    The build-up. Counting down the days and obsessively checking the Cruise Planner to try and snag a good deal on something. Checking a gazillion excursion websites for each port in an effort to find the best ones. Reading and re-reading the live blogs for our chosen ship in the run-up to cruise day.
    It's hard to get excited and enjoy the thrill of planning when you can't be sure your cruise is even going to happen.

    Yup. I log on to my cruise planner and then find myself thinking what's the point. 😕

    On our recent Adventure cruise, one of our tablemates had certain dietary requirements that included one evening asking for a plate of boiled green vegetables topped with sautéed mushrooms. She also told them about a fruit and soy milk dessert that she makes at home and they made it for her without her even asking. Each evening they would bring her the next night's menu so she could choose what she wanted and tell them about any adjustments. They were always very accommodating.

    Shoved off right on time at 3:00 on the dot. The Captain took us for a harbor tour around the Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan.  The weather completely sucked but it was still a really nice trip.  I had heard that they did this from time-to-time, but had never been lucky enough to have it happen for us.

     
    Sorry....bad picture.  I’m no a Twangster.

    And depending on which ship you're on and/or current policy, they'll either leave a written note in your stateroom or a message on your stateroom phone every day to remind you that you need to settle up! Just ignore all of these seemingly dire warnings and pay on the last day like you plan to do. Our strategy is to go quite late on the last night, close to midnight-ish before we go to bed, because there is usually no longer a line by that time.

    I know what you are thinking.  January 2022?  Did I read that right?
    In order to secure a great price on one of only two Star Class Ultimate Panoramic Suites on Oasis I booked this a couple of months ago when the itineraries where first released.  Within minutes of them going public I secured the 2nd of these two suites in the name of research and, well it seemed like a good excuse to book a cruise.
    That's nice and all but why start a blog now?
    I am so tired of @Matt beating up on my fellow Canadian @Lovetocruise2002 even though we all knew he has the record for starting a cruise blog the longest before any sailing in the history of these boards that I had to step in and take action.   So back off Matt!
    Seven hundred and twenty nine days.  
    Itinerary as it stands today includes Puerto Plata, DR, St Thomas USVI and San Juan Puerto Rico.  
    This may be my only 2020 update.  I'll do my best to update this blog at least once in 2021.  
    Until then, let it be known I hold the record for the longest pre-cruise early blogging award!

    You actually don't need to print any of that out. I usually print the "Cruise Summary" and "Travel Summary" pages (in my e-docs those were pages 2 and 3) just because I like to have them. And I kept the whole document saved on a tablet that I took with me.
    What you do need is your "Set Sail Pass" and you get that by checking in online. It sounds as though you may not have done that yet. If you haven't, then you should go ahead and do it. Since you're only 3 weeks out it should be available and there should be a link in your account.
    During the check-in process you should be asked what type of account you want to set up (cash or credit card). All you have to do is tick the box for cash account and that's it.
    Hope this helps and you have a great cruise.
