Nothing  better than an ice cold one by the pool , orange slice optional.

Thank you for the laugh!  We can all use a little laughter in our lives right now.

Seriously guys, thanks for your response. Should be on Independence right now, this was to be my first solo cruise (with Elbo’s blessing) and I was looking forward to doing a live thread. We’ve been doing our best with social distancing, my boss just closed for the next 2-3 weeks, Elbo still goes into the office though I think he will start working from home soon. We miss our adult kids terribly but this will pass and can’t wait for our normal lives to resume.  We’ve got an October cruise scheduled so keeping our fingers crossed for the actual sail away. Love to all of you and stay safe!

Thank you so much for taking the time to make us all smile, and/or laugh out loud.  This was great!

It was the best of times - it was the worse of times - - - glad you made the best of it !

 

I betcha that going through security - check-in - registration was a snap and that

Priority Boarding was to die for !

And did I mention the personal escort service though out the ship - no lines - no waiting !

Now about that beverage package - the mini-bar was complimentary as well as that

wet bar - no extra fees or surcharges for going over the limit !

Dress codes - make you own rules !

Nice that the crew could join you without reservations !

Regarding the dining and show reservations - Free-Style couldn't be better !

And after the cruise the disembarking and door to door service impeccable !

 

Something about clicking those ruby red shoes together and you are not cruising Kansas

{Michigan} anymore !  LOL !

 

Who was your cruise travel agent for this alternate cruise - someone personal ?

Don't let that TA Escape Breaking-away on the Getaway with the Bliss and Joy in a hot Epic Encore pursuit -

the Sky is the limit sailing off into the Sun-set with high Spirit-s with Gem-s Pearl-s and Jade-d Jewel-s Star-ing

into the Dawn of the next day morning - certainly some Pride of America must be enjoyed !

Leonardo awaits in the wings - - -

Enjoying your posts. Made me smile. We should be on our Tahiti cruise instead I fixed dinner for 6 tonight. At least it was in the 40's today. Colder with rain in the forecast.  Maybe I'll sit on our deck this week with an umbrella and dream....

I'd be suspicious of Elbo. Any waiter inviting himself to dine with you (and doing other tasks) is just asking for a bigger tip. Just saying.

I noticed you don't have to deal with chair hogs - how nice.

Hope you are enjoying the day and not having any rough seas.   Anxious to hear more.

 

Ukigirl, in the picture of you in the hot tub, I think you resemble Jane Seymour.

You are so sweet! If you saw me now though....least I’m saving money on makeup and hair care products.

aren't we all.  I have had on make up once since 3/14, and that was so I didn't scare my kids when we had a zoom family gathering.

I hope you can get a nice pedi on your cruise.  I'm stuck at home and need one desperately - I may have to get my my box of old implements and polish and give myself one.

Beautiful day in Labadee we are the only ship in port. The sand is so white and pristine! RCL has changed their drink package policy, instead of one drink you can now get a case without anyone questioning it. I’m thinking it’s because of the help, Elbo seems to have disappeared, just wait until I get that survey to fill out 

 

Notice the wildlife, when I get home I’ll have to research to see if these critters are indigenous to Labadee.

 

Met a wonderful vendor, she said to say hello to everyone and can’t wait for all of you to visit and help support them. I didn’t even barter for her jacket, paid full price since some of these evenings out on deck have been a bit chilly.

 

Waiting for the kayaks and they also offer bike rides now, they had a pre-cruise special for only $499, what a deal!

 

I think tonight might be formal night.
