Thank you for sharing your trip with us.

 

I wonder if you'll run across Riley Tench onboard...

 I did! He was running the e-Muster at one of the assembly stations. So glad to see him and all the rest of the staff.

Speaking of which, how long did it take for muster?

Almost no time at all, if you’ve already watched the video (about a min or so) and listened to the audio (6 short 1 long) on the app, then you just have to go to the muster station, scan your seapass and that’s it!  If you don’t have the app you can do the video on the stateroom TV as well, it tracks whether or not you’ve watched it.

The convenience of this might have some folks reconsider dumping their mobile device in the safe at the start of the cruise.

Thanks for the follow-along!  We had a GS on our last cruise, Anthem OTS.  The Quantum class GS cabins are nice.  Crossing my fingers for Odyssey next year.  🙂

 

Hope you have a great time!!

hi, may i ask , hows the room aircon? is it as cold as pre-covid time?

understand that they had made some air filtration , was wondering if that would affect the room temperature...

 

need to know what to bring for our 10th dec trip...

 

thanks in advance

it is new Air Filter system, drawing fresh air externally , every hour

And how do you know that's any different than before? Anyone can upgrade their home with a MERV 13 filter which is unlikely to make any difference to the temp of the space being conditioned.

It doesn’t seem that much different temperature wise, a little warm for me but I like my rooms cold (usually around 20 degrees) so it should be right for most!

I think what he means is that he doesn't know if it's any different, so that's why he's asking.

 

I gather the cabins are climate controlled so should not be that much different to "normal" air conditioning?

Had a great meal at Coastal Kitchen, food and service were as good as ever. One of the waiters even recognized me from a Mariner trip almost 3 years back.

Don’t you miss being reminded what day it is

 

I think that’s most all for today! Catch you all tomorrow for our first (and only) full sea day! As always if there’s anything specific you’d like to see, just let me know and I’ll do my best to arrange it.

Awesome, thanks for sharing, and enjoying the cruise! 

 

Do they have the typical hotel toiletries ? toothpaste, toothbrush, bath lotion, shampoo.. you know, the little bottles. Apologies for noob question 🙂
