    Ampurp85 got a reaction from morganpink2001 in Feedback Requested (not ranting) About Ordering 2 Entrees   
    I had done this on my Grandeur Jan 22-27th sailing.  It was a five night so cannot attest to the lobster. The first night I ordered two apps and one entree. They brought out one app then the other after I finished, then my entree. The portions were small so the second night I ordered one app and two entrees. They brought the first entree and then when I was close to done, they brought the other. The third night was Mexican night and I wanted to try a couple of apps and two entrees; apps all separate. But my waiter asked if I wanted the entrees together, so she brought them out within five minutes of each other. Since she was my dedicated server, she would bring my apps still separate but entrees together for remainder of the cruise. They do this to ensure the food is still hot, but you can ask for all of it to be brought together.

    I did a B2B on Navigator this past September, never smelled any sewage but Schooner being right by the casino was a big problem. People would literally stand right there to smoke. I liked the DL though, I would go and read when everything was too congested, the DL concierge was so friendly.

    Something I forgot to post about this cruise.
    There was the sweetest owl aboard.  I think one of the Chops servers said that it had been on board for at least 1 cruise prior to this one (maybe more...who knows) but it was the cutest thing EVER.  It was just a tiny puff ball with huge eyes.  We saw it one night when we were in Chops...it hopped by our window and I had to do a double-take to make sure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing.  It just turned its head and stared at us with those big eyes....just simply adorable.  Never saw it again...just that one night.  What a bit of luck to be able to see something so adorable.

    There is a section for suites, might not be the best section. If shows require reservations you scan your seapass. They most likely will have reservations for Mamma Mia, Aqua aria, ice show and late night comedy.

    Welcome to the boards!
    Having no Playmakers is the worst, but OceanAria is the best. But considering you are new to RC, the best and worst from seasoned cruisers won't really matter as you should go into the experience with the most open mind. Something that is the best/worst for someone else might be the opposite for you. I would suggest looking at Matt's blog and post about the Allure.

    Ampurp85 got a reaction from RCIfan1912 in Freedom vs Liberty vs Indy - which would you choose?   
    Freedom would be my bet, but Indy is also good. I found that Freedom feels a bit newer, and they have a really good ice show, plus a Playamakers.

    Tonight was the parade of nations with all of the staff carrying their nation's flags. It was really fun. Lot of national pride out on the Dancefloor! 
     
    today passed by in a blur. At one point the seas got quite rough outside but the ship wasn't bouncing too badly. There was a lot of pushing to shop and use the casino because they had to close those around seven, once we entered Chesapeake Bay. There was a comedian this evening, they had captains corner today, lots of live music both in the day and in the evening, and then they had a flash mob this evening for about five minutes. They've been practicing that Flashmob all week and it was cute. then came the parade of nations which was really nice, followed by a big dance party.
     
    My puzzle buddy and I were at the table a couple of times today, but the puzzle table seemed to be newly discovered by families today. Lots of families with kids crowding around wanting to work on the puzzle so my puzzle buddy and I left the table whenever that happened so everybody could get a chair and get a turn.  Café latitudes had a long line all day long and naturally, I got one last scoop of Ben & Jerry's.
     
    The ceremony honoring the veterans this morning was really nice and they had a very big cake afterwards which was beautiful. I'll include a photo below.
     
    I've come to bed relatively early so I can finish my book and donate it to the little library next to the puzzle table. I've got the TV on and of course it's playing the "wash your hands" song. 
     
    I'm self assist in the morning so I'll be barreling out of here and grabbing a cab for the airport.
     
    all in all it's been a good trip and a nice break, which is really all I wanted. And every time I cruise solo, I figure out things that I like, things I don't like, things I want to do differently next time, things that I look forward to each cruise. It's certainly a different experience each time. I mean this time I tried gambling! And had those massages, which I haven't had in years. and with this cruise, I've sailed all of the classes of ships that royal Caribbean offers, so now I have a great frame of reference when planning.
     
    Thank you so much to everybody that followed along and commented… It's been really fun sharing my photos and adventures with you. Safe travels!

    Thanks for posting your experience. On Saturday we'll be heading out on our FIRST since the shutdown as we are unvaxed also. To say we're  excited is an understatement.  I was curious (but not worried) about what to expect so your comments came at a perfect time!

    Many of us older than you have been in that exact same crossroads in our careers and/or lives. You'll figure it out, but just don't rush to figure it out.  And whatever you decide for the 2nd half of your career, do it because you want to do it, not because you feel you have to do it because you see others around you making their own life decisions.
