  1. Thanks so much for your lovely comments. Glad you enjoyed them. Yes, he’ll be on the Horizon from the end of February until August next year. Hopefully another trip for us to look forward to 😎
  2. Following along and enjoying your fantastic photos! Looks like a great time so far :)
  3. Thanks so much, hope you had a great cruise despite the change to itinerary. We’ve really missed him recently but not long to wait now, he’ll be home next week 😁
  4. Yes, he will still be there πŸ˜€ They sign off before the move back to Norfolk, I think 13/14 October.
  5. Thanks so much! Glad to hear you enjoyed it. I’ll pass on your kind comments 😊 Thank you, happy to hear you enjoyed it. I’ll pass on your kind comments 😊 Thanks for reading along, glad you enjoyed it. The Eric Clapton guitar turned out to be at the exhibition we went to at The Met on our last day. πŸ˜€
  6. Current shows are Soulbound, Vintage Pop and Latin Nights. The Hipstars are the band, they play with the Have Mercy Horns in the Red Frog Pub. They’re fantastic πŸ˜€ Piano bar beside Red Frog Pub. Violin trio in the lobby and solo guitar/singer there too. Lots going on πŸ™‚
  7. If you download the carnival app you can reserve a table for your time dining without needing to go to deck 5 first. Worked very well when we used it.
  8. Yes, you use your sail and sign card to operate the laundry. Instructions are very straightforward - think there might be a youtube video about it too.
  9. Thank you for your kind comments, glad you enjoyed reading along
  10. I get what you’re saying. And there are lots of very valid negative reviews. I think what the OP means is that it might be nice to have a thread with some positive reviews too. I’m sure there are lots of people who have booked the ship and may be feeling less than excited about it if all they see is the negative side. We experienced some negatives too but we still had a fantastic time πŸ‘
  11. Aww, that is so nice of you. Just pop in to see the band play in the Red Frog Pub, have a wee dance and give them a cheer if you like them 😁 Hope you have a great time πŸ‘
  12. Thank you Happy to hear you enjoyed your visits to Scotland. Thanks for reading along, glad you enjoyed it. I'm sure there are lots of lovely people in NY - maybe just not working in the shops we visited Thanks so much, glad you enjoyed reading along. Hope you find your way to Scotland one day πŸ‘ Thanks so much for your kinds words. I hope I haven't sounded too harsh on my view on some of the people we interacted with. I know not everyone is like that and we definitely come across some ill mannered people here too, it just seemed to be more noticeable than anywhere else we've been. The hotel staff and all wait staff were absolutely fine. Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is somewhere we really wanted to visit but just didn't find the time. We knew we'd be sailing past and got a fabulous view from the ship, so settled with that. If we return Ellis Island is top of our list. I hope you and your family have a lovely cruise if you decide to go on the Sunrise
  13. Thank you, we had a wonderful time and were so happy to see him πŸ˜€
  14. Thanks for your great review, sounds like you had a great time πŸ‘ We really liked the entertainment. It’s the same band that play Vintage Pop and in the Red Frog Pub, we enjoyed watching them. Hope to follow along with your next one πŸ˜€
