  1. Heather and I were talking about this cruise the other day. I couldn't believe it, but, she FORGOT that we were star class, let alone neighbors for this one!
  2. I fully blame you and @WAAAYTOOO and all of your blogs for the fact that my next three cruises are all star class! Of course however, I say blame, and Heather says thanks!
  3. Hey @Lovetocruise2002, take 2 for a birthday/inaugural cruise?
  4. Check out my Liberty Live blog. We were in the two bedroom grand suite. The balcony is the same size for all of the 2br suites so the deck doesn't matter. One thing to consider, is that the decks step back as you go higher up, so the deck above you can see down onto your balcony. This wasn't an issue for us, because everyone was friendly, we had nice talks with those passengers and I wasn't doing any "no tan lines" sunbathing?
  5. I think they must have hired this guy to do all the stone work. All joking aside, having all these small issues is frustrating and I hope they get corrected quickly for you. Its a big project and needs to be done correctly!
  6. This is correct. I've added someone months after an initial booking, and they are paying the same rate as the original passengers.
  7. Cafe Promenade on Anthem serves Starbucks coffee, and is included in the beverage package, so you can get your latte fix there with no problem.
  8. Heather is a huge Hallmark fan as well, and she watches those Christmas Movies ALL......THE.......TIME..........Maybe I should send you my login info for my cable subscription and you can stream them all to your hearts content. (If there are any Spectrum cable executives on these blogs, please ignore that last comment. Sharing of login info never happens)
  9. We used the autotrain a few years back, and it was great! We got one of the family bedrooms as well. Be warned, those rooms sit right above the trucks (wheel assemblies) and are pretty noisy and the beds are snug. My kids had a blast, my back, not so much.
  10. Glad you are doing well! The procedure you had is still a big procedure, so its great that your pain is under control!
  11. Hey, I did the same thing!! Interestingly I traded in my fusion and got an explorer. Like @rjac said, I only got my junk out of the car. Mine was a 2010, pretty rusty courtesy of our salt filled winters, and had been in an accident. I knew mine was headed straight to auction and probably scrap, no need to detail it for that!! Good luck with the further procedures!
  12. Also, if you read my Liberty blog, I discuss Air2Sea quite a bit since we used that for last February. The flights were changed after they were booked, so we lost our seat assignments, so pay attention there, and watch your reservations if you keep them because you will have to talk to the respective airlines yourself after they are paid for if there are issues that come up. I tried speaking to the air2sea reps first and they sent me on to the airlines directly.
  13. Cancelling is very easy, I had done some searching on Air2Sea for a previous cruise to see how it all worked, not realizing that you paid for the flights with final payment of the cruise, I inadvertently booked flights. A three minute phone call later, they were all cancelled. It was super easy.
  14. Welcome to the blogs Most likely you are probably just too far out to book things. I have a cruise booked for July 22 and nothing is available in the cruise planner yet. Keep looking and eventually things will show up, probably sooner than later.
  15. Late Tuesday night the 7 might Caribbean itineraries were released into '23. Many of us who book star class got our rooms got booked, and there is lots of talk about how high the prices have gone on those rooms, as well as other categories as well.
  16. Hoping for some price drops in the future. OA 23 stops at Labadee and Coco Cay, need to do some cabana comparisons.
  17. The 4 tiered system didn't go fully into place until November 21, 2020. Prior to that there was a three level system, and based on their numbers, I bet they were a 3. The article states that Curacao and Antigua were added to the level 4 tier march 1st based on the increase in cases. I don't think its a slap in the face, its just a result of the small, but increasing number of cases there currently that crossed that level 4 threshold, and when you are talking only 100 cases over a 28 day period, that can potentially be quickly met.
  18. Based on the CDC page and what you listed the population of Curacao (156000) they determine the level designation based on the total number of cases in a 28 day period. you mentioned that they reported 5 cases on the 2nd. To have a level 4 designation, there needs to be a total of over 100 cases during a 28 day period. doing some guestimation of assuming 5 cases a day, you will cross that 100 case threshold, and earn the level 4. Justified or not, I'm not important enough to say. Edit: I was also able to find on the WHO site, data reported by Curacao shows they are at 139 cases in the past 4 weeks. https://covid19.who.int/region/amro/country/cw
  19. Doing a happy dance right now. Got a new friend (thanks @Lovetocruise2002), and a room held!
  20. This conversation went through my head Me: Chief, I can’t come to work tomorrow. Chief: Why are you sick? Me: Nope, but RC may release their next itineraries tomorrow, and I can’t miss it! Chief:Um………..
