Well, actually we’ll fly on down, but you get the idea. Warnings/Disclaimers:  This blog is the sole opinions and thoughts of just the old guy who is writing it.  It doesn't reflect the thoughts,

Welcome to Dallas!  One step closer. By my standards in was an excellent flight - we had an equal number of take offs and landings.  I watched a “free” movie that AA had, Angel has Fallen.  Action fli

We are Home!  Suite 1740!

Hopefully you don’t possess my irrational hatred of Raisins. Nothing ruins a piece of Apple pie faster than those. 

Wow, maybe I AM a Star Class spoiled snob,  I share your hatred of the raisins - Araceli had them made without them😂😂. Thank you I need a no raisin email to Allan!

@Pookie, I’ll be sure and keep you posted on details.  We received his 1st email at about 33 days out. Since then we have traded several emails and he has been very prompt with reply’s. That’s a good sign,

Yes, same timing on the initial email for us.  We are pretty self sufficient and the two things out of the ordinary that I requested were pretzel m&ms (hubster)and Fresca (daughter).  The answer was there is a candy store on board and Royal only carries Coke products.  So it surprises me that other people are asking for unusual boozes, etc., and their requests are being granted.  Apparently there are a lot of variations between in Genies and ships.

Did you try telling them Fresca is made by the Coca Cola company?

I would never start a live blog as early as @Lovetocruise2002 does! She's out of control!

Many are way more out of control than me these days lol.

I'm calling BS.  I thought we already proved @Matt holds the premature blogging record...

Thank you my fellow bot friend. 😉

@Pookie I said earlier that I’m pretty laid back, and I really am.  If i asked for a Seafood Tower to be delivered to the Escape room while we were there and was told no i could roll with that answer.  But if I asked for a bag of M&M’s and was told to go the candy store...Me thinks I might not accept that answer.  I know that things differ from Genie to Genie and from ship to ship, but that’s an unacceptable response for your simple request. I’m hoping that changes for you!

I hope it changes too.  The hubster is not impressed so far.

We got the “no” today on M&M’s also.  Now I’m going to ask for the Seafood Tower in the Escape Room - to be delivered by one of the CATS.  In costume.  I don’t know how to insert a smiley face or I would!  Just seems bizarre that people request special bottles of booze and specialty lunches in the room on day 1 and that’s good but you cant get a bag of M&M’s!!  I’ll keep you posted @Pookie

Here is where we are at one week out:

Dinners:  In order it will be Coastal Kitchen to have a filet for @Lovetocruise2002, 150, Giovannis, Izumi Hibachi, Chops, 150, and Chops.  

Entertainment:  Allan sent us the schedule from this week and our week should be close to the same.  He also indicated that the schedule  was changed 3 times this week.  So at this point I’m not sure of that schedule each night.

Sail Away:  We requested some shrimp cocktails, chips and dip, etc which is not problem.

We have a reserved time on Thursday, I think, in the Escape Room.  I will do the bridge tour, alone, on the last day.  We have requested a backstage tour and Allan is looking into that.  Since Stacy and Kaitlyn are nurses they have also requested a tour of the medical facility.  No answer on that yet.  

And @Pookie, I did include in my last email that i was curious about the M&M thing since we had them the last two years.  The response was , “The M&M and other branded snacks were never included since the program started in May 2016.”  And there you have it.  

One week from tonight I will be posting from whatever hotel I’m booked into in Miami!!

About the candy that is not found on board...it is my understanding that is entirely dependent on the Genie.  I cannot confirm for sure, but I have a strong feeling that some Genies will venture out and some will not. 
 

And @Rags1, proud of you for not passing on CK’s filer night like some others 😉

I totally understand,  One only needs to read a few trip reviews to know the inconsistencies in the Star Class program. It’s going to be an awesome trip!  I’m just happy Jack Daniels is not a “branded candy!”  I’ll post pics of that filet...

Hope you stay at the Intercontinental and requested bay side.  I’m one of those weirdos that can’t sleep the night before and love watching the ships come in and witness the sunrise.  In fact, that’s why I’m awake now, checking out the port cam. 🤓

Raisins are disgusting. Waste of a perfectly good grape that could have been made into wine🤓

Wrong. Raisin is the fate of all grapes that don’t measure up for being made into wine. Every grape knows this and grows up fearing being told they are to be cast into the fields of dry fire.

Now, back to my Zinfandel...
