What’s wrong with Grandeur? I haven’t been on her.

A lot of people love her because she is a small ship with a crew that is very personable.    I think max capacity is just under 2000, which is one reason we enjoy.  She only has chops, giovannis and Izumi so a lot of people that want more choices, arent happy.  

She doesnt have all the extras like flowrider, sports court, no promenade,, but she is a nice small ship that is easy to get around.  I always felt the crew was able to get to know you better and go above and beyond.

Tonight Dick and I celebrated our 60th anniversary at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. 
We can’t eat like we used to, but everything we did eat was delicious. My ribeye was perfect, but I’ll be eating it for the next couple of days!

Lots of leftovers for both of us. 
or I should call them planovers. 

 

 

Wishing you a very Happy Anniversary!

HAPPY 60TH ANNIVERSARY🥰    Looks like you had a wonderful evening with a delicious meal.

Steak and eggs for breakfast?

Steak for several meals! We discussed ordering one ribeye and splitting it…8 oz each, but Dick wanted a filet, so I decided this was one time we won’t consider anything but getting what we want. 
It will be 60 years before we do this again!

OK...doing the happy dance!!  Whoooo...hooo!  

 

Finally got confirmation of the switch from Allure to Wonder (way faster than I expected!).  They were able to keep me in a GS for all three legs...but would have had to transfer on last leg to another GS.  

 

Call to D+ desk, and with some investigation between the rep on the phone and myself, we took us out of all three cabins in favor of totally different GS (all same deck) and all in same cabin in better location (mid deck starboard).   Plus she was able to transfer my missing OBC over for the TA.  

 

Now that really made my day...heck made my week!!  😄

We miss your pictures and your posts 🌺

 

Thank you, Dani.   
 

Things have been crazy around here lately, and I see I am already 66 pages behind.  Not even any pictures to post at the moment.  Hopefully next week things will slow down for me.  
 

I am sure I will be catching up on lots of adventures, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. 

 

Hope everyone has a great day.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind thoughts. 
There were plenty of bumps in the road over 60 years, but we weathered them all, so far.
We’re fortunate that our children live within an hour, even though the next generation seems to stay where they graduated from college!

We lost our youngest to opioid abuse, but his twin daughters and their husbands and little ones live close by. 

Life overall has been good to us; retirement brought time to travel, so we have visited all 50 states, 7 provinces, and at last count, 34 countries. 

We’ve seen and done things our younger selves never dreamed of. 
Cruising and Cruise Critic have added so much to our lives.
I enjoy each and every one of you, love reading the minutiae of your lives, and feel like we’re friends, even though I haven’t met you.

I'm so sorry. This seems to happen to a lot of people some of who are friends of mine. Thank goodness you have the rest of family close by.

Thanks...we are so used to traveling on the older ships...next year will be quite a change for us, doing both Odyssey and Wonder.

Congrats!  I am so jealous. That new suite neighborhood looks sweet. And not needing to change cabins,  excellent.

Some Solarium time. Haven’t been too impressed with CK so we’ll try WJ for lunch.  First time there this week.

Best thing about CK is the view , bought the restaurant package for all meals on our 8 day allure cruise.

Love those relaxing sea days.  Jack would be happy with a 7 night cruise to nowhere.  I love the port stops.  Opposites attract, right?

Right!

Dick loves to take off in every port and just wander. I’m done with shopping…when you live in a condo, you have to decide what needs to go when you bring in something new…except for jewelry!

I love being on a quiet ship, getting something good for lunch, and bringing  it back to sit on the balcony with my Kindle and eat in peace. 
With bad knees, I don’t enjoy the beach any more, and I sure can’t get into or out of a chaise lounge. 
The beauty of a cruise is that everyone can do what suits them, and feel totally safe doing it.

I had a friend who loved to sit in bars and listen to conversations. She always said a cruise ship was a dream come true for her. Friendly surroundings and no worries.
