  1. FOMO got the best of us! I could hardly stand the thought of all of you having the exclusive BRAGGING RIGHTS of being on the first Caribbean Sailing in a year! So we are now Booked, Paid in Full, and airfare is ticketed - for this sail date. For the first time ever, we will be arriving "day of embarkation" which makes for a little anxiety, but the excitement factor is currently prevailing! #getmeonboard

  2.  

    So looking at this cruise compass from Jan 2016, these are the MDR nights:

     

    Night 1 (Sept 4)- Mojo

    Night 2 (Sept 5)- Saffron (formal night)

    Night 3 (Sept 6)- Pimiento 

    Night 4 (Sept 7)- Basil

    Night 5 (Sept 8)- Jasmine (formal night)

    Night 6 (Sept 9)- Pomodoro

    Night 7 (Sept 10)- Shitake 

     

    I'm ok with doing Chef's Table on any day except 1 and 7.  Night 3 is out because of Italian night.

     

    So if anybody wants to do Chef's Table on night 2, 4, 5, or 6 let me know!  

     

    Tammy and I would be interested in joining the Chef's Table Group ... pretty much any night - but indeed Italian in the MDR is one of our favs too.  By the way, I wouldn't assume the Menus will be the same order as previous embarkations.

  3. Wow! I'm sorry to learn of the mishaps. Hopefully things will continue to improve. Nice to hear you won the $300 OBC offer - that's great!  Kind of concerned since we will be boarding on Friday in Seward.  

     

    I know what you mean about things listed in the Compass (i.e. drink mixology, sampling, etc.) I've attempted to go to a couple of those and the "mixology" sessions never seem to materialize. When you ask, there is always a lot of puzzled looks -- like "the cruise compass says what?" And I hate when I've planned my activities only to have them not be accurate.

  5. I live in NOVA and Baltimore is my closest port. We've enjoyed cruising on Lady G many times, but I would infidelity support more alternatives for cruising out of Baltimore. I especially like the idea of a Radiance Class sailing from Baltimore!

     

    But I agree with whats been said ... mainly the lack of available destinations for a 7-day cruise itinerary limits options. While many would  not mind simply going out to sea, that plan probably would likely not fill ships consistently.   

  6. I'd vote for one forum with a number of threads.  And ideally each would be entitled with the ship name and sailing date, that way if I was interested in a specific sailing it would be easier to find...

     

    I agree with the others: Each planned Periscope Broadcast should be posted as a single thread with a Title Format of "Ship Name - Sail Date" or similar (but standardized).  I recently added my next planned scope under the existing thread, "periscope peeps" . One concern is that readers have to sort through and read all posts in the thread to find the various planned scopes.  [btw, follow me on periscope @Rich_Triplett to watch my upcoming sailings]

  7. Found this post today from a passenger just getting off Radiance:

    Just off Radiance.  She will dry dock at Portland after her repo from Sydney to Vancouver.   Standard 5 year maintenance checks plus renewing carpets, furniture, pool clean etc.   no mention of upgrades, not to say they wont.

    Would be good if shower doors were fitted.  No probs with JS as shower is over bath.

     

    Next cruise sales office has already been moved from deck 12 to deck 5 next to Cafe Lattitudes.  Nice and bright but takes up some seating space and very noisy being close to Centrum activities.

  8. Arrival and parking are a little different in Baltimore.  Once you enter the port facility, they will direct you to drive to a luggage drop off station (be sure to have your pre-printed luggage tags or else they will direct you to an intermediate station to fill out tags), then you drive to the next station to pay for parking, then they direct you to wherever they are parking for your sailing (usually next to or in front of the terminal).  You can not enter the terminal without setsail pass - so really you will have to meet your party in the parking lot or outside the main entrance.  It's all actually very easy ... it's not a huge port.
