During a recent moment of reflectiveness as I was staring out over the ocean I was thinking how blessed I, and all of us here, are to have the means to be able to do what we love. So, to all of my C.C. friends.... Cheers.

Cheers OB! I loved reading your cruise posts. Enjoy your sea days and have a safe trip home.

Cheers OB.

Make the most of your last couple of cruise days buddy.

I'm sad to admit we haven't watched this season yet. All on DVR.

 

I met Phil Keoghan at Dulles back in 2004. They were filming a show called No Opportunity Wasted. They were surprising someone at airport while I was waiting for my bags. At first I thought it was a news crew ambushing someone for a story.

 

I ended up being an extra applauding. Even signed an image release. I ended up with about 2 seconds of airtime. No SAG membership for me.

If you were shown on the broadcast you should have been paid.I was an extra in two movies and even though I was not on screen I was paid.My friend who was on screen got paid more.

YES, all the meds definitely tear him up.   He gets an upset stomach on a regular basis.  He takes the omeprazole (prilosec) everyday and that seems to help.   His doc says he is allowed alcohol but in moderation.  Of course a cruise doesnt count for anything in moderation.

I am not allowed to drink alcohol either .Toby drinks for me at parties or on cruises.So nice of her.

My GI doctor prescribed omeprazole to be taken once a day but it raised my blood pressure.The doctor told me to stop taking it .I take extra strength chewable gas X instead but that does not help that much.When I see my doctor shortly we will discuss this.

I didn’t know about ginger altoids. I’ll have to look sometime for them. I have bought the candied ginger before from Whole Foods.
 

I booked the 30th cruise several days ago. Since I’m already on the Allure and also have February 5th booked I figured why not just stay on. 😁 Mike isn’t on the next one, but he will be back for the 5th. Maybe we will see you around the ship. All your b2b cruises sound nice. 🥂 🛳

We bring chewable ginger on cruises.

You should have talked OB into staying onboard.     Enjoy your sailings.    😍

This trip has been rough for me.  Our waiter didn’t want me to order the same desserts due to my tree nut allergy, so he has been checking on everything with the chef, including desserts.  I am eating things I never had before such as molten lava cake and I am full all the time!!!!!No one ever bothered to check on desserts for me before, just said I better not have it…..

They really are going above and beyond these days.    That is really nice he is checking for you. 

How is Charlie feeling this afternoon?

GasX is basically just simethicone. It breaks up gas. It has no antacid properties. That is why it doesn't help you. TUMS would be more effective than that stuff.

I was using TUMS but it adds to my Calcium intake .I am on 6 tablets a day of Bone Guard Forte.

Don’t forget to send him the bill!

 

Enjoy the last minutes of the cruise.  There is a headline on my internet browser from a CNBC posting of “Airlines cancel hundreds of flights ahead of winter storm”.

 

Maybe you will get to spend an extra day in Florida.

So well said, OB.

Blessed indeed.

Glad you had a smashing week on Allure, and all the "stairs" [and painkillers] aligned 🌺

I am very much hoping that those hundreds of flights are supposed to have been taking place on Saturday and not Sunday.

Good News/Bad News

 

Bad News:It has been snowing for 8 hours straight

 

Good News: We have zero inches of snow because it has been above freezing .

 

However,it does not look to be good much longer.

I woke up to flurries and weather people saying it will be just a light coating and this is not part of the nor'easter as that won't start till late this evening but it is still snowing here too.   Ground is covered but roads are wet which will probably make it worse as it will all freeze up this evening when the "real snow" comes.

You forced me to click the link.  So far the flights cancelled are Friday and Saturday.  The problem with whenever they are cancelled is the chaos can flow over to your Sunday flights.  However, if you have a confirmed seat you should be good Sunday.

Hopefully, originating at a warm weather airport will help. Planes might not be in position to originate at cold airports and they should have a good amount of time to clear runways if the storm moves though as it is supposed to. Whatever... it is not in my control. My house will be there when I arrive. If this had happened last weekend there would have been no ship to board when I got there.

I think all the walking has been too much for him.  Does Eric have any problems with his stomach from all the meds?  I told him he needs a stiff drink but his doctors told him no alcohol😢I have to drink for him 🤪

Marietta...sometimes, a gal has to do what a gal has to do!  All kidding aside, I sure hope Charlie feels better.  Especially not fun not feeling well while being on a cruise.

There you go get Charlie a Caribbean mule that has ginger beer in it.   Or maybe just get him a ginger ale. @DaniDanielle

I've always wanted to try ginger beer...a Caribbean mule sounds good!

To all those currently sailing, I forgot to mention above in addition to my best wishes for OceanBoy, that you also have safe travels home.

I switched my cruise from the Symphony on 1/29 to the Oasis on 3/6/22.

I actually scored a direct flight from my middle of no where city to Miami.

My phone has been blowing up today with my old flight notifications, my flight would have been really delayed because of Chicago.

I am so glad I switched sailing dates, I can’t deal with delayed flights.

Ok I need some advice.

I can’t imagine cruising without an alcoholic drink but I really don’t drink at home.

How strong are the mixed drinks on the ship? Say a mojito or a cosmopolitan?

 

I don’t know of any mocktails that aren’t really sugary.


thanks

After my newly refound peace, I go down to my cabin to retrieve something and THIS is what I find😐😏🤨..... Back to the nearest bar....

First time I’ve seen an envelope for additional gratuities on top of the gratuities. 
In the old days we’d find several ready to be filled. 
Then came automatic gratuities. 
Then came cruisers that liked to give a little extra to people that went above and beyond. 
And now there are expectations to be met. Or ignored.
