I would play Texas Hold'em when it was first started and they used a dealer, but not now. Just don't like the computer doing the dealing.

 

Yeah I don’t play computerized table games. That’s all they had in the casino in Jamaica.

Off topic for this thread, but do you know if you can get HD poker chips in Progresso?  My son and I stole the idea from you to get HD poker chips at the ports we visit.  I see there is an HD dealership in Progresso, but I don't see a store.  Just wondering since I know you've been to Progresso in the past.  Thanks.  And thanks for your great trip reports.

I actually started that after the last time I went to progreso so I'm missing that one as well. From what I can tell it doesn't look like you can get one in Progreso but you can in Merida...which is what I'll try to do when I return next year.

If there's a dealership you should be able to get one. I don't think progreso has a dealership though. The only one that comes up when I search for it is Merida.

You're right.  The dealership I was seeing is in Merida.  Thanks again.

Yep That's it. I know they have chips because they're online.

It tastes different up here. She did something wrong.

I had the same experience on the Horizon in April. Atrium bar Funship was great. Tides Bar Funship not so much. I think they used dark rum in the Tides Bar.

Speaking of Funship....what's the difference in a Funship Special and a Pirate Punch? And is the cost the same?

Funship has rum, vodka, apricot brandy, and fruit punch

 

pirate punch has rum, amaretto, cranberry, pineapple, orange juice

Finally caught up on your review. Enjoyed it as always. We were supposed to be on this cruise for my birthday on 8/25 but work conflicts/life stuff and then spinal cord injury problems got in the way. 🙄 Already looking forward to your next one. ❤️

I hate it when those spinal cord injuries get in the way. Hope you’re feeling better.

Before I got on the ship I decided to try one of these juici pattis. natchitoches meat pies are much better in my opinion.

Since I mentioned it...this is the Natchitoches (nah-codish) meat pie....spicy.

Oh, it's a fried pie with meat instead of fruit. I get it. I'm gonna have to try that! Looks tasty.

Many of us love it when the Saints win, even up in Philly territory!

😍😍

 

Really should depend on who we’re playing. If you are an eagles fan you should always go for the afc team against an nfc team. Rams next week...pick a favorite. Cowgirls at the end of month on SNF...be a big Saints fan.

Welllllll now! That sounds like a challenge to me! Greg, I'll wager a Funship Special against one of your favored Alchemy Bar drinks that the Cowboys will beat your Saints by a....a.....a....field goal?  What say you? Any other takers? Only problem is, we'd have to meet up on a ship that sails out of Galveston.
