  1. I actually only check in every so often because talking about cruising right now is depressing...
  2. I'm still not sure I care about what rules are put in place for me to cruise (get me out of my house) but I'm still not comfortable being around groups of people and won't be until I have the vaccine. My first cruise will likely be local so I don't have to fly. Who knows, it's not like there are any options to cruise at the moment.
  3. I've cruised solo a few times and any event I tried to go to was poorly attended. The last one was a trivia where there were a bunch of couples which in my opinion is the exact opposite of what was expected. Most definitely not looking for a relationship while cruising but I do love meeting people.
  4. I tip a bit for almost every drink/coffee on every cruise. I have absolutely noticed the level of service changes - the staff makes it a point to know my name immediately (which I actually hate for some reason but I do 100% appreciate the effort) and make sure to come back to me. My friends noticed it at the pool - the bartenders would always come to me for my drink order. I don't tip more than a dollar or two, I'm not a huge drinker - it's a smile and a buck. I appreciate someone waiting on me and they appreciate me appreciating them. To add - I notice this with female and male servers/barten
  5. Congratulations!! Why are you guys moving? (did I miss that?). A brand spankin' new house is amazing! Every little space is yours and no one else has touched it. It's a great time - I'm in NY. One of the co-ops in where I live sold in hours and the previous owners missed out on two opportunities to buy a new house because everything is going so fast. My friend just sold her house that we thought would take a while because of the work needed..sold in 2 weeks.
  6. It's sooooo bad but the cruise stuff is fun.
  7. Didn't do that itinerary but loved Anthem and Cape Liberty. It was my first solo trip - I had no issue navigating Cape Liberty, everything was pretty easy to get around. (except the machines were down post cruise and there was a 2 hour wait outside (cold) until they were back up). Anthem was a lovely ship with so many places to sit and relax.
  8. listen, If I can "order" a cruise on my Prime account...I may be for it...
  9. We just had a tropical storm (I think it's considered that, my power was out for over a day and I'm just catching up on the news) and that was one of my thoughts. No hurricane season to worry about this year...just the hurricane's themselves. (WHICH STILL SUCK BTW...lol, I'm still dealing with it clearly)
  10. I feel like this isn't talked about a lot and I agree 100%. I've cruised solo and with others and the same with land vacations. The resorts in some countries are awful with the staff following you and making unwanted advances...and in my case, I didn't feel comfortable going to the managers because I was afraid of some sort of retaliation. Never felt this way on any of my cruises, I've always felt safe walking around the ship. For me, I'll always choose to be by the water. I grew up on the water, it's my happy place. Add just about everything else that has already been mentioned and
  11. Sorrento's does the trick if you're hungry and drank a bit but I don't think I understand eating this on purpose...during the day...undrunk....but I may be spoiled, I don't eat pizza out of the New York/New Jersey area. I haven't eaten chain pizza since my college years.
