  1. I did not get that negative impression after reading Mary Ann & Bill's detailed blogs. Barbara
  2. The 2019 Indian Ocean EXC voyage was indeed interesting with fascinating & thought-provoking lecturers, but I am remembering only one zodiac excursion - Utheemu in the Maldives. More had been planned, but Sri Lanka decided not to allow any zodiac excursions from ms Maasdam. Barbara
  3. I was so disappointed that Peter Carey was not on our Maasdam EXC voyage. It was still memorable, thanks to the wonderful combination of people onboard. Barbara
  4. Our Maasdam EXC voyage from Sydney to Perth to Singapore, to Male and back to Singapore was indeed memorable. We had Aboriginal "ambassadors" from Sydney to Perth and many expert lecturers aboard from December 2018 to February 2019. Unfortunately some of the best Australians left in the first Singapore stop. This evolving experiment depended so much on the current experiences. Barbara
  5. Do you think that they could be sailing to Jakarta to ship your luggage to you??? Barbara
  6. I found the Maasdam's EXC experience to be fabulous. The details were evolving, and I was not zodiac material, but the onboard lecturers and experiences were far above and beyond. We learned so much onboard and saw so much ashore. Priceless memories. Barbara
  7. Our considerate children have also taught our grandchildren very well. No hugs & kisses for months. I should feel thankful and blessed, but it is getting harder and harder to keep my distance. Barbara
  8. In March the use of masks was not encouraged for the general population, because there was a shortage for our emergency responders. When the supply increased, intelligent people learned that it is wise to wear masks. Hopefully we will have better options before much longer. I wish good health to you all. Barbara
  9. Personally, I prefer the combined roll calls, even though against official rules. Barbara
  10. We rode the train once from Frankfurt, Germany to London, England. Part of the journey was on the ferry across the English Channel. Barbara
  11. This week's Safeway ad has Sweet Red Cherries on sale for $2.99 lb. USD here in Washington State. First good sale price. Barbara
  12. I would guess that he would wait until his crew has safely left the ship to go home. Barbara
  13. We need to hope for the best. Barbara
  14. Has anyone heard anything from the Amsterdam WC passengers who boarded the Pacific Princess in Freemantle to sail to Los Angeles instead of flying? That ship arrived last week, and a lady made a nice posting on their roll call, but no mention of the Amsterdam passengers. Earlier in their roll call thread someone estimated there were three new passengers, but another thought it was more like three couples. Hopefully everyone has returned home safe and sound without catching the virus . Barbara

  16. We loved this particular cruise. However the new corona virus is a whole different ball game from the flu. Many mysteries to still sort out. Good luck. Barbara
  17. My heart sank this morning when our newspaper reported that "Indonesia Travel Halted . . . both commercial and charter travel." Then I read that one exception was "repatriation of Indonesian citizens." There is hope. Barbara
  18. Unconditional love and understanding trumps all. Barbara
  19. I really enjoyed reading what Captain Albert was able to share. Loved seeing the masks on the Terra Cotta Warrior replicas. Barbara
  20. We used to have a U. S. Navy Communication Station at Diego Garcia. Barbara
  21. On one of our ship's tours we were shown the floral storeroom and were told that was where any coffin would be stored. Barbara
  22. Kindergirl, try to respect your elders' wishes. It is their lives. Their choices. You have given them lifesaving help that they deeply appreciate. Now, try to listen to them and move forward with your lives. Hopefully they will welcome the Visiting Angels, while preserving their dignity. Hugs and prayers for you all. Barbara
  23. Nothing even resembling a source, but I am remembering reading that one of the deaths was from a heart attack. Barbara
  24. You are correct. Thank you. Barbara
