  1. Congrats!! And, thanks for the wonderful post of your vacation.... the pictures were wonderful. :)
  2. Nachos... are always RIGHTEOUS in my book. Lobster too. Can't wait for the final pictures. Way to go!!
  3. Very interesting blog... and, so many fantastic pictures! Thank you.
  4. Glad that you're feeling better! Look forward to the pictures. :)
  5. Hello all. Although I'm still a ways off from booking my first cruise... I (continue) to enjoy these message boards & you very kind folks. Here is a quick question regarding the beverage packages... This is assuming the following parameters: ---> Sail out of Miami, and return to Miami ---> 7-night cruise to the Caribbean ---> Aboard an OASIS "class" ship Let's assume it is the DELUXE DRINK PACKAGE. The one that is $63 - $70 per day. And, please let me know if my question is too wordy (or sounds strange, lol). From what I read, a cruise out of this port will leave at 2:00pm usually. From what I read, disembarkation must be done by 10:am usually. OKAY, so a cruise such as "this" will be EIGHT chargeable days for the drink package. Correct? Or, am I way off? I ask this, please, to get your feedback... if it is "so", then there are (basically) limited hours that you're physically aboard the ship to do the booze drinking on Day 1 and Day 8. ..... Also, can a person buy the drink package for less than eight days. I'm guessing no, but just wondering. THANK YOU! Matthew in LV/NV.
  6. Interesting topic. Now, what about garlic fries? I just HAVE to ask!
  7. ::: Following your LIVE BLOG!! :::: It sounds like you're off to a pretty good start. Way to go! By the way, great idea for bringing an extra (empty) suitcase. Love the last photo of the ocean from the Balcony! I'm sure it feels warmer than 12 degrees in Minn., lol.
  8. 8 pages!? Bahahaha! I am guessing the pages were two-sided as well.
  9. If you did not book a specialty restaurant (in advance), can you on a whim go by and kindly ask "Is there a table available?". An example... Giovanni's? Chop's? Or, is that just not done?
  10. I really enjoyed reading your trip report. Wonderful! O-m-gosh... truffle grilled cheese. I'm soooo there! :)
  11. On the Oasis Class ships... I would like to inquire: For the "free" dining spots available to cruisers, what is your experience with them being popular/crowded? As I ask this, I'm wanting to know are there certain ones that LONG LINES? DIFFICULT TO FIND A SEAT? Was there a situation (or several situations) on your cruise in which you wanted to eat at a place, but just gave up? Thank you for the feedback.
  12. How would I feel about it. Will LET ME TELL YOU how I would feel. I would offer an abundance of encouragement. You have paid a lot of dough for the cruise. If you wanted to spend 9 hours each day at the pool, then do so. If you want multiple plates of a certain dish, or a wide variety of different entrees... you should certainly go for it. A vacation is a time to indulge & overindulge. I tip my hat to you. In fact, if your table at the MDR has an extra seat -- may I have it? General Lee Speaking .. I mean, generally speaking, I will often skip lunch. So, having more than "usual" makes sense to me at supper time. Listen, if you use a napkin, you're okay in my book.
  13. REALLY great video. At 5:27 ... I saw that risotto dish. Looks very good!
  14. Twangster... I finally got around (although, I am still new here ... by just 30 days) to reading the trip report. Wow. It was amazing. The time you put in for the photographs is beyond anything a person could ever ask for. Awesome. I especially like the pictures of the trees with the eagles in them. I found them! Thank you again.
  15. Myself... if I'm drinking... It's often going to be a blended drink (or something mixed, etc). Personally, I like a drink for the FLAVOR of mixed fruit juices. Not so much for the REASON of becoming drunk. If I have one (or two) ... I'm fine. If I have a third, I start to feel a bit of a buzz. Just depends on how fast they're being served. And, how much booze is in there. If I have a 4th/5th... then I know I'm basically on the border of becoming vulnerable. It's a valid point. Being able to walk, being able to hold (and, remembering to hold) the railing of a stairwell. Remembering what my room number is. Bumping into people. Etc. The slurred speech. I guess we've all been there. Okay, i'll be quiet.
  16. I'm certainly no expert... but, it is a good question. I think a revealing "sign" would be when the person is becoming AN EXPERT on any/all subjects. Their voice is getting louder and louder. Or, maybe, he (or she) has decided that any person within nine feet "deserves" a hug. And, they're hell bent on furnishing "that hug". (smiling here) Anyhow... I have to agree with Mr. Candyman... using a level of discretion is probably helpful. Like I said, it's not my place to choose what action they "should take". But, how about these suggestions: ----> Staff offering them a water. Staff suggesting "It's a long cruise, we all want to pace ourselves my friend". ----> Uniformed security staff stepping in. Sorry, like I said... not my place to "say". But, just my two cents.
  17. Skid.. hello there! Thank you very much for the ideas. :) Appreciate it. I can see where an OCEAN balcony would be amazing.
  18. I have to say, that sounds pretty fantastic. I'm a fan of hash browns. And, baked potatoes. Oh, and French fries. Garlic fries too. Mashed is very acceptable in my book as well. Ahhh. :) I've seen on some rooms (cabins?) (suites?) etc... have a larger balcony -- sq. footage I mean. It looks like all of them have at least a single chair and a table, too?
  19. Okay... I will have a look at it. Thank you!!
