  1. Oh nooo! This will be my same Fly Home day after Freedom in a week. Best not to think of that yet! hahah Have such an awesome time!
  2. Hah! Oh good! I was planning on reserving that little number for port-only appearances but good to know it'll be okay on the pool deck as well.
  3. Loving all the pictures!! I am suddenly remembering tiny details about the Pieta and the Sistine ceiling from my years of memorizing art history test note cards. Brunelleschi's dome was buttress-free which was unheard of! haha Also, you have so many great summer dresses!
  4. I had clicked through to see the PDF versions Matt posted on the blog and was impressed with the full bleed/color design! I see it's not that way in practice though. B/W even for a Sky Class guest?! Cheapskates.
  5. I'm thinking maybe yours is that way since it was already custom! I don't see this option under Basic Info for regular-ol' users.
  6. 19 days for me, too! Soo close to single digits.
  7. Is this available nightly? Or just on a specific Asian food themed night?
  8. Wow! Did you need a special remote to access the different input for mirroring the computer? Or did the TV have a source button?
  9. I flew Delta to Detroit for a wedding two Fridays ago and thought of you from your many DTW-origin live blogs!
  10. I'm finally at 25! When it hits 10 I will have constant it's-nearly-vacation stomach butterflies!!
  11. I am the same way! All that alone time growing up taught me to keep myself easily entertained, I guess. Traveling solo is so nice, I am looking into trying my first solo cruise next spring!
  12. Snagged a 30% off JS for my first adult cruise next month but it's only on Freedom! I am realizing I gotta get onto a bigger ship to try this illusive CK. I worry that once I work my way up to Sky and Star Class there will be no thoughts of sailing in a skinny mini cabin ever again. The Mint full recline beds on Jet Blue certainly ruined regular first class, let alone coach!
  13. I have read somewhere on these boards that people have had success asking the cabin attendant for a remote that will change the input but I have not yet tried this myself!
  14. Can't wait to follow along. You guys are suite-loving-husband-and-wife goals! Happy Anniversary!
  15. I swear by these Loksak underwater bags. They're certified water tight to 60m. I use one bag for my iPhone and another smaller one for passport/room key/money etc, put them both into the splashsak waist bag and bring everything into the ocean with me. They work fantastically, I have had the same set for 8 years and might just now have to replace one (only due to cloudy plastic, not from any leaks).
  16. Please show us a pic!! I love to see design differences when packaging changes over the years.
  17. I have never cruised solo but I have been on several big 5-6 night trips by myself and had the best time! Everyone is shocked and wants to be your friend when you're traveling alone... I bet even more so in a cruise environment. Hope you get to do it!
  18. Wow! What an awesome tool! Looks like I am easily set to break even if I don't perish from dehydration. How early do bars open on port days? Can you sneak in any breakfast cocktails before departing the ship?
  19. oh wow, and that's the port I most want to see as well. I hope you guys are able to find a beautiful patio and just sit and soak it in! Even just sitting and looking should be spectacular.. pack so much water! Ooh, now you got me thinking about packing my camelpak for the Caribbean as well, then you're not carrying as many bottles.
  20. Oh good!! The thought of planning a land vacation to all those Greek/Italian stops is so daunting, cruising seems perfect.
  21. I was worried about this for a 9-night Explorer sailing out of Civitavecchia for next August! Now that it'll be amped by then maybe there'll be TOO much to do!? Also I hope the Europeans don't judge us for the water slides! Big garish number comes sailing into Santorini marring the pristine coastline, haha
  22. I wonder if all Freedom cruises out of San Juan to the Southern Caribbean on this itinerary got changed or if we're on the same sailing? Freedom August 18th! I have MTD scheduled for 7:30 that night and I can't decide if I should push it back or forward! More Barbados time or done with dinner in time for sail away?
  23. YES! My friends and coworkers always make fun of me at pool parties for simultaneously having a cocktail tumbler and a water bottle with me constantly! Also I find that when I mix myself a vodka/vitamin water cocktail, an inch of so of water at the top never hurts. Cruise plan is a lot of vodka-water-splash-o-juices and just one or two sugar monstrosities a day.. those mudslides will GETCHA
  24. Awesome, this is exactly the info I was looking for!
  25. I booked my first excursion through RC (all previously through Shore Excursioneer) and I am wondering when you find out about all the details. My 4 Shore Excursioneer purchases were followed up with detailed PDFs outlining when/where to meet after the ship docks. Will RC provide this info prior to departure? Or maybe just in your stateroom once on board? Sounds like a hassle for the attendant/easy way to put the wrong info in cabins since it's not the same for every guest. As of right now I only have a confirmation that lists the price with no additional info and I can see it in my cruise
