Breakaway / Live (*) / Solo - Feb-07-17-2019...

Recommended Posts

When I finished off last night, I had just completed the bar crawl followed by more drinks at Vibe... I needed to get ready for my reservation at La Cucina, so I began heading back to my cabin to get ready... This happened on the way. I just started clicking away, and hoped for some good ones.

Now, I was headed to La Cucina for dinner... I basically just ordered everything on the menu that interested me... Beef carpacio, shrimp ravioli, and what turned out to be the best steak of the week, cooked a perfect medium rare...

Then, I just wandered around some more to try and burn some of the ten thousand calories I had just consumed... Is it just me or does that one photo look like someone choking a baby?IMG_20190215_201740.thumb.jpg.2a71f797d698bc1b6386c07ecb9ed8dd.jpg

It 100% looks like someone choking a baby.

La Cucina is looking good. Glad I made a reservation there for my upcoming cruise. Thanks for continuing to share.

I'm here at work now, trying to remember how to do my job... And, to my delight and surprise, I ended up getting paid for the days that I took off... Bonus!!!...

 

More to come later. I have pretty much gone through all the content of my main phone, but there's still a whole lot more on the Droid turbo II...

Hi all!

 

sid_9169 ~ I'm enjoying your review & thinking about what I missed out on when I cancelled my Breakaway cruise in April to do the Pearl TA. This is the 2nd time I've cancelled cruises from New Orleans so hopefully one day I'll sail from there. What did you think about sailing down the Mississippi? Could you see any sights or was it dark?

You had me loling a few times especially the topless story then drooling over some of the food pictures!

Glad you got paid for your days away, sounds like a nice boss you have at your new job!

Looking forward to more of your review.

Reading your posts have inspired me to attempt my first ever live post on my upcoming Bliss trip. I really have found useful information from you and you find some great hidden gems in ports. Every consider posting more about each port as a separate forum? Thanks for posting and I hope the post I do soon will help others like yours has helped me.

Unfortunately, it was almost dark at sail away, and I was at dinner soon afterwards. I didn't really get to see much of anything.

Sid!  Thanks for documenting another one of your trips.  I was on Bliss in December shortly after you, and recently booked Breakaway for July when she comes down to Miami.  I can also attest to the effectiveness of the Rebound patches.  I ordered them after reading your Bliss review, and they worked like a charm!

 

I do have one question for you however...... (pardon my asking)...

 

You (like me) look to be a bit OCD when it comes to cleanliness, washing hands, room keys, etc.  I'm surprised you'd ever eat in a joint like Scotchies.  Can you explain the logic to me?  Again, pardon my asking.  I just always want to try things when I'm in the Caribbean, but end up turning it down since the sanitary conditions are most of the time lacking.

 

Thanks again.

Thank you for your complements, and there's still plenty more to come! I've hardly even covered the actual ship yet... Yes, I indeed do have some pretty rough OCD... I guess that I just have a thirst for adventure and interesting foods, that I just sort of over look things like that...

Love the pics.  I will be eager to hear your take on the beverage package/upgraded package, whether it was worth it, needed, etc.
