  1. My co-pay was $80 for mine, which isn't horrible, but I was shocked because it has never been more than $20 before. My friend then told me about Auvi-Q and I was able to get 2 from them FREE! Also, they are about 1/4 of the size to carry, with the same amount in them.
  2. There are several users on here that have epi pens and someone mentioned the high cost of them (I was shocked!) You can receive them for free or whatever your insurance pays from Auvi-Q (maker of them). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JMDFjtXf-B0&t=17s It is where I got mine, as did my cousin and my friend!
  3. They did the IgE blood test on me and I was fine with all of the other nuts and common allergens, but I was highly allergic to peanuts. He said it was unlikely for someone who developed it at 56 to outgrow it, but I can be hopeful!
  4. Yep! I developed my peanut allergy at 56! i LOVE peanut butter, but I am not even tempted to eat it, because it is that bad!
  5. I developed a peanut allergy last summer, at the ripe old age of 56. Someone who ate peanut butter pretty darn near every day of her life. Severe enough that I now carry an epi pen and had to take precautions on our Thanksgiving cruise. The buffet had peanut butter cookies out every day. The IC had them, but you had to ask for them. Actually, you had to ask for most of the cookies. You could see them, so it wasn't like it was some big secret.
  6. Has anyone stayed in this cabin? It is an obstructed view, but it looks like there isn't anything in front of the window. Thanks!
  7. I'm assuming that they are the same, fleet wide. I just paid $3.00 per load to wash and $3.00 per load to dry. If you need soap or dryer sheets/softner, they are $1.50 per
  8. Yikes! We once had our house hit by lightning. It hit the telephone box on the outside of our house, near out bedroom window. We both sat straight up in bed and you could most of our appliances go pop, pop, pop, pop. My hair was standing straight out and you could feel the electricity in the air. So strange!
  9. I was on FB and I saw a post that said that the Sapphire Princess mast was struck by lightning during a storm this morning. It incapacitated the ship's radar. They are anchored off of the eastern part of Singapore Straits, as they can't navigate through the Straights without it. The Captain said it was the first time in his career that he has seen this happen. They are working to get it fixed.
  10. It was 12 minutes for us, from the time we dropped our suitcases with the porter and when we were on the ship. 12 minutes! This was on The Regal for the Thanksgiving cruise. Pretty easy!
  11. I've been keto for almost 2 years (not for weight loss, but because my Oncologist suggested it, but I did drop 10 pounds!). I went off keto during my cruise, but I don't have trouble getting back into ketosis quickly and I don't struggle with carb cravings too bad after doing so. I have a friend that literally can't do a cheat or she is off the wagon for months. If she goes on vacation, she stays keto. That being said, I'm not really a drinker, but she enjoys a Titos with a splash of cranberry and it is supposed to be a keto friendly drink! I agree, avoid all of the "mixers" in the drinks. That is what gets you! Good luck!
  12. I don't remember any Givenchy, but you may find some in port.
  13. that was YOU!!! LOL I should have taken your picture 😂
  14. We received our exactly 3 weeks post cruise. The envelope does look like junk mail.
