  2. I want to thank all of you for your prayers, well wishes, thoughts and concerns, I really appreciate it. The hurricane is over and GONE! It was rough for a couple of days. It started raining hard with high winds Thursday 9/13 and we lost power that evening. The winds picked up all day as well as the rain. Friday was pretty much the same,high winds, rain and crap flying all over the place outside. Saturday the wind and rain subsided and I could get outside and start cleaning up. Today (Sunday) very little wind and no rain, clean up continued and will do so for a few more days (my lot is almost

  3. Well we are back from our fabulous cruise aboard the Celebrity Summit! The weather was PERFECT and the seas the whole time were like a lake! Hubby and I have only been this year on the Grandeur of the Seas and the Celebrity Summit, both pretty much equal in terms or age and size. The Summit is a beautiful ship, but in much need of an overhaul which is happening this February. Comparing just the shape of the ship to Grandeur, Grandeur won out on this one even though she hasn't been drydocked. We were in a Grand Suite on Grandeur and an accessible Sky Suite on Summit.

  4. So glad you were able to speak. I will say the best ER plan sometimes will fail, but we do try to have a plan. Sometimes the weekends can produce a slower response as well depending on when your agent typically works daily. Now you can relax and start planning all your fun excursions and shows for your cruise!

  7. Hey there, I wanted to check in to see if you were still having issues reaching your agent. I now have power and internet (for the time being) so wanted to check in. Please feel free to email me at [email protected] and I can make that payment for you. We do have an ER plan for all our agents and there is an office number to reach the Admin Staff (425-396-7505) I can say that when in a storm sometimes things happen that will take an agent offline unexpectedly, but we have offices all over the US so there is a person covering or the office staff that can jump in and

  10. @Rimmit, did you find there was a lot of scenery to enjoy while sailing up and down the coast, or were you too far away from land when not in port to really see anything? I've always felt like this is a cruise similar to Alaska, where if you can afford a balcony room and don't mind paying for it, it would be beneficial just for enjoying the scenery as you go along, but I'm starting to think that an interior room could be totally fine since the view can be taken in from plenty of places on the ship; helipad, Viking Crown Lounge, Windjammer, pool deck... With a balcony, I'd only have a

  11. Dear Guest, We wanted to update you on a change in our programming. Our Sitters at Sea program will be discontinued beginning on September 30th , 2018. We are dedicated to offering a variety of children's and teens' activities, but unfortunately we'll no longer offer in-stateroom sitter services. We are sorry for any impact this may have on your vacation. If your sailing departs on or before September 30th and you were planning on using this service, we will happily accommodate your request if sitters are available. Once onboard, please visit Guest Services regarding availability.

  13. This was such a gift for those of us who are booked on this cruise. What a fabulous blog and beautiful family you have. If it's ok, I may inundate you with many questions from now until July! What a wonderful experience I had going through this with your family.!

  15. Loved it! I have never considered an Alaskan cruise. I figured that would be a bit later in life. We love chasing the sun and beautiful water of the Caribbean. But after reading this I’m going to start investigating Alaska! It doesn’t hurt that you can now get a nonstop flight form Pittsburgh to Seattle. Thanks for potentially opening up our cruising options.

  20. Thanks for yet another amazing blog, @twangster! I’m actually glad that you took the time this go-round to just enjoy the trip, take the pics, then decide how you wanted to tell the story afterward. You’ve done plenty of times where you pulled from your time off to keep us up to date and virtually cruising along with you, you more than deserve a chance to tune out, seize that trip to the fullest, and enjoy it to the max! I know you have your editing tools down pat, but I still can’t imagine the time post-cruise needed to cull down the photos to the best ones, edit them, come up with a nar

  21. Wow! That was easy and new itineraries haven't even come out yet! @Matt and @AnnetteJackson pick any week in July 2020 and 5 of us here can go already! Add that to the group of Insiders who I know want a Canada/NE sailing and I would say you have many interested already

  22. I have a hard time with voices on the telephone and I have a really hard time understanding accents on the phone. I'm not a racist if I want to talk to a (white, black, brown) American on the phone so I might be able to understand what they're saying.

    (REAL) Cuban Cigars

    carpe diem - in the majority of ports, these "authentic" cubans will be very over priced and questionable at best unless he is aware of the subtle nuances to tell a fake from a legit. i'd be more than happy to share (offline) my overseas sources that are without question, legit Cuban cigar distributors. That being said, up until the past 10-15 years, quality of true cubans has rapidly declined as they became more readily available through mass production. I used to be a huge fan but now i've found so many more non-cuban cigars that are leaps and bounds much better than the current
