    He is definitely living the dream. I need to figure out how to "retire" to a job where I can work 4 to 5 hours a day while on a cruise ship pool deck.
    Great work on the interview @Matt

    Sunil did everything he could.  The genies were not allowed past a certain point in the terminal.  He was surprised to see that we arrived.  He told us that there is someone downstairs at the terminal that calls and lets the genies know when their guests arrive.  He told me they never told him, and he kept checking.  There was one person when you first entered the terminal that we were going to stop and ask who seemed like maybe she was the one who was possibly a contact point for suites and pinnacles.  It was directly after you enter the terminal and there was a large family who kept asking her questions and a family right beside her that was having a complete breakdown.  The wife was balling her eyes out and the husband kept telling her "I told you you needed that and you wouldn't listen.  The kids and I are just going to go without you."  I felt really bad for them, but I assume it probably had something to do with not reading all of the protocols.  This was distracting even for us (but to be fair I would be in tears if I found out I couldn't go on my cruise too), so maybe between this commotion we got missed by the genie's point of contact.  After another lady saw us waiting to talk to the lady who we thought may be the one we should talk to, the other lady came over and pretty much told us no, we need to go to testing.  I understand if they are trying to keep the kids separate who haven't tested in the terminal,, but why were we allowed to check-in with everyone else before receiving results?  It didn't quite make any sense.  After being shuffled around for awhile, I messaged Sunil on Whatsapp, and he immediately responded and even called trying to help where he could.  Unfortunately,  we had zero cellphone service in the terminal and did not notice that we had a missed message and two missed calls until we got to the end of the process and I was able to hook to wifi.  I do not blame Sunil at all.  Perhaps, we got unlucky or maybe the people at the terminal need more time to make it a smooth process.  If anyone else has any issues at check-in, I recommend reaching out to your genie and learn from our mistake and make sure you have cell reception for them to respond.

    Had a table next to us (group of 8ish) that wore the same shorts + muscle shirts all week in the main dining room. My 9yr daughter kept reminding us they were dressed wrong and of course had to say it loudly every night.

    Time for the photos of decorations. Figured since I had the laptop busted out and now connected to WiFi I'd be fancy and do some processing work with the photos.
    Heading back to the room it solidified the flamingo note was taken well.

    Rounding the hall to the living room area we were greeted some "Happy Birthday" decorations hanging from the ceiling.



    Closeup of the items that were placed on the table, no idea why the Michigan State cup was given as a gift.

    Moving the gifts away for a better view of our flamingo friend.

     
    Waiting on the bed was a cake made by our suite attendant.

    It was nice, but a bit dry.

    I would go to the casino more often if it wasn't for the smoke.  You can still smell it very much on the non-smoking side.  It often prevents me from gambling at all.

    Paywall-free link. We'll see if Democratic senators in Hawaii and Maryland (both state's governors have openly supported restarting cruising) give it support or if it'll be shot down purely due to political lines.

    Srp431 reacted to twangster in State of Florida Sues CDC Over Cruise Shut Down   
    To illustrate the impact of one ship leaving Florida and sailing from the Bahamas, Michael Bayley recently estimated just under 2,000 guests per weekend will be sailing from Nassau. That sounds about right for a ship at 50% capacity.
    CLIA has calculated the average cruise ship guest spends $385 in the home port before boarding a cruise.
    1,800 x $385 = $693,000 per weekend not being spent in Florida bars, restaurants, hotels, taxis, etc.
    That's one ship at reduced capacity.
    Multiple it by two for full capacity and multiple it by many more for all ships across all lines sailing from Florida on any given weekend.
    That should give you an idea of what's at stake for Florida.
    And that doesn't include any of the other spend by the cruise lines for supplies and such, or other related jobs the industry supports.

    Will get the vaccine and wearing masking inside is fine, but won't cruise if we have to wear masks outside on the pool deck or just walking around outside.
