  1. Oh yeah! It’s not “formal night” anymore...now it’s “wear your best”..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Time for our first formal night! Once Nate’s clothes showed up he did a quick change and we were ready to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. The following day was our first sea day....we slept until 11! I woke up to the room pitch black and went to look at the phone thinking it must be around 7 and I was shocked. I woke Nate up and we got to WJ during changeover so only had a slice of french toast and a piece of bbq chicken. We went to the gym but it was so hot and I could really feel the movement of the ship. not a good combo....walked around outside and went to get food. I got a chicken burger n salad but just couldn’t stomach it. The seasickness had set in. We went back to the room, I took 2 seasickness pills, n a 2 hour nap. When I woke up I felt great! We went for a quick walk around the windy top deck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My notes from that night say: We had very slow service at dinner and I was stuck in a chair at our table with no way to get out because of the table so close next to me and someone sitting directly behind me. Our dinner took 2 hours. After dinner we made reservations for the next night at 7:30 and asked for a different section and then we walked around a bit and headed to the casino for our usual roulette. I lost $40 and Nate lost $50 and we decided no more casino for us. we’d rather spend our money in the ports. we got 2 drinks each and split it $21.23 each...meh I don’t feel like I’m going to drink much this trip. (did I keep to that thought?) afterwards we went to solarium for prosciutto snacks and headed to bed...we were back in the cabin by 10:30. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. We walked up to deck 11 to watch sail away party...what there was of one...and a cc member came up and introduced themselves (hi OB and Brenda!) We talked for quite a while before splitting for their dinner and us to go to the gym. After the gym we came back to room and a tech came to fix the safe...all set! this sunset was fire! outfit of the night: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. We went back to the cabin for Nate to take a nap while I uploaded photos to my laptop. We had no bags yet and stuff was left behind in our closet from the last passengers. There was a sheet for laundry on the bed but no laundry bag in the room. Hopefully the cabin steward comes soon... Our muster drill was to be at 4pm in the coral theatre Patrick, our room steward, came by at 3:30. really nice guy. He brought a laundry bag immediately I tried and tried to get the safe to work and no go. kept saying error. We came back from muster to unpack our bags which had arrived and leave clothes out for pressing. There was a $17.49 full bag special. We filled it with 10 of Nates shirts and 2 dress pants (it was returned at 7pm on the following Nate...right in the nick of time for formal night). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. we’re doing the Allure of the Seas TA from Barcelona to Miami on November 1, 2020. We have an incredibly active roll call already so should be pretty interesting! I agree...we’re over Carnival too. Royal’s food is great although this cruise was a bit disappointing but honestly we ate so much in ports it didn’t matter too much Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. We got to the ship at 1 and once again quickly onboard. The fastest embarkations and debarkations we’ve ever had have been at Civi with RCCL. So far surf & stream VOOM is working better than just voom from last year. Our interior cabin, 9013, was ready so we dropped off the carry on containing my 2 bottles of wine and Of course went straight to WJ and walked the ship...It was incredibly windy outside! our cabin was definitely bigger than a Carnival interior, but we missed having a balcony this cruise for sure.

  9. Are y’all ready for me to finally get to embarkation day? The night prior I received an email from the shuttle service with the confirmed pick up time and a picture of our driver (we never had the same driver). We woke up at 10 for our 11am late check out. I don’t think I’ve mentioned the prices I paid for our transfers: to and from the port was 69euro and to and from the airport was 50euro. We had a few minutes to kill so spent 6.50euro at La Baguetteria (nutella croissant and prosciutto sandwich) and shuttle picked us up at 11:20 on the dot. This cute cafe is just outside the hotel. Our driver showed up right on time. Sometimes a shared service can be quite a quiet drive OR it can be like this one and totally awesome. We rode with a couple from Cleveland, Lisa and Roger, celebrating their 35th anniversary and cruising with us and a family from Australia going on the Norwegian Jade. We had great conversation covering a range of topics the whole way to the ship. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
