Emerald (4/7)



  1. I had a severe case of this when I sailed from Vancouver to Hawaii. I think there were 5 or 6 sea days in a row, and some choppy seas the first couple of days. On my first port day I felt like I could barely walk on land! I called my brother who was a commercial fisherman, and asked for advice. He advised me to eat something salty, drink something cold like ginger ale, and sit down or lie down with my eyes closed for a few minutes until the feeling passed. I tried it and it did help. Each episode thereafter I did the eyes closed and lie down if possible, and each time got a bit better. Now before and on each day of sailing I take one Sudafed (little red pills) and it seems to help my inner ear. Good luck!
  2. When I lived in Germany I learned that Germans often try to get US dollars for tipping when they travel abroad because it is difficult for those outside the EU to cash in Euro coins and the smallest Euro bill is a fiver. Dollars really are king, in this case.
  3. I also tip a few dollars cash to anyone who brings my room service tray.
  4. We sailed on February 15 and it was 8 degrees Fahrenheit!
  5. Has anyone paid attention to how often the PUP opportunities come? I am 20 points away from achieving the next tier and 50 something days from my next cruise. I figured it would take me ages, but now I am close, thanks to 35 PUP points!
  6. For the first time ever, I will be sailing on Christmas Day. Have you ever done it, on Celebrity or another line? Good or bad experiences?
  7. Sailing on Summit for Christmas. I have sailed on her sisters, Infinity and Constellation. So happy to be heading back to sea! This will be my first time in Aqua class.
  8. In my humble opinion, life is too short to wrangle my own straws on vacation. I did find that if my paper straw gets yucky the bar staff are always willing to give me a new one.
  9. I just got off Anthem on Sunday. We were the first cruise after the delayed voyage due to the scare. I didn't see anyone in masks or in any way subdued because of the virus. A few people were seasick during high seas on day 7, but that is a different story. Go!
  10. We were just on Anthem. Reports are that the ship was at capacity but we never had more than one minute wait for MTD. (Four nights, two people. We dined elsewhere the other nights.)
  11. On our recent Anthem cruise we really enjoyed Solarium Bistro for dinner. It was calm and quiet. Buffet style salads, appetizers, sides and deserts. Cooked to order entrees. We tried the skirt steak, salmon and shrimp. All were delicious.
