  1. Why, yes, I did zoom in on the full shot to Where's-Waldo the shorts dog. He was having a well deserved rest from all that crowd pleasing!
  2. Grease has that huge unwed teen pregnancy theme, aside from the main character changing herself into a scantily-clad POA to land a man. You'd think that would be just as offensive to these "family-minded" people as husband killers. 😂 Let's get some Sondheim up in here, RCCL!
  3. We took an RC excursion that circumnavigated the island and stopped at a beach on the east side for lunch and snorkeling, it was great! I think the excursion was called Antigua by Sea. We picked up additional passengers in Dickenson Bay and it was just gorgeous. A taxi straight there from the port runs around $15.
  4. I am just off HAL Oosterdam and they only gave out Open Water brand aluminum can "bottled" water with the drink package. I really liked that because on Freedom this summer I felt terrible about the number of plastic bottles we went through (I had my reusable Hydroflask for in-cabin water but forgot to bring it out around the ship with me). I guess it's not yet fleet-wide if NCL is claiming they're first.
  5. I use cruisemapper.com although I am sure there are other ways. https://www.cruisemapper.com/ports/coco-cay-port-392 Then find the Schedule tab and change the month to the date of your sailing.
  6. This doesn't pertain specifically to long trips but something that I am always forgetting and wishing I had remembered to pack is a pair of binoculars! On the ship, mid-Atlantic, they won't be of use but once you get where you're going I almost always see something in the distance from my hotel window I wish I could see a little closer. Another thought I had was to make sure you have an outing backpack that is smaller than your carry on for schleppin' a small umbrella and packable rain coats with you wherever you venture out to. When I last travelled through Ireland the rain was always hitting at strange times and I was happy to be geared up (that was July, not August, but I assume the wet weather will be similar).
  7. Another thank you for the great blog, @WAAAYTOOO! Your writing style is so, so funny.
  8. I saw this Cats history this morning and it made me think of your hilarious blog! I think we can all consider ourselves lucky that RC presents a shortened version as I have left at intermission of the full length production before. (see also: Show Boat, woof!)
  9. I ordered it everywhere I went! Definitely available poolside.
  10. I have used this brand for years! Even my olllld ones don't leak although I usually buy fresh ones every few years as the plastic starts to get cloudy. Loksak Waterproof Airtight Resealable Bags For into-the-ocean portability I put it in one of these waist bags.
  11. I love Painkillers! It's like a piña colada on the rocks with nutmeg. But usually I order vodka + water + a splash of fruit juice (pineapple, guava, etc) because the water helps prevent hangovers from all that sugar.
  12. Wow! I barely noticed the Spanish announcements when we sailed in August. Are people really stopping what they're doing to listen, realize oh this is the "yucky Spanish part" of the announcement, and then becoming upset about having to listen to it? Just continue about your day! I highly doubt the Spanish-speaking-only Puerto Ricans on board are upset about first sitting through the long English portions. The only rude people I encountered on board were accompanied, yet undisciplined children cartwheeling several times through our mini golf game. 😑 @NJCruisers Great review! I am hoping to do the ABC route (we did the Barbados one) in 2021if the SJ port allows.
  13. Every time you've mentioned blending in I think of that line of Marisa Tomei's from My Cousin Vinny "Oh, yeah, you blend." hahaha
  14. As someone who spends a tonnn of time on the balcony I would be so sad with this cabin placement for a GS. Hello sir! Please enjoy me sitting out here in my bathing suit for hours each day. hahaha Hope you guys have a great cruise (followed by another)! Your picture inclusion is going great so far!!
  15. I made it in Adobe Illustrator! We're sailing another line in 19 days, this reminds me I gotta make a Christmas version.
