John&LaLa Live B2B from Symphony 10/26 and 11/2, Great Expectations 🎂


Recommended Posts

Sail away on Helipad - 5:45

 

We rushed down to the Suites & Pinnacle sail away. It seemed well attended even though the weather was threatening. 

 

Rick made bad jokes😉🤣

Money shot.

They served Coco Loco in a beach bucket. 

Sadly, Paper straws just weren't up to the task 

@A&L_Ont would be making a Siledenfil joke about now😉

 

We didn't stay long, dinner at 6pm

MDR Dinner

 

Decent menu, I like the apps,  so Laura indulges me. She does like the chicken parm, more so now that they swapped out the mashed potatoes for spaghetti. Unfortunately,  it wasn't very good

One of my favorites,  pablano corn soup. I have them leave off the cilantro oil

Pretty good ceviche

I always take a photo of the table card so I can remember names. Very important with MTD

Table 512 has ridiculously large chairs and is on the balcony. Deck 4

Huge chandelier,  I'm hoping Oasis gets a new one in drydock

The view down to 3

I had the lemon sole, and no dessert.  It was uninspiring.  We enjoyed the service and hope to be back tomorrow. 

 

Next up 1977

So Harmony MyTime starts at 6:30 and no earlier, but Symphony you can go at 6?

I just switched from MyTime back to early traditional on Harmony because 6:30 is too late. 

I’m getting befused!!

Yeah....this^  I just found out about the Harmony time, and now need to change our Thanksgiving cruise next year.  Seems like 6:30 would make some show times difficult.

I was told by ship staff that Amazon will deliver to the ship.

 

I bet MB has one next week.

 

I had to check these out on Amazon.  Looks like a great idea.  Do they work?  Love their motto...#suckresponsibly.

Ohio, I have no first hand knowledge. If you look at the description they raised like 1.8 million on Kickstarter, and have 4.5 stars with 134 ratings, so I would think so. 

 

Plus imagine the jealousy you'd invoke when  pull that bad boy out.  Love the hashtag, would also like to see  #re-suck

Exactly! I was looking forward to dining at 6, the one choice evidently we won’t have!

@John&LaLa

Am following you and @aring75.  Enjoying both very much.  Is it possible to get a picture of you taking a picture of aring75, while they are taking a picture of you?  Would be like a crossover thread.  I mean Laura is already in their thread (from last year I think you said).  

 

We haven't run into each other yet, but I'm up for it

My planner wouldn't let me reserve anything earlier than 6:30 even though I tried reserving right when reservations became available. When I get on the ship I will go right to the dining room to see if I can change to a earlier time.

John and LaLa,

 

Finally caught up!  Enjoy cruising with you two (and seeing pictures of the adorable Belle--we have  two of her Scottish clansmen).

 

Noticed that about Harmony.  We like to eat by 6:30, too.  I'm still reserving for 6:30 and hoping if we go down earlier, we can eat earlier.  We're in a JS -- can we eat dinner in CK?  We were able to try it one night on Quantum in 2014, but I have no recollection of that meal; would like to try it again.

 

I'm looking forward to next week, too!

This would be great! 
 

John, I saw you guys at the M&M, but we were a little late so missed out on much of the “mingling” part. Will try to keep an eye out for you.

Harmony tries to accommodate the JS passengers.  CK manager is Ace. We go 2-3 times per week

I looked into my crystal ball and this is the Suites and Pinnacle gathering for next weeks cruise...............are you ready????

 

pictures-you-don't-see-in-the-history-books

 

So, as a magician, I would actually expect to see a picture instead of a blank box

 

just sayin

 

I think we enjoyed 1977... which is when we graduated from High School....  and we are going to a classmates property for a bonfire Friday night, it is supposed to get down to 30....
