  1. Sorry to see Majesty go, but I am at least glad that we got to sail on her before she left the fleet! I honestly did not expect much since the ship was much older, and much smaller than what we were used to BUT that being said the crew was absolutely AMAZING and we had one of the best trips ever. It was proof that the ship doesn't make the cruise it is your attitude and the crew! We got onboard not expecting much but were absolutely blown away by the time we got back to the dock!
  2. Trust me I am active as well, I am a first responder as well as I work part time in the local ER, in essence I am at work well over 300 hours per month. That means that I wear a mask FAR more than the average person on this thread, and to be honest and WAY OVER THEM. But I realize it is a necessary evil at the moment, I am not someone that sits around and just watches TV it has taken me 5 years to do it but I have dropped 120 pounds. That being said going on a cruise and being catered to is one of the draws for me. I would be happy not having to work, come home and get ready to head to the
  3. At this point I really do not want to wear one while on a cruise, but if it meant that I would be able to relax on a cruise ship again, I would wear one. I will say that the requirement would make having a balcony room far more important than before! Being able to grab some food and go back to the room (or have room service deliver it) and just sit out there and relax would be good enough for me. I would spend some time around the ship and would wear a mask but I would also truly appreciate the time away from the public and on the balcony.
  4. It was very tasty! I honestly do not care for aubergine too much, but I could have eaten that all day long! If there were a Jamies that were local then they would definitely be getting my business on a weekly basis! The bread alone would be worth the trip!!!
  5. Please let me apologize for taking so long to reply! With COVID 19 hitting us so hard at work overtime has been absolutely crazy! That being said, we were on Oasis when we had Giovannis and on Anthem when we had Jamie’s. Here are a few photos of our meal! Hope they help!
  6. I have had both and I have to tell you that while Giovannis was good, Jamies was WAY better! I have to say that there actually wasn't much of a comparison while the food at both were great, the food and Jamies was almost like comparing the food in the MDR to the food at CK- not a fair comparison at all I know it sounds crazy but until you have had both you can't understand. I did not think that there would have been such a big difference until I saw the presentation with my own eyes and had that first bite, after that I was in love!
  7. Well, IMHO I am going to say YOLO! You have stated that you have issues that will keep you from being able to do this as you get older, and you are just as much of a cruise junkie as I am! In other words DO IT!!! I know it has been awhile since we all have been able to take a cruise and we all need a vacation, so if I were in your shoes that cruise would be booked immediately!!!
  8. I have not done an aft cabin on an AK cruise, but what I can say is that if I had that opportunity when we booked ours I would have taken it GLADLY. I we had a junior suite on the starboard side on a northbound cruise. Think of it this way you get to see everything we saw but in rather than just getting one side of the ship you get to see both sides and in both directions. I would GLADLY take that spot if you do not want it!!!!
  9. In a heartbeat, I can assure you that I know that I have less of a chance of contacting it onboard that ship than I would at work. We had several patients with it today, so I would gladly love to be able to have the benefit of being on a cruise and testing out the new things that they are trying to initiate! All I ask is give me time to pack and get to the port!!
  10. At this point in time I know that cruising as I know it will not be be like I know it, but at this point I do not care! I will gladly cruise even with the changes, even my worst cruise is better than my best day at work! I will just be happy to not have to make dinner, cook, clean, shop for groceries, or keep everyone entertained! There aren't going to be enough changes that will ruin the experience for me!
  11. Yes @twangster we usually do one or two short cruises with the kids per year, and with the information that you were so kind to provide we will be calling the C&A club and linking them up so we can all get the same credit. And @Lovetocruise2002that is a absolutely amazing idea, nope you are not a monster just a planner! I believe that since you paid for them to get to D+ that they could easily help you to get to Pinnacle status, its a fair trade!!
  12. I only have one thing to say @twangsterthank you and you may have just created a monster with that information right there......
  13. I currently have 67 points, and am about to go up in leave for next year, unfortunately due to the wife being new and only getting two weeks vs my 6 I would have to cruise alone. I know she would not be a very big fan of this but I am seriously contemplating taking a cruise alone which would put me at the Diamond status. I would love for her to go but at this point I am honestly looking at the cheapest cruise which would be at times that she would not be able to go. I know that I would enjoy the cruise, and knowing that I would be able to use my new status on the next cruise. I find it HAR
  14. Just my two cents, but I am going to have to agree with the popular vote here.....I would not and can not fly in the same day. There are FAR too many things that are out of your control that can go wrong. I know how crazy things are and I can tell you that I am a planner and even getting there a day early I still carry some stress until we are curbside. Flying in the day of the cruise would drive me absolutely insane! I know for a fact that I would need to be heavily medicated in order to make the trip to the port that same day.I live about three to three and a half hours away from Baltim
  15. Have to agree with @twangster I COMPLETELY understand the dangers of COVID 19, but also understand that it is not as deadly as they first thought it was. I also know that cruising can resume with certain things in place where it will be safer than going to the local Walmart. I know that they will clean the surfaces far more than grocery stores do. I know that they will also be more inclined to enforce social distancing as well. I have no worries that they can and will do the right thing for their customers, there are too many cameras and people that are going to be pointing the finger. T
