What's the first thing you're going to do?


Recommended Posts

First I'm gonna cry because we are finally back on a cruise ship and on Oasis headed to Coco Cay which we have been trying to get to for well over a year. Then we are gonna go to our Central Park balcony and check out all the goodies I ordered for the start of our cruise. Its become tradition that I order a bunch of things for embarkation day, flowers for the wife and note to her and our son. Some sweets like chocolate covered strawberries which my wife and son love. And usually a few other things and then we will sit out on our balcony and take in Central park in all its glory as we have never sailed Oasis.

13 days away for me. We will be dropping our stuff into our cabin, then heading to Chops to finalize our 3 night dining reservations, then getting something to eat. After that, we will be getting a drink! Or maybe 2.

My favorite part of the first day is sail away, I plan to be on the helicopter pad!.

I've said this multiple times when discussing the pandemic because there are others who have really suffered but I've lost two years that I will never get back of cruising and going to Michigan football games with my son - we are both graduates continuing a long family tradition on both sides. Yeah, first world problems!

But this is a huge deal for me at my age. Losing two years of cruising, something similar to loosing chunks of heart and soul, to the shut down of life sucks when you know there aren't many years of that left.

We have a routine. The first thing we say when walking into the Grand Foyer is, "honey, I'm home." We go from there.

I liked the post that said, the first thing I'm going to do is ..... tip a crew member! Fantastic. I think I'll bring a stack of bills and each crew member I encounter is going to get one until I run one

When we cruised with Disney, I always had tears of joy when we boarded and they announced our name. Always. I didn't get that when we last cruised with Royal, BUT! I guarantee you those tears of joy will be there when we board Oasis on Dec 26th. After the tears, we will head to the Suites/Concierge lounge for snacks and adult bevs, shore up any loose ends with them, grab some lunch, and walk around. I cannot wait!
