  1. I also opted for the 200% for my cruise that was cancelled, and ended up booking a back to back, AND it ended up covering 2 of the "drink bonus" offers, where you get $100 extra credit with purchase. I also have OBC leftover after all of that!...
  2. No, the best I could do was the outside of the building from the street. The only way back to the courtyard is through a gate, also trespassing. I even asked a police officer what I could do to get a better view. He suggested renting a boat, and try to see it from the channel. If you Google "Dexter's apartment" you can see exactly where it is. I took the public bus most of the way, then walked from there...
  3. Thanks, DubNHub... Hopefully we'll all get to do it for real some time soon...
  4. Well, it looks like I've reached the end of that set of pictures. Afterwards, I went and stood at the bus stop and waited for the next airport express bus to arrive. It's truly the easiest, as well as cheapest way to see Miami Beach if you have a good aptitude for walking once you get there. I need to try and find the pictures of the other time I took the bus up to the Bay Harbor Islands to catch a glimpse of Dexter's apartment. I could only get photos of the outside, and not the actual balcony or courtyard. The residents there are tenacious about people trying to sneak in there to get a picture. I've considered trying to rent a jet ski or charter a small boat, just so I could get a picture of the actual apartment... The next set of photos on my phone are of my next cruise a few months later on the Norwegian Getaway. I may start another thread over on the NCL board, to try and keep busy. Since this cruise, I've pretty much switched back and forth between Carnival and Norwegian. I enjoy things about both lines, and I'm just as happy on either one. Hopefully my little rewind adventure brought a bit of memories back. I know it did for me... I just can't wait to get back on board anything at this point. Thanks to all of you for reading, and I'll try and continue tommorow with the Norwegian cruise. They're calling for a shut down here in Atlanta starting at noon today. Looks like another week of watching DVDs and day drinking.........
  5. I can't believe there aren't any food pictures. I specifically recall visiting a taco place... Anyhoo, I kept waking, even though my feet were beginning to hurt. I knew that I may never see this again, so I wanted to take it in as much as possible... I ran across a street called James Ave, so I had to take a picture of that. (It's my first name...)
  6. About this point, it was getting hot out. I had already walked several miles, up and down almost every street in the area. These old historic buildings are just so cool. I continued on...
  7. When we left off yesterday, we were smack dab in the middle of the art deco district of South Beach... The next thing I knew, I was standing right in front of the Versace mansion. I remember the day that the man hunt for Andrew Cunanan was all over the television, and now I was literally on the steps where it all went down... I paused for a minute, and then it was time to keep moving.
  8. Until tomorrow... I promise to continue, starting with South Beach...
  9. The way see it, there's no downside to this...
  10. Just a little intermission before the continuation tommorow...
  11. Read at your own risk... This thing is almost 500 pages long now...
  12. My cruising experience only goes back to 2010, but I vividly remember the first time I stepped on board. It was the Carnival Fascination out of Jacksonville, heading to Key West and Nassau. When I first boarded, I remember thinking "wow, this thing is huge" and of course, I had no earthly idea where anything was, much less my cabin. Eventually, I did learn to navigate myself wherever I needed to be, and by the end of the second day, I was hooked. Day drinking out by the pool. Eating whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted to. Visiting new, and far away places (for me, at the time) It was 4 years later that I took my next cruise, and my first "solo"... Since then, I've cruised 20 times on 2 different lines, and I can't ever imagine not wanting to continue. Now, here we are, in the middle of all this corona virus thing, and nobody has any idea when we'll be able to do it again. I currently have 3 more booked for later this year, and I pray that everything goes well between now and then, so I can get back to my happy place.........
