Yen reserved seats in the front row of the upper section on the main level. We made good use of the snack shelf today.

Loving all the pictures. While the "Snack Shelf" certainly seems to be appropriately used here, does the divider end up distracting from your view, or is it just the angle that this particular picture happens to be taken at?

Day 4 - Dinner at Izumi We totally overdid it. I keep thinking of that South Park episode when Cartman sings, “I’m a little piggie, here’s my snout. Oink, oink, oink. Oink, oink, oink.” I AM that

Stopped at the Patisserie this AM for coffee and a raisin cinnamon roll. Which was huge BTW. The fellow behind the counter reminded us that we could have our genie pick-up things for us. To which, I r

Day 10 Continues 

We saw the 230PM showing of We Will Rock You today. It was pretty crowded because all of the other showings start in the early evening and conflict with those eating early (5:30PM) dinner. They were admitting only people with reservations.

Bummer....We are on Anthem next month.  We booked one of the 6:30pm times, but as you say, it conflicts with early dining so am not thrilled with the time.  But my plan is to for DD and I to skip dinner in the MDR so we can try and get good seats, but then also try stand by for the 2:30pm showing the next day.  Sounds like we may not get in.  Will still try, but good to know that it may not work.

The glass divider hasn’t been a problem. Even our 8 yr old son is not bothered by it, so it’s not really an issue of height or lack thereof.

Day 11 Continues 

The bridge tour at 230PM was affected by dense fog. As such, the crew on the bridge were focused on navigation and not able to answer questions. We were permitted to enter the bridge and take photos, but couldn’t interrupt them. Seemed fair to me.

Forgive me for hijacking the end of your live blog, but b/c I am NOT doing a live blog, I will take this opportunity to elbow in on yours !!

We are on Anthem tomorrow and we received the following text/email:

There's no way we would be there before 11:30 anyway since we are flying in tomorrow, but I just wanted to show that they are not JUST concerned about Asian sailings.

Back to you....have a wonderful last night and safe trip home !!!  Thank you for the wonderful blog.  Please tell Yen we will see her tomorrow...even though she won't be our Genie.

A few observations:

Does anyone really truly understand how this thing works? It controls the big balcony  curtains in the suite, but really I just found myself randomly mashing the buttons until the curtains opened/closed. There is quite a sense of accomplishment when it actually works. Maybe I’m just an idiot. 🤪

Our suite is stocked with 15 - yes 15 - boxes of tissues. I counted them this morning out of sick curiosity. They must think that folks who stay in this suite have horrible runny noses or some such. 

We also have 27 washcloths in our suite. So maybe we are smelly, too?

Here is the finalized laundry tag collection that I have accumulated. I feel like I’m missing some, but I had fun stashing them  away in a drawer.

And here is our final towel zoo. The lights make it a little difficult to get a good photo without shadows, but you get the idea.

Anthem was on my local news this morning. 12 passengers quarantined. I'm sure they'll clean the s*** out of that ship!

We’ve seriously been bitten by the SC bug. Looking at cruises in October 2020 on Oasis out of Port Liberty. I have my eye on a 2BR ATS. The balcony looks amazing! Anyone on here been in that suite before? Is it as amazing as it looks? It has to be, right? 🤩

We’re in one on Oasis this coming November.

Just arrived JFK and saw boarding delayed until tomorrow. We’re ok with that.  Booked 1 night at the Newark Courtyard. So we ended up flying in 1 day early after all !  Lets hope they cancel Nassau and not Coco Cay !

I’m hoping for a similar fate for our Oasis sailing in April, right now it’s only stop is Nassau, selfishly hoping for skipping that port and heading to CocoCay

No such luck for us.  They just shortened the stop at Port Canaveral which was, unfortunately, the only stop where we had something planned.  Ugh.  So I am just going to cancel my car rental for CC and we’ll just stay on the ship. We’ll be in Nassau 7 AM - 11 PM.  OMG, really ?
