Royal Caribbean Cruisers -- How Are Things Where You Are? (was "Routine" ​ 😁 ​day in lockdown... how was yours?)

Excellent!    Did you book another b2b?

No, but almost a S2S.  We will get off one ship and have a night in a hotel and do some laundry, then board another ship the next day. These two aren’t till next January (Liberty and Harmony from Ft Lauderdale), but the dates worked with our house rental. 
 

At least we have one in May to look forward to, and it looks like we will get our grandson from California to spend part of the summer with us again.  Maybe we should take him on a summer cruise. 😁

No, it was WCVB channel 5.  They upped the totals from the noontime forecast.  The map they are showing has all of Rhode Island except the north west corner in the 24+ inches area.  The news is on now and the full forecast should be in about ten minutes.  They are saying the storm strengthen a lot.  At noon news, we were in a 12-18 ban, so big change.

Back to the bar.....

Yikes, even I need a drink now.

 I guess we need to look at possibly not leaving until Monday now.  There goes our visit to Savannah 🤷🏻‍♀️.

No idea when they started it but the guard at end of dock told us we had to wear in the port area and were told again when we got on the water taxi to go to BB Bar and beach.    Then I heard someone tell another person while walking along the "boardwalk" towards BBB they had to mask up.    So they were definitely enforcing while we were there on or about Jan 14th.

Things seem to change week to week, I hope they change again  or I may just stay on the ship we will be there and in St Thomas in 4 weeks .

I only said something because you said you had looked at a forecast. 🙂 

 

I was going to talk about Amazing Race and how some of these men really need to think about what they say to their wives before they do a scary roadblock.  I know I would dope slap my husband if he ever said that they wouldn't have you do a roadblock that would kill you as reassuring words prior to me doing something that had me super nervous!

I hate winter but actually appreciate the updates.

I looked at NBC Boston and it looks like their forecast is 5 hours old and will be updated soon.  WCVB has a 4pm news, so theirs is already updated.  I hope they are wrong but who knows.

One guy was totally disrespectful to his wife on the show that aired last night.Since there are only two married couples on the show it kind of narrows it down .

 

Yes, one was awful as usual but the other is the one that was trying to "reassure" his wife prior to her turn at the roadblock.  They aren't going to let you do something that will kill you is not reassuring.

In St. Maarten with Edge and Club Med 2. Those Edge class ships have an ugly stubby looking bow.

Parabolic Superbow. For very smooth sailings. As told by the Mermaid.

Yup all the shops at Barbados were doing that too.   I don't recall Antigua or St Maarten shops doing it but Barbados definitely did.      Barbados also took your temperature in cruise terminal before you re-boarded the ship.    I found that odd - they didn't take my temp when I stepped foot on their island but they did as I was leaving ???

Too hot. They got confused.

S2S (or whatever you want to call it) are nice too!     Jan 2020 we did 7 nights on Allure out of FLL then went to the Embassy Suites for the night and did laundry at their self serve machines then boarded the Serenade the following day for a b2b of 22 nights.    That was sweet!

 

That sounds like a great idea to take your Grandson on a cruise this summer!

I'm thinking of a s2s for march 2023 and hoping things get better. The test 2 days prior worries me somewhat but I want to make the visit to florida count. Only one leg booked.

 

I sure need a nice cruise dinner or some sun and ocean or something. Heard the last 2 weeks liberty's ports have all been perfect, sunny and about 82, feels like 90 with the sun. My skin hates the sun but I sure love it. 9:20 am covid test. Then I think I will relax. Just so ready to be back onboard. Some caesar salad, shrimp cocktail.. whatever looks good for lunch, some watermelon. Some washing dishes. 

 

First time trying uber, I know I know. I hear they cant drive into the port. I guess just give them a close address. Crossing my fingers I got things figured out. Parking at the hotel and no shuttle. Ancy and ready to get on with it.

Pauline & Graham, your prayers are so much appreciated.😘

 

My side of the family was "lucky" - I've "only" lost my maternal grandfather in a camp, and my dad did forced labor.

 

DH's side -- of Polish descent, not so much....😢

Sending prayers Dani. There's a lot about Holocaust Memorial Day on our media 🙏

OMG 3' of snow!    It has been many years since I saw that much in one storm.     All good with batteries, meds, etc?

Side by sides are a nice treat too.   Let's hope that by March 2023 we are not still worrying about the 2 test day rule.   

I thought you had sailed on a recent cruise or maybe I am confusing with someone else.  

How is your condo in FL?    Hope you have been able to enjoy it🤩

Mask wearing is no longer mandatory in England from today.

 

Great news.

We had to have temps taken and sanitize at one of the St. Maarten shops, plus mask.

Same here, but only one shop which I thought was odd. They must be more concerned about covid than other shops. Hoping they stay safe.

Yep, a moving target. @Ocean Boy posted earlier that today ST. Maarten was laxed concerning wearing masks inside and outside. Enough to drive a person to drink. 🍺

The one thing they weren’t lax about was that darn hand sanitizer. I must have put it on over 20 times while out in town.

I have The Weather Channel on now. No mention of snowfall totals.  They’re all hype, no substance. 

Does Heather Tesch still work there? Mike and her husband used to fly together when they were both in the Navy many years ago. Lost touch with them a long time ago so I’m not sure if they are still married.

Uber can’t drive into the port? That’s crazy, but I guess it discourages people from taking them if that’s what Galveston is trying to achieve.

We were supposed to leave St. Maarten 90 minutes ago but presently still bunkering. Supposedly, the ship changed captains today. You would think he'd make some sort announcement as to when we are leaving. Unless, maybe he did while I was in the shower.

 

Edge departed at 4PM. They did some nice horn blowing but Allure did not respond. That was disappointing. Maybe the new captain isn't into it like the one we had up to now. Club Med 2 is still here. Beautiful night.

 

St. Maarten and Club Med 2.
