    Bliss / Live / Solo - Dec-01-08-2018...

    It'll basically be the same thing, just not the "live action - play by play" version...

    Bliss / Live / Solo - Dec-01-08-2018...

    After a considerable amount of deliberation, I've decided not to "go Live" on the Breakaway in February... After fighting against horribly slow upload speeds on the Bliss, I have to believe the BA will be the same or probably worse. I just don't need that kind of stress while on vacation. I will, however be doing a "before & after" version, beginning with the usual pre-cruise shenanigans, this time in New Orleans!... This will be my first time sailing from there, and my first "real" visit to the city. Hotel and flights are booked, so stay tuned for a modified version of the usual review... Join me, beginning on or about February 5th 2019, when we get away on the Breakaway!...

    The T/A is a bit out of my price and getting off of work range, but I'd like to try one day...

    This sounds like something I would do... Only, I would be talking to myself, which I do sometimes anyway...

    Thank you very much for your complements... I just fly by the seat of the pants, and whatever happens is what I write...

    Just off Bliss

    I recently made a 10:00, but 9:00 would be really pushing it... I would strongly suggest not booking the 9:00 flight...

    Actually, all of my port photos were taken with my 3 1/2 year old Motorola Droid Turbo II, which they don't even make anymore, and is obsolete by today's standards... Everything else was on my Google Pixel II XL, which has a state of the art camera. Thanks again for following...
  8. Saint Greg, overall how was your experience going Live with the new website versus the app? I find that it eats up battery and the upload speed can be abysmal to nonexistent at times for photos, especially on the ships wifi...
  9. I kept getting this exact same message. Probably about 10 times. If I switched browsers it would let me continue to post. The admin from Cruise Critic chimed in and said it had nothing to do with their site...

    Alrighty, then... I was able, with my superior typing skills of over four words per minute, to compile the thank you list for the adventure that we all just endured... I can't express enough how much that you're input meant to me over the last week or so. My life is pretty much void of purpose without my travels, and sharing it with you fine people. I often went for years without even a single vacation, thinking that the cost involved were just not worth it. After the loss of my best friend nearly five years ago, I realized that there is a lot more to life than just being responsible, and paying bills and such. Through her passing, I found a reason to live, and do it without regard for debt and always worrying about the future. The future is now, and if you aren't doing things and having experiences that you will remember forever, then you're doing it wrong. You're memories are the only thing that no one can take away from you... I don't make nearly enough money to cruise 3 or 4 times a year like I have been, not by a long shot. But, in this world you never know how long you really have, so you better do the things you want to do while you're able. My travels are meant to bring meaning to my life when I thought it had no meaning. When they put me in the ground, I don't want my tombstone to read "Here lies Sid. He had lots of money and material things"... I want it to say "He may be broke, but he spent it all doing the things he loved..." Without further adieu... The thank you list for my wonderful adventure on the Bliss is as follows: Lupush, Noworkforme23, jkburns, adam3313, cruisestan2, mkcurran, marktwothousand, Diann24, mochwr, OceanBlueWaters, jbhcw, HeyJut, kpark895, Kealy, zencruisers, cincicruisers, blarko, skakeNbake, TravelGirlinDallas, Jme4166, candigirl41, whiterose79, bochest124, retiring soon, morety, trish4bruce, LuvCruSun, emm126, MzShae, ktmush2, JJAukland, SNJCruisers, SenatorsFan, itseaya, CazV, sandy85, Steff79, SAmome, Milly1966, ww3traveler, 50SumthnCruiser, HBCruiser, sexy50, Chesneygirl, kcruz, samiam0403, Tropicalgurl, NCLgetawaymenhoney, kackles, Hooked!, Saint Greg, MusterDrill55, HideoutII, 8373seth, CincyJen, meatball_nyc, Dayana, Hooked Already, david_sobe, LinnieRed, Beachiekeen, MsJersey84, ClevelandCrusin, Shidah, dcipjr, Just Jo, BigNance, ClaireAndMike, saintsfan777, perditax, ESCARGO, fuentecat, klarson1027, ev98, MrFunInTheSun, jpc763, All-ready2cruise, Jldevin, pbxtech, tanyaewa, rxlowry, JC5240, CRUISERMOMX3, mccallister, MrMike45, CelticMCO, pebbles1102, cml4958, Nittany Cruise, Cole Thornton, 2+2, purpleally, kenmyfam, itolduso, pinklucky61, need2cruisesoon, bina, DeanDeeDee, smokie36, Stlcardsfan79, edspec, and Yorkvillain......

    The charcoal bun is mostly just to give a unique color, no taste at all... Charcoal is extremely healthy for you too...

    I believe the Escape is still my favorite, though I would't hesitate to sail the Bliss again in a second... Pincho Tapas is still my favorite NCL dining venue, and only on the Escape...

    I've just gone back through the whole thread and recorded each and every one of you fine readers usernames, and as soon as I can type them out I will personally thank EACH and EVERY ONE OF YOU... It has become a tradition of my reviews, so if it ain't broke, ect... I'm at work right now, so it'll probably be tomorrow, so bear with me. I just like to show how much I appreciate all of your input. It's the only reason I do this......

    Thanks, Yorkvillain... I was hoping you would find your way over here. The Bliss is awesome. Don't let nappers in the OL stop you from enjoying this awesome vessel...
