Hello texascat!

 

I'm also on this cruise, and the "It's nearly showtime!" email that I received from Princess, specific to my booking, stated the following in regards to MUTS:

 

Embark on a journey with Movies Under the Stars®     
         
Enjoy these feature films in our open-air, poolside amphitheater (popcorn included!): 

 

First Man (2018)
Starring Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy. Directed by Damien Chazelle. Rated PG-13, 2h 21min.

 

Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)
Starring Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton. Directed by Bryan Singer. Rated PG-13, 2h 14 min.

 

Btw, I noticed that you said you were in Ohio, do you also have a connection to Texas?

 

Just another curious Texan here. ;.)

 

yep, I lived in Dallas for 10 years. My h nicer winters!

Cool...and yes, no doubt better than it is up your way, especially this past winter!

 

That said, even I'm looking forward to some time in the Sunshine State, and points further south!

OMG!  It is Wednesday! I am so ready to get in this ship!  

 

 

of course today I was talking with my sister and she tried to freak me iut! I always got in a day early, but since I'm cruising solo this time I am flying in on Sunday....I booked my air and transfer with Princes, so they guarantee i will make it to the ship.  Prayers for on time flights.

We just got the email but not didn't mention times etc and said they will send another email at approx 10 pm tonight.  We live about 1 hr from port so hanging out here is not a problem.  Just hope cruise isn't cancelled or ports cancelled.  They can cancel Princess Cay and it wouldn't bother me in the least.

The email just said there is a "technical issue" and they are not able to go at full speed.  Another email update is supposed to be sent by 10 pm EST to let embarking passengers know what time to show up.

Off to the port! So I hate travel day and normally go in a day early.  For this cruise I am flying in the day of the cruise...no time for mistakes! 

 

Last night we received notice that the Regal would arrive at Port Everglades about 7 hours late.  No problem, gives me some wiggle room.  But than we received notice that everything was on time.

 

Got up at 3am, got to Dayton International airport and on my plane....the day is starting!

 According to the marine traffic website, they did arrive shortly after 5:30 this morning, so it does appear they arrived on time!.

 

Looking forward to getting on the Regel myself  in a couple of hours!

Day one went very smoothly, I had a great day! Both of my flights were on time and smooth.  When we got into Ft. Lauderdale, early, the transfer check in was at the baggage claim area.  We got on the bus and were at the port by 1145 and on the ship by noon.  This was the fastest check in process I have ever experienced!  

 

When I got on the ship I had lunch at Alfredos for lunch. It was wonderful. the rooms were ready.  My cabin is great, nice balcony.  After muster drill I went back to my cabin to wait on my bags.  Some of us met up prior to dinner and lost my daily allotment in he casino.  It has been a really long day, so I'm turning in early.

Enjoy your cruise.  My cousin and I did that itinerary on the Regal in January.  We had a great time and I hope you do, too!  

 

Have fun!

Monday morning, I was up early and had a great sit down breakfast in the Concerto Restaurant. Very good food and service.

 

After breakfast at the elevator, a lady asked if we heard the captain's announcement? Of course not, she said that if you would like to see a spectacular event, grab your camera and go up on deck. A military ship was tugging a glacier to South America for a event and you could view the event on the port side.  Everyone was on deck with cameras and binoculars looking for the iceberg in the Caribbean. 

 

The captain came back over the announcement and said...'April's fools!'  lol at dinner our table mate said her husband heard the announcement and jumped out of bed to get ready. He ran across the hall to get the 2 boys up to see this event.  All went on deck. only to find no iceberg! Everyone had a great laugh.

 

My day was spent at the pool, I did not get off in Princess Cay, but enjoyed some relaxing sun at the pool.  At around 1 I decided I had enough sun for day one and went for a walk. only to find the great spa special and was whisked away to be pampered.

 

Wonderful day on the ship, no fooling.
