  1. We love most of the flavors of Fall. Pumpkin, Butternut Squash and Sweet Potatoes are my favorite fall vegetables. Love all the soups, and stews that are so comforting this time of year. Look forward to the Turkey and stuffing with all the side dishes. My favorite dessert is Pumpkin or squash pie. Happy Thanksgiving!
  2. We usually cruise in the fall to celebrate our Anniversary. We have celebrated 5 Anniversaries while cruising so far. This year marks our 50th Anniversary and we are taking a 14 day cruise to the Caribbean to celebrate. It will be a month late but better late than never!
  3. We love NCL and would love to take a tour of the cruise lines newest ship, the Norwegian Bliss. I am intrigued by the fact that the ship has go carts and some amazing water slides. The Bliss is cruising Alaska right now but the itinerary is not one that we would enjoy because it doesn't go to any of the Glaciers but still would like to tour it to see the mega ship.
  4. We have never attended a meet a greet but we do enjoy meeting new people on our cruises. We have made some very nice friends and hope to meet many more. We often dine with others as a way to meet people and also make friends during activities on board. Looking forward to our next cruise to Bermuda on the 27th of this month.
  5. Should have locked the Post Jenn. People are still entering the contest. So where is the new Contest you promised?
  6. Seems like this has become a 3 week contest. Hardly worth entering. Post will likely be closed Monday morning with a winner chosen. One can hope anyway.
  7. Hi Nancy. Why not tell us all which you prefer, Sun and Sand or Cool Winds and Icebergs?
  8. Definitely prefer Sun and Sand. It has been a very cold and snowy winter in the Northeast and we are looking forward to our next cruise. Cruising in Spring and Fall is our favorite time to vacation. We are 39 days away from our 7 day cruise to Bermuda and we can't wait. Here's hoping the weather cooperates.
  9. Hi all, Our last cruise was a 10 day NCL Sun, Re-positioning Cruise to Alaska in Sept. through October, 2017. The Sun is a smaller Ship but we loved it. It will be replaced by the new larger NCL Bliss for the Alaska cruises this year. The nice thing about cruising this time of year is that you get great bargains on items in the shops and on the ship because the season is ending. We sailed from Vancouver, BC up the inside passage to Alaska. We spent 2 days in Vancouver before the cruise and had a great visit. Must experience Fly Over Canada at Canada Place while there. We visited Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay and Ketchikan, Alaska. Victoria, BC, Astoria Oregon and spent 5 amazing days in San Fransisco after the cruise. This was absolutely the most amazing vacation for us. Highly recommend the Alaska Cruise. The weather even cooperated during our cruise, the only rain we had was in Juneau and it was mainly a light drizzle. Temps were mainly in the mid 40's to mid 50's and low 60's. Mendenhall Glacier is a sight to see. We took a bus tour up to the Yukon from Skagway that was absolutely amazing. Skagway is a very nice town to walk around in on your own, Glacier Bay is the most awesome place. We spent a day cruising around there and loved every minute of it. We took some amazing photos of the glaciers and mountains. Ketchikan is quite a nice city to walk around and explore on your own. Creek Street is quaint and we saw the salmon running. We took a whale watching tour from Victoria, BC and saw Orca and humpback whales. We took a tour of the Oregon Coast around Seaside and Cannon Beach from Astoria, that was very enjoyable. Oregon Coast is beautiful. Our five days in San Fransisco topped off our cruise with perfect weather and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Marina District. San Fransisco is a beautiful city with so much to see and do. Hop on Hop Off Bus brings you to all the Major Highlights. Must experience the Cable Cars and Trolleys too. We love cruising and Cruise Critic is our major source of cruise information and reviews. Thank you!
  10. Weather is always unpredictable. We are also cruising to Bermuda the end of April into May and are hoping for nice weather. We did book a balcony so we shall see what the weather is like. Not going to bother trying for the upgrade because you never know where on the ship you will end up and we like where we are now. Wishing you good luck if you do decide to try for the upgrade and enjoy your cruise. We love Bermuda.
