  1. I like seeing the pictures. They give me hope. Even if the practical side of me then realizes, "it's going to be a long time before you get to do that again."
  2. Our favorite musical guest entertainer was Christopher Watkins, I believe on the Royal Princess. Our favorite Princess band was the pool/party band, New Deal. I think they were also on the Royal Princess.
  3. I would like to thank the OP for giving me the first bit of cruise-related hope in a long time. I just hope that the timetable she and her friend have shared turns out to be realistic.
  4. Thanks for the heads up on the movie. I wasn't aware of it and Harmony was our last cruise before well, you know.😷. We will record it and watch it sometime this fall.
  5. I also forgot to mention Black Pearl Strings, from Allure's early years I believe.
  6. Love DSB but we also really liked Earl Turner a few years back.
  7. Thanks Rockmom, I missed that. Sadly, I don't spend much time here anymore. No real reason to right now, though I do love the humor thread.
  8. Just happened to turn on the webcam in time to find Independence arriving in St. Maarten today, where it seems she has been a fair amount lately. The first few times I've seen the ship on the webcam I assumed it was just getting refueled or new provisions, but the frequency of the visits the last few weeks seems too much for either of those. Does anyone know why the ship is there so (relatively) much? And that brought up another question. With all these ships that are mostly just sailing or anchored except for occasional returns to port for food for fuel, are the captains going to get, for lack of a better word, out of practice with their docking maneuvers? Particularly in the more difficult ports, or those where conditions change frequently? Especially if it turns out that it's the better part of a year before a ship returns to its "usual" ports.
  9. Yes, updates and repairs, though really just more maintenance of the inevitable wear and tear on a high turnover property. Chips in the bathroom furniture, nicks in the walls and furniture, permanent stains, discolorations, etc. The last several times we've stayed there, there have been more and more of these "little" things that wouldn't phase me at all if it were a $70 a night roadside motel, but when you're paying more for a hotel, you expect better quality. I was hoping that with the presumably reduced occupancy the past several months they would take the time to fix these things, which are not necessarily expensive to fix, but more time-intensive that you can't necessarily do when the room is occupied every night. This all said, with cosmetic deficiencies and all, I sure wish the current situation was different and we could all go visit😷. We are really missing seeing 🌴s.
  10. That's why I asked. We still really like the location and the public spaces. But the rooms definitely need to be updated.
  11. Do any of the locals (or anyone else for that matter) know if the hotel is taking what I assume is a much slower than usual time to upgrade the rooms?
  12. Absolutely not. I recognize their importance but physically cannot tolerate wearing one for more than 15 or 20 minutes at a time (yes, I am wearing one now when I go out--I just take care to keep any errands within that time frame). Even if I didn't have that problem, I can't imagine wearing it outside in the hot and humid Caribbean. Especially as a person who wears glasses. The fogging problem is bad enough already!
  13. For dinner tonight I was surprised with some carrots, how thoughtful! Unfortunately they were 🥕, not the ones you pick out in St. Maarten.💎
  14. Love these--not really but you know what I mean. Here's my contribution: Saturday/Sunday: plan: Shop, embarkation, and a beach. 80s and sunny, blue skies. Saturday/Sunday: actual: Laundry, wonder whether I should bother switching my closet for my summer work clothes or if I'll be stuck at home until it's time for the fall clothes again, gray and upper 50s and rainy. No shrimp cocktail or French onion soup. Wonder if I can get a refund? Actual Sunday evening show: reading quarantine humor here on CC. Ok, well, that's better than a lot of the on-board comedians I have seen...
  15. Thanks for the video. I used to think the saddest day was disembarkation day. Now I realized it's the day you cancel a cruise :(
