So sorry, @George C, that you're experiencing the same mediocre food we had on Beyond. Glad we didn't pay for any specialty dining.

 

Greg @Sea Dog, I've spoken with the F&B manager [when asked by sheer chance about my opinion], detailed all the missing things in Ocean View, mainly only chicken, no beef, no sea food, no fresh fish. It seems that all they've done was "dully noted"... 😢

 

Hopefully your concerns will be addressed. It's good you said something.

Grandma in waiting. 
 

Christina is now in her 38th. Week.  
 

Her doctor asked her if she would like to be induced.  She goes. “Do I need to be induced?” He goes. “ No just giving you the option”. She goes. “No let her grow, safest place for her”.

Beautiful pictures. Hopefully you will be a Grandmother soon. Best wishes to everyone.

+ 6, Debbie & Eric, @Sunshine3601

 

 

+ 1, like the new fireplace too 

 

 

I'm quite torn between asking about our friends here, who didn't post for a while, and between thinking that we've been "together" for a long time now in this thread.... therefore,.....

 

hopefully "they" know by now that we're here for "them", and "they" can "come and go" whenever they feel like it.

 

Quite a dilemma...  What are everybody's thoughts?

I think most regulars here would appreciate being missed and asked about when they disappear for a while. 


I look at it this way. If I didn’t post for a while without any prior explanation, then came back to find nothing mentioned I would probably think “gee, no one even noticed I was gone?” I think it can’t hurt to just ask.

38th week and he suggested induction??? I can understand 41th-42th, may be, if "nature" is lazy...

 

I agree.  My oldest was two weeks overdue and I was scheduled for induction on the 15th day but went into labor the night before.  My middle DD was induced at 11 days past her due date.  Youngest arrived on her own 7 days late.  I will say the induced labor went very very quick.  Not ideal for a first birth because there’s no gradual increase in intensity, it’s just BAM-hard labor.  
@Lionesss your daughter looks great!

I tend to agree with that.

A CC regular but not on this thread has not posted in 23 days.I posted a message in the Floataway Lounge about his absence.He and I also e-mail and he has not responded to two e-mails.He is an elderly gentleman and I am worried about him as are many of the people who have responded in the Floataway Lounge.


There was a gentleman that people were trying to contact on CC earlier this year, but he hadn’t posted in about 5 or 6 years, and emails were not answered.   Who knows what happened to him.  He was a model ship builder, and he kept a thread going for about 5 years, as he detailed his building of a remote control, Voyager of the Seas.  His workmanship and attention to detail was stunning.  I think a couple on here followed his work back then.   If you have never seen that thread, it is still a fascinating one to still read.

Like Deb, I would feel nobody noticed I was gone if I were away for awhile.

I agree. As long as mom and baby are fine let the baby decide when she wants to make her appearance. 
 

Be safe. 


But I say if it gets near the end of the year, do it and get that tax deduction.  But, then again, that would be close to 42 weeks.

מצאתי שאני יכול לסמן שפה זרה, לתרגם אותה ואז אני רואה במהירות אנגלית.

Thank you all for your Anniversary wishes to me and Jack.

 

John, I really am flattered and impressed that you went out of your way to send us Hebrew wishes.  Jack is out running errands and will love reading your and Dani's posts as well as the English ones.

 

I once thanked everyone by name for something posted awhile ago on another thread.  I forgot one person who actually took offense.  At first I thought she was joking but nope, she wasn't.  So, this mass thank you will have to suffice.  Please know I think of each and every one of you individually with kindness and gratitude.

IMO, I see no problem with mentioning them on a thread and doing a "wellness" check.    We all go thru stuff in life and sometimes it is just nice to know that someone is thinking about you even if you cannot respond right away for whatever reason.  😃

What did you not like about it?

 

When we cruised on Anthem's 1st year, the shows were We will rock you (WWRY), Spectra and the Gift.

 

I've read the same opinions about Gift, like Helen's ( @FromSea2ShiningSea). Actually, it was unanimous that WWRY is one the best shows and as of Spectra -- the "jury" was "divided"...

 

I decided to book the 3 shows, mainly because we don't go to other shows/comedy, trivia, quest, love & marriage, which necessitate a good command of English, not to mention my shy DH's participation....

 

I said to myself: "I'll see nice costumes, dance, effects -- I really don't mind if the story 'doesn't make sense' ". It is free, I don't have to be anywhere else, just give it a try.

 

I rest my case 😉

@George C I agree with you re the food.  Not only the food but service in the MDRs.  Of our five dinners we had acceptable service on only two nights.  What is especially puzzling is we’ve sailed several times on Edge and Equinox since resumption…and they both had better food execution and service.  I would have thought the newest ship would have the best!

I think OB is asking about The Book on Odyssey though and people are talking about The Gift on Anthem.  I have seen the original The Gift and the newer, revised The Gift on Anthem and the improved version is a lot easier to understand since the narrator basically tells you the entire story.  I am not sure if The Book is the same as The Gift.

My daughter is a Dec 31 baby. Expenses (so that I don't have to hear the you are depriving me line) are way more than tax deductions! 🤣🤣

Do you go for a special "thing" or just a little holiday get away?

Just to get away, we have been here before earlier this year in April, wanted to see what it was like around the Christmas Holiday.

 

Nice to get away from the Kitchen remodel too.

 

Just had a wonderful dinner down by the water at The Frying Pan.

 

My Wife had the Flounder and I had the Fan Tail Shrimp. It was excellent.

Do you recall a few years ago on the other thread that you,Dani and I post on and the woman who was a regular for many years who had not posted for quite some time.We were all concerned about her and the end result was not good.

I hope that H and Bob are okay and begin posting again . The other guy that I posted about never posted on this thread but as much as I post on this thread I post much more in the Floataway Lounge and probably more to him than anyone else.I am very worried about him.

@Jimbo enjoy your week in NC!

 

In addition to HBE, @bobmacliberty hasn’t posted in a while.  I thought I might see something from him after his Bills beat up on the Patriots last light.  I hope everything’s okay with both of them and they’re just busy with holiday stuff.  

 

I'm here and all is well.  Thanks for the concern.  I've decided that I'm spending too much time online...not just here but on YouTube and other forms of social media.  I want to significantly reduce my online time and focus on other things.  I'm not quitting cold turkey and will stop here periodically, but not nearly as often.  We'll see how long that lasts. 😜

 

Oh, and Go Bills!

We only found the food OK on Beyond (non suite).  Maybe we were expecting too much as most people say Celebrity's food is better than RC 

The cakes in the cafe looked lovely and I enjoyed the Solarium Bistro for a light breakfast and lunch 

The daily snacks left in our room were truly awful 

Edit to say I meant to reply to George not Lennie, sorry
