John, make sure the ship is in top shape for us 11/2 cruisers.  🤣

Looking forward to your review, John (your reviews are always so much fun to read and makes us feel like we are cruising with you:). We hope to sail on Symphony next Fall!

Enjoy every minute!

They did a lot of sprucing up the week before as I recall.

 

Really shouldn't be a problem anyway. CLR doesn't board until you do.🤣

@CruiseLifeRick will be adding to fun?

 

I'm not sure. He has appeared in our Roll Call. 

I'm sure he will be on Periscope and Instagram

I post lots of pictures, so if you don't want to experience the wrath of @Biker19  @Milwaukee Eight and others, try and not quote pictures to just say thanks 😉

Use the Like, Laugh, Thanks buttons when possible, that's what they are there for. 

I will be out of pocket a lot, so talk among yourselves when I'm gone. 

I will try and not fall behind more than a day, but hey, it's a party.

Join in, all are welcome. 

Ask questions, I'll try and answer. Remind me if I don't.

Most of all have fun and be nice to each other, and to me. 

If you are onboard, say hi

Looking forward to this. We will be on Symphony for the first time in a couple weeks for a belated milestone bday celebration and I’ve heard great things about it. Happy Cruising

Shoutout #1

 

I consulted with one of the great Live reporters on CC, @A&L_Ont on a catchy thread title. I was not disappointed.

 

He came up with From a Song to a Symphony, A Party 50 Years in the Making

 

Awesome idea, but then I remembered I went with a play on Dickens last year, so I thought Great Expectations was fitting.

 

Thanks, Andrew

I complained about pictures on the old CC. The new software appears to format them properly on MacOS and iOS. If I remember correctly, although your pictures are great, they were huge when displayed on Apple products. Doesn’t seem to be an issue any longer. 
 

I still make an effort to remove quoted photos. I think they are unnecessary in most cases. 
 

I wouldn’t miss these two reviews for nothing. Hopefully you’ll find a Suite Guest to contribute (you could tag ANDY) to this thread from their perspective. 
 

Looking forward to your review and observations, especially on the 50th Cruise.

That's a great title by @A&L_Ont. It's eloquent and elegant.

Background

 

We received this in our cabin last year. It might be the first advert for the 50th Birthday event

Stopped by NextCruise, prices were insane. So I came up with a plan. 😎

Hi John! We are onboard with you both weeks. Just started packing today. Drive to the hotel tomorrow for an overnight before we board. Kinda glad we are driving because I'm pretty sure there was no way NOT to overpack for this cruise. Halloween, theme parties, 50th Anniversary gold celebration, plus all the usual stuff. Looking forward to seeing you two onboard. 😊
