  1. Ok! this is very late and not live at all, but here is my blog! I'm sorry it wasn't live, I was just so ready to sleep by the end of the day! Departure day-Saturday 3/2- We woke up in NJ to 4 inches of snow on Saturday morning, but thankfully, we did not have a huge delay. Our flight took off about 2 hours late which was annoying, but I was so glad that we were not on the Southwest flight that clipped another plane’s wing and caused a huge delay for those passengers. After landing we went to visit our friends in Coral Springs and since we were late getting in, we were much
  2. My SIL and BIL have bough SO MUCH art on the many cruises they have gone on, and then my BIL brags about how many thousands of dollars they have spent on the stuff. And they have totally bought into how much they will be worth, etc. And my husband and I are like, WTF? who spends that much money on cruise ship art? They are not buying art from dealers at home, so it's not like they are collectors. I just don't get it. To each his own, really, it's not like it's unattractive art, but it's a lot of money. Like $25k on a sculpture. He just wants us to know that they have that kind of money to spe
  3. Oh that's good to know, I was thinking I would play bingo but I didn't know they don't all have winners. It shows you how much I play bingo.
  4. Hello all! I will be attempting to live blog as much as I can from Allure of the Seas, March 3rd Sailing to the Western Caribbean. I am going with my husband Ken and our 5 year old daughter to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We picked Allure because it was recommended as a great kids program and I liked the itinerary, I wanted to go back to Cozumel. It's a first cruise for my family and my 3rd, though it has been 11 years since my last cruise on Navigator OTS in March 2008. She looked very different than she does today! Before that I was on 2 different Carnival cruises for which I
  5. We'll be getting off Allure as you are getting on! I'm sorry we'll miss you, it sounds like our 5 year old daughters would get along very well, we have a social butterfly too! She is very excited about Adventure ocean!
  6. I am super late responding to this, I guess my notifications were off...I checked and there are 4 ships in port that day. That's a lot! Last night my husband said he would like to get off the ship because otherwise it's 3 straight days on the ship, which is fine with me, but it's his first time and he's not sure he'll like that. I told him then he can do the research and pick an excursion because I am out of ideas for Nassau!
  7. After much deliberation, I finally made a decision this morning and cancelled our dolphin encounter and booked El Cozumelino. Between not feeling great about supporting dolphins in captivity and really wanting a relaxing beach/pool day with a swim up bar, we figured that was the best way to go. I'm excited about a relaxing day!
  8. I was quoted $265 plus 12% gratuity for the vow renewal. which I thought was very reasonable.
  9. Thanks so much for all of the feedback, I'm sorry I disappeared, I was at work and then got busy and couldn't get back to the board! We are going on Allure and it's my first time on the ship and my husband and daughter's first time so that's why I thought it would be fun to stay on. This is what I was thinking, we have other beach days planned. Nassau is actually the first port we are going to. I originally planned to stay on in Roatan because I have been there before but then I heard Nassau was the one to skip. I think this is what is making me consider
  10. So I'm torn between these two options. I was pretty set on staying on the ship for our Nassau stop and enjoying as much as we can when people are off the ship. However, I was out with a friend last night who has been to Nassau a few times and said it's a dump, don't do anything near the port, but she really, really loved her Blue Lagoon beach day, and that it was so beautiful. I have read mixed reviews on the experience there, and I really don't want to spend 5 hours off the ship for that port, but maybe I should reconsider. I know it's all based on what kind of experience I want, very su
  11. The only thing I'm going to do is POSSIBLY jog around the track if I'm up early enough in the mornings. Other than that, I'm going to eat what I want and enjoy. Presumably not to the point of exploding
  12. Thanks for the blog, I have enjoyed reading it. We are going on this itinerary in March on Allure. What time did you meet the ride for Maya Chan?
