  1. Sounds PERFECT! ENJOY! Did hubs ever get the hang of you and this blog? My wife still gives the the "what the heck are doing on there so much" look and we're not even on a cruise now! I'm guessing that in the future when you think back, that may be the favorite sentence you ever said! Congrats and happy sailing.
  2. All the walls, doors and even the ceiling in the cabins are metal. The hooks can be used for robes, bags, coverups, swim suits, etc. These are the ones we got and they were great. Just know that the posted weights refer to when they are on the ceiling. They hold less when on the walls, but still work fine. Happy sailing! Also, there a great thread here about packing
  3. @kittysoul, I would think any refundable airfare will be a LOT more money than non-refundable. Hopefully you will get trip insurance anyway, so maybe it's worth checking the cost of the "cancel for any reason" clause and then booking the nonrefundable air.
  4. This is great...we are booked there in a couple of months (oops, no in May, got my dates mixed up). Are you going to La Bamba? @Lovetocruise2002 will never forgive us if we don't try it. It's her favorite restaurant there (maybe anywhere).
  5. Tell him we are the people that want to borrow him to ward off the chair hogs! Good job!
  6. Even with all the food around, I still miss that along with the midnight buffets!
  7. @IslandBoundMama, amazing blog, amazing vacation and most of all amazing family! Continued happy sailing and safe travels.
  8. OMG, Joe...every time I see "you" on the beach I say to myself, I would HATE that! When the kids were young we'd always go to a beach that had little walking from car to sand/water. Sorry for the minor hijack @DDaley . Can't wait to hear about your cruise!
  9. @raahc , NICE AVATAR PICTURE! 😁😁
  10. @ScottL, welcome to the forums! Just a suggestion. The county where I live provides us with veterans I.D. cards. It has our picture, name and address, branch of service, birth date, discharge date and county seal. The DD214 has so much other personal data that I'd either want to cross out or not carry with me. Plus thankfully, so many places now offer military discounts and it's so easy to just show this card.
  11. @raahc, There are members of this blog that can be (maybe are) professional photographers, but here is my 2 cents worth. I use a resizer app called Photo and Picture Resizer. The welcome picture above started as 4M. I then resized to the smallest choice which was 25% (although there is an option to put in your own size, pixels, etc). That brought it to 2M. I saved it and did it one more time which brought it to 49kb. That actually came out to 258 x 194. So try just resizing your original to those numbers. I probably made this way more complicated than need be. I'm sure someone else will chime in and provide some better help. Again, welcome to the forums! Tagging @JLMoran and @twangster
  12. Very sad. A story here, although no details. https://youtu.be/EMXziRoVxfM
  13. Nope--12 night ABC, Antigua, St Thomas, 6 sea days. Repo from FLL to Cape Liberty.
  14. I sailed Symphony in May and you went in July. I am on Adventure in May and you in July. What a copy cat you are!😁 Sabrina, I'd be lying if I said I didn't like Oasis class better. But this will be the third time sailing Adventure and still looking forward to it. We also like this ship better than Anthem (other than not having the 270). Each time on, the staff was fabulous....in 2018 they were so good, I wrote a letter to corporate in addition to the survey. If you are sailing with others (group cruise, extended family?) you will find enough to keep busy. If it's just you and hubby, you can celebrate anniversary #18. Plus you are such a positive minded sailor that I am sure you will enjoy yourself even though it's not Oasis class. @Fuzzywuzzy, was the staff on Adventure as good as I have come to expect? And welcome home!
  15. Well thank you m'lady. It is there. Looking forward to following your adventures.
  16. @hayley_bopp, I left a comment on you blog site. First it said awaiting moderation, then I got an email verifying subscription and now my comment is gone. I guess I'll just speak to you here. Have fun!
  17. I messaged them yesterday and was told the Key would appear 60-90 days before sailing. An hour later it was on my planner (250+ days out). It's listed at $31.99. I paid 19.99 for an Oasis Class 7 night last May. This is a 12 night on a Voyager class...no way we will pay more than 24.99 for it. It used to be that the facebook messenger group was very reliable. Lately it seems like they use stock answers whether or not it's applicable to your situation. Very unfortunate.

  19. Hope your sailaway goes as planned. Although certainly there are worse things than being stuck on a cruise ship that happens to be in port 😀

  21. As you saw, there is always a chance that any given excursion can sell out, be it Royal or third party. If you can see yourself clear to pay this far in advance, then I would lock in any of the ones you want from Royal. I say that because if the price does decrease you cancel and rebook at the lower price. But I would call to do that rather than doing it on line to make sure you don't lose your spot to someone else when you cancel. I would check with the third party companies to find out their policies regarding cancellations or price changes. Also, there are some companies that offer reservations with no payment or deposit needed. Happy sailing.
  22. Received (and replied). Thank you so much.
  23. @FionaMG, may I trouble you to please PM me the link also? Thanks!
