Bliss - Live 4/21

Recommended Posts

This was, without a doubt, the VERY BEST cruise that I was never on....

 

:loudcry::loudcry: I feel the same way!

It took me awhile to finish, but what a great read! Thanks so much for doing this. Now I just want to go find any others that you've done. I wish you had links in your signature. :)

 

Doug, I know why Sue is with you. You are quite entertaining and funny. Women love it when their man can make them laugh (well, at least I do).

 

Sue, you are quite lovely. Best of luck to you guys.

 

I will be waiting for your next live.

This thread is a tough act to follow

 

I have people for our June 2 first Alaska have asked to please mirror your handout for out Meet and Greet and other events!!!

We heard the May 10 crossing they pulled out all the stops for the Meet and Greet of about 300, A free drinks cocktail party and Hors D'ouerves, the officers mingled with the passengers, they had multiple sheet cakes. and more.

Was it much the same for your event?

 

 

I will do my best to produce an events handout

 

So far we have the Meet and Greet for About 250

 

Slot pull

 

Pub Crawl, and cabin Crawls

 

Tiara Night for Norwegian Nightout

 

All your reviews were amazing, photos and incites were amazing!

 

Thank you so much for making our precruise thread full of great info and discussion

 

I will do my best.

We were on the Bliss inaugural and missed out on many of the CC events as we just got so caught up with all the fun elsewhere on the ship! Met a lot of great folks! Doug & Sue, it was nice to meet you briefly in the CB2 at the private event - so funny to be reading this thread now after the fact...and its spurred us on to booking the Encore inaugural! Looking forward to it. Cheers! Kimberley

Hey Doug what about your future cruises, do you have those listed somewhere? I remember seeing that you were going to be on the Bliss Mexican Riviera in October and was just wondering if you're still doing that one.

Doug has too many sailings on the horizon and may have consequences if he decides to live-post for some of them.

I was asking for selfish reasons this time because I’m on that cruise and would love to empty some kegs with Doug in DB2. But I hear you Sue. Thanks for sharing your vacations with us. We are lucky that you are willing to put up with Doug’s late night live reports. Or maybe we’re just lucky that you usually have an early bedtime.

So I felt a little guilty when a non-couple (at least I don’t think they’re a couple) won the Scavenger Hunt...

The problem... I only had one trophy, which Aled quickly staked claim to. Well, Scott just received his own personalized trophy in the mail. I may have had a little help with the inscription...

We actually will be on the 10/21 sailing so you should get your chance.

It might be 2:30am here but I am still howling at this, the anticipation of knowing delivery took place around 10 hours ago and left on porch to why hasnt he gone home to open the parcel and why could no one have recorded the grand opening to see his little face

Is there only one Heidi machine???

 

It's going to be much tougher to spend time with Heidi when that ship is full.:eek:

 

 

 

Oh, no fear. There are multiple Heidis.

I loved the Heidi machine, I like the second game best with the higher bet. It took me a while to figure out it had choices.

Hi Doug:

 

I'm putting together the slot pull for my Bliss cruise next March.  My format is nearly identical to yours; however, did you contact the casino prior to the event, or did you just do it?   If you made a contact, do you have an email that you could share?

There’s no need to contact anyone prior to boarding.  Once on board, stop by and speak with the casino manager about your intent.  Based on the number of expected participants, he/she will likely supplement with additional giveaways.

 

Have a great time!

Hi 

I will throw in my input.  I visited Christina the Host when they opened the Players club on boarding afternoon after muster. She agreed to 3 bottles of wine for 1st , 2nd 3rd prizes.  She also cautioned, they could not save machines,  and to maybe 'scope out' a machine and have someone sitting there to hold it prior.  We chose Quick hits 3 dollars near the Skyline bar ahead of time.  

Good luck we hit a mini jackpot and several more bonuses, and lots of excitement. We did a $15 format, and we all left with 19, the 1st  2nd  3rd prize winners split the small balance 50/30/20(we rounded down the winnings to nearest dollar.
