  1. I made it in Adobe Illustrator! We're sailing another line in 19 days, this reminds me I gotta make a Christmas version.
  2. I designed/printed this one for our birthdays on Freedom this August and no one messed with it! I think the more custom the magnets are to you, the less someone else will want to steal it for their door. Much harder to say "oh IIIII bought this at the dollar store" about something that says a name or date on it.
  3. Oh good I am glad you asked, this was driving me crazy. They stop at April 2021 but shouldn't summer 2021 be included in this batch through 2022? I was thinking "oh maybe they don't go to the ABCs in summer."
  4. Oh no! I just checked and I am in port with Panorama... they wouldn't just leave you stranded on board, right? Are the Cabo tenders in addition to the ship's own?
  5. I love this thread! I was a lurker until I had a question I couldn't already find an answer to and never looked back. I am at 31 days til HAL (oops) to the Mexican Riviera 172 days till my first OA class, lovely amped Oasis and a whopping 439 days till Navigator with a double dip to Coco Cay where I will be going slide crazy! Having those two future RC cruises pleases me because I am finally back on watch-it-like-a-hawk cruise planner duty, HAL's Already Booked interface is trash! Hoping for Black Friday sales to book some drink packagessss!!! WOOooo
  6. We walked right on Freedom with a Cannabis vape in our carryon and no one seemed to notice or care. That was from San Juan, possibly they're just as lax down under? Yours isn't even illegal and you're of age! I doubt you'll be stopped.
  7. Add me to the list of people spending money after a Twangster live blog. The canal is now at the top of my future-cruise-scheduling list! Watching the locks looks so fun and interesting. Thank you!
  8. In Maui, I always sail on a Trilogy tour to Lanai. Fun catamaran ride for your boys, plus the benefit of seeing an additional Hawaiian island on your trip. Once the catamaran arrives in Lanai at a private marine park, you are switched to a bus for a historical tour through the main town and pineapple fields BUT you'd also have the option of just staying at the boat launch as there is a beach/park/picnic area there that the bus returns to for lunch before the sail back to Maui. They offer snorkeling, beach volleyball, etc at the beach park. The lunch was fantastic, too!
  9. On Cruise Mapper it just says Odyssey and Mariner on 11/29/20. Navigator will be there on the 28th. Where are you seeing 3 listed?
  10. Hah! It's already ruined me when it comes to the larger bathroom, I will not go back to the curtain-clinging shower stall! I am a little worried my Signature Suite on HAL will further distance me from the traditional balcony cabin sized shower as for some reason their SS category has TWO full size showers in the bathroom!
  11. NOoooo!! Did Hilton do you wrong or is your Marriott preference just by chance of having stayed there the most? I stumbled into Silver level membership a few years back by "accidentally" booking the Hilton Anaheim too many times to more-easily do Disney and have stayed loyal just because I skyrocketed to the top! haha But but we can still be friends because I, too, am a suite gal through and through. Living for the day I will get above JS status.
  12. I have booked 6+ excursions through them and all have been great! Got 2 more on the books to come. I tried booking an excursion through them for Cabo and was told after purchasing that we wouldn't be anchored in time to tender to the meeting spot. They check the cruise schedules and worked with me to find a similar excursion that would work with my exact sailing. Great customer service!
  13. I love The Langham Boston but usually stay at the Hilton Faneuil Hall because I am an ultra loyal Hilton Honors member. Love that free water on check in! I have also stayed a few times at The Verb and really enjoyed the rooms/50's kitsch but that's for Red Sox games and is out of the way. The other two are much closer to the cruise port.
  14. Wow! I have vacationed in Cabo twice since adulthood and stopped here on my last Mexican Riviera cruise and always took a taxi to get to a nice, wide sandy beach. How long of a walk was this from the tender pier? This is now on the top of my post-excursion list for my trip in December. Also, agreed on the beauty of Puerto Vallarta. I go yearly in April but seeing it from the water is amazing, how have I never gone sailing while there? Remedied for December, sunset sail now squeezed in on the schedule. Thanks!
  15. haha, of course! Thanks for your triple dip reconnaissance.
  16. Did you notice consistency in the side Mariner docked on? And did you or Nav get there first on this day? I have a port-facing JS on Nav and am hoping to face out like this instead of looking across at the other ship when in port when we double dip! Sadly it'll be a 2 ship day on both of our CocoCay stops.
  17. Wow!!! These are amazing! I'm so glad you got a show post-fog.
  18. I know this won't effect your already amazing van-beach plan but Magen's was definitely notttt busy at all the two times I have been. Plenty of chairs, super fast service. And with two ships in port! It really was lovely and calm if you ever make it back to St. Thomas.
  19. Your Coco Cay photos are amazing! (even the overexposed! haha) Thanks so much for the island reconnaissance. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Pearl Island as it's at the top of my Nassau excursion options list.
  20. Oh no! I had forgotten your Izumi report from last year and was looking forward to sushi and tonkotsu (although spicy sesame is my fave) on Oasis next May. For the price I am assuming I am better off sticking with my San Diego-based ramen and sushi hot spots. At least I'll get a free try of Solarium Bistro!
  21. Also love me a Hamilton reference. Raise a glass to freeeee-dom!
  22. It wasss me! I have literally hundreds of sunsets in my phone because I can never resist snapping them.
  23. I would only make the change if the overall price is cheaper than the DBP + Voom for 2 devices. You will not have a problem using two phones at the same time on the 2-device package.
  24. Hahaha, I'm sorry! Feel free to toss me from the parapets!
  25. Only THREE days till you go!! Definitely following. I hope your foot plays nicely and allows you to go for the iFly!
