I have an even harder time with ladies with armpit hair.  Sorry if I offend anyone. I know it is getting to be more common these days. 

oh I so agree.  That is gross too.  Eric and I went to a local diner for breakfast and this women with a sundress on raised her arms to pick up her baby, her hair was longer than Eric's armpit hair.  Disgusting.   I was telling eric since he couldn't see her...next thing you know she whipped out her boob.  It was literally right there while she was fussing with her baby to get ready to feed.  

I have no problem with breast feeding, I did with both my boys but never did in public, nor do you just let your boob hang out at a diner.   She saw me giving her a look, like really lady, but didnt care.  Her husband didnt care either.

@singinalotCrystal, I just love your fantastic photos of the wild west.  I can't wait for you to exit the plane in Greece.  I did some note taking from your thread.  Cut and paste, a wonderful thing!

 

 

 


thank you so much and happy to hear! Trying to provide all the little details I can

How bad can it be really to have to move a few doors down the hall either way, all the GS are on the same deck, no big deal.

It's a big deal if you booked all the cabins so you are in the same one. Who wants to pack up for each cruise? It's a PITA.

That sounds awful. I'm not even sure I could do that. :classic_unsure:

 

@ReneeFLL 

 

Agreed especially the no water part. It sounds unhealthy. I get dizzy if I don't drink water.

 

 

Couldn't agree more.... and it is HOT here.... I don't know what our "founding fathers" were thinking....

@dani negreanuAs usual Dani, this thread is very enlighting.  I hope you enjoy more dancing in the upcoming nuptials.

 

Thank you.

 

The mother of my DIL (I really don't know how to call her, what's the "term" in English) just phoned in tears -- a lot of people are cancelling their arrival to the wedding (due Sunday evening), and she's so sorry for her daughter.

 

She so wanted for her to have a very nice and happy wedding, after being single for 40 years, and finally found the ONE.

 

The "problem" is that the groom comes from a very big family (he has 5 older brothers), a huge "tribe", and, of course, the wedding is held in the groom's city, where all live. Supposed to be 250 from his part, and 50 from "our" part.

 

My in laws are both from Romania and only child (like me), whereas the groom's family is from Morocco, and each parent has 5-6 siblings.

 

It's a long way to travel in the rush hour of the evening (from our home -- more than 100 km), and it's very near the border with the Gaza strip, where you'll have 20 seconds to rush to the nearest shelter, if "they" decide to launch a rocket/s...

 

So many people decided to just transfer money gift, instead of traveling so far, and returning home in the middle of the night.

 

We rented an apartment for the night after the wedding (15 min travel time from the wedding venue), along with our DS2 and our in laws. It's an additional expense, but it's the only family we got....

Being replaced with Wonder of the Seas.   OK...so maybe not so bad after all.  I am currently on hold with D+ rep on the phone.  I just want same GS for all three legs.  They need to make this happen. 

 

This could end up being a lucky break for you rather than a PIA.  I think all of the Wonder GS are in the new Suite Neighborhood.  I think they've put all GS on deck 17 with Coastal Kitchen and the SL.  Deck 18 has the OS, CLS, and RLS along with the outdoor suite sun deck.  The suite sun deck looks great from the artist's renderings.  Lots of other nice, new looking things around the ship, like the new Aquatheater.  If they move you to Wonder, like the other thread makes it seem like will happen, you should get a nice upgrade in ship quality for free.  Fingers crossed for you!

She was on the phone last night with Crown and Anchor but she never came back and told what the outcome was. Probably told her to hang tight,  have other earlier sailings to handle first before her cruises that are 13 months from now.

 

If she doesn't get the same cabin for all   three cruises it isn't the end of the world anyway. So what if you have to pack a few clothes into a suitcase for the move. The cabin steward will take all clothes on hangers to the new cabin, plus take your packed suitcases directly to the new cabin anyway. Switching cabins is nothing to fret about and get this upset about.

Hopefully you'll be ok.  I read on another thread they are replacing the Allure sailings with the new ship Wonder as they wont be sending to her China in March as originally planned.

Looks like she will do 7 or 8 cruises out of Fl then do the TA crossing to Europe for summer sailings.

 

Thanks..indeed waiting for RCI to get the transfer done.  If it works out OK...I may have just scored on this.  Brand new ship...price protected.  😉

See if they will be switching you to Wonder OTS. :classic_biggrin: The news of the switch just came out today, so don't do anything yet.....:classic_biggrin: Fingers crossed for you. 

EDIT: Just saw your prior post! Good luck. 

 

Supposed to do it automatically by the 22nd.  Just call me "blue girl"....as I will be holding my breath for it to all work out as hoped.  😉

Thanks!  Feeling much better about it already.  Actually now love the idea of going from my GS cabin on Allure to GS cabin on Wonder now.  Did not know about the suite neighborhood.  Thanks for info as well! 🙂 

 

Still hoping to keep all three legs in same cabin, hopefully if they transfer us before opening up to general booking...we should be able to make it happen.  And contrary to what "some types" may think...having to switch cabins to me is a PIA.  Have done both, and found keeping same cabin frees you up on turnaround day.  Since this is for four weeks...I like the idea of staying put.  😉  It is a personal decision.  If I have to move...so be it...not the end of the world.  But not what I booked originally.  

 

Plus keeping same cabin, we always let our cabin attendant know to not bother with doing turnaround service for us, which they are very grateful for...makes their day go by faster. 

 

Will post when I find out.

Southwest opened its schedule for January. Terrible flights from Providence to FLL. This has never been an issue before. Just one more reason to consider cancelling.🤨

That stinks!    How is the airfare?  

 

We are booked to do a b2b on Grandeur out of Barbados for beginning of February and keep receiving emails of flight changes and then saw new health protocols set by Barbados end of August that are making us consider cancelling and just drive to NJ port and do one of the 9 or 11 night sailings on Anthem.

I totally agree with you.  That or when there is some stubble under there with white caked on deodorant.  I might get flamed 🔥 for this, but all sleeveless tops should be banned for both men and women, or any of the other 200+ genders that someone might identify as. 🧐

LOL...another reason to not wear a tank top for me.   Have scars on front of both shoulders from skin cancer removal.  😛
