Gold (2/7)



  1. Oh I LOVED reading through this! We were on the week prior in the suite next to you! We had Simona and felt the same way - how could she POSSIBLY have other families; she's always around for us! There was one night in CK when she was seating and chatting with a couple she had and Jolie (my 7yo) goes "Oh, there's Simona!" and proceeded to STAND UP AND WAVE HER ARMS and say really loudly, "SIMONA! OVER HERE!" it was mortifiying, lol. I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip - it wasn't our first cruise but it was our first Star Class and hoo boy there's no going back, haha.
  2. Oh dear! Well at least it'll keep you busy! That does sound hectic though!
  3. We're on her with you! lol the 20-27, yeah? So excited!
  4. Oooh does anyone know if Vintages on Anthem has apps/tapas?
  5. No not in particular but thank you! We were on her back in 2019 when I was pregnant with the 2yo! Haha. Just excited to read long and see pictures! Your family is so cute!
  6. Following along! My husband anI and our two kids (7 and 2) will be on Anthem in 30 days! This only feeds my excitement!
  7. So happyI found this! We have the same cabin on March 20th and the closer it gets, the less I can wait, haha. It will be our first star class experience too. That being said, I am thrilled to be following along here! Happy boarding day! It's a beautiful day in NY and you should have a lovely sailaway!
  8. Hello! Myself, my husband, and two kids (DD7, fully vaxxed, and DS2) will be on this cruise. It will be all of our second time on Anthem - we were on her previously when DD was 4 and I was pregnant with DS, lol. That was Feb 2019, a year before it all hit the fan. Staying on the ship for PC and Nassau, but looking forward to the new CCC! Last time we were there we got a clamsehell on South Beach and when we waded out far enough we would see palm trees being moved across the island as they were landscaping. It will be our first time in a RC suite - we are in a grand loft - and our first time getting a cabana (Chill Island) because I have declared that this is Mom's Vacation Too! Looking forward to doing all of the fun stuff and none of the "work" stuff.
  9. Following along! We're in 10324 on the March 20 sailing. As I said on FB, we have the same itinerary, but even moreso we ALSO plan to stay on the ship in PC and Nassau. This will be a repeat of a trip we took in 2019 when I was pregnant with our now-2yo. But this time, in a suite with the amenities, and an older big sister (4 back then, 7 now), it's all about the ship's activities (she brings up the missed bumper cars at least once a month) and CCC!
  10. I've just read through this whole blog in 3 days and I got misty-eyed at the end, lol! Thank you for taking the time. I'm pre-pre-pre-preparing for our first ever SC cruise on Oasis, 8/28/22. We'll be in the same cabin location and will have our two kids with us, Jolie (will be 8), and Julian, (will be 3 the day after we get off the ship). It's been helpful to see what it's like, what can and cannot be done, with unvaxxed kids, especially re the SC perks. Who knows, by next august maybe the older will be vaxxed. I also appreciated your notes and tips on SC in general. My husband and I don't like feeling like we're "putting someone out" so seeing you and others here say to be exact and ask for what you want, reach out the the genie, tell crew you're SC, etc etc, is comforting in that that's what makes SC work for both the passenger(s) and the genie. lastly, I really want to thank you for mentioning how you do dinner with the kids. Our first cruise with our daughter was when I was pregnant with our son. We got a balcony and didn't splurge too much bc we didn't know how she'd take to cruising. That being said, we ate dinner in the MDR a few nights and good lord it took forever - and Jolie is a Good Restaurant Kid, but when even she was getting antsy we knew we had to eschew that for the Windjammer. But we do prefer to eat in restaurants, so I'll definitely be taking a page out of you book there! So thanks again! This really has been a goldmine of information! I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for your November blog lol
