Thanks for posting this review. You did a fantastic job with the M&G and other activities, you've brought back great memories. I was a pleasure to meet you and Sue. Love the scavenger hunt ideas. Debbie

This is fabulous!  You two look like so much fun.  How come I never meet awesome people on my cruises?! 

 

Especially enjoyed the Alaska Airlines love.  My best friend is an operations manager for them.  

 

Thank you for this - I'm sailing December 29th and haven't really gotten into the mood - I originally said no but decided to go pretty late in the game, which I'm happy about.  Looking forward to reading the rest.

Thank you shadow me boy for the early XMAS present, your reviews are great.  The aft cabin looks beautiful, I'm sure you really enjoyed it.  Looking forward to reading the entire adventure!

 

Your welcome! Glad to have you along. 

 

The Aft Balcony was spectacular! Susan wants to sail in another one!

What a wonderful scavenger hunt that was. I can't believe all the work that you put into it. Great pictures so far, too. I'm looking forward to the rest of the story. :classic_smile:

It was a lot of fun! Trace and I put a lot of work into it, and I definitely would not have been able to pull it off without his help.

Yay. I am so glad you have started your review. I have been waiting patiently since your Alaska cruise and was hoping I’d see the start of this one before I fly to Sydney to hop on board the Jewel this week. Susan must have been so excited with the cabin (by the photos I am not so sure about the scavenger hunt...although it was a cool way to see the ship) and I love the way your reviews flow along with all the wonderful photos. Thank you for sharing.

Julie, Auckland, New Zealand.

 

Enjoy the Jewel. Let me know how that sailing goes!

 

She was ecstatic about the cabin, and I enjoyed it as well. Yes, it was a good way to see the ship. Thank you for your kind words, enjoy before your cruise, and catch up afterwards.

We did an aft balcony on Epic a few years ago. While I loved the view, we found it to be very noisy. Should have been no surprise since you are over engines. Did you find that it was noisy on the balcony?

We are out there. We love meeting new people. I met so many great people!

 

We love Alaska Airlines #iflyAlaska Being from the Pacific Northwest Alaska is very convenient, plus they fly all over the country. We use miles to get free and reduced tickets all the time.

 

Have fun on your sailing! Enjoy, relax, and have a drink for me (I like Raspberry Mojitos).

It wasn't very noisy because the duck tail helps to mute it and spread the noise out.
