. ;p;p

Word of advice: if you do another live review, I highly recommend using the tapatalk or cruise critic app. Take a picture with your phone and then add it to your post. You can then delete the photo from your phone forever. You don’t need a photo sharing website. It’s very easy and MUCH less time consuming.

I would never do another live review again if I still had to use a third party site.

Thanks for another hilarious review, Maureen! I'm late, but I just read it all at one go and think I need a drink now. ;p We've done Divina and had a good time, so I think Seaside may be in our future.

I know that's what people do. I just can't imagine typing all that on a tiny little keyboard. I'm not really a phone person. Maybe I'll try to practice these next few months. I've taken maybe a dozen pictures on my phone and that's only because I saw something interesting while driving... You know I'm elderly... :(:(

Are you bringing the “fun police” in September? If so, that’s great as it puts more humour into the already hilarious situations!

[quote name='#55worktoplay']Woohoo can’t wait! Wish I wasn’t afraid to cruise during hurricane season![/quote]

Honey, Hurricane season is 6 months! There's always plenty of warning if a hurricane is brewing. Your Caribbean cruise might become a New England cruise , but, that's wicked pissah, too!

[quote name='maureencruiser']I soon realized that the notes were exactly, 100% Neil Diamond's 1972 hit, Song Sung Blue. [/quote]

YES! THIS EXACTLY!

Every time I heard it I would start singing. My wife and kids eyes rolled hard every time I did.

Glad I am not the only one who noticed this.
