Vista / Live / Solo - May 27-June 2 2018...


Recommended Posts

Yes, I inquired about an all inclusive at the RIU, but as a solo, they just brushed me off and said nothing available....

In a way, you got off easy. When I (male) was a quasi-solo at an AI (came with a friend, had a falling out, hung out by myself), I got discriminated against. Whenever I walked into the club or the casino by myself, guards spent a lot of time on their walkie-talkies. One night, some guys tried to follow me out of the club (presumably, to my room). I reported the incident to security, but they did nothing. Mind you, it was a garden-variety AI, not one of those Sandals or Hedonism places.

 

Today, I would have complained to corporate. But I was in college at the time, and didn't know my options. It put me off going to AI's for nearly a decade.

I went by the dining room, and someone actually did show up tonight. Unfortunately, it's elegant night, and I'm wearing my Trump t-shirt, so I'm pretty much excluded from any dining room, anywhere...

Out of curiosity- has anyone from the ship been following and recognized you?

 

Following?

I mentioned this thread on my current one because of the great pictures,

and I noticed the 'hammer and cycle' red shirt walking through the buffet, but thought 'Nothing' about it.

The opp has great pictures, a great sense of humor, and a great thread going, ENJOY! :cool:

And the 2 threads converge... Dun dun dunnnnnnnn......

 

So far no one has specifically known who I am, and I believe there has been at least one more commenter that is on board right now.

 

Suffice to say, I look like just a random person, nothing special.

 

With that said: I am now going to try and spin this review back in the direction that it was going before I (yes, it was definitely I that stirred the puddin'when I should have just been drinking and having a good time) where was I?

 

Oh yeah, turning the review back to where we were heading before all of "that" happened. I should have never inserted "that" to begin with, knowing it might anger or offend 47% of the audience...

 

Starting right now, no more of "that"...

 

Good morning, almost Cozumel!!!

.. and some clouds...

Wow, that picture looks like some sort of Ansel Adams type stuff. I swear it's in color, though.

Let it be known that I like to stir the puddin' when it comes to being PC...

On the subject of your T-shirt, I say “go for it”. We are big Trump supporters, and sailed during the inauguration, and were disappointed that it wasn’t shown on any big screen on our ship (NCL Getaway), and we had to watch it in our cabin. There were many people onboard that were furious it wasn’t being shown, and lined up to complain at Guest Services.

Now, imagine that your body is a well cooked piece of asparagus... Lean forward and touch your toes. Put your arms to the sky, and stretch. Let all of that negative energy go.

 

And, we have now moved on...

"Did he just say he was going to make Mexico great again?"

 

No, but he is going to stimulate their economy today... He will probably drink enough margaritas to bring them out of recession.

Nothing better than being, "Ready, Willing, and Able". Ahhhh.....tequila in the land of tequila!!

Yesterday when you had the whole fried fish it reminded me of the little bar/restaurant on the East side of Cozumel, Play Bonita, that prepares that same dish, along with some monster margaritas so very well.

Have a great time today!

Preparing my Level 3 bug out bag for Cozumel today. I have a private driver picking me up at the terminal for an adventure on the wild side, AKA the East side, where there is no electricity. Only ramshackle beach bars and giant ocean waves.

Most of the places I go only have menus in pesos, so there's no conversion to do. Trust me, I will also be bringing a fat stack of American dollars...

Elegant night, not so much. Long pants and a decent shirt are the minimum, on the Vista at least... I do have other clothes, I just had not planned on eating there anyway tonight. Plus, my Trump t-shirt is getting some strong reactions, both for and against... I love it...

You sound like my husband, he loves to wear his to see the different reactions, complete shock:o and complete support;p
