Thanks, Sid, for the great review and pics!!  How have the crowds been, some say this ship class can be crowded?  Happy birthday!

Doesn't seem crowded at all, although I haven't tried to go to the buffet in the middle of lunch yet...

Not a single decent game. No pac man. No galaga. Not even space Invaders...

Long gone are the days of those good video games.  Kids today want ones that give tickets instead of good entertainment.

Wow, the Chef's Table has changed since we did it.  Do you still get the complimentary photo of your table and the chef?  They also used to include a Carnival cookbook as a gift.  We used to enjoy the old menu.  The menu you had...not so much.  We are "foodies" but don't like foo foo food that sometimes looks better than it tastes.  Give me a good steakhouse aka Fleming's, a good salad, creamed spinach, and a chocolate melting cake for desert and I'm good!  

 

Hope this port stop is better than the last one!  

 

Happy birthday.  Enjoy being 50!  The next "big" birthday for DH and I is 60...hard to believe it's just 4 years away!  😞

Royal Caribbean something of the seas with us today in Curacao... Also, it's hot out... Really hot.

 

Curacao is one of my favs!  Any plans today?

Not sure I would have enjoyed the Chef's Table either.

Have a good one.....😊

It's amazing...

In Arcade/Video Games we certainly show our age...

I am a few years older than you & in addition to those I would throw in Pinball 🙂

I think Pac-Man came out in either JR High or early Highschool & of course Ms. Pac-Man...

We started @ home as a small child w/ Pong & Super Pong...

I don't know what it is about cruising that makes people so demanding and entitled... I was eating up at the buffet just now, and these two old ladies were just demanding and berating this poor girl almost to the point of tears... She was like "I want a hot coffee, very strong. A glass of hot water. Some apple juice, and some creamer, very cold" keep in mind, this is the buffet, not the dining room. Not that you should treat anyone like that in the dining room either...

I have seen that as well. I'm like get up and get it yourself, the walking will do most of them some good!

My little journey out into Curacao turned out to be shorter than I had originally planned... I left the ship right as we were cleared at 1:30, and started walking towards town... It was hot... I made it up to the floating bridge, but it had just closed for pedestrian traffic to open up... I never knew that was a thing, but this was my first time here, so lesson learned...IMG_20190925_140255.thumb.jpg.670dd6992490107231ce94aec367e0a8.jpg

The guy guarding the bridge said you can walk down there and catch the free ferry to the other side... So, I walked down there... By this point, I was already drenched in sweat. Luckily, I had brought along my cap, or my head would've gotten sunburn.
