Found our sparkling wine & 2 bottles of water last night when we came back from dinner. Got a mixup of getting the Gold welcome instead of Platinum card for laundry & dining, resending the strawberries too.

 

Last night MDR menu, same as 2017 ... make a stop in the Garden Cafe.

Looks like a good M&G turnout.

 

So in 8100 is that a pullman over the main bed?

Yes, a fun one and I won a raffle price again.

 

8100 Pullman is sideway over the main beds, we have 3 single beds so nobody climbing the step ladder.

 

No USB ports in that room or in our picture view OV either. Chair is now a stool.

We are on schedule for PC tomorrow, Ship's live webcam is on & working, but if you can't see us ... here.

 

A few basics ... oh, those 30 minutes burn quickly, 50 gone, 250+ to go but not upgrading.

Just got off the 4/21 sailing and there were painting classes in the card room at least 3 of the days we sailed. I didn't participate, but noticed them in there.

We are here, making the U-turn, starting picking up faint cell signal about 45 minutes ago.de2e44f2c6978c1a6508f46ef5e7b796.jpg

We see you are in PC MKing. Have a great day.

 

Boy, never realized that one menu was a bit racy.

 

Oh, since you'll have nothing better to do, can you ask the people by the pool why they are sitting by the pool but not actually in the pool (CC question of the week).

Docked next to Disney, ship cleared about 15 minutes ago, the crowds thinning out as some are heading down to the gangway. Reminder that no food or fruits are allowed to be taken on shore. La Cucina is quiet while the buffet is still quite full.

Will do later, watching doggie patrol screening incoming goods for the Gem, walking thru the terminal. Heading over to Coca Beach ...

 

Ha ha, I will try to find the answer for CC

Just off Gem 4/28 and enjoyed the entertainment so much. Can't recall the names of the aerial dance couple that performed. Are they still on board this week? Hope you enjoy your week as much as we did.

Here's Coca Beach & Ron Jon. Free WiFi in the stores & clean restrooms inside at the Sheraton ... McDonald WiFi is slow.

 

Outlook for GSC is less than 50:50, not looking hopeful, time for plan B or C. Oh well.

Still provisioning the Gem, lots of onions & flours, etc. Tonight, reservations at Moderno ... should finish before sailing & look out for pier runners late in coming back, Captain promised them a life jacket with name written on it at 8:31 pm.

 

Here is tonight's MDR menu.
